Of course he was "harassed", he was probably being asked some decent questions for a change.

"Reporter tells Dana: I love your passionate speech that was all bullshit."

LOL well played reporter

Came off as trolling more than hard questions which is not surprising.  TJ has been a fixture in LA for awhile and is a known troll.  His schtick has always been to stir shit and is more about tabloid sensationalism than journalism.  I've heard him plenty of times on local radio and I've heard him break character where he pretty much admits his interest is less about the truth and more about causing controversy.  He was fired recently from the LA Times and is apparently in the process of trying to get a show made about his life.

The UFC brand isn't bigger than the NBA, boxing, and nowhere near as big as the NFL. Sounds like a reporter finally called him out on his bogus claims and Dana threw his typical hissy fit when he didn't get his way.

There's a lot of shit reporters need to man up and hold Dana's feet to the fire over, for example fighter pay being so opaque, the leash he has on the media with press credentials, or his willingness to throw fighters under the bus...

 

But him being a fucking promoter and saying the UFC is huge is NOT something you should give a fuck about lol He does enough hamful lying, that's it's pretty retarded you expect him not to promote. And he usually adds some fucking lame caveat like -- I meant bigger in terms of global appeal or whatnot.

 

Who gives a fuck, it doesn't sound like he thre a hissy fit, it sounds like that reporter was being a cunt...

 

I wish more ppl would be as persistent and cunty as that reporter, but not waste his questions on trivial retarded shit like whether punching ppl can save lives -- which it most fucking certainly can

Yes it is.

Go to any other country in the world and fucking ping pong is more popular than the NFL. You are too hung up on what is popular in America. On a global scale, the ufc brand is bigger. Phone Post 3.0
