Seriously, though if the Diaz bros had Cerrone's attitude, how many amazing fights would be of seen in the last year alone? Not to mention all the other fighters who pick who they fight, or sit out for half a year at a time. I'm not talking about injured fighters, most of the time there isn't much you can do about that.

If every fighter was like Fedor the UFC would either be out of business and replaced by promoters who were willing to give power to the fighter or have done so themselves.

In terms of in ring/cage fighting attitude Fedor was very similar to Cerrone, rarely did he look to play it safe.

guys who won't fight until the contract they signed is reworked? so they don't fight? that makes sense

Love the fact that Cerrone is always fighting. He must have one of the highest fight/year ratio since 2010 among top 10 guys.

But each case is different. I bet a lot of guys would do the same if they managed to stay healthy, but it's not like they choose to get hurt.

Of course some fighters talk more than they fight, some champions included.
