    So Aldo said that Dana sat down with him and FACE TO FACE, said he wanted the re-match, Aldo even said that they told him it was going to happen.

    But then he said Dana tried to make the fight but CONOR refused. Now, Most here blame Dana for everything (me included) but really, he can't do much about it if Fighters are ducking each other.

    What else Dana gets shit for despite having nothing to do with it or not being able to do anything about it ?

    So they made him a promise and then broke the promise.

    Maybe they shouldn't make promises that they can't back up.

    People sometimes get on Dana's case about not firing or punishing bad refs

    It doesn't work that way

    That being said Dana is still a massive liar

    Agree.

    But what if fighters say "yes i'll take the fight", then in second talk they change plans and want something different ?

    Especially Conor, he can say he'll fight this guy tomorrow but change it last minute and UFC still does what he wants.

    Maybe it's because he's very vocal about bad refs

    But the UFC knew they had other plans for Conor. They knew that fight wasn't going to happen. They sat there and lied to Aldo.

    If something is really out of their hands, fine. But did Conor even agree to the fight? Had they even offered it to Conor when they promised Aldo it would happen? It seems to me like they flat-out lied to Aldo's face, same way they did with Khabib and countless others.

    In part this is true since he's the one who has to face the media most of the time, but it seems to me like he's personally responsible for a lot of it as well. Too many stories from fighters about him blatantly lying to their faces or using them in one way or another. Even if it's coming from Zuffa/WME/whoever else, he's the one doing the dirty work and then defending it when it comes to light.

    If the champion refuses to fight an opponent, of course, its going to fall on the guy in charge.

    If a boxer doesn't follow WBA or WBC's mandated challenger, they get stripped! Dana has all the power over his champion. He might give him leeway for economic reasons, but then others have every right to shit on him for that.

    Dana DOESNT owe us the truth in every situation

    sometimes the truth changes

    sometimes people are honestly mistaken

    people use the word lie too loosely
