    All the UFC's colorful character non-fighters ended up getting done dirty except Rogan. Liddell, Watson, Goldberg, Stitch, Big John (I think, I never was clear on why he suddenly stopped reffing for the UFC.)

    The name he chose for the org doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

    Liddell and Hughes got a great opportunity with those corporate jobs that Zuffa gave them. It's not Dana's fault that Endeavor refused to keep paying them for doing nothing.

    Forrest Griffin had the same deal, but they actually kept him on because he does real work for the company.

    Well if we're going to get technical Dana probably wasn't responsible for any of those guys departures, or anybodies after them. But he's the figure head of the company so when shitty shit happens he catches the blame.

    Didn’t he carry around a scale and try to get fighters to weigh in for him? I remember Chael complaining about that
