Brown, Lawler, Johnson, Lil Nog, Thompson, Bermudez, Cruckshank all on the same card you say?
For free you say?
Me likee. I would pay for this card without hesitation.
Your point actually is what blows my mind about a guy like Diaz. He stays in good shape all year, and bitches about money. Why not take good match ups, every freaking chance you get? If I was only interested in money, I would take every fight that I thought I could get through without taking a ton of damage. Wash, rinse, repeat every 3-4 months.
USA! USA! USA!
My best guess is that the Dana's throwing Lawler a bone here. An easy payday and an opportunity to get a highlight reel KO against a massively overmatched opponent and secure another title fight. Props to the Dana for taking care of Lawler and quelling the ridiculous notion of Brown being a contender in one fell swoop.
Wanna compare it to boxing, and their rankings system? How's that working out for the popularity of the sport?
Wanna compare Matt Brown to a NCAA team with a cake schedule? College football fans go on this exact same rank, all the time.
The problem is that the UFC keeps trying to push their money makers without doing enough to credit their up and comers. I mean they do credit some up and comers, but they have to crown you as the future beforehand, or you will never get the recognition you deserve. They can't adapt to guys "coming out of nowhere". That's all just my opinion, but I feel strongly about it, because I love MMA, and this is a dangerous path. What do you do when the term "super fight" doesn't mean shit, because everybody is sick of hearing it, and they think all of your super fighters have retired?
USA! USA! USA!
i would argue a bad sequence of events is why he hasnt had a top 10 guy, not the UFCs fault. They had him lined up against Hardy, Alvez and Condit at different times during his win streak and the fighters were scrapped due to injury one way or the other.
I would also still argue he would need a top 10 win inside the WW division with the murders row of killers that division has all of a sudden.
