Quoteworthy:

“People like to be on the side that’s winning. They’re supportive when you’re winning and critical when you’re losing. I still get some sweet hate mails pretty regularly. There are some gyms with guys who begged me to come in there and train and do seminars before that fight and who wouldn’t return my calls or talk to me afterwards…. It’s good. It separates people who are really supportive and back you from people that are just trying to jump on your wagon while you’re successful…. [Being granted a release from the UFC] was something I’m happy about. I’m glad I’m not fighting there and will be fighting independently where I want and for whoever wants to pay me.”

Kalib Starnes talks about life after his dreadful fight against Nate Quarry at UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2? earlier this year, which will perhaps go down as the worst performance ever inside the Octagon in modern history. The former contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) indicates that he broke his foot early in the fight, causing him to disengage and flee from “The Rock” the entire fight. UFC President Dana White, as well as those who watched the fight, were generally disgusted with the fight — the negative reaction he received was quite remarkable, actually. Starnes asked to be released from the organization shortly thereafter and the request was granted. He will return to action against Kala Kalohe Hose under the Destiny banner on November 15.

You tell 'em, Kalib.

Everyone knows that it's much more satisfying to be the one delivering the pizza rather than being the guy who owns the shop.

There is a huge difference from losing and being a disgrace and how Nate clowned him made it even more disgraceful.

He should just apologize and say he has changed and stop wearing dance club glasses in public

You can see from his fights in the UFC that Starns has a history of quitting fights. Why on earth would anyone want a fighter that quits to fight in their organization????

Starnes said he is going to fight whoever pays him, cept I dont think he will be fighting for any big company. So no one is really going to pay him.

and isn't the reason he was running is because he did not want to get cut, because he was not gettting paid enough to cover his training medical and travel? What and another smaller org is going to pay him more afteer the Quarry, and he thought he was in a sucky position before, ain't seen nothing yet.

I would like to see some small time organization sign Kalib and give him a chance to work his way back up to the big org's if he can. If he can redeem himself, good for him. If not we can all just be happy with the fact that someone is periodically punching him in the face.
