You also had the Main event with Irvin in 08. The guy is in the main event of two UFC events at LHW one right after the champ lost his title and that isn't a run?

Yes, I suppose you can say that he was fighting the ex-champ and all... but I never saw that as a LHW campaign from Anderson. I saw as more as Anderson being bored and looking for some challenge.

just my opinion of course.
I don't think it was boredom I think it was a cash grab. I think it was his way of getting easy pay checks. He ran from Leites, and Maia and he cherry picked 205 ers that weren't going to bring him to the ground.
