    Good question.

    Has something on Dana maybe?

    Because the guys he loses to are all top guys, and he takes tough fights with little reward that not many other guys want like Gamrot.

    I think Dana has a soft spot for the guys who came in the 2000's. Jeremy Stephens, Frankie Edgar, Joe Lauzon, Jim Miller etc.

    They can't all be big winners.

    He has a willingness to fight anyone and do it in violent fashion.

    I'd imagine this is appealing to a company that sells violence.

    Company man. Takes a lot of fights. Puts it into his own hands to get boring fights cancelled. Dana bless

    Entertaining fighter that will fight anyone, and his losses during the skid are Aldo, Zabit, Yair, Kattar and Gamrot not like he is losing to scrubs.

    Finally, a good question today. I'd assume gatekeeper with a name... Dana did try to get him out of jail once so maybe just a personal affinity. Maybe he has to get to a Burkman level skid of 1-8-1 before being cut. Would like to know a real answer tho, same with Jessica Eye.

    He's a good type of guy to have around to anchor your ppv prelims or fight night main card, or to open a ppv card with a banger. It's good to have guys like that around to fill out cards with someone notable to bring the heat that you don't have to pay main event wages to. But I imagine soon he'll be on his way out considering his losing streak is starting to get lengthy.

    He told Joe lauzon he had to retire though. I remember joe talking about it how Dana said he'd give him 1 more and that's it.

    Cause he is getting out-boxed, submitted, or smashing skulls.



    (btw great ref action in 1:50, rare)

    Dana kept burkman bc he fucked up Fitch. I have no proof other than he got resigned right after and went on a horrible skid and kept for so long. Also Dana hates Jon.
