Dana White talks to us about Bellator, female wardrobe malfunctions, and the ethics of highlight reels in this video

I just ate a jar full of cherries before I realized that I could have made a cherry pie. Damn, my friends would have been impressed if I baked a cherry pie with those things. Thankfully, my friends have pretty low expectations so they'll just be impressed that I ate an entire jar full of cherries. As of right now, it's the greatest accomplishment that I can personally take claim to today. Granted, it's nothing like LayzieTheSavage getting a one-on-one interview with UFC boss Dana White today in Los Angeles.

Sure I'm still proud with my ability to eat an entire jar of cherries, but I'm even more impressed that Dana White actually answered all the questions we threw at him just a few hours ago. Unfortunately, we didn't get your Justin Bieber one in there. Sorry, folks. Maybe next time.

There's something there in that topic.

 

I've seen this brought up to Dana before, and Dana's answers are always that he doesn't feel the uploader/HL maker is making them to make money. He acknowledges that they are made well. He never gives a justifiable reason as to why they're taken down, and yet they keep getting taken down.

It's been explained about fifty thousand times why they're taken down.

1) Legally, if you don't actively defend your trademarks, you can lose them.

2) Google has bots that take down public videos that match the digital fingerprints of copyrighted stuff. No one at Zuffa has to sit there and watch videos and then send "take down" notices. It's all automated. If Zuffa footage is found by a bot in a video, it's taken down automatically. This is why the exact same video will stay up if the footage is altered -- for example, flipped to a mirror-image, or zoomed in a bit: Because it no longer matches the fingerprint.

Was this your first 1 on 1 with Dana Layzie? You seem a little nervous. Not to bad just a little though.

I only had a short amount of time so I wanted to get as many answers as possible while I had the opportunity. If I had more time, I would of conversated more than questioned. Phone Post
