I also think he could give up the belt now, immediately enter Hall of Fame and do UFC exhibition fights from now on. But what ever the king wants...
This is a good point and he did the same against Irvin and Griffin. Absolutely ZERO upsides in fighting against a dangerous journeyman in The Sandman. The UFC booked that fight to counter program Affliction I think. I actually watched it while discussing it with a UK british fighter and he was talking about his past then he paused when Anderson caught his leg and knocked em out. We were like WTF! How do you catch the very first kick and counter...
Ducking is a very strong word, I prefer exploring his options. When the time is right they'll fight. Cung's a crafty one and can pose some interesting challenges in like the first three minutes then it goes downhill. I mean downhill. He's so old, if only he came in to the game 20 years ago.
