Here's the bad part about having the UFC in all these different countries now. Now you get a champ who is dominant and marketable and he holds the company ransom to fight outside of his comfort zone. I don't have a lot of respect for that attitude. I highly doubt a guy like GSP demands to fight in Canada and would hold the UFC ransom if he had to fight in Vegas.

With that said, Anderson agreed to fight in Brazil for this fight so the UFC had to do something to accomodate for this fight.
