    Have you ever thought they do it because Harley Davidson is a big sponsor?

    lol good point.

    After what happened with Frank Mir I'm actually a little shocked the UFC still does this. If not for that bike accident...well who knows how long he could have reigned as UFC champ?
    No bike accident and I don't see anyone beating Mir until the pride guys came over - and even then, maybe not until the modern era of giant HW's.

    They don't care about the fighters as much as they care about money.

    If the Russian Roulette Society of Moscow was offering a billion dollars to sponsor the UFC, Zuffa would give away revolvers.

    At least they're not sponsored by Heckler & Koch.

    Well, nothing says you can't put the motorcycle on ebay. Rich Franklin did that with a Hummer back in the day.

    They give away a weak Harley that's why. No threat on that!

    Fighting skills aside, I would never be signed to the UFC. If that's the way they play ball
