Like it or not, it's time to give it up to Dana White.

His detractors will say that he enjoys the failure of his competitors too much and while it may certainly be true, you have to give the guy credit for what he has managed to accomplish with the UFC.

The current buzz around the MMA world is Josh Barnett's removal from the Main Event at Affliction: Trilogy on August 1 and who his possible replacement might be. Regardless of who fills in to fight Fedor, there is a good chance this will be Affliction's last show.

I've already read that insinuation twice in other posts.

As have I. Honestly though who would blame Dana for being happy with the failure of rival organizations. If I were him I would be ecstatic as well. The failure of other organizations gives him an opportunity to bring all of the world class competition into the UFC. Granted it's as if he would have a monopoly over the sport, but in a sense it would be as though a unified league such as the other major sports. I would rather have all great fighters in one organization so I could see the best fight the best, instead of wanting and wishing for fights that will never occur. Dana has done wonders for the sport.
