I don’t think he believes in himself as much as he used to. Because there was a time when he would take on the best guys and he wouldn’t care.
But now he’s picking and choosing; he’s taking his time, he’s playing games in the media.
Now, Gordon Ryan has decided to fire back at Spriggs, saying that he was offered a match against him and that he declined it:
Funny story here – the only reason I’m facing Pedro [Marinho] in July is because Tim Spriggs declined a match with me.
He was offered as always more money than ever. And was even offered any date he wanted. He simply said “no” as they all do. I feel like I’m living in a clown world here.
He also added a comment that Sprigg’s earlier statement about him “weighing” the matches doesn’t make sense:
In addition to this coward running his mouth and then flat out declining a match, this statement doesn’t even make sense. I’m competing against Pedro, Pena (who I’m giving 10-1 odds on a bet)… Competing in my division at ADCC, then facing Andre in the super fight.
