So long and thanks for the fish.

 

He fixed my camera once so that I could get my picture taken with Amir. He smelled like weed ja ja ja.

"I'm retiring from MMA today cracked my rib and can't fight sept 20, Bellator said they can't find me a fight till the next tournament and I can't afford not fighting that long and need a job, sorry if I let anyone down but it isn't paying the bills" Phone Post 3.0

Damn, Bellator is handcuffing its fighters. Not the first one I've heard who was told they have no fights for them until 2014. Phone Post

You kidding right? He's scheduled to fight September 20th and is backing out of the fight because he hurt himself. You blame that on Bellator too?

This is a big problem with their tournament format. You get injured and you have to wait until next time. Very short sighted to sign with Bellator.

They can't find him a fight until the next tournament. That could be next summer or fall, that's a long time to go without income. Phone Post

Once they have 3 seasons going per year their format will work for those fighters. Phone Post 3.0

I doubt they couldn't find him a fight, they do non tournament fights all the time, sounds like he wants out of mma

Why is he even talking about getting a fight when he has a cracked rib and just pulled out of this one?

Not at all. If the tournament fight falls through, they are stuck until the next tournament at that weight class. It's not like he hurt himself skydiving. He was injured doing his job, which is preparing for his fight.

Being a full-time fighter who depends on the money he makes from fighting doesn't work if he fights once or twice a year. Phone Post

Man that sucks. Im a big fan of him as a fighter and as a person he comes across very likeable. Just saw this picture on his facebook.

 

Look who is to his left.
