However, she is not the UFC champion yet. She still has to win this fight to get that belt. On the other hand, we have Hendo, who has also been the Strikeforce champion (never lost the belt), Pride champion in 2 different weight classes; he has been ranked #1 contender for the UFC 205 lbs, and #6 by many pound for pound best fighter. His resume is second to none, moreover, he is fighting a former champion, Lyoto Machida. Now why aren't they main event?
Where to start with this one...well, sorry to break it to you Gus Pugliese but Ronda IS the CHAMPION, and she does not have to win the belt to become champion, she was named champion to begin with...I guess he missed that presser the other day.
Now according to Gus we have Hendo, which by his words has never been able to cut it in the UFC...sorry he didn’t say that I did, he said Hendo has won the strikeforce title (which he later vacated) and 2 Pride belts, now what’s that old saying... "Not a real champion until you defend your belt." well guess what, every belt Hendo has had guess how many times he has defended them....ZERO times TOTAL (0-3 record in title defenses) Ronda on the other hand had at least successfully defended her title.
Finally he asks, "Why aren’t they the main event" and here is why, as it has been for X amount years if there is a champion on the card (not former, or self-proclaimed P4P this, or self-proclaimed that) they are the main event. I don’t understand why this easy concept is so hard for some people to understand.
