Translation: "I really, really wanted Travis Browne to win."

EDIT: From my reply below - Calling a dominant performance where Werdum beat Travis on the feet for most of the fight "safe" is trashing the man.  He fought Travis 90% of the time in the most dangerous place for him.

From the post-fight press conference (imagine red faced Dana post-JDS vs. Cain 1) via Bloody Elbow:

"He fought a safe fight to guarantee the [title shot]. I think he could have finished Travis, but Travis is a tough guy. They think he broke his rib in the first round. That would explain it. He definitely has a broken hand."

The medical suspension for Browne only mentions a cut and a broken nose. Nothing about his hand or rib. Wonder why Dana is saying that. Phone Post 3.0

I don't know, what Dana is saying seems pretty accurate to anyone that watched the fight. I'm not saying he def would have finished Browne but anyone clear as day can see Werdum coasted the last couple of rounds in that fight. I certainly don't blame him either, but I don't think you can deny he did it.

LMAO


In fairness Werdum beat on him all night. It would have been foolish to stay in there looking for a finish and risk catching a bomb.

To me this make Werdum and even better fighter because fought smart. Why give the other guy help in landing a hail Mary punch by trading with him. Fighting smart and defensive is why PBF is considered the best boxer by most boxing fans.

I haven't watched the post fight. However he should be throwing praise on Werdum. That was an exceptional display of asskickery and will sell more PPVs than Browne. Phone Post 3.0

Werdum landed the second most of his significant strikes in the fifth round!  TOTALLY COASTING!

OP: Why would Dana/Zuffa prefer Browne win knowing full well Cain is set to come back for the MEXICO card and coach TUF Latino? You do realize Werdum is a HUGE face of UFC south of the border and is fluent in spanish....no? Phone Post 3.0

I would have thought that Dana would be happy that Werdum won, regardless. You have the perfect opponent to face Cain when the UFC enters Mexico and the guy brings it, what more do you want? Fuckin' egg.

Seems like a fairly mild (if unwarranted) criticism to me, and I really dislike Dana.

I would hardly call it 'trashing'

Because Werdum is one of the last Pride heroes and he TRASHED his growing new UFC star, from pillar to post.

lol, what? Werdum has been fighting in the UFC since 2007. Do you honestly believe anyone recognizes him primarily a pride fighter?

When asked if Gina deserves an immediate title fight he is all for it like it's the most obvious thing to do. Then when asked about Cruz he pulls the "He should take a non title fight first IMHO". Phone Post 3.0

Ok Dana wasn't trashing werdum , he said he thought werdum could have finished Travis but he coasted through, werdum himself said he played it safe cause it was a important fight! Dana said about Browne he THINKS he broke his rib and said that would explain why he gassed in the first round! You people like to say things to make them sound worse than they are Phone Post 3.0
