Man, screw that. If you're fighting for a shot at the freaking title in the UFC, you should cut yourself somewhere under your short's line, bleed out a pound, and get it stitched up. I kid you not.
I mean c'mon, this guy has the opportunity for a massive pay-off, the chance for the title which signifies him as the UFC's best middleweight, fame, and years of sponsorship fortunes and he gives it up because he can't lay off the sushi? Screw that man. If fighting is your life, than you do whatever it takes or you don't deserve to be there.
