TBA via TKO
I bet it's Michael Chandler
That'd be cool.
Oliveira would be better
Dana- We have a fight
Reporter - Oh so Tony signed?
Dana - No not yet
inb4 Dana pays Chandler exactly what Porier wanted lmao
Who’s the fighter who accepted to fight Tony for 20k/20k and gave Dana a reason to not pay Poirier what he’s worth?
As long as there are fighters willing to fight for free, the ones who have earned paydays will not get them
Hooker or Oliveira would be my guess.
Poor Dustin, Chandler would be awesome tho.
how do you know Poirier didn’t ask for a ridiculous amount of money?
Machida asked for Anderson Silva money and he ain’t no Anderson Silva.
Incoming poirer vs Tony announcement.
Don't believe his lies
What situation is more likely? Dana underpaying a fighter or a fighter pricing as game as Dustin “pricing themselves out?”
Da Bronx prolly. whatever just book it on Khabib's card in case for some reason Gaethje gets COVID or injured so we can get the card we all have been waiting for. its only going to happen because of a cancellation
Dana continues to negotiate with the entire roster via the media.
His message is clear, ask for more money and we will find someone to do it for way less. He's using his fighters against each other to keep the market values low.
I don’t even know what Dustin is making or what he’s worth. He’s in that weird zone of interim champ, multiple title shots, mostly only loses to elite guys, nearing the end of his prime veteran.
a consistent top 5 guy.
The Dreaded TBA.
Frustrating, but smart.
Fuck Dana, I wanted this fight.
And exactly how much do you expect him to get? He signed up to take 250k flat for both of his title fights which is pretty low. Then, he signs a new deal and fights Hooker and makes 150k/150k.
Dustin has kind of set his price and this fight with Tony isn't a main event, it's just a 3-rounder. Maybe if Dustin came out and told ppl what price he gave that was turned down we could be more sympathetic. But fighters like to keep everything a secret, so who are we to judge? For all we know Dustin could of been asking for half a million.
