Why are fighters so hesitant to call out other fighters anyway?

    Is it an unwritten inside rule of respect or something?

    "I'll fight whoever the ufc puts in front of me"

    Joe Silva must have the easiest job in the world then?

    I don't get the OP. Fighters are calling each other out all the time.

    If you call out a guy, and that guy whips your ass, you look pretty silly.

    Or god forbid, you call out someone who is not your next opponent, and you lose to your next opponent, you look very silly. Like Phil Davis before the Johnson fight, or that black dude who called out Cain and got beat on his next fight. Can't be doing that.

    Phil Davis need to chill the fuck out with his call outs. Calling out Anderson after the Glover fight...

    yeah, i tend to think it happens about as often as it should. some guys don't care and say "i'll fight whoever." call-outs don't really excite me, though.

    Yeah. That was pretty awkward.

    He should've called out Rashad. That fight makes more sense nowadays.
