My point actually wasn't that nick is a saint it was about anderson has even more responsibility since he's the champ and has been for a while so there really is no excuse, and anderson isn't nick so no showing in his case won't promote the fight since he isn't a do what I want guy like nick is.

Dana said himself it was fairly small.
Exactly; since the event is fairly small and local technically no showing an event will hype it more. No one outside the local area would have even heard about this event if he showed up. Now I know about it and anyone else who follows this forum or social media related to the UFC know about it.

Doesn't matter how small or unimportant the media event was its his job to show up.

If he feels that way then he should quit now if he has "done enough" for the ufc. But really that 50k should go to weidman since he isn't making anderson silva money

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!"

I doubt it was for the reason Dana gave but you have to fine him if he doesn't have a really good reason for missing it like a family emergency.
