I'd like it to happen just to see Diaz beaten the hell up. Let it happen once and let him "retire" once again out of childish frustration.

Yep. The lighter weights aren't draws. Penn is pretty much the only fighter under WW to draw. As I already stated, Penn/Diaz did about the same numbers as Penn/Fitch.

10k less which pretty much the same shit.Diaz vs Penn had Kongo vs Mitrione as a co main event and also had Roy Nelson vs Cro Cop.Decent Card at best.

HWs draw interest.

Quote:
Shogun vs Henderson had Wanderlei Silva vs Cung Le

2 old guys way past their primes. Both guy have lost much of their appeal.

Quote:
and Urijah Faber vs Brian Bowles another decent to pretty good card.

The smaller weights don't draw. UFC 149 only did 235,000.

Quote:
Why would someone who didnt fight on the card have an effect on the card?400k people didnt buy Diaz vs Condit to watch GSP sit in the front row

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/mma/p...event/619176/1

Not totally because of GSP, but he had a part. Do you think Condit is a bigger draw than Penn or something? This would be the first time that Nick has shown drawing power.

erick silva vs jon fitch added to ufc 153:o
card is looking niiicceee..

i think if silva beats fitch, he's prly only one fight, two fights max away from a title shot.

i wonder if ufc would put silva vs macdonald, if both win their fights

So apparently the winner of Shogun-Vera gets the next title shot.

Although I'm a big Shogun fan, I don't really see why either would deserve it. Shogun was dominated by Jones not too long ago and is coming off a loss (although it should've been scored a draw, IMO). And it's friggin Brandon Vera. How much hype can you build up for the slaughter that would be Jones vs Vera? Maybe if Hendo pulls off a miracle upset. I'd love to see him and Shogun fight again. Still though, neither deserve it yet.

if vera wins at best he should have to fight someone like gustaffson

agreed with above. not sure why vera is being granted a ridiculous fast track to the title by dana and the ufc brass

i would rather see machida fight jones again. i know jones finished him convincingly but at least machida created some problems in the first round and some of the second round. i also think that cut really bothered machida. vera? meh

i'd definitely like to see the dragon get a rematch, assuming it's merited. machida has been the only man to take a round off of jones, since... since... when, exactly? has jones even lost one other round in his whole UFC run?

better yet, let's just cut to the chase. give jones a couple beatable HW opponents, let him get comfortable fighting there, give him time to bulk up, and then let's see how much noise he could make climbing the ladder. at this point there's virtually no point in him fighting at LHW, being as utterly dominant as he is...

That's a serious case of disrespect for Matt Hamill and his win over Jones!




Matt is disappointed in you.

its only if shogun wins in impresive fashion, otherwise it goes to the bader vs machida wimmer. Vera is not in the running, but weird indeed since jones just merked all 4 of them. I say just give it to Gus or maybe lil nog with one more win

Seems like they just stopped putting any effort into awarding title shots anymore... There will be some groans if it's Shogun, but there will be a lot of WTFs if it's Vera.
