    Good try

    One second in: "From the sold out Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo Japan"

    UFC 144 Henderson vs. Edgar attendance: 21,000.

    UFC Fight Night Hunt vs. Nelson attendance: 12,000.

    Pride Final Conflict 2004 attendance: 47,000.



    All at the same arena.

    If they really said that, then their propaganda is now on the level of North Korea's when the latter says "We have nothing to envy in the world."

    Dana would murk Kim Jong-fatso in a boxing match, too.

    Sold out means every ticket they put on sale was bought. Not that the entire venue was sold out.

    And it wasn't Dana who said it. It was the random two dudes they have commentating over it. They randomly pop in and say shit like. "Ohhhhh this guy!" And random shit like that.
     
  10. lol, fuck. Get rid of White, already. C'mon.

    He single-handedly wrecks this sports' credibility. It has all other elements of a major sport - the athletes, the drama, the fan investment in winning and losing, the respect of athletes from other sports - and then this fucking knob and Rogan spouting superlatives to the point that words stopped meaning anything 5 years ago, and even a large portion of the sports' serious fans start rooting against the organization that drives it.

    Still seems a bit fabricated.

    And from wiki : Attendance 21,000 (paid: 18,000). So yeah...

    He didn't even say that quote is the funny part. So you raging just to rage at this point. Just getting pissed at Dana for anything now.

    Saitama Super Arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Chūō-ku, Saitama City, Saitama, Japan. Its spectator capacity is 36,500 at maximum settings. This main arena capacity is between 19,000 and 22,500 when events such as basketball, volleyball, tennis, ice hockey, gymnastics, boxing, mixed martial arts, and professional wrestling take place there.

    Actually it was some Japanese comedian saying it. I wonder if he was prompted though...

    The sad shit is they could most likely outdo that attendance. Pride was willing to put its best fighters in Japan, the UFC isn't.

    tombumblefuck is one of the most perpetually butthurt anti-Zuffa anti-Dana drones I've ever encountered on Sherdog. I feel like the guy must get kicked in the nuts by people all day then come home, log onto Sherdog, and direct all his pent up rage against the big stinky poopface bad man Dana.
