    And now people are saying Mighty Mouse is ducking because he won't go up in weight to fight TJ.

    Have you even read this whole thread, my previous responses will make you shut the fuck up.

    What are the examples of champs refusing to fight someone in their own division based on WANTING MORE MONEY ABOVE THEIR CURRENT CONTRACT to fight them?

    I am not aware of such a demand.

    It makes no sense as what is the contract for other than to fight contenders in your division? I get it entirely if the UFC is asking something other than what should be expected (such as CW) as the UFC is hoping to cash in and therefore I don't blame the fighter for saying 'give me something extra'.

    But if the new bar to not fighting someone making weight in your division is simply saying I want $X more to fight him than that is truly ducking.

    Imagine if Woodley said going forward I won't fight any top 10 WW unless I get at least $2MM more on top of my contract than I get otherwise. If you wont pay that then I will only fight guys below top 10 to keep building my title defenses record up.

    they certainly allow you to improve those things by healing old injuries and allowing for faster recovery time and more training and increasing strength and other physical attribute areas.

    Striking skills and all areas of athleticism are not just gifts of magic. They are a direct result of athleticism which is a direct result of natural gifts PLUS training things like strength, balance, speed, etc and steroids impact all the latter.

    How do you know they didn't want to pay him enough? What's enough money for a midget bum no one cares about? He had a chance to make a name for himself and chose to fight another anonymous name. And who the fuck said they should fight next week? The little mutt hasn't even had the balls to reply to a direct call-out. Pathetic.

    Silva, along with every brasil fighter, except for Big Nog, has been popped for roids and has tainted his legacy, GSP has not, but I dont think he is clean himself

    Is that your way to try make a point? Instead of showing evidence to support your case you insult people? Clearly shows you lack any imagination and intelligence. Have a nice night :)

    what evidence do you need?
    I mean do you even have any point, or your whole defense is to demand people to get you "evidence"?

    1) Dana lies all the time. this is not news. if you want evidence, you are just too stupid to not know it by now.
    2)DJ does not have a reason to lie. If you think he does, then you are the one who needs to provide evidence.

    Silva and Jones refuse to fight clean but are considered by some to be the GOAT

    GSP didn’t fight Silva.

    Silva didn’t fight Jones.

    Jones didn’t fight at HW.

    Fedor turned down Bob Sapp (true, according to Nog)



    Oh, I almost forgot MM refused to accept a fight with TJ, at 125 lbs.

    TJ was going to meet him in his division. But i don't blame MM for not taking the fight. Now that he beat Silva's title defenses he might be tempted to take more dangerous fights though.

    I don't remember either GSP Or Silva refusing to fight someone in their own division, thread is stupid and ignorant about the facts. TJ has repeatedly said that he wants to go to 125

    To be fair ... GSP was being asked to move up and fight Silva at a size disadvantage.
    Silva was being asked to move up and fight Jones who already makes LHW's look small ... at a size disadvantage.


    Mighty Mouse wasn't asked to move up to fight TJ.
    TJ said he would come DOWN to MM's division.

    Mighty Mouse who prior to this always said "I don't care who I fight" ... now all the sudden cared about who he fought.

    Mighty Mouse did in fact duck a worthy opponent in HIS WEIGHT CLASS.

    As for money ... I think MM knows damn well he gets paid more than he is worth.

    He gets 400-500k show money when he is not a draw at all for the company. So why risk getting that much money potentially losing his title to TJ when he could just keep beating easier opponents and making big money.

    Well he asked for it by refusing to fight a worthy opponent in HIS OWN WEIGHT CLASS.

    DJ makes more money than he is worth fighting no name guys while not drawing money to the company.

    He should be thankful.
