Sure everybody wants to see the fight but the fact is the economics of it is not nearly what it once was. If you want to bring up losses since 2003 Wandy has lost to
Mark Hunt, Mirko, Ricardo Arona, Dan Henderson. Granted 2 of those guys are HWTs but really Wandy and 3 losses in his last 5 fights. He has to prove he is not damaged goods before the UFC bends over backwards get a fight with him.
And when has PRIDE ever sent guys over here to fight? I think that proves that the PRIDE people are ones that screwed that deal up.
