Zuffa has over-saturated the market and they've over stretched their talent to put on all of these watered down cards. The original card was shit outside of the Henderson fight.

Additionally, it wasn't "eight days notice" like Dana keeps saying. It was two or three. Fighters don't train that much during the last week before the event. They also have to travel and do all of the fight week media. What kind of "legitimate sport" pulls that shit on a world champion? They should have cancelled the card the second that they heard Henderson was out.


I guarantee you that this won't be the last time that something like this happens over the next couple of years with all of the bullshit subpar cards that Zuffa has scheduled.



Welcome to the world of promoting Dana. Fighters get injured, fighters pull out and events have to be adjusted or in extreme circumstances cancelled.

Classy response from Jackson touching on a few of Dana's shortcomings.

50-50. Alot of exciting fights, alot of boring fights. Some questionable business decisions but then some great career guidance. Its not really clear cut at the moment.

dana shouldn't comment when he is angry, he looks like a wanker when he does.
i find it hard to understand why people are critisizing jones and jackson.
they made the right decision.
yes you may of missed out on an event but so what you selfish prick!
if they had of fought and jones lost, then everyone would be having a go at jones and jackson for taking the fight on such short notice.
if someone was bad-mouthing me i wouldn't give them the satisfaction of the fight they wish for.

chael has everything going for him.
chael doesn't deserve a title shot yet.
chael makes mma look and sound like pro wrestling, embarrassing.
chael knew the fight wouldn't be accepted anyway.

For me it's not the Pro-Wrestler background the problem...

It's the attitude, he has a WWE attitude....I just can't stand it.

DW has the exact same ****in attitude and I can't stand him too !

A lot of confirmation bias in the brains of those who say yes.

As someone who tends to agree with Dana more often than not (as opposed to someone who hates everything he says and does, Zuffa is the devil, etc...) he is 100% wrong here and in no way is Jones at fault.

Condit has an absolutely ridiculous win rate % (by non-decision) and yet after beating Diaz (soundly) he's Carlos Rundit? This is sheer unfiltered stupidity.

So Gregg Jackson is the president/director/controller of the UFC, Strikeforce, and Bellator now?
