The new up and comers can't take the risks and put it all on the line because they know if they get flash ko'ed in a blaze of glory they won't be cheered for their efforts they'll be fired by their boss so they fight safe, they fight not to lose instead of fighting to win. It's easier to be employed fighting like Fitch than it is to fight like Silva, there is a distinct possibility that the pay structure and ease of which fighters are kicked out creates the boring fights on the undercards because anyone that's not a Jon Jones type is going to fight safe to be able to eat.
Then work a second ******* job. Everyone wants to fight full before they even make it to the UFC then guess what idiot, you're going to be hungry. Guys like gsp worked full time while they were still in the UFC so they could support themselves. Ronda rousey worked three jobs before she made it. Get the **** over not making enough on the undercard to support yourself and your entire family and pay to train. Work a job during the day you ****wit. I'm so sick of these guys bitching all the time, they are ******* pussies. Work like everyone else and then train so one day you can fight full time, you don't get to just quit your job and train and become a millionaire.
