On a scale of one to ten: How pissed off are you...

that Dana made Lesnar vs. Couture? I'm sorry I'm still venting my anger here and I figured this might help a little bit. Maybe it will help you to!

On a scale to 1-10 I would rate my anger at 35!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

not pissed off at all, seeing as how Lesnar will give couture the beating of his life and will get even more recognition(unlikely, seeing as how the lesnar haters refuse to acknowledge him even after the herring fight).Now, if you are a couture fan I can see how you'd be angry....

I was a Couture fan until he decided to quit the UFC and refuse to fight Big Nog. I'm just pissed that guys like Big Nog and Werdum got passed up for a guy with a 2-1 record. Hows that fair?

I'm not THAT upset about it. Sure there are other higher priority fights that I'd rather see, but its still a fight I'm interested in watching (are you honestly not going to watch?).

Yeah I'd rather see Nogueira vs Couture, Couture vs Fedor, etc etc, but its still exciting enough to watch.

Considering there is little I can do to change the situation anyway, I figure why be pissed about it? Just enjoy what you can about it, which is finally seeing Randy back in action, and getting to see Brock against one of the best fighters (to see just how good he really is).

The world isnt perfect, and unfortunately its something we've all got to accept sooner or later.

I'm at about...3 or 4.

Not really that concerned, I'm not really a fan of Werdum although I do think he is the #1 contender. It isn't that fair, but oh well. We get to see some pretty interesting matchups.

I am not mad at all i feel bad for Nog but if he gets past Mir he can fight the winner of Randy and Lesner and see who the rightful champion is.

How can you be mad when Randy comes back it brings more legitimacy to th HW division that was lacking now with randy back and Lesner making a name for him self and a possibility of Fedor on the horizon things are looking up !!

Chances make Champion's....Champion's take chances

If on a scale from 1 to 10 you are 35, I would have to rate myself as Zero. I'm actually looking forward to it. Besides, it sure beats having to wait through a Bispen/Leben or a Silva/Cote headliner.

Apparently I'm the only other guy who's pissed about this.

I'd rate myself at a 9, leaving the 10 for the day Dana strips Nog of the title he's going to have after this little tournament and has Brock vs Kimbo for the vacant title. With the way things are going, I can honestly see that happening within the next year at this rate.

Edit: Also, to everyone saying "You know you're gonna watch!" I actually don't think I will. Not that it'll matter, because it's going to be one of the largest grossing PPVs in the history of sports, but I won't lend my support to it. I'd rather watch Bisping/Leben or Silva/Cote.

2 or 3.

Im pissed off because they should've aknowledge Nogeira as the real champ and bypassing that because of the money, but well money is money and it's probably a good thing for the UFC.

I would have stripped Couture off the title (making Nog the champ) a couple of weeks before annoucing this fight, then announced the fight as a N+1 Contender fight.

Now that doesn't make much economical sense, but would have been the right thing to do because.

1) Brock doesn't deserve the title shot.


2) Couture refused to fight Nogeira.
