I didnt feel that the card was a ripoff. I didnt see any barn burners but they were good fights. The problem is newer people to MMA are used to boxing and other sports. They think every fight should end with a flash. In MMA sometimes its a ugly ground game or clinch war. You have to respect it all. I think hard core fans of MMA like myself liked the PPV just fine.
As for Dana, he is very passionate about his job. He does a ton for MMA. There are always gonna be people that hate him. As for his recent reasons people hate him it just reminds me of all the people that got mad at Metallica for taking legal action against Napster. Forgive Metallica and forgive Dana White if they dont want to work hard for free.
Yep, the mma forums will prove that too. Learning the ground game can take a long time. You have to learn submissions, submission defense, wrestling, sweeps, positions(guard, half gaurd, mount, side control ect..) then of course the difference between styles like BJJ and catch wrestling and so on, it can definitely be confusing for newer viewers.
The of course you have to learn about the cliche game, and dirty boxing, and all the different striking styles( muay thai, dutch kickboxing, karate, western boxing ect..). But once you learn them you can learn to appreciate almost every fight(even Jon Fitch ones:lol
