During the UFC conference call today with company president Dana White and fighters Chuck Liddell, Wanderlei Silva and Brock Lesnar, White was questioned about Fedor Emelianenko. The man who many consider the number one Heavyweight and number one pound for pound fighter in the world, Dana White responded by saying "Fedor sucks."

Every time Dana White opens his mouth regarding Fedor and trying to trash his legacy, it sounds like a small child crying because he dropped his binky in the trash can. Give me a break, Dana! He should have created a general boring statement saying that he respects Fedor, etc. and it would have been done. Fedor isn't walking around saying Dana White is the worst President of a company ever.

Dana White is a classless asshole. That was his main problem with Fedor not wanting to sign. Some people may think oh yeah he says whats on his mind and tells it like it is, but seriously he's an ass. He lacks some serious class, as the president of a supposedly world class company you should have some restraint. Don't talk in the media like your sitting at a pub. And classy guys like Fedor dont roll with garbage like that. No matter what the offer would have, could have been to come to the UFC Fedor just didn't want to work for that asshole and can you really blame him?

Dana is entitled to his opinion. And though I agree that Fedor needs to be tested by top heavy weights other than Big Nog and CC, I don't think it's correct to trash him.

Personaly , i have fedor 5th in the HW ranking, so i agree about having to fight real competition before being on top of the 2007 ranking.

i will not say that fedor sucks or anything like that, but i understand that dana want to speak his mind sometimes, personaly, i think that fedor have choked and now, he can put anything in his contract to try to hide the truth but if you really want to fight the best and it is not about the money, stop crying and go where the bests fighters are !!

I know, the thing is that sometimes its just funny and gets out of the concept falling into nonsense. A better answer for that question : "We don't need him here" or something like that.

Right now he's the top promoter, he doesn't have all the best fighters(as he said he would) no matter what you UFC huggers want to beleive, he really missed out on alot of top guys, and signed Lesnar. Insulting someones heritage and country as Dana did won't get you the guy you want, especially when it's a country that grew up anti-american. Every educated mma fan knows or should know that what fedor has done in mma is unmatched, he beat everyone at their own game, literally, he's done it all, and no not beating randy isn't going to tarnish his legacy. He doesn't need to fight in the UFC, if M-1 does go under(don't think it will) he won't sign with the UFC, especially after Dana said he "sucks" because why would he? I don't care what Dana says anymore, he just spouts off like a little kid, but doesn't he realize that hey contracts expire? and some companies fail, and then he would be able to get Fedor? Nope, he wants to cry and whine like a 2 year old. I think dana, promoter or not, should respect mma since alot of the fans that watch and beleive what he says are watching mma as a fad, and if he keeps alienating all these fighters they'll leave and so will his die hard fans.
