  1. Man chael is so entertaining, I'll be in the movies watching the avengers 8, get the notification and watch chael instead.

  2. Chael, I come here from basketball so thats just what i compare it to most. But i want the ufc to be a real sport and the nba would never ever ever treat its players even the scrubs as shitty as the ufc treats its very best. I think your tough guy nonsense stops you from seein that, but yeah my three cents

  3. Chael the real question is how many fights does Khabib have left on his UFC contract? he seems to want to retire or leave the UFC. I don't think he's going to break his contract, but he seems to be tempted. He wants to leave the UFC because of his teamates, he wants to retire, he has offers from other MMA venues. How many more fights does he have?

  4. Losing weight is the problem, these guys aren't walking around anywhere near their fighting weight

  5. If your supposed to fight on Nov 3 then u fight on Nov 3 no matter what. It's like connor when aldo pulled out he still fought on ufc 189 even with a completely different opponent.

  6. Chael you know better than that Nate Diaz doesn't get pay-per-view points stop it only Champions get pay-per-view points or if you're McGregor nobody else is getting pay-per-view points especially Nate Diaz Dana White would never give him pay-per-view points

  7. Joana not the champion makes me laugh every time. I love her but it's just a funny name

  8. Nate is always the exception to the rule of attraction. Regardless of his following that’s pre existed the Conor fight, he always gets thrown under the bus besides the fact that he’s never pulled out of a fight and he’s like top 5 in the UFC on strikes landed in any weight division. Behind GSP and Bisping. It’s crazy.

  9. well ufc needs to do something ; if the yleep treating fighters like shit it will create a lot of shit

  10. Boss decides, but if a fighter has enough pull he can change what's set. Preparation time is kinda lazy since pros should stay ready year round, and know that a schedule will always change. Chuck, Conor and Randy took all the fights and opportunity paid off. With injury it's different, so detailing the "why" to fans and the boss should be important to all fighters to not let speculation take over reality.

  11. In simple words Joanna had done plenty for the UFC saving cards repeatedly doing promo talking nothing but,nice about the business she chose to be in!! Nate on the other hand does nothing but,bash the UFC dana white and the fight game itself and,let's be honest before Conor McGregor Nate wasn't worth more than a half a million well didn't get paid more than that anyways but now he did that got a few million then got even more at 15 million he hasn't really wanted to play together nicely with/for the company so he gets what he deserves!! Nothing all his fans been waiting for him to fight but NOTHING!!

  12. Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen are the beacons of making opportunities happen in life.

  13. Card subject to change is written on the ticket purchased by the fan. Maybe the fighter needs to sign a card is subject to change clause?

  14. Chael, You need to get those words down. Maybe you're right, and it should be 51/49 in the way of the person with the money. Right now though, it is skewing more 80/20 (or further). That is Joanna's complaint. I think she would have certainly had grounds to sue the UFC if they took this opportunity from her. Preparing for fights is a natural process for most of these fighters (Heavily because of the weight-cut) and the expectation to fast forward natural progression and weight cutting is not only unreasonable, it is dangerous. As any fighter successfully sued? If not, the UFC may be 100/0

  15. Hi Chael, really like you comments. Congrats ending Fedor fight without serious injury. That is very important. What is you thinking about you future careers. Best.

  16. Your right chael, remember Nate benefited from taking Conor on 2 week notice and became a mega star..

  17. Chael is imagining the mic is Conors díck in the thumbnail

  18. i think if a fighter can make the weight they should take the fight even if it is on short notice. I understand not being able to make weight in a shorter time span, fast forwarding your weight cut is not an easy task. However if you look at some of the most loved fighters in the sport, almost all of them are well known for taking fights on short notice, or even saving cards after a fighter falls out due to an injury or any other reason. In the fight game I believe you should always be ready to take a fight no matter when it is. If you have to cut a lot of weight, maybe consider moving up a weight class and make your life a little bit easier.

  19. I get it. What chaell is saying is true, but you guys are not making pizza. you are fighting in a cage so doing it at a drop of a hat or changing contracts in a bout agreement can be an issue and I understand where the fighters are coming from. Also the UFC loves saying these guys are independent contractors but then shiting on them like an employer does to an employee he doesn't like when they don't do exactly what the company tells them to

  20. Depends on whats at stake for the fighter and what the training camp was like for them. Did they over train a certain aspect in order to counter a previously scheduled fighter’s strengths? If so, they could probably benefit from turning down the fight.
