Ever since Tom Atencio burst into the spotlight earlier this year, he’s always been the nice guy when dealing with the media. You could always tell it was something new for him to be fielding questions from reporters, and it often resulted in a lot of contradictions and confusion. He was essentially the opposite of Dana White, and while his contradictions will probably keep happening unless Affliction can actually get their shit together, you may notice in this round table interview that his nice guy attitude is starting to change. Tom is finally growing a pair. He basically calls out nearly every member of the Fox New Fight Game panel for comments they made about Affliction on a previous round table. Good stuff, Tom. A fight promoter doesn’t need to take it to the extreme Dana does, but they do have to have a little fight in them and that’s just not something I’ve seen out of him before. Keep it up, Tom.
