Nate turned the fight down

 

Respect for Jake for taking the Lombard fight. Looks like the only guy from the scrap pack that wants the tough fights.

As much as I agree he's a killer, this is where Dana shows himself to have no idea what he's doing. Why throw people in a division you pride on being stacked and full of killers, under the bus for one guy? If you're challenging them to fight this guy you can't have a group email or chat with them? You gotta throw fish to a fanbase to have negative opinions of your top talent? Melendez is now a pussy apparently is what this more or less says and everyone else able to sign up for a fight with him.

 

It doesn't do anything to help Khabib, we all know he's a killer already, it's just Dana's impatience and inability to let things be and leave well enough alone. I don't get this. It's Dana created drama again, and does nothing to further star power or prove he doesn't need to be the center of attention. Tell Khabib to tweet it then, at least then it would come from him like Connor does at least.

Just came to post this. Wow. Not a lot of upside to fighting him, tho. Still not very well known but he's a handful for anyone in the top 5. Phone Post 3.0

It is so lame that Dana makes it public when someone turns down a fight. It just makes the fighter look bad...but we don't really ever get the whole story.

Anyway, I think Khabib would kill Nate.

This, it does nothing more than look like Dana is trying to engineer drama and try and be part of the product. No wonder people have problems giving him money.

Apparently so does Nate.

Nate turned the fight down

 

Respect for Jake for taking the Lombard fight. Looks like the only guy from the scrap pack that wants the tough fights.


So both Gil and Nate turned Khabib down, or was the Khabib-Melendez fight a rumour the whole time? Hadn't even heard about the Diaz fight except for Khabib calling him out.

I'd do it in a heartbeat if I ever got the opportunity. Hopefully now that Keizer is leaving I may be able to get a Nevada license. Phone Post 3.0

gum989 - Lol at you guys, getting mad that people get to find out who is scared of who.

I'd rather find out from Khabib not Dana, Dana pathologically lies like a 5 year old in front of a smashed cookie Jar

clearly no one is mad. but people exactly like you are the problem here. you can't fathom that there might be a reason other than 'being scared' that Nate wouldn't take the fight?

Just for this I hope Melendez becomes champ, so Dana can have another live fit wrapping the belt around someone.

Khabib vs Melendez was at poster for UFC 170 but then they say Gil decided not to sign this damn contract

Which we never got the whole story. Dana is butthurt and therefor goes straight to becoming Khabib's promoter while president of the company with no credibility in his statements.

It then confuses everyone with the fog surrounded the reasons and people don't buy the drama and star power fades more thanks to Dana.

So you think that Cain should be forced to fight DC? Nick forced to fight Nate? Anderson forced to fight Lyoto?

Surely fighters should be able to turn down fights for other reasons.

Dana did it to Vitor in the MW division until he realized what he can make in Brazil and ANderson is on the shelf. It was "Vitor doesn't deserve a rematch" even after some of his most violent victories.
