    Huh? Guys throw there mouthpiece all the time. Dana’s running out ways to show his fragile ego is the boss?

    • BlackLesnar

      Dana has no control over the Ohio Athletic Commission, but he still has a big ego.

      • Sir_Roy

        Few people don’t. Some simply walk softly, and carry a big stick. It denotes a huge ego all the same. Hard to be successful in today’s dog eat dog world without having an over inflated ego. It happens, but it’s rare.

        I have yet to work with a president in business who’s ego was not as grandiose as his pocket book. The two seem to go hand in hand all too often.

      People are so dumb that they don’t even know what they are complaining about. The commissions handle the medical suspensions

  • Nogfan

    That literally means nothing. Johnny Eduardo is probably going to fight in the next 3 months so a month away without a fight really
    means nothing. Still agree that Dana White is a douche though.

    • Maddawgmar

      Dana didn’t suspend him… That penalty was handed out by the Ohio state athletic commission.

  • bones lamarco

    What does it all mean?.They can anywhere in USA except Ohio?

    • Maddawgmar

      No, they can’t fight under another commission while under suspension in one commission.

  • tony

    Means nothing, pretty much all fighters get some kind of medical suspension, its just to make sure they are healthy before their next fight, if you get KO’d your automatically suspended for i think 60 days
