"There's never been a place in the world designed and built for fighting." - Dana White (while promoting the new facility that he and Ari built on land bought next to the performance center and trying to convince reporters that his building is the "future of fighting"): At 6:55 -

I'm no classics scholar, but the Roman Collesium?? And I'm sure hundreds of places after that?

The building which they plan to hold boxing events, concerts, etc. can hold a whopping 1,500 spectators.

The live audience is not the focus of that place. Sure they can host TUF fights, Contenders Series type fights there and thats all they were looking for with that venue. The live streaming is the focus.

They can go down the street to the T-Mobile when they have something bigger where they want a larger audience.

The place is all about the production studio. They are going to do their remote production of fights streaming from all over the world via the new studio. Thats the focus of the place.

The 1,500 seats are almost just a decoration.

'What's that? The UFC have built a place specifically designed to cater to the needs of fighters and their teams plus will be able to not only hold events but will be able to broadcast all types of combat sports 24/7 from around the world, let's take one sentence Dana said and use it to shit all over the entire thing'

He knows better. I'm sure went to the blue horizon in Philly while it was still up. So many classic fights there.

First he invents boxercise

Then he invents the UFC

But his crowning achievement is the invention of something called a gym

 

 

Guy is a fucking genius

They built a building that holds an octagon, with fighter bathrooms and where they can video record fights? Applies to about a thousand mma gyms across the world. Wow you fell for Dana's hype train.

I love Chael obviously and he's the most qualified name we know, but he has a Podcast, he's on TV doing analyst work. It's tough to transition from "Ariel and The Bad Guy" to running and promoting the UFC
