As other's said, thats Mirko, its not that he doesn't respect the UFC, he just doesn't care i think think. For Mirko you have to earn it you have to show your a fighter.
Btw Eddie shouldn't have taken the fight, he was a stepping stone and he knew it. You could tell by his stand alone he was fighting to stay alive from the 4:49 mark.
What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
