"It's part of the learning process...We were too focused on making this perfect for broadcast on HDNet in coming weeks. We need to make it more focused for fans in the arena. We aren't in a rush. It doesn't have to happen overnight. I think people forget that unlike other promoters, I control the entire value and business chain. From the arena to the TV network, to DVD sales and even broadcasting to theaters. Each fight provides programming for the entire chain. Unlike others I'm not dependent on a TV deal or TV ratings for our future. I can take my time and do it right."
