That's why we have commissions who think of fighter safety even when the fighters aren't.

If that's the case the commissions should not let them fight at all if their so concerned over fighter safety, you dont need to have a former cut to get cut in a fight, hows a commission gonna help you not get KO'd or tapped? That's why it's stupid because there full of it and they destroy fights over small problems like cuts. Vitor fought bisping with a vig cut he had 10 days before the fight so there's no excuse.

People are quick to criticize. You think Gus wants to sit this out? It's his opportunity of a lifetime

Didn't Mirko have a big cut the day of against Anthony Perosh? I can't remember. I know Rothwell got pulled from that fight too due to injury.
