With reason I pretty much agree with 90% of what Dana says and thinks. He is wrong sometimes and emotional but I love the fact he is emotional and a character and not some suit who has lawyers speak for him.

when he bemoans a result or calls it right he is normally spot on. Also the UFC can't keep granting rematches when fighters demand it and agree with his thoughts on Rampage. Rampage won, Shogun was robbed that's different.

Dana has real friends in the UFC and if you follow him a lot of fighters on bad streaks are usually people who come into the Octagon and rock it.

Lytle is looked after even when he lost a few, Matt Brown, Stephan bonnar, Tyson Griffin, Clay Guida - exciting fighters are rewarded.

How has Dana used Stephan and Forrest as pawns - he runs a business - he needs them they need him - there is nothing to hate on Dana for.

Sure he as favourites sure Forrest has extra allowances alongside Tito et al - why because they are popular and sell seats. That is just the nature of the game

So...Forrest is a pawn is what you just said

Tho why anyone cares about Forrest as a fighter is beyond me

Ha ha I see what you are saying but I don't think they have been controlled and puppateered as pawns - they have not been manipulated. They know what they are doing and have been rewarded well. If anything they are rooks!
