I don't have a problem with Dana giving him a shit fight, as long as he gets a real one after that. I think it is a good move by Dana. You don't want to bring him in and have him lose, all the guys who really don't know anything about MMA need to see this guy destroy someone, then after that Rampage will be there man and they will want to see more of him. Then they can give him Babalu, if he wins, he gets the title shot.
Now if they were just to give him this fight, that that would be BS. But I think for a guy like Rampage and the very new MMA fans of the UFC, they need to see what this guy is all about. Hell most of the people don't know what Pride is, let alone guys who fight in Pride.
