    i don't remember if i already knew this or not. i can't keep up with all the cancelled UFC contracts and stuff nowadays...






    MY REAL FANS WILL...

    Hello all, just here to keep you informed on whats going on with me. Hopefully, MY REAL FANS WILL FOLLOW ME WHEREVER I GO. The UFC recently cancelled my contract following my decision loss at UFC63. It saddens me because I felt like the UFC was my home. But I guess I'll have to find a new place to call home. Right now Im in SanDiego training with Brandon Vera and Rob Kaman. Brandon is in solid shape for his fight.Dont worry guys, I WILL come back VERY STRONG. Im extremely motivated! Stay tuned,and Ill keep yall posted on whats next for me. Dont forget about my new CROWEAR clothing line available online at WWW.THEFIGHTNETWORK.COM

    Thats shitty, he was a good edition to the UFC's roster. I wanted to see him go with Chris Leban.

    He didn't fight well in either, but he's a good fighter and just needs some confidence, oh well, not surprised to see them make a shitty decision.

    there are escape clauses on both ends. just on Zuffa's end, they can release fighters for any reason they desire

    They bring Diaz back because people like to watch him fight, he is exciting even when he loses. The crow was kinda boring in his last few fights.

    OK this makes complete sense to me. But two fights is a bit harsh.

    I really think it has to do in the way he lost his last fight, he was boring, seemed intimidated or just timid. Any one could have went into that fight and do what he did which was really nothing.

    You know it's probably better for him. He should get a couple wins under his belt else where. Build up his confidence then return to the UFC.

    They can be bought by the UFC at any time..if they wanted to have them, they would pay them the money the would demand to fight in the UFC...it's pretty simple really. :ugh:

    Rampage obviously is fighting for the most money and Henderson was quoted as saying that Lindland would fight his own wife if you paid him enouigh. :ugh:

    the humungus wasn't to the fact that fighters can be bought out. he was just commenting on how UFC doesn't care about the fighters or the sport itself

    You realize they did offer him a contract after his Aldana fight? Paul just felt it wasn't enough money for him :dunno:

    and you realize that part of taking care of fighters is paying them what they deserve? it's a give-take, but it does a hell of a lot more for the sport the way orgs like PRIDE treats their fighters. they also build their reputation and whatnot a lot more and work with their fighters to get endorsed

    Paul doesn't even take care of himself, how can you expect the UFC to do otherwise

    um, ok

    he has an awesome finishing rate, puts on good fights, and holds his own in the cage. does any of this justify the UFC only offering him $200 and a happy meal for fighting? this goes to most all of the fighters as well, including those who "take their training seriously"

    in all fairness if Frank lost to Dan he probably would have been cut from the UFC

    we will see how he does against Vera and then what happens with his contract :dunno:

    obviously the offer you stated is an exaggeration, we don't know what it was but it "wasn't enough"
