    Branman- dude i am seriously jealous of you. Not only did you meet Pat but you obviously live in/near chicago. I am a huge cubs fan and make an annual pilgrimmage to see them play. I got lucky and they came to minneapolis this year so it saved me a few bucks. But still that had to be awesome meeting pat and all. Did they do any training or was it mostly a watch and learn type of seminar?

    i had the pleasure of meeting Pat Militech today at an IFL seminar at the chicago comic-con and he was really cool and i mentioned the UFC situation and he basically shrugged it off. he kinda gave the impression of like a "just ignore him and he'll go away" mentality towards dana. what's funny is dana's always saying how he really wants the smaller promotions to succeed to better the sport and such but just about every smaller promotion has said at some point or another how dana's making stuff hard for them.

    Yeah I don't think the UFC bases their entire schedule around the IFL that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.Maybe Dana did this one on purpose maybe he didn't.The UFC is doing one ppv a month in 2007 and they have a lot of them already planned out.Hughes vs. GSP was chosen for September.It's purely speculation of whether or not it's a coincidence.

    you have to give it to white he is a damn good business man he gives you the fights you wanna see and is trying his damndest to make ufc break the million dollar ppv buy rate which if wand/chuck happens im sure he'll kill that mark because everyone will buy that wether u love him or hate him you have to admit hes damn good at what he does and i think it was a smart move on his part to schedule it on that night but im not all that sure he did it on purpose i mean they set there ppv dates way ahead and arent gonna change them because fucking pat is fighting

Liddell, Hughes, Ortiz, Rampage, Silva, even Gracie and Rutten are guys that people will pay big money to see, therefore they get paid big money. The UFC is what's driving this sport in America right now, like it or not. The guys they put in fights are the guys we talk about in this forum, and then when the fight sucks we blame the UFC. If new fans come to this forum and see everyone hatin on the UFC, and it's the only show they ever get to watch, it'll be hard to grow a fanbase any larger than just hardcore fans.
    I couldn't agree more. Aside from a couple intellilgent posts basically all i am hearing is the typical bitching and whining about Dana White. Give it a rest already. The guys is a BUSINESSMAN. He makes good sound BUSINESS decisions. And for all of you that say "well if they paid what pride pays they would have better cards" well you know what aside from the top fighters i don't think pride pays shit. They don't publish the fighter purses so it is pure speculation on your part as to what they are paying fighters.

    I mean fuck rampage is always saying show me the cheddar. He "only" got paid 100k for WFA. It pride pays so much he probably would have made more staying with them. Give it a rest and grow up.

    Lets see... IFL smashes the North American MMA attendence record. Dana white reply's "duh... never hurd of dem". ROFLMAO!!!! NO Dana! Stop stop, you're killing me! Damned, Dana has a new signature move "the denial-ator". Maybe he IS a fighter himself... and maybe I'm a Chinese jet pilot.
    How is Strikeforce connected to the IFL?

    juice da god
    i dont care what happens to the ufc or ifl, wfa, pride, kotc because the SPORT of MMA will live on no matter what

    Actually the UFC is the biggest mma organisation in the US poss the world, therefore they get exposure on Spike TV etc.

    However that does not give them the right to behave this way. It's never a good idea to bury your head in the sand & watch as Dana White dictates how this sport is run. If it were dictatorships would not be so controversial.

    If new fans log on to forums like this they'll see that people have different opinions of fighters in the UFC as well as other promotions. I agree that some people here will criticise some fighters no matter what they do (UFC or otherwise), but that's their perogative. Hopefully these new fans will learn that UFC does not mean mma (& so will Dana White!) & buy ppv's from Strikeforce (as an aside poeg, I think this is who you were thinking of when referring to the smashing N.American attendance records) or some of the other organisations.

    Please don't misinterprate what I'm saying cos I like the UFC fights/show. I just don't like the way it's being run by this baby, Dana White.
