this is one of the only times ill probably feel bad for Dana. He clearly was excited going into this event with a good card that had lots of potential and it clearly fell short because of silva. Makes me real curious as to what will happen next for him, personally iam thinking another shot at LHW or a HW fight just to keep it entertaining but no GSP and no title fights

ps ariel helwani has become my favorite reporter by far, hes consistently asking questions that i wanna hear the answers to and he seems to have a good relationship with dana and everyone else

if this happened in america, it wouldnt be so bad..because americans already know the ufc...but they have spend all this money, and partnered with abu dhabi to branch out and go to other countries..and then have people booying at your main event and chanting GSP GSP! thats just bad for business.period.

Well I hope the prelims were good. Like Dana said though no one will remember anything but the main event.

Everybody shouldn't make such a big deal about it! This was a great event, even the first 3 rounds of the main event were superhuman like.

BJ/Edgar was a good fight!

the whole PPV card was very good and exciting!

BJ looked like he was wearing lead boots today, running would defiantly not be a word I would use to describe that fight. Penn/Edgar was war.

Well sir I disagree with you on this because it sounds like you believe those in Abu Dhabi are unfamiliar with the UFC? I don't think it has much to do with the venue, regardless of where it was - people would be pissed.

**** Dana, give Andy challengers who aren't scared to death of him. Maia went for the win for about 15 seconds in the fifth round and didn't fight for the other 24:45. Andy beat the **** out of him in the first 3 rounds and then stopped caring because Maia didn't belong in the cage and was refusing to engage outside of diving at his legs from 6 feet out. Where are all the Maia fans who said he isn't Leites by the way?

Dana White just went up in my book. I like that he actually told the truth a lot of presidents of companies wouldn't have said anything like that.

I think Dana is going to throw Anderson in with someone serious now, not a middle level guy at 205. Maybe Rampage, Shogun possible a serious HW. Anderson has gotten to arrogant for his own good. I never thought he was very humble, I don't know why people ever thought he was, but he is clearly showing that he doesn't have a lot of respect for some fighters.

Would be awesome if Dana fed him to Cain.

Would be nice, I was thinking Cain or JDS. Possible even Mir. Frank has said he wanted to fight Anderson Silva. I don't really care who it is, as long as they aren't afraid of Anderson, everyone he's gotten in with has been beaten before they ever got in the cage. It's getting old and fast, I mean the last guy he got in with that didn't looked scared to death was Henderson and he fought him two years ago.

Here. He isn't and wasn't. He engaged a lot more than Leites did and a lot more than Silva did. Rewatch the Leites fight and rewatch this fight then post. Silva just dodged his punches and side stepped him. I don't know what you expected, though. Maia wasn't going to try to get in a kickboxing match with Silva, he went for a few shots, stalked Silva who was circling around him for 3.5 rounds.

What is most pathetic is Silva was mocking Maia for not engaging and he didn't push the fight at all throughout the 5 rounds.

JDS won't fight him, and I think Anderson would beat Mir to be honest...

i can see why Dana is disappointed, but i think he taking it a little too far saying that Silva should apologize to the fans etc.(which he did anyway). Its like he expects him to do some fantastic KO every time he fights which is just ridiculous, its not Dana's place to tell fighters how to fight and occasionally the best fighters do put on bad fights. I think Dana is way out of line with the way he is acting and refusing to put the belt on him was just really unprofessional by him.

The taunting was really unprofessional by Silva. As was needlessly carrying Maia.
