I have no problem with top heavy cards. I think MMA fans are spoiled by having a great card all around. I buy a PPV based on the Main Event and the other stuff i consider a "Bonus". And if a card gets cancelled due to an injury then that sucks but it happens. But if a card gets cancelled because the main attraction does not want to fight even though he has been training for 3 months??? Wow...
BUT like i said thats my personal opinion.
Dana White im sure was in panic mode and was calling up people he thinks could be worth watching. He did call up other fighters but they wernt up to the challenge of not being in a training camp and taking a fight. Chael Sonnen seems to be the only one that was willing to take a fight without being in fight shape. You cant blame Dana for not offering Vitor since that fight doesnt make any sense either and Vitor isnt exactly known for showing up to fights. So Vitor was probably the furthest thing from his mind. Chael Sonnen made sense since he was willing and the fight was still "Interesting".
BUT you have to realize that Jon Jones said he wouldnt have taken any fight. So who Dana offered him was not the problem.
So i dont see why there should be any outrage on Dana for offering the fight to Chael. TBH i thought it was a good save.
Dan Henderson did **** UP and he ****ED UP big. BUT fighters are going to try and fight injuries. Chael said that Dan wanted to take the fight on one leg but his doctor didnt allow him to take it. I personally cant be mad at Dan for attempting to fight through the injury. Its what fighters do . Though it was obviously a dumb decision on his part and i think EVERYONE would agree to that. But i dont think you can be mad at a guy for wanting to fight through the injury.
Jon Jones on the other hand... well im not going to bore you. You already know what he did and you already know what my opinion is. The outrage is pretty damn justified.
