How do you feel when a fighter moves up/catchweight for 1 person but not another?

    Is that the most blatant ducking a fighter can do? Or is it fair game?

    For example Ronda said not long ago if Gina returned she would meet her at 145. Same day said she would NOT meet Cyborg at 145....only Gina.

    Vitor turned down the Moose fight because Moose wanted 195 catchweight. Vitor goes on to fight both Rich Franklin and Anthony Johnson at catchweight....just not Mousasi.

    Andy refused to face Jones but went up for Cormier. GSP wouldnt fight Andy but says he'd fight Bisping.

    Personally it pisses me off and makes them look like cowards. Do we all agree? Or am i wrong here?

    Anyone who calls professional fighters "cowards" is automatically wrong.

    Also, Vitor went up 20 lbs to fight Jon Jones you goofball. And he did it when he had zero experience fighting a LHW opponent for half a decade, and with zero relevant wins at LHW for 8 years.

    That title shot was 1,000,000 miles from legit, but Vitor's balls cannot be questioned since that day.

    Ok so you're going to pretend its not sourced and documented and facts and proven knowledge that he refused to fight moose at 195 then took other fights at 195?

    Put it this way. He isnt confident in himself he can beat Moose or he would have accepted the fight like he did Jones. He's scared to lose to a guy who's ranked top 10 but not a casual name.

    Im sure he'd fight Cain and Reem again too to headline a PPV even though its a guaranteed loss.

    Nope.

    I'm also not dumb enough to pretend the reason a guy who went up 20 lbs to take on Prime Jonny Bones Jones, even though he had zero fights at LHW for half a decade, turns down a fight with another middleweight due to fear.

    It is fear. Not fear of injury like a fucking bear attack but fear of his career going down the shitter. Which is a legit fear.

    A different kind of fear.

    One that's a million miles from anything that could be equated to making them look like "cowards".
