    He really did the right thing by putting his foot down with two champions who have challengers lined up. not just for the contenders but also for the UFC and it's viewers. A fight involving conor/gsp/diaz or Woodley/gsp/diaz would probably draw more buys than Conor vs aldo 2 and Woodley vs Wonderboy. but at the end of the day these are the fights that better progress the division and set up for better more worthwhile bouts down the road.


    Just glad to see the UFC make the right decision for fighters and the division instead of sideshow fights strictly for the sake of drawing power. Helps them to retain what little legitimacy they have left.

    Less money up front for the UFC but in the long run more legitimacy and money imo.

    It's not an easy job dealing with fighters, their egos, what they want for themselves. Dana has always done a good job in establishing an environment that makes for exciting fights. Bjorn... when he ran Bellator was an obvious example of a poor promoter...

    They are throwing in side show fights now more than ever. I'm not complaining, because I want to see shit like Hendo/Bisping 2, but what little legitimacy this sport has is going down the shitter.

    Is he still calling the shots or did new management tell him how to handle that?

    Somehow I think Conor and Twood are still going to duck the number one contenders. TWood is going go get injured and Conor wil come up with an excuse and Dana is going to let him

    MMA is not a sport, it is entertainment. I use to think the opposite, sadly I was wrong.

    How can you give props to Dana for just saying something? The guy lies all the time. Let's wait for the fights to be official and then you can give him props.

    I agree TS, bus also we have to remember Dana is a compulsive liar and he has told us so many lies over the years, its hard to know what to believe when it comes out of his mouth. If the fight is actually officially signed then I'll congratulate them

    Gsp just started the testing for fuck sakes. This is Dana White making sure he gets that money in the mean time.

    GSP will just fight the winner.

    Great move by Dana. If T-Wood gets injured, the UFC has Wonderboy sit and wait. No ducking, no injuries, this is your next fight or gtfo. Get the interim title ready.

    Wish he would've done this a whole lot sooner when it comes to Conor. It's too late now. It's like having a child get away with all kinds of stupid nonsense and then finally putting your foot down as the parent. Everyone knows you're a crappy parent by that point.
