In a sport (and more importantly division) where anything can happen, it is pretty fucking stupid of anybody to make assumptions.

If Dana doesn't like that style of fighting he has to work harder to change the rules with the NSAC and stop cutting people after 1-2 losses. It's his own fault a majority of UFC fights suck to the masses, he's got millions in the bank, he needs to pay somebody clever to fix the problem!

Dana thinks every HW fight shouldn't last more than three minutes unless it looks like Hunt-Silva.

Not to mention Reem's contract is huge.

His comments have been way across the line lately, and although I think this guy has always behaved like a dick, he is going nuts nowadays.
He's really going to impact the UFC's stock if he keeps doing those kind of stupid worthless comments after and between each event.
Dana is stressed out because he lost all of his PPV stars and no one cares about all ofthe crappy cards the ufc puts out these days. He should be thanking Overeem and Mir, it was the only fight on the card I cared about and it's the only fight I watched.

It was a planned out, strategic beatdown. He showed he was miles better than Mir in every facet of fighting and did so without putting himself at risk. Mir's toughness in that fight is being underrated too. He took a hell of a beating - even if it was doled out at a steady rate over 15 minutes. People are acting like it was LNP. He was constantly dropping GNP. Dana has never been an Overeem guy to begin with. He said all of his dealings are with Lorenzo (who likes him) because Dana and AO have butted heads numerous times.

Dana's always pissy when cards turn into decision-fests.

Every single prelim went the distance.

I agree with both reasons as being why Dana is upset. However, it was a dominant performance in a fight he needed to win. It's not like he just laid on Mir. He gave him a steady dose of punishment over 15 minutes.

Overeem literally fought the smartest fight possible. I doubt he gives two shits if it pissed Dana off.

Dana is a fuckin pleb
, has zero clue what is going through these guys minds.

But Dana makes the decision if he lives or dies.

Could be Dana had Reem call out Brock to help intice him to sign on the dotted line.
Just saying, Brock equals $$$ to the UFC.

It was a great performance by Overeem, I was a little pissed because I had a bet on him winning by KO but it was still a great night for him.
