We’ve heard this one so often over the years from one person that, by this point, as soon as you hear it, the words board the express train in one ear and zip right out the other: “Fighter A doesn’t want to fight Fighter B.” Now, if you’ve followed mixed martial arts longer than a day, I didn’t even have to tell you that the person making this statement is UFC president Dana White. And that he’s referring to a fight fans really want to see. And he’s implying the fight hasn’t been made because a professional fighter who has made it to the elite level has suddenly decided, “Nah, I don’t feel like doing the one thing that has fueled my existence my entire adult life right at one of my biggest moments.” What White almost always means: This fighter has the audacity to ask for a pay raise in my $7 billion company during a time ESPN guarantees an enormous sum of money for each pay-per-view event, so all we have to do is show up and let it rain money
