Personally, I thought that was a good match up for Melendez, especially at this point in Khabib's young career.  I don't think Nate would be avoiding this fight unless he thought it was below his standards.

What's that? Another guy that "nobody wants to fight"?

It's not like there's a new one of those every three months or anything.

 

Who still buys into this bullshit?

ChaosOverkill -

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.

Very well said Phone Post 3.0

Khabib is at the helm of the Russian Muslim invasion. In a way, I'm glad Melendez/Diaz dropped out bc they are definitely apart of my top favs at 155, but the Eagle is the future. I'd say TJ Grant, Jim Miller, or Michael Johnson...although he deserves to face TOP TIER opponents. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE

I have said it before, but the Diaz brothers need to have a manager who will make all public announcements on their behalf. Dana is a disgrace for his constant fighter bashing, but the Diaz bros always make matters worse with their inane interviews and immature "tweets".

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.

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.

What do u think he should have said when asked the question? He never said he was scared, just said he turned the fight down. He does kind of sour my stomach sometimes, but nobody is perfect. I think he does a great job and I may not like some of his antics, but it's better than the political correct bs EVERYBODY else in his position gives us. Phone Post 3.0

That's quite convenient timing Phone Post 3.0

 

Dana goes off on Twitter, reporter finds nearest teammate/ manager/ friend or the fighter himself if possible etc, for facts or close to them to refute Dana's nonsense. Yeah it is convenient cause it's how it works.

 


You need to calm down a little bro.

your butthurt behavior is making me cringe and sweat.

melendez wants that title, he doesn't want to fight a guy like khabib. we get it, we know why. You don't have to go pretending for him. nobody blames him for ducking a fight that would be bad if he lost and even if he won would make him have to fight again before he got a title shot.

Convince me why I should care about you or anyone's butthurt at my opinion, and I'll go from there. Not holding my breath though.

His next tweet was about how Jake is the only guy from that camp with balls for fighting Lombard or something to that effect, so yes that is what Dana is saying unfortunately.

Yet if Jake smothers Lombard he will slag him and already slags all fighters like Jake who fight his style.

Dana has played this game before. While technically both gil and nate may have turned down the fight, the reason has not been stated which is deceitful on his part.
we have heard nate/nick before complain about guys just laying on top of them or circling around avoiding the fight. but gil has no problem with those styles. So I don't think he would turn down a fight with no reason.

every body in the top of the division has either just fought or is already matched-up.
Just fought: miller (dec 28), johnson (dec 28), barboza (dec 14), green (dec 14), maynard (nov 30), cerrone (nov 16).
matched up: diego-jury, henderson-thomson, khabilov-dos anjos.
injured: tj grant, pettis

if shields is correct, gil wants to fight in april. can you really blame the rest of the guys including nate not to take a fight with a guy like khabib on six weeks notice for ufc 170.

EvilMaster - Look up the legal differences between "employees" and "contractors" Morpheus1976.



So the GSP situation was just Dana "Pulling the reigns on his contractor?" a contractor that has done everything and more he's been asked, no room for his own thought and problems?

I LOVE DIAZ (no homo) - Keep throwin' your fighters under the bus asshole, then wonder why every fighter besides the Champ is referred to as a "Can" by his army of Troll followers. nobody has any respect for these guys and why should they when their "boss" treats them like pieces of shit?

It also hurting PPV's buys, throwing top fighters under the bus.
Dana has done this many times, Lorenzo needs to step in, he is a business man and understands this.

lol

 

 

UFC 168 had 1.1 million buys. I think the ppv side of the corp. is doing just fine, Mr Greenburg.


watch it go down, now GSP and Silva are gone.

This is actually probably one of the most forward thinking moves Dana has made in awhile.

How legit is Khabib? Pretty fuckin' legit bro.

How marketable is Khabib? Pretty fuckin' marketable bro.

Start the hype train now. So they can sell UFC PPV's with sound bytes of dudes not wanting to fight him.

GSP may be gone, Anderson may be gone. Time to start building up the next generation. A stone cold sambo killer from Russia.

vu

dhughes - He's in a difficult spot - insanely talented but not well known. The top guys see no upside in fighting him.

I'm sure someone will step up and so long as he keeps winning, people will notice.
VU.
We also need to rmbr that it's a dangerous move for any established LW. If they lose they risk being outcast from a future title shot or worse being cut altogether. Phone Post 3.0
