Why not say that , he deserves as much as the next guy he,s fighting , Conor made over 10mill and he lost .
Diaz choked the fucker til he tapped and got roughly 1/5 that and he won , so of course he,s gonna say he wants the most he can get when fighting now .

The only thing I'm certain of is that I'm not worried about Dana and the Fertitta's. They're pretty much set.

Actually, two things.

I hope the fighters unionize, just because I think it's shit these guys can't see past their noses that they'll be dying from dementia when they're 60 and that they deserve the millions right here, right now.

I agree with you %100. The fighters should be making way more than they are now. Dana can afford it, with the numbers he is bringing in. I remember back in 2007 when Chuck Liddell fought Keith Jardine. Jardine won and made a pittance compared to Chuck. It was an insult what he made in that fight.

you may have missed my point, i totally agree. these guys can't do it forever. get effing paid. getting punched in the head can't feel great.

I don't want GSP to come back. I want to remember him as the greatest 170lber ever. There's nothing he can come back and do that would improve his legacy.

A win over MacGregor? Please, Nate is right - that would just be bullying a much smaller fighter.
A 'Super-Fight' with Anderson Silva? No thanks, that ship sailed about 5 years ago. Don't think I would bother watching that.

I would watch just to see if he is still capable , he still trains very hard , and if he can come in as hungry as he did in the early years he could cause some havoc .

He was in the corner of the guy who recently died in an MMA fight… and he works for Dana and the Fertitta's.

I can imagine a bunch of scenarios where I'd do the same.

similar to riding a trail/stunt that someone recently passed away on would be a similar feeling I would bet .

Especially when your next fight is against the same guy that just whooped your ass.
