I like Coker. He seems like one of the better guys in the sport. But I'm not sure he has the stones to run the UFC. You have to look past Dana's BS. If you don't watch scrums and press conferences, it isn't that tough to ignore. Sure he says some shitty things sometimes, but he is good at what he does. He is dedicated and works a tough schedule that most executives don't want to. Plus he has the stones to get shit done.
Coker had trouble getting his HWs to fight each other. He had to create a GP to get them all to fight. It's like having the lunatics running the asylum.
