"Why I Quit" (sub title "the UFC and in my Fight with GSP")

Would get me to buy this book.

He did that once. Would GSP's book be called "Why I tap from strikes"

K-1 was offering me $187,500 per fight - five times what the UFC was offering - and I was still willing to stay with them for one-third of that amount. This was when the relationship took a turn for the worse, and my view of White changed drastically. From that point on, I knew when it came to money, we couldn't trust him to treat us right. Did I like him at the dinner table? Sure. But at the negotiating table? Not at all. The pressure to perform and safeguard other people's money had changed him, even though he was constantly bragging to anyone willing to listen about how 'big this thing was going to be.' Things between us would never be the same.
According to those numbers...The UFC was paying Penn 37,500 a fight. K1 offered 187,500.. he was willing to stay with the UFC for 62,500. A little less than double.. that doesn't sound to bad actually....

Until you factor in a CONTRACT for the $37,500... that he had only 2 fights left on his CONTRACT at that time (pretty sure it was 2.. I will let the Penn N'huggers fact check that one).....

But hey.. that's me.. I sign a contract for "x".. that's what I get..I don't expect "y" all of the suddn cause I get lucky and tap Matt.. or even if you "figure" skill.. just cause you win doesn't mean you all of the sudden worth more... IMO...

He quit on the UFC.. while champ.. and acted like a douche when the UFC was ready to "move on"... 2 quits in my book.

He quit IN BETWEEN ROUNDS... in the GSP fight...

GSP's quit book would be titled.. "I was a French Canuck that took the NY Midget lightly"
OR
"Damn those NY hands HURT!!!! But I didn't get hit between rounds."

Baby Jay could write a book called...."1001 excuses as to why people lose MMA fights..." That would be belivable.


Sorry man.. Baby Jay fights great.. No doubt.. just not as good as Edgar apparently.
