    I however, am a fan of White

    he has molded the UFC into a legit powerhouse

    granted he's not the most warm and fuzzy guy out there, but consider the area he is working in

    Yeah its kind of an understatement, most people wouldn't even know what MMA is, without the rise of UFC.

    I'll give him props as a businessman. The dude obviously knows what he's doing and like Vib said, he turned UFC into a brand name and he's given a good chunk of $$ to chairty, so good on him there.

    But I've also seen enough interviews/articles where he's come off as a jerkwad. Granted some of them shine him in a less-than-positive light becuase that's what get hits, he does come off as ignornant and a bully other times.

    Again not a fan of the guy, but hey, good on him for making some $$$.

    by his own admission, he is rather unvarnished, but he does have passion for the job and growing the sport

    its why MMA is slowly surpassing boxing, there is an accessibility there that boxing hasn't had for decades...at least here in the US

    Oh totally. Again it's more of a "Hate the player, not the game" stance towards White. And even "Hate" is a strong wrong. As for the sport itself, I have no problem with any success it achieves.

    Well, I wouldn't go quite that far, but you could have been nicer about it. For example, you could have said, "Yeah, I really prefer working by myself" and maybe also "I have to get done as quickly as possible because I have to go straight to work", and if you were feeling particularly generous, "If I'm not in a hurry some night, I might be able to help you a little."

    Sidenote: I really wish there was some non-WWE/UFC promotion that combined the strenghts of each -the over the topness of Rasslin, and technical skill of MMA. With ridiculous costumes. Which is a given.

    That would be HIGHLY entertaining.

    S'all good dude, different strokes for different folks n' such.

    But yeah, competition would be good, or at least have boxing step it's game up. Ideally they're the only thing that could compete with UFC these days, outside of and unknown party coming around with a plethora of cash-money.

    I can't object to more fights. We watched WEC for the minute it existed. I've never been able to get behind boxing, though. It seems to me if you're gonna try and kick someone's ass, you might as well use your whole body to do it. (Not to mention the heavy boxing gloves are responsible for much more brain damage than the barely-there MMA gloves.) Frankly, I was fond of the original no-rules UFC, but no one else wanted to watch people actually kill each other. Pshaw I say! Pshaw!
