As you might expect, he's pretty pissed off. more mad than i've ever seen him on an interview.

Have to give Dana respect, he doesn't pull any punches. He speaks his mind and doesn't care what anyone thinks.

I agree with him. One of his best interviews in awhile

Dana is the man. Now I really hope UFC 89 does well next weekend, just to make a point...

Say what you want about Dana, he speaks the truth. If I were in his position I'd be pissed too.

Dana is completely right. I hope Elite XC gets investigated and shut down! Im sick of hearin about elite XC's retard promoters doin stupid stuff. Their bad for the sport, they dont know anything about the sport.

people always say, why hate on elitexc, you must not be a real mma fan. the more fights gthe better.
the first event, was a travesty.. total joke.
then, they fixed alot of problems, and the second cbs event, wasnt bad imo.
but the crap thats comming out now is just insane.
I dont want the sport i love to be associated with ANY kind of fixed fight. People complain all the time about refs, or judges, but the president of a company telling a fighter how he should fight, and how much more or less money he would get depneding on the fight is ridiculous.
I'd rather miss out on seeing some great XC fighters fight: diaz, shields, alavarez. then have a company make money off of set up fights.

Dana has obviously made a very concerted effort to improve his image in the public over the past year. Really he's done it since the Men's fitness cover. It's definitely working and this interview has only moved him up one more notch in my eyes

When did Dana White become Vince McMahon?

Poor Dana, he really needs to work on getting over his shyness.

I completely agree with Dana on this. He's spent a TON of money on PR and trying to improve the image of the UFC and MMA. He wants to be able to hold an event in any state, and right now he can't. And although they've been making serious progress, EXC just set the whole damn thing back. It's pathetic. If I were Alvarez, Lawler, or anyone else under contract right now with Elite, I would get a good lawyer and challenge it due to the circumstances that have presented themselves in the past week or so. They need to get out from under that poorly managed, crooked organization. The Shaws don't need to be involved in the world of mma in ANY way.

I agree with him 100% on this. When I got asked last night by some friends what I thought about the hole thing I basically said the same thing Dana is saying. They tried to change the outcome of the fight plan and simple. That's fixing fights!!! Whats funny is they thought for sure Kimbo would do ok standing and it ended up biting them in the butt. But that still doesn't change the fact of what they did and something should be done about it.

Dana is like Mcmahon because he and vince are both geniuses when it comes to business. Shaw is like Paul Heyman or Eric Bischoff, not good business men, and running a company that is destined for failure

While I hate the way he pays, he speaks the truth.



The ways he pays will change as the UFC grows, its not like the money is all going to one person, they spend SO MUCH money on promotion and growing and that should be more important than every fighter getting their million dollars right now. This is nothing like the CRIMINAL AIG CEO's or anything, the UFC puts a BUTTLOAD of money back into building itself. Once it gets HUGE, the fighters will make way more, all the other organizations that pay out their wazoo are all in tremendous debt so maybe Dana is actually smart for it.

Back on topic, I love Dana White!
