You know, I'm not all that pissed off about it. Did Werdum deserve it more? Yes. But he'll have his chance.

If Herring had beaten Lesnar, he'd be no more than a fight away from a title bout himself. He was coming off a big win over Kongo, after all. So Brock's win over him was a big deal. So there's at least some rationale.

And at least this gives UFC a chance to clear up the title picture.

What does piss me off a bit is the fact Couture's getting away with ducking Noguiera.

I hope they stop with this , i find it to be really annoyoing.

I also thought Mir getting a title shot after a questionably lucky victory over Lesnar was crazy. I know a lot of ppl will say it wasnt lucky, but i honestly feel that if they were to fight again Lesnar would take it. Mir got embarssed by vera. I was supprized he remained in the ufc after that. I think he is an ok fighter, no where near champion level, not anymore.

I am alright with Randy and Lesnar banging it out while we wait for the "stars" to finish filming.
YOU'RE RIGHT BRO IT WAS A VERY LUCKY VICTORY EVER FOR A WORLD CLASS FIGHTER LIKE MIR, MIR WAS GETTING HIS ASS KICKED, SO IT WOULD BE KINDA UNFAIR TO GIVE MIR A TITLE SHOT... BUT YOU KNOW HOW IT IS A WIN IS A WIN...

Tim Sylvia isn't a bum and if you think he is then you know nothing about MMA.
Couture refused to fight Nog. He refused to defend his title. Therefore he isn't really the champion, I don't catre what the UFC site says.
Four man tournament? Sweet! Four man tournament with a 1-1 fighter fighting for the tile? Not so sweet. Werdum got screwed.
Nog never beat a champion for his "title" but you seem to give him more credit than Couture.

Nog did beat Tim Sylvia for the vacant belt and before that Herring, who has become the UFC's HW gatekeeper. Nog is definetly a real champ and so is Couture.

That is the fight that should be happening.

The WWE thing doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as the free title shot and the complete lack of class in the Octagon.
