    paraphrasing but that's the gist of it.

    Hey UFC fans, congratulations your Dana White is evolving ............... your Dana White evolved into Bob Arum.

    http://www.thesweetscience.com/news/...slams-bob-arum

    "Dumbest fight in history. Bob Arum is a moron. You don't take that fight, you idiot. Why would you do that fight? It's all about the money, that's why. That was a money fight, that's what that fight was done for. He should have fought Bradley. Bradley's the fight they should have done. He would have knocked Bradley out, he would have got his belt back and now he's back in the position he should have been in. [Pacquiao's] one of the best fighters in the world. He goes out and fights Marquez again? Bob Arum is the dumbest promoter in the history of the world."

    Dana is all about the paper, and is too stupid to realize making a statement like this also gets people's attention to how matches get made in the ufc.

    Fuck he's gotta go.

    Or maybe because Pacquiao is already 2-0-1 against him and a win does nothing for Manny's legacy, whereas a loss hurts him incredibly?

    That is the way I read it. But people like to shit on the UFC for some reason. Is that some kind of psychological issue, where people like to hate the thing that they love?

    Pacquiao was the favorite to win this fight too, wasn't he?

    He's already doing this by protecting his champions. Look at who the champs are fighting.

    It was a dumb shit fight. PacMan had absolutely nothing to gain from it. It was a risk-risk situation. He was already up 2-0-1 against him. Who cares if they were close fights..someone's got to lose them. He should have fought Bradley again (complete fucking robbery).

    Put $100 on Marquez, thought hhe won the 3rd fight and was confident with Pac coming off a loss he wouldn't win this either.

    He should have fought Bradley, now there will never be Pac vs Floyd even though it was slim to never happening anyway.

    If they gave Manny an easy fight, Dana would have criticized them for protecting their guy too much and for not giving the fans a fight they want to see. You just can't win with Dana.

    And beating Sonnen does what for Jones's legacy? A win means nothing when the guy is coming off a loss at a lower weight class and has lost 2 title fights in a row at that weight class. But a loss makes Jones and the division look like a joke. How can Dana be so clueless? He is criticizing Arum for what most people on this forum have been criticizing the UFC for for months.

    Are there really "UFC Fans" on a site/forum like this...? I think most people here are MMA fans, especially since the guy representing UFC (Dana White) isn't the most liked guy lol. I don't get these "other MMA fans" with this declaration of some sort of divide between organizations. Maybe I just haven't been here long enough still.

    But yes, we know, Dana's a hypocrite.
