I bet Mike was sweating buckets when Dana called him out. He probably still has his adrenaline pumping lol. Good on him to stick up for himself though. He's one of the good guys in the mma media. Phone Post

I love Dana, but there's a reason for the ole "Thou art mortal, Caesar." bit...

Hats off to Mike, THAT takes alot of courage in the MMA business and VERY few are willing to do that publicly.

Again, I love em both....but I think Dana should be man enough to accept anothers' opinion (as he has done before)...and Mike should suffer NO ill consequences for this.

If it is okay for Dana to be honest, then it should be okay for everyone else, media and fighters.

It's Chiappetta's job to challenge Dana face-to-face as a journalist in a professional setting. That's his time to be honest and ask the hard questions. But Twitter? Come on, he's just begging for Dana not to take him seriously.

Dana White doesn't pay the fighters, the Fertita's do. Dana owns 10% of the company what he does with his salary has fuck-all to do with paying the fighters. Because you know whenever Jerry Jones or Robert Kraft cut a player they hop in their Kia's and go straight to their studio apartments. Oh wait, no they don't they just keep on going living their lives. One thing has nothing to do with the other and Mike knows it. He's just trying to make a story out of nothing. Phone Post

Dr Doom - Dana is such a cunt now.

And cunt is the right word. Not an asshole, douchebag, jerk - he is a true cunt. Nearly every time he opens his mouth, something cunty comes out.

Chia pet is 100% correct on this issue.

The cunt will tip waiters more than he pays the guys who bleed so he can waste his money.
The UFC's money does not belong to Dana White, Dana White's money does not belong to the UFC. His gambling and tipping has no connection to what the UFC pays it's fighters. Phone Post

Honestly, I don't blame him for not wanting to pay Fitch 66k out of his own pocket. I can barely justify paying $55 to watch the guy fight.

Like both guys but Dana has every right to do whatever he wants with his own personal money.

I guarantee you boxing promoters and NHL owners don't get this type if crap, it's just the holier than though mma media and community who would get wound up by this. Phone Post

Total bullshit on a couple of levels.

How is it bullshit? I really want to know why you think someone's personal wealth and what they do with it is everyone elses business?

Do you think Dana's personal bank account is the same as Zuffa's?

Pretend you have a pie. Say dana and 2 other guys take really large pieces of this pie then leave the rest to split up amongst a large group of people, if dana and the 2 other guys take larger pieces will there be more or less pie to go around for everyone else?

I get where Chiappetta is coming from. But it's like what another poster said, one thing is business and the other is personal finances. I don't agree with the UFC cutting Fitch, but Fitch making 120k for each win is a lot of money for a subpar performance that isn't exactly pleasing to the eyes.

If they baked the fuckin pie, why shouldn't they take large pieces?

They can take larger pieces because they paid for it.
