I think a lot of it has to do with the way he supposedly treats his fighters. Ironic eh?
I think most people think they are cool by not liking things.
I don't hate dana white.
I think he's swell.
I really DON'T think Dana is encouraging steroid use. The fact is, the atheletic community is out of touch with the laws on steroids and vice versa. We all know certain people are not doing what they're doing clean, but fans don't really give a **** so neither do owners, promoters, etc.
Power/ego/money hungry. None of which are bad things, especially for someone trying to promote their brand and help the sport grow, but far too many times I've heard interviews with him and I've just cringed at the petulant child sound to his spiel. Can't knock him though, cause he gets the job done plain and simple.

He's like those old school politicians back in the old days, no political correctness or anything, men that did what was necessary to win situations...you know, the guys that most modern politicians like to pretend didn't exist?
What the **** do they expect Dana to do? The fighters get a year suspension when caught. Does Sherdog want the UFC to perma-ban the guys, talk bad about their mothers, or post compromising pictures of them online?
And I like Dana. But the UFC's penelties are already tougher than the NFL, NHL, NBA, or MLB's. AND the fighters get tested more often. Steroids are a huge problem in sports, but I don't think the UFC needs to "step it up".
I don't like Dana because hes rich, powerful, and probably gets more punanni then me. Plain and simple. I used to like him until a wise dutch man came into my life and said:
Dont respect people who can do things you can't.
You must hate them for it and try and steal their skillz.
If you still cant win..it's ok to attack someone when his back is turned.
lol, I think conceited is saying what a lot of ppl probably feel but are too chicken to say it.
nice work dana, owned him. I like the "I don't know if you've ever seen...." priceless.
Dana comes of as a little sardonic and righteous sometimes...but considering what he does...he's probably tame compared to some.
Who was the other guy he mentioned?
