Scott Coker's response to Dana White's assclownery

So Coker responded in a professional, non-fucktard way to Dana White being an idiot. I wonder how long White can keep this shit up? I'm getting sick of it. I'm getting sick of the bullshit rich-guy monopoly, and I'm seeing the UFC have issues with it at some point in the future. Probably not for a while...they're still selling PPVs, and making bank at it. But sometime soon it's going to start causing trouble, the bullshit bro-tude that White brings as douche-in-chief, and it's going to cost some people a chance at making a living. And since he works for the Fertittas, he may end up in the trunk of a car if he fucks up too badly.

Reilly and the Fertittas

The more I learn about NY state congresscritter and his potential conflict of interest with the Fertittas brothers over their treatment of hotel workers, and their union, the more I hope the UFC fails. I know unions aren't always great, but they represent the little guy. The Fertittas, and Dana White, they represent themselves, millionaires. And the mob, but that's a different story. Is it weird that a union, examples of which have long been mob cash cows, is in conflict with a business with known (well, strongly implicated) organized crime connections? Weirder and weirder.
What is definitely weird is the number of "media" outlets in the MMA world that are whole-hog in favor of lynching Reilly. Are you REALLY that far up Dana White's ass? Are you REALLY in favor of the shitty monopolistic anti-labor practices the UFC follows? Are you REALLY rooting for a petty, vindictive tyrant like White and two questionably-moralled guys like the Fertittas? Really, MMA "media"?

Evan Tanner documentary

I'd recommend watching this trailer for "Once I Was A Champion", a documentary about Evan Tanner. Right up to the part where they show Chael Sonnen saying Evan was not intelligent. Even to the dead, Chael Sonnen is a fucking huge evil scumbag. I hope that guy gets stuck in a vent.
