It's definitely getting frustrating from a fans perspective, especially having Anderson,Rogerio,and Machida in the same division.

If you're a fighter and you refuse to fight someone, you're in the wrong business. This is for competition, its not like you have to kill your friend.

It's hard because you have a situation where these guys would have to find other training partners to train for a match. Its unfair if Rogerio fought Machida since it would put Anderson Silva in a tough position. He trains with both guys. And its not as easy as taking him out of the equation--obviously the big loser would be Machida since Rogerio has bigger connections in Brazil while Machida has his dad, his wife, and baby boy.

Machida will just have to train with Ken, Guile, and Blanca.

Alright, obviously it's not. But look at the goddamn matches that Blackhouse is preventing!

  • JDS vs Big Nog
  • Silva vs Machida
  • Machida vs Lil Nog
  • Silva vs Lil Nog
  • Feijao vs Filho
  • Feijao vs Jacare
  • Filho vs Jacare


I think I'm missing some too so feel free to add.

And who knows if Jose Aldo's next biggest competitor is going to inexplicably join Blackhouse and lock up the feathweight division. Blackhouse is straight-up stacked.
Good God. This has to be remedied somehow.

As a fan this sucks, but u gotta understand y these guys don't want to fight each other. There pretty much close friends such as brothers, the kind of friendship you find in a police. It hard trying to hurt someone that ur close with. Its like asking you to fight your best friend or someone u would die for.

I dunno, my best friend is my sparring partner and I'd face him in a match if it meant big bucks for both of us, and it wouldn't end one of our careers.

Hold on... apart from the Lyoto vs Silva thing, have any of the other Blackhouse fighters actually confirmed they wont fight each other? Ive seen quotes from Machida saying he wont fight Silva and Nog but that's it.

I'm certain its not a rule. It's up to the fighter surely?

If anybody has more quotes from other fighters I would like to see them.

I think this is the real problem. Even if these guys did fight each other, they would at least subconsciously be holding back because they don't want to seriously injure their friend. There's no real point in forcing Anderson and Lyoto to fight each other if they aren't going to give it 100%.
