    Not my screen. Just found it relevant to the current Poirier/Ferg saga lol. What do you think? How many times was he right in these claimings?

    To be fair, in at least 2/3 of those cases the fights never materialised so hes not entirely wrong in what hes saying.

    The interesting thing is that he only says it about the Top Draws in the UFC. However, it could be due to selection bias from whoever compiled the list.

    I don't think any reporters are asking him why the Ben Sosoli Vs Jarjis Danho fight isn't happening.

    Dana White can say whatever he wants because the majority of fans will believe him anyhow so whats the downside with lying?

    He's right. They don't want to fight - for low pay

    He is 100% right about saying "Fighter A doesn't want the fight." It works for him because most people are to dumb to ask why? Because Dana White is an authority figure, most people just run with his narrative. Especially, when Dana White is saying it about a fighter they don't like.

    Dana White is just taking advantage of fan stupidity and emotional attachments/despise of fighters. LOL

    Surely you knew the answer to this before you posted.



    Really think about why that might be.

    Does any other promoter crap on his own fighters as much as Dana does?

    He is not lying. He is telling the truth by omitting the context, which is a financial dispute. The fans only care when Dana White is calling a fighter they love a "duck." When it is a fighter they don't care about, then the fans run with Dana White's agenda.

    Dana White knows this, and he takes full advantage of this. LOL

    Orrrr, he gets asked questions about fights fans want to see and he explains why the two havent agreed to fight.


    Its not as deep as you're making it.

    He is notoriously considered a liar in the MMA community.

    Hard to deny this. I remember the whole Reem/JDS debacle. Then Reem knocked him out...

    You are making it deep. For me, Dana White's tactics are obvious.
