    In dana's world, there is an enormous difference between how Viacom is tying up Alvarez with red tape and how he once tied up Couture. dana wants Eddy in the UFC, and since Viacom won't give him up, now they're the enemy. Simplistic? dualistic? myopic?

    It doesn't matter to a great business man.

    Same thing happened with Strikeforce.
    Before they started signing big names, Dana said that he liked very much how SF was doing business and they were doing the right thing and all that stuff.
    As soon as SF signed big names, his opinion immediately changed and eventually Zuffa buyed (and then killed) them.

    Now he sees that bellator has great fighters and they do some very nice shows, so he obviously does not like that, I am sure that he would love the Ferttitas to buy them and continue the monopoly.

    Lot of good points made here. They must be infringing a little on the UFC that DW is speaking of them. I do agree TV promotions don't make good fight promoters as they want to script to much.

    Dana was not that father but he most certainly was the nanny.

    You joined this forum in 2006, it means that you have been a MMA fan for at least 7 years, and you really do not know the story about how Dana was absolutely against TUF?
