He came out to a club in Hawaii not too long ago. Fashion 45's I think. I've heard from multiple people that he was drinking his ass off.

Dana is totally spot on there. With that said, he needs to work on preventing an atagonistic relationship with the labor (fighters, coaches, etc.). Honestly that's the biggest problem running with the UFC right now and if he and Zuffa can get it together on that front they'll be a much better strategic position.

yeah, i agree. Dana sure does hold all the cards in "ultimate fighting" now. But his arrogance will come back to bite him in the ass eventually.
guys like Diaz who moved onto EliteXC and pride, and praise how well they're treated. Soon to be the same sentiments from Brandon Vera as wel no doubt....guys that are still young and will be superstars in the sport. Their opinions will matter.
Dana needs to be humbled, so that he can see that this sport, will eventually be a fighters market, and not about the brand.....its bound to happen sooner or later

and a day later, here's a source for my original post
"MMAWeekly has confirmed that Pride’s April 28th show in the U.S. has been canceled. The event listing has been removed from the schedule on Pride’s official website.
The cancellation follows news of President of Pride USA Ed Fishman’s potential lawsuit with Dream Stage Entertainment, parent company of Pride Fighting Championships. Following Pride 33, Fishman and Pride had a falling out due to disagreements over several issues. Part of the rift stems from differing views on business agreements in the United States, and part of the rift stems from Fishman’s public push to buy Pride outright.
Sources close to MMAWeekly have reported that DSE offered to buy Ed Fishman out of his contract and relieve him of his duties as President of Pride USA, but that there is a dispute over the dollar amount that would be owed to Fishman if a buyout were to take place. Fishman is apparently prepared to pursue legal action on the matter.
All of this has come to a head recently due to Pride’s heavily rumored financial troubles. Pride has received multiple offers for the company’s purchase, with the two most prominent coming from Zuffa (the UFC’s parent company) and Fishman. DSE has consistently denied that Pride is for sale."

They seem to be just fine with K-1, and the Yakuza stigma might have turned a lot of them off.
