It's about time somebody stepped up and hit Dana with some truth nuggets. Props to you, Brian and thanks for posting.

I have now read what he said. and by Dana's BS I mean his avoidance of the question about the lawsuit

I just wish Brian would have stuck up for himself more.... he says a lot in his article after the fact that I wish he would said to Dana in person, when he had the chance in front of everybody

everyone is scared to argue with Dana because they can't hold a strong frame in an argument.

just look how helwani folded in that argument with Dana about fedor being p4p.

but yeah Brian not being welcomed back ever again is bullshit

As for your question--it was a fine line because I did stand up (literally) and tell Dana White he was being disrespectful but eventually I either had to sit down or leave. I followed up with another question later on in the presser about Ben Askren.

I asked some pivotal questions but by no means did I want to hijack the press event from Conor, Rory, Robbie or Jose Aldo. If the financial numbers ever come out, the industry will be revolutionized and that's real change.

MMADK did this video with me a few days ago and I go a little more in-depth. Got asked some hard questions, too:



Book sales spiked due to many people talking about me. This is why Dana avoided tagging me on Twitter or mentioning my name. Can't believe he tried to defend himself by posting easily-proved lies. I can't imagine the executives at Reebok or FoxSports are too proud of who they're in business with now.

This would be a great way for promotions to troll each other. Reward journalists who ask the other guy tough questions. In this case Bellator would give this guy all kinds of access, special stories, etc.

The fireworks would be hilarious to watch.

No ethical reporter would go to bat for one side. Same issues like horrible contracts and drug testing are just as important to address in Bellator.

However, obviously, Zuffa enjoys watching certain reporters show either indifference or lash out at competing promotions depending on the situation.

Reporters aren't ethical in the first place. Zuffa could use the same tactics on Viacom.

Thanks, guys. Much better just knowing people heard the truth instead of someone else's version alone.
