Dear UG,

When I first started following this sport there was hardly anything about it online. When I eventually joined the UG community it was awesome because I had a place I could go to talk about MMA, the UFC and the fighters with people who were knowledgeable and knew what was going on. I used to post on a regular basis, something that is nearly impossible to do these days because I rarely have the downtime like I used to, but I still continue to read what you guys have to say. I might not agree with everything that I see but the great thing about the UG is the people- you guys really do care about the sport and the athletes and I truly appreciate it, and that’s the thing that has always kept me coming back. The UG is one of the first places I go when I get on the computer and more often than not, it’s usually the last site (or one of the last sites) I check before I go to bed. I love this place, I’m thankful for the support over the years and I respect your input even if I don’t always agree with it. There’s nowhere else like it on the internet and trust me… I have looked.

House of Pain was one of my favorite bands for years and I am so excited that these guys will be performing (for the first time in over a decade) at the St. Patrick’s Day party I’m throwing at the Roxy on March 17th. I wanted to do something special for the UG so we came up with a contest that a lot of you should have a blast with. Just showing my love and appreciation to the UG.

Thanks again and good luck!

Dana

THE DANA FU#$%@# WHITE UG ONLY CONTEST

1.  FROM DANA WHITE TO THE UG
For the past eight months you’ve seen my vlogs and now it’s your turn. Make a video and tell me why I should fly you and three of your friends out to my Southie stomping grounds, take care of your accommodations, and give you tickets to the biggest and best (by invitation-only) St. Patrick’s Day party on the east coast! It’s that simple. To the winners, you and your crew will have a night you will NEVER forget and, trust me, it’s going to be crazy! Good luck!
- Dana White

2. DANA WHITE BRINGS “PAIN” TO BOSTON ON ST. PATRICK’S DAY

      On March 17th, UFC® President Dana White is headed back East to his Southie stomping grounds to throw the biggest St. Patrick’s Day party in Boston, featuring the first performance by House of Pain in over a decade. White and House of Pain will be taking over the Roxy for this invitation-only celebration.
      “Obviously I love the city of Boston, I just filmed my new show ‘Black Souls’ there, so  I’m going to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party with House of Pain at the Roxy,” said White.  “House of Pain was one of my favorite bands when I lived there, and they are going to perform again for the first time in over a decade.”
      "I'm excited about this party, Dana is one of the few people who could get me to do something again with House of Pain," said Everlast. "We're like the Santa Claus of St. Paddy's Day, and Boston is our North Pole, so we're coming home to deliver the goods - we're gonna play a lot of the old House of Pain stuff, some Everlast, and some other surprises. It's been about 13 years since House of Pain played together, so this is gonna be a lot of fun for all of us."

***3. ENTERING THE DANA FU#$%@# WHITE UG ONLY CONTEST***

Guys, I read an interview with a statistician about the lottery, and she said that your odds of winning a state lottery are pretty much the same whether you play or you don't. This is not that. This is just us.

Yeah, but us locals can win tickets on WBCN/WFNX without going through the contest proper (at least CindyO mentioned that yesterday).

I personally don't have the time to attend the concert, but it's a nice gesture none the less.

It's good to know that you're still reading the UG, Dana.

 For those if us (me included) that have bitched about something that Dana White has or has not done....we have to give credit where it is due.  This is FAN APPRECIATION!

Many thanks Dana White!
