Thread: Why Is Dana White F@#%ing With Chuck?

    Default Why Is Dana White F@#%ing With Chuck?

    http://thegarv.com/ufc/why-is-dana-w...uck/#more-9868

    Dana White is throwing his weight around again. In this MMAWeekly interview, he lends an almost sympathetic comment about the difficulty Chuck is faced with when deciding whether or not to retire:

    ?Chuck?s in a very weird political situation right now with a lot of different people. Chuck is such a good guy and such a loyal friend and an amazing person that he doesn?t say no to anybody,? White explained. ?I don?t know all the ins and outs of it, but I?m sure enough people around him still need to make some money.?

    White?s concluding statement is yet another transparent shot at Liddell?s loyal friend and longtime trainer, John Hackleman of ?The Pit? fight team, although this revised version is much more politically correct than his previous statements, which were of the same prototypical and unprofessional vein we?ve come to expect on occasion from White.

    Hmmmmm. I wonder why Chuck is in this ?weird political situation right now with a lot of different people?? Dana continues:

    ?Chuck?s all set. He doesn?t need to make any more money. Chuck?s made a lot of money. He?s become very famous and he?s got lots of stuff going on. He?ll always be, as long as I?m alive, he?ll do just fine.?

    Kudos to Mr. White for making things easier for Chuck. First lamenting about how Chuck?s in a very difficult political position on his retirement, and then, as the president and voice of the UFC, stating that Chuck ?doesn?t need any money? and ?is still retired?.

    Once, I eagerly opened the refrigerator to satisfy my heroin-like craving for blueberry yogurt, and I was deeply apalled and offended that the yogurt had spoiled into a curdy mess- and no one had taken care of it. ?Its so disrespectful when people leave crap like this in here,? I muttered to myself as I placed the spent yogurt back into the refrigerator.

    Through all of this media attention, through all of the verbal volleying between White and Hackleman about the status of Chuck?s retirement, both sounding as genuinely distraught as Luke Skywalker when his uncle prevented his trip to Tosche station to score some power converters? we?ve heard no definitive answer from The Iceman himself.

    Could we stretch the boundaries of humanity and really think outside the box long enough to actually let the man speak for himself? I would say Chuck has at least earned that one simple right. I don?t need to launch into his impressive record, or cite all of his amazing knockouts over accomplished fighters- any MMA fan knows Chuck Liddell, and what he?s done for the UFC and MMA. I won?t even lend my opinion on whether or not he should retire, because there is one man, and one man only, who should be making that decision.

    I will patiently await the decision of Chuck Liddell on his fighting future, and respect his path-forward no matter what the choice.

    Did he make these comments again or are these from weeks ago?

    Funny how he tries to come across as looking out for Chuck but he's really just pressuring him into retiring.

    The UFC is so used to one sided contracts - where fighters are locked in as long as they want them to be and where they can dump anyone whenever they feel like it. But he doesn't want to alienate yet another legend and he doesn't want Chuck taking his popularity elsewhere either.

    just went to MMA weekly. Guys an ahole as usual, second time he's announcing Chuck's retirement.

    Funny how he constantly says Chuck doesn't need anymore money when the Fertittas and he fight for every dime out there and they have way more than Chuck has.

    God, is every major MMA reporter have to repeat Dana's opinions as their own?

    White's opinion is based on friendship and not business, but that's what makes his opinion on the subject intriguing.

    "And you guys know, how much fun were the Chuck Liddell fights when he came out?
    It was almost like the Tyson thing. It's like oh man, this is Mike Tyson, he's gonna knock somebody out," reminisced the UFC president. "It was fun. He had his time."


    "Chuck's all set. He doesn't need to make any more money. Chuck's made a lot of money. He's become very famous and he's got lots of stuff going on. He'll always be, as long as I'm alive, he'll do just fine"

    "When a guy starts getting knocked out four or five times in a row... for what? He doesn't need the money"

    There's a big difference between continually taking shots to the head to earn your money, and going after it in the baordroom. Dana has always said Chuck will have a job for life with the UFC

    I would love to see Dana just get drop-kicked by Chuck. That would make my day. I wouldn't want some idiot announcing my retirement when I haven't even officially announced it.

    I have to side with Dana on this one. Chuck needs to see the light and hang it up before he gets killed in the cage. White is trying to be delicate with it, but Chuck is a liability now a days. He's going to get killed in there and his friend doesn't want it to happen. Kudos to Mr. White not accepting any blood money at Chuck's expense.

    If he doesn't want him to fight, he should exercise the lose clause and cut him from his contract. But of course, he can't have it both ways, if he doesn't want him, others will make offers to him.

    Whatever about the job for life comment, who knows how much they would pay and Dana's word isn't something I'd hang my hat on.

    Dana loves wars and people who fight injured and press on hurt. So his concern about Chuck when Chuck says he feels fine is a little questionnable.

    Really? I bet Stephan Bonnar is thanking God for Dana White's word at this point.

    What Bonnar comment?

    I don't need to give you comments Dana has made where he didn't follow through, right?
