    so in other words, he's content fighting lesser competition for more money.

    Which Russian fighters are deserving of a UFC title shot that aren't getting one at present?

    Bagautinov got one, the other guy who's close (Khabib) is always injured, Khabilov shit the bed against Bendo and Martins so he clearly isn't deserving, and all the other Russians are nowhere near the title. Uninformed complaining.

    I think fighters would be very intelligent to push for a title shot clause in their contract if certain conditions are met.

    It's fun to generalize but can he at least make one example to support his claim?

    Arlovski is Belarusian, but I believe the same logic applies in terms of eastern european fighters being shunned due to unmarketability. Then again JoJed is Polish and she's been given her dues.

    I'm sure a title shot will be forthcoming for Fedor if he chooses to sign with the UFC.

    There is some truth to that. He did duck out of a fight with Tony Lopez due to "injury" yet ended up fighting an 0-0 fighter on a different show.

    I would not say he is that active either and Glory doesn't have the money to book someone like him right now.

    Fedor was to get an immediate title shot against Lesnar were he to sign at one point back when he was undefeated.
