Dana has never given a fuck about the sport, and his full cuntery has been unleashed and exposed with the Fertitta bros' exit. Within' the confines of excessively rich businessmen, or at least retrospectively compared to White, the Fertittas seemed to care about the sport.
I've been a dedicated fan of MMA and the UFC since 2001/2002 (or earlier if you count alluring glimpses of Pancrase on MTV in the 90s) and have barely missed a fight in any organisation since UFC 57, now my interest in the sport is waning due to White's meddling and apparent apathy or ignorance as to how his own business works. I used to get pumped watching high quality fights on the Facebook prelims and then occasionally shelling out for the PPV. No more! The shitty business practices and hard line delusional philosophy is too much to stomach. Seeing a career’s worth of wear on Rory this past weekend was a tough watch, is he even thirty? Wear which was earned in the UFC, Rory has been a participant in some of greatest MMA fights, let’s hope he gets his worth in Bellator.
If may seem foolish to pretend like withholding my euro will, in any way, have an impact on Dana or pitifully set in stone low-end fighter pay, but any irritant no matter how insignificant, from a disgruntled fan, to a fighter saying no, or to a journalist calling him out to his face on his idiotic hypocrisy, is almost becoming more enjoyable to watch then the increasingly bland and corporate product churned out.
