    I've been saying it for years, Dana needs to go. He is egotistical ,greedy, corrupt, and just paints a bad picture for MMA. His level of pettiness and vindictiveness are freakin hilarious for someone who Is president of a multibillion dollar company. And I'm sure most of the fighters hate him.

    But on the other hand I don't believe anyone else can be president of the UFC and make it work the way Dana can. Part of the reason why Dana has been so successful with the UFC is because the nature of the sport/business requires a little bit of street smarts and social IQ. Dana has these things. He was brought up in the slums of Boston and he barely graduated high school. Be he was involved with fighting from a young age and knew fighter personalities well. No one deals with fighters the way Dana can. It's a mix of business savvy and streets smart. A kid from Harvard business school would shit his pants trying to Dana's job.

    It makes me sad to say but Dana will have to stay. The moment he leaves the ship will start sinking.

    Dana gets too much credit and criticism for the UFC. There are lot of people in the background that made the UFC successful abs have played a part in short changing fighters but we don’t know who they are because they aren’t the spokesperson.

    Yes there's a lot of pieces behind the curtain that make the show run, but Dana really was the difference maker from 2001-2007 when it took off. Fertitas were literally starting the process of shutting the UFC down right before TuF got underway. And the rest is history
    UFC ain't some regular sports league. There's no unions so you have to deal with fighters on an individual basis. It's a pain in the ass. Just look at what Dana's dealing with regarding Ngannou. It's now spilled out into the media. Before that it was Diego Sanchez and Fabia. And then before that it was Jones not wanting to fight Francis and leaking stuff to the media. A regular business guy would have no fuckin clue how to deal with these fighters

    Good. Hopefully another org takes over. One fc with it's legal knees on the ground and muay thai would be awesome in US.

    There are several billion people on the planet and probably a couple thousand CEO types with charisma who could do his job. We aren't talking about some one of a kind genius or athlete here.

    Once in a lifetime UFC bigwig.

    J/K, can't stand the jerk. I think anyone could do a better job. The UFC is doing well in spite of his running the helm. Just think what an organization it could be if they had someone of character running the show.

    Because a regular business guy wouldn't try to screw them over and over. Why doesn't it happen in boxing, high profile boxers like Fury, Wilder, Joshua, Canelo, GGG never complain about pay. Why is that ? Because they get freakin paid that's why

    Yeah, we end up with some Woke Left Prick who makes fighters kneel and wear BLM tees.

    Dana keeps the BS politics out of the UFC, so he's fine with me.

    Coker, Sefo, Randy, Rich Franklin would all be more than capable of doing Dana's job. He's a red manbaby with a hooker and gambling addiction, he's not special.

    I recall calling for Scott Coker to take his place.
    I still think it would work better.

    Dana could work on the background, but not as the fact of the UFC nor as the interface with fighters.
    That would work out amazingly well, I think!
