10:04 AM ET 09.25 | Todd Duffee was expected to face Jon Madsen this October at UFC 121 but was forced out of the bout with a knee injury and was cut from the organization sometime afterwards. Dana White revealed to Helwani the impetus to cut the promising fighter. "We have the ability to cut a guy when he loses a fight. He lost that fight [against Mike Russow], but the biggest problem I have with Todd Duffee is his attitude," White revealed. "You guys don't see it. You don't know. I deal with tons of guys. We have hundreds of guys under contract and I've had thousands of guys under contract over the last ten years and Todd Duffee, to me, doesn't seem like he wants to be in the UFC.

I thought Dana was a girls name, but watching him be such a ... it's obvious that Dana IS a girl's name.

That is why Dana is the best fight promoter in the business and yes I am a total boxing fan. He is not going to let the monkeys control the assylum as the way its done in the sport of boxing. Boxing can learn somthing from UFC by putting the best fights on the table. I am so tired of Mayweather I dont care to see him fight again until he fights Paqman, the greatest pound for pound boxer in the game.

Funny how it's always the other guy, and not dana white, that has the attitude problem.
