Leverage my ass

Midsy has a list of the 14 guys he thinks have leverage when dealing with UFC management:

  • Michael Bisping
  • Randy Couture
  • Rashad Evans
  • Forrest Griffin
  • Matt Hughes
  • Rampage Jackson
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Chuck Liddell
  • Frank Mir
  • Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
  • B.J. Penn
  • Anderson Silva
  • Wanderlei Silva
  • Georges St. Pierre

In a pinch I’d say the UFC would still bitchslap the large majority of the rest of these guys if they happen to disagree over something of importance. Hell, you’ve already seen it with Wanderlei Silva, Randy Couture, and BJ Penn.

Also, don’t forget some of the other guys who used to have ‘leverage’: Tito Ortiz, Andrei Arlovski, Brandon Vera, and Roger Huerta. And sure, while Brandon Vera lost his leverage via shitty performances in the cage, the UFC did a good job of showing Andrei and Tito who’s the boss. And Roger Huerta? That uppity boy got put in his place too, didn’t he?
