Dana White often has a way with words that politicians envy. Imagine if a political debate could be trimmed down to a series of four letter words that clearly identified how they really felt about the issues that concern our economy, taxation, and military intervention. While it might cost them votes in the grand scheme of things, I, for one, would applaud their honesty and integrity for speaking their minds -- instead of 'pussyfooting' around the topics with politically correct nonsense that does little to satisfy the debate at hand. Iíve always waned to use the word 'pussyfooting' in an article.
Earlier this week, Tim Sylvia took to YouTube, pleading with fans to help him get re-instated into the UFC because he felt that he could beat 80% of the guys in the division. Since his 8-second KO loss to Ray Mercer, the former UFC heavyweight champion has gone on to build a 6-1 record between heavyweight and super-heavyweight fights. He has returned to 265lbs and really wants to end his MMA career where he built a name for himself. According to MMA Junkie, Dana issued this brief response earlier today:

I regret to inform the MMA community that you have let down Tim Sylvia, but heís thankful of your efforts nonetheless.

If Tim keeps pleading to get back in, Dana White WILL relent. Dana, if nothing is all about drama.

He allowed in Kimbo Slice for pity's sake!

Tim should keep asking, and start calling out names. He is a former champion, he should be given another chance. What, DW let Mark Coleman back in

Dana let Kimbo in only because he saw dollar signs. The deal was he needed to win TUF to be in the UFC, he didn't and was still invited because it's all about $$$$$$$$$. Letting Tim back in will attract nobody.
