Dana is definitely butthurt that Bellator is starting to become bigger. Sure bad mouth the company all you want like a gossiping little high school girl, but what kind of piece of crap tries to make a kid pick between whats best for his career and his father.

    Yeah, this is definitely bad PR for Dana. Sometimes I begin to wonder why he is "in charge" of the UFC....I mean sure he's brought it all this way just like the mafia guys, but right now....idk man. Tough situation.

    Seems like a bad move by Dana but none of us know the whole story so I won't pass judgement.

    Honestly I don't think that Ryan will last long in the UFC anyway.

    Wow!!!

    You twisted his words really well....He said this in the post fight press conference and he said it very respectfully.

    You just made conflict with Ryan when there shouldn't of been any.

    This is what Dana said to Ryan:

    Skip to 21:20:




    I really don't see it as that big of a problem. Dana had to say something to Ryan. Make sure everything with them 2 would be okay.

    If Ryan Couture was a great fighter Dana would handle the situation differently.

    Dana is losing respect every day he fights with legends. Clearly there not saying these things for no reason, all these guys can't be universally agreeing upon things if they weren't true. Dana should man up and say he pays fighters 1/10 what they deserve.

    Just when you thought Dana couldn't say anything more retarded, he comes out with this BS. So he basically just wanted to tell Ryan that he hated his dad? I think Randy may have already made him aware of the situation tbh, and Dana has no right trying to weasle into what is an issue between a father and son, trying to look like hes a nice guy. We all know Dana is a tool, and Ryan wouldn't be in the UFC if he could get the same money and quality of competition elsewhere. The bottom line is that Ryan knows all of this and so does everybody else, no need whatsoever for Dana to be all passive aggressive about telling him he can stay in the UFC as long as he follows his rules to the letter. All this 'we're all one big UFC family' crap is borderline insulting given the stuation, Dana has made his position clear already and should leave it alone.

    If you listen to the clip, it's not quite as bad as it seems written down.

    I agree that it's f'in retarded to make this out to be as big as he is because he took another opportunity. HE'S NOT EVEN FIGHTING ANYMORE! Dana has to realize that it's his life and he's allowed to do what he wants...the government makes monopolies illegal for a reason because it becomes retarded how power hungry some people get

    Bottom line, don't get between a kid and his dad

    On a side note...at around 29:00 he talks about how he's on prednisone. I was on that stuff once and it makes you more irritable and angry than you could ever imagine. I have a feeling that his rampage on couture had something to do with him being on Prednisone...anyone who was on those knows how it makes you
