And the UFC will now feature championship fights in three....THREE.... weight classes, where the challenger lost his last fight.

Simply nothing to say except LOL and put another card on the list of not to buy. Also if Dana thinks this is a winning strategy, better look at the numbers. 2011 PPV revenue was way down for the UFC from 2010, and 2012 will be way down from 2011, so, thats it Dana, keep up this strategy that is running the UFC into the ground.

There were no undeserved title shots in 2011-2012, to bring up the numbers Sonnen and Diaz....two big money makers are being gifted the title shots, its not exactly a new thing for the UFC...but they haven't been doing it lately.

Wonder if Diaz will quit MMA again after he gets beat.

lame move from the UFC, Diaz beat a fading Penn then got outstruck by Condit, tests positive for a banned substance, then gets a title shot?

GSP please send this crybaby packing for good!

The only reason the numbers are down is because Brock has gone. If you want the numbers to keep falling then Hendricks vs Gsp will do that, Gsp vs Diaz will be around 800,000 if not more.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Agreed. It's fairly ridiculous to think that Hendricks vs. St. Pierre would do better numbers than Diaz vs. St. Pierre. Besides, if numbers have dropped for any reason, it's escalating PPV prices coupled with people generally having less money to spend. But I get that people need a scapegoat, so Dana may as well be it.

Probably because Dana's the one who confirmed it?

My point is that people blame Dana for everything. Chael vs. Jones. Declining numbers. The works. I never hear a word against the Fertitas. Or Joe Silva. Are people honestly so blind that they believe Dana runs the entire operation himself? There are a myriad of people involved. If the Fertitas or Joe Silva (and others) hated this fight, I doubt it would be happening.

People complain when there aren't enough 'big' main events or name brand fighters on a card. And so the UFC goes out of its way to give the fans just that, and all of a sudden Dana is driving the company into the ground. It's nonsense.

if you want a promotion that puts "deserved" fights together, Bellator is what you're after. UFC is all about the show.

I'd pay for Diaz vs GSP 10 times before I'd pay for Diaz Vs Hendricks.

Agreed, Hendricks wins in spectacular fashion, however, who really saw what else he has than his 1 punch KO power? I'm sure he has plenty, but we have yet to see him tested (especially lately). I like Hendricks vs Shields, why not. Or maybe Hendricks vs Penn/McDonald winner

The last two times we saw Hendricks tested against actual wrestlers, he won an uninspired split decision in one fight and lost the other. He should thank Nick Diaz. This is going to make Hendricks as popular as he's ever been amongst the 'purist' internet fanboys and keep alive his ridiculous notion that he can actually hang with GSP.
