Dana @209 Scrum: "Shaddup about Money Fights"

Dana pretty much spot on about fighters ducking competition and fighting for money. Is he tongu-in-cheek talking about Woodley?

Starts at 3:57 mark. Blue please.

Why don't they get that either you drawing fans to the company or you are not.

You are either making money for the company or not.

If you are not finishing guys/girls or FOTN candidate, don't complain.

Dana is correct.

Dana didn't just pay Conor outrageous amounts of money for nothing...he proved he was a top fighter AND a huge draw. Guys like Woodley that complain they want money fights are essentially admitting they can't draw and need someone else to bring in buys.

as much as I agree with the side that accuses the UFC of taking advantage of their monopoly, I also agree with dana in this regard... it is what it is... without a union, the only chance fighters have of making top dollar is to become a crowd favorite...

the UFC is sort of like the music industry in that you can be the most talented musician in the world and sell 1 album to the 5 that the boy band of the day sells...

This was going on before Conor. GSP vs Diaz and Chael vs Jones are examples. I wouldn't be bringing up Chael vs Jones if it happened the first time when Chael stepped up, but this fight was actually set up in advance the second time, and even given a fucking TUF show, all in the name of $$$.

Sounds spot on Pundidiot

This.

Also......

Says the billionaire who helps run a billion dollar promotion that has employees quiting because they pay too little at times. Who also gives title fights to people on losing streaks but at the same time gives #1 contenders anyfight but a title fight.

 

 

Yeah Dana, how dare those fighters.....

While I agree with his overall message....he started the whole trend

tenchu - Dana is correct.

He is this time.

As much as everyone wants a money fight since Conor, they first have to be at least 50% of a money fight.

Conor created his wealth by his antics and fighting backing them up.

These other guys (Bisping, Woodley) are nowhere close. Defend your fucking division for awhile, get more famous, then they can talk money fights. Fuck this "just won the belt - want only money fights" bullshit.

uhh Bisping got the money fight, so his antics worked...

He's now fighting a beefed up WW who's been off for 3 years instead of an absolute savage at 185.

I think that comment was a direct shot at Woodley who was one of the more recent fighters to campaign for a "money fight".

Then he goes out there tonight and fights very hesitant barely eeking out a decision. He doesnt fight like the big money fighters to try to command the same pay or even the same leeway.
