and a lot of people on twitter know jack **** about MMA, same way they know jack **** about boxing. Same fools want Floyd to engage in a slug fest and know nothing about defensive boxing, or even the point of boxing in the first place. They prolly think the philly shell is a type of seafood or something.
This is MMA, wrestling is the dominant base, and Cormier is the best in the world at it. I really don't care about what a bunch of casual fans on twitter have to say.
Dana didn't sign Askren because Askren priced himself out of a deal. Nothing more, nothing less. If he kept his expectations in check he'd be in the UFC. It's a business, and Dana knows how to curb fighter's egos.
