Dude what kind of comparison is that. And why in the world would Dana White let somebody out of an exsclusive contract to get beat in another sport. What about the the injury he might sustain and f up his MMA contract/career. Dana White has done nothing but promote and progress the sport. Leaders are assholes, he doesn't hide that fact, he actually plays it up but as far as assholes go he is an effective one.

That involves them being allowed to occasionally compete outside of the UFC and outside the sport of MMA.
