Bryan Caraway has been getting a lot of heat lately for allegedly “Ducking Fights” with Urijah Faber, Aljamain Sterling and a few others. Well he sat in with MMA Junkie Radio and cleared up the controversy. He Also gave an update on Miesha Tate’s current position in the UFC and how she’s thinking about another career outside of MMA. Here’s a snippet.
“Guys call fights out, and they think just because they call a fight out that it’s going to happen,” he said. “I’m not the matchmaker. I don’t get to decide who fights who. Just because a guy’s calling me out, it’s, ‘Oh, he doesn’t want to fight me because he’s quiet on social media.’ I don’t use social media and dive into a bunch of that bullcrap.”
“They kept pushing me, and they’re like, ‘This is the date. We need you to do this right now.’ I told them I can’t do it. I have a family reunion that’s happening around that time, the first ever in my family. They said, ‘Are you in or you out?’ I said, ‘I’m out, then.’ If I’m going to get pushed to immediately answer five months out, I couldn’t give them an answer. I understand their side. They needed to know right away for promoting.”
