Pretty sweet move IMO, puts us closer to an universal fighting league.

That does sound good. I just hope and pray it doesn't get tainted like Pro Boxing aka Don King Productions has. I can't stand pro boxing any more.

Dana White would never let it get tainted. He is full on beat the crud out of peeps for money. Best man gets rich. Low man gets lost. Look at Anderson Silva's last match. He was pissed with show boating and not really getting in there and tearing stuff up. Dana wants the best there is to fight the best. And he always willing to give someone a shot. I like this.

Yeah Dana is the most blunt and honest manager I've ever seen. Even when he refuses to comment on something, it's insanely obvious what he's thinking. I need a boss like him

Now I'll be searching to see who is coming over. Cool news!


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

Yeah I like Dana White and I believe as long as he stays in control that he won't let Vegas money sway him/the sport....at least I hope not. But the bigger the sport comes, the bigger the target it will be for such to happen. I fear that he may get bought out one day and then the taint-proofness may be up in the air.

Sorry just the skeptic in me. But I am glad it's happening so far.

I think this is terrible for MMA personally. It takes away another organization for fighters to fight in and I hate ZUFFA so much. They are creating a monopoly over MMA and in my opinion UFC has become boring by being watered down with lay and pray fighters. I realize the fighters in UFC are probably better but I definitely enjoyed watching Strikeforce cards better. I like finishes and UFC hardly has that anymore. I mean I enjoy a good grappling match but look at some of their champs like GSP and Frankie Edgar. These guys are good but boring as hell whereas the same weight class champs in Strikeforce would be Nick Diaz and Gilbert Melendez who both extremely exciting fighters. So in closing I think this move sucks but I can't wait for Overeem to come in and destroy all those UFC heavyweights.

Whoever cannot take care of themselves without that law is both.

'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

I have always preferred WEC. Felt like it was more exciting. And the lights is where it's at. 155 er's can beat the shat out of each other all day long. Uriah Fabur (sp?) and such.
