    I Agree 100%. This guy should not be allowed to fight in the UFC - BJ

    How dare you.


    Yair was happy to fight a diminishing BJ Penn when he was up and coming but now can’t face another up and comer?

    BJ’s warrior, Yair’s an opportunist.

    Yair about to be PAID! Thanks UFC! Everyone is going to want to sign him. He's young, exciting, and has a fan friendly style.

    I was I was going to make that point. They refused fights all the time. I mean all the time. So much so that Dana White's thinks that they are retired and don't want to fight anyone - they just refuse, and don't get cut. Bizarre.

    That sounds like an incredible match up but I'M not so sure Pico is ready for him just yet. Maybe a couple more fights first. After he gets a few more wins i think that would be an absolute barnburner. Holy shit i hope He signs with bellator now just for that fight alone

    That's really quite a shame.

    Yair vs Zabit would've been a hell of a fight.

    Good. Fighters need to be more active, not refusing fights. We've got enough of that from the top guys already. If you are not a top guy, you better be active, that is how you get there.

    They have contracts :D and those contracts keep being extended by them refusing fights, plus Nate is a commodity and Nick is still considered PPV worthy if and when he decides to fight again. Yair hasn't done anything yet to warrant special treatment.

    I agree completely. But the kid is gonna be great. Just not sure what his logic is turning down those fights. I think he handles Lamas rather easily aand im saying that being from the same neighborhood as Ricardo. He has lost a step and seems somewhat punchy. Zabit might be another story though

    I can only think that he's been listening to the wrong people, made a power move and lost big time. I wouldn't be surprised to see the UFC re-signing him in the next few weeks, and I'm not even sure they've actually cut him yet, the article suggested he was notified that he was going to be cut which doesn't sound like the usual statement. What are they waiting for? I think an apology and a change of mindset might convince the UFC to change their minds, but Mr Fake News seems dead set on sabotaging his career in a game of chicken he can't win.

    The UFC will go on with or without him

    I think all Egg wants is a little ball sucking and reach around from Yair

    This firing won't actually happen. Yair should just lick the tip and stay in the UFC.
    Its not gay if you only do the tip.

    i wonder if there is more to this story like a suspicious usada sample or something .it seems kind of odd to cut an up and coming star in a market that the ufc was trying hard to break in to a few years back.guys turn fights down all the time.there has to be some other contributing circumstances here.

    The is all speculation of course, but it could be that he simply wants more cash, in light of te type of money being thrown around with the new tv deals.

    It’s logical to want to be paid properly if you’re going to take on top/ dangerous talent.

    Bellator has already spoken with him. Basically waiting to see his official release papers before making an offer

    I think it may also relate to letting Leslie Smith go. If they let some fighters go for refusing fights it would help their case against her.

    Yair will be perfect for Bellator. If Combate Americas was serious about being a contender and getting the diaspora in a chokehold, they'd throw a dumpster of money at him.

    It's crazy how so many are just listening to Dana's side and not Yairs we have no idea what the real factors are here, we all have seen Dana be the epitome of shady in the past, yet look at so many of you saying just trashing yair for turning down fights
