The man wants to get paid. He's great at what he does, actually he's excellent at what he does. When I read the previous news about him retiring soon I knew there was something else to the story. He's not going to retire until he earns enough money that will have him and his family set for the rest of their lives.

Why do you think he wanted the fight with Roy Jones Jr.? Yes, I'm sure he's after the challenge as well. But Anderson is a family man, he's stated that he fights to provide for his family. In other words, he's the type of employee who works tons of overtime and is always striving for that promotion.

Well, that's the way I see it. Another humble champion like this that comes to mind is Fedor Emelianenko. Family man, who fights to provide for his family.

Sweet, this is much better news. I can understand what he is saying, beings how he hasn't been out of the second round in all of his ufc fights. On top of that he has taken almost no damage. Dude could fight the next day after almost all his fights.

I wonder if they have offered him some super fights but the other person has turned it down...

I hope they sign him for 6 fights but he only fights 3-4 times a year as he might get injured.

lol ok man if you say so. I guess what the government has told me during our process has all been a lie. You can't get a Visa just by getting married, you still have to go through the process. Sure he might have paid 25K for the woman to lie and marry him, but its not like they are just going to hand over a Visa cause he got married

ok, i thought you were saying all a person has to do is get married and then they get a Visa no problem. Our marriage is legit and we are having a terrible time getting our citizenship finished. My wife and our 6 year old son are still stuck in Mexico and have been since Feb., but the process has been going on for 5 years now. Maybe if I had money it would be different, but I barely have enough to live on, so it takes awhile I guess

I don't understand why they don't have these places to get this stuff done all over the country. You have to drive or fly all the way across the country just for the interviews and to get turned down
