Who remembers this DANA WHITE quote (2008)

"We put on fights between the best fighters; we don't put on freak shows. Even in the dark days, when we were bleeding money, we could have gone out and found a freak show. I could be on CBS right now, but I'm not going to make a crappy deal. We're in this thing for all the right reasons. Now people are out there trying to cash in."... "When the major media outlets would rather follow freak shows instead of real athletes, it's embarrassing."

That was fertita era

This is the WME era

It's sad

Brockback Mountain - That was fertita era

"Women will NEVER fight in the UFC, girls are pretty"

5 years later...

"Ronda Rousey can beat half the bantamweights on the roster"

St Pierre and Bisping is far from a freak fight. St Pierre is top 5 of all time vs bisping who beat a prime Rockhold. Quit crying. Romero will get his shot, as long as he doesn't fail a test.

Nobody appreciates sarcasm any more.

Exactly. Which way is the wind blowing today?

It's all about what will make the most money. I understand that, and it's up to all of us whether or not we're willing to part with our money for anything UFC-related.

As far as WMMA ... so what?  People can change their mind.  I don't see the big deal about that.  



The freak show stuff is legit.....  and retarded.

US culture. People are vilified if they change their views based on new information/analysis. Every public figure gets lambasted if they change on anything not just politicians.

He changed his mind? People do that..

Of course they do... ; )
