When has Dana teased and not delivered?

His "very, very, very likely" comment about Brock made me wonder when he has teased big news or a big fight and had it NOT come to fruition.  I mean Conor vs. Floyd initially seemed like all marketing BS, but it wound up happening.  Were there any big instances where he acted like he was getting a fighter or making a fight and it never happened?  

I'm not sure if he 'teased' about it, but Fedor felt likely for a while. Could be more from the Russian side rather than Dana, but there was a period where he went from total insults on Fedor, to somewhat tolerable.

 

True - Dana did act like he was willing to do anything to get Fedor, but he clearly wasn't.  Forgot about that - and that dragged on for a long time.  

still waiting for the BASE jump off the Mandalay Bay

When the announcment turned out to be dolls.

The superbowl of mma.

- Dana after UFC 112

Dana got okie doked by Pride when he sent Chuck over to their GP (where he lost to Rampage in the semis) and didn’t get anyone in return. He was supposed to get Sakuraba and/or Cro Cop at the time for a fight if I remember correctly.

Yeah, as I recall, the UFC was supposed to get Sakuraba for a fight.

Other than that, the big tease was getting Fedor, but that's less Dana's fault, and more Fedor's management, imo.

at least once or twice over the years, likely on a day ending in 'y'

Oh that bastard has blue balled me many times

How the fuck did I forget this?

Still waiting, Baldfather. Still waiting.

At the big "The Time is Now!" press conference, the big announcement was "We didn't get it done on time."

I have them all in my media center and have asked for permission to share them but got a big no from Cindyo back then.
