Jake Rossen did a post over at his blog on Sherdog on Dana White's best decisions. It's hard to argue that any of his choices were bad decisions, but they don't get at the heart of why he's been so successful.

Dana routinely makes very good month to month business decisions, but the most crucial decisions are the ones that aren't so readily apparent. Signing Lesnar was great for business, but it doesn't explain why Brock's debut for the UFC did 650,000 buys while his actual MMA debut bombed on pay per view. The following decisions get to the heart of the question of why the UFC is so successful.

Absolutely excellent Article, and spot on it all points.

Dana white takes alot of heat for the way he does things, but if you look at the results, you really can't argue with them.

People talk about how Dana wouldn't be anyhting without the Fertita's money, but conversely, the Fertita's couldn't have done this and had as much success as they've had without Dana.
