Wherever the logic is, it doesn’t seem clear. Is it possible that Fowler is losing enough to erase his job of the year? Perhaps. Is it likely? No.
What is likely, however, is that Uncle Chael and the rest of the SUG put Fowler in a position where he has to dig deep and show his true skills. He hasn’t said no until now. Why start now?
“It’s anyone, any size, he faces them,” Sonnen said. “There are no complaints, no arguments, no ‘my shoulder hurts’ or ‘this date isn’t working out.’ No excuses.
