    I mean, what he's doing is kinda obvious don't you think?

    Try and get into headlines, have enough people care, and make him look like a lucrative signing.

    No one outside of hardcore fans actually care about his fights, this is what works these days. Hence the GSP callout and the Dana White beef resurfacing.

    Getting into a feud probably increases his chances more than sucking off Dana would

    There are people that believe being a businessman requires this behaviour. These are people that know zero about business and think the Apprentice is a documentary. You don't have to act like a total jackass to do business. Not at all .

    Woodley and Ben have the same personality (That's why they're best friends) not going to let Dana act out of order and get away with it

    Guy is such a narcissist and egomaniac, so is Dana, but Dana isn't the one asking for something

    Not sure what to think now.

    Option A.

    Transparent reverse-psychology tactic on Ben's part. Make Dana mad enough he actually gives him the GSP fight as a punishment.

    Option B.

    Posturing for the media pulling some Strikeforce-era Nick Diaz shenanigans calling out GSP all the time knowing that fight was almost guaranteed never to materialize.

    Ben isn't exactly the greatest person in the world, in his himetown he is universally reviled for the way he conducts himself.

    WME should not only hire Askren, but also give him Danas work. Funky for president of the UFC.

    We want the funk. Give up the funk!

    At this point, Ben has burned the bridge down and the only option is to go even further to piss Dana off so he gets the fight.

    I actually really like Askren, and would have liked to see him fight in the UFC, but it's as much his fault as it is Dana's. He should have just swallowed his pride and stopped talking shit about Dana 5 years ago. Every time they got close to making something happen, he'd say a bunch of shit about Dana or make a video about Dana and post it on youtube.

    not really. Rogan was saying he was gonna talk to Dana about working something out. the obvious thing would be to tread lightly. bashing him in public and saying he has thin skin is not the way.

    Haha, gotta love Askren.

    He obviously made enough money to just sit back, stir the shit up and keep his name in the headlines just in case.
