    seriously Dana White comes across as a bile soaked source of verbal diarrhea every time he's got a mic in his face or god forbid logs into twitter.

    I figured this was worthy of a post:

    http://mmajunkie.com/news/30563/in-w...y-anything.mma

    A few snippets:

    "I had to do what's right for myself by turning down that fight," Jones recently told the AP. "Dana had to do what was right for himself by putting the blame on everyone else except for himself. The lesson to be learned is, at the end of the day, you have to protect yourself and your family."
    "I think in the future, this can make me and Dana even better off," Jones told the AP. "For him to get out how he felt about me in that situation (on the call), it will help me look at things more business-oriented. A lot of good can come out of it. Fighters can learn the lesson of doing what's best for themselves and not feeling like puppets.

    "I think the UFC has learned a lesson of making sure they stay loyal to the fans and give them full cards."
    "I've been dealing with a lot of controversy," Jones said. "A lot of insults right now. People tell me, ‘You're the champ, you've got to take the fight.' Being the champ wasn't given to me. I don't owe anybody anything."
    It's quite possible that these serious of events could make things better for fighters and give them greater control. Then again, it could be the proverbial "enough rope to hang yourself"... That said, if the UFC begins to ensure that all cards have at least 3 potential main event status cards, it would likely ensure less control by the fighters.

    I do agree with the business aspect. It's a weird thing. Think of gym owners. Many gym owners are friends and good buddies with the guys they train with. That said, if they can't pay their membership dues, then something has to give. Bills are bills after all.

    The interesting thing about this is, the drama alone would make this a more compelling MMA movie then most of the drivel that's being coming out as of late.

    Curse you, Greg Jackson! Curse your hairless scalp and your wise smile that hides only hatred! You think I'm seeing things? Rewatch Guida-Maynard. That's what Greg Jackson wants us to see every, single, time one of his fighters climbs into the ring. His Machiavellian plots have begin to bear fruit, he has taken off the kid gloves to go toe to toe with Dana White and bring the UFC to its knees. With my last breath I spit at GREG JACKSON! From Hell's heart I stab at GREG JACKSON!

    GREG JACKSON DELINDA EST!
