Sums up most people's feelings on this approach quite succinctly. Thanks.

I am 100% serious and using hypothetical statements to make a point doesn't make your point valid at all. And way to jump on the generic "fight for family" line. Give me a break.

For me, this has nothing to do with love or hate, or respect or lack thereof. It's all about "What have you done for me lately?" As much as you might like it to be otherwise, Tim, it's a heartless business. Consider Anthony Pettis, who was promised, yes, promised a title shot but since he would have to wait for the champ to be ready, he chose to take another fight and lost. Poof! No more title shot. For Zuffa, Anthony Pettis represents huge income and growth potential and they clearly think a lot of this young man. Yet he still takes the lumps for losing.Tim, you just need to perform. It's nothing personal. Some consistent wins coming in below 265lbs and there will be something to talk about. Now, putting my own personal opinion out there, I don't like that you got busted for PED's and that once you did, you started losing to everyone and looking like you had no business fighting. But I think everyone deserves a chance to prove they can come back. If you manage that I will be quite happy for you. So, still not a fan, but you can make me one by putting in some good performances. Good luck.

Would like to see video of in shape Tim training. Much respect for his former accomplishments, BUT do not want to see the 311 pound guy Abe Wanger KOed or 266 pound guy that hugged Kraniotakes to decision back in UFC. Where is the guy that finished 23 of 29? That Tim deserves to be in UFC.
