that was different .. in 2001, who knew even if mma was going to be a successful sport, the money wasn't even that great (i know money is not everything), so back then, the idea was, should i even bother with a sport that might not even exist in the near future... now it is 2009, can jens hang with up and coming kids coming into the sport, who knows, but i think we have seen his best days and he has nothing to prove .. he is not like an aging football star who hasn't won a superbowl, he has been a champ
why get smoked against these youngsters in the cage when you can train someone to beat them .. that is all, if he wants to fight, who am i? it is his decision
