I dont know... i cant blame the guy.

He has ALOT to gain... but just like playing the Lotto... the %%%%%%%%% is extremely low. Mitrione is not going to beat Cormier so why take the fight??

Quite happy about this as that is not a fight that interests me in the slightest. Hope they do find Cormier a top guy though...he for sure deserves it.

The Mir matchup was bad enough but at least it was hypable. Mitrione? That's insulting.

Edit: jesus christ I didn't even notice that dana publicly insulted the guy for it... What a DICK.

Not an ideal fight for Cormier but even beating Mitrione, you know he's getting a No.1 Contender or Title fight next... makes no difference who he beats, he'll be awarded the same, they just need to honor this final Showtime fight.

Matt picking on a LHW and turning this down? Not good. I'm waiting for his story though because Dana will publicly throw guys under the bus if things don't go his way.

Sometimes I think it is fair for a fighter to turn down a fight, in this case, Mitrione is very out classed and this was a wise choice.

Matt just got his ass kicked by fecking Kongo. Why would he accept a fight with Cormier? This isn't like Jones turning down a fight with a lesser ranked opponent. It's like a lamb avoiding the slaughter. I love Mitrione, but Cormier would brutalize him.
