he's blaming hockey? wow dana, you wonder why people hate your guts.

He should have looked at the canadian's hockey schedule and planned accordingly, No rational buisnessman will sacrifice a sure thing like hockey for a risky venture (in their eyes) like UFC. Also, the NHL's season is predetermined, so dana get on the ball.

goddamn excuses

What's with this guy and premature announcements?? He comes across as the most amateur businessman to make an impact in the last 25 years.

"You guys have got too much frigging hockey up there," he told a Canadian reporter at the post-fight news conference. "As soon as you cancel some hockey games, we'll be up there."

Is this guy a moron?? 41 or 42 Home games, the same AS EVERY TEAM IN THE NBA AND NHL!!!!! Lol this guy is sad.

This is a joke. Dana is a joke. To use hockey as an excuse for there being no event in montreal is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. He has to strat too get his crap in order. Dana has got to be the biggest joke in MMA as of late with all of the things he has said and done.

Ok so theres 2 hockey games a week at MOST, UFC is always on saturdays, well the canadians will be in toronto in the first 3 months of the season 4 times on saturday night lol. So he's got 4+ weeks he can do it...not really getting this whole thing dana wants world domination? If he keeps doing this shit he'll start to get in trouble. Tell England to cancel some soccer games, oh wait you found a way around that...

I think that post was a joke. First of all it was the Fertittas bankroll that made UFC what it is today, Dana White's vision was SpikeTv, WOW, it's not even an elite cable channel. As for this topic, what you refused to comment on, because you have nothing to say, making statements like "Cancel some hockey games" is pure ignorance, the NHL schedule has been the same for what 25 years?? This year they threw in a loophole where the Canadiens play 60 home games??? There's no Saturdays where they aren't in Toronto as previously mentioned??? Lately Dana White is running his mouth too much and embarassing himself, scheduling Shogun vs Machida only further proves his and Silva's arrogance.

I can't believe how eager he is to make announcements before they are in writing. Canada, Wanderlei coming to UFC 61, HBO deal. Keep it in your pants man, brag about it after you have it in writing. You look ridiculous having to go back on all of these things.

Lol exactly...not to mention the UFC vs PRIDE supershow that will never happen because he fears PRIDE's talent and is taking all of their fighters.

Do u watch the UFC? Then im pretty sure hes doing a good job. Is ESPN covering UFC? Then im pretty sure hes doing his job. Hockey is dead its over it got out beat by a cooking network show. I would say cancel hockey too. UFC would generate more more then a hockey game no matter who was in the game I'm srry its true tho. I just think its easy to bash the guy for this and that but hes doing what he can to expand the UFC to make it sumthing more and to grow the fan base. Sure he writes checks his butt cant cash sumtimes but if u cant respect the man for trying to build MMA into a world wide extravaganza and sport that everyone wants to see then you would have to reevaluate yourself.

I never will question whether he's doing a good job, I was just pointing out a couple of things that bother me. The fact is he has taken MMA to another level, and hopefully it will go even higher. I laugh seeing the Sherdoggers posts that say "Dana is killing MMA" "Is Dana good for MMA?". Please.

I don't think other people were comparing the UFC to NHL. Right now there is no comparision. It's just the ignorance or set of balls that he has to think that "as soon as you guys cancel some hockey games, we'll be up there". Huh??? Way to endear yourself to fans you are trying to market towards, treat their national pasttime like its a Little League game.
