The gladiator was kind of gay. Good riddance.

 Dana, hire some creative people for Christ's sake.  Lookoutawhale is long proven as the UG kingpin, start there. 

The exclusion of fighter profiles on FOX is a big mistake if you want new fans.  It's mandatory for the public to get emotionally vested.  I know time is limited but even if you have to cut fights from the FOX airings, or cut worthless fight analysis to give new fans a reason to care about fighters they haven't heard about, you need to jump on that.  My vote is less jibber jabbing with guys like Jon Jones who only want to talk about themselves, and more inside info new fans need.  This is a golden opportunity to get to the next level by securing the mainstream and you're wasting airtime using the pro football model.   The NFL sells itself, the UFC cannot excel under that because the fighters are unknown to the masses.  So.... more primetime pieces, less JB/Couture/Jones table conferences.  Nobody cares what some guys they've never heard of think about a sport they're new to.  Save that for Fuel where the hardcore fans are.  

Your little piece on Rashad's family was good, but no Davis piece? C'mon man.

Strikeforce should pick him up. With a few more win he'll be back in the UFC in no time.

Who is the Gladiator guy?

We need to know who he is.

He deserves tickets to a fight.

Or an interview gig.

I liked the gladiator. It was branding. You KNEW it was a UFC PPV with that guy on screen.

Now, it will feel like random MMA show on HdNet or Showtime. Phone Post

To be fair, he was only quoting some ancient Roman book.

The Gladiator intro has become inextricably tied to the anticipation of watching fights.
As cheesy as I'll admit the intro is; I'm still gonna miss it :'(

 An ancient Roman book from the same library where Dana borrows his literature from no less!

Leave the gladiator, ditch the music.
Could have just updated the gladiator a bit, introduced a fresh take on it.

Oh well. Out with the old, in with the new. Phone Post

Great, just great!

Diaz vs. Condit is my birthday present to myself. Also it's my best friends 1st UFC ppv.

His second encounter with mma in general, if you consider last nights card "mma..."

Now it's like we will both be watching for the first time.

Thanks.

Happy birthday to me, right?

Death to gladiator, long live the UFC... Phone Post

CRE - Dana turning his back on the pioneers who built this sport knows no end.
This ^

And,

I've been saying this since the news broke that Dana sold out the UFC to FOX.

He's changed his stance on alot of things.

The whole gladiator start of the show was like a trademark .

The UFC we grew to love and have supported through tears and hard earned money has been raped by Dana in a windowless van, and is no more.

Goodbye sponsors .

Yay !! We get more suck ass football music and animated robots and shitty commentators . YAY FOR THE GAY !!! Phone Post
Didn't Dana said somewhere that its not the nfl song its fox sports theme song Phone Post

Although the Gladiator wasn't nearly as annoying as that horrible rage metal playing in the background.
