How many players are suspended pending DUI's or weed possession?
It happens all the time.
This is absolutely a business move by the CU. It's applying pressure to zuffa to allow the unions in, just as zuffa applied pressure to Affliction and SF to fold/sell.
Again, if it's good for zuffa, it should be good across the board, no?
What's the difference?
The difference is those people are suspended with pay until the facts/verdict comes out. Jeremy is supposed to sit on the sidelines without his major source of income until this shit gets resolved?
When the CU throws its dick around in NY to try and keep the UFC out of it; thats a business move, thats putting pressure on Zuffa. Writing FOX about 2 fighters that they have on an upcoming card and bitching about their legal problems seems real petty. (its not even like the general public knows who either of these fighters are anyways) Taking either or both of these fighters off of the card wouldnt stop one person from watching this event so I really dont see how its a business move to put pressure on Zuffa.
