The integrity of the UFC is slipping with this kind of shit.
I think it simply comes down to the fact that this fight was already set up. We, the fans, already were sold on it. A lot of people, correctly or incorrectly, also thought Diaz won the fight against Condit.
I think its an easy sell and really not a far fetched fight. It certainly isn't as bad a Jones vs. Sonnen, which is happening because a magic unicorn said so.
