How come Paige VanZant isn't getting the equal amount of hate for ducking like other fighters do?

    Sherdog loves to hate on pretty much every other fighter for ducking but then PVZ comes along and ducks Shevchenko and now all of the sudden Sherdog is supportive or hush about it. What gives?

    Wasn't there a huge thread about her turning the fight down?

    Because her manager did their job for once. She has absolutely no business fighting Schevchenko

    Because literally no one takes her seriously as a fighter...


    The T-shirt says it all...

    There was. Well, large relative to WMMA. But you know the routine. This is the usual thread where someone claims some fighter isn't getting enough hate despite there being two hate threads on the first page. Cousin to the thread where someone lumps the entirety of Sherdog together and accuses people of hypocrisy on a completely divided issue.

    Nobody in their right mind thinks PVZ should be matched up against Shevchenko. It's insane.

    PVZ coming up from 115, Shevchenko moving down from just fighting for the title at 135.

    #2 fighter two weight classes above fighting someone ranked outside the top 10? No thanks.

    Because things in this universe don't exist in a vacuum where given variables A, B, and C, you can say, "well those variables existed in this other case, and they exist here, so why can't we equate them?"

    Because it doesn't work that way. There's a hundred other variables you haven't considered, such as attractiveness, personality, success and lack thereof, to name a few.

    And yet you've boiled it down to simply the one variable of: ducking.

    Not a vacuum. The world doesn't work that way, never has, and never will.

    I'm sure others are already saying it, but PVZ is not champ and she's not holding up a division on account of not fighting. In fact, her not fighting only influences her and maybe Jessica Eye who has reason to expect that said bout would happen. If PVZ opted to never step into the cage in 2018 it would not impact rankings, it would not impact championship bouts, etc.

    Plus she gets plenty of (unjust in my opinion) hate like many other fighters..
