    Woodley wants Diaz, Nunes wants Rousey, pretty much everyone else wants McGregor....

    I blame Dana for creating these hype train 'stars' and for paying fighters based on the marketability.

    Fighters get paid shit.

    Do you really blame them for requesting a big money fight and live comfortably the rest of their lives?

    Come on TS.

    TS, you do know it's a business? And Uncle Dana is in charge of making sure the business makes money?

    the floodgates were opened as soon as they started letting conor run around doing whatever he wanted. now the precedent has been set. it's pure spectacle from here on out.

    Then blame UFC for not paying them as they should. Intead of supporting the idea of making fights based on popularity instead of merit because fighters want to call their shots.

    Lets suppose im a lawyer working in a firm. Do you think is fine if i walk up to my boss and tell him "i just want the big cases. dont bring me what you think i should do. i am only going to defend high profile clients"

    You think thats fine? i doubt it

    Unless you have an humongous leverage, you are getting fired.

    It's a fucking shame but these guys are doing what they have to to get that big pay check. It really highlights the ufc as being a third world and niche sport regardless of the recent 4 billion dollar sale. More money in other shit.
