After UFC 76, Dana White choked with rage and snarled his hatred of the unjust websites that always downplayed his organization’s fighters. Now he’s at it again, blaming internet forums as a place where snake oil and lies are sold regarding the kind of money fighters really make. In this case, he’s specifically saying that Randy Couture thought people were making more money than him based on what he read on the internet:
“This business is like a beauty salon,” he said. “These guys are all the toughest guys in the world, but they’re like (expletives) in a beauty salon. They pass along rumors and gossip, which has no basis in reality and they believe all the (rumors) they hear. The Internet is very powerful and one of the best promotional tools we have, but it’s a crazy place."

And yet Randy says he got his information from talking DIRECTLY to Chuck Liddell, Quinton Jackson, Tito Ortiz, and Matt Hughes.
I wonder which one's telling the truth? The most respected athlete in the sport or the guy who promised us the Super Bowl of MMA, an HBO deal, the signing of Fedor, Chuck vs Wanderlei, Matt Lindland a title shot (TWICE) and on and on?
**** Dana White.
