    It's a no-win situation for him, for sure. But he did leave himself open for the callout.

    Dana is absolutly right, when the UFC was hemoraging money Dana was working night and day trying to find away to turn things around. Atencio is happy to train for some bullshit fight while Affliction fades, thats the diffrence between the two men and the primary reason Affliction will fail, there head honcho doesnt have the work ethic neccessary for its sucess.

    Or to look at it another way, Antencio clearly cares about the sport for real, it's something he's passionate about, and even does himself, so he can truely relate to the fighters.

    Whereas Dana White just wants to make a shitload of money.

    Yeah, Dana left himself open for it. It shouldn't bother him and I'm surprised he even took the time to respond (but I guess acting like an adult was never his forte). I really hope Affliction succeeds, there needs to be a quality alternative to the UFC/WEC easily available and with name fighters competing.

    **** guys, we're losing money quicker then teenagers these days are losing their virginity. It seems its because the average mma "fan" is only exposed to the UFC. What would be an easy, cheap way to get the general audience thinking about, and looking into our fight promotion?

    **** guys, that Dana white is a Dick, and he constantly insults us simply for trying to run a fight promotion. I wanna kick his ass, but that's illegal. Any idea for how two people who run a FIGHT PROMOTION comapny could beat each other up without breaking the law?

    Obviously these guys aren't fighters, they're businessmen, someone might get hurt if they stepped in the ring....how about instead of the two parties fighting it out themselves, why don't they each get someone to fight for them.......

    Atencio is the one associated rough behavior and manner with fighters - Dana really is on the high ground.

    Also, could that interview be any more softball?

    "Excuse me, but I was wondering, do you happen to be aware I think exactly what you think and would you like five minutes to talk about it?"

    See, the thing about PR wars...emphasis on the first bit.

    Average MMA fan knows who Dana White is, what he looks like, and could probably tell you he curses a lot.

    This Atencio character? Is he in a band or something?
