not only would they not go the hardest they could vs each other.. One of them will have to change camps and be out of there confort zone not getting there usually training camp in.. which is a huge disadvantage... I want to see fighters at there best fighting... Not glorified sparring matches between teamates.

i am sure if it is for a title shot, they will go hard .. you are right about the camp part .. plus, if dana even gets an inkling that they aren't going hard, he'd have no problem dumping them on their asses out of the ufc ...

this is a business, not a friendship. If you can't fight someone because you're friends, fair enough, and respect.. but don't expect any favors, like side stepping that opponent and getting a title shot. meh...

I'm aware that fighting isn't identical to jits competitions, but I had to roll with 2 of my teammates back-to-back in my last tournament. Guys I roll with all the time & I know their game & vice versa. Sometimes $h!t just happens.

No problem at all. Brothers should NOT fight, it's different with a teammate IMO. If Nick came over, Shields would probably go back up in weight and fight at 185. If not, I highly doubt Nick would not take the fight if it was for the title.

Here's a link to the video from Helwani's MMA Hour show that this info was pulled from. It's a 23min vid, really good stuff:
