    Wow. I had no idea the guy actually went on an interview with the LA Times LOL. What a tool. adios EliteXC. You're done now.

    Serves them right for paying Seth to not take it to the ground.

    LMAO - I think the whole thing exposed EliteXC for what it really was, a show rather than a sport.

    Hopefully next time Dana will say what he really thinks. LoL

    "and that rapper, whatever his name is..."

    LoL

    I agree that EliteXC is a carnival and should go out of business. I don't think they really tried to 'fix' the fight by flat out telling Seth, "keep it standing." But I do think they said "there's a bonus for you if you knock him out," which is true, but also true for UFC events. Fighters get paid extra for big knockouts. Everyone knows fans pay to see sluggers and big KOs. It's a fact.

    Regardless, Dana needs to be careful he doesn't fall off his self-righteous soapbox b/c while he's complaining about EliteXC being all about the money, he's running The Ultimate Fighter TV show, which is basically a sideshow money-making machine that gives a bunch of aggressive, immature kids a house full of booze and tells them to go nuts so they can catch it on film.

    I agree. I get a real kick out of it.

    Plus its given light to some very top notch fighters. Forrest Griffin, Bisping, BJ Penn and lots more. Not to say they wouldn't have risen to the top without the help of TUF, but its neat to watch the process

    Did you see that CSI show or variant of it with Forrest on it yesterday? He was killed in the show! I couldn't believe it, because I expected him to start laughing at any moment when he was saying all that serious stuff. Forrest is the man.

    No I didn't, but that'd have been sweet to see Forrest in a show like that. I agree, he's a pretty darn cool dude.

    I heard Forrest saying he was going to be on the show tired of CSI though.

    Not all fans pay for sluggers and big KO's I like to watch all aspects of MMA in a fight. Dana White does not run TUF as a matter of fact he was against the whole TUF show in the beginning I forgot who it was that forced it to happen. He hates reality shows.

    What? Dana White controls that show. It was the UFC, with Dana White as the president, that convinced Spike to let it happen by agreeing to pay all production cost.

    Yeah =Travis= is right. Dana runs TUF. It was/is a huge money maker for the UFC and was more publicity than the UFC had ever gotten before

    I think they told him to keep it standing. Rewording it later to sound better.
    I agree with the rest, Dana will never be accused of biting his tongue.

    Dana White is a figure head he does not make all the decisions in the UFC. I've watched the interview were he specifically says he was against the whole idea and hated it. I'm pretty sure he said the fertitties (the ones supplying all the money, the ones really in control) were the ones who insisted on it.

    They leave Dana White as the figure head so that all the bad reputation back lashes on him, and anything good also gets rewarded to him.

    Gary Shaw just did an interview were he said specifically that there was nothing wrong with encouraging a fighter to keep it standing.

    Wow real stupid. I guess you can argue that point if you want to. So he should say Seth don't try any of those submissions, oh yeah I'd rather you not kick also. lol

    Yea thats one of the reasons dana white was so pissed he was like "Thats ****ing illegal you moron"

    Thats also why he went into the whole betting thing. People bet on that fight and probably thought Seth could win easily if he took it to the ground. Anyways all the stuff Dana said he nailed it.
