Wow, didn't realise throwing in the towel was illegal in the UFC. Is this to avoid corruption or some other reason?

I quite like the concept, reminds of Roman days (they did it Roman days yeah?)

it's illegal in the sense that if you do it, your fighter loses

Some of them decide to publicly change their mind on a fight after it happens, which just makes them look even more inept
the only time i remember this happening recently is with Nelson Hamilton rescoring the Shogun-Machida fight, and his argument - that having no TV feed caused him to miss some of the action - is a legit one

"Didn't you lose your last 2 fights? Please don't piss me off, I actually have respect for Ryan. Don't you have a fight scheduled? Focus on yourself instead of weather I'm ready or not? Are you familiar with the strike policy in baseball?"

When you put quotes like that side by side with all of his religiosity, it really makes the Jesus stuff sound more self-aggrandizing than anything else. Not that he means to do it, he just doesn't know any better.

Contrast to Rich Franklin, who seems like a genuinely cool, amiable dude.

like duncan pointed out, immediately before that prima donna outburst he posted

Chael did the same thing to Anderson following a press conference the week of the fight.

Actually they squared off and then when they turned to face the cameras Anderson wouldn't stop looking at Chael so no please don't try to bring Chael down to Anderson's despicable levels of disrespect

I am about the least dedicated person to weight cutting you could possibly come up with.

does this mean it's not really much of a pain for you to cut the 15lbs? I always assumed anything over 10lbs meant suffering a great deal (even if you're doing it the correct way)
