    Cormier needs to have surgery so there is no what ifs in the unlikely event he loses.

    Cormier doesn't know if he needs surgery because he hasn't had it checked yet. He just said he would postpone knee surgery if it turns out that he does need surgery.

    The ole good cop, bad cop routine. I must say I'm a bit surprised to see Shale playing good cop with Jon

    chael's first job as new prez. you're gonna do a much better job than Dana, chael. Just cut the cards in half, get Askren and Khalidov, hell, even JT Money and Manhoef, and we'll call it a day

    Cormier better not fight Jones with Knee problems. He will get eye poked and kicked in the knee and lose.........

    If Cormier post-pones anything that will fix a health problem, then he's not as smart as I thought.

    He should book it in, and force Jon's hand. It would make their eventual fight that much better.

    I think Jon and Chael developed a bit of a friendship on TUF.

    Dumbest idea ever if he postpone that surgery. Gotta love DC and Gus' courage.

    Yea, that is just flat out dumb. Cormier is a rising star and could ruin all that if he blew his knee.

    Dana needs to show respect first and not go along promoting fights with a set date that weren't agreed upon.

    yea he does - its amazing how powerful those verbal skills are in the real world - people eat that sht up
     
  20. Well said. The first person Jon needs to show respect to is himself. No one is negotiating on his behalf or looking out for his best interests in the UFC or on Sherdog, that's for sure.
