    No. They stack cards based on what country they are in.

    Why are more English fighters on cards in England?

    Why were there more Swedes than usual on the Swedish card?

    They plan fights based on their demographics and sometimes even pull local fighters up to the big leagues.

    Much like the whole Jardine thing when Rashaad was champ.
    Irrelevant to a ranking system.

    Rory will be wrestling a lot more in this fight. Hope Condit can land something big.

    I doubt he would decline... he knows at some point he will be fighting 5 rounders and he wants the rematch so much he'd do it anyways.

    I don't think Condit should have to give Diaz a rematch at this point besides given the choice I'd much rather see Nick have to get by a wrestler first before he gets a title shot.

    It's more to do with just using Canadian born fighter and in this case a locally trained fighter to sell cards and ensure the arena fills up. The health care thing is a plus of course for some injuries. Any high level athlete will not will not wait in the line up for any specialized treatments though as they'd be waiting a long time to get in.

    I think if the 2 fought it would be like watching a chest match. Neither would commit to anything.
    Lucky i'm not going to ask you!

    I've actually never thought about it. That is a really good point though. The Canadian fighters would be treated for free for sure. Not sure, but the American fighters might be treated for free too while they're in Canada.

    Pretty sure Rory doesn't care how many rounds it is. He asked for this fight and and is very motivated. Funny how when Rory was launching Nate with suplexes in the third round, nobody was questioning his endurance. Rory's cardio is no less suspect than Condit's takedown defense.

    I like both guys and am looking forward to this one.

    The UFC can use guys like Shogun and Machida for Fox cards and come back the following month and use guys like Anderson and Big Nog to sell to the Brazilian fans.
    The UFC doesn't need a Canadian fighter to draw in Canada, MMA is huge here in Canada.

    Just look at UFC 140, UFC 131, UFC 115, UFC 113 and UFC 97....all in Canada, all without Canadian main event draws.

    WoW Hendricks must be really pissed now cause now he is really going to be screwed. Rory vs Condit. Diaz vs GSP and Fitch vs Mia. Who does that leave Hendricks to fight? He already beat Kos and Kampman and all the other conteders are booked.
