I'm really tired of the drama in zuffa. I think this is just as likely to be a work as anything else. I literally distrust every one of the principle players in the story. Every. Single. One.
I don't think wandi is afraid of fighting or losing. I do think he smokes weed, and that's as likely as not to get him fined and suspended.
I don't think sonnen deserves a title shot, even if he beats Vitor. Particularly if he beats Vitor, actually, as the TRT question is entirely unanswered...not to mention that he's got a losing record for the last 4 years. There are 9 guys in the UFC ahead of him at LHW, there are 20 ahead of him at MW.
But whatever, zuffa's going to do what they can to shift PPVs, and page after page of bullshit on the internet about a fight that doesn't matter equates to some fool reaching for the credit card, so yay! marketing!
But on that note, would you like to buy some farmland in Florida? It's waterfront!
