Stick to the evidence, instead of making distasteful comments.
I'm not joking about anyone's mum having cancer. I'm indicating that I do not believe anything AO says
. The only source for her condition has been him
. First, he described her situation as so critical, he just had to leave town when faced with the decision to go take an immediate urinalysis required for him to be licensed to fight.
Two weeks later, after recieving the conditional license [and dodging a urinalysis bullet], he stated something to the effect of doctors found a "couple of cells" but that it was nothing to worry about. You
can choose to believe him and his hype. I
will choose not
to bother even trying.
My mother died of cancer. I look at AO as someone who would pretend
his mother's health ws threatened simply to avoid his own threat of being held responsible for testing like any other fighter. Once his
threat is alleviated, her
threat magically evaporates as well. Personally, I find that a bit disgusting.
Feel free to call it coincidence and accept his word on it, you certainly have the right to your own opinion.
But for me; the remarkable--no, lets call it astromically implausible
--unbroken string of coincidences for him to avoid taking a piss test added up long ago to him being anything but
Do I see him as someone who would lie about his mother rather than take responsibility? I'm afraid I do.

So let me get this straight, you feel like the UFC should wait and see; and potentially reschedule the event, because the challenger needs time?
Plus I don't like the idea of last minute replacements being thrown into a title match without ample time for training. As you all know if they lose then the excuse will be "Well I took this fight on short notice to appease the fans".
It's 50 days till the fight. 50 days = 7 weeks. Most camps are 6 weeks.
If the UFC doesn't
wait and see, they actually have
time for a new challenger to train adequately, and remove the excuses you're concerned about. So maybe patience is the wrong
way to go, expecially with Alistair avoiding any type of speedy resolution by not authorizing the second sample to be tested.
The JDS vs Overeem fight is what people wanted to see. There is no other substitute on the UFC roster that would be equally gratifying for fight fans. Noone wants to see Mir get KTFO by JDS for $50 bucks...
Mir is as big of a draw, if not bigger, than AO. Not only that, he's got a far better resume.
But lets go back to your statement about "If the event has to be rescheduled then it is what it is...
Do you really expect anyone who has read your nonsense to feel like you actually believe this to be universal? If, say, chael sonnen had a bad A sample going into an upcoming bout with Anderson, do you really think anyone would believe you'd agree with that
event being rescheduled? Rescheduled over sonnen's theoretical fuckup?
Aren't you one of those hacks that bust out the tired old "it's the challenger's job to take the belt from the champion
" quip whenever you can?
Please. You can lie to yourself, son. Just don't try to lie to the rest of us.
Or if you're going to make the effort, don't suck at it so pathetically.
