He's signed on to CAA now which is one of the big four agencies in Hollywood. Wouldn't that be something if Diaz was his retirement fight.
They didn't dub Schwarzenegger, did theyż I guess, if he went to the movies, St. Pierre would get a language coach first. After having seen his commercial, I can see him in action-comedies.

I wasn't aware of the scheduled Totonto card down the line.

I just looked through GSP's record and realized he never fought back to back in Montreal. And during one of the pressers last week someone asked him if they may do this fight in Toronto and Dana said "maybe". I figured they would try to do a fight like this in the Rogers Center.

I wanted to see this Diaz/GSP fight as I have been calling for it for a long time and hoping for it even when Diaz was in the middle of his SF run. I don't expect Diaz to win. But I want to see it and how he reacts and gameplans it.

I want to see this fight mainly to see Diaz get a beating. Theres a few things about this fight I don't like though. Is it not obvious that GSP will easily win this? ANOTHER fight for GSP in Canada? A Title fight for Diaz a year after his last fight in which lost?

Yes the UFC needs to make money like any other company. The issue I have is sometimes you need to look past the fact that you can make more money in one place as apposed to another. Yeah they want to make loadsa money to further and expand the UFC product but is it not damaging to the company to be giving title fights to people who have not earned them? Thus turning fans off, thus a decline in PPV purchses?

Question is?

Will the 100 or so posters who nag and whine about this daily not buy that PPV? UFC gives what most fans want to see. If there are really enough of you guys who don't buy the PPV then maybe Dana will do thing as you guys wish. It is pretty simple.

A good point. But theres nothing in this world that will stop me watching any UFC event. I just love MMA. That being said, we are the fans, we provide the UFC with money so I believe we are all entitled to an opinion. The things I mentioned that I don't like about this fight will never be enough to turn me off from watching the number 2 GOAT fight. MMA is what it is. Its not perfect. And I believe we the fans can talk all we want about the idiosyncrasies that surround the UFC and not feel like hypocrites when we decide to watch the PPVs.

No.

The reaction to Jones/Sonnen has been about 99 percent negative and literally the only person I've seen that is for this fight is CP, no one had a problem with him fighting Jones on eight days notice but putting Jones on the shelf until April to fight him has resulted in a ton of negativity and criticism and Dana's sticking with it.

I thought it was dumb too. But I will watch TUF probably more that season than I will have the last 3 combined. And people will watch the PPV.

What part of making money don't you understand? There is a difference between people having a "problem" with something...and the people actually tuning in to watch the event. But for some odd reason you can't seem to understand these very simply concepts.

Chael/Bones will save...or at least strengthen Dana's beloved reality show. It is that simple. Try to comprehend this as best as you can.

Please don't go into business in your life. You can't even grasp simple concepts like profit. So simple but so over your head because you are lost in a make believe ranking system fantasy land.

And right there with that statement is why Dana has you right where he wants you.

I'm aware of what making money is all about, that's the only reason the three title fights are happening.

But I'm not even sure what the level of interest is for Jones/Sonnen, I love Chael but I really don't know what the UFC can do to convince me and pretty much everyone else he can beat Jon. Everyone seems interested in Aldo/Edgar, there's people who wanna see GSP/Diaz, but I've not seen many say they wanna watch Jones/Sonnen, many believe it's a waste of Jon's time.

Chael will talk shit, but at the end of the day, talk is cheap if you can't back it up, he was able to do that at 185 but 205 is a whole different story and no one really knows how these Aldo/Edgar, Jones/Sonnen, and GSP/Diaz fights are gonna sell, what's gonna happen when the casual fan looks and says "This guy's coming off a loss? I'm not sure I wanna spend my money on this."

To me the real money fight is Jones/Gus, that would sell a lot more than Jones/Sonnen, some people believe Chael will get "hurt" and that could allow Gus to step in.
