"I had first assumed it was going to be Barao, or McDonald or Menjivar and Barao was my first prediction. I started getting tape on him as soon as I found out about Dominick. This was a couple of weeks ago. Then, when Dana came in to do the announcement, I asked him if there were any hints or insights on who it would be and he was saying 'Oh, you wouldn't believe what all had gone down, how McDonald broke his hand and Barao didn't want to leave Brazil, to leave Aldo's side, because Aldo was training' and all this crazy stuff, so I didn't know for awhile. Then like two days before the thing, I had text Dana and he was basically lying to me, saying it was gonna be Menjivar.

For like two days I thought I might be fighting Menjivar. Then the day of the announcement, I was like 'Are you sure it's not Barao?' And he was like, 'Yeah.' But I had a feeling that it was. Then Dana apologized right before he announced it, for basically lying, which is kinda weird, I thought, because Barao was there. I don't care who I fight, I told Dana I wouldn't say anything anyway, if he was thinking I might spoil the surprise, or what the deal was."

Dana does NOT lie.

Just check his boxing record and the time he BASED jumped off the casino. Oh and "paying the fans back" for Silva vs Maia...by charging them $60 for another card lol.

 Dana did the right thing by lying to Faber.

We got to see an honest reaction from Faber, which is what I wanted to see. 

It's not like the extra couple days will change his training and preparation that much.

Dana shouldn't lie to fighters. It sets a bad precedent. Phone Post

 Even if he loses Dana will keep him around to fight a couple more up and comers.

He has a brand, and that brand is strong in MMA.

I wondered why Faber was laughing at the video they had ready like the promo was some piece of shit or something. I suppose its further evidence of BLAF lying through his teeth.

I don't think Faber is all that upset about the 2 days, I think he's upset because Dana lied to him when he didn't need to. Probably hard for Faber to ever trust Dana again.
