In this interview Dana talks about how he isn't the face of UFC and how he thinks the fighters get a lot more attention than him.

Its a cool interview so i thought i'd share it.

I think Dana is going to have to tone it down a bit. Lately he had crossed the line with the Fedor comments. Of course those comments just make him look ignorant.

I bet Dana gets the Couture / Fedor fight to happen via that comment. At his first press conference he didnt think Fedor was in the top 10 which really ment he was pissed that he couldnt get that fight and didnt want people to believe that he had a top 5 heavyweight that didnt want in the UFC. Fedor and the heavyweight division has done nothing different since but now DANA says he is top 5. I bet we see this fight happen or negotiations with the UFC and M-1 reopen.

LOL !!!

Word Fedor :Dana's response " rank # 5 in the heavyweight division " !!

So, not by any mean the best fighter in HW, not by any mean the best P4P fighter, not by any mean a top 3 in the HW division, only #5 !!

Dana, found in 3 words a polite way to tell that Fedor is not the best in the world at all and now Fedor can not cry in an open letter because he think he is #1 !!

Good move Dana !!

cmill21 , better chance next time dude !!

What about the news about Sylvia leaving the UFC !!

You should already have started to correct your statement , specially your " reliable " list of fighters who are going to M-1 !! the list is shrinking every day man , maybe you should add your name on the list, just to make the list longer than 2 names .

You should already have started to eat back your words , specially your so good reliable list of fighter who are going to M-1 !!




Alright I didn't understand most of that...But for your guys backing of Dana and whatever he says including what he said about Fedor "sucking", not being top 10, being a joke, ect. This just shows that your blind faith is following a guy who says things when they are convienient to him. I've been saying he's a promoter and he says whatever sells him more tickets, if he signed Fedor I garentee they'd promote him as the best HW alive, just ask Joe Rogan where he'd rank Fedor . Eat my words about what? That Tim sylvia said what he said? How does that make sense? He said theres a chance he would sign there if he left, now he said that he doesn't want to leave the UFC, only one eating their words is big tim.... Hahaha...you guys....

According to Rogan, every fighters and their mothers are best P4P in the world or best athlete of the planet , it depend of what fight he talk about and you just have to change the name of the fighters and it 's done !!

Of course if you only read the play by play on sherdog you are not aware of that !!

And Tim says that he only told that his manager was in m-1 and all of sudden the guy name is on the list of m-1 rosters !! lol

Well, "Top 5" doesn't necessarily mean he is "#5".

Anyway, I would say that is pretty generous considering Fedor has never finished a top 10 fighter in his career.
