Couture vs. Fedor would've made a ton of money and publicity. Kos fighting outside wouldn't
What pisses me off is that the UFC is determining their roster by who agrees to sign their lifetime rights to a videogame! I mean, I can see how it would be frustrating but you don't get rid of fighters over stuff that has nothing to even do with fighting to begin with. The agree to fight anyone they are given, they follow the contract they are currently under. So why would a video game contract have to be that important?
It's more than just the contract to Dana White, it's the fact that Koscheck was a nobody before the UFC, and he was excelled into main card status almost instantly after appearing on the Ultimate Fighter. Josh, literally, owes his entire career to the UFC, without them, he wouldn't even have the opportunity to appear in a video game, contract or not. Besides, what is the likelihood that he is going to appear in an opposing MMA game anytime soon?
I can appreciate Josh's opinion, but it's practically moot in the grand scheme of things. Self righteousness does NOT pay the bills, and when you are in such a volatile line of work, you can't take chances. Simple as that.
