Din Thomas: Dana don't need the money, fighters do

source: theGarv.com
 

To the fans, just keep supporting the game and this is something I’m very adamant about; don’t just support the high-level guys.  This is something that I don’t really like, these guys go to the bar and they drop a 100 dollars on drinks and whatever the case may be, but when a local show comes through the area they want to get free tickets, you know what I’m saying?

They just dropped a 100 dollars at the bar, gettin’ drunk, showing off for their friends but they want to get free tickets to a local show—and the local fighters need the money. Dana White don’t need the money like the local fighters do!

What I’m saying is, don’t just support the biggest shows.

 I've been to tons of small shows...but yes, there are some shady promoters.  You hear about them every day on here.  People WANT to see the superstars so they are always going to go to the UFC.   It's funny too because I remember Din wrote a HUGE thread on here about Jamie Levine and blasted him harder than anyone ever has, then a few years go by and they are buddies again.   People still fight for promoters who've screwed them in the past, then complain when we don't support them? It's our choice where we spend our money.  I wouldn't go see some fighters fight and I wouldn't go to several promoters' shows just due to how they've treated fighters in the past.

Because it appeared to be an opportune time to throw in the random "liberal" bash, sensical or not, and judgment was clouded?

That's why he ran an illegal "ultimate fighting" ring in his gym. OK.

The responsibility is all on the promoters. Its not the fans job to support the sport of mma. Its the promoters job to make it appealing enough for people to spend their hard earned money on their shows. If someone would rather spend 100 bucks on drinks than go to a local show, then thats the promoters fault.

 frank, you've been to plenty of smaller shows.  I'm not sure how you missed the message Din was putting out there, but it seems like you did.

Steve Jobs don't need the money, Foxconn slaves in China do.
