    We've seen how IMG-WME is pushing out what made me and others like the UFC.
    Get ready for the dark ages part 2 once Dana and Rogan are gone.
    Just my opinion again.

    Yeah Dana and Rogan are underrated. They are elite in what they do, unfortunately, Sherdog is bitter about them

    & WTF do you think Dana will be gone?
    He makes more now per year then he did under Fertitta's & WME are his agents

    This year he made about $25-30m

    He may not pay his fighters and he may want the UFC to make as much money as possible but he’s clearly not in it for the money. He has more money than he could spend on a lifetime.

    They have always tried to push certain fighters way before WME IMG came along.

    However, they do need to control the title/ranking situation a little bit better.

    The WME can't do worse to the fighters than Dana and the fart bros did.

    But they could do worse to the sport if they go from half sports entertainment to full sports entertainment.

    I hope they kick Dana the fuck out.

    what made me like the UFC... finally pro-wrestling turned into a sport ... my thoughts as a kid in the 1980's thinking "what if a bad man tourney was more than kick boxing"

    Of course he is
    He makes more per year now then he did before
    UFC went up in value 30% since the sale in a "bad year" because WME is better at money management

    Dana worked for the Fertitas from 2001-2016 and made $360 Million for his share of the company. On top of that he earned a salary of ??? making $24 Million per year as a capital gain which is likely taxed at a lower rate then income. He also made salary on top so he did OK before.
