This sums up my thoughts.
He sounds familiar.
UFC needs to build and hype the smaller guys better for situations just like this.
The thing is the small guys will never be as popular as the bigger guys no matter how much the UFC promotes them, even if the do, on average, put on more exciting fights.
Like Dana said "the bigger guys always get top billing", which has everything to do with what the fans want.
