Ok, apologetic may be an overstatement but at 3:00 minute mark Dana seems relatively contrite

If Georges said he's speaking to the media Friday and Dana said he's scheduled to talk to him Thursday it sure seems like he's lining things up to announce a retirement or at least relinquish the belt and take some time off.

man, why is it so hard for Dana to just clarify why he was so upset, anyway, he called it a meltdown, so he concede he went overboard.

I don't know why people are so interested in the "meltdown" at the press conference. At the time Dana hadn't even discusses anything with Gsp.

If you watch the post fight presser Dana is very calm and reasonable because he has just chatted with him.

Fair enough if the Ug overreact but how can the media, when they were there for both? Phone Post 3.0

He is likely talking about the scrum with the media which occurred after both the post fight pressed as well as his chat with George. Dana was more calm and admitted it himself. Also admitted he understood where George was coming from more. Phone Post 3.0

The thing that seemed odd was it's a GSP press conference not a UFC press conference so it would seem it's not announcing a fight etc unless his rematch is going to be his last. Phone Post 3.0

ya I re read what I wrote, but that's the worse part, he should have talked to GSP before the press conference, instead of walking right into the presses hand and shit on GSP.

Then he talks to GSP and at the post fight, post confrence presser SCRUM (shit is confusing ) he acted the way he should have at the post fight press confrence.

Only the mma specialist media attends the post presser scrum, kinda late to the party Dana was, you don't shit on GSP to the entire world,at the press confrence where the mainstream media will report from, then change the way you act after the fact ,to the actuall mma media later on and think its going be gravy.

You gotta think if he retires it'd be a huge blow to ratings. Of the casual fans I know, the only names they really know (whom are still fighting and in contention) are GSP and Silva. A few know Jones and Chael, but not well enough that they'd make a point of it to watch them fight. GSP and Silva are sort of the last of the "old guard" from the era where MMA rose to prominence.
