You must read some stuffs about it. It's between them, they hate each other so much.....

There's been so many things going on between them, that Dana tweeting something like this is something normal for us now. It's like we're immune to it.

But yea, you gotta read up some articles to know where I'm coming from with this. lol

agree.

dana is a routinely obnoxious asshole who needs to let go of things. at the same time, he's without question the most candid, interesting, loose-cannon in the fight industry. love him or hate him, dude is outright fascinating.

interesting side-note is that, reading between the lines, dana being dana might be the biggest reason why the UFC didn't jump to ESPN, merely fox. go to the talk sites to read more about all that... MMAUG, sherdog... etc.


at the same time, WTF is viacom (viacan't?) thinking...? who the f--k really wanted to watch old man tito and old man rampage leaning on each other for whatever rounds...? bunches of old men bringing in kegs and dancing girls they'd never dare touch...?


of course, this also means that tito is being a total and complete idiot about the situation. as in, NOBODY gives a F--K if he's badly injured or not. he's walking in to the arena on his name, not his current skills. WWF and all that horseshit clearly has much to teach those knuckleheads......

yes, much.

So yeah Bellator PPV officially cancelled and moved to Spike TV next Saturday night at 9. Honestly it's a nice card for free TV including Alvarez/Chandler II...but I would never have paid even $20 for it

Tito Ortiz introduced Dana White to Chuck Liddell and MMA. Dana was a fukcing boxersize instructor at the time. Then Dana White convinced his friends, the Fertitas, to invest in a dying MMA organization (UFC). I respect Dana for helping to bring MMA to the mainstream, but in reality, it was just a right place at the right time scenario.

Dana White hates Tito because Tito never backed down and always tried to get what he deserved. Now the UFC just rapes fighters. Some of these guys getting paid 10k for fighting in the UFC.

Floyd Mayweather makes as much in one fight as a guy like GSP or Anderson Silva have made in their entire careers (20+ fights).

to be fair, the UFC does pay more than the other orgs AFAIK. itís obviously not fair, but it is in line with the industry. but to me itís just nasty to think about the brain damage the likes of sanchez are taking for such little compensation. by comparison, at least overeem gets to sort of live the high life (monetarily) before he turns in to a drooling idiot.

also, the UFC were losing money up to... 7-8 years ago or something. at least, thatís what dana claimed IIRC. the books are closed to the public, tho...


anyway, did tito really get dana in to MMA? thatís not just tito talking, but lidell and other parties as well?

Mayweather has been a genius when it comes to the business side of boxing but he couldn't negotiate the deals he has in the UFC. But I wonder, is boxing still that much bigger than MMA? To me personally an MMA match is normally more entertaining than a boxing match.

If anyone was watching WSOF it was a solid card.

I would really like to see Marlon Moraes in the UFC.
