    It seems that everyone who defends Dana says the UFC wouldn't be where it is today without his promotional prowess.

    Imho the UFC would be even bigger today with a different promoter. Coker perhaps

    Say what you want about Dana, but the UFC wouldn't be on the map without him. MMA was dying at a very fast rate. Nobody wanted to touch it until DW promoted it every chance he could get.

    He had the financial backing to make it happen. He's done some very questionable things in the past and turned the UFC into a circus he rather than a legitimate sport. I just can't get over his behavior and think someone else would have done it better

    He's a jackass. You see the way he constantly shits on fighters and legends that helped to make UFC what it is today?

    Yea, so good for the sport.:rolleyes:

    Without DW convincing the ferittas to first buy the UFC then finance TUF the UFC would not be what it it today

    Dana making UFC popular is what led to WME swooping in and turning the whole place Hollywood. So really, he's done the most harm.

    He tirelessly sells the sport and keeps the UFC in the spotlight. He is part of the brand and that brand is worth a lot.

    They made him the public face but Dana thrived as the public face.

    How do you know that though? Maybe the current owner just sucked, and Dana was better, but other promoters would've been better than dana.

    If Coker was in charge the UK would probably still be watching tape delayed UFC PPV's on Sunday evenings.

    People may not be a fan of Dana, which is fine. But you can't take away what he's meant for MMA. That being said, it seems like he really doesn't give a sh*t the past few years.

    Dana is the pubic face of the UFC.
