Not that I agree with him, but I don't hate him so much now.
Good response by him. It clears it up for me.
That was awesome. LOL
That he admits that he just got straight out classed in all areas made me hate him less. No excuses.
he was running pretty well with a broken foot
CLIFFS: "I DIDN'T FIGHT BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR MEDICAL BILLS. I JUST SHOWED UP TO COLLECT A PAYCHECK AND FIND A WAY TO MINIMIZE MEDICAL EXPENSES."
What a bitch.
If he's saying that was the 100% best he could have done, then he deserves the hate he's getting.
I don't get the bitching about the contract.
He signed it knowing he may be cut open, or beat up and only get 10k.
Yeah the UFC makes alot of money off of the PPVs, but is he saying that his life hasn't been better since signing with the UFC? Opening up sponsorship opportunities, allowing him to train full time, etc etc.
He signed the contract, can't bitch now. This is fucking pussy bullshit.
If things were so bad, we'd hear others throwing fucking fits like this.
if he didn't bitch on in his fight with Kendal and Blecher, I might be a little more inclined to sympathize with him. But since he's proven before he's a bitch, thats what he'll forever be known as.
Whaaaa...I don't like my contract.
Fight better get a better deal.
I would like to make $250,000 a fight and get a PPV cut too, but guess what I am not good and I don't draw in the fans. Its not worth it for the UFC.
What about the guys who risk getting cut or beat up for $300 a fight? They would fucking kill for $10k to show and another possible 10k to win.
they had a name though
Well at least he didn't do it in protest, he just sucks.

so essentially it was what we thought but worded in a more comical and personable way? fuck that guy right off a cliff into a tire fire.
whaaa whaaa whaaaa
He wanted to be a fighter and didn't understand that it's not all glory and cheap whores after shows.
You're not a top name guy so you don't command top name money. I'm not even sure how he managed to get hurt backing up the entire fight.
Arlovski, Ortiz and the rest who are jumping ship have made a name for themselves. They fought out their contracts and haven't put on a completely shit show to alienate themselves from potential fans and sponsors.
Understandable to me. Didn't the UFC deny medical treatment on his broken rib or something like that?
I'd do the same thing if I broke my foot and knew that if I severely fucked it up then I'd be paying for it out of my own pocket.
Actually he probably should have just tapped out and told the ref/doctor his foot was broken. He'd look like a puss, but less of a puss than he did running around backwards for 14 minutes.
thats what i've been saying. if your foot is broken, hold out till the round ends, then tell your corner you cant fight cause you broke your shit. then instead of chewing up 11 more minutes of PPV time we might get to see another fight.
I think he is more bitching about nothing medical being covered
he's a pussy, his little letter did nothing but make me hate him more. he willingly signed a contract, knew the expenses/injury that could potentially occur and still came out and acted like a douche bag.
He could get a 9-5 at Food Lion stocking shelves and not be in such danger or be in the position to incur such bills. Instead he's fighting, doing what he likes and dealing with the rest of the shit the rest of the fighters live with, but he's being a bitch about it.
now thats a back down
It's hard to say no to something you love.
like i said before as a good example. Leben was in a very similar situation as him- shitty contract but almost over, he had lost 3/4 fights, but he made the best of it, got the win over martin then resigned to 25K to show + 25k to win- not cause hes really good but he showed that he doesnt back down. And he was rewarded.
