That said if Dana has the kind of pocket money to be throwing 10k tips at service staff then there is one hell of a surplus of cash coming his way. Seen as Dana's money comes from the Zuffa that to me is a sign there is a lot more money in the budget and maybe they should prioritize some of that money going towards fighters instead of Dana's extravagant spending elsewhere.
Exactly!I don't think Dana is particularly smart. I think he is loud, and has connections, end of story.
No matter how people want to believe that Dana is a genius that made MMA (relatively) popular, fact is that without the Ferttitas he would now be an absolute unknown person, probably working at some starbucks or McDonalds.
It is not that he was so smart, that he had brilliant ideas and is a self made billionaire.
He did not even finished college! lol
He had 2 friends, that had very rich parents. Those 2 friends bought for him the UFC. Then, when the UFC was about to dissappear, one of the friends had an idea that actually changed the whole situation (And Dana was against that idea).
Even in that situation, UFC was not the best or most popular organization. It was PRIDE, but after the Japanese promotion had problems, Zuffa bought it and killed it.
They did the same with all promotions that were becoming a threat, that included Affliction, Strikeforce, WEC. And one day they will do the same thing with Bellator.
Please let's not compare him or even imagine him being in a room with true intellectuals.
Just listen to an interview by Dana White, what the hell will he talk about with some Nobel prize winner??
He can not say anything else beyond "fucking".
His intellectual level may be enough to talk with some 15 year old skater, but definitely not to talk with some intellectual person.
Probably he has never read a book in his life.
Difference is that we got a job because we made an audition/interview alongside other dozens of candidates, who by the way were also well prepared. But we were even better prepared than them, so that is why we got the job.If it wasn't for anyone hiring anyone or anyone taking a chance/risk, where would we be?
No one did us a favour. If today we have a solid job, is the result of many years of studying hard.
Dana White got his job because he was just lucky to have 2 friends that had millionaire parents, and they simply put him there.
