"MFC: Were nobody's farm team". "For a while (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva would call me and say he we want Ryan Ford to fight tomorrow," said Pavelich, who helped put middleweight Jason MacDonald in the UFC. "Joe Silva says that to me now, I say no way. I'm nobody's farm team. I'll never be that. It's not in my DNA. I don't have that mentality. I couldn't even understand it. I was letting myself do that all these years."
