Lindland not in the UFC because of lack of muscles?

Word of the Matt Lindland documentary Fighting Politics is making the rounds** There is no official release date for the piece which tries to bring to light why Lindland, who was a top five fighter in the UFC's middleweight division as recent as 2005, was dumped by the organization**

By the looks of the trailer, Loretta Hunt from Sherdog suggests that it was based primarily on Lindland not having the right look and wearing a Sportsbook**com t-shirt into the cage** Josh Gross from SI**com goes onto say that the UFC isn't legitimate because it doesn't have Lindland on its roster**

There are also multiple voices heard saying that Lindland is the No** 1 middleweight in the world** That's a quite a leap since most MMA media types have Anderson Silva, in the same weight class, as the No** 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world (Fedor Emelianenko is my No** 1)**


It looks like the piece includes some interesting bombs hurled toward the UFC president Dana White** Although the voices featured are Hunt and Gross, both are no longer credentialed to cover UFC events and a former UFC employee Keith Evans** Yahoo! Sports' Kevin Iole also appears in the piece** Here's hoping in future pieces like this that more MMA media voices are heard** I'm sure Dave Meltzer, Mike Chiappetta, Joe Ferraro, Neil Davidson and former Sherdog employee, Brad McCray are all very familiar with Lindland's story as well**

I wonder if Josh Barnett, another fighter who is essentially banned from UFC, is covered in the piece** Was he blocking a more glamourous heavyweight or is his body displeasing to look at? There's no doubt, Lindland and Barnett should both be in the UFC but there has to be a lot more to these stories than is being suggested in this trailer**

There is a video at the link if you want to see it**

For some reason I doubt it has to due with the way Lindland looks** If it had to with the way he looks then why is Chuck and his belly in the UFC?

Obviously its a bonus if the bodies look like your GSP/Alves/Huerta etc, but to say the UFC hires only the good looking bodies I find hard to believe**

another question would be why didn't Lindland pump iron and get muscles?

He could pump all the iron he wants, he'd still be ugly as shit**

Ugly, awkward, style that doesn't please many (I dig Lindland, but dude is not a "banger" nor is he flashy) and has a shot at beating Franklin (Though I think Franklin would eat his lunch)=Walking papers**

Lindland is an ugly mofo but no more than Wandy or Jardine both of whom are still with the UFC, personally after seeing Lindland at the last Affliction show I dont see why the UFC would want him, Lindland looked far from a top 10 MW in that last fight againt Fabio Negao, I mean seriously do you really think he is still a threat to Rich Franklin or even say Micheal Bisping (Who I dislike)?
