That is my basic understanding of it, if i'm wrong someone please correct me.

Ah I see. From what I've seen so far, UFC don't even need the guy now, more than plenty of good fighters to fill arenas. Would have been great to see him though of course, but it's not a 'must have' deal for UFC now, if it ever was.

fedor is not exactly washed up, and the UFC could absolutely use him right now with their #1 draw freshly retired (brock lesnar) and long injuries to their #2 and #3 draws (anderson silva and GSP).

problem is, dana white hates the dude for his mgmt team's silly tactics over the years. because with white, everything is personal, and he'd rather lose money than give up a grudge.

during his 3-loss losing streak fedor was outclassed by one fighter, bigfoot silva. that's it. there's no reason to think he couldn't put up very competitive fights with most of the UFC's top ten even now, but it looks like he's just not going to get that chance...

as of 7:52 this past night, the soap opera has swung back the other way:
http://espn.go.com/mma/story/_/id/75...-carlos-condit

i didn't understand what condit's motivation was for a rematch, anyway. he already earned the win in everyones eyes who mattered, had little to gain, and much to lose (his guaranteed shot at GSP).

these guys only fight a couple times a year anyway, so it makes more sense in the scheme of things to do the GSP-condit fight followed by GSP - diaz regardless of the winner of the title fight. then, nothing preventing condit from fighting diaz later on when they've both improved / evolved. they're both young enough, so i don't see the problem.

of course TBH, another way of saying all that is that i don't give a crap about the fans who think diaz won...

Aight just to get some more discussion going in here besides random news updates, I got a question/prediction contest. Me and my boy were arguing about it last night at the bar. Which current champ loses their belt first? Who holds it the longest?

Bantamweight - Domonick Cruz (Next opponent: Urijah Faber)
Featherweight - Jose Aldo (Next opponent: TBD)
Lightweight - Frankie Edgar (Next opponent: Ben Henderson)
Welterweight - Georges St-Pierre (Next opponent: Carlos Condit Interim)
Middleweight - Anderson Silva (Next opponent: Chael Sonnen)
Light Heavyweight - Jon Jones (Next opponent: Rashad Evans)
Heavyweight - Junior Dos Santos (Next opponent: Alistair Overeem)

I could see Rashad beating Jon Jones and Overeem beating Dos Santos. I think the other champs are safe for some time.

Think JDS and Silva have the best chance of losing to his next opponent. Think Jones and Aldo will have their belts for a while.
