More select Dana White quotes on the excommunication of AKA from the UFC:
This is not an attack on Jon Fitch. It’s not an attack on any one fighter. We have chosen not to do business with this camp called AKA. These guys have never, ever, ever treated us like partners.
They’re always fighting over stupid, stupid (stuff) and negotiating over stuff that makes no sense. They’re negotiating like they’ve got Mel Gibson and this thing is the biggest movie ever being made. You know what I’m saying?
And you know what? This is more than just AKA. There’s other camps out there that we’re having trouble doing business with. And at the end of the day, this is a business. We run a business just like any other business. You come in, you do your job with your company and you get paid.
And the guys that don’t want to do business with you â€” then go work somewhere else. It’s as easy as that. You don’t have to do business with us. There’s other people out there you can do it with.
Like I said, there’s guys that have been partners with us in million ways. Not just on the video game, but on a lot of other things â€” a lot of other things. This camp (AKA) has not.
If it doesn’t get handled behind closed doors, like the AKA guys, and they want to run around and cry about it after â€” believe me, I talked to them five times. And I told them, “Do you guys not want to work with us? Is that want you want to do? Do you not want to work with us? Are you impossible to deal with?”
There’s a saying that goes something like this: If everyone you meet seems to be an asshole, chances are you’re the one who is the asshole. Dana talks about how all these camps are being so unreasonable. Does it ever cross his mind that he’s the one who’s out of line?
