Dana White: If Nog lost I would have given him the retirement talk

source: heavy.com
 

"With the whole retirement thing for Big Nog, what happens is, when you look at a guy throughout his career, and Chuck Liddell went through the same thing, you could hit Chuck Liddell with a baseball bat when he was younger in his career and the guy never got rocked or hurt. And Nogueira was that same way. If you looked back throughout his career how many wars this guy has been in, the Crocop fight, all the wars this guy has been in, how much punishment he used to take, now he gets hit and he gets hurt a lot easier. That's what you look at in something like that.

"Yes, if he lost, he and I would have been having a discussion."

Of course they'll say anything to keep him around....but having your first baby around the corner has to fuck with you no matter what. With that said - it's obvious that he's not on that level...

The press are seeing to it that this loss doesn't drop Forrest stock any. They're re making excuses for him, this shit is hilarious.

 Dana should probably stop having interviews about retiring fighters, and have some dignity and do it privately. I realize that won't be good for the big-boss image that he is cultivating, but it would be a bit classier.

Well, Dana is just saying what about 95% of this forum was saying about Nog.

Lorenzo should throw his ass into the background and step up to the front because he has it together. I could listen to Lorenzo speak for 3hrs versus Dana for 5 minutes.
