This fight does absolutely nothing for his growth. But hey, if he can continue making good money this way and then cash out later, I'm not hating. Just don't give interviews saying you can beat this guy and that guy and then fight a Galen Brown or Damon Reed when you have real tough journeymen that can give you a good test that are ready and available.
100% agree, as you would know who you want to fight and who you end up fighting more often than not is out of your hands as a pro fighter, especially when signed to DK.
Believe me when I say Mark wants to test himself more than anyone else wants him to. He doesn't train day in day out wanting these level of fights, but it is what it is. Have a great Christmas mate and hopefully 2013 brings you everything you want.
