    Platinum Mike Perry is so cool that the entire gym turned on Cowboy within minutes.

    So yes, I know the story.

    Perry gives them a bigger cut of his pay I guess, more money for them long term as Cowboy’s time is nearing its end. Kinda greasy.

    Is Normal to stick with the fighters with the most upside... Cowboy is on his way out... and according to the forum Platinum is on his way up.

    As Max would say "It is what it is". Business is cruel and don't expect loyalty when it comes to longevity. For the most part that whole "Family" aspect is dead.

    Wash and wear world really.

    I think it's better for all parties involved anyway, in the Cowboy case. Cowboy has been in there for a long time, and I don't think he can learn anything new. Same way J/W can't teach him anything new. But there's a lot Perry can learn with J/W.

    Plus given the width of the WW division, and the likelihood of Cowboy or Perry being title contenders in the future, they could both train there and not fight each other. Still better for Cowboy to go somewhere new, if he wants to grow anymore, but I could see him wanting to stay in familiar territory and retire in peace. In which case he could easily stay there.

    Wasn't Diego a MW when GSP came in?

    And Condit is a lifelong Winklejohn fighter. He was going wherever Winklejohn went.

    GSP also didn't train there fulltime. He spent most of his time at Tristar, his home gym. And only used J/W as sort of consultants, which IIRC started with the 2nd Penn fight.

    Nope. You should listen to what Cerrone said. His beef is with Wink. Cerrone doesnt pay Wink because he isnt his coach. Greg is letting Wink run the gym and sounds like Wink has the crack house open for bizness.

    Loyalty is something that some people believe in, and others dont.

    No gym would survive if loyalty was their top priority

    Conor's gym seems pretty loyal to one another.
