Dana White: Making UFC Unwatchable to Win the War Against Online Streaming

by Mitch Cumstein

The UFC's #1 goal, at the risk of alienating its entire fan base, is to win the war against online streamers, and UFC President Dana White has the perfect plan.

"My plan is to make our product unwatchable," Dana White said.  "I've been pushing for really bad matchmaking, more decisions, chasing off some of our biggest names. And Fight Pass? Check out that bullshit. It's like four fights from 2008. There are seriously more fights during a single season of House Hunters than we have on Fight Pass. This shit is so unwatchable the streamers will lose interest. And that's when we win."

anyone notice that China card blew away the Bellator show in terms of fight quality? Funny how things work out that way.

FightPass will get better, but those developers in India just have to upp their game, bit less of the worshipping cows, more time coding bros

Anyone notice how they were both entertaining? And how they shouldn't be compared because they're both MMA. Stop treating Bellator and the UFC like they're WWE and WCW fighting over ratings. People like you kill the sport. Phone Post 3.0

On the minus side the watered down cards kinda suck balls and you need a little orphan Annie secret decoder ring in order to figure out what outlet is showing each fight. On the plus side, he told me that on my deathbed I will receive total consciousness. So I've got that going for me, which is nice. Phone Post 3.0

The Dana, himself. Twelfth son of the Fertittas. The flowing robes, the grace, bald...striking.

So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver, he hauls off and whacks one.  Big hitter, the Dana.  Long.  Into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Dana says?

"Your an egg."
