NAGA_JIM -
Joe_Drogan420 - This thread is like the culmination of unprofessionalism and stupidity, on both parts.
First, Dana White is such a huge idiot to make the dumbass statements he does. I mean seriously, this guy needs to follow Scott Coker around and take notes.
Secondly, no one on this site knows how to write a fucking article. That's why you get horribly title pieces that read like toilet paper.
This thread is like an idiot orgasm.
The worst part is that you actually weren't wrong in your quote, you just got butthurt when 'DFW' didn't like it. Oh no you pissed off daddy kirik, go hide in the corner.

  Yea he should follow scott coker around and take notes on how to run a promotion that had a lot of tallent in to the ground by having no clue how to market and utilize his roster of talented fighters. I am always reading about Strikeforce fighters who are so happy to be able to fight once a year if they are lucky and have almost no sponsorship opportunnities because no one knows who they are. But if there is anything to be said for Coker its that he does it all with grace and doesn't have a potty mouth lol
Lol no shit. Phone Post

Damn, Kirik got the whip from corporate again!

Just kidding, the UG blog threads are always entertaining and a good way to guide discussion on current thread topics, otherwise it'd all be DFW and UFC threads on the board...?

Marcus Aurelius had a dream that was Rome. This is not it.

True, but the photoshop of the garv with the muppet face is pretty awesome.

DFW, before you DARE snark that Spike has "fantastic original programming", lest you be reminded that YOU got your idea for Primetime from HBO and your biggest meal tickets have been WWE Lesnar and Sonnen who used WWE promos.

Sorry.

You can't get all cocky and break Spike's balls as if they lack originality when Vince McMahon could say the same to you over even the idea of running monthly PPV events.

Unless EVERYTHING you've done is original, you can't go shitting on someone else's supposed lack of originality.

If UFC had inked a deal with Spike, you'd not be saying these things.

It's phony.

Be real.

Be original. Phone Post

He's right.

Let's look at some facts:

a) He (or Zuffa if you prefer) has successfully pushed MMA to the next level.

b) Others have tried.

c) No one else has succeeded.

That makes a pretty strong argument.

If someone else could build a successful MMA franchise of the level they did, quite simply, they would have. Like it or not, all the facts agree with his statements.

Kirik - Dana is 100% right.

He is kinda cocky, but most people who accomplish great things are.
Yes but when you aren't as great as you once were, shouldn't you exhibit a modicum of humility?

Dana is worried about getting into NYC yet 3 of the last 4 events have sold 150K buys with the last event canceled.

That isn't a run to act like it's still UFC 100.

I'm not saying he should eat shit.

I'm just saying he shouldn't act like all he touches is gold.

Brock Lesnar around UFC 100 could talk like a monster.

Brock Lesnar after UFC 121 wasn't quite in as lofty a position.

That's all.

A little humility here and there would endear him to a larger audience and I'd think the UFC would like a bigger audience than the one which they have at present. Phone Post

TheReflectionOfPerfection - Funny how everyone here criticizes and judges a man that has done more in 11 years then they will in 6 lifetimes. Phone Post
No man is above criticism.

However no man should feel they are worthy to judge.

There IS a difference.

Look, I know a guy should lay off the breaking ball if he isn't hitting it. Therefore, I criticize his choice to chase pitches in the dirt.

I cannot however judge his ability to even do what he does as while I can see what could be done; I must admit I could not do it. Phone Post

frontrowbrian -  The next level = even more watered down $55 PPV's.

Shit, there damn near $70 for HD with taxes included up here in Vancouver. And at about 25 percent of their 2009 potency The product has been stepped on to the point where us addicts are barely getting a buzz now.

They are looking at a panic soon.

Dead Again - 
Broady -  So much negativity in mma nowadays, depressing. Phone Post

  It's been like this for a long time. Since the Pride days.

A lot of the UFC is on the downfall critics are Pride fanboys who just want to see the UFC fall so they can rub it in the face of UFC fanatics that laughed at them when Pride went under. It's bad blood that goes back years.

You can remember the well known accounts that went from writing long "eloquent" FRATs on why Pride is superior, to writing long "eloquent" FRATs on why the UFC is failing and Dana is the devil.

The newer accounts doing it are accounts from Pride fanboys that got banned and don't have the tact of some of the other long time posters.

It's funny to see but they'll be doing it for the next few decades.


You don't feel that the UFC product has been watered down considerably in the past two or three years? And that there is two much watered down product flooding the marketplace? Are these not valid criticisms?

You know, not everyone comes from this binary Pride/UFC world you inhabit eh.

ssj - if that means less PPV's so be it.

  Less events/PPVs = less opportunities for fighters to compete so cuts to the roster would be necessary. Which 10 fighters would you cut?
