We get it. You hate Dana. You give him ZERO credit for the state of MMA today. As a previous poster said, since this is just a bash Dana thread, you could have done it in one of the 50 other threads devoted to trashing Dana. Clearly you seek attention...

The game is simple. When given two statements, the reader must figure out which one is fact, and which one is opinion.

First Statement:
-MMA and the fighters would not currently exist without Dana White's UFC.
-Dana White's UFC would not currently exist without MMA and the fighters.

Which is fact, which is opinion?


Second Statement:
-MMA Fighting would end without Dana White's UFC.
-Dana White's UFC would end without MMA Fighters.

Which is fact, which is opinion?
The "first statement" and the "second statement" are both a pair of statements.

Phrases like "currently exist" and "mma fighting" are both awkward and redundant.

The first statement deals with the illusion that Dana White's UFC is the reason why MMA exists.

The second statement deals with the illusion that Dana White's MMA is necessary for the continued existence of MMA.

Um, no.

Things can have existed in the past, saying 'currently' puts a time on it, nothing redundant about that.

Martial Arts and Fighting are NOT the same thing.
