I know Anderson has been the champion for a long long time now. But the UFC has brought more fans to Anderson than what Anderson has brought to the UFC. The UFC doesnt have to have these guys. They should be honored to fight in the best league where they will have the most exposure and from that, make the most money. If Anderson would have never been signed by the UFC, whoever was the current 185lb champion (likely Chael Sonnen or Damien Maia IMO) would be ranked #1 in the world by most if not all sources.
That being said; I dont think its a really big deal. Anderson has to come off some money that would bankrupt me, but he likely won't miss too bad. Anderson may have a really good explination as he doesn't make a habit of this. This is Dana saying "Hey, if I'll fine Anderson Silva, my #1 pound for pound, you other guys dont even think about f**king around!"
