UFC president Dana White went on The Underground to address a thread calling for his retirement. Things went about as you'd expect.

dana is definitely a dick, but why the hell should he retire? the guy is easily the best thing to happen to our sport. the ufc was dead before him and the brothers came around.

Article is dumb.

Dana: "You have no idea what JH makes."

Writer: "I assume he meant JJ, for Jon Jones."

Or he meant Johnny Hendrciks, you know, the guy who actually fought that night.

The edit at the end just makes it worse because he refuses to admit he was wrong.

Anyway, to the point, Dana is a belligerent dick.

lol everyone takes this stuff too serious. Here is a formula that works 99% of the time. Business+Being an Asshole= MUCHO DENIRO! Dana is the way he is and without that balls to the wall, don't give a fuck, I do what I want attitude, he would be poor and the UFC would of folded. Hate him or love him, he makes money and I don't see retirement anywhere in his future.

I wouldn't necessarily say he should retire, and you are correct in saying that he joined the UFC when there wasn't much. However, the company really needs to avoid bad PR and could use someone professional to move it on to the next stage. Having him troll forums, cuss out people in interviews, and alienate some of the UFC's best fighters is not going to be helpful in the long term.

Dana is a dick, but he cracks me up. Haters have been saying the way he conducts himself is unprofessional and stuff for years, but he continues to be an awesome leader of the UFC brand. He has grown the sport and made the UFC the #1 brand in MMA by a mile. He has also kept out all the stuff that makes boxing a joke.

One day all the people whining about how much fighters make will be kicking themselves when the sport finally becomes boxing and is ruined. Then they will be missing the UFC. It will be all I remember back in the day everyone fought top contenders. I miss old school MMA, and blah blah blah. I wish some of the fighters made more at the lower level of the UFC, but Ill take an org. controlling the sport and running it right over the kind of shit boxing has going on.

The Fertitas had the connections to get mma sanctioned, not Dana.

TUF 1 made the UFC, and Dana thought it was a dumb idea. The people at Spike TV deserve more credit than they get. Forrest and Bonnar going to war was a huge part of it also.

I'm not saying Dana hasn't done a lot, and he's obviously passionate, but he's also held the sport back in ways. And his response to the questions of fighter pay were a joke.

Wait what? LOL

Spike deserves no credit. They turned the idea down before Zuffa said theyd pay $10 million for it to back it themselves.

Danas speech on TUF 1 was ground breaking itself and played a huge role in MMA today. Because the contestants on the show didnt want to fight each other til Dana lit that fire under their ass.
