I don't care
He should get 2 wives and start a cat fight
He should learn to fly, but would he end up in a dogfight again?
He should marry a real bitch
He should eat all his meals with dogs, with Alpo as main course
He should get shot by Snoop Dogg
He should be given to Scooby Doo as a Scooby Snack
Bring him to DP, and let Blackdog kick his ass

I think he should able to have a dog. It's not like if he buys a collie puppy he is going to train it to fight. What he did before was to train traditional fighting dogs to fight. I know it may be a shocker to you but he probably loves dogs. Get over it people.
: My last words on this side of the topic: You clearly don't understand fighters, if you think ALL fighters do it ONLY for the money. For instance, that doesn't explain amateur fighters at all, and lots of amateurs have no intrest in going pro.
If ALL fighters ONLY did it for the money, there would be no UFC. Everybody would be in Boxing, because THAT is where the BIG money is.
I know what my motives were for fighting. The money was secondary, when there was money involved at all. I wanted the challenge. I wanted to test myself. I wanted to be a bad-ass. I liked to fight. I enjoyed the feel of catching someone with a right hook and watching them keel over and kiss the canvas. I never expected to make a million dollars, and didn't really care much about the money. If I had I would have stuck to the officially-sanctioned boxing circuit.
Are there some who are in it entirely for the money? Perhaps. But for most it is about a lot more than just prizes. You just flat-out don't understand fighters, clearly.

I also have no problem killing animals, even dogs for food. What I do have a problem with is torturing them to death for entertainment. I am also completely convinced that anyone engaged in said torture cannot be rehabilitated.

Late to the thread but my choice as a dog owner, is NO WAY! He gave up that privilege.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Believe it or not, we're on the same side. Yes, people do have egos and want to have them embellished. There have been people who have quit promising careers, just to join the MMA. However, the people who quit those careers all did the math, first. They felt that they were excellent at some form of fighting and all they had to do was to get their ground game together, and they could make a mint in the UFC. OR- All they had to do was to get the boxing skills together, and they could make a mint in the UFC.
Haven't you heard this story like about a thousand times already!
Yes! You're right! Amateur fighters are usually young fighters who dream of becoming pro one day. There are amateur fighters who got into it, just for the training and the love of the sport who do other things professionally. Most amateurs, don't remain amateurs for too long because there's no reward in it. Even if you're good, everybody gets their clock clean at least once. Getting your clock cleaned that one time is usually a wake up call for the wise. Some just can't believe it and they want to schedule a bunch of fights as soon as possible. The very next time, that second time that they get their clock cleaned is usually the final wake up call and you begin to see a lack of that high level of enthusiasm, they once had. The scheduling of fights are one thing but the actual training is another, suddenly they don't want to put in the work anymore. Eventually, they just stop showing up.
Amateurs are usually soon to be professionals, if they're serious. If they get their clocks clean, then so what? They just keep training and getting better. They are tenacious and relentless. Why? They feel that they have an innate edge. They feel that deep down inside, they can beat most people. Afterall, they've most probably been bullies and are used to being winners, anyway. That or they've always known they could knock just about anybody out with their right hand. They have that magic somewhere! They're Not going to college and were lucky if they just made it out of high school. I've never heard any real fighter say that money wasn't in their plan somewhere down the line.
I've heard many say that they'll be glad if and when they could get out of the fight game...
Many fighters have felt trapped and they've wanted OUT! They would say things like, "Ok after this next fight, I want to fight so and so...That way after fighting so and so, and we win, we could schedule a fight with SOME BIG NAME and I could get paid and get out!"
