Yair vs Pico next year for bellator title, heard it here first.
Dude noped right the fuck out of his UFC contract
I'm LOVING this idea
Damn thats unfortunate. The kid is fun to watch. But i have a hard time believing they will actually let him go for good. Let's hope its just a strongarm tactic to get him in line. If not he will be in bellator or rizin before long.
Combates will put him to good use with a quickness.
I'm also not opposed to him being cut after a long layoff and turning down fights.
I wish they didn't cut him but I get it and it doesn't surprise me too much.
I just wanted to post Bartek Stachura's Combate idea, but it automatically embeds the tweet that it's responding to.
It's a shame, but if this kid is just ducking guys and refusing to fight, what's the use in having him on the roster and further investing in him?
Frankie absolutely embarrassed him - destroyed him and made like look like a novice. Coming off a loss like that, he should be itching to get back into the cage. If this is his attitude, that he's turning down fights... why keep him?
if no one ever fought fighters ranked below them there wouldn't be any fights at all except those who are joint-ranked.
Rodriguez is an idiot and he will learn that the hard way. Kyle Bochniak's stock rose even in defeat against Magomedsharipov so how can Rodriguez claim his stock wouldn't rise if he actually beat that same opponent? plus the UFC rankings aren't entirely based on beating fighters ranked above you, just winning can lead to you moving up even if it's against short notice opponents that came up from a lower weight class for that one fight.
Best part about it is to make it happen, one of them will have to try prying the title from Patricio Pitbull.
PM when you sign Yair.
Yair vs Zabit would have been a great fight. I don't know why Yair thought he was at a level where he could pick and choose his fights like that. He definitely overplayed his hand, shame to see him go but I can't blame Dana for this one.
EDIT : WRONG THREAD and WRONG QUOTE
Gilbert Burns and Olivier Aubin-Mercier ?
EDIT : WRONG THREAD
If the fighter is over the 8-percent mark of their target weight, then the UFC would, at minimum, follow that fighters weight cut throughout fight week, including monitoring the fighters vitals. The fighter can also be removed from the bout if it is considered to be too risky if the fighter is allowed to continue cutting weight, which is apparently what happened in Burns’ case.
EDIT : WRONG THREAD
Dern wasn't far off that 8% at the weigh ins let alone fight week.
116 / 100 x 8 = 9.28
wtf I ended up quoting the wrong posts and replied to the wrong thread 3 times
if a mod could delete them all that would be great, I've added a disclaimer to each 1
Losing streak and turning down multiple fight offers....
Mix in a water, bud....
He's only like 25.
That's about 17 years too young to sign with Bellator...
Conor McGregor takes any fight they offer him and he's the biggest star in the sport.
Yair hasn't won or drawn shit in this sport and thinks he can cherry pick his opponents.
more like fake news himself out of a UFC contract.
1 fight isn't a streak. He's 6-1 in the UFC
