The nerve of that punkassed sonofa.
There's actually no guarantee of that, when the champion has stated he has no interest in facing him.
three top ten contenders?! tom lawlor was ever top ten?! lmao. and meh on demian maia.....thats why he fights at ww now.
well, apparently i am just one of the few that am not overely impressed with the kid yet. the only fight i thought he looked real awesome in was munoz. i just think he could use another fight or two before he gets a title shot, or is dubbed "#1 contender". i know he is just doing his job or whatever.
i can see both fighters point of view. anderson has been destroying the division the last several years, against a lot of guys who have probably not had any business being in the cage with him. i dont blame him for not wanting this fight right now, and honestly i dont want to see it. i have no problem with anderson going with what he feels more of a challenge, against tougher copetition.....or against "more accomplished fighters" being gsp or bones. i think he has earned that.
lets see if ol' chrissy can make it through the likes of the talent, beotsch, or bisping and then we'll talk
