O, whoops, I thought it was the UG.

It's funny to read the comments on that video. Most of those people are just Dana White haters/Fedor nuthuggers who seem to know nothing about business. It basically boiled down to 1 thing and 1 thing only - co-promotion with M-1 Global. Just like Dana already knew, M-1 Global isn't **** and is just trying to use the UFC to grow its' stock. UFC is king and doesn't need to co-promote anybody.

Plus, Dana wanted to give Fedor an instant crack at the UFC HW champ to prove that he isn't in the same league anymore. It's certainly been proven in Fedor's last 2 fights.

Well I think one thing is for certain, Dana is a horrible example to young mma fans. His language is irresponsible, vulgar and hateful.

It was the UG but I figured mma.tv would be easier for people to scope out and understand

This video is very old, and I saw a thread on Sherdog today that reposted this same exact video.

Snakerattle fails.

McD spent something like $500,000 on an ad campaign talking about how they donated 100,000 to local charities... or so I "heard"

I get very tired of people bashing on the guy.. he has a foul mouth.. that's pretty much it... and he draws peoples attention to him.. and him being the "Grand Pooh-Ba" of the biggest and best MMA company in the world.. does nothing but help the sport...
same thing really.

so a growing number of you seem to think i'm wrong about Dana's actions and ultimately his true motives in this situation.

i would site my sources but i dont really have any...that alone doesn't prove i'm wrong though....i mean really,since when does anyone need any proof around here.
