Dana White thinks the reason why team mates don’t want to fight is because one is scared of the other

October 21, 2010 All MMA News, UFC

UFC President, Dana White has today put an interesting slant on the reason why certain fighters are so reluctant to face their team mates inside the octagon, explaining it must be that one is scared he’ll lose to the other.

Speaking via the Jim Rome show earlier today, Dana said:

“The bottom line, and the way it’s been in the UFC, is that it’s a camp thing. You’ll find a couple of camps that are saying, ‘Oh, no. This guy is my friend. I’m not fighting him.’ What? This isn’t personal. This isn’t, ‘Oh, I hate him. I’m going to fight him.’ You train, and you work hard to be the best mixed martial artist you can be, and you’re going to compete against other mixed martial artists to prove you’re the best.”

“I personally think that when one guy [refuses to fight a teammate], that means he’s saying, ‘I train with this guy, and this guy is probably going to kick my ass. I’m not confident enough to fight this guy.’”

Dana has since been provoked by the comments of Jon Jones and Jon Fitch who continue to refuse to fight Rashad Evans and Josh Koscheck respectively if the promotion proposes the fight. How do you stand on the whole team mate vs. team mate debate? Tell us what you think…

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
