I wonder if this is what ‘The Phone Call’ was about?

Dana is the man!! I love how he said, "it doesnt matter if I like it, some fans like it and thats what matters".
WOW!!! What a tyrant!! lol

Didn't see this one coming and I was just on MMAweekly. Right after I see this post I checked MMAWeekly and Sherdog and sure enough there is the headline. I wonder if he will ACTUALLY keep it as Strikeforce though. I mean they purchased Pride and WEC and look what happened with them.

ROFL best line ever:

(not word for word

"There are a lot of personalities over in Strikeforce Josh Barnett, Paul Daley, Frank Shamrock..." -Ariel

"Yeah yeah, all my buddies all my friends" - Dana ROFL

3 minutes into the video you'll be unconscious!!!!


Sooner or later the UFC will need to develop a minor league... I think this is probably going to be the first step towards that.

Wonder how soon until Diaz is in the UFC?

I would love to see Nick Diaz fight in the UFC again BUT Dana has said he would not "play the game". Guess we will all have to sit back and see what happens.

this is great news .. i am not a guy that likes monopolies, but zuffa (dana) is the best for mma .. he has gotten most of the doors open .. yeah, lots of people don't like him, but if it wasn't for him, we'd be watching mma 3 or 4 times a year instead of multiple times a month .. WAR DANA!!!!

Dude, this is friggin' huge news! Man, I'm glad I decided to check the news site real quick as I was eating, or else I never would have heard about this. Here are the three things I want to see come out of this:
  1. Title unifications. Once a year the UFC champ vs. The SF champ for the Zuffa belt.
  2. Pat commentating in the UFC. Best threesome in announcing, hands down. If Pat's OK with smacking Moron into place, he'll handle Goldie & Joe no problem.
  3. Pat Miletich in the HoF. 1st WW champ, coach of 4 eventual champs & now a fantastic commentator.
