    They are not guaranteed a contract as far as I know.

    Yeah, we've heard about 4 times already.

    Breaking news, nonetheless.

    He's Conor McGregor's boyfriend.. Do you expect anything less from the guy? He has his pictures of him hanging all over his bedroom, just like his office.

    Meh, sure, he had goot footwork, good skills overall. He would be a run of the mill fighter in 145. I don't want anyone who is decent to get into the UFC. He would make 0 splash in the UFC.

    He was handily winning that round and fight, there was really no need to "secure" anything.

    Exactly. This guy isn't going to make it far in the UFC with that attitude. If that's his mentality, he'll fold once he faces a top 20 fighter.

    No one said a win equals a contract. There's a lot of Sherdonking over this.

    Its comparable in boxing to saying you threw some body shots instead of head shots at the end of round 12 so were not gonna sign you. Its bs.

    But yeah, your right he was easily winning the fight but takedowns are offensive moves and a legit part of mma. For Dana to come out and say that's why he isnt signed, is crazy talk. Might as well just remove takedowns from mma alltogether then. Call it kickboxing:)
    Just my 2 cents

    Meh. Fight was meh, the guy was meh, and ultimately, Dana felt his strategy was meh.

    Is normal. Fuck that guy

    Dana hates that his name is interchangeable with a female. He hates Brendans too

    No different than any job interview.

    There's 20 applicants, just being skilled and competent doesn't necessarily get you the position if they're looking for a super star.

    The takedown just sealed his mediocrity, in Dana's opinion.
