    “One of the things when we bought and built the UFC that we always did, being fight fans ourselves. I’m a huge fight fan, Lorenzo [Fertitta] was a huge fight fan, Joe Rogan is a huge fight fan.

    One of the things that we hated was on HBO boxing and some other boxing that they would do. Listen, you’re tuning in and buying the pay-per-view because you love these guys and you respect these fighters, and you’re a fan of the sport. The last thing you want to do is hear somebody ripping them apart.

    “I’m not into it. Rogan is not into it. You don’t see that in the UFC. There will be times where I’m pissed off at a guy, and I’ll voice my opinion on what he did or whatever, or if a fight is really bad or somebody did something.

    “But, what we don’t do is, when a fight is over and a guy loses, we don’t go in and rip them apart. It’s just not our style. We’re fans. We don’t do it. I think Rogan was reacting to that because that’s our philosophy here."

    WFT? Yeah, Dana would never disparage a guy's performance.

    I think he means just not when they're trying to make Conor look good.

    I dont think I recall Dana shitting on someone after being stopped.

    He shits on fighters for shit performances. Hence black beast Ngannou or Anthony Smith against Jones.

    That's not even remotely close to what they are talking about.

    Feel free to shit on Dana but keep it to the actual point at hand.

    Translation :

    "Cowboy is a buddy of mine and we'll Get Ya with our connections if you say bad sh*t.
    If you wanna say bad sh*t about bunch of other fighters who are on our sh*t-list, then sure, that's ok."

    "Every time Tyron Woodley opens his mouth he shoots himself in the foot."
    "If you ask fans if they want to see Woodley fight again, I think it would be a flat-out 'no'. Who wants to pay to see Tyron Woodley fight again?

    Even though Dana doesn't really apply this "rule" to himself. I see his point.

    It is actually one of the problems with some fighters. Every time they are being talked about, it's positive. Except from us nerds and other fighters.
    It's like they can do no wrong, they don't have shit defense, they just get caught. They don't neglect their ground game, they had a lapse in concentration etc...

    I think that's the difference and what prevents MMA from going really mainstream (and particularly the UFC). All other sports, there is no hesitation or problem with critiquing and pointing the faults and mistakes of the losing sides, whereas in MMA it's all about being nice. Maybe the fact it's individual makes it harder compared to team sports, but still, it's problematic because then, all the content developed around it basically is shilling. Just like pro-wrestling.

    Well obviously Dana has never been on sherdog where after a fight the loser gets trashed and belittled for at least a week afterwards.

    Another reason why boxing is a far superior sport, there is none of this sugar coating or moral victory bs, if you shat on bed you should be called out, you are a grown ass man for fuck sale, take it like a man, go to the gym and perform better next time.

    They sound like a bunch of snowflakes that are offended when they get slaped in the face with FACTS, kudos to the boy Stephen A. Smith for keeping shit real, Hopefully he continues with this trend in the future
