    I was listening in the background, and I am pretty sure I heard someone asked Dana about another Pride fighter winning a title in the UFC and Dana responed with "He isnt a Pride fighter, he is with the UFC now." So let me get this straight, if they lose, "This isnt Japan." and Pride fighters cant cut it in the UFC. But if they win in the UFC, it doesnt matter that they fought in Pride?

    I think you pretty much summed up Dana's way of thinking!

    Fuck it, that's not exactly the right way to do it, but if you're trying to turn a business into a household name, that's just the way you have to do it. It sounds like Dana truly believes that Zuffa and the UFC is the best, and nobody has been able to prove him wrong so far.

    I don't agree with everything the guy says, but he believes in his product.
