Dana White and Golden Glory can ‘absolutely positively’ make a deal

Golden Glory manager Bas Boon spent last week trying to reconcile with the UFC … whether their split had to do with miscommunications due to Boon being in the hospital like he claimed or the realization that Japan was too sketchy to rely on for income, we may never know. But if they’re serious about getting Alistair Overeem into the UFC, it sounds like Dana White is happy to have him:

He knows and I know and everybody over there (Golden Glory) knows…even the fighters. I don’t give a s— what they tweet, what they take pictures of or what they say. They f—— know exactly how it worked and we would not do it that way. Now if Bas Boon is saying that this is the way that we can do it, then we can absolutely positively make a deal and we can get this thing rolling again.”

To be in a position where Alistair could come over and fight in the UFC? Why would I not do it? I chased Fedor (Emelianenko) around…forever, when I told you guys publicly that I didn’t think he was the best. Pound-for-pound or otherwise. I was willing to prove it. Let’s get him over here. Let’s offer him a deal. You think I’m gonna chase Alistair Overeem and don’t want him fighting here? You think I want him to go somewhere else? No.

Jeez, on the surface this is all working out so nicely that it almost gives credence to the conspiracy theory that this is all just theater that gets Overeem out of Strikeforce and into the UFC. Well, maybe it isn’t ‘working out’ so great for Marloes Coenen and Jon Olav Einemo. But Alistair in the UFC would be pretty sweet, even taking into account the collateral damage.

    It makes sense for ubereem, and it lets them know that Dana is the new boss man.

    Win, win for me.

    Also, can’t wait for Overeem to start kicking ass in the UFC and all the bandwagon jumpers who are hatin’ now jump on his his freighttrain!

    The guy who mauled such luminaries as Paul Buentello and Spare-tire Von Wiffenbeatre thinks he deserves an immediate shitle tot in the UFC.

    And I used to love this guy’s humility.

    ^ maybe not an immediate title shot but I doubt anyone would complain about him getting in with a top 5 HW and getting a shot if he wins impressively

    I look forward to seeing him failololol. Speaking of wagons, people drive now and unless you live in a place where people are still using wagons as a primary mean of transportation then stop using the term bandwagon. Wagons dont haul bands around. Big party buses do. They fucking have jacuzzi’s in there. And last time i checked, overeem is not or ever has been or going to be in a band.
    So because he’s black he must be in a jazz band riding in a wagon. Fucking racists.

    That was inspired Phoenix, bravo.

    I still feel bad for Marloes, just rewatched her armbar Kauffman and she felt so bad that Horseface Boring Kauffman whined about the armbar being too long she almost literally cried with dissappointment. She had all the emotion of the win and didn’t want it to be anything but fair and genuinely gave a fuck about sarah and the outcome. I can only imagine what it must’ve been like to lose to tate, which you could already tell she was furious at herself for getting caught, then find out your shitcanned for no reason other than things generally outside of your control.

    There are times I love Dana for sport altering decisions he makes and other times ,( as shown by this uncharacteristic rant) I can’t fucking stand him. I wanna see Overeem in the UFC and hopefully that’ll happen but if the Baldfather doesn’t fix this deal with Marloes, I’m not sure I can forgive him for breaking her heart. Now back to one liners while being burnt beyond recognition for me. Sorry for wall o text But fuck Marloes is awesome, has heart and deserves better.

    Its called negotiating. In this case one of the tools available for all sides to use is public disinformation.

    We dont know and will never know all the details. This is a dance and both sides try to play their individual violins in order to rally public support for their cause and apply additional pressure on the rival party. We are part of the dance and we lap it up like blind dogs.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Fuck the dance – Marloes deserved better.

    No matter what happened it just sounds like a pissing match that got out of hand.  As usual Dana is involved.

    Overeem belongs in the UFC.  I wouldn’t even mind if he got an immediate title shot cuz after Cain/JDS the HW division is looking shallow again.

  • frickshun

    Yes, the guy that was a mediocre LHW is now a super fucking dominant heavyweight monster. Would you dumbasses listen to yourselves?? The only reason this jackass would get a title shot is b/c it makes sense from a marketing standpoint. Certainly not based on any wins besides Werdum. I would love to see him get past a Bigfoot Silva before he even gets to fight a UFC guy.

    I was never on his jazz band bus & never will be.

  • CAP

    ^I was really looking forward to that Bigfoot fight.

  • frickshun

    Jazz Band Player is the new euphamism for darkie. I’m in.

  • iamphoenix

    Im always in for new words for mondays.
