Default Dana White goes off about John Hackleman

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2009/5/8/...day-dana-white
http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles...s-future-17379

Quote:
“Obviously, John Hackleman didn’t pay his house off yet. John Hackleman needs some money, because anybody who claims they care about Chuck Liddell even a little bit would not be making these f--king statements,” White told Sherdog.com Thursday.

The UFC president said Hackleman is frustrated because “he’s never been a decision-maker in Chuck’s career. I can tell you this: He didn’t make Chuck Liddell. Chuck Liddell made John Hackleman.

“How many great, talented guys do you see coming out of John Hackleman’s place?” White asked. “He’s no Greg Jackson. He’s no Mark DellaGrotte. He’s no American Top Team. He’s not one of the great camps. Chuck Liddell made him.”
Some pretty harsh words...

I think Chuck would disagree

This is when Dana gets annoying and his outburts come a little tedious.

Also if you are really Chuck's buddy, you would'nt keep doing it in the open and plainly embarrasing Chuck and leaving him caught in the middle.

I suspect they both care for Chuck but have different Idea's on what's best for Chuck!

I'd agree on this for the most part. Though only issue with this verbal attack on Hackleman is u run this risk of pissing off Chuck as well. Regardless of Hackleman's motives him and Chuck have been friends a long time and if someone was constantly bashing him I'd be a little irked.

I couldn't agree more with White, although he again uses very little tack. It is ok for me to say this on an internet forum, but for White to come out against one of his best friend's trainer?

Hackleman did some great things for Chuck, but Chuck grew old fast, when you fight as much as he did, especially when the sport blew up there was a lot of film on him. The light heavies in the division that fought Chuck in the last two or three years figured him out, he didn't do enough to revolutionize his fighting technique.

Unfortunately the fight with Wand was just fleeting moment although still one of the best fights in UFC history.
