As of yesterday, all of Dana White's video blogs on the UFC channel were removed:

Carmichael Dave talks to Dana White:

"I made the decision not to do the blogs anymore." "I am the one that took them down" said White. "They were fun while they lasted, and thanks to everyone for the support."

Interesting. I wouldn't think the material I saw in the various vlogs was interesting enough to make a show out of. It was pretty casual stuff. However, if you stop them altogether, and the only way to see the backstage stuff is on a Spike 1-hour special, well then you've got a reason. Maybe that's better, they can cut out some of the more boring stuff.

WTF? I loved the vlogs and seeing dana backstage and shaking hands with all the fighters, or after the fights and Dana giving props to the guys who deserved it and everything.

Of course he stops them after the first one i have ever watched had him and Tito kissing He probably thought that was going to scare away all of his viewers anyways.

Maybe i'm just cynical but I fully expect them to launch on UFC.com down the road as a subscription service or as a perk for Fight club Members.

They probably just got too popular to give away for free.

Good point. It makes good business sense.

Tito kissing Dana was in the last vlog. Jena is jealous

I thing that if really there will be HBO show it's not a reason to delete all vlogs from the youtube. On the contrary they can serve as some form of indirect advertisement for the new show.

There is something very personal with that decision - some form of frustration or something. It's like burning the pictures of your last lover or some bullsh!t like that.

Definitely a strange decision.



I liked the vlogs too.

I think this is just another step of Dana White becoming more of a professional just like everyone was wanting. Putting personal feelings aside for buisness like in the Tito deal and making up with Pat Militech. I think this is just another thing that people around him told him he needs to seperate himself from.

With that said I'm completely bummed because they were very cool and I never wanted a mature Dana

Tito did say in a video she lets him screw around, I had no idea she let him go that far.

Still a rumor but it supposedly has something to do with a HBO deal of some kind.
