Dana White wants to fuck Cage Potato

When pictures of Arianny’s Playboy photoshoot appeared on CagePotato, I wisely decided I’d let them keep that exclusive since we don’t have a legal department to forward on vindictive lawsuits from the UFC or Playboy. It turned out to be a good call, as they not only got a call from a UFC employee telling them to take that shit down but a second call from Dana White himself declaring he’s going to “fuck them”:

So the next day, saturday, around 2PM the phone rings [...] “This is Ben, who are you trying to reach?” And the person on the phone says “I’m trying to reach you. This is Dana White” There’s a bit of a pause and it starts to sink in that this is not going to be good. And I’m like “Heeeeey Dana” [...] And the first thing he says is “What kind of scumbag are you?” I was kinda stunned a bit[...]I knew I was gonna have to take a beating over the phone so I tried to apologize about the situation but there’s not much you could say. I put the pics up and took em down when we were asked and its behind us now. But he wasn’t really looking for an apology he just wanted to yell at me for 20 seconds. So he calls me a scumbag, he told me to go fuck myself, he actually said something like “How could you do that to this poor girl” which I almost laughed at. And then the capper, and I’m just listening, sitting there. And he says at the end, I quote “I’m gonna fuck you up worse than you’ve ever been fucked before.”

Now it’s interesting to consider what that’s gonna be about. I don’t think there’s one MMA website on the internet that couldn’t be sued by the UFC if they really got a hard-on to do it. We all have shifty videos or unlicensed pictures floating around on our servers, after all. Or maybe he just plans on blackballing them, barring them from shows, promo events, and expos. Too bad – ” target=”_blank”>that CagePotato punching machine looked like a lot of fun.

Whatever he does, it’s never good to be on Dana’s shitlist. But if he spent less time fighting the internet and annihilating fan sites for imagined slights, he might understand how the game works: big sites runs shitty shots (literally a picture of a picture), publisher sends standard cease and desist form already prepared for just this sort of occassion, and the photos go down. Fanboys look for tittehs but oh shit they got taken down and I wanna see em even more now! We all leave with blue balls and a hightened anticipation for seeing Arianny naked. Everyone wins. This is how it’s rolled for every Playboy issue anyone on the internet has ever wanted to see, and it’s about the best form of advertising the magazine can get.

But instead all Dana sees is a parasite trying to make some money out of the UFC, Arianny and Playboy. It’s basically how he sees most MMA websites, which is pretty fucking bullshit since MMA websites carried MMA through the dark ages and still play a major role in covering the sport and encouraging it’s growth. Dana should be fucking glad that a major player like Break is investing money into promoting the sport. Instead it sounds like he plans on trying to grind them into the dust.

  • subo

    Yeah, I just can’t imagine why Dana would be angry about that.

  • G Funk

    Fuck Dana Weasel White and all blind company nuthugging mofos!

  • CRM_Stephen

    Egotastic had a ton of the Playboy pics up in all their HQ glory, but they’re gone today.

  • Letibleu

    if you wanna see *it* and you have not yet, here are simple instructions.

    Go to your favorite torrent site ie *iso* or search using your favorite client software ie *vuze* and look up “playboy november”.

    If you are so much inclined to look, there is someone that somehow got about 30 unpublished pictures of the shoot of *it* of which are a little more raunchy. The unpublished photos dont have any mods made such as her missing tattoo.

    Enjoy :)

  • mmariusp

    How the UFC is going to become the fight version of NFL with Dana in charge is beyond me, do you ever see Roger Goodell calling patspulpit and yelling he is “gonna fuck you up worse than you’ve ever been fucked before.”

    And yes, you can´t say nothing about Dana without saying he´s done a lot for the UFC and the “sport” so there you have it.

    He should worry about other things.

  • YEAH RIGHT

    Subo is siding with dana white???!?!?!? What???

    I think this write up is pretty solid.

    Also, cagepotato is catching alot of shit lately, cheick kongo also put CP on his shitlist: http://www.cagepotato.com/great-now-cheick-kongo-hates-us-too

    which, depending on who you are, isnt that bad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEcAI-wzUbY

  • mmariusp

    Subo is siding with dana white???!?!?!? What???

    It didn´t mean it in an ironic way did he?

  • subo

    To pretend that Ben didn’t know what he was doing was wrong is just silly.

  • mmariusp

    So you think Dana acted right by handling the situation this way. fantastic

    It bothers me that you are one of the contributors at MMA Consensus rankings, with your opinions and the blind love of everything Dana/Zuffa/UFC does, is it really possibly you can give fighters outside of the UFC a fear chance.

    About DANA on topic
    I think it´s fucking tragic that a man who controls so many fighters future shows so many flaws.

  • fightlinker

    No one’s pretending that. Everyone is just amazed that Dana White wants to personally crush anyone that he thinks is fucking with his business, and that includes sites like CagePotato which are obviously good for the sport.

  • Narcisist

    This is the best way to explain how this works, because I have received several of these cease and desist letters, takedown notices, “I’m not a scumbag and I am going to sue you” threatening letters and at the end of the day everyone goes happy.

    Titties appear on site, Buzz is created, DMCA and Cease and desist letters go out, we get a spike in traffic and the magazine’s sales spike (We make some extra tens of dollars off the ad impressions and can support our nasty glue sniffing habbit a little more).

    No one is trying to screw Dana, he just takes it personal all the time.

  • subo

    “Buzz is created”? How many people you think saw the photos and said “well damn, now I’ll be extra sure to buy that issue”?

    Dana wasn’t screwed by this. Arrianny unquestionably was. And I looked at the damn pictures online because they were there and who wants to fucking pay for an entire magazine just to get pictures of bewbs? I took money out of her pocket and got to see her naked for free. Doesn’t mean I feel good about it.

  • Narcisist

    @Subo, Buzz was created by leaking the pictures. We had a 200% overall spike in anything titled “Arianny” and “Playboy”. I agree with you about Arianny getting screwed, because there is no one that can argue that point.

    But overall the magazine probably benefited from the pictures being leaked as well because they could no longer be found on the usual suspect websites. Websites and Blogs received notice right away that they would be dealing with Playboy, the UFC and Arianny’s lawyers if they posted the pictures.

    If you go back to Rachelle Leah’s Playboy pictures, you can find them rather easily and no DMCA or Cease and desists letters were sent out. The UFC made it known this time around that they will not let it happen to Arianny.

    Me personally, I wasn’t buying the magazine because I was not going to spend money on it no matter what. I like Arianny, but jerking off to a Playboy magazine when X-Videos and a ton of tube site are out there seems so…..1999.

  • kwagnuth

    I tried to look but they were gone already but if I did get a glimpse of those huge mungos I would never have felt bad or guilty til after I had a wank.

    Seriously though I would never part with my money to buy the mag either way what are they like 10.00 or something. That’s half the price of a previously viewed porno dvd.

    Also Dana can fuck the hell out of CP but we all know he will just be closing his eyes thinking about Sherdog.

  • P W

    mmariusp is spot on. Dana shows again why he, as a boxercise instructor, can only take the company so far, due to lack of management skills. Was it last year that the UFC basically had to shut down operations because Dana was on vacation? And now he’s doing an intern a at law firm’s job?

  • dawgbone

    Narcisist, and once you take the material covered in the cease and desist letters down does it ever stop you from doing it again?

    Of course not.

    That’s inherently the problem.

    “Awww shucks, I’m awfully sorry” has been the way to skirt things for years on the internet. Cagepotato knew exactly what they were doing and knew exactly how illegal it was and did it anyways.

    Why? Because the worst that would happen is a letter. There were absolutely no consequences for the action and that’s the exact reason why people do it. Content theft on the internet is a huge fucking problem and it literally costs corporations billions each year.

  • frickshun

    Dawgbone might be the only adult on this freaking site besides me.

  • variable

    This is just typical Dana, nothing really surprising. Right or wrong Dana sees this as someone fucking with his people and he doesn’t like it. I’m also not so sure its fair to say Arianny was screwed by websites publishing the pics. (again not condoning it)

    My understanding is that the typical playboy contract even for so called celebs is a flat rate fee, and it is not based on numbers of product moved. That being the case she wouldn’t be compensated any differently if the mag sold none or a million issues.

    Playboy on the other hand probably has a legit gripe about this. On a side note how the fuck is playboy still even in business with all the free porn on the net?

    Undoubtedly, cp fucked up and did something unnecessary (there are a million other ways to find this online) and sleazy (trying to get more hits on the site by stealing content) . I think on principle this should be between them and playboy without Dana’s interference. Still, in terms of content and value added to the mma community I couldn’t give 2 shits if cp went away tomorrow.

  • dawgbone

    ^ There are still a lot of old men who haven’t bothered to figure out the internet yet.

    Same reason why adult DVD’s are still able to sell.

I explained to her, lying out in China, it is not easy to state, on business, I have not that opportunity; their own expense, travel,hublot watches, I did not that condition, I am referring to the time and cost. But she would not listen, just kept complaining I do not want to approach, what a wayward girl.

    but did not expect, the opportunity finally came. The original company to import a LXZ device, After many discussions and ultimately selected the company’s products Rhone Cir. Because equipment worth tens of millions of dollars, so the company’s president, Mr. Ronald Silver to China to personally lead a delegation to the negotiations,wow gold, reached an agreement of intent. Before the formal signing of the contract, other invited us to their company for technical inspection. Zhang Zongfu women members of the delegation, translation Chen and I, a total of 4 people, led by the General Zhang. Was originally not for me to go, may have important technical director in the body, there is no time for me to replace him so they go out. Zhang and Wang is Director of the Office lover, this is nominally the secretary, in fact, traveling abroad at public expense, which is China’s practice. But Wang is still full of the passion of man by man, and not his wife, general manager of the shelf.

    the news I told Luna that she heard after the ecstatic, on the phone to arrange for me in Paris itinerary.

    \to have three days with me. \When they left, I would like to know the instrument in the French companies operating essentials, but these can not be said with the Luna, so she complications.

    \

    \\> \What strange things, then decided not to tell her when to leave and return home. Wait until the get out of France, I find her, the party passed a day or two to meet. I think this is better than at home, a better deal in trouble, if it got him into trouble in foreign countries to harder to resolve.

    two days before departure, translation Chen suddenly got appendicitis, to stay in hospital surgery, which erupted blindsided us. Zhang asked if I could act as translator, I said I was okay in English, French, but know nothing about. Translation is too late to find temporary and had to notify the other party, ask them in France to find a suitable person. Because the inspection by the other party pay all costs, this time we went to a few people, then they find a translator, the other party does not suffer the total.

    result is that only three of us go, good news on the Air France plane with a Chinese flight attendants now, so there is no way inconvenience. After the plane, take the luggage, immigration procedures after finishing just out of Charles de Gaulle airport, I heard someone call: \I kissed them live. Erupted in the Zhang Zongfu women dreadfully puzzled, I look closely, turned out to be Luna.

    \come? \Do not you introduce me to your boss do? \She was sent to pick us up each other’s translation. Zhang was very happy he has been worried about the translation problem was solved. Then he praised Luna speaks Chinese very well, Luna is very proud of. Wang to take advantage of their greetings on the occasion, pulled me aside and quietly interrogated me.

    \? so clever? you what is the relationship with her? \say you Litongwaiguo what are you afraid. Sister care about you, know a Foreign Babes to step up a little. \relations. Besides, I’m married, you are not do not know? \br> Luna drove us to the Hilton hotel, arranged accommodation, went to my room.

    \

    \in advance to tell me. \Tell me. but I already know the companies you want to access the company Rhone Sears to ask where one is not all clear on what? My translation of your windfall is sick, so my Chinese students to naturally became the company’s temporary translation. I think that maybe God wants. \know why I want to do this? \

    \Do not you do man, I want you to do a woman. I like the way you dress up a woman. \So it is. She liked this man is not me, she is my favorite \Then I recalled the words of Mr. Lu Xun, the effect that: once people appreciate the men and the performances of different genders have different psychological feelings, women saw \the feeling of the opposite sex. Luna is probably feeling now is so be it. Rona Sears

    we really nervous a few days the company, visit the factory production line every day to see the drawings, talk about technical details, too busy, thanks to Luna this translation, or with my English, figure out specific problems. Relatively easy the last two days that will officially signed a contract the next day,omega watches, the company said the celebration in order to prepare the night before the signing, held a dance to entertain us. Information is passed over by the Luna, and she pointed to the fine print invitations, translated for us: \go, Xiaoxiang Well, I had to stay with him from the jump. \On the other hand, they are Wumi couple times a night to dance, and now have the opportunity to participate in Western dance, for them is a rare treat.

    Luna and I are chatting in the room, it seemed very happy, because Zhang them back, I also spent ten days in France. In the rest of the time, she would accompany me to visit and do some \I asked her a long time, she did not reveal any news, just a naughty look. When the phone rang, and Luna Zhang me to his room to look, that is something to discuss.

    \

    \is berberine, cures diarrhea, I’ll bring. \I took medicine to

    Wang, and comforted her: \experience, how have two days, mainly your big brother. \, and really not the time, cough! \the ball. \He does not participate, and more inappropriate. He did not want to damage the atmosphere of a contract do not affect the day after tomorrow. \look, see if I can ask a student or a Chinese-funded institutions who accompany him to dance one night? \. \

Then I made up my mind: \to return to the room. Wang came to see us come in to yell down on us: \is this thing. Deputy Director Wang, I have discussed Xiaoxiang, and to the overall situation, in order to contribute to the final success of the negotiations, Xiaoxiang willing to sacrifice hue, accompanied Zhang to the ball. \quite understand, can you speak more clearly you? \\

    \

    \. \Luna back to me the dress off, and then gave me a tight-fitting vest. This vest is very short, only the waist and upper abdomen, but after the opening. Openings on each side a row of holes, you can wear the rope. I took it around the waist and abdomen, Luna behind my back, like the rope back and forth like a tie shoes to wear in the holes in the eyes, and then forced to tighten, I suddenly felt tight waist was hoop. Not eaten for two meals, the stomach is empty inside, so the start is very easy to tighten. Was relatively close to a certain degree of effort, so Luna I inhale smoke every time I gas, she tightened a rope. Luna can not my waist is still too small, let me lie on the carpet, over and over again said to me: \hard to tighten the rope. I feel attached to the back and chest have been to the breaking point, could not help shouting: \hands blasted a close before the end of my suffering. When she finished things up for me, I have not even had the strength to get back up again. She kicked my ass and says loudly: \. \became a type of gourd, and then put on dress, and she is very close, but the chest is flat, not propped up. I walked slowly toward the dressing table was just about to sit down, Luna and spoke up: \

    she brought a cardboard box placed in front of me, I am puzzled and asked: \

Between the two breasts of a deep cleavage,replica watches, won a fish can be released. Ah! I really want to keep a fish between two peaks, in which it restlessness, sliding. I touched the fingertips about the breast, sudden as electric shock, an indescribable pleasure, as from the nipple quickly spread around to make some changes with the lower abdomen. I boldly stroked back and forth with the palm of your hand two breasts, feeling the soft, creamy, a short while, I found it firm up a little nipple is also a convex.

    I glanced in the mirror, a graceful beautiful girl, do not, it should be said to be a beautiful young woman is shy with the smell of urine in watching me. I looked at the water slide the Fenlian financial light, my mind suddenly flashed qing Ningguo Dream in the image. I think she fantasyland with Jia fugue before, it looks like it should be a pretty pair. Only the upper body bare to reveal a pair of towering breasts, do not be tempted Jia is? I shook my head, like a swing as the two earrings dangling and gently touched his face, and my heart there is a strange feeling. It appears that this sexy, coquettish, dissolute and a bit like the quiet beauty of the Third Sister Zhen Jia was hooked. I looked at the mirror in the half-naked journeying lewd Angels, hearts imagination, a long time refused to leave the Mirror.

    Before leaving, we went through, did not find any flaws.

    Revealing Strike – An instant attack that causes 100% of your weapon damage and increases the effectiveness of your next mbt shoes finishing move on that target by 20% for 15 seconds. Awards 1 combo point. Costs 40 Energy.

    New Passive Talents:
    Patch 4.0.1 – Latest Additions:

    In recent builds a few additional new talents were added,wow gold, and other talents were tweaked to balance out the trees. Subtlety was particularly affected as it was in need of some additional buffs.

    Energetic Recovery – It’s back! This Subtlety talent was present in some of the very early Beta builds but was subsequently removed. This talent empowers your Recuperate ability, causing its periodic effect to also restore 4 Energy per talent point. (3 points)

    Find Weakness – This talent was added to the Sublety tree as a player vs. player consideration. Sub Rogues have long had a major problem dealing damage to high armor targets which made the spec useless for nearly all of Wrath of the Lich King. Find Weakness goes a long way towards removing that deficiency. The talent causes your Ambush, Garrote, and Cheap Shot abilities to reveal a flaw in your target’s defenses, causing all your attacks to bypass 25% per talent point of that enemy’s armor for 10 sec. (2 points)

    Coup de Grace – This talent replaced Improved Eviscerate in tier 1 of the Assassination tree, and truthfully it’s a bit of a stretch to even call this a new talent. Rogues had been complaining that Eviscerate is useless for Assassination Rogues and that Improved Eviscerate had no place in the Assassination tree. In reponse,wow gold, Blizzard removed the 20% Envenom damage from Vile Poisons, slapped it onto Improved Eviscerate and renamed it Coup de Grace. In the end nothing changed other than making this tier 1 talent a mandatory pickup for most specs.

    Assassination:

    Deadly Momentum – After killing an opponent that yields experience or honor, you have a 50% chance per talent point to increase the critical strike chance of your next attack within 10 sec by 40% and to refresh your Slice and Dice and Recuperate abilities to their original duration. (2 points)

    Blackjack – Even after your Sap wears off its effects linger on enemies reducing their damage done by 35% per talent point for 8 sec. (2 points)

    Improved Expose Armor – Gives a 50% chance per talent point to refund all combo points used when performing your Expose Armor ability. (2 points)

    Murderous Intent – When you Backstab an enemy that is below 35% health you instantly recover 15 energy per talent point. (3 points)

    Venomous Wounds – Each time your Rupture or Garrote deals damage to an enemy that is afflicted by your poison, you have a 30% chance per talent point to deal an additional X Nature damage and to regain 10 energy. (2 points)

    Analysis:
    Rogues are in an interesting position. PvP wise many consider the trees to be a shambles. Too many talents that are deemed ‘necessary’ such as Dirty Tricks and Preparation are too deep in the Subtlety tree gucci handbags for any other spec to access them. As such, the PvP mobility issues that plague Rogues will be amplified for any Rogue that doesn’t spec into Subtlety. Blizzard has stated that they’re working on this.

    With the 41 point talent limit 21 points for Prep is now 10 too many for Combat and Assassination.

    Assassination received a lot of loving in the way of a simplified tree that lets them pick up all the must-have abilities and still have a couple points left over for flavor abilities. Murderous intent gives Rogues a pseudo-execute in the form of Backstab spam, this will require extensive testing to determining how worthwhile it is but it’s a step in the right direction. Venomous Wounds will also bring Rupture back into the Mutilate rotation, increasing the complexity of timer management for the spec. This is something that Rogues have been asking for since Patch 3.3. New utility abilities like Improved Expose Armor may not be perfect, but will add some flexibility to a spec that is often perceived as bringing very little to the table in terms of utility.

    In designing the Combat tree Blizzard has doubled down on the philosophy of balancing the tree around cooldown abilities. Combat has more ‘filler’ talents than either of the other trees, but gets compensation deep in the tree with Restless Blades and Bandit’s Guile. Both of these abilities represent massive DPS gains and add in some mechanics such as the Bandit’s Guile mechanic that will force Rogues to think about their rotations and targets. Improved Recuperation is also one of the big ‘must-have’ talents, particularly for PvP and is located in first tier Combat. Revealing Strike was the big new change for Combat which will force PvE and PvP Combat Rogues to have a dynamic combo point building rotation rather than mindlessly spamming Sinister Strike. This was a very welcome addition.

    Subtlety received very little in the way of changes. The general consensus is that Subtlety makes little sense in its current form. It doubles as the ‘finisher damage’ and bleeds tree and as the PvP mobility tree. These are not exactly complimentary abilities particularly when so much of Rogue PvP is balanced around CC that can be broken by bleeds. The tree itself was changed very little and is still loaded down with powerful cooldowns. The current state of Subtlety is dismaying for most Rogues who feel like the tree is hamstrung by its powerful cooldowns which are used to justify weak overall damage for the spec. There are very few interesting PvE talents in Subtlety either and no obvious reason to select the tree for that purpose.

    Updated: Analysis of Patch 4.0.1 Changes

    With the addition of Find Weakness and Energetic Recovery to the Subtlety toolkit, Subtlety is shaping up to be a PvP powerhouse. Being able to regain 12 energy per tick of recuperate (works out to an additional 4 Energy per second, a 40% increase to your base regeneration) is an incredibly strong ability and will basically make it necessary to keep recuperate up all the time. That’ll mean that you are running around regenerating 5% or more (depending on whether you invest in both Improved Recuperate and Quickening) every 3 seconds while generating obscene amounts of energy. That’s just your survivability, lets take a look at the damage. The newly added Glyph of Hemorrhage will apply a 24 second bleed every time you use Hemo which will effectively remove the need to use Rupture to maintain the Sanguinary Vein damage bonus (though Rogues will probably opt to use Rupture anyway since they can refresh it for free via Serrated Blades) — it’s simply another way to quickly ramp up your damage versus a target.

    Speaking of ramping up your damage, the damage buffs to Backstab caused it to actually do damage. This is a new concept for Rogues that started playing in Burning Crusade or later, but Backstab can output some serious damage and when Find Weakness is properly implemented it has the potential to take Rogue physical gucci handbags damage to levels that haven’t been seen since 3.0. All in all, Subtlety PvP right now is viable, dynamic, and will undoubtedly be the spec of choice for most Rogues in Cataclysm when it comes to player vs. player combat.

    Currently in 4.0.1 there isn’t much to be said for Combat. The damage is horrible, using Revealing Strike is a DPS loss and it is plagued by the same mobility issues that it has faced for all of WoTLK. Until they fix the damage values this spec is a write off and should be considered incomplete.

    here Dana White wants to fuck Cage Potato | Fightlinker.com. And I actually do have a couple
    of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks look as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I’d like to follow
    anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of
    the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get
    a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
