Dana White doesn’t speak for everyone

  For every drip of octagon sweat perspiration, blood particle dripped and bone snap, crackled and popped, there is a constant monitoring, governing body that sees it all.

When GSP stepped away from the sport after barely keeping his belt in a split decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 last November, no one expected he would return to the spot

Sure he broke UFC records, but let’s consider the gorilla in the room for a moment. Jones has been breaking records since his cataclysmic rise in the sport of MMA began a few short years ago, ad nauseam. He now holds Tito
