I think Franklin would beat him and Bisping could beat him but I would probably take Matt**

Lindland would still give most MW's problems** He still has a shot at beating Rich, because he can get Franklin down, and do so multiple times** Lindland's top position is solid, and he has a good sub ******

I think it has something to do with it** You can't compare Lindland to Liddell, Lidell may have a gut but he's also built and a good-looking guy with an exciting fighting style** Lindland is homely, looks like his parents are probably related, is really hairy but not in a hot way like Arlovski, never has big muscles or even any definition to speak of, is pretty much bald, doesn't have particularly inspiring speaking abilities, and has a reputation for smelling really bad**

Back at the time Lindland was first released from the UFC, it was pretty much common knowledge that although he was technically released for wearing a shirt with an unapproved sponsor on it (lol), Dana really wanted him gone because he was a talented but terribly unmarketable and somewhat boring ground fighter who had a good chance to win the title when they really wanted their up and coming, highly marketable, good looking, ripped, muay thai-skilled boy Rich Franklin to take it**


Please note, I'm just explaining what I believe to be Dana's point of view, I personally think the best fighter should be holding the title, not the most marketable one**

I can't wait to see this film, if nothing else it should have some good behind the scenes conversations with fighters**

I must have missed the memo that said all periods were being changed to double asterisks, odd(period)

This movie is going to be full of crap** But I'm sure some of the stuff will be true**

Dana has seemed to blackball fighters from the UFC whether it's Frank or Barnett and I think Lindland is on that list as well since he is boring and I'm sure the fact he looks like a product of inbreeding doesn't help his career with the UFC but I think Dana just doesn't like Fighters who are strong personalities**

Plus, that 24 second ktfo loss to a young punk like Dave Terrell could not have helped things either** I bet dana was like, let's finish this guys contract up and he's out******

I dunno, he had a 9-3 UFC record (with one of those losses avenged brutally) and was on a four win streak, the most recent two UFC, when his contract was cancelled** I'm not sure Dana would have wanted the guy around even if he had a 12-0 record**
