Please, this is bullshit from dana. SF was doing fine as a business, zuffa bought it, raped the roster and underpromoted it.
People hating on Pashak's English-as-a-second-language posts fail to realize how badly zuffa mismanaged the org. It could have been successful, they failed to make it successful. They put more effort into that utter failure of a reality show than they did an org that could have established the very concept of a feeder org.
SF had incredible moments, but none of them happened under zuffa. It sucks that another great org--this one with a storied combat sports history nearly a decade longer than the UFC's--is going under due to more mismanagement.
Fuck coker for fucking this up, but fuck dana for fucking with the roster and then pretending that he had nothing to do with the failure. And fuck Lorenzo for continuing to allow this bullshit to happen.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
