Fighters choose to fight for a lot of different reasons. A lot of ex-college or international wrestlers fight because it gives them a chance to continue competing at a high level. Some athletes want to test themselves in the utlimate man vs. man competition, and others just want to get paid. War Machine, however, just can't deal with working a 9-5 job:

"I want to fight Ben Askren for the belt," he said. "That's who I want to fight."

One thing War Machine knows for sure after all this time is that he's a fighter and he's in the right profession.

If he can turn that into a title, all the better. But either way, the alternatives for making money don't suit him."I fight because I can't have a boss," he said. "I can't drive in traffic every day and get up in the morning. I can't do a 9 to 5. I can't do a regular job. That's really why I fight. In a way, that keeps me happy because I don't have to do that. I don't have to deal with that. My job is taking care of myself and keeping myself in shape. That definitely keeps me more happy than a regular job."

"Can't"? or "don't want to"?

Not that there is automatically something wrong with not wanting to

wow really? you can chase dreams without being a hopeless loser that refuses to man up and sacrifice when he needs to.  the difference is he proudly states how he flat out refuses to deal with 1st world speed bumps.  most office workers make more than he does, and are clearly happier people.  congrats to him for his low income lifestyle in and out of prison? does he seem happy to you? always whining, getting locked up, broke, embarrassing himself on twitter, literally cries on camera from deep emotional issues, burns bridges with powerful members in mma so he can't even play the game properly in the field of his choice, doing what he loves.  your idea of success?  reach for them stars! congrats jon!!

From War Machine's blog damn. FRAT

So I have pretty much decided that in the next couple of years I am gonna move somewhere LESS CIVILIZED. After all, civilization and LAWS are in place to protect the WEAK anyway. Me being the Alpha Male, Spartan, SAVAGE that I am...I see no need for this type of B.S.
I don't go around looking for trouble and am in no way a bully. Actually if it were my way I would never have fights outside the ring, just train all day and fuck all night ... lol. But when someone needs to be smashed or KILLED I would be more than happy to do it. Like for instance the other night ... I was minding my business walking down the street and three drunk guys and two chicks walk by me and talk shit to me. Making fun of my haircut or some lame shit. Instinctively I want to smash their faces in, I mean that's what they deserve and what nature calls for. But instead I have to let their gf's make excuses for them so I do nothing and let these faggots feel tough for a night.
Why should I have to be less of a man to protect the rights and lives of lesser men? Why if I smash all three of their faces do I get arrested and prosecuted and no one asks them WHY THE FUCK THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HARASS ME IN THE FIRST PLACE!?
As you all know I got in big trouble earlier this year for a similar situation. Same type of thing. I was minding my business and some drunk dude talked shit and I terrorized him. Long story short and 20 grand later I ended up with probation and community service but was warned by the judge that a repeat would earn me prison time. So basically I am now walking on egg shells.
So the plan is to move to the Philippines in the next two years. There the money I make in the UFC will make me very wealthy and there I will not have to hold back when someone deserves to get smashed.
I wont have to be less of a man in order to prevent getting in trouble with the "law" I will be able to live my life how I want and deserve to live. I will train all day and fuck all night. Maybe one day I will find a wife, if not it's okay. I will bring my boxing coach and my jiu-jitsu coach with me. Build a team from scratch...this will be a great life. Hopefully before I am 55 I will die in a knife fight outside of some bar. Avoiding the midlife crisis all together.
This is the life of an Alpha Male like me. We are not supposed to grow old and wait around to die. We are supposed to fight, kill and fornicate. Tempt fate more and more with each passing year...and just as we start to become weaker and older a younger Alpha kills us and takes our place.
Yes, this is what I want, this is what I WILL have.

"Any man who must say, "I am the king" is no true king." - Tywin Lannister

Anyone who has to declare themselves alpha is the furthest thing from alpha. Alpha males just are. He also wouldn't know what being a man is if he tripped over one in the street.

This will probably get me told off for fighter bashing but War Machine is an idiot and a child. Hopefully he does disappear. It would be to the betterment of society if he does.

LOL, the worst thing to come out of this whole 'alpha' craze that every man seems to want to be is that they think being alpha has something to do with fighting someone.

Alphas have cars, wives and kids that they take care of, betas beat people up on the street and have prison records. 

Dudes are confused.

Lived in the Philippines the past 5 years.

He'll be in a lot of trouble if he pulls he same stuff here. Not from police (corrupt as hell) but life is cheap here and locals don't like to be embarrassed. A lot of guns kicking around too...

If he minds his own business he'll be fine and will land some prime Filipina girls to spend his time with but he seems to attract trouble and this isn't the place to be belligerent and out of control. Phone Post 3.0

translation:  i have no ability to do things that aren't fun to me due to an extreme inability to grow up.  i consider a first world lifestyle a painful hardship

Why is that people use the "grow up" line when anyone does a job people dream of?

It's always "he's never worked a REAL hard day's work like me" or "that isn't a real job" or whatever bullshit that is supposed to make a man feel better about being on a construction site or behind a desk all week.

It's like the guy who goes on about baseball salaries while saying it's a "child's game" before carrying on about what is man's work, etc.

Every single man would rather be a rock star, athlete, entertainer, actor, etc than to work a 40 hour plus week.

Those who get to do that are usually talented and often more driven.

I guarantee there are some great singers or ball players out there who just never went after that dream.

They end up 45, drinking and wondering what could have been.

War Machine isn't saving the world or curing disease but he chased his dream, found an opportunity and is talented enough to make it happen.

That's as real and as manly as anything a man can do. Phone Post

If he tries to do that here in the Philippines, he is not gonna have a good time and this could be his final stop. There are a couple of good MMA/BJJ gyms around, and like Litup said, he can land prime filipina girls and have a great life, IF he is not serious about those things he wrote.

He needs a lot more money that he currently is earning if he wants to right roughtshot anywhere in Asia. My dad lived in a couple of places and he had enough money to always by police and army security. The fucked people up for the right amount of cash. Not really the smartest thing to start smashing heads. Plus the locals dont look kindly upon that either. You would get mobbed a lot faster then most places in the States.

 

Anyways warmachine could always become a pornstar. He obviously has the hook up. Anything that does not require to much thinking would be good i think. I mean jesus christ why does this dude need to talk so much. Stop saying stupid shit already. Enjoy your pornstar girlfriend,make a run in a Bellator tourny and get that 100k and keep fucking random porn girls together with your girl. But please stop fucking talking . And get a manager. Yes it cost money but in your case it would be money well spend.
