After years of a relationship that could best be termed "sometimes rocky," billionaire businessman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has settled his differences with UFC president Dana White – at least enough for the UFC to open the door for Cuban's TV network, HDNet.

Cuban said the network will now be granted access to Zuffa events and will be able to use video highlights after fights. And he said Rice and Rutten would be at UFC events as part of the "Inside MMA" show.

"Over the years, Dana and I have had some disagreements at the business level," Cuban said on the show. "Because of those – and I can see his side of it, as well – HDNet has not had access to UFC events. We weren't able to be at the weigh-ins, we didn't have press credentials, we didn't get video after fights. So Dana and I have been talking for the past few months and kind of came to some agreements and worked things out."

Cuban said any perceived rifts with White over the years were merely the nature of business.

 hopefully now Inside MMA can stop using still frames when reviewing UFC events,
I highly doubt anyone's gonna see the 5-10 second highlights on IMMA and go "Ah well, won't order that UFC replay now"

This is big. It's like the UFC saying that they aren't a different league compared to other orgs.

I think it is good news. Hopefully the same emphasis on the other orgs will still be present and that the UFC will not push aside everything else.

Joe's all "we can curse?" ---"sweet! fuck fuck shit fuck suck" :)

and why is it funny that a week after Cuban calls out Dana, it's resolved? Calling someone out can create dialogue. Dialogue creates compromise. Compromise resolves conflict. Makes perfect sense to me.
