I just don't see any reason for him to keep fighting, he's the best guy to have in front of the camera the company's ever had. Only a matter of time imo, Chael's smarter than he is tough, prove in that he was able to get the pay days he did with the fighting ability he had.

I wouldn't doubt his toughness. Skills and ability maybe.

Chael's great at what he does, he needs to save his body and use his brain by working for the UFC, like Chuck but way more involved and up front.
I didn't know Chael's accountant frequented MMAF

I hate Anderson but even I'll give him props for learning from Master Seagal.

Seems like he's come out and admitted it

Good for him. The more athletes get big sponsorships, the better

I'm a little curious as to what stir this actually caused. Or speculation. Nobody wants to actually drink that crap but terminal type II diabetics, so a guy right after a weigh-in slurpping a can of sugar down holding it like that is kind of obvious. Not news.
