    And studs.
    they’re grown ass men. Just watched an interview where he called DC, age 40, a kid. Just preposterous at this point.

    “Who knows with that kid”
    “That kid is a stud”

    It’s a Boston thing.

    anyone even 2 weeks younger than you is a kid

    He does that a lot. It's a passive aggressive way of diminishing his employees and making himself their superior. In other words, he's being an asshole...nothing new.

    I think Dana called DC a baby because he cries a lot and literraly looks like a full grown baby.

    He says it because the UFC is a big family and Dana feels like he's the father, which he kinda is if you think about it

    He's putting you down, friend. Next time he does it, give him a good bitch slap...and then collect your things and leave quickly.

    He's 50.

    Dana was doing this throughout his 40's including to guys not much younger than him. Part of its just his colloquial promoter speak, but it also comes off pretty passive aggressive.

    The older you get, the more kids there are. I'm 32 & I call 25 year old kids. If it's not done offensively, I don't see anything wrong with it

    He is from Boston, having worked with 2 guys who were originally from Boston, they all say Kid.. too everyone. I used to call them kid back sometimes, no offense taken, they just say it automatically.
