Why Not Lindland INSTEAD of Silva VS Franklin

Why Not Lindland INSTEAD of Silva VS Franklin...Lindland VS Franklin would be an awesome fight...
I know Lindland is under contract with WFA for atleast 2 more fights, but does that mean he's through with the UFC?
Lindland lost to Rampage after goin up to LHW, but I was there and I thought Lindland one...
Just please give me your thoughts on why Lindland left the UFC if he really did? And why didn't he get a title shot against Ace?
Thanks for any help.

Dana didnt want him as champion, Lindland has always been said to be a boring fighter. He could have a really good chance in beating Ace becuase of clinch and ground work, but Dana didnt want to see that so he made up a bullshit reason to fire Lindland from the ufc. He said that Lindland was not allowed to wear a shirt at the weighin with sportfight.com on it, Lindland had it on anyway and now hes with WFA

OH Really!? Geeze, stupid Dana, interesting though, not in the know of sportfight.com and how it made a problem...Lindland is a cool dude though, suprisingly all the fighters I saw after King Of The Streets were, got pics and autographs...well anyway Dana should have fired other people who've done worse before...thanks for the info though...

Dana sucks! I like to see good fights were it is evenly matched and wants silva to fight rich because he is a good striker!!

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

Very simple answer is Dana does not think a gorgeous man like Linland is marketable or exciting .....Dana gets another huge

what do you mean what am i talking about? i've heard/read lots of people saying how they think this fight is going to be a cake-walk for Franklin. lots of people seem to be writing silva off for some reason.

i'm pretty sure (as sure as one can ever be) that silva is going to KO franklin after a spectacular showing, maybe even run a clinic on franklin and expose him for the protected champ he is.

I don't think the fight wil; be a cake walk for either guy. I just think Rich is going to go for a striking comb like he usually does (ala Tanner/Crow) but he's not used to the long reach of Anderson.....he gunna think he's out of danger and BAMMM!!!!!

Winner and NEW MW champion Anderrrson the Spider Sillllllvaaaa!!!!

Book it I said book it!

BTW don't worry about the gnubs on here who know nothing past TUF, experience is the greatest teacher....
