So, let me start off by saying that I've never thought very highly of Gary Shaw...and his son Jared just rubs me the wrong way. This past weekend has only given me new reasons not to like the 2 of them.
So, obviously Dana White and Gary Shaw don't see eye to eye and often have a war of words in the media. Well, one thing in particular always stood out in my mind...when Gary was asked about Dana's claims that he was never a fan of MMA, Shaw made a remark along the lines that he was watching MMA back when Dana was selling used cars for a living. Since he only recently decided to involve himself with MMA, now that it has gained popularity over the last couple of years, I became a bit curious. So after doing some googling, it didn't take me too long to dig up a quote from Shaw from just a couple of years ago.Boxing promoter Gary Shaw attributes Ultimate Fighting's rise to a generation inured to violence and mayhem -- the sort commonly depicted in movies and videogames. "The mixture of wrestling with boxing and the fact that it's not staged goes to the bloodthirsty segment of the population," he says. Source: Wall Street Journal Full Article Published by UFC
So, what does this mean? To me, it means that he's a snake in the grass...but then again, I already knew that. Take it for what it's worth, but I thought I would share this, as I found it interesting.
