Dana's ego has nothing on Vince's.
Vince goes in there and wrestles, probably suffers tons of injuries. That's far more badass than Dana just sitting on his fat ass shitting on fighters. Not saying that Vince's good or anything.

Dana desperately wants to be a badass fighter, but he's not and he'll never be. He's a loud mouth, uneducated, slimeball who got the job just cause he's a childhood friend of the Fertittas.

I agree, when people think of peyton manning, they think of FOOTBALL not 3 letters.

If anything FOOTBALL fans despise the league for putting in stupid rules, for making dumb decisions and being biased in who gets to play on national games. Real fans stand for the good of the SPORT.

But mma fans seem to think fighters dont deserve more money, and its ok for the ufc to take like 90% of the earnings.

How can the sport grow? Its stayed like this for too long.

Dana's time is up. He's not taking the sport to the next level.

Matt Lindland is overrated: Dana White is correct

Kimbo Slice sucks: Dana White is correct

Bjorn Rebney is shady as hell: Dana White is correct.

Tito is an idiot: Dana White is correct.

Women will never fight in the UFC: Can't win 'em all.

Yes it's annoying but if you hate it that much then stop watching.
Actually it seems mma fans on here side with dana white more than the fighters.

Look at all the times a fighter came out and said anything about the ufc/dana. They get blasted by these org loving "fans"

The distinction between 'good for the sport' and 'good for the UFC' is necessary here. The UFC like any business is all about making money. Ofcourse this wil often conflict with what's good for the sport of MMA.
The UFC buying out smaller organisations and monopolizing MMA is the best example. Good business, bad for the sport.
