Frankie should just go back to 155 and get his belt back officially after Melendez eats Bendo alive.

This fight could be a co headline and have KZ fight Lamas

Or, and this is purely a suggestion, this fight can just not happen at this point. There is zero need for it, Cub has been on a tear lately and Frankie is on a three fight skid.

Frankie vs. Bendo did worse than Rampage vs. Hammill for crying out loud. And the UFC would probably never going forward put a BW title fight in a main event slot, or whatever the division Mighty Mouse is in. And Aldo's buyrates generally kind of suck too.

5-round wars can be exciting but they sometimes lack when nobody's in danger of being finished. Hendo vs. Shogun was a perfect 5-round war.
I don't think that is even close to being a correct statement. Jose Aldo is getting more and more popular all around the World. Casuals are really starting to notice Aldo and he is on the verge of reaching the class of GSP and Anderson. Not just that, then numbers were good for both Fox events featuring Nate Diaz who also has a pretty good following. I think you are more in the minority then you think. I think you would have a better argument if you adjusted your statement to include LW. I can see that more since many people still don't know more then 2 fighters below LW. But you have plenty of well known fighters at 155.

I think people are pretty tired of Frankie. I know I am. I can't stand his style of fighting. Drives me nuts. He seems like a great guy but I don't enjoy his fights.

I've got no problem with Frankie being a FX or FUEL main event.

So being a big name means you get the chance to bury guys just because you're used to headlining? Good to know.

Why? He lost 3 god damn fights in a row. He doesn't deserve to main event, especially against someone like Cub. He should get Poirier or Koch.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
