Ariel's Dana White Interview on why Miguel Torres cut, Rashad/Forrest not

I watched it and I think he is a liar. I love Dana but he is definitely playing favorites and Miguel is being used as a scapegoat.

I watched the conference and Dana is lying because he heard the Rashad joke and laughed at it. He knows Forrest and Rashad are his money makers. Forrest is loved by the fans, Rashad is a potential huge ppv with Jones, etc.

It was easy to use Torres right now as the scapegoat to show the "media" that the UFC doesnt take this lightly. Dana even says in the Ariel interview, that he called Rashad and Forrest himself to speak on what they did but for Miguel though he had one of his "people" contact him. Why not contact Miguel directly? I dont like Torres at all but he got screwed and is simply being used by zuffa

havent heard the interview yet but they definitely made an example of rat tail boy.

If Bones had made the same comment as Torres, Dana would have brushed it off and said anyone who called him out on it was an asshole.

Watched the video. I agree with everything Dana said for the most part,, but just not the end result. He talks to the two other guys and is somehow surprised that they are able to rationalize their actions, but doesn't feel the other could do the same.

He's definitely playing favorites, if you look at all the things said, Rashad's was the worst given Phil actually went to Penn State.

Rashad went to Michigan State, not Michigan.

Dana keeps getting it wrong in all the interviews.
