    I'm surprised they didn't manage to make Dana number 1 on the list

    But seriously, Costa, Yvel, and Kyle are your top 3.

The white supremacist thing keeps Costa at 1 for me though, and what Ricco did with his girl and the car keeps him as the front runner for #2. Its a little like arguing who the greatest baseball player of all time is. Strong cases can be made for a handful of people.
    I see what youre saying about Costa, but to play devils advocate for a second, is the swastika tat worse than having a brown pride tat across your chest?

    You bring up a fair point, but IMO, yes, it is worse. The swastika, and nazism in general, are about much more than just "white pride." It is a symbol that represents killing of others who are not of your race (or religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, etc.) This representation isn't only abstract, of course, either, as the nazis actually did exterminate people on a large scale. Now, that isn't to say having a "brown pride" tat on your chest would be a classy, or that I would find it appealing, it just wouldn't hold the same power as the swastika does. Just my two cents. I do find it amusing though, that Mr. Costa tapped out to this man in his last fight. That must have really irked him.

    He should either be #1, or not on the list. People tend to hate him or love him. I don't see how he is #2.

    Lee Murray is another one that should be on this list.

    Not really a list that can be taken serious, quite obviously.

    They talk about things like Lesnar's steroid arrest, but don't mention all charges were dropped when the alleged steroids were tested and found to be legal supplements. And Dana has his faults, we all have gripes with how he does his job, but he's still one of the main people responsible for the success of MMA in North-America and for sites like cage-potato.com even existing.

    fair enough, but im not sure I would throw him on a "most despicable" list, maybe a most stupid would be fair. if anything maybe Terry Trebilecock should take his place because he is the guy who was allowing him to showcase himself and his tats in KOTC

    Its funny that most guys on the list have assaulted people or done other illegal things and then they have dana on their for doing things that arent even true. Arlovski left on good terms just got offered more money from Affliction, and Randy resigned on his own. The fedor contract negotiations are up for debate as both sides can be blamed. Either way just a lot of bias towards dana instead of reporting facts like they did with the others on the list.

    Brown Pride has positive connatations to me with no hate implied
    Swatiska or White Pride would have racists connatations, while something like "Polish Pride" would not.
