    My thoughts exactly.
    The UFC is known for some fairly stupid matchups lately...
    But this just makes NO sense.

    I've heard people say that they don't want Faber ruining anyone's title run...
    But that doesn't make any sense either...
    Since if you CAN'T beat Faber... you don't deserve the title.

    What a laugh riot.

    Caceres better eat his wheaties. He's doomed.

    Matt Mitrione vs. Stefan Struve

    ...that is a pretty good freakin card.
    Honestly, I'm not very excited about it. Weidman/Machida is a super interesting fight. But after that, it's kinda crazy how few of the fights have impact on their divisions.

    It feels like this card is pretty hollow: A good amount of star power without divisional implications. (Though, granted, I'm also not including the Rousey fight because I think it's going to be comically one sided and haven't been impressed with Davis' run.)

    Dude has won 5 in a row, the division is shallow as hell on title contenders. Might as well give the kid a shot at the big time

    It's possible that the UFC really wanted Faber on this card and nobody higher ranked than Alex was willing to fight him

    Edit:

    On less than 2 months notice. Fighters probably want a longer time to prepare for the perennial #2 guy.

    You know, that is the BEST explanation I've heard yet for what is obviously a strange match up.
    Hadn't thought of that before.
