        Go home with your fcuking crying already!

    I was ok with the decision overall, i didnt think gus got robbed, but i wouldnt have been surprised had they announced gus as the new champ either.

    But what did confuse me was the 49-46 score on one judges card. SERIOUSLY?!

    When that was announced my first thought was “Cecil? Cecil Peoples? WTF are you doing judging fights in Canada? I mean its bad enough you get to judge here but in Canada? Really?”

    That was the only conclusion i could come to for that 49-46 score was that it was our man Cecil judging. I’ve yet to find an answer that makes more sense.

      Cecil didn’t judge that fight. Chris Lee gave the 49-46 decision.

      • Rence

        I knew that cecil didnt judge that fight…thats the joke i was making, because typically when a judge is that far away from the others, invariably its cecil. Or at least often enough that its no longer a surprise when he is “that judge”.

    When the salaries are announced a lot of the orelim. guys will make chump change. I’m not commenting on whether they deserve more money but rather asking who will pay the cost of an MRI or CT scan?
    When you make 8k for the fight and then have to shell out 2-3k for a medical procedure it doesn’t leave much money to live and train on.

    • draphta

      The UFC has medical insurance for the fighters. Do some research

      • George Sperry

        So how much is the deductible? Do you know that the insurance pays for medical tests ordered by a fight commission rather than as necessary for a Doctors opinion that the patient is alright?
        Try answering without the snotty attitude too.
