    Tim, I respect you dude but the UFC doesn't respect you and a lot of other fighters, so go where the money's at. I don't know how they could pay a WWE professional actor more than a hard core MMA fighter, I guess their trying to make an other fake wrestling show, who knows. All I know is you put it all on the line and one day you'll be in the MMA Hall of Fame for sure, but some you have to lead the way and go to an other organization so the UFC stops treating their fighter like crap. Zuffa makes so many millions off pay-view fights alone it's ridiculous even boxers make more than you guys and MMA has boxing beat. No one will hate for leaving the UFC but they might open their eyes and respect you more.

    You said something stupid and now man up to it Silvia. He was making a light threat and said his manager was president of M1 with a smile. How else does he expect people to take it?

    Maybe M-1 can reach the greatness Pride once was and that we all miss dearly. :(

    I think M1 will be a lot like Pride. They will draw a lot of the Pride fans by making it similar but will improve on it where they can. I can't wait till they get more depth in their talent pool. Fedor needs some comp.

    it's sad how these mma orgs are turning out. first, pride loses its tv deal and then disintegrates…. due to the yakuza. and now, it looked like ufc was the savior. but after the lawsuit against randy couture and trying to dominate the mma world, dana white is really making the ufc look bad.

    Very true words Derek, the millions of Japanese fans that would attend the PRIDE events was ridiculous,more than the UFC. PRIDE was respected throughout the world but why all that drama with the Yakuza doesn't even add up to the billions in revenue lost and jobs lost because PRIDE employed many people.The Yakuza has been around forever and will be here after were gone but I bet Dana and Zuffa had to do with getting all that B/S started so they could get their hands on PRIDE. There's more bad than good to say about the UFC many unhappy fighters means the other opportunities, and I hope they start leaving, because I'm feedup with the UFC's bullshit.
