White: Bellator has 'no f---ing clue'

 

"They have no f--- clue what they're doing," White told reporters Saturday night. "When they're in this business, right, and things are going well, you start grabbing for anything. You have a bunch of guys who don't know anything about fighting at the network. Networks acquire content. They don't become promoters."

Bellator is considering a Jackson-Jones fight as a potential pay-per-view debut. To which White basically says, "good luck."

"Nobody wants to watch them on free TV," White said. "They're pulling terrible ratings. If they want to get into the pay-per-view business, get ready to lose some money boys. Real money."

Well yes, I guess you could look at it like an asshole. Alternatively:1) Rampage catches RJJ and gets huge publicity2) Rampage gives RJJ a war and gets big hype for it 3) Rampage loses to RJJ honorably and gets fired up to return to MMA Whatever happens, it's an interesting fight and if there are names like King Mo, Askren, Chandler, Alvarez etc I'll definitely buy that PPV.It's natural for Dana to do this, he's a promoter and Bellator's future is slowly looking a little brighter.

"If bellator put on a stacked card to go along with the freakshow main event people will watch"Sorry but I strongly doubt the most stacked PPV Bellator could put together could do more than 100k buys at most. Also, putting on a garbage main event like Rampage/RJJ could actually cause some hardcore MMA fans (like myself) to be LESS likely to buy it, not more.The only way I'd buy a Bellator PPV is if it looked something like this:Chandler vs. Alvarez IIRampage vs. NewtonCurran vs. StrausKhasbulaev vs. Nunes/PitbullDantas vs. Warren/Rivera/Leone/Marx

kind of ironic he calls fight master a complete rip off of the voice and ultimate fighter, yet i seem to recall the first season of ultimate fighter having challenges for immunity.... wonder who innovated that shit.

LOL @ all the UFC shill faggots that slurp up every bullshit lie Dana sells.If Dana thought he could have Roy Jones Jr...vs ANY of his fighters...even if it was a washed up Quinton Jackson, he damn well would NO QUESTION.Shit, Dana had a washed up James Toney fight a near 50 yr old Randy-lolDana did the same exact thing talking HUGE AMOUNTS of shit about Kimbo, and anyone signing him to fight....called him a total can and "king of the hobo league"....Then he hired a 2nd hand, on the downside version of Kimbo....Gave him fights in the UFC and actually used Kimbo as the centerpiece to advertise his TUF reality show....even though Kimbo lost early on they still used Kimbo as the main advertisement point to sell the show and now said that Kimbo was a "REAL FIGHTER"Dana talked massive shit about Strikeforce...then he bought Strikeforce.Dana talked MASSIVE MASSIVE shit about Fedor...and then proceeded to do everything in his power to get Fedor signed and offered him more money than any fighter that has ever been in the UFC, including Tito, Chuck, Randy, and Hughes....When he failed to sign Fedor he called Fedor a "can" who was never that good anyway.Just lol
