    "When i heard Rob was injuried i was already working hard in the gym so we upped a bit knowing i could get the call for Mar 7. Ive had a few little niggles, as always, but im still willing and able. My management havent got the right deal yet, but im hopeful we can still make it happen. Mark my words, im scared of no one"

    He would be putting a lot on the line against a dangerous opponent he may not be adequately prepared for.

    If I were on his management team, I would not recommend this move.

    There’s a contract with his name on it that says he’ll get paid x to show and y to win. Then he needs to agree to fight someone in a certain time and place.

    What kind of deals are they making in these situations? More reebok coupons? Promises of a title shot?

    Just wondering.

    Good for him. I'm all in favour of fighters getting extra hotdog branders.

    fighters can hold out for more money for a particular fight or refuse to fight until a contract is renegotiated.

    Shit yeah, I hope the fight happens.

    ...and if it does, it's better than Till vs. Gastelum.

    If Darren shows up the same way he did at a most gastelum, then it might tufn6into another snoozefest decision..Darren ceased to be an exciting fire after he stayed at the shadow realm, Jorge has changed him completely

    That's not how it works.
    The UFC contracts tie up a fighter for X number of fights over X amount of time. The UFC has to offer a fighter a fight but they do not have to accept. If they are offered fights (I believe there is a number like 3) that they do not accept then the time frame is extended. The UFC locks up fighters with these contracts as they cannot compete elsewhere and usually even in other sports/ WWE/Boxing etc.

    The UFC uses their leverage as often as they can and with no mercy. When a fighter has leverage they can use it as well. If he is contracted for X to show and X to win but the UFC wants him to step in to replace Whittaker he can offer to do it for 5X and the UFC can say yes or no. He has leverage as this fight is already booked and scheduled.
