Pro athletes all over the world deal with it everyday. Why cant Cormier?

So... if you were a fighter, you would be an self-entitled diva like DC.

Good to know TS.

Most athletes don't have the same value loss/gain from a single event that fighters do.

Most competitive sports have matchmaking that isn't offered subjectively by a promoter.

I have a feeling he make take his camp back to the states after the next Sweden fight anyway, since he is likely to fight Bones in the U.S. or Canada. DC should probably fight Phil for his first fight at 205 since people want to know how effective his wrestling will be at LHW. Phil is the best test for him to see if he is ready for Jones imo.
His camp has always been in Sweden. He travels to San Diego to train more intensely for some of his matches, but his base is in Sweden. He still maintains his ties with Alliance.

yeah, you are right, a fighter with a 13-0 record with 3 top ten wins should really just quit if he prefers (not demands) to fight at home.
