    What say you Sherlads? Is the UFC losing control of its fighters? What can they do at this point to get fighters to actually show up for their duties?

    “Fighters”? Are you implying they’re not really fighters?

    The least control they have on their fighters, the better it is for everybody.

    Yes, they are. I hope they go out of business so this very exciting promotion can grow. Impeccable technique.

    Well that's the danger of fighters becoming stars – they find other sources of revenue. However it's probably Nay – most who haven't committed aren't at that level yet.

    I don't blame him. Sonnen is a horrible match up for Wanderlei.

    I think Dana is looking for more guys like Khabib who cares about the legacy in the sport not just money. That’s what MMA is it’s a sport not a show.

    Pay them more, enough to take a beating from valentina/zabit for 25mins. If the money is worth the beating they won't duck anymore.
