Can you say the same for Hendricks? No. All I'm saying is that the two scenarios are not exactly the same.
Again, I think this is marketing. I believe they know they're going to take a hit in the ratings without Georges. Write this one off as a loss and give a streaking Lawler a shot at a winnable fight...then when Condit faces the winner--and buyrates go up--then can market it as being on the rebound...and I'm certain Dana will talk about how Georges' return is "right around the corner."
