The victory on Saturday was a validation of his investment in the Machida's tactical, karate-based style, which drew early criticism from fans.

"We bought the WFA to acquire his contract and Rampage's," added White. "I've always thought this kid was talented."

Dana made that investment back at the end of 2006 and Rampage was already well-enough known to be part of the story when the purchase was made, but Lyoto was not.

Dana can say what he wants, but the real reason he wanted Lyoto is because he had a win over Franklin and he was curious; imo of course.

Bullshit, Dana has been saying for years how they only bought the organisation for Rampage. FFS Dana talk some realness and admit he took you by surprise.
