Sean Salmon: Chuck should fight as long as he wants

Sean Salmon puts up his occasional post at MMA Junkie, after a dominant unanimous decision win (30-27, 30-26, 30-25!) over John Doyle in the ROC. He has a lot of updates, but the one that struck me was:

We are required to have all of our medicals in order before every fight, or we will not be allowed to fight. If all of his medicals are clear, I think he should fight until he no longer wants to.

Same thing with Ken Shamrock, Don Frye, and Dan Severn. If they wanna fight, let 'em fight, provided it's sanctioned. Sanctioning protects fighters, to a certain extent. Even the lower tier guys who don't have the fame. They not only deserve to make a living, but hell, it's competition! If you want them to quit, you have to beat them into it. If you can't beat them, they ain't quitting. So to Chuck: Fight til you don't want to anymore. Salmon is exactly right. If Chuck has to leave the UFC to do it, I'll support him. I think Dana White talked himself into a corner on this one. He's forgotten what the urge is like.
We'll see.
