It really sickens the shit out of me that so many of these so called "fans" continue to push for their favorites and hope they can pull wins out from their asses. No one thinks whats best for these old time warriors and the long term damage these people do to themselves just before they are "forced" to leave the sport. Excuse #1 Oh, he is man and he can decide for himself when to quit. * No, if you truly respect someone you have followed for years you would give him advice and make it plain that you don't support him fighting anymore. Do you let your best friend shoot heroin before he dies because it's his decision..NO. Do you let your best friend jump off a bridge because hes depressed..NO. There are lines and circumstances to letting a man be a man and when you need to step in. Dana is case in point. He considers Chuck someone special to him and drew a line in the sand for him..and even this was generous because chuck was seriously getting ktfo badly looking for an in ring death. Excuse #2 Oh, XXXXX has no means to live and no viable income so he needs to fight to make a living. *More bullshit. I am sorry but if these fighters have squandered every last dime of profit they have gained over the years and need to fight for the possibility of a few grand (and thats generous because they will never make top 5 or 10) then they deserve the hardship. You can rent a hole in the wall in some urban city and work at Wal Mart to buy food to live on. Thats what you get for not saving a dime of profits during your prime days of glory when you were king of the world. So whats the protocol ... what restrictions should the sport have in place to prevent people from permanently damaging themselves in pursuit of $. Considering that these fighters have life changing injuries at any age and just entering the octagon can seriously cripple you for life. I guess in the end its the decision of the corporates and owners of the UFC who need to aggressively step up to the plate and say hey, thats enough you need to leave. We watched Randy Couture leave the sport gracefully in his 40s but here was an intelligent man who knew who could still compete and be a factor in his division. He trained intelligently, never partied excessively (chuck,page) and was always smart to enter the ring healthy and (relatively) injury free. Whats the point of this post..there is none..I just wanted to vent my anger at so called "FANS" who are so quick to yell for wandy or crocop or page to challenge whomever just because they want to see them in the ocatagon never minding that these guys are so fucking past their prime and taking chances on a free trip to the hospital in a coma that they may not wake up from.
