    Adolf, with Dana and Kimbo it's simple, I just need to dig up his own words. Difference now is Elite had him while he was undefeated and the UFC is all over a guy who has lost 2 strait; 1 in TUF and one to a guy "who wasn't good enough for the UFC; who couldn't even win TUF" - Dana's words (paraphrasing)

    You always liked him, so that's fine. And I understand the ratings angle from the UFC. But besides the obvious hypocrisy Dana, too much of this takes away from the sport. If he wins a reality show where he got a 2nd shot because of ratings. Legit sports like the UFC can't just favor fan favorites. (this is them going the WWF route)[/quote]

    If there was no Vince McMahon the promotor/showman there would be no Dana White the promotor/showman. most of what he does copies VM, which is ok now for the newer fans hes bringing in but for hardcore fans like us, its lame.

    I dont mind that hes using KImbo but if he got beat then let him go or make him earn his wayonto the show like other seasons did.

    I can't ever win with you Claudale. How about a 46 year old Randy Couture fighting for the belt. Or how about when he returned from retirement after 2 consecutive knockout defeats and won the heavyweight belt? Mr Dana White provides opportunities to make dreams happen. Why do you hate that? Kimbo Slice is a very important piece of the growth of MMA and you hate it. It is a true success story of rags to riches. It is an example of hard work and determination. I hate that because he isn't cut from the same cloth as some of your favorites, (white, tattoos, bald head, goatee, tap out generation) you won't give him a chance. He is the epitome of the struggle Claudale, please stop ignoring this. I'm beginning to wonder what specific physical characteristic about Kimbo you don't like, that makes you so biased against him. Please tell me you aren't-never mind ill keep it to myself for now

    I don't want to say it Pimach. I like all of you guys here on this site, but one thing I don't do is discriminate against a person because of their color. I'm hoping Claudale isn't guilty of doing that exact thing. With my back ground, this type of thing hits home and is very painful. I was on the east side of the wall. I've seen many atrocities and I dispise that type of behavior. Claudale say it aint so

    I hear you OBC, I too come from the other side of a wall and dont tolerate that behavior, I too have had some issues with some of the things said on here before, i aint pointing no fingers but I get the feeling that japanese and/or asian fighters are not well liked up by someone or some people up in here based upon their nationality.

    I will give Claudale the benefit of the doubt, and wait for his response. I'm documented that I hire minorities and am surrounded by them as friends and even family.

    Coming from the guy who quoted Hitler today in a positive way.

    Adolf -

    I'm talking about Dana. I was defending Slice when Dana ripped on him so bad, remember?

    Dana sort of fits that description - white, bald, tap out t-shirt and, according to you, a fighter. As you recall, I don't like him.

    Adolf, you and I said BJ and Uriah could not beat Kimbo when Dana said it, while others here disagreed (VAK and I think PJ too)

    Randy has won the championship several times and he was in the NCAA finals 2x and wrestled at the national level for years.

    Plus, Randy was the UFC champ at a younger age than Slice is now.

    No one thinks Slice will be champion and I'm just bringing up Dana's words for Dana's actions, never said Slice shouldn't do this show and make money on his popularity.
