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.
Zuffa mismanaged it on purpose so the Showtime deal would collapse in a manner than would not make them look like a monopoly.
