"DirecTV wanted to take Versus away from 6 million subscribers who were receiving it for no additional cost. That was simply not acceptable for us. We hope to resolve things amicably, but that's a non-starter." Davis, noting that the network wasn't called by the DBS operator late Monday that it was about to be "turned off," said there haven't been any discussions since the service was disconnected Tuesday morning. For its part, DirecTV has said the parties had disagreed about price, claiming the Comcast-owned Versus was seeking a 20% hike in license fees. "Those increases aren't true," said Davis. "We're simply asking them to pay what the other providers are paying."

Faber On Warren Beating Kid: "Joe came down here and trained with us for about a week and a half, and he was pretty raw when he came down here," Faber said. "But people are forgetting that he's been doing some of the most difficult training for pretty much his whole life. He's been one of the top guys in the world in one of the most difficult sports. So I wasn't that surprised he won. ... I thought it would go one of two ways: Either Kid Yamamoto would knock him out, or Joe Warren would win by decision, and Joe pulled it out." Faber said he thinks Warren is unlikely to leave Dream for the WEC or any other American promotion any time soon, because he thinks Warren could make more money fighting for Dream than he would in the WEC. "I think he'll probably stay in Japan," Faber said. "He's got a personality that I think could really catch on in Japan, and I think he's got a good thing going out there. American promotions aren't as good at paying people. Japan is better, especially for guys who are up-and-coming. I think Joe Warren is there to make some money."
