He was fighting a heavyweight, and Starnes is a middleweight.

Of course he regrets it. That's all he will ever be remembered for

I'd have more sympathy for Kalib Starnes if he took accountability for running in that fight. Even if he kinda made a B.S. excuse like, "I was feeling really sick that day so I ran, it was a pretty pathetic fight." But I don't believe he has and so forever it will be the elephant in the room. By him ignoring it, not addressing it, it actually highlights it more.

Probably every day of his life. I believe he was protesting because he couldn't afford health insurance as he was a fighter and no one would cover him.

Which is kind of silly because I think that's something you're supposed to understand when becoming a prize-fighter, and funnily enough now the UFC offers that full health insurance.

Should have just ran a few years longer.

HW has a lot of guys who could be MWs if they wanted to diet a little bit and then cut weight. Starnes is not a small guy. Isn't he 6'3"?
