    Completely disagree. I think it's great the UFC could take it's self a little less serious for a moment and have some fun with a couple of fan favourites that we would all enjoy. I mean who cares it was just some fun - we all need to be a little less uptight

    Are we really pretending a failed boxercise coach talked 2 billionares into getting into the ufc? Im sure bill gates and zuckerberg have some loser pals but id doubt they take buissness advice from them ! They clearly already had a good look at the ufc given one of them was on the athletic comission

    As for great promoter hes took steaming dumps on his best selling fighters ( ie the product hes promoting aka his one job ) over minor contract disputes

    He's overall managed the UFC well.
    However he's not likeable due to some pretty horrendous decisions, way he treats some fighters, and essentially being a greedy scumbag who's probably not a very good person.

    He's basically the quintessential "new wealth" guy, who acquired lots of money and now treats everyone like shit.

    I wouldn't use the term "awesome" to describe Dana White.
    Someone like Wonderboy Thompson or GSP are "awesome".
    I'd call Dana White an effective manager at best.

    Not singlehandly I'd agree, more pushing them in that direction and examples like Pride of what the sport could grow into.

    I'm a fan. Except for politics the cesspool of horrible humans in the promotions business is second to none. And Dana is right at the top. Vince McMahon has him beat strictly on promotion but he doesn't have to deal with all the moving parts Dana does. Who are also a bunch of cold blooded thieving snakes. Dana is the man. King of the goofs & for that I give him props.

    They are the same people that complain about how he runs the UFC, fighter pay, blah blah blah and go into their own work and don’t complain about what their own boss pays them

    Id very much doubt they didnt know about pride and had a good look at ufcs books anyway as one of the ferittas was a comissioner
    A very slowly growing sport who everyone in vegas probably knew the owners couldnt afford it any more ...suddenly comissioner feritta comes over all moral and stops a few events and the owners need to sell.
    They no doubt saw potential even if just a freakshow to draw crowds for their shitty hotels or somewhere creative accountants could make casino buissness losses disapear into.

    How is he self-made when he was bankrolled by billionaire childhood friends whose family made their fortune via the Italian mob?
