What do Dana White and the Fertittas have to do with Pride?
What do Gay Pride and transformers have to do with Dana White and the Fertittas? They should all use the same bathroom IMO.
One could even say he is the quintessential Inconsequential.
I think the educating Joe does in regards to the ground game is his biggest influence. He manages to explain it to the layman without sounding completely monotonous, which is extremely valuable to new fans.
Jesus... Without a show like Pride and the UFC, MMA would be NOWHERE.
MMA would be around, but it'd be absolutely minor had we not had those big organisations to bring it to the masses.
It was better before it went mainstream anyways
Again, what does Dana have to do with Pride?
And what do you think was happening around UFC 29 and 30?
I think the bigger issue here is your random and nonsensical capitalization.
The OP is bent out of shape over someone questioning Fedor's greatness?
Dana is the biggest star the UFC ever created and this is why they are in a fucking slump right now. He doesn't seem to know how to promote anyone as effectively as he knows how to promote himself and without the Fertitas to let him do that, he's like a quarterback that doesn't know how to pass and only knows how to run the ball himself.. Dana seemed like he was earnest in the beginning, but now? No f'n way. He's even more about Dana than Joe is about Joe.
You would have been right... in 2009. Conor is the biggest star the UFC has ever created.
Would the UFC have EVER let Rousey, GSP or Brock do a cross-over fight with a Boxer under THEIR rules? VERY doubtful.
Ask yourself why they're letting Conor do it. They have no choice, that's why.
GO AND PLAY WITH THE TRAFFIC.
Can't read whole thread right now. You can't really hate Joe. He's The Ultimate Frat Boy -- meaning, of all the dudes in the world who would be in a frat, and not leave because of the dumbness of the other frat idiots (thinking, because benevolent, and just enough not-smarter than them to feel he could outlast their stupidity and CHANGE them that he would stay "inside"), he is about as good as it gets.
He's like 125-138 IQ (I can't believe he's over 140 with how much social acceptance influences his actions), and clearly genuinely well-intentioned (unlike 95% of fuckfaces who would be in a frat), genuinely a truth seeker (unlike 80-95% of frat/mediocre people, period), and he continues to be that as his fame grows.
He is changing all those dumb fucks, against their will, with his siren call of genuine seeking, limited as it may be by his basic frat-guy-core-mentality.
Inside, on the bottom line, I want him dead.
But, among those who should be dead, he is a leader among them who has some power to shift them away from the worst dregs of their stupidity's thirst.
Long live Joe Hogan.
I'm somewhat serious. The fandom of "MMA" is mostly shitbags -- far more than practitioners, among whom shitbags mostly get weeded out, as all practitioners know -- who are the lowest of the low in society (bloodthirsty, not remotely critical-thinking idiots). Many of them are led to being better than themselves by Rogan being in the position he's in.
In a way, as big as the sport is now, and as inevitable as that likely was based on the content of the sport itself and human nature, that is practically an argument for the existence of a benevolent God.
Conor made a star out of Conor McGregor whereas Dana, via the UFC made a star out of Dana White.
Got no beef but I find him more annoying than anything now.
they arent letting conor do anything. it is not a done deal until it is signed on the dotted line.until then it is all talk
Never been a fan.
I don't find him funny as a comedian, insightful as a commentator or entertaining as a podcaster or tv host.
Basically anything he's done. Going back to NewsRadio.
liked him in Newsradio. He does an excellent job of playing the meathead role.
He seems like he's trying to better himself...yeah he has a bit of an ego but c'mon, if any one of us had managed to roll the dice as well as he has then we'd have one too.
Some people run on rhetoric. But they hit a ceiling with it and then hyperbolic thoughts start sprawling around like the GREATEST OCTOPUS ASSASSIN THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN trying to kill our families with squirted toxic inky goop while fluttering around like a hideous embarrassed muscle upside down and confused.
Just out of curiosity, how the fuck don't you include Stipe in that list?
He deserves it
UFC must have deleted him for my memory
