What's the solution?
Dana was talking about this recently. It was suggested to him that fighters have more incentive to pull out with minor injuries now, knowing that a loss in the UFC can be really significant, whereas before there was less top competition so many would just fight injured.
He said he doesn't believe that since they all want to get paid and if you don't fight you don't make money and they're just going to have to tone it down in training.
Same interview apparently the meeting he had with Brock was the worst meeting ever, so I guess that means Brock said he'll come back for $10million and a title shot, and Lorenzo lol'd at him.
