    True, true

    When you pay as little as the UFC does, you can barely call their fighters "professionals"

    Their cans are semi-pro at best

    Unless Greg Hardy fights, then there's a whole list of cans to throw his way

    Volkov is the exception

    Please. Some of the fighters on UFC cards this past year has been embarrassing. Being a UFC fighter doesn't mean nearly what it use to be.

    Fitting he'd say this two days before this upcoming fight: “We don’t do easy fights, we don’t do set-up fights"

    Imagine if that reporter had the courage to bring up CM Punk. Dana would have flipped out.

    smolyakov was 8-0 100% finishes in russian leagues
    Juan Adams was 5-0 100% finishes
    Sosoli had 7 wins, 6 finishes

    At heavyweight those are all dangerous fighters. Cans are guys like Rudy Bears MVP is fighting with .500 records

    On paper. There are plenty of cans with good records in combat sports.

    at heavyweight anyone that can finish is a dangerous fight. Derrick Lewis has very minimal MMA skill/background and just fought for a title

    I mean, people want to complain but the ufc champs do go through tough fights to become champ and they do have by far the best overall level of quality. If any of you have been to a full bellator card you would see a tremendous difference overall.

    Punk ultimately was a joke but he’s had 2 fights out of all the cards and fights.

    Did you see Hardy's fight with Smolyakov or Juan Adams? What does it say about some about some of the competition out there if these guys are undefeated with all finishes?

    They beat the kind of guys that amateur jokes like Tye Fields and Brian Nielsen build up great boxing records beating.

    What does Derrick lewis fighting for a title say? Heavyweight is trash from bottom to top
