One Bad Apple: Having only one guy run the entire sport is bad for it. Dana is dangerously close to becoming the Stienbrenner of MMA.
2wolves: Mr. White is losing control as the sport continues to grow.
the biggest redneck here: 2wolves: Mr. White is losing control as the sport continues to grow.Except in reality, where just the opposite is true. Bellator in its current state is the weakest #2 in a decade, and now UFC also controls the (newly popular) wimminz. Factor in their global TV expansion and online streaming library, and Zuffa's --and, by extension, Dana's-- power grip on the sport is BY FAR at its most powerful.
van1ty: Jackson is one of the most annoying figures in MMA. If you want to rip your ears off, watch Joe Riggs' last fight on the Fightmaster reality series.
GavinTheAlmighty: van1ty: Jackson is one of the most annoying figures in MMA. If you want to rip your ears off, watch Joe Riggs' last fight on the Fightmaster reality series.I'm immune to Jackson after listening to the unlistenable Keith Florian. Jackson sounds like Stephen Fry mixed with Alan Rickman compared to Keith Florian.Anyway, good article. You don't see much about the behind-the-scenes stuff from the coaches' points of view.
Flappyhead: It would help a great deal if the smaller promotions were more competant and worked on promoting young up and comers instead of trying for name recognition. Looking at you Bellator.
violentsalvation: The worst of those comments from Dana came after the cancellation of UFC 151. And honestly a little bit of me agreed with Dana at the time, it would've been nice of Bones to save the card. Jackson doesn't bother me, look what he's done with Cub Swanson. Cerrone, Jones, Condit, they are all finishers.
