I don't get why Pettis was scrapped? Because of the price? He's saving a card, pay him a million. Not like they can't afford it. Respectfully I disagree. If you've been in an mma gym 7 odd years ago compared to now, its an entirely different type of people, and an entirely different atmosphere. At least in the good ones. The street thugs, generally speaking, don't last in the sport being as competitive and professionally demanding as it is now, whereas a lot of modern fighters are people who could happily have gone, or were doing, something else and made a happy living.
