She's the champion of a division (well it's not really a division, you need more than one average-at-best fighter for it to be a division), and that's the way it works, champions get main event status.

I am sure this division *cough, ahem, cough* won't be around this time next year or the year after, but for now it is what it is, champions main event, that's how it rolls and that's how it should be. Honestly, this whole thing is a waste of money until they get more fighters that have names, I literally know 1 person in her whole "division", and that's her, and I'm a huge MMA fan. The mass majority don't even know who she is I'm sure, much less whoever they find to fight her.

Anyways, at the end of the day and the bottom line she's the current champion of that "division", thus she main events, that's how it goes people.

So while I understand them bitching about not getting the headline with their name in the title, it's still a blessing in disguise IMO for Hendo.

very good point

i have no problem with ronda main event. imo it makes sense purely because its the first ever female fight, let alone a title fight

but i wouldve liked a 5 rounder in case its 3 rounds of cat and mouse to a decision e.g. lyoto v rampage

I would love Machida-Henderson to be 5 rounds, I wish they could just make co-main events 5 rounds on occasion....thats my only problem with this.

I agree with them but at the end of the day it doesn't really change anything. Ronda is a big attraction, in a few ways, but everyones expected a quick armbar while no one knows what will happen with the epic clash between Lyoto and Hendo. Can't wait for the fight.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

I used to bemoan those who compared the UFC to the WWE....
Machida a legend? Come on that's throwing the term around oddly loosely.

Well, personally I don't think he is a legend at this point, but the subject is sure debatable as we had a dedicated thread for it:

He's a legend to me goddammit.

Seriously though, Machida maybe doesn't have the history of other 'legendary' fighters but I'm confident he'll go down as one when or before his career his over. He is already greatly respected as a mixed martial artist and probably the number 2 in 2 divisions. Simply think about his ability put beside other established legends and tell me how he stacks up.

It'll all be worth it when Carmouche lands the H Bomb on Rousey's chin.

It would be perfect... if only her chin looked like a pair of buttocks.
