Dana White is so predictable. Before you ask him a question, ask yourself which of these options will make Dana more money personally 🤣

"Me and everybody are always in a good place here"...such a liar and revisionist! What about the lawsuits? What about the insults between Dana and many fighters...over and over? Even though they are not my favorite, you don't see the same garbage and shady business tactics from Bellator MMA or most other MMA organizations. The only company as bad as the UFC as far as how they treat employees is BKFC. It's too bad these men think there is nothing more important than money...this is a sickness.

There is absolutely ZERO reason for Khabib to fight Conor after he destroyed him the first time. Literally dominated him the entire fight and made him tap. I’d like to see him go up to welter weight and compete for that title

If Mcgregor can make more money fighting Pacquiao he should absolutely do it without question. Dana thinking Conor should stick with UFC is not surprising, he cares about his bottle line not the fighters.

If division is stacked with tough guys, why do Conor vs Khabib? Let the tough guys battle it out and stop fueling then Mcgregor hype train. Is he good yes, are there styles that can give him problems of course . He will never beat Khabib. Let Oliveira fight Gaethje or winner of Hooker and Chandler and set up vacant belt fight in summer. Look at Tony’s career lost because of all the Mcgregor politics and injuries. This guy takes too much time off and runs from every title defense. We need real champs that defend thrones. These title reigns with absent Champs ruin divisions. Look at HW, Francis should have fought for belt over a year ago but here we are.

Have to give it to Dana man I don't think the UFC would have stayed aloat and survived them early days when they were in heavy debt makin no money. He stayed focused on wat he believed changed the rules and structure and when he had to be ruthless he was I don't think anyone could have done the job he's done the way he's done it. The man's a pure inspiration happy 20th anniversary man

Get it in your heads. Jon Jones can NEVER be the GOAT. Never. Tested positive more times than anyone else. Most stripped champion ever. Illegal strikes. Even when he wins it looks like he loses. Close fights - Pillow hands these days. Most of his career beat up Middleweights and calls out guys from lower weight classes. take your pick. and thats NOT mentioning anything outside the Octagon.

Why should Poirier Vs Clownor fight for the title??? Thiss is what MMA Media guys and some fighters don't understand Dana is right. UFC will make big money\ for the title or not. He could make more more big money if Clownor wins and then fights for the title We all know Clownor never defends his belt

💯They talk about Dana could of retired years ago and go chill on a huge boat and Dana says UFC is the biggest sport in sports and 2020 was a great year but why are UFC fighters always asking for better pay💰 and if they ask Dana for better pay Dana tells them “ I always tell fighters you don’t have to fight if you don’t want” lol. Dana how about 2021 we start of bye paying fighters better they train hard and take kicks knees punches chokes and they only take over 100 grand a fight if that if they loose they take half a pay lol wow. Some get paid like 30,000 a fight lol wow while Dana could of retired years ago he’s the only promoter in the UFC so he’s making all the cash. That’s crazy
