I would absolutly love to see this fight but I very much doubt it will happen. Too much corporate bullshit. It all money and has nothing to do with what the fans really want.
I agree with everyone that no one will know what actually happened.
But i think its bullshit how all the singnifcant members of the UFC are coming and saying all this shit. If I had to guess, it would be because of Dana White's financial demands on th fight. Dana White doesn't give a shit about the fans.
Think about the UFC fightcards. He's basically making us pay $30-40 for ONE fight. He holds UFC once a month with one main event and the rest of fightcards are filled with CRAP fights. Compare that to the Pride tournaments. Case closed!
This has to do with lack of quality fighters in the UFC i am sure, but that's due to the fact that they're paying so little to the fighters.
Would you train and fight for $5000?
