Can you really blame him though given not just what Chael managed to do but the shadiness that surrounded how Pettis ended up fighting Henderson in Milwaukee ? What about Edgar, he had 2 very controversial losses to Bendo, drops to FW and get immediate title shot.

no doubt it was sketchy. but thing is with Pettis/Henderson 2, A LOT of fans were asking for that fight even though Pettis/Aldo would have been an amazing fight. right now i don't feel enough hype for Pettis/Diaz for any (alleged) strings to be pulled........ i think he still needs another finish victory to be considered for another title shot.

i wouldn't be surprised if white puts a Nate Diaz vs Melendez fight offer on the table just to mess with them.
dunno how true this is.

The fan in me is not complaining about the sketchy shady back room dealings that is making these fights happen. I wanted to see most of those fights (save for Chael/Bones).

And if Dana tabled that fight, it would lead to a lot of drama on twitter and in the media potentially followed by Nate pulling a Nick and quitting. But if they want to make that fight, hype is not hard to create with the Diaz bros.

or his own brother losing to condit in a interim title match, then getting a real title shot with gsp.

right?


IMO the worst was Brock Lesnar getting a title shot after what 4 fights and a 3-1 record........ obviously for the ratings.






hard for us to complain because they're giving the fans what they want. as the same time it's unfair for a lot fighters.

well, the whole brock thing i always understood. ratings were part of it, but the heavyweight division was AWFUL at that time. they needed something to give it a spark, and i don't think you can argue that it didn't work.

i agree dude. like it said, it's hard to complain.

yeah dude HW back then was awful, Tim Sylvia was fking joke, and Crocop was the UFC's biggest bomb ever. i was one of the guys that was saying Cain should be getting the way back then. but then again, he wasn't as much of a finisher back then as he is now and the Cain/Kongo was probably still fresh on Dana's mind. but now it's all water under the bridge......

all that said.......... and as much of a d*ck he is, Dana White is probably (relatively) doing a better job managing the UFC than the commissioners of the 4 other major sports have done in their respective organization. over 10 years, 4(?) million dollar investment now the fastest growing sport in the world and a multi billion dollar world wide industry?
New TUF winner, Julia Pena, out possibly TWO years with serious knee injury. apparently, she suffered torn ACL, MCL, LCL, and meniscus while grappling.

Dana White is pissed, demanding that she trains at a new gym due to the irresponsible training from her current gym.
