I honestly hate Dana White, like many others - a very long story for another day I think. But... anyway, I randomly just watched this fight back and I'm a little frustrated. I know this event was in Abu Dhabi and it was supposed to be a huge showcase to the Middle East that MMA for a great thing and to promote investment - which they did get anyway and now 10% of the UFC is owned by an Asian media company a.k.a. rich Arabic guys. Anderson was obviously a gigantic favorite in this fight and it was a gift for him. No I know Dana wanted him to go out there and just smoke Maia, so he and Lorenzo could smile and clink glasses with the Arabs and say "Look at how great this guy is" - but Silva didn't conform. Now my problem is this, can you remember the HUGE backlash from Dana for months about Anderson after this? - Refused to give him the belt. - Said it was the most embarrassed/disgusted he has been since owning the UFC etc. - Went on a mini-smear campaign for a few months where he almost wanted Anderson to apologize for it. WHERE IS THE MAIA CRITICISM? HE THREW NEAR TO NOTHING IN 25 MINUTES! Anderson was clearly on cruise control, and yes could have probably put Maia away in 2 or 3 but I cannot understand how the UFC put an undersized MW with zero striking, minimal offensive wrestling and only a BJJ game into a fight with the "GOAT" and YOU complain when Anderson doesn't destroy him. YOU MADE THE FIGHT! Quite clearly Maia didn't deserve to be in there, quite clearly, but I hate the way Dana goes on at some of his best talent and makes them feel like they must do A, B and C - Where was the GSP hate for LnP? Not once have I heard Dana criticize that or GSP's jab and leg kick style. Dana is a fucking hypocritical dick who needs to stop this BS, we can all see through it. PS. Weed is a "Performance Enhancing Drug" ... but Cocaine isn't!? Why do club goers take coke, supposed to enhance something surely. Hey... in the words of DW... "Not me!"
