    Default Dana White Disses Bob Arum

    White has consistently bashed Arum and boxing promoters in general for not making the best fights possible, so it's hypocritical that he's now blaming "Uncle Bob" for putting Pacquiao in a tough match. Dana likes to talk about how the UFC's mission is to give MMA fans the best fights possible, even though he clearly supports "cash cows" being protected.
    Don't act surprised though, we've all known about how Dana likes to protect his top money-makers for quite some time.
    Just ask Johny Hendricks.
    Dana White Disses Bob Arum; Calls Him a 'moron' for Making Pacquiao-Marquez 4 - Yahoo! Sports

    Looks like even the mainstream fight fans are noticing and commenting on the match making of late. How's the heat hold in that glass house Dana?

    When it was announced I thought the fight made no sense (Pacquiao/Marquez 4). Even if Pacquiao won, the fight still made no sense. He should have had the immediate rematch with Bradley, no question.

    Dana is right. Arum should have made some absolute mismatch for Pacman. Such as Rousey vs Carmouche.

    I am not defending Arum though. Both Arum and Dana are liars and they do not give a single fuck about the sport. I hope they drown in their own money.

    Your right dana, the ufc, and ronda should have just waited around for someone to finally take the fight against her(rousey).........................cmon son, its not the UFC fault everyone is ducking Rousey (yes, everyone minus carmouche)

    Whats with your hate for rousey? You hate that shes the main event, you hate that she was given her belt (much like cruz and aldo), and you hate that shes fighting Carmouche...?

    hahahahahaha Are you serious???????
    Who is ducking Rousey??? Whoo???
    Even Cyborg Santos said that she would make 135, but she just needed a little bit more of time.

    Miesha Tate said that she would happily accept a fight with Rousey, but that UFC never called her to offer that fight.

    They were in negotiations with Sara MacMann and for some reason the fight was not made.
    Do you have actual facts to say that everybody ducked Rousey, and only carmouche accepted???

    I do not hate Rousey at all. I hate her personality, but that is a whole different thing. She is a great fighter (at least in the ground), and it is great that she will be in the UFC.
    She received the UFC belt without 1 single fight within the org (To the people that love to remind that Aldo and Cruz received the same treatment, I also disagreed with that decision), and now she will be in the main event against a girl that has nothing to do there.

    I could understand the decision to make her fight in the main event if her opponent was Cyborg Santos, because it would be the biggest WMMA fight of all time and everybody wants to see that fight. However she is fighting Liz Carmouche, this is an absolute mismatch.

    My hate is no towards Rousey, I don't like her personality at all, but at least she is a professional athlete and I respect her for that.
    My hate is towards Dana White who constantly disrespects the fighters and fans.

    So because Cyborg said she would finally fight at 135 but it would take "some time" Rousey (who is the champion) must sit out and wait for the challenger that is Cyborg? Makes sense I guess?

    Meisha Tate SAID she didn’t get offered the fight so this MUST be true? And Dana is going out of his way to lie to the media and say he offered her the fight, come on dude take your Dana white hate blinders off its starting to
    affect your judgement.

    Sara MacMann negotiations fell through, we can guess for days why that happened, but if you are offered a title fight your answer should always be YES. Why would anyone in their right mind turn down a title fight, if they were not in fact ducking the Champion? Everyone says GSP is ducking Hendricks, yet you will sit there and actually argue that these women aren’t ducking Rousey? You don’t actually believe that do you?

    The fact that she was given the belt is irrelevant. She is clearly the champion of the 135 division, just like Aldo was (and still is) and just like Cruz was (and still is).

    Championship fights are the main event; get over it, even if the challenger is "unworthy" of being there as you put it.

    It's because she's a woman.
    Pashak is the type of asshole that believes her place is in the kitchen and not the cage.

    You are really the biggest moron ever in this site. Congratulations dick sucker.
    Now do the world a favour and commit suicide.

    First of all, it is the only fight that really makes sense for Rousey.
    And secondly, it shows that Cyborg is not ducking her.

    Meisha Tate SAID she didnít get offered the fight so this MUST be true? And Dana is going out of his way to lie to the media and say he offered her the fight, come on dude take your Dana white hate blinders off its starting to
    affect your judgement.
    Ok so in your opinion Tate is lying.
    Why you think it is Dana who is telling the truth? Specially when it is a fact that Dana has lied so many times?

    Sara MacMann negotiations fell through, we can guess for days why that happened, but if you are offered a title fight your answer should always be YES. Why would anyone in their right mind turn down a title fight, if they were not in fact ducking the Champion?
    As you said, we can guess for says why negotiations failed.
    You do not have any fact to firmly say that MacMann ducked the Rousey fight.
    I can also say that maybe UFC saw Macmann as someone dangerous for Rousey, and they prefered to gave her a much easier fight since they obviously want Rousey to win.
    We do not know the real reason of why the MacMann fight is not happening.

    Everyone says GSP is ducking Hendricks, yet you will sit there and actually argue that these women arenít ducking Rousey? You donít actually believe that do you?
    You do not have any proof at all to say that those women are ducking Rousey.
    And I do not agree that GSP is ducking Hendricks, I have not read any interview where GSP says that he does not want the Hendricks fight.
    And even though, remember that it is not GSP, Rousey, Carmouche or Hendricks who make the fights. It is Dana WHite and Joe Silva that make the fights.

    To say Carmouche is getting the shot cause the UFC wants complete mismatch against Ronda Rousey so she doesnt lose is absurd. You forget Carmouche got the title shot because she asked for the fight. And although I am picking Ronda to beat her, we have to keep in mind she was an unknown when she fought Marloes Coenen and was dominating her round after round until Marloes pulled off an Anderson Silva-esque hailmary Triangle Choke for the win in the 4th round. She has skills, let's respect her for that.

    Tate got her arm broken off not too long ago against Ronda. Whether she is lying or 'Dana' is lying about being offered the fight, regardless, she fought Ronda and got her arm broken off. She doesnt deserve a rematch yet, especially coming off a horrendous performance against Julie Kedzie, where she pulled off a miracle sub.

    I dont know much about Sara McMann, but I've heard around the boards she is legit. However, she hasnt really fought anyone of name to deserve a title shot yet. And although Ronda got her title shot having less fights and not fighting anyone significant, she talked her way (Chael Sonnen style) into a title shot against Tate (who agreed to the fight just to shut her up), which allowed SF to make the fight. I think it would be best for McMann to keep getting better and be hopeful that Carmouche gives Ronda a tough fight so she can find holes in Ronda's game. I dont want her to smack talk her way into a fight, cause I find that petty and cheap way of getting a title shot. It's sad that Ronda, Diaz, and Sonnen all have done it thus far.

    As for Cyborg, yea I agree she is the toughest and most worthy of fight to make against Ronda. However, I dont understand why you are pushing for that fight? Didnt most of us, and you included, say that Overeem should have to fight someone AFTER COMING OFF A SUSPENSION DUE TO STEROIDS before fighting for the title? Shouldnt Cyborg, who is in the same situation as Overeem first fight someone at 135lb, win, and make us all believe she tests clean while doing it, and only then fight Ronda?
