ufc is not a sport. it is an entertainment. dana is trying to say it is a sport. dana doesn't know espn is all about sports. hershel is a popluar sports figure. if he had went into the ufc, espn would of covered it. espn don't care about gsp.

Dana is retarded Canseco vs. Walker would be the biggest draw for MMA in the history of the sport, if its all about brining in new fans what better way than NFL vs. MLB? I am 10x more interested in seeing Canseco/Shaq/Whoever vs. Walker than Couture vs. Coleman..

I like what Hershel Walker is doing and nothing from Zuffa/UFC or Dana will influence my opinion.I'd love to see Hershel vs. Couture, that is, after Mark Coleman destroys Randy!I see Walker finishing Couture via GNP late round 2.

Couple thoughts on the topic...-ESPN aint just about legit sports...they're in the business of pop-culture too. Not saying they're the TMZ of sports, but they're not that far off. More like the Entertainment Tonight of sports news. And although Herschel is a legit athlete and amazing story of breaking the age barrier, I think ESPN is largely looking at him from a pop-culture perspective rather than a sports-culture/legit-athletics perspective. Maybe DW fails to see that this is the reason why Hershel is getting so much play on ESPN.-The fact that ESPN pays more attention to the pop culture stars of MMA, rather than the sports most-proven talent, shows that the network still really doesn't take the sport seriously as a whole. I mean, where are the in-depth, behind-the-scenes stories on Fedor, Anderson, GSP, BJ, etc? ESPN doesn't care about those guys. The journalists and producers there don't know who they are, and they don't seem to want to investigate who they are. Given ESPN's take on MMA, why is Dana surprised that they've payed so much attention to Herschel?
