Default Did Scott sellout?

Did Coker sellout? Him and his peers had a legit chance of becoming the biggest rival to the UFC and a legit one at that. I think they could have equalled them with the right marketing and match making.

Did Scott sellout instead or just simply sell?

Scott apparently tried to buy SF on his own. This is what iv read on various websites. It appears he was completely against the sale of SF. But the other majority stake holders in SF wanted to concentrate on other parts of the business namely hockey and didn't seem to care much for MMA. Looks to me like his hand was forced.

If it is true I apologize for voting yes. I was really gutted when I saw he sold. SF was the anti UFC IMHO and the thought of Dana being more powerful is shite.

bye bye to any big ufc purses, they'll be stuck with under 500k a fight while the promotion makes 100 x that.
