    It's part of being an adult. I feel like that's the final boss level of life and adulthood.

    I'm in no hurry. Plenty of others spitting them out left and right. At 35 the door is closing on me as the days go by. But if it doesn't happen then cool.

    I recommend grandchildren first. So much less work. You can spoil them. Give them lots of treats. Send them home when they've wore you out, cause they will.

    So much this; haha. I love how people pounce on understanding what a daughter, who's not theirs, in Brazil, thinks or does not think about her working father. Without context or actual, direct, in-the-family purview of the situation.

    I wish he hadn't clarified shit and kept it moving. He doesn't owe keyboard psychiatrists a fucking thing.

    I’d care more if he wasn’t paying child support. Maybe the daughter has an awesome step father and doesn’t need him. Who knows it’s not my situation. I personally can’t fathom spending a year away from my kid unless it was a military situation and I’m no longer in the military. I do understand that if he wants to be a world champ then most of his focus has to be on him.

    Kos looked like Cody this past weekend. Dropping the left while he threw the right with everything he had. Got caught about the same too.

    legit question......if Till misses weight should Woodley refuse to fight?
    Would serve UFC right. Why should Till get show money (even if he's fined) for showing up over weight again.

    Absolutely; no fucking question. And I wish more fighters would do exactly that - Dodson did (in Brazil, if I'm not mistaken).

    Closet bigoted "fans" who would use that decision as a reason to hate on the guy be damned - hell, if anything, I wish Tyron would egg those morons on. God bless his self-respect, because if he did, I think his wallet would benefit. The Angry Black Guy thing sells, and the biggest consumers are those same closeted goofs who don't see the double standards.

    I still maintain that fighters who miss weight should have 95%+ of their pay gone*, or** a straight-up forfeit loss. I don't see how anyone could logically be against that, but whatever.

    I'm surprised no one has filed a breach of contract case against someone who's missed weight.

    (*If the opponent takes the fight, :beguiled:.)

    Why on earth would the fighter fight if they were only getting 5% of their pay? Wouldn’t they just claim to be sick or something?

    Hopefully Till is getting good advice on his weight. I think this will be a good fight?

    I agree but then you risk not getting paid after paying for a camp and stuff.

    He said he would if Till missed. Just more money in his pocket anyway.

    I think issues like that are completely up to the fighter and can’t blame them either way.

    What good would refusing to fight do? it wouldn't be a title fight anyway, he'd keep the belt, but still make bucks? if he refuses to fight he's refusing to be paid.

    Sounds silly to me

    I don't get fans that whine people don't get paid enough then come around and claim they should refuse the pay they are offered.

    Make up your mind
