 That magazine cover is so cringe worthy.

I'd compare the UFC to the NBA or NFL...it needs new blood to take it to the next level, a Pete Rozelle or David Stern. Dana just doesn't have the temperament to make it happen.

MMA has taken a dive.

The UFC will have jumped the shark in 2013.

jwolf - Dana,

Keep doing what you are doing. I run a small business and I get the "bad shit everyday" as it happens to me on a regular basis.

If you ever need a mechatronics engineer that could build some real cool shit for the UFC, have Cindy O hit me up. I recently have designed laser tire scanning devices, remote control frisbee golf basket. I also fly RC as a hobby. I could build the UFC some REALLY COOL SHIT.

I have even deigned a camera mount that eliminates the cameraman. I am passionate about what I do and would love to contribute to taking it to the next level.

Thanks
-JWolf

This other dude invented PM's. You should try them out. Phone Post

I did not claim to invent anything. And, do you really think Dana Fucking White reads all of the PM's he gets on here.

I can see why the man gets so frustrated when he has to deal with a bunch of fucktarded fans.

He must have a lot of patience. My business is lucky to do $20M a year. And, I stress about it every fucking minute of my life. Add in a wife and 3 kids, see how your stress levels are.

He runs a company that is worth a Billion dollars. Think about it. If you had to run a company worth a $B, how would you act towards it. Would you defend like it was your first born child?

DFW has made bad decisions in the past. So have I. It is part of being human.

I give him credit for getting MMA to where it is today. And, it just so happens that I have a skill set that could potentially help them get further. I am a passionate person about what ever I do.

Sorry if you have a fucking problem with me making a post. But, this is a forum. <end rant/>

The most important thing DFW does is tell everybody how busy he is, telling everybody where he is flying to next, and how he hasn't slept in 24+ hours, etc. He still has enough time to fuck around on Twitter for 20+ hours a day though...

I would think while he is flying around in planes and being driven around to places he can find the time to be on twitter.

dfw jr -  hey kevsh, i have been hearing that kind of goofy shit from guys like you for 10 years and every year as the sport gets bigger and bigger we continue to shove it up your ass year after year. rrg, the best thing about me being me and doing shit the way that i want to is i get to tell clowns like u to GO FUCK YOURSELF and if you don't like the way i talk or act then GO AWAY!! unfortunatley other guys who run their sports dont have that luxury.

Insults aside that goofy shit just happens to be true. I'm not hating on the UFC's success, I love what you've done but I'd offer that instead of focusing on new markets so much keep delivering the quality shows in the markets you do have.

First show in Montreal with GSP and scalpers made a field day. Second card with Silva and you could've got tickets for face value weeks before. Same with Toronto. This upcoming show there's very little buzz even with JBJ headlining.

Bottom line, bigger isn't always better (at least for the fan), it's just more profitable.

It is the fighters and the fans who are responsible for MMA being popular - not Dana White or the UFC.

 I always say about the UG Blog that if you don't like something, it was Chris, and if you like something about it, it was me.

The thing is, I made that title, not Chris, or anyone else. As has been pointed out, it was done to get views, without a clear thinking through of context, or I guess any thinking through of context.

I apologize, 100%.

President Lincoln said “When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.” I try with remarkably mixed results to live up to that. I screwed up here, and I feel bad.

If this was the only time it has happened, I would feel a little less bad. But for years people have been criticising the UG Blog for poor choice in titles, and I have tried to make a major effort to change that. And obviously here I failed.

This sucks.

I changed the title on the main page and in the thread to:
"White: MMA won't get to next level without the UFC"
For anyone who is late to the thread, the original title I made was:
"White: MMA won't get to next level without me"

I could delete the thread and the blog entry, but that would be running away from a problem that I made, and that is not the right thing to do since like the 3rd grade or something. So I have changed the title, and here apologize, and freakin promise you guys that the misleading titles are going to stop.

An irony is that it is true - without DFW and as he said Lorenzo Fertitta, this sport is not going to reach the next level. I know this, as I was here working at MMA as hard as I could before they took it over. At one point, it appeared to me that the UFC was going to die (long story) and that it would have to get built from the grassroots up, a process that would take at a minimum a generations, but likely longer if ever.

But that only Dana and Lorenzo are capable of taking the sport to the next level is something I should have been saying, not putting the words into his mouth, especially as I did it because I thought the title would get people to read the interview.

I am not changing the image, as I think it is a cool one - PE, along with Bob Dylan and the Sex Pistols - is one of my three favorite bands. They shook things up when they needed to be shook up. Just like Dana did with the UFC, and the UFC did with martial arts.

Now I am going to go shake up myself.

The fad is winding down and Zuffa needs to keep expanding to survive.
