Is it really that hard to give a guy a few days after a terribly hard fight to get his head together ? Is it too much to ask to not bash a guy who has been not only a goldmine for the UFC but also a great ambassador for the sport, especially in a post fight press conference ? 

 

Dana, I understand that your personna is this blunt speaking person, but this time , you went too far. I think you owe GSP and the fans a public apology

Dana went full retard tonight. He was being a complete jackass. I am cool if he says "Initially I disagree with the decision. But I am going to go back and watch it again and see."  But instead he acted like a giant baby insisting that Johnny destroyed GSP which isn't the case at all. I disagree with the decision but it essentially came down to a close first round.

I agree. BLAF is losing his mind. He should be more objective.

He definitely didn't look his best tonight.

Goes on a tirade against GSP and ridicules his performance and post-fight speech...


... GSP comes on stage and gives a sincere and heartfelt explanation of his perspective, thanks the fans, thanks the UFC, and promises to NEVER EVER turn his back on the UFC.

Good job Dana LOL

Yeah instead he just pestered and bullied him into a rematch (apparently) and downplayed GSP's problems.

Can't wait to hear Bjorn's take on Dana's comments since media love asking the two about one another.

Classless by Dana. For all he knows GSP is dealing with a serious family/personal issue. Until he knows GSP's rationale behind his decision, why insult him and question him over it?

Yeah I thought it was a bit rash, especially after having experienced a similarly controversial title fight decision earlier in the year. I expected a more measured response from the prez, he must just be itching to have it out with Kizer, that's all I can put it down to. Phone Post 3.0

B_Goetz - Between him and Rogan, I'm starting to dislike the UFC.

My dislike for the UFC comes more from the piss poor judging.....it's been like that for a long time.

 

*Cough Shogun Vs. Machida 1 to name one of many....


The UFC is as much a victim of the athletic commission's incompetence as anyone. I can't fault them for the judging. Calling for reform in the judging (finally) is the one right thing Dana said tonight.

Gsp is Dana's cash cow. Gsp is eager to please. Dana scolds gsp publicly to coerce him into another fight with Jonny.

Dana looks after nobody but himself and the bottom line. Always has and always will Phone Post 3.0

Dana went Don King low tonight, GSP has been a saint and a gold mine for the UFC, really uncalled for. I believe GSP has been planning/considering retirement and Dana's comments were an attempt to tarnish GSP's victory, hoping he'll stick around for a rematch.

Agreed 100% it was absolutely disgusting.

Fair enough venting your anger about the judging but to rag on GSP for wanting time off when he doesn't know the circumstances behind it is totally fucked!

It sounds like GSP may have some real physical or mental issues (with these episodes of losing time and unable to sleep) and all Dana can think of is his cash cow walking away.

Disgraceful.

The Fella - 

GSP despite everyone thinking he lost the fight deserves more respect. He's an all time great, the judges made the decision...he went out and did what he could.


This is so true.

Dana looked emotionally distraught, even the reporters were wondering why he was behaving like that. Not his finest moment for sure.
