Who Were The Fighters That Turned Down Patrick Cummins?

We keep hearing over and over Patrick Cummins had 40 to 50 fights cancelled or turned down because fighters didn't want to face him --- yet he wasn't in the UFC until now.

Who were these fighters? Which organizations? When was this?

Where is the investigative journalism to double check some of these claims?

He's such a feared fighter that no major organization wanted him so he had to find work in a coffee shop. Ever heard the expression "he's too good for his own good"?

Fedor was signed up to fight him but M-1 wanted to co-promote.

By that logic, Fedor would have been a coffee server in Russia and never entered MMA. They have coffee in Russia, right?

I really doubt all these regional fighters even scout their opponents that closely. If Henry Cejudo who is an olympic gold medalist is getting fights on the regionals then..
