People on here like to say that Dana was a savior to mma. While i dont disagree that the fertittas and dana gave mma life when it was on life support. They get way too much credit for making the sport what it is. Hear me out. Dana and co have been dead wrong on many of the business decisions. Womens MMA. For the longest time Dana was anti women in the UFC, even saying that they'll "never fight in the UFC. Fast forward a few years and Ronda is their biggest star and helping the company stay strong after GSP, brock left. Anderson fell off and bones in trouble. He was so anti Gina Carano and even said "women are pretty, we dont want to see them fight". The sport has plateau'd. It hasnt grown any bigger than it was 5 years ago. PPV numbers are the same with watered down cards and forcing many low skilled wmma fighters down the throats of fans. 5-6 record and in the top 10? Sponsorship/reebok deal. It use to be lucrative for fighters and up n comers to get sponsorship. Then the UFC started taxing those. Then conpletely banned them for reebok. Fighters losing money means less talent wanting to be mma fighters = shit fighters/athletes. Strikefarce: he got people believing that strikeforce was some low level mma org with no talent. He lied. He bought up strikeforce and their fighters did very well and some became champs or fighting for the belt. Its sad that people actually believed him. Accusations by former fighters who are now willing to speak out. Recently Wand, Aldo, Tito, and i just read an interview with Cung Le bout the shady stuff that went on. Brock even said dana is nothing compared to mcmahon. Arguing on twitter. What kind of president of a sports org. argues with teenagers and calls them names on social media. My biggest gripe is that he hasnt taken the sport to new heights as claimed. It is highly possible that dana white is the reason why mma hasnt gotten even bigger. And the other thing, fighters arent getting taken care of. They are the real reason this sport has gotten where it is. Please dont compare them to 9-5 mcdonalds workers. This is why the nfl and nba are what they are. They show that their athletes are special and are taken care of, hence the elite of elite will go there. Being a shady company always looking to make the biggest profit will be the downfall of the UFC. Once the nfl implemented policies that were pro athlete, the sport blossomed on its own.
