The UFC should be jumping on this and speaking to him. See if they can help. If the main problem is money, the UFC should sort him out. It's not right when a fighter this important to his division has to downgrade their training because of money.
Either way. Good luck to him. He deserves it.
I assure you him beating jon jones and becoming lhw champion will make him more money than losing grappling and footwork skills and staying in sweden with your peak now reached and grappling diminishing every day. It's almost as stupid as phillipou going to a kickboxing camp after being at serra-longos.
