And this type of shit is why my interest in MMA will be essentially ZERO when Strickeforce is gone because White will play favorites etc. like he always does. The UFC is no different than the WWE.

Let alone the fact that he went life and death with a raw fighter like Rogers before that. He simply isn't worth the same money that he was getting before.

sad to see fedor one of the greatest in the sport leave. I think fedor if he comes back should cut to lhw i think he would have a better chance in that division.

FOR **** SAKE THEY'RE NO DOING ANYTHING! HE HAS A CONTRACT AND ITS BEING HONOURED! JUST THIS WEEK THEY'VE TALKING ABOUT MAKING FEDOR VS HENDERSON!

Seriously, is it really that difficult to read an entire thread before coming out with the same stupid points that have been refuted a billion times.

Don't expect an educated response from him. He doesn't have that sort of ability. He usually just laughs or calls people a "UFC schill" when they point out obvious facts such as I did.
