BUT i would definitely not complain over a fedor/brock match (or whoever is ufc heavyweight champ @ the time).

    after seeing kimbo's picture on ufc.com, im just hoping to log on and see fedor...
    it doesn't matter if fedor's known or not, he deserves an immediate shot at the title.

    Relax dude, it was a light hearted joke. He could shed a few pounds.

    That is a silly way of thinking.

    ^^ case in point, I'm still waiting for my mind to be blown by the MW he's allegedly signed but not revealed from months ago.


    ...although I'm also waiting for Lorenzo's increased role to have a discernable impact on the industry as well.

    To some degree, maybe you're right. Dana is obviously a business man and business deals are big to him.

    However, we are not business men. We are MMA fans, and when Dana uses FAN based means to say, "Something big is coming!"..... it is he who is the "yoohoo". Especially when he is always making "BIG announcements." He sets himself up for it.

    I understand your point, but it is extremely flawed. Fight fans aren't going to go gaga over a Chuck Liddell action figure.

    Don't say "I have a big announcement" on your fan blog and then make it a businesss announcement.

    Such deals like Bud Light are extremely important, and fans do care (when Bud Light signed with the UFC, it was a good day for MMA. It opened the door for many companies to get many sponsers). But that is not how most fans think. They think big announcement = something related to the fighters usually.

    Yes, as soon as I saw this thread I thought of that. He's suspended until 2010. The fights on the show are not sanctioned but the ones in the finale are and he could not compete in them.
