    My biggest problem with Dana is his way of suing opposing promotions out of personal spite. ROTR & IFL have both had legal problems because of him, not the UFC.

    Business is business, I don't blame Dana for trying to avoid the fighter pay situation as long as he can. And that's where most of the guys who he "ran off" had the problems. Almost all of them actually. You have to remember Zuffa lost money for years promoting UFC, and really only stuck with it because they love the sport and want it to succeed. Is it bullshit the amount fighters get paid? Absolutely, but as a BUSINESSMAN you have to do what's best for business, and as long as he's able to not only get away with it, but watch his company take off like a rocket in the process....why as a businessman would he jump to change that? Until something major happens, which the ground work to that could be being laid as we speak with Strikeforce, WFA, IFL, PRIDE, K-1, HERO's, etc. throwing money all over the place, and more so than usual to American fighters and for American promoted cards now, until something happens when it's hey fork over the dough or not have enough talent to continue to be head and shoulders above the rest the dominate MMA company in North America...until they're in a position where they have to step up and address those issues, they're simply not going to.

    Everyone gets ran off in every business, I just dont get the jift that Dana is about Martial arts as opposed to Entertainment, atleast with Pride its hard to argue that there about the sport and not the $$$.. with Dana I feel hes about the $$$ with his comments and how he treats his fighters.. I just dont like the guy

    hes also ran out a lot of good fighters, he also treats his fighters like puppets, he also is completely brain-dead about the sport of MMA, hes bringin in a lot of new MMA fans but thats all he and the UFC is good for now-a-days.. bring in new MMA fans who will eventually branch off to pride fighting.

    Two words.. Dana White.


    The sooner Dana is out of the UFC, the better.. this guy chases off every good fighter the UFC has, Hermes Franca, Frank Shamrock, Tito Ortiz

    Frank is a MIDDLE weight btw, i'd love to see him move up to LHW though hes a great fighter.. one of the best to fight in MMA, still undefeated in UFC Combat.
