- The Heavyweight title is being contested, the action is moving rather well, but we get a 1/4 screen advertisment for the next two PPVs and a UFN during the fight. That is laughable.
So now what? Does Frank Mir get the title shot that Lesnar was likely to get had he won? Do they throw Almeida into title contention after dispatching a TUF reject? Will Lesnar and Sylvia ever be pitted against real grapplers again? With the UFC running things, there is no telling.
With the punch to the head, I agree.. I was just like.. WHAT THE HELL? (Even though I wanted Mir to win.. a point deduction with stupid)
1/4 screen advertisements? Maybe you need to adjust your screen dude.. because the only on screen advertisements I saw (and I don't think I noticed ANY during the main event) were in the corner of the screen and were as big as the usually were (1/16 of the screen).
Lesnar would not have gotten a title shot for beating Mir. Mir has looked really good since he came back and he is one fight from a title shot (against a good opponent of course).
Who said anything about Almeida getting a title shot?
Why would Sylvia (who Dana has no use for) be protected from grapplers?
Why wouldn't Lesnar fight another grappler?
What I really want to know is.. why all the speculation?
