    I'd pay to see Danus and Tito get it on like they both said they would. Even if it was just boxing. It would have to be bare knuckle though.

    That last media scrum was hard to watch. The mma media is so stupid and annoying. Same questions asked every time. Even in the same interview. And they wonder why he gets upset. Or any fighter doesn't get excited to do media.

    I agree, but, that could be changed by talking to the (admittedly retarded) mma media and asking them to have fun with their questions instead of parroting the same queries to every fighter.

    Telling the media they can’t ask about topics other than the ones that the UFC wants to answer questions about is ridiculous.

    Even more ridiculous is the fact that the (most definitely retarded) mma media obeyed their request without batting an eye.

    Because they have hundreds of times over the years. He specifically said he wasn't talking about The Domestic Violence shit anymore or he'd leave. THE NEXT QUESTION lol. Idiots.

    Not 1 question about the performance centers being built in Mexico and China. Or Kron Gracie. Or an update on Cain and stipe fighting. Nothing about any other fight on the card. They just keep bringing up the Hardy d.v. and 165lb division. Both he has talked about over and over. Enough. Move on and dig up some new questions. You're apart of the media to get content for us fans. We get tired of hearing the same shit as well.

    The media there should have called his bluff and asked about domestic violence as the first question.

    I agree the mma media in general sucks but that doesn’t mean that the UFC gets to control what people ask about. Look how flustered and pissed odd Danus got on TSN when he was getting asked questions about fighter pay that he didn’t want to answer.



    The media needs to realize that the UFC needs them more than they need the UFC. If media networks ignore them PPV buys go down. Ask Dana hard questions and if he walks off don’t cover it. See how quickly he’ll come running back.

    Damn he shit all over Woodley saying he never wants to fight and
    you cant get him to fight.

    Wasn't Woodley the most active champion in title defenses
    just a year ago?

    He just fought and beat the brakes of his European market love child
    Darren Till not long ago. What the fuck does Egg want.

    Conor didn't defend for 2 damn years

    Glad they stood up to him. Controlling the media and threatening to remove
    press credential like they did to Ariel is some bullshit.

    Unlike fighters journalists actually have balls and will stick
    together when you fuck with one of them

    I have no idea wft Dana's problem is with Woodley but he's anything but a promoter when it comes to him.

    Its weird. Really weird.

    Don't wanna derail your thread though so back to Egg
    throwing a tantrum because people want to ask why he put
    an abuse victim on the same card as an abuser and thought
    it was a good idea.

    "Don't make me leave! Don't make me leave!"

    Egg and WME are so delusional.

    No one cares about you mutherfucker. LEAVE.

    Its about the fighters. No one cares if you fucking leave

    Bye Felecia...

    They didn’t stand up to him. None of the “journalists” asked any questions regarding hardy they just bitched about it after.

    I'm speaking about the clip where they kept asking about it and Dana threatened
    to leave. I thought that was kinda standing up to him. Although they did
    stop asking after he threw his tantrum

    The media could put a stop to this shit with a single collective act.

    Just don't cover the event. All it would take is one time them not
    covering the event and make WME/Egg come crawling back and begging
    for coverage.

    He doesn’t like anyone who won’t do exactly what he wants or can’t make him ridiculous amounts of cash. He’ll turn on fighters the second they won’t bow down to him.

    Yep. He's clearly forgotten who needs who

    Also you can tell it really triggered him. My bet is they
    fucked up and they know they fucked up.

    Otherwise he wouldn't be so defensive.

    This was horrible for Greg.

    They just made the guy they are trying to promote and make into
    a UFC star a ton of problems he was trying to get over.

    It was also horrible for Rachel and like Egg said himself she does
    not want to talk about it.

    Yet they handed the fighters they are supposed to promote
    a steaming plate of shit to deal with neither wanted.

    The WME/Egg combination has shown an incredible inability to
    relate to fans and fighters.

    They are great at slashing budgets and manipulating the books to squeeze
    out every dime of profit but they are cannibalizing and destroying the very sport
    business they are in.

    I agree that the UFC fucked up bad but I could care less how it was for Hardy. He beat up a girl and paid her off to not show up in court. In my opinion he’s another koppenhaver waiting to happen and the UFC shouldn’t have signed him.

    Who knows though, maybe he’s cleaned himself up, feels horrible for his acts of violence and is really trying to be a better person by kicking the shit out of other dudes in a cage.

    Yeah I don't care how Hardy feels either. I just found it funny that they
    were so dumb they even made problems for the guy they want to make
    money with and turn into a UFC star.

    How incapable can they be?

    Cause unwanted scrutiny and bad press for the UFC about domestic abuse... Check.

    Cause problems for their fighter that was just abused...Check

    Cause problems for the guy they are trying to make money with...Check

    You'd think Scott Coker and Bellator was making these decisions for them. LOL
