Dana white needs to bring back ppl like Paul Buentello who have showed they can stand and strike with the best of them rather then wasting his time on boring HW's who are slow on action
I think they let beuntello go because of the way he looked, kind of flabby and out of shape (like another certain heavyweight fighter with who likes pantpooping). Plus, that fight that he did lose, he lost it pretty badly in like 16 seconds.
I don't know if beuntello doesn't train hard, or if he is just the type of guy who just looks out of shape no matter how much he trains, but if you look at the rest of the UFC besides Sylvia they all look like they train very hard.
I think that the matchmakers like guys that are ripped because it makes the sport look like it is fought by atheletes and not couch potatoes, and they are trying to get mainstream acceptance from the public and politicians.
