    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    On a side note, I have to also laugh about one person who **** talked Starnes. My girlfriend, who is a novice to the fight game, watched this fight with me at home. My jaw dropped when she said, and I **** you not,

    'What is that fucker doing backing up like that this whole fight? Theres only one guy who is allowed to fight backing up and thats Chuck Lidell, and this guy is no Lidell".

    I just turned and looked at her with my jaw open. I was so proud. She called that perfectly! Now I have to tell her that KenmpoFist says she shouldnt talk ****!

    So he intentionally sold his PPV-and-ticket-paying fans a rip-off to make a point? Wait to go Starnes. I sympatize with the idea, but c'mon, this is lame. His camp better have a good press release to justify this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Really?

    I hope he went to lawyers with that ****. If that really was the case he could of just shown up, started the fight, and had someone throw in the towel.

    Yes, I looked it up on another thread pay sucks horribly for lower tier fighters. Thing is, there are better ways to protest.

    If Kalibs fight was in the undercard, I wouldn't care so much.
    Styles makes fights, and when i first heard of this match up, i knew it'd be a decision of some sort since neither one of them are known for blazing starts and killer instincts; especially with one guy who is known for 'playing it safe'

    Whoever decided on putting this fight as a swing bout before the 2 main events, totally shoulda known better, cuz at least half of the undercards were worthy bouts to put on the main card (like Stout/Clementi - both big enough names and have been on main cards before, or as soju said, the mcdonald/doerkson fight)

    It wasn't fair to Quarry, who IMO tried his best to make a fight out of it. And the fans realized that and cheered for him

    The theory of Kalib throwing this fight is interesting. Of all the cities to choose to do this in. You do it in your own country? Dude, he's the only Canadian that fought that night that LOST fans!

    Kind of like how Mark Kerr messed his body up with steroids to keep kids from juicing up.

    I hope for Starnes's sake that this is just a case of something Starnes said being misinterpreted. Otherwise, what a fucktard to think that the best way to protest low fighter pay is to fight in a way that doesn't deserve any pay.

    I'm not a fighter. I've never "talked ****" on a fighter. They're in the cage. I'm not. That being said, Starnes blows. He deserves what he gets here. Period. I was watching that fight with an actual amatuer fighter who would have cut both arms off and fought as a torso Monty Python style to be in his place, and Starnes just ran away. Then he acted like a punk immediatetly afterwards. "Shut-up ******. Why aren't you fighting?" I would level the same question right back at him. Honestly Ke?poFist, if you really do respect the actual fighters as much as you say you do you should really be railing against Starnes for pissing on an opportunity so many others would have killed themselves for.

    If this was really about low pay for fighters there were MUCH BETTER ways to go about it than this.

    On a side note I have to say that I was impressed by the fact that the Canadian fans were booing the hometown guy for his performance despite initially booing Nate. That part at the end where they were swithcing the camera back and forth between the two was priceless!
