    I’m starting to feel like we’ve been hard enough on Mair.

    Yes, the guy was a bit too gung ho and had a “we’re taking over this fucking business” attitude even tho he didn’t have a clue. And that attitude coupled with no experience whatsoever did a lot of damage in a short time.

    But maybe he’ll slow it down and learn as he goes and contribute positively in the future.

    It’s great to call guys out if you truly think their actions are harmful, and myself and a few others did that here.

    Maybe time to let it go now and give the guy an opportunity to try to do some positive things and even out the scales.

    I think I’m gonna. Best of luck to him goin forward.

    Having said that I think its good if people be watch dogs and call people out for doing harm.
    If I fuck up I want people going after me too to the fighters and the sport.

    But time to think positive now.

  5. I think a group of people were unprepared to run a show. Not the fault of anyone in particular.

    I think people who run shows should be prepared to run these shows well and be prepared to take heat and answer questions when shit like this happens. Youre messing with fighter’s fkn careers here, not to mention their bank accounts.

    Guys like this, should maybe learn a little more about what has to be done before he realizes what he’s gotten himself and everyone else into requires a lot more work then what he thought or is capable of doing.

  8. well said Eric Perez.

    If they are ready to bask in the glory of the success of the show, you need to be ready to speak for any setbacks.

    Thankfully you don’t have to worry bout this stuff happening :)
