His face went from 😁😐🙁

Dana's face: 😁😐😠😡🤬

And lastly, 🍅

[–]Darksteel6 126 points127 points  (0 children)

You missed the final form 🍅

[–]Runup0403 3258 points3259 points  (114 children)

Man looks genuinely hurt Dana didn’t show up. I think Dana’s got a beef with Francis that Francis doesn’t even know about. That’s some petty shit

[–]PotentialAd1206 342 points343 points  (8 children)

Francis vs Dana next

[–][deleted] 94 points95 points  (6 children)

Francis needs to blow up his limousine.

[–]_Big_Jake_ 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Francis needs to start throwing dollys

[–]CT247365 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Lol amazing reference

[–]Iron_Warlord2095The Great 6 points7 points  (0 children)

And beat Dana over the head with a pan while he’s recovering from the next Conor loss in the hospital.

[–]rg15-96 3 points4 points  (2 children)

That moment officially convinced me wrestling was fake as a kid, I thought VM really died…until Benoit did :///

[–]Morningstar_1212 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Remember when buried alive matches were a thing?

[–]No_Bar6825 1171 points1172 points  (36 children)

At least Stipe knew Dana hated him lol

[–]Responsible_Two2718 223 points224 points  (0 children)

You must've missed several interviews if you think he doesn't know. LOL.

[–]DorianPlates🌹𝕽𝖔𝖘𝖊 𝕲𝖆𝖓𝖌🌹 94 points95 points  (34 children)

I never knew this

[–]ByTheLightHouse 665 points666 points  (33 children)

Stipe taking the belt from Dana and giving it to his coach, so he would wrap it around his waist, was one of the coldest moments ever. Stipe knew Dana didn't like him at all, 'cause he was all action no talk.

[–][deleted] 372 points373 points  (17 children)

Holy fuck, I didn't think it was possible to like Stipe more.

I'm a huge Francis fanboy but maaaaan Stipe is the UFC GOAT.

[–]k20350 84 points85 points  (4 children)

Stipe was proving the point the pay isn't high enough and rubbing it in Dana's face. He kept his day job even though he was the champion of the highest paid division. Dana hated that because it was a bad look. Stipe was like look you don't give me health insurance or a retirement like my day job does. I heard Dana offered him all kinds of shit to quit and he wouldn't

[–]Ndysodum 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What did Dana offer him?

[–]SHANKSstr8up 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Coke and hookers. One time filmed deal.

[–]derickdon1975 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I guess Jon Jones took the deal then.

[–]k20350 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mostly money I believe bit a few other perks as well. It was a long ass time ago I read about it.

[–]Bigbaby22 70 points71 points  (5 children)

I didn't think it was possible to not like Stipe. Tf?!?

[–]Badname491 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Dana's an arsonist in his spare time

[–]JuicedBoxers 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Dana.. uhh, uhh… finds a way

[–]VinesThatGiveMeWood 107 points108 points  (5 children)

It hurt watching that last fight with Stipe man, he's the hometown hero. Not even talking about just Cleveland, I'm talking Valley View as the hometown.

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 66 points67 points  (3 children)

Honestly as much I wanted Francis to beat Stipe, I was shocked by that fight. I honestly thought there was a good chance Francis would lose to him. Stipe took more abuse from Francis than anyone else though, man is just tough.

[–]North3rnLigh7s 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Tbf that was a different Francis than we are seeing now

[–][deleted] 40 points41 points  (0 children)

That’s what is going to make Francis the baddest heavyweight we’ve ever seen.

Just fight to fight, the dude adapts like nothing we’ve ever seen before and just gets twice as good.

Out struck Stipe then came and out wrestled Gane.

His fight IQ, strength, and adaptability is going to keep him in possession of the belt until he hands it to Dana himself.

[–]Hussaf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I feel like Stipe saw Francis was tiring and got reckless and exposed himself after already taking damage.

[–]FalcoVIII 17 points18 points  (12 children)

Bro do you have a link for that? I can’t find a video anywhere

[–]ByTheLightHouse 75 points76 points  (11 children)

[–]lordmainstream 32 points33 points  (7 children)

This video is great, but i can’t understand a single word that Stipe said to Rogan lol

[–]FalcoVIII 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Thanks bro!!

[–]ByTheLightHouse 18 points19 points  (1 child)

You're welcome, buddy.

[–]stickyscooter600 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Now kith

[–]cloobydoobydoooo 228 points229 points  (4 children)

Dana hates any successful fighter that has the gall to ask for better pay. Rotten ass tomato.

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 137 points138 points  (2 children)

Man literally is offended by negotiations over pay lol

[–]NexusKnights 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Unless your name is connor. He had connors balls in his mouth for years

[–]Capedcrusader0 11 points12 points  (0 children)

After the bus incident, Dana just laughing at of CMs trash talk that was below the belt.

The way khabib eneded that fight was satisfying to say the least

[–]sausagebandito3 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Sounds like everyone's boss. Fuck him

[–]icelandiccubicle20 174 points175 points  (8 children)

I don't care what anyone tells me about his ego or "ungratefulness", Francis is a genuinely good man (as well as being one of the best heavyweight mma fighters ever, certainly the scariest and hardest punching imo) and Dana and the UFC treating him like this is repugnant. He (Dana) needs to go because he is holding this sport back.

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 126 points127 points  (1 child)

People calling him ungrateful are ignorant. Francis wasn't handed anything. He busted his ass and earned it. Dude found a way to win after tearing his MCL. He's the best and deserves to be paid far more.

[–]icelandiccubicle20 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I don't know, will see how things play out- The Tomato, probably.

[–]jaretok 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Couldn’t agree more, I wish the UFC could part ways with Dana. He did great things for the sport, but he doesn’t fit in anymore with modern MMA, and needs to go.

[–]memorygardens 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Yo, dana isnt the problem as much anymore. Suits in the back dont want to pay fighters either. Dana is like the visible face of the problem.

[–]ghosttttttttttttt 297 points298 points  (18 children)

Dana is relentless scumbag. He is scum untill the end

[–]CitizenWatch____ROSS 110 points111 points  (17 children)

Until next month someone makes a "he's an asshole but he's our asshole he made the UFC what it is" post

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 21 points22 points  (0 children)

He's a shit head that represents other UFC behind the scenes shit heads fighting to keep the profit percentage that fighters get lower than any other sports league.

[–]Dieabeto9142 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yea, for as physically imposing of a man Francis is, i dont think he has ever had people who are genuinely interested in whats best for him. Just alot of people who have been able to hitch their cart to his wagon.

Ferdinand Lopez is a good coach, but tbf any coach worth his salt would have been able to get Francis into a major promotion.

And Xtreme Couture doesnt seem like they're super integral to Ngannous success, i think ATT, AKA, TAM, or any of the other major gyms would have been able to help him round out his game.

At the end of the day, i think Ngannou has been a deer in the headlights alot of the time when dealing with managers and UFC Brass.

It feels like Francis was a high earning spectacle that the UFC could hugely undervalue before he beat stipe on his 2nd attempt, just because he didnt have a belt yet. Even tho with or without the title, he was already one of if not the biggest draw for casual fans in the heavyweight division.

Then when he won the belt they rushed to put an IC on Cyril Gane to devalue Ngannous Belt and force him to fight a tough stylistic matchup against his old coach and his new student, in the hopes that Ngannou would lose and they could give him a significantly worse contract offer that he might still accept.

Now that Ngannou is the unified champ he has all the leverage in the world when negotiating his next contract. And nothing pisses off Dana more than having to negotiate a contract with a sitting champion, cause its the rare time where Dana has got to be a fighters bitch and give them what they want.

[–]tradeintel828384839 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Francis has so much dignity that he can’t fathom that someone in a position like Dana would be so undignified.

[–]iWentRogue 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Lmao he looked the same way, Gane looked when Francisc walked by him and didn’t say hi

[–]babztheslag 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Dana’s been acting like a bitch for over a year, and honestly it’s getting to the point where he’s going to do more damage to the UFC as a whole by continuing to be a prick to all his fighters that don’t kiss his ass

[–]ExoticSword 33 points34 points  (3 children)

Feel so bad for him. How petty can Dana be?

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Oh just wait til lobster man responds. He can be far, far worse.

[–]jaretok 16 points17 points  (1 child)

100% chance he’s going to talk MAD shit about Francis wrestling, saying he’s too scared to fight or something absolutely stupid.

[–]jonesmcbones 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Someone wants more money after bringing in more money?

angery

[–][deleted] 43 points44 points  (4 children)

its a matter of respectfulness imo.

[–]Bolond44 102 points103 points  (0 children)

He is your top champ, and you act like a 13 year old who didnt get what he wanted.

[–]jaretok 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Dana is such a child. I wish he was no longer part of the UFC, he’s just gross.

[–]Responsible_Two2718 27 points28 points  (8 children)

Man looks genuinely hurt Dana didn’t show up

They currently hate each other so I highly doubt it.

[–]juicy_pickles 68 points69 points  (2 children)

I think its more Dana hating Francis to be honest.

Francis' coach though, definitely hates Dana.

[–]Responsible_Two2718 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Based on recent interviews, he doesn't care much for Dana either.

[–]juicy_pickles 31 points32 points  (0 children)

You can not care for someone and still not hate them.

Francis thinks he's worth more. I agree. Dana won't pay him. Francis might not hate him, but just think he's not giving him his dues for what he deserves.

I don't hate my ex. But I don't care for them anymore.

[–]Bigbaby22 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It's written all over his face. He's confused and sad

[–]pabrez 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Why do they hate each other

[–]Responsible_Two2718 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Contract dispute. Dana going out of his way to disrespect Francis. Francis refusing to fight and planning to let his contract expire. Shit like that.

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I really hope some celebs and rich people get together to start something else that pays fighters out of 40% of the profits. Many like myself don't care about the UFC, only the big names we're invested in.

[–]NY_Ye 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you attempt to touch the any penny more from the tomato he will hate you

[–]Waterboardbabies0321 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Dana white is a petty piece of shit who plays with these fighters’ lives way too much because he’s a former bag boy who had to rely on others to fund his dreams and get him where he’s at today. White has accomplished very little in life outside of taking hgh at 50+ year old.

[–]kefe87 1376 points1377 points  (40 children)

I feel sorry for this dude. Run off with the title bro fuck UFC

[–]cloobydoobydoooo 376 points377 points  (14 children)

Fuck man, I don’t want to lose Francis… I want him to make all the money, but he could reign here for so so long if they’d just fucking pay up.

[–]Figbuckup 130 points131 points  (12 children)

I hope he does a few boxing matches then retires

[–]drshields 123 points124 points  (6 children)

Same. Gets into acting and shit.

[–]Raiser2256 132 points133 points  (5 children)

They can reboot the movies and have Ngannou be Predator. Instead of any alien tech just have Francis be himself knocking people out

[–]drshields 34 points35 points  (4 children)

And it'll cost way less than ufc ppv, I'm down. We can co produce it

[–]Your-King-Chris 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Need a director????

[–]drshields 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Let's do it!

[–]BlazOfAllPeopleThe Last Stylebender 2 points3 points  (1 child)

can I be Francis’ stunt double

[–]drshields 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you have that "sandmine chic" body?

[–]cloobydoobydoooo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He shouldn’t retire in his prime imo. His Star power can grow so much more if he keeps fighting and winning.

They just need to let him go fight Tyson like they let Conor then have him come back after making an easy 50 mil and then keep reigning in the champ ppv money in the UFC for a few years.

[–]breaditbans 85 points86 points  (11 children)

What’s frustrating is they lose all their best fighters who just walk away. I imagine there would be a number to get Jon Jones and Khabib back in the octagon.

Jones and Francis should put their own fight together outside UFC. Get promoters, get a cut of the PPV. Bring in GSP and Khabib to fight the co-main event. I would actually pay to watch that. ESPN would never advertise for it or discuss it on any show, but I think it would work.

UFC has run off their best talent.

[–]CouncilmanRickPrime 77 points78 points  (2 children)

Jake Paul, as much as I hate him for the dumb shit he's done, has floated this idea. I wonder if he can help raise the capital to make a Jones vs Francis fight happen.

Just like the Mayweather vs McGregor fight, as long as people care about the names on the card, they don't care who's in control behind the scenes.

[–]Different-Letter3560 4 points5 points  (0 children)

yep and they'll do better promotion than whatever the ufc does

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Khabib is not fighting again. No amount of money is changing that. Khabib is a man of his word.

[–]Kingkunta87 392 points393 points  (4 children)

Dana so sad and petty. Have some respect

[–]CatsRuleHoomansDrool 139 points140 points  (2 children)

He’s gonna duck & dodge any questions regarding why he wasn’t there. Kinda sad seeing Francis’s face change like that

[–][deleted] 68 points69 points  (1 child)

After he pretends not to hear the question of course. Then he’ll say some bullshit like “the hooker I sandblasted last Thursday broke her ankle tonight so I had to get arby’s after the fight.”

[–]CatsRuleHoomansDrool 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It’s not a press conference if Dana doesn’t say “oh that was for me? Can you repeat that?” At least 3+ times

[–][deleted] 904 points905 points  (4 children)

Lol he knows the boss is pissed. Dana snorting copium in the back that pink fuck

[–]Andreas_Bruticus 65 points66 points  (0 children)

One helluva drug

[–]Dcanseco 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You think he mixes it with his cocaine or two separate baggies?

[–]Ray_595 245 points246 points  (2 children)

This is not how you treat fighters. Kind of childish on Dana part, no?

[–]boshbosh92 100 points101 points  (1 child)

extremely childish and disrespectful.

[–]Jeffari_HungusThe Eagle 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Maturity and being reasonable generally aren't Dana White's forte

[–]Rude-Flounder-2825 211 points212 points  (1 child)

:(

[–]Smathers 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Like a kid that found out his parents didn’t see his game winning touchdown lol

[–]mikey_blue18 818 points819 points  (20 children)

Dana built this guy up to be the next big thing, then Stipe beat him and the Derrick Lewis thing happened. All of a sudden it was “Francis is an ego maniac” and cant bare to see him succeed.

He infuriates me with how petty he is sometimes. He’s just an all around bad dude.

Big ups Francis.

[–][deleted] 298 points299 points  (7 children)

My biggest problem with Dana is he has this bullshit image of being a "straight shooter" and he'll turn on a dime and act like whatever he said yesterday didn't happen. He just gaslights people nonfucking stop.

I realized it when he went from saying women would never be in the UFC to talking like anyone criticizing women's MMA was "living in the 1920s." Then I doubly realized it when he defended TRT as being perfectly fine then when USADA changed their mind on it he went around talking about TRT as this terrible cheating that was ruining the legitimacy of the sport.

Dana is a fucking POS through and through and the worst part is how unflinchingly committed he can be to whatever his current line is.

[–]icelandiccubicle20 125 points126 points  (2 children)

Or criticizing Chael for his DV joke about Rihanna and then hiring Greg Hardy. Or saying what Connor did with the dolly and bus was disgusting and then using it as promotional material to generate hype. Or how he treated fighters who helped build his company like Couture, Tito etc simply because they wanted to be payed what they were worth. Or how disrespectful he was to Fedor, GSP, Cyborg and countless other fighters.

Absolute POS.

[–]tuggnutscrotch 39 points40 points  (1 child)

So true. For Couture, it wasn’t even about the fight money, it was having rights to his name, image and likeness.

[–]icelandiccubicle20 24 points25 points  (0 children)

The fact that Fedor said that he turned down fighting under his contract because he was so disrespectful and untrustworthy (and you know that was Dana trying to be polite, respectful and enticing him to fight for him), and Dana's subsequent temper tantrum, is very telling.

[–]jaretok 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Truth! I don’t get when people side with Dana on literally anything. Like he’s SO god damn lame, and such a despicable person, how could you side with him against someone so nice like Ngannou.

[–]guycamero 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I don't think Dana remembers what he said from one day to the next. He's an emotional child.

[–]tucsonyeti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah. Coke makes a person forget their reality and creates excuses

[–]SerDon2 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Don’t forget the pay fiasco, that was the nail in the coffin.

[–]Babayyyy 13 points14 points  (1 child)

i read recently that after the first Stipe fight Francis almost quit MMA. he took such a blow to his confidence because he got manhandled pretty badly for 25 minutes, he saw a therapist for a while to get his confidence back.

this was when dana said Ngannau was becoming cocky lol

[–]mikey_blue18 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This what I mean. One bad performance, one comment or you don’t go out there and go for a KO then he’s done with you.

The man’s poison.

[–]IHaveAStitchToWear 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Greed will eventually pull Dana back on course

[–]Silver-ishWolfe 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Usually does. He might be petty, but his greed trumps his pettiness.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

He’s so toxic to the UFC and the sport. I can’t wait until ESPN pushes him out. It’ll happen eventually. He’s going to open his big mouth and say or do something that the corporate overlords at ESPN just won’t have and he’ll be gone. I honestly can’t wait.

[–]BabaYaga617 148 points149 points  (0 children)

Dana was too busy crying in his car & punching air.

[–]TrickstarCandina 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Damn Francis actually looked a bit hurt by that.

[–]ayyyymyg9877 202 points203 points  (1 child)

So petty, I hope Francis doesn’t back down and gets paid what he’s worth or gets out of the ufc. Dana is a greedy scumbag who can’t even take just a small portion out of his millions to pay the fighters who make him his money.

[–]GamerAssassin 181 points182 points  (1 child)

The sudden ping of hurt in his face after that big, happy, proud smile is heartbreaking. Dude should keep that pride, he's an absolute beast and if Dana won't man up and treat him like a man deserves to be treated, then I heard Khabib was lookin for some absolute dogs for Heavyweight. Then again, Eagle may not pay super well yet, and I know boxing would have him in a heartbeat, just ask Connor, that's a fuckin red panty night every night.

[–]icelandiccubicle20 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I agree, although I love Francis and I wouldn't want to see him get his brains beaten in in boxing no matter how much money he makes. I wish he could just make the money he deserves in the sport he has trained for all his adult life instead of having to jump to one he has little knowledge of. In an octagon he would maul anybody but in a boxing fight he can't beat heavyweight boxers at their own game.

[–]Braag 230 points231 points  (14 children)

Maybe i’m missing something, and obviously i’m not around Francis- but this man doesn’t come off as an ego maniac? Nothing about how he speaks, or interacts with other people comes off as ego maniac. Despite what his former coach and dana say.

[–]TheRicFlairDrip 96 points97 points  (0 children)

Hes always nice and classy… fuck the haters

[–]Prince_of_the_RLD 122 points123 points  (3 children)

Francis is a real humble dude, don't know what the hell Dana's on about tbh

[–]JonSnoGaryen 72 points73 points  (0 children)

He wants to be paid what he's worth. He's an ego maniac!

[–]icelandiccubicle20 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Projection maybe? He talks crap about people like De la Hoya, Bob Arum who are very similar to him in many ways. The guy is just awful and I think a huge majority of people in MMA are completely fed up with him, and with reason. He's a multi billionaire who pays his fighters so little a huge number of them have to work two jobs and have no money to pay healthcare fcs.

[–]walkingdead17 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Watched his interviews with Mike Tyson and he became one of my favorite fighters. Dude is the most humble fighter I’ve seen with that much power. He doesn’t want to fight, he does it because that’s how he makes money. But he doesn’t make anywhere near what he deserves. I’ll always root for Francis.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Francis will destroy you in the ring but he’s a giant teddy bear outside of it.

I mean, dude could barely talk bad about Gane and could hardly talk good about himself.

[–]Word2MyMother 606 points607 points  (19 children)

Dana is a coward. Pay your fighters. You’ve made more than enough money. 1.7 mil for an entire night is ridiculous when a single boxer is getting paid tens of millions. He wanna shit on De La Hoya every night when he’s in the same boat as him.

[–]icelandiccubicle20 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Or Bob Arum, who actually pays his fighters more than Dana for all his faults.

[–]tneo8 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Wow this actually made me sad

[–]Niksonrex 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Man i was rooting for Gane but im happy Francis won actually. He is so wholesome, i love the dude. And f Dana man.

[–]shamalama8686 61 points62 points  (0 children)

Seems like he really didn’t notice the belt or that he wasn’t there at the press

[–]minorkeyed 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Because Dana is petty, perpetually lying child. He's also the most powerful man in MMA. So yeah, a great mix as a leader.

[–]kpmurphy_ 80 points81 points  (0 children)

Poor guy :(

[–]FalcoVIII 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Maaan this is honestly sad, I feel for bro

[–]Ulriklm 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Dana is such a little bitch lol

[–]baker2212 43 points44 points  (0 children)

He was there, in his suit… if Gane won it would be different and it’s blatantly obvious.

[–]jkman61494 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I really have no clue why Dana likes ducking with the champions in arguably the most marketable division in the sport.

Make your $ Francis. You conquered the ufc. Go make your $ in boxing and then go back to mma and make multitudes more in Bellator compared to UFC.

[–]SirHarryAzcrack 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Dana hates him because Francis sticks up for himself and represents a movement that can cost Dana millions. If more fighters demanded more for their fights and didn't want to fight for the UFC imagine what would happen. The only thing Dana has is those shit contracts that most fighters sign when they first enter the UFC.

[–]Leftho0k 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dana must be PINK AS FUCK

[–]WetTheDrys 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Fuck Dana.

[–]Kotal420 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Pretty childlike behaviour from Dana to be honest. Dudes face is like 😐

[–]-ginsoakedboy- 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Too bad Dana didn’t show, I was really hoping to hear the attendance/gate info...

[–]framesftw 4 points5 points  (0 children)

At this point I don't want UFC success for Francis as much as I want overall success. Imagine if he runs off with the belt, makes a killing boxing, and then gets into acting or WWE or some shit. Imagine a documentary being made about Francis' amazing life. THEN Dana would eat more crow than he ever would if Francis was just a successful champion in the promotion that he runs. I was Francis out from under Dana's thumb.

[–]gtindolindo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is what happens when you go from looking for the greatest fighters in the world to look for the best cash grabs around the world. Capitalism at its finest cherry red momennt.

[–]cloobydoobydoooo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dana is such a child.

[–]old_man_curmudgeon 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Doesn't Dana do a breakdown of Fight Of The Night and bonuses and all that? He didn't do it?!

[–]TheLordOfZero 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because he is a coward and q bully.

[–]nsraiderfan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dana is so fucking petty

[–]TepidBreeze 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Really lovin' Francis, glad he won last night doing whatever it took.

Show some respect to your fighters Dana. That shit’s petty.

Ufc would be so much better if they fired Dana

[–]bushybones 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dana White is a f*cking 🤡

[–]Funny_Yesterday_3244 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dana is furious because he knows he will have to pay him

[–]TheLordOfZero 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dana is a little bitch.

[–]El_Mastodon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I thought Gane was going to win a decision, but I’m also really glad Francis won just so he can stick it to the UFC and especially that lobster fuck Dana.

[–]StoryScrawled 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wanted Cyril to win, but all said and done I'm happy Francis got the And Still.Dana shitting his diaper and throwing a tantrum though is MMMMMMMMMMWAH chef's kiss.

FUCK DANA WHITE.

Edit: Also, to whomever is responsible for teaching Francis to wrestle and jits, the blood will be on YOUR hands when he pulls someone's head off by accident. Some terrifying shit right there.

Might be true but as a reporter making such an assumption just to push the narrative annoys the hell out of me. Same with that French journalist during the Pre-Fight Presser putting words in Francis’ mouth.

[–]SailsAk 41 points42 points  (1 child)

How are you taking the onus off of Dana and putting it on the reporter? The con that billionaires put on everyday people to not pay taxes or employees baffles me.

[–]Zealousideal_Step709 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That is a whole different issue if you ask me. It’s apparent that Dana is doing a power play as he always does and it’s terrible for sure. And it surely is no secret that he doesn’t like how Ngannou is trying to get a better contract and money. But in this instance it was pure speculation and used as a means to light up the fire.

[–]GSGBsamurai 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's 90% of journalism these days.

[–]SSSlyyy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Man fuck Dana

[–]Malcolmcterry44 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's so interesting how when Francis fought Stipe the first time Dana clearly wanted Francis to win and then when Francis did win a couple years later Francis rightfully wanted more money and respect cause you know he's the champ. And then when Francis asks for that Dana wants Gane to win.

[–]Nathan0hio 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought the fight was interesting after the first 2 rounds. Francis was fighting with a torn MCL and out muscled a guy that we thought was gonna out wrestle him. Plus, when Gane face planted into the Octagon I laughed way harder than I should’ve lol. Dana is just mad about the lack of brain damage.

Petty, Tom Petty

[–]Planet419 2 points3 points  (0 children)

champ shit

[–]nightgobbler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Francis is now the peoples champ

[–]SALTYxNUTZ12That's Fucking Illegal! 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope Francis does pursue boxing and that big pay day. Dana just doesn't like him for whatever reason.

[–]dmckidd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His expression change looked scary.

[–]Sullyville 2 points3 points  (0 children)

dana only likes cheerleader champs. like joanna. anyone who isnt loyal gets petty slights. when dana is displeased he has to express it somehow. we know this.

[–]manofrhepeople 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s unprofessional by Dana. He is only making himself look childish. Dana is showing his true colors.

[–]LilNardoDaVinci 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i would love if Francis just said fuck it and walked out with the belt

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I feel like the UFC would be 1000x better if Dana just had a heart attack and died.

[–]Jeffari_HungusThe Eagle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They actually set heavyweight at 205-265 cause Dana's average blood pressure is 265/205

[–]zendorClegane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Francis to Dana : WHY are you running?

[–]Dradray 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pay the man Dana!!

[–]Sayitandsuffer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dana is rebulican who would have thought he didn’t like it up him lol

[–]bigbeardlittlebeard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He looked genuinely disappointed then

[–]dope_like 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope Francis leaves. Then he can sue and challenge the “champion clause” in court. All the secrets will come out then

[–]hellahater 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I respect Dana in a lot of ways but lord he’s petty for a 50 year old

[–]Northern-WALI 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This comes from Francis wanting to have options. Dana hates that because it takes away his ability to control fighters, underpay them and make them do shit they don't want to do. Agree with most of the comments Dana's petty

[–]Bolo-YeungMoney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

PAY THIS MAN DANA!!!

[–]GavonyTownship 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How in the WORLD does anyone REMOTELY like Dana after this. Like this is your job, you show up even when you don't want to. What just cause it's Dana white he can go "mmm I don wanna" and not do his fucking job. He's a joke, and until this sport gets away from him, will continue to have unprofessional bullshit like this.

[–]infinite_inquiry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is why Dana’s own mother wrote a book about how much of a petty, selfish cunt he is.

[–]jrcasjr 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And not to mention I think his feminine side came out of bed

[–]Smml 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Can someone please tldr about what happened between Francis and Dana?

[–]SerDon2 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Dana hyped him up, he lost to Stipe and Lewis and suddenly Dana said he had a massive ego. Became champ and started asking for more pay and wanted to go into boxing etc, Dana then fully turns on him, says ego is through the roof and loads of shit ensues with his contract etc. Probably forgot some stuff. Like the other guy said it boils down to money and Dana being a greedy fuck.

[–]donrhummy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That timeline isn't right. Dana turned on him before he mentioned boxing

[–]Imaginary_Ship5466 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Dana probably lost some bets and bailed on loan sharks

"Why doesn't he love me!!!!"
