Who's the alpha in UFC? Like, as a guy that runs the show, Dana. Dana's an alpha, by the way. Is it even a question that he's an alpha? No, he's the guy. You don't tell Dana, 'Better this, better that.' What are you talking about? You go build a company from 2 million into a $10 billion company, with all the bullsh*t every time you're being criticized, taking shots. He's the alpha. He'll take the arrows, he'll go after it, he'll do all of that.
