How was Penn vs. Pulver a bad match up, the fight was gonna happen no matter what since teh first one was an upset

I haven't decided yet if the Randy vs. Lesnar fight is unrealistic. Sure, Brock will bring people in to watch the fight but, how could someone that has a total of one win in the UFC and a total of 3 fights get a shot at the belt.

Elvis Sinosic versus Michael Bisping and you could argue ES vs. Forrest Griffin because he was 1-3 in the UFC at the time but had lost to 3 good fighters- Ortiz, Tanner and Sobral. But going into the Bisping fight dude was 1-5 in the UFC- I mean I know they want to build the TUF champs up by c'mon.

Whoever the hell they put against Kongo on the last card.

Houston Alexander- Keith Jardine- yeah Keith got whupped but he was coming off a KO win over Forrest and instead matching him up with another good fighter they give him an unknown first timer. Had he won he would have just treaded water in the LHW division instead he got KTFO.

Santos versus Fabricio Werdum.

I don't agree with whoever said Vera-Werdum that was not that great of a mismatch though Werdum was favored.

Chuck versus Jardine- oh wait...crap.

Chuck versus Rashad- oh wait...

You never know what is gonna be one sided and what isnt. I thought Marquedt/Kampman would be FOTN instead it was a one sided beat down of epic proportions, I though Lidell would have Rashad seeing stars instead Chuck ended up counting the lights.
