Still, I have to say that I think Almeida is higher up the ladder than Leites, because I believe he's the better fighter, but I'm not sure how Dana and Joe feel about it, and it's their opinion that matters, not mine.
Almeida may be the better fighter but he has only fought once in 4 years, don't you think he needs a couple more fights to be considered in the picture?

tbh how fights affect each division in terms of contendership doesnt intrest me that much, half the time it doesnt matter either as a fight will be made upon whether it will sell of not cough forrest cough (good fight but i dont think he particularly deserved it)

i actauly think all the fights on this card are good quality fights with alot of potential and we really dont know whether any are gna be great fights for another 12 hours but i see a card that can produce alot of good fights

Sure, but I think that this win will jump him ahead of Leites, because it will be more impressive. His opponent is better, at least in my opinion.

Yeah, that's a problem, though.

I'm aware of how and why fights are selected, and I'm even more aware that they are not selected based on the criteria of what will be a great fight.

Unfortunately, many of these cards lack interesting matchups and matchups that matter. So why am I supposed to care?

I'll admit Leites does have a good chance of losing today(even though I am picking him to win) but how is Patrick Cote better then Nate Marquardt? I think you are just trying to play games with me now, the only thing Cote has over Marquardt is striking and that is about it.
