    “Listen, I love to watch Nate fight and I love to watch Nick fight,” Michael Bisping said. “I am a huge fan of both of them, I really am. There was no way I was missing that fight on Saturday. There was no way I was missing the Pettis fight. They’re great fighters. They bring excitement every time.

    And you’re right there is that aura, that element of there’s a wildness. You don’t know what they’re gonna do and what they’re gonna say, and that’s part of the attraction. I get that, but by losing this fight and then saying, ‘Okay, I’m gonna retire,’ because it didn’t go his way, and then to start coming out with conspiracy theories and things like that. It’s wholly unattractive.”

    “For him to say, ‘I’m gonna retire,’ he’s only hurting himself. He’s in his mid-30s. I don’t know what is he -- 32? 33? 34 -- something like that. This window doesn’t last forever. I don’t know what he got paid in New York, but it would’ve been a lot of money. I guarantee you that. It was probably in the region of a couple million dollars, I would assume. The window of a fighter doesn’t stick around forever. That window does not stay open. Get in, make as much money as you can while you can. He’s only hurting himself.”

    “Having one setback getting beaten in a fight, and then saying, ‘Man, f*ck it. That’s it. I’m retired.’ I’m sorry, to somebody like me, I have zero respect for that.”

    Kinda true, we all know the Diaz's bitch wayyy too much, we all just let the get away with it because they're so likeable otherwise.

    Ping should have retired after the Hendo “win”. He was damaged goods going into the GSP/Gas fights after getting his chin wrecked by old man Silva/Hendo

    I don't think "respect" is the correct word, more like being a dumbass and the Diaz bros are very good at that.

    Also Bisping surely knows 1 or 2 things about losing respect *cough*Middleweight championship*cough*

    Why? Did Bisping not prove himself as a game fighter?

    lol. I still remember when Bisping was trying to get a fight with Nick and Nate straight up told him he wasn't a big enough name. I don't think the Count ever got over that. Still sounds salty.

    Retirement has little to do with age and more to do with mileage/ fighting style. Nate has been through a lot of wars and he is losing the ability to formulate a sentence. Mma is too young to understand the full impact of cte on fighters and the full repercussions of this grueling sport. If Nate, Conor, Cerrone, Nick or any other young man wants to retire I am ok with that. Them being pussies or crybabies because of that is BS.

    In Nate's world the window of opportunity is a portal to the multiverse

    I think you’re chalking up a lack of education to CTE, brotha.

    Bisping is awesome. That said, it probably doesn’t cost too much to live that Cholo life.

    Honestly, the Diaz boys have enough Drain Bamage, retirements probably for the best
