bleedblue1 - hey full contact fighter- maybe instead of posting on the ug- you can take the time and refund all the money your subscribers lost after you cancelled your magazine with no notice.

Just a thought. Phone Post

Joshua J King -  ^strikeforce would let him fight For dream,k-1 etc Phone Post

But his fights over there during this time were basically throwaways.  And since starting in SF, he has had 9 fights across all orgs. During the same time period, Jon Jones has had 11 UFC fights. So if Mousasi just wanted to keep busy, or make more money, it seemed like an odd choice. If he's as good as he and his fans think, he could have been champ many fights ago in the UFC and making multi-millions per fight by now.

he didnt sign with the UFC because his management (m1 appy echtold) screwed him and manipulated him into signing with SF when affliction went under.  They didnt accurately present UFC's offer to him.

that's why he signed with SF initially. 

He now has new management.

Actually he had 10 fights and has been on a long injury layoff.  Also comparing amount of fights to Jon Jones for how many fights he would have had for UFC in that timeframe is a bit of a stretch considering Jones is pretty much the most active guy on the entire UFC roster during that time period, definitely for top level guys.

 

Why not compare his level of activity to a Machida for example?

How many high level/popular fighters are forced to fight less than they want to by the UFC?  Does Machida want to fight more often? He has turned down multiple fights that I'm aware of. Koscheck also fought a lot when not injured. So did Huerta. Most guys seem to be happy with how often they fight judging by how often we hear of them turning fights down and taking time off.

Ecky, do you think Mousasi made us much for those fights as he would have for the same or close to the same number of fights in the UFC, assuming he would have won them all? Did he even get paid for his Dream fights?

Also, he was injured in March of this year. There have been no Dream events this year and only a couple SF events since then.
