Can Jay Hieron get any love?

You’ve all heard the story of how Jay Hieron said ‘He has a lot of bills to pay and no paycheck‘ after the Affliction aftermath. Then you all know how he was signed to fight Nick Diaz on the Strikeforce card then Diaz had to drop out so the bout was in limbo. Jesse Taylor was found as a replacement and now what was promised to be a welterweight title fight for Hieron was relgated to just a normal fight. During the weigh-ins, Jesse Taylor came overweight so the fight was thrown into that ‘limbo’ category again. Dude finally made weight later that day but Hieron discovered that his match was demoted to an undercard bout. Hieron wasn’t even going to be on the Showtime broadcast and all of his sponsorship money for being was now being stripped away. Hieron has the worst luck in the galaxy. Check out this post-fight interview by Ariel Helwani to see what’s going through Hieron’s head after the debacle:
