    Good read as always dude. Its a 50/50 situation, can see both sides of it, think you went over it more in depth on a podcast awhile ago - well the Jones saga anyway, made some good points for both sides of the argument. If you are top of the pile I suppose you can be more choosy and rightly so if you want to stay there, not taking last minute changes etc, not choosing opponents though...

    every time i think about it I come to a standstill. who to side with? no-one is my best answer. think the validity of requests to compete - and resulting answers - should be decided on a case by case basis.

    As Jimi said its all about the context and risk vs. reward.

    Think you guys are right, I was talking to someone on Reddit who wanted to put guidelines to it I.E If some one pulls out 3wks from a fight rather that 2 months sounds good but every situation different. I think its down to the UFC to make fighters feel comfable they can risk fighting hard and as long ad they do they'll have a job while at the same time making it competitive. It's a tough job.

    Too many variables to have a standard on it, depends if the fighter has been in a camp, depends if the fighter has any injuries he may not have disclosed, depends if there is a bump in payscale for taking the fight, if the fighter thinks he can easily win the fight or not, if he needs the money or not, depends where he is the rankings and if this would bump him up or just leave him sat where he was anyway and so on and so forth...
