More Dana bitching

Meet the UFC’s New Enemy: ‘Strikefarce’

PHILADELPHIA -- The gloves came off a couple of days early on Thursday when UFC President Dana White took aim at fellow promotion Strikeforce following the UFC 101 news conference. 

Previously White had been respectful toward Strikeforce despite frequently criticizing other shows. This week, though, Strikeforce signed Fedor Emelianenko, the No. 1-ranked heavyweight in the world and one of the few elite fighters whom the UFC has failed to secure. 

“They should have stayed the way they were,” White said of the move, apparently seeing the signing of Fedor as Strikeforce’s attempt to compete with the UFC. 

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has downplayed a UFC-Strikeforce rivalry. Whether he wants to fight with the UFC or not, however, White is swinging. At one point White referred to the promotion as “Strikefarce.” The UFC president also said Thursday that Strikeforce signing Fedor was a major mistake. 

“He’ll put them out of business,” White said. “They have no money. These guys have no money and they have no distribution. Four f---king people watch Showtime.” 

White wouldn’t say specifically what a battle with Strikeforce could include, be it counter-programming or otherwise, but he issued several warnings. 

“We’ll see what happens,” White said. “If they want to fight me, we’re gonna fight. We know how that goes, and we know how it ends.”

Strikeforce Responds to 'Strikefarce' Comment

Strikeforce was welcomed to the promotional battlefield Thursday when UFC President Dana White publicly attacked the rival promotion for the first time following a pre-fight news conference for UFC 101 in Philadelphia. 

White, who has praised the San Jose-based organization’s efforts on numerous occasions, criticized Strikeforce for its decision to sign No. 1-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko after White’s previous negotiations fizzled with the Russian and his management and promotional team M-1 Global. 

Emelianenko will debut under the Strikeforce banner on premium-pay subscription channel Showtime this fall. He is contracted for three fights. 

“He’ll put them out of business,” White said. “They have no money. These guys have no money and they have no distribution. Four f---king people watch Showtime.” 

White also referred to Strikeforce as “Strikefarce.” 

“Of course he’s going to say that. He’s a promoter,” said Coker during a teleconference call Thursday discussing the major signing. “He’s going to go on and say what he’s going to say, but we’ve been in business a long time and I think we know how to operate a business and forged a relationship with Ken (Hershman) and Showtime and M-1. I feel confident that we’re going to have some great big shows with Fedor.” 

Coker, who recently praised White and the UFC for “saving” MMA in North America, had told Sherdog.com on Tuesday that he believed his company’s acquisition of Emelianenko wouldn’t spark hostility between the two outlets. 

White’s comments on Thursday suggested otherwise, though Coker seemed ready for what many believed to be inevitable. 

“Under the current circumstances, is anybody surprised?” asked Coker. “I don’t think so.”

On sports talk radio on friday one of the shows had a guy from yahoo sports that covers MMA and he says that usually Dana White is the bad guy but this time public perseption is that Dana White is the hero and Fedor is the villain. They say Fedor lost points this past week cause of what happend.  What crap.

Good fight tonight, might miss it though.

^^Wow I was thinking of posting these pics, but I figured no one would care. I was wrong. Don't forget Mousasi vs Babalu, should be a great fight.

And funnily enough the two girls you posted there look rather manly. And this right after you've been to the Jamie Foxx penis thread? Hmmm.

    Children, our lives have been gongs striking; clamour and boasting; cries of despair; blows on the nape of the neck in gardens.

Holy crap at Mousasi.

He's the real deal people. Training with Fedor definitely helps, the hip upper body throw sealed the deal. 

Oh and Cyborg beat the shit out of Gina. As expected Gina was overrated just because of her good looks. Cyborg is the female version of Wand, can't wait to see more of both. The fight was exciting but a little sloppy. The real female fighter's are in Japan. Megumi Fuji is the true face of female MMA and not Gina.

Some gifs

See, throws in clinch are awesome

The patented "I just woke up" look

Mousasi also has a black belt in Exorcism

Holy crap at Nogueira, so awesome was he. I laugh at the people that have written him off because of one loss. Minotauro is a fucking legend and that is why he is in my sig. 

And fuck the fascist that booed him, no one boos Big Nog.

Just saw it, awesome fight. Randy Couture is incredible, at his age to still be able to compete like that, to still get out of some of those submissions, wow. That is a man that can be proud of his legacy to the very end, unlike Liddel who fell off the earth.  Good fight be Nogueria, so will they pit him against Brock?
