"He wants nothing to do with dos Santos. He's literally hiding from him," White said. AO is in Jamaica and didn't respond when contacted.

White offered Overeem a 5-round main event fight in Brazil against JDS, but he said AO turned it down. ….

White said he then offered Overeem a three-round co-main event fight in Vegas against JDS, and AO also turned it down.

Dana is ducking logic, as usual.

Emotional like Drake.

I can't say what I want about Dana.. but I truly wish someone in the HW division challenges Dana and has it in their contract a fight with him. He needs to be humbled.

Bad match up for Reem but exactly the type of fight that skips him to a title shot. Phone Post 3.0

Is there another promoter in any fight sport that shots on their own fighters as much as Dana does? Phone Post 3.0

Maybe Dana should not have said this, but shit.  Did anyone watch the last post fight presser? A reporter specifically asked AO if he wanted to face JDS.  AO was EXTREMELY evasive on the answer but it was obvious he wanted no part of it.  I can't really say I blame him.  It's a career move.  He's been on a losing streak and getting KO'd by JDS is not a way to improve his situation.

Dick move on Dana's part. I'm sure AO is just trying to rack up at least 2 more W's before he takes a dangerous fight like JDS or even Barnett. Phone Post 3.0

It's been obvious for a while reem is scared shitless of JDS, why else would he call out brock fucking lesnar?


throw bags of cash at overeem and he'll take the fight.... BUT THE UFC IS TOO CHEAP.

So the fight likely won't happen, no matter how bad dana tries to badmouth and bully his fighters.

How Dana says stuff like this about his fighters and then shakes their hands and looks them in the eye like all is cool is beyond me.

Last I read (if correct) his contract already gives him many more bags of cash per fight than most of the other heavyweights.  Something around 300K IIRC.  That's more than he is worth considering most of his recent fights in the octagon are him getting KO'd.

Honest story. I had a dream last week. Overeem was in it. He was sparring with some no-namer, got rocked and TKOed.

Then Dana comes out of nowhere, talks mad-shit, etc... and Overeem proceeds to kick his ass in front of the whole gym.

Thought it was funny given this thread/development.

ha! Dana REALLY hates fighters having enough money to not be at his beck and call.

I bet he wishes they were all on 6/6 so he can tell them what to do and when.

The BLAF is a caricature of himself at this point.
