He gets the fight, then backs out at the last second which causes the card to be cancelled. Trying to fault Zuffa for any of the above events doesn't make sense.
And it's great you laugh your ass off at the company having to cancel a card and losing millions of dollars. But the losses are very real. Zuffa is not Dana White, it's a large international corporation. When they lose money, it hurts MMA.
Yep...Dan offered fights with Shogun, Machida, and Lil Nog if I remember correctly as well.
I never once heard Dana say Dan would get the shot before Evans... He shot it down... Had Rashad lost, it would have been a different story, as Dan was next in line... but he didnt....
