MMA is full of fighters and martial artists. Fighters would fight their mom for a shot at the title. Martial artists would defer out of respect and tradition. Black House is a camp full of martial artists.
Although I do agree to extent and respect their integrity.Why should Santos step aside though? Nog had already achieved so much, I would think if Nog cared so deeply and it was indeed like a son to him. Wouldnt it be him to step aside? If its one thing I hate its hypocrits.They are adults, they chose to make this their job.If they cant handle it shouldnt have both signed contracts and be in same weight class. Makes sense to me, what did they think that one always be under the other? That never be put in situation where they should face each other to decide who will progress?Not like they dont spar together, whats the harm in finding out who is the better man,really? I think Nog would be selfish and far from compassionate to let Dos Santos bow out.Bottom line is if they cant handle what the job entails, shouldnt be in same organization.Its not fair to the fans, or to other fighters who wait for a shot.If they cant put on their big boy pants they should go ahead and put it out there as to not waste everybodys time. Whats the point in having a tournament, if come time to see who DESERVES a shot one of them gonna bow out. I dont think the "honor" card going to fly with White either.
