    Phrasing. But yeah, we've heard this plenty of times before and Dana has always firmly denied announcing bouts before an agreement was signed but here's Chael confirming what we already basically knew. He told the same story on an episode of his podcast.

    Tough one, two of the most credible people in MMA.

    Dana is Dana, but isn't Chael ex-felon, real snitch, and a cheater, so...

  9. Did he ever address the ridiculous short grabbing by Anderson in 2nd fight?

    Should have been an immediate point deduction for silva imo

    Chael isn't the most honest guy but I don't see any reason for him to lie about this. Usually when he's being dishonest, it's usually in a joking way (nog bus story) and/or very noticeable.

    Agree! However, there’s no “ex-felon”. Dude is a convicted felon. Can’t vote, possess a firearm, nor travel to a great many countries

    Dana also likes to announce hospital visits before checking with the fighter. GSP after the Hendricks fight

    That makes Dana White look like an idiot. Why would a shrewd business man give the fighters so much negotiating leverage? LOL
