Video of official UFC 92 “The Ultimate 2008″ Press conference.
3:10 of the first video. Dana the tool says Nog has fought and beaten every top heavy out there. Hmmm.
lol. not really true but almost.
I know i felt a cold chill as he was sayin that. lol I wish some1 would have shouted Fedor! But at the same time I think Fedor should come to the UFC.
I think the UFC should come to Fedor. I mean come on. You expect the best hvywt in the world to come fight in your organization after being belittled by the guy he would call boss? The UFC should PROVE ITSELF by co-promoting for super fights. Oh thats right, Dana tried that with Chuck. Guess he learned something. If they couldn't get a deal done with Fedor why bash him? We all know the UFC imposes a ridiculous amount of control to its contract fighters. Maybe when the UFC hvywt div gets stronger Dana may grow a pair and send the UFC champ into a co-promoted match with Fedor. Right now the better fighters are all outside of the UFC.
My organization? It's the top organization! Dana did mess up by talkin crap on Fedor after he didn't sign plus he shouldn't have approached Fedor the way they did but with or without Fedor the UFC is still top dogg. He's only the best HW! UFC has every top guy in every other weight class besides the lighter weight classes that WEC has but is owned by UFC. You said the better fighters are outside the UFC? Besides the top HW which is Fedor what other top guys aren't in the UFC? Lets run through them… #1 HW = Fedor, #1 LHW… i don't think there really is one at this point but UFC has the best LHWs, #1 MW Anderson Silva, #1 WW GSP, #1 LW BJ! It's smart business for Dana not to Co-promote with some other organization because why would the top dogg (UFC) need help from any1 else? It would benefit Affliction alot more.
Plus, give Lesnar a couple years and he could beat Fedor. Look what he's done already! lol
Oswald Gobblecock, no disrespect, i am sure you are a very intelligent person. You seriously think in a couple of years Lesner could beat Fedor come on! I do however agree with your previous comments though.
I meant that the best Heavys are outside the UFC. Fedor's toughest opponents TODAY are not in the UFC. I think Lesnar has the ability to possibly beat Fedor if he continues to improve. Time will tell. If you really want to see the best fight the best at hvyt you can't get that from the UFC right now. There is no doubt the UFC is the top dog. The purchase of Pride made it a fact. I agree it is smart business not to co-promote at least in the short term. If we take Dana at his word(lol), this whole mma thing is just starting to make money and get big. Think of the talent pool that has not even been scratched yet. MMA is bigger than the UFC. If the UFC decides it is the only place for the top fighters to compete then so be it. They can try that. The hvywt division is the flagship of combat sports. The reason Affliction is able to promote these shows is because the UFC has failed to secure the best fighters at heavy. If Dana is right and this is just the beginning of big time MMA then there should be plenty of room for an upstart like affliction or dream to operate.
