My take on this statement is that Dana is confident that they have the best fighters on contract.  Therefore, the "best fight the best".

AWdub - You idiots realize he is a promoter right? You want him to go on and say nah the best fighters are elsewhere, especially when the majority of the best mma fighters in the world are in the Ufc. I forgot it is cool and makes you a real fan these days to bash Dana and the ufc. Phone Post 3.0

It's extremely cool, UFC blows dude, I hate watching fights any more. I mean Jon Jones vs Glover Teixeira this weekend, how lame

Jake Shields isn't top 10, he's a 36 year old making a lot of money, on the downspiral, who also lacks a fan base. Sports players get cut all the time, it's no different in MMA.

Yes,the UFC has the lion share of the best fighter's in the world. I just get so tired of hearing say "the UFC where the best fight the best three times a year" Although,he didn't mention the times a year thing in this interview,that's what he usually spews.

Eddie Alvarez is a fighter they need to get as well as Askren. Phone Post 3.0

I don't like the cuts either but let's be fucking real, Fitch Okami and Shields will be relegated to gatekeeper status before they will earn a title shot with all the new killers around. The best have always fought the best in MMA, nothing to make a fuss about over that Phone Post 3.0
