I know I'm digging up old bones here, but Dan was on Submission Radio and it had me thinking of his release. This is how I see it. Please chime in if you have a different perspective or have actually gone to a live event with Hardy's team present. Okay: 1) He can be very bossy to his coworkers 2) Main reason he was fired: Hardy was attending events with a growing entourage of his own media people. Some of them were called The Raptors (wtf); all of which formed his online "think tank" community called the Reptile Collective. 3) Dan's lizard people threatened the power balance within UFC's backstage production and ultimately fed into Hardy's swelling ego. The time was right to fire him. Your thoughts.
