    About five years ago, Dana said that if you were in the EA MMA game, you won't be in the UFC. Here are the fighters that have been in UFC since:

    Arlovski
    Barnett
    Couture
    Overeem
    Werdum
    Hendo
    Mousasi
    Kennedy
    Lawler
    Cung Le
    Mayhem Miller
    Rockhold
    Shields
    Souza
    Diaz
    Woodley
    Melendez
    Thomson

    So unless I'm missing anyone, that makes 18.

    Anyone surprised that Dana contradicted himself?

    Well imagine if he kept his word.

    Have you seen the EA UFC roster?

    Also is Dana considered "in" the UFC or a part of it? Since he is doing business with EA now.

    Wait, so you're telling me that situations and opinions might change after five years? Wow? Thanks so much for that.

    I've been buying EA sports games for years (doing business). I'm going to say that is the reason that I am not currently a UFC fighter.

    Damn politics.

    The fast food industry workers are making posts this morning i see. One day, you'll catch on to how business and competition actually works, and how money changes things.

    Dana White didn't get to where he is today because he's stupid.

    people changing their tone after making a deal is new to you?

    EA: MMA is not a sport, not interested in UFC game
    Dana: EA sucks

    EA makes EA MMA
    Dana: fucking hypocrites

    EA and UFC make deal

    EA: UFC is awesome
    Dana: EA is awesome
