    Because at the end of the day we are all just hairless apes grunting and trying to impose our will on each other.

    And also.. some of us are cunts.

    Well probably because Dana's involved and if he doesn't get what he wants things the way he wants them it will dissolve into the pissing contest. In the past Dana likes to make the call as to when you should walk away from the UFC

    Gotta think Dana is really not happy now either in a span of just a few months he's lost GSP and Silva his to two top fighters and both big PPV draws.

    Probably not too happy about losing their money machine on such short notice...what else could it be?

    At the end of the day, GSP still comes out winning here by a country mile.

    Sure, maybe they took his title behind his back and Dana said some dickhead things leading up to GSP's "taking a break", but think of how many buys GSP will be taking from the UFC with his absence.

    Couple that with his role in the Captain America sequel, leaving while on top and the utter desperate grovelling at GSP's feet he'd receive upon his return, and the millions of dollars the UFC will be throwing at him(not that he needs it) to get him back.

    End of day, they can take his title and treat him unprofessionally upon his exit, but GSP holds all of the fucking cards here and will until he chooses to return(and IF). UFC is losing a lot of business with his absence, he was their biggest draw and can hold them over a barrel.

    Again, GSP wins here.

    Judging by the fight presser antics I would suggest this is very possible.
