    "Then CBS throws this guy who fights at people’s barbecues on the main event" - lol.

    Of course, Dana used the guy he fought on his main card. Just happened to pay him way less and that guy risked losing his job for something like $3g and was cut by the UFC after one fight anyways.

    Ultimately I knew Dana would take cheap shots at Seth to put down Kimbo even further - which is not right. As I recall, he barely lost to big Brad Imes and really had a shot of winning that show. He didn't need to belittle Seth to put down Kimbo and some of the UFC's heavyweight champsions have been dropped quickly in fights too (Couture, Sylvia, Arlovski)

    Kind of ironic that Dana is calling others "dirty people"; the UFC has pulled plenty of sneaky moves of their own over the years (different stuff of course).

    And Dana's reaction of shock is not credible because he had a meltdown the last time Kimbo fought and attracted a ton of viewers - he just doesn't like to see fans watching other organizations and fighters have success of any kind in other organizations.

    Since Dana views himself as the guy who invented MMA, he thinks every dime belongs to the Fertittas and him. Always has and always will. Instead of enjoying their success and fortune, they constantly demand more money and more praise.
