READY, FUCKERS?!?: Dana White’s UFC 90 Vid-Blog, Pt. 1

As we see in the latest installment of his video blog, Dana White was still in England yesterday, presiding over the London tryouts of The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K. 175 limey scrappers showed up (or “over 200,” depending on when you ask Dana), up from about 30 the last time they held open auditions there. This is actually the first TUF tryout footage I’ve ever seen, and it was an interesting behind-the-scenes look — particularly for Dana’s speech before the grappling portion, in which he told the guys that there’s no shame in tapping, but “no heel-hooks, no slams, no crazy shit.” It’s a safe, nurturing environment, in other words. Also, Michael Bisping stops by to show Dana his grody ear.

Related: MMA Weekly reports that the weight-classes featured on TUF 9 will actually be lightweights (again) and welterweights, not middleweights and welterweights as previously announced; no reason for the change has been given yet.

Dana White is a greedy corporate wolf in a regular joe's clothing. He pretends to be the common man by swearing and talking like a tough guy! We should not buy all of his B.S.!

The point is he doesn't care that much for most of the fighters (who are human beings) and he treats many of them like pieces of meat. Dana wants to be the only MMA show out there, so he can call all of the shots. Dana wants to be the NBA or NFL of MMA.

On one side of his mouth, you hear Dana White (and Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg for that matter) talking about MMA and the spirit of Martial Arts and the class of the Artists etc, and on the other side you hear the filth that comes out of Dana White's mouth! I understand that Dana is trying to appeal to some of the "Joe Six-packs" who relate to this. In the meantime, Dana believes his own B.S. and he acts like he's some infallible, holier-than-thou jerk.

If Dana does want to be the NBA of MMA and if he did care about all of the fighters, then he would at least provide his fighters with year round health benefits. There are many other things that he would do for the fighters if he cared about them and that's one of the reasons why so many people have a problem with Dana.

Wtf Dana I wanted to hear the rest of what Bisping was going on about. I guess you're a busy guy but people really don't like being cut off.

Yo guys, for those of you who complain about how Dana talks to people, lets just put it in perspective here ok. He didn't go out into the street and start calling people fuckers left and right, those guys are in HIS fucking place, under his FUCKING rules, and trying to get a FUCKING job from that man who is the FUCKING boss..................if you don't grasp that then......you are FUCKED!
I'm pretty sure a bunch of grown men who hit each other for a living don't give a FUCK what they are called as long as you pay em.

R.I.P. UFC 11/12/93 – 10/18/08

The UFC which started out as “no holds barred” during UFC 89 when dodging your opponent, fighting for the scorecard, and planning to let the judges determine the fight became accepted practice by the UFC.

After winning the main event of UFC 89 by decision, Michael Bisbing made the following comment about his win in the event’s featured fight:

“It was a tough fight,” said Bisping. “That was the whole gameplan, take my time, stick and move, and get a unanimous decision.”

The UFC supports this direction in the sport and will make Bisbing a coach in the next The Ultimate Fighter series. Bisbing should have confidence in the judges’ scorecard considering the judges handed him his win in UFC 75 over Matt Hamill but this type of fighting is no more entertaining than watching boxing.

All good things end. So long UFC!

Um, didn't Wesley Murch already get a shot on the Ultimate Fighter? Wasn't he cut in the first round of the current season?

Dana says in the video they have too many guys who should be at 155 trying out. probably better talent so thats why they switched

The general public fucking needs to fucking inform DW that he fucking needs to watch his fucking potty mouth. his fucking tough fucking guy act is getting fucking played the fuck out.....fuckers.

"Oh, WAIT! No kneebars either..."

That made me laugh. Also they way Dana is just so informal with how he goes about all this. How many times did he call them "fuckers" you think that someone would get offended. If some British dude came over here and started calling everyone "fuckers" I'd wanna break his face.

Abdul Mohammad Randy Couture Jr hahah can't believe he got to put that down

Meh, most people on TUF end up dropping a weight class (or atleast need to drop a class) after the show. It seems tough to cut weight on short notice for the show.

Good thing they moved away from middleweights - it wouldn't have looked good if Bisping happened to end up coaching a guy in his weight class that could beat him.
