    Why should Hendo fight someone else when he was promised a title shot? Makes no sense. Of course he is now doing that. Yes, that is Zuffa's fault.

    BTW, I laughed my ass off at the "damaging to the company" line. Guess Dana will have to suck it up and only throw out $5,000 tips at the casino.
    I understand the timeline, your saying that Hendo had to wait a long time. I think the point your trying to make is so off the mark that I don't understand why you are trying to make it. Evans was the guy promised the title shot, not Hendo. Instead of taking another fight in the mean time, Hendo elects to sit on the side lines and hopes for the fight with Jones. He gets the fight, then backs out at the last second which causes the card to be cancelled. Trying to fault Zuffa for any of the above events doesn't make sense.

    And it's great you laugh your ass off at the company having to cancel a card and losing millions of dollars. But the losses are very real. Zuffa is not Dana White, it's a large international corporation. When they lose money, it hurts MMA.

    Yep...Dan offered fights with Shogun, Machida, and Lil Nog if I remember correctly as well.

    I never once heard Dana say Dan would get the shot before Evans... He shot it down... Had Rashad lost, it would have been a different story, as Dan was next in line... but he didnt....

    Pasha k we can go on with this for days, but I don't think we will come to a consensus anytime soon.

    Mike Tyson fought the best fighters that were available to him in his time.

    I think you clearly have huge issues with Dana White and that your hatred towards him can somewhat cloud your judgement in some of these discussions.

    You mean Peter "Hurricane" McNealy the last great American pugilist!? hahaha

    That was post jail Mike, but I cant think of any heavyweights that were legit contenders that pre-jail Mike didnt fight. Maybe there were, but I cant think of any.
