    How much better/more appealing would it be?

    I believe matchmaking would be less dumb first of all.
    He also speaks with more intelligence than Dana (i know, wouldn't be too hard). Dana has a constantly annoyed tone and Coker in mainstream media, eg First Take would probably represent the company better.
    I'd definitely miss the unintentional comedy Dana brings to the table though.

    This may look like a troll thread but it isn't.

    Yeah, at least they'd be actually good.

    When Dana takes over the White House.

    There'd be cleaner language in interviews!

    Dana is a legend. Let Scott run the minor leagues and then sell them to Daddy Dana if he makes them succesful.

    Fighters would probably get paid more and be allowed to have sponsors on their shorts...

    I’ve never been able to take him seriously since the infamous Bonnar-Ortiz promo.

    Less dumb matchmaking? Have you seen Bellator in the last few years?
    It's not like they're better than the UFC in that department, they both bring out the most ridiculous matchups from time to time.

    Having old guys who should have retired 10 years ago fighting in terrible tournaments...... it'd be great.

    Strikeforce was not better than the UFC
    Coker was at the UFC for 3 years.
    Bellator is not better than the UFC.

    I don't know why Coker gets such an amazing reputation among some Sherdoggers for simply not using bad language words and not having Dana's je ne sais quoi.

    Something as small as that can change the perspective of a brand. Think Papa Johns

    It would suck. People have to either love you or hate you as a promoter. People are indifferent to Coker. It is like he doesn't even exist.

    Guys like Eddie Hearn and Dana White are necessary. Most fighters are not able to promote themselves. So, they need a brand that is bigger than them to promote them. Coker is not that guy.
