Three of the last four fighters, Josh Grispi, Mark Hominick, and Manny Gamburyan have a combined UFC record of 2-10.
If he wants a short camp he should have that right especially considering both what he's been through and what he brings to the table.
The way I see it, if he hadn't have been impatient, he'd be on that card already. He decided he wasn't going to wait, just because his plans fell through doesn't mean someone else should be forced to wait.
