I got in touch with Dunkin originally to interview Bradley when we had our Boxing Site experiment. That all fell apart but he'd emailed me back and I had been doing some other writing about UFC's business model. So I asked him about that, he answered and we swapped him esmails where he laid out, as an example, Tim's situation.

It was a good illustration of how contracts are used to exploit sportsmen. I wasn't writing a book about Bradley or Shaw. It was originally an article, but I've got some good pieces that would make a solid book down the line. We'll see. I've got enough projects as is.
why have u edited this post 3 times? and taken out the part where u said nobody gives a shit about bradley?
