In pro wrestling they build stars the same way but they get guarantee the guy they are building wins in MMA shit happens and sometimes your horse doesn't win the race.
I agree but the problem is that they are picking the wrong guys. Mo and Rogers just aren't that good. They should be looking to build their company around guys like Melendez and diaz. Obviously anyone can get Matt Sera'd. But honestly I didn't think Mo was going to beat Feijao. Also they now that Werdum is out, they need to make Overeem vs Werdum, so their HW title actually has some credibility.
