Just let Dana kill MMA and set up Kimbo vs Brock, so we can all move on... As far as I can see that's where this is headed.Originally Posted by MrBadGuy

TUF and UFC on the whole are headed wherever the money flows. I already see more drama than substance on the show, but it's spilling into the pre-fight hype too, a la Don King promotions.
Remember when Dana used to wear a suit and look like a professional businessman?
Remember when everybody was shocked by those F-Bomb speeches? Not that the look makes the man, but in this case the whole presentation is summed up in Dana's personal appearance - it's turned smug, spoiled and sloppy and gotten too rich to give a ****. It's really unfortunate because I used to actually think Dana was great and a good representative of the sport.
He went to the house in the early episodes and admonished these guys for being wild fuckups and making the sport look bad. "If you guys act like violent, childish assholes, the whole sport suffers..." Now he's promoting that type of ****.
But it really doesn't seem to matter when it comes to the bottom line. The show and fight sponsors now are Budweiser, Burger King, Pepsico, etc. Used to be Condom Depot and Xyience...

Think he'll make sure Brock gets his ass kicked anytime soon? He certainly shows poor sportsmanship - refer to post Mir interview please.
And as far as acting like an ass outside the show wasn't one of the coaches on this season "acting like a nutcase", or did I just imagine Rampage being involved in some kind of hit and run? Wasn't there some shitty excuse like "oh...don't worry, he's just lactose intolerant. It won't happen again."
And now he's coaching on TUF?

what i don't get is where Rampage got the idea his fighter had a sick ground game. he said something along the lines of "he has good striking, and great jujitsu. his wrestling isn't good, but that doesn't matter when you're great at jujitsu".

I would hate to lose Fight Night and Unleashed, but there's no reason they couldn't join the WEC assets on Versus. I am no fan of Comcast, but Viacom seems to be out of their damn minds.
