i cant believe this statements!!! this guy isnt fair!!! why he have to talk so bad about all other organisations, fighters ( without UFC contract ), other sports???
cause he is protecting his business, and after the first loss he saw a chance to discredit fedor and he would do that in future many times.
He is so preoccupied with talking bad words about fedor...
stupid ass fag
Don’t argue with Idiots.. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
LOL! Dana is a trip...
BS ! If Fedor asked Dana to join the UFC without co promotion Dana would do it in a HEARTBEAT! Dont believe the crap ppl.
I guess we will see huh if fedar fights in the ufc. Oh wait, bc its not going to happen, bc fedar knows, you know, and everyone else knows. The guy is freaking out right now. "Oh crap they probably want me to fight lesnar or carwin or worse big country." I love how everyone on this blog is saying he would fight in the ufc in a heartbeat, bc if he lost to a guy who got kicked out of the ufc, oh crap.
werdum decided that he dont want to fight for the UFC because he was unhappy with his contract!!! and only one loss against a top contender like jds is no shame for me!!! werdum have worldclas bjj and a solid standup game !!!
and a loss to Arlovski
Funny part is Dana would still sign him in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose itself
I don't get it either. Out of 13 UFC fighters only 1 beat him. So does Dana really have better fighters?
GO DANA!!! go sign overeem i wanna see him fight jds and cain!!
Well Dana, Im gonna use the same langage you're using, FUUCK YOU DANA and Youre Fuccking egg head!
Who cares about what he says?? He'll twist self-evident facts and truths to justify his false arguments...He's been maligning Fedor and every other person or organization that opposes his interests to to score points for his own organization and insure its monopoly of the MMA sport...It's unfortunate that some fools listen to him and believe all the mis-truths and distortions he strives to spread.....What an ill-intentioned, hypocrite and evil man..........
Did Dana use to be obsesed with signing Fedor?
I think in the long run if Dana keeps treating his guys like this hell end up loosing ground for new recruits and eventually hell end up with 3rd rate fighters.
The thing I like about Fedor, is that he never said he was the best, we did.
One of the Gracie's broke down the Fedor/ Werdum fight. Fedor got baited, he wanted to finish the fight and he got caught by one of the best submission fighters in the heavyweight division.
Dana White never cut Lesnar after he got heelhooked, he gave him a title shot against an aging light heavyweight. Dana is the problem with MMA, not the future.
This Dick head only cares about money......like to trash talk about all organization, ....unprofessional attitude. No wonder M1 or FEDOR doesn't want to join UFC..., which kind of sucks for the fans..
This is the type of person, talk trash behind your back...I hate them types of peoples.
You try hard to not get it. Fighting washed up UFC fighters, and fighting in Japan, is not the same thing as fighting the top competition in the top organization. There are many fighters in the UFC, not all of which are even HW's who can beat Fedor more times than not.
But they were good enough to be signed. And now Fedor isn't?
Dana would sign Fedor. This is just strategy. They're chopping Fedor's legs out for the next time negotiations take place.
yup, that sounds about right.
Just remember what Dana said against his then hated enemy Ortiz, and yet he re-signed him and even put him as coach on the Ultimate Fighter. If he turned 180 ° to recognize Tito, what would he do to win Fedor? Dana is smart and know very well that the Emperor is more likely than not to defeat Werdum in a rematch and beat most fighters...He know Fedor is gonna come back, stronger than before......
Kimbo was good enough to be signed and Fedor not. Dana has double standards all the way.
this bitch ass egg! talks about not wanting fedor but he sing james toney.. come one dana be realistic dude!! i ****ing hate fedor but to diss him becaus he lost his first fight!? uhmmm
Trashy move Dana.
You are UFC President not a loser aerobics instructor anymore - act like it!
... and 1, and 2, and 3, and 4 breathe! ... haha!
Hate? Has he done something bad to you? I've lived in war for 3 years and trust me you don't have a clue what real hate means. i don't like Brock at all, but I don't hate him, why should I?
Dana, you don't deserve to have Fedor.
Dana White is the Don King of MMA. But he has less scruples.
I understand business is business but I think Dana White takes things too personally sometimes. He's wanted Fedor so bad that he's done all he can except the co-promotion. Now Dana White says he doesn't want Fedor because I believe it's a personal thing now. Fedor and M-1 will not have an upper hand when it comes to negotiating because the mystique of being undefeated is out the window. I see Fedor eventually coming to UFC.
Dana is such an arrogant idiot, he cares just about money, he doesn't give a shit about the sport and fighters, being so disrespectful whit a legend like Fedor. Martial arts are about respect, and ufc has a president that doesn't know what that word means. Take care of your business and leave the other's alone. We are fans of the sport not organisations and because of your shit talk no one will stop watching fights in SF or Dream live with it!
Maybe not a title shot right away... but he deserves to be in there
Dana White said its his job to get fight people want to see. We'll I still want to see Fedor fight in the UFC. Make it happen bitch!! Stop being a **** and if you have a chance sign Fedor. If he loses then you can laugh all the way to the bank. Your still making money.
Dana is talking sh*t - "Guys that are fighting in the UFC are fighting 3 times a year..." I wonder who did so called UFC champion Brock Lesnar fought 3 times this year? He fought Frank Mir in JULY 2009, today is JULY 2010, I guess we all missed his two imaginary fights. hm... Cain Velasquez has a record 8-0, much respect for him, but by Dana's standard if Cain loses one fight he would throw him out of the UFC? What about the number one contender - Shane Carwin? He fought only once in 2009, I guess we missed another two fights in 2009. No disrespect to Shane. Just shows how Dana sees things. And saying: " (about Fedor) this guy loses and he gets two fight one of these guys (UFC HWs)? " Like he thinks its unfair, c'mon Dana, what about giving your roid freak Lesnar, a title shot after how many fights and a loss? Or did we miss 20+ fights that Lesnar won? Saying that nobody cares about Fedor is just stupid, even people who hate Fedor (for reasons I don't get) would pay a lot of money to see him fight anybody in the UFC especially. I don't believe a word Dana says. If Fedor comes to UFC, Dana would be singing completely different song. Dana said: No freak show back in the day, what about Brock? biggest freak of all, acts like an ape, looks like an ape. Now J.Toney, lots of respect for him in the boxing ring, but c'mon he can't even speak properly anymore? Who in the right mind would believe Dana White. You have to look at his statements as statements of a used cars salesman, he says what he needs to say, not what he really think. Can you blame him? As a person, I think Dana is a sneaking f*ck, but as a promoter and the UFC president he is great!
Long but good. Amen
Just sayin lesnar almost died thats why he didnt fight, and Carwin had to fight Lesnar and since he had to fight him he has to train for him if lesnar falls out of the fight, he has to train for someone else? I bet you wouldnt wana change your whole game plan.... I dont think Carwin will ever face another guy like Lesnar and there is a bigggggggg difference between everyone Carwin has faced and Lesnar and Cain wouldnt get cut after one loss, becuase he is better then every fighter in SF its just the way things go man get over it.
Who cares? Fedor doesn't need the UFC and the UFC doesn't need Fedor. They both look like they have been happy and successful without each other.
Dana is my bitch.
The no fighting bald bigmouth is running again, does anyone listen to this prick?
you did, oh snap
I heard, I didnt listen....its like not inhaling means you didnt smoke the stuff.
All of you Fedor lovers are just upset that your boy got beat by a guy that was kicked out of the UFC for losing
you are dumb. do a little research before talk crap about things you dont know
Left due to contractual disagreements. Personally I am a huge Fedor fan but I see no shame in losing to an Abu Dhabi champion on the ground.
Like I said before moves like this will start getting people to discredit the UFC. Then someone like Vince McMahan will come in with crap load of money and start signing the "best" out of the UFC.
Anderson Silva is about to hit the door the way Dana treats him.
Dana White in about 2yrs will be fired and will be a clown just like the picture he was taken with one. This time you can get your picture taken with him.
I just think it is kind of funny when the brothers who own the company say Fedor has a home and will be welcome in the UFC when he is ready. Dana says NOPE. I am I missing the boat or is this insubordination. I know he has control and the bros have made money from him. It is not like Dana has started the organization from ground up. If Pride was still around the UFC would be nothing. Unfortunately , Pride made some bad decisions and went broke. Look for Dream to be the next Pride. Also look for Dream to show the Fedor vs. Lesnar/Carwin fight. Afterall, even Brock and Shane says " the best should fight the best". If their own is going to close the door on Fedor then they need to make a move to somewhere else because they are not fighting the best.
The UFC is now like the WWE. No it is not fake, but I really don't care about storylines and drama. I just want to see fights.
that'd be pretty fnny, but why would he sign with strikeforce when he's chasing so many opponents and opportunities that the UFC has for him? Now that machida isn't champ he can compete at LHW more often.
This is a really pointless statement from Dana, Fedor never wanted to fight for the UFC before or after this loss so this is means nothing.
Dana is a DICTATOR.
No, he is just simple shiteater
if its true, of course it is tard. Thats what its all about, how many people watch and how much money was made. Don't get all bent out of shape bc your boyfriend lost 2 2nd class, HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
It kinda funny how you troll threads looking for someone who might be upset at the content, so you can inject your stupid opinions with the attempt to make them angrier.
Rule 1: Dont take anything too serious on the internet
2: Usually a loser will pick a pattern for their childish outbursts
(as I have noticed already with your replies)
3: When they want to fight and discuss meeting up(always funny)
Give them a quiet isolated location to meet(they never show)
So, do you have anything else to add that might amuse me?
There is a ton of things I would like to respond to that jerk ...but you guys have said plenty already.
All I would like to add is that , I don't care if he is the one who made UFC what it is today e.t.c.
HE DOESN'T DESERVE TO RUN THE BIGGEST MMA ORGANIZATION. HE IS AN EMBARASSEMENT TO THE SPORT AND HE PROVES THAT EVERY TIME HE OPENS HIS MOUTH.
bc he speaks the truth and your boyfriend lost. aaaah2bad
Yea that showed real intellect. I am sure he shed a tear at his loss.
you better sign off of this website then bc the ufc owns it, sucker!
I just lost respect for dana.
Dana does his job well =), but lately I have been starting to think would the UFC and mma still be just as big as it is today if some of their business tactics were changed...
Keep making these great cards Dana and fuk new York u will be putting cards on the moon haha - Overeem and Cung Le pls
Not even worth it! Don't argue with an idiot, Dana will stoop you down to his level and beat you with experience!
LOL! Dana is a trip...
You already posted this way up top.... Dont want anyone to miss such an important comment tho I suppose.
Actually it is an important comment...although a bit paraphrased by Rane here, the original quote was stated 2500 years ago by Aristotle. Since you are a fan of intellect , I find it weird that you didn't appreciate it... :-)
oh snap smiley face and aristotle in the same sentence.......GEEZZZZZ sure did show him
The smilley face was to show that Im not attacking him... just doing a conversation.
a guy 31-(2) who hasn't lost in a decade,can't fight in the ufc,now thats BS.
Surely, this is a joke. Surely this is posturing on Dana's behalf; poorly executed reverse psychology.
Dana could not tell you, with a straight face, that the UFC and in particular the HW division or maybe even LHW (if Fedor went down), wouldn't be better off and more competitive with Fedor in it.
Is he the best? Probably not, but one off night with Werdum doesn't eradicate his formidable skills. Even Werdum, after the fight, crowed about how great and wonderful Fedor "is", not was. In my opinion, Werdum was implying this guy is great and he was lucky, that night.
I like Dana, but sometimes he says some stupid things; this is one of them. It's like when he goes on about Chuck not fighting, again. He said that once before and Chuck was back; he's said it a second time and in my opinion Chuck will be back...he just says things, sometimes, that he really doesn't mean or is prepared to back-up; Paul Daley...give it a couple of years and he'll (probably) be back. What did he say in this interview....said he would never put on a "freak show", but none-the-less he is....but he's "built a great card a round it, though" - LOL
At the end of the day, he says a lot of crap, particularly in the moment (he's obviously a passionate guy), that he really doesn't mean; this is one of those examples.
I could easily see the card one day - where all those fighters that we were told will never be in the UFC....are fighting; UFC 150 - Banned or something like that.
DW - great promoter, great business man, not the most steadfast guy, when it comes to adhering to previous statements.
It's Dana What syndrome bro. basically he is a bitch. He does not get what he wants and goes on his bi-polar mode. He is a comedian bro, smoking blunts with Rogan! LOL!
What does this interview tell you, he has a lot of animosity inside him because Fedor has cleaned house and let alone, a world jiu-jitsu champion that Dana refused to re-sign beat him... STRIKEFORCE baby!
if kimbo can fight in the ufc then fedor should be able to fight in the ufc
Dana White is driving the Fedor fans nuts..haha
he just acting retard and guess what? that is not smart busyness
Bitch you cant even spell Business...
M-1 will probably go belly up soon and Fedor will sign with UFC. Fedor will get beat up by some heavyweights in UFC and will then retire. Fedor was great in his Pride days but not as much now. It seems that most fighters after they get married, go down hill. Priorities are probably different once they get hitched.
Did you not read the title of the video
Yeah, but Dana White says alot of stuff that he doesn't mean. He said Brock and K-1 was a joke and that he had no interest in signing Brock. Look what happened. He said Kimbo Slice was a joke while at Elite XLC and look what happened.
not that many watched fedor because almost no1 has showtime!
Listen to what a douche Dana is... "He is not great, everybody is talking about how great this guy is, and no he is not. Then he goes and looses to Werdum a guy who we cut from the UFC for loosing! You know what I mean? Now does he deserve to be brought to the UFC and fight the best?"
W-O-W! DANA IS A DOUSCHE!!!!!!!!!!!
He refused to re-new Werdum's contract because Werdum was totally getting under paid! He did not cut him for getting knocked out when he fought Dos Santos.. What about Tito Ortiz? How do you explain that? Kimbo Slice? James Toney? He is fighting in the UFC come August! Chuck Liddell!? Man, this guy is so lop-sided... What a joke... What comes around, goes around KARMA is a bitch...
I do not understand what people are misunderstanding..... He wouldnt give Werdum the money he wanted because he did not feel he was worth that amount. Why did he feel he wasnt worth it?? Well, we can speculate, but I am willing to bet that it had something to do with his being knocked-out by UFC up and comer JDS....
The whole Wold watch Fedor fight Dana is talking bull shitt becose the best MMA figter all time never foght in his stupid organisation.
This idiot called Dana destroyed the biggest organisation in the world PRIDE who had 30-70,000 spec. and some people stil sayin wath he das is good for the sport.Insted off talking crap he shuld let his champ fight SF champ just to see who is the best.
OMG EVERYBODY DANA WHITE SAID HE DOESN'T WANT TO SIGN FEDOR AND THEN SHARED SOME FACTS!! HOW DARE HE?!?!
Obviously Dana is lying out of his teeth again. The sound wasn't working for me but I could see his lips moving.
As has probably been said earlier, fighting is a business, Dana White is a business man and promoter. He's deliberately discrediting other organisations and fighters because it strengthens the position of the UFC. It has nothing to do with how talented the fighters are or how well the other organisations are actually doing. So, why do people listen to Dana White? Probably because we are all attracted to stereotypes and conflicts to some degree. Dana White is an aerobics instructor who wouldn't know a good fighter from his own a-hole. Stop listening to him and check out what Joe Rogan has to say about fighters. He seems much more level headed, fair in his evaluations, and knowledgeable on fighters and their strengths and weaknesses.
So what happens when Fedor say comes back and defeats Werdum or Overeem???
and I am willing to bet he will.
im willing to bet my life that he doesnt...Ill wait with a noose...Prolly be here for a while...
Definitely not Overeem and he knows it.
The more i hear Dana White talk the more I like Scott Coker and Strikeforce.
Fedor may not be the top HW in the world but he has more class and integrity than Dana White could ever dream of having.
I have always thought Dana was a douche and hated the over the top shit talking they make the fighters do before fights. What else is new?
I have no idea why Dana White does not want to sign Fedor, in fact this would be a great time to sign him after a lost, why i hear people ask? well it's because Fedor might want to move away from an organization that he lost in. He (Fedor) might want to go somewhere different to clear his head. This is not a new thing a lot of fighters will move from one organization to another just to be away from the fighter he lost to I guess it might be a familiarity thing but it makes sense. Walking around the same locker room bumping into the fighter that bested you might be a hard thing to do.
Now for the UFC i have read a lot of knocker of Fedor celebrate his lost. Well I tell you what Fedor being a competitor, champion, legend Do people really think that he wont come back better than before?? the UFC might be witnessing the re emergence of the "Last Emperor". I personally would love Fedor fight in the UFC it's one of the few fight organization he has not fought in.
Finally to Fedor's next opponent I sure hope you have signed all that insurance....
Dana White is a clown
dana needs to get his head out of his ass
This is pure class. Dana has such a Fedor chip on his shoulder. He contradicts himself so much with his Fedor comments. He says Fedor wont fight in UFC but Toney will. He must think we are all so stupid. Obviously some are as they fall for his BS all the time, but he really made a prat of himself this time.
Someone made a suggestion in another article that the Fertillas appoint a manager purely to get Dana to shut his mouth when he opens it. Seems to be a very good idea.
How are you comparing Toney to Fedor? Like Toney is going to have anywhere near the huge contract that Fedor would have recieved.
They do not consider things like that. They just get emotional and type mindlessly. Kimbo, Toney, and fighters alike were paid accordingly I am sure, whereas Dana and Fedor will probably have a difficult time agreeing on Fedor's worth following his loss to an arguably #10 ranked opponent. Dana may still be willing to sign him, but not for the amount of money he was previously prepared to offer. Its obvious that Fedor's stock is falling and he has M-1 to thank for that.
Ya... people are probably getting the wrong idea and think I'm hating on Fedor lately because I'm not over glorifying him... but I actually like Fedor.
I hate his management though. They are ruining his legacy. At least it's obvious now to anyone who opens their eyes and looks at what has been happening over the last few years.
He could have really solidified himself as an undisputed P4P... but instead they put him in matches w/ nothing to gain, which made his status questionable, and now he ended up losing to someone far lower ranked, instead of an actual P4P contender.
Please someone give the medicine for Dana, he´s loosing his mind...
Dana leaves in the dana world, with the biggest fights in the worls like buenttelo, kimbo, roy...
Fedor is the best pound for pound in MMA!!!
Or because he lost just 1 time Fedor became a bad figther...
Anderson Silva lost 4 times
GSP lost 2 times
Lesnar lost 1 time (in 5 fights)
Please Dana go to wikipedia and search for Fedor. You will be surprise wich you will see...
Please sorry my english, I´m a brasilian.
fedor would get destroyed against ufc's top 5 or 6 guys. there is a reason we wouldn't come fight the best. now we all know why.
Jesus, I shouldn't bother replying to someone as knowlegable as you but, Fedor has beaten almost all ufc hw champs of the modern era : Arlovski. sylvia, coleman, randleman, nog etc. the only ones he hasnt fought are the current no1 contenders(and coture), why? because he's not in the ufc. So obviously he aint scared of the fighters its just a contract thing.btw im not a Fedor super fan, but give respect where its due.
In SF only Overeem got more fights than top 4 UFC fighters Lesnar,Carwin,Cain ,JDS
Some fight fans are so fickle, apparently one loss and you're old news eh? a fight is a fight, sh*t happens, one wrong move and its over its happened to the best of em. I wouldn't call Dana a true fan cause no one would publicly talk smack about great fighters when they themselves don't fight , what a joke. I'm sure Fedor will redeem himself, I doubt Dana will.
No real fan would publically talk smack about great fighters? How many people on this site HAVENT talked smack publically about 1 fighter or another?
Ofcourse we all talk smack about fighters but were not the public face/voice of the biggest mma organization in the world. Who cares what we say, we dont have radio interviews and cameras in our faces when we speak.
I agree with "Who cares what we say"... but why do you care so much about the fighters Dana does not like?
i'd be pleased too if a guy that had been ****in me around for years was finally taken off his high horse, he made no bones about it 'ive been trying to get this guy for years and now i dont have too'
menn with this comment i dont think fedor ever gonna fight in the ufc, dana white talks to much shit.... after trying to get fedor now he is push him from getting in the ufc again.. wtf was this egg head thinking ? becaus fedor lost in strikeforce ? and not in the ufc? so dana could prove his point to the world ? you ****ing MINI-ME... keep talkin... FAG!!
I just thought it was lame when Dana tweeted that smilie face after fedors loss. And now acting as if fedors irrellavant, and all his trash talk is now justified. Its just a bunch of bs. I dont stay up worrying about who dana dislikes lol, its pretty much everyone not signed to ufc.
Fedor was great and legend ,but his ring rust and prime time finally has come and no one last forever. Why is Danna wanna sign the guy on the way going down on the road like that .Werdum with confident to go Russia for a rematch
Fedor vs Werdum II
Fedor vs Overeem
Who is going to win ?
Fedor was great and legend ,but his prime time finally has come and no one last forever. Why is Danna wanna sign the guy on the way going down on the road like that .Hes just another fighter like Chuck
Werdum with confident to go Russia for a rematch

Fedor vs Overeem
Who is going to win ?
Welcome to Business 101 with Dana White.
Dana says fedor hasn't fought anyone? Uhh, Cro cop...uhh, Nog? Nobodies, dana? they are both in your ****ing UFC! And he beat them! If I were either one of those dudes and I heard this, I'd leg kick dana to the concrete or arm bar him in front of his wife.
id love to meet dana, be all goody goody smiley smiley with him and OPEN HAND slap his ****ing face, probably KOing him in the process.
Chill out guys, most of his talk is just business negotiation... And he never said he wouldnt join the UFC, he said that he wouldnt be brought in the UFC to fight the top contenders (at least right away).
I understand his vernacular isnt the best, his antics are "unique" for sure and his the kind of person that you "love or hate", but thats the way he is really. He talks ****, he swares, he presents himself as he really his (not everyone in the world can do that) - not saying thats good or bad, just saying the man his genuine at least...
That said you must understand his perspective on things: he was prepared to give a LOT (I mean really a lot!) of money to bring Fedor to the UFC so he could prove to everyone what he thought was true. Now he did that for free. Its no surprise his happy about it...
Personally, im still hopping to see Fedor on the UFC and im sure Dana would get him if the opportunity arise, just like he did with Kimbo, a fighter he bad mouthed a lot! This talk is part of the negotiation, basically his saying that if Fedor joins, it wont be a millionaire offer like it was before...
PS - people "gloat" everyday, we see that here in a little forum and we see that in real life every single day. He who never gloated can throw the first stone :D
Fedor doesn't want money. He wants respect and equal treatment. Fedor is rich. Dana is tried to "buy" him like Microsoft buys up gaming companies to make Xbox exclusives. The ones who accept the purchase, sell out, according to fans.
If Fedor was a new guy and didn't have morals and values and had a record of say, 7-0, he may have been bought.
Fedor will never go to the UFC as long as Dana is President. You wouldn't want to go work at KFC or some place if you already knew going in your boss is a scumbag.
Well, too bad for Fedor and for us fans then, I would really like to see him face the top LHW of UFC, specially know the interim tittle will be up for grabs...
Fedor will retire and not face the top contenders of the ufc
