Oh yeah....there isn't one....this guy's a complete hypocrite but at least Marquez was competitive against Pacquiao and it could have been sold no one at all wants to watch Jones waste one his last fights at 205 against a guy coming off a loss to a Middleweight. Dana is basically a poor man's Bob Arum, without Brock this guy can't get a PPV to go over a million buys no matter what he does.
Other than saving TUF I'm not sure why he made the Jones/Sonnen fight. He could have fed an easy fight to Sonnen then gave him the shot. Not sure why Hendo just got lost in all of this. My guess is he wants TUF to do good numbers. He has probably wanted Chael on TUF for a while now.

Again, if people will watch he will put on those fights. Don't tune in. Make your voice heard. Thats how this whole thing works. If you thought a "sport" that gave you Toney/Couture would turn into this ranking system matchmaking, cater to the minority, totally fair organization then you have been fooled. And really need to step out of delusional land and into reality.

If GSP didn't ask for Diaz I would bet that he was planning on giving it to Hendricks. But if GSP is calling for a will sell more. If the champ wants to fight the guy he was scheduled o fight will sell even more.

If you aren't going to get a grip on how this works, I don't know what to tell you. I guess you can keep pouting over the fact the UFC isn't ran how you want it to be ran.
