With all the Chael Sonnen references to "Uncle" Dana White lately, it got me to thinking: Who are the UFC's biggest company men? Who are the fighters who seem most likely to parrot Uncle Dana and/or toe the company line in public?
Let me start by saying, being a nephew of Dana is not a knock. In fact, most of the folks on this list are pretty savvy and know which side their bread is buttered on.
Reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Jon Jones seemed well on his way to being on this list, as he was even appearing in some UFC commercial spots with the likes of Arianny Celeste in the weeks BEFORE he beat Shogun.
But you don't say no to Uncle Dana, and when he did that recently by declining to fight Chael Sonnen at UFC 151, even golden boy Jon Jones quickly found out that Dana is a vengeful and angry God. He then was trashed by his boss and thrown under the bus in the way only Dana White could do.
But to quote Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, you don't get mad at your money, and I have to imagine that fighter Jon Jones, like Anderson Silva, is just a couple of performances away from being welcomed back into Dana's good graces—if he still wants to be there.
It didn't take too too long for The Spider to get back there after he stopped putting on his dancing exhibitions and got back to whooping people. And it didn't hurt that Chael Sonnen pretty much made him the good guy by default—put him back over—if you will.
So now, with no further adieu, I present Dana White's Top 5 Super Golden Nephews..
