Default Is Greg Jackson killing the sport?

A string of underwhelming main events, boring tap and dash game plans and now refusing fights...

Is the heat Greg been getting from fans and know Dana himself warranted?

What are the plus points that Greg brings to MMA?

No. The amount of exciting fights involving Jackson fighters far outweighs the boring ones.

To some extent i believe so but then its also up to the fighter if he wants to make it a boring LnP/hit n run or if he wants to fight smart but still exciting or just go balls to the walls ape shit

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if what Dana said about him today was completely untrue. It wound't be the first time. Shogun vs. Glover comes to mind.

"I would rather retire than fight Glover Teixeira" - Shogun Rua (Played by Dana White)

JJ isn't the one who got injured and couldn't fight. CC outlanded Diaz, and Nick Diaz had no answer.. Gray Maynard couldn't fight is fight o boo ****ing hoo.

CC, Cerrone, Swanson, Sanchez, Brandao, Kennedy, and JJ.. Only an idiot could thing such a thing (not calling you an idiot).

Yeah, along with what Rob said re Shogun I tend to agree that Dana is shooting him mouth off as usual

But Jackson has his detractors, just thought Id gauge opinion
