    Considering his two biggest PPV draws couldn't get clost to the 1.15 MIL ppv buys Pac/Marquez made. Also, what's this talk about putting him in with Bradley because he was an easier opponent? Isn't it the big myth around sherdog/Dana White that boxing doesnt give people the best fights? He pretty much admitted that he would rather protect his fighters than put them in a position to lose. Finally, he's an idiot if he thinks Marquez is some no-name. I was at the MGM. Cheapest ticket was $400 and the crowd was 80-20 in favor of Marquez and the gate was over 10 mil. Dana wishes there was a guy in the UFC that could draw that.

    Dana just has it in for Arum ever since Bob made that oodles comment.

    And he's just tryna sell his brand and trash everything else around him, pretty simple.

    To be fair he does have a sport with hundreds of years of history and is far, far more cuturally ingrained almost worldwide..

    But in the end, they're promoters and everything they say should be taken alongside enough salt to rival what's in the Kehwra salt reserves.

    So if Jon Jones had a foe who most people thought was his equal you'd rather have Jones fight an easier opponent as a fan?

    When the hell did Dana say he'd rather protect his fighters than put them in a position to lose? I thought it was pretty obvious that Dana cares more about money than the fighters. And Arum is a much bigger sleazeball than Dana could ever hope to be.

    White thinks that Pac/Marquez 4 was dumb but Jones/Sonnen and GSP/Diaz are okay.

    I bet Bob Arum wouldn't have put only one fight on the card for his promotion's FOX debut.

    What's that got to do with anything? Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has done over 500k which is what Silva has been doing.

    LOL!

    Pac/Marquez 4 was made after that controversial decision, so in my opinion, that was smart matchmaking. There was more buzz for the fourth fight.

    Dana is talking out of his ass, because he would have done the exact same thing.
    And as a matter of fact, he has done this several times before: Maynard vs. Edgar rematch; BJ Penn vs. Edgar rematch.

    I'm sure there has been more similar examples.

    I pity the fools who eat up what Dana said out of his ass with a spoon. :icon_twis
