This is a stupid matchup. Seems to me like the UFC wants build Maynard into a star and giving him a chance to avenge his only (exhibition, admittedly) loss is the way to do that, just like they did with liddell against Horn and Couture.
If Nate wins he beat the same guy twice which is not as great as if he beat someone ELSE with a similar record, if he loses he gains nothing and Maynard avenges his only loss. If I were Nate I wouldn't have taken this fight- but I think nate just has that much budo.
Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
