Default The Dana White double standard

Semtex = Out of the UFC for life, one late punch = no damage.

Jake Shields = Threw the first punch in an after fight brawl,
not only does Dana want him, but is a special guest at the WEC.

Nate Diaz = involved in 2 televised after fight brawls = no trouble.

Nick Diaz = involved in a brawl at the hospital with Joe Riggs,
2 on screen brawls and Dana still publicly says he wants Nick back in the UFC.

Heath Herring - Prior to his UFC debut, HH KOed a fighter in the face off,
Dana White not only still signed him, but used the footage to promote him.

BJ Penn = Assaulted a COP in Hawaii = no trouble from the UFC.

Babalu = arrested for assault before his last fight

Junie Browning = Commits FELONY assault in the TUF house,
not only no trouble, but gets more television time.

The list goes on and on, not everything was in the ring,
but still. If you have a rule it needs to be across the board.

When you stop crying about this I will send you some tissue.

Dude the bottom line is that Daley was very disrespectful punk that night. He should never have sucker punched a fighter like that.

You're whining about the punch,
I can whine about the punishment.

Its funny to me when people are fine to share their own opinion,
but anybody else is whining.

Stop whining about the punch, KOS is a sissy and it was no big deal.

You are right about Dana having double standards.

With that being said, I don't blame anybody but Paul Daley for what happened to Paul Daley.

Nate Diaz = involved in 2 televised after fight brawls = no trouble. HYPE

Nick Diaz = involved in a brawl at the hospital with Joe Riggs, not widely televised
2 on screen brawls and Dana still publicly says he wants Nick back in the UFC. HYPE

Heath Herring - Prior to his UFC debut, HH KOed a fighter in the face off,
Dana White not only still signed him, but used the footage to promote him. SEXUAL ASSAULT, SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE WORKPLACE

BJ Penn = Assaulted a COP in Hawaii = no trouble from the UFC. Off camera

Babalu = arrested for assault before his last fight Off camera hasn't been back since he wouldn't let go of the choke

Junie Browning = Commits FELONY assault in the TUF house,
not only no trouble, but gets more television time. I haven't seen him fight since lol

The list goes on and on, not everything was in the ring,
but still. If you have a rule it needs to be across the board.
I clarified some of those. I think the Elite stuff was just hype like way back in the WWE days before it became legit again.... hahah

other stuff was out of the octagon.

not only does Dana want him, but is a special guest at the WEC.

Nate Diaz = involved in 2 televised after fight brawls = no trouble. Not during a UFC event

Nick Diaz = involved in a brawl at the hospital with Joe Riggs, Not during a UFC event and away from cameras
2 on screen brawls and Dana still publicly says he wants Nick back in the UFC.
- That's news to me. You hvae a link to this??

Heath Herring - Prior to his UFC debut, HH KOed a fighter in the face off,Not during a UFC event. And the guy HH was going to fight kissed him!.. That's a bit more than talking trash with some guy you may end up rolling around the floor with..
Dana White not only still signed him, but used the footage to promote him. - Yep, used the whole thing.."Look what happens OUTSIDE the UFC when a guy kisses this guy!!

BJ Penn = Assaulted a COP in Hawaii = no trouble from the UFC.Not during a UFC event.

Babalu = arrested for assault before his last fight Not during a UFC event.

Junie Browning = Commits FELONY assault in the TUF house,
not only no trouble, but gets more television time. Not during a UFC event. And TUF is pretty much garabage anyways.. at least I haven't seen it during this season.

The list goes on and on, not everything was in the ring,
but still. If you have a rule it needs to be across the board.
The UFC can't control what their fighters do outside of the ring.. to a large extent..

Diaz punks are pot heads.. UFC does nothing...
Tito "supposedly" beats his wife.. Nada..
Chuck gets accused of assult .. Nada...
Quinten has his "Road Rage incident".. Dana bails him out of jail....

and while all of that.. and much more.. happens.. NONE of it happened in the cage at a UFC event..

See a trend?

Considering Paul is out of a job with the #1 MMA company in the world.. I kinda think it's a big deal.

I agree with atomdanger. I would like to hear Dana explain his side of the story, of course he wont because he feels like he doesn't need to explain anything to the media.

One point on Babalu, he did get cut for holding the choke for to long.

He did explain his actions at the post event media conference..

"There is no room for that here" and something to the effect of.. "I am very lenient and the UFC is lenient.. but not in this case..."

And I throughly agree with him.

I am more ticked that he cut Kevin after one fight.. than dumping Paul like the garabage he is.. Kevin at least was trying to fight.. Not saying Paul wasn't.. just that his besst punch was thrown WAY after the horn.. and well after Dan split them up..
