    the question is...
    why did he agree to it in the first place?
    the fight was just announced

    He must be setting some kind of record for having been signed with the UFC the longest without actually fighting (TUF doesn't count as it's not a UFC contract).

    A fever is an acceptable reason to pull out of a fight less than 5 days before it. But Almost a month? No. Sorry Akira.

    this dude expects a fever to hinder him for the next month?

    I'm confused as shit about this one.

    Dude always rubbed me the wrong way...this horrifically lame excuse doesn't help matters.

    time for the axe.

    He probably never accepted it then, someone could have leaked the offered deal, just saying.

    He fought in September, sir.


    I do agree with the overall sentiment, the guy seems hurt/sick all the time.

    This is like the 4th or 5th time he's pulled out and I'm sorry but a fever?

    My little brother played a football game with a fever when he was 10
