It's not very often that you see a fight announced on UFC.com, only for the bout to be called off because one of the fighters didn't actually sign with the biggest MMA organization in the world. But that's exactly what happened with Bibiano Fernandes and his aborted bout with Roland Delorme at UFC 149. Fernandes then chose to sign with Asian organization One FC instead. In an interview with Tatame, Fernandes explained why he did what he did:
"Apart from family, it'd be a great opportunity for me, but when you put the family in the picture, it's not worth it. I don't fight for me. I have people who rely on me. I've built what I had to build in MMA. It can be many people's dream to fight in the UFC, but it ain't mine. It's all business to me. I've dreamed about being a champion. I earned three belts: one in Canada and two in Japan. If you have a dream, keep dreaming. If you want to fight, keep on trying. But this I'll tell you: worship yourself, otherwise nobody else will. And it's not only on the fighting business, but in everything in life. People use you, use you, use you and them through you away like garbage."
