While many might have seen Strikeforce founder Scott Coker, a former Zuffa employee, taking over the controls at Bellator MMA as a sort of defection, UFC president Dana White doesn’t see it that way.

    Why would he be a traitor? He was in the prize-fighting business way before Zuffa, and when they bought Strikerfoce, they just let his contract expire (or whatever the right term is). Just asking this kind of question is pretty stupid.

    I haven’t heard Coker’s name mentioned anywhere since a few weeks after SF was “absorbed” by the UFC. Oh crap…I just helped validate this thing as an actual article. Damn it…

    What kind of kiss-ass bitch reporter thinks Scott Coker getting involved with a non-zuffa promotion makes him a traitor? Last time I checked, he wasn’t married to the Fertittas brothers, nor is he their slave…

    Um, there’s a big difference between War and Business….but also lots of similarities ;)

    Even back when Scott Coker had Strikeforce and the org was doing really well, Dana was respectful toward him. Knowing Dana, that says a lot about Scott.

    Dana never had anything bad to say about Scott.

    Uncle Dana always spoke highly of Scott.

    Coming from Dana that means a lot.

    Even though Strikeforce was bought everything was quite positive.

    Scott’s contract expired and Zuffa chose not to renew so Scott found work elsewhere.

    Good for Coker.

    Always a great guy and down to earth.
