Default Who's the better businessman?

Dana White and Vince Mcmahon both control the PPV world in a close race with boxing. Each do their part to gain the most fans and PPV buys and to sell out each event they have. Vince took over the business from his dad and since then has made a very large profit from WWE. He has acheived key milestones and is a self proclaimed billionaire. He has bought several organizations to eliminate further competition and has gained marketable success. Dana White on the other hand has turned MMA from a little known sport to popular sport. He was put in as predident of the UFC after Zuffa decided to buy the UFC and make it progress in ways that aren't imaginable. In 2006, the UFC broke all previous PPV records for the most single year revenue with more then $220,000,000 passing both boxing and the WWE. It's mainstream emergence was quickly felt in the world of PPV competition. The UFC has also had their share of buying out competition to decline the rise of any competition. From these two mega giants in PPV, who is the better businessman, Vince or Dana and why?

McMahon wins based on length of service. I like White much better but he has started to annoy me recently.

Well it wouldn't be fair because Vince has been around longer but Dana is getting there.

Dana proved himself capable of taking a fledgling enterprise and lifting it into orbit, but now that the thing's gotten as big as it has he has shown himself utterly inept at adapting to changing circumstances and quelling mishaps imo.

Dana is the best business man because he pays his fighters very little.

Actually he is about $250,000,000 away from it. He claims he is but he put his business on the stock market. He is still rich and he shouldn't ever complain but he isn't a billionaire
