You just have that perception because those are the only fights you can see.

In all seriousness, it probably depends on how much they like a fighter and what his demands are just like when the UFC signs a prospect. I doubt the UFC wanted Papy Abedi to debut against Thiago Alves, but that's what he requested, and he's a heck of a talent, so they accommodated him. Who knows how he'll bounce back from that beating he took. Similarly, I wouldn't want Houston starting out against someone with Falcao's experience level and ability. But if that's what he wanted I'd potentially bend to that demand so he signs w/ my organization.
