I know Dana offers cash bonuses etc. to entice the guys to go out and try to finnish fights but it seems to me good match making would help keep things exciting. ( I also think ground wars are awesome the dildos that boo at events are dildos, enough said) That being said Thiago Alves would have been a much better choice for Swick. Everyone wants to see Diaz vs Sanchez or Griffin vs Guida stuff. Fights like last night main events suck and you would think Joe Silva would be a little more consistent, there is more talent in the UFC than ever before . What is the problem ?
Are you fucking serious?
They have 20 events per year. They have a roster of 300 fighters. Not every fight is going to be spectacular. On paper Burkman vs. Swick was a very good fight. But, according to you, Joe Silva should have known that Burkman wasn't going to be able to take Swick down and that Swick was going to dance on the outside with feeble strikes. I am sure that your crystal ball is working, but the one at Zuffa HQ was being repaired.
This thread is retarded.
