Exactly. I think Chuck needs to be "back on the rise" before getting into such a highly anticipated bout. Also, Wanderlei will probably get a welcome to UFC fighter on a platter before facing off with Chuck. They need to build confidence in the fighters (namely Chuck), but also UFC/Zuffa wouldn't put these two in a position where they might lose 3 in a row, especially with Wandy's intro. Fans lose interest in fighters so fast it's not even funny. Chuck and Mirko were made out to be gods and now that they've lost (twice) all I hear is how they should retire, blah blah blah. The Chuck/Wandy fight would be bad for business at this point.
