Lot of people pissed off at the UFC.
People are mad that the UFC has 3 up an coming championship fights that include fighters that are coming off of loses. Not really shocking as this has been brought up, but sounds like more and more people are starting to hate White.
Then people were mad that one of those guys not only is coming off a loss, but coming off a drug suspension. Questions were asked as to why the UFC would want to promote something like that. Again I agree.
And finally someone made a good point and asked why does GSP have so much power?
Not only is he fighting in MTL every fight
, but he is picking who he gets to fight. One guy questioned whether it's even fair to question Diaz when he doesn't show up for the media scrums.
On the bright side and I really had no idea that this happened, but people were tipping their hat at Dana for not putting all that many fighters from TUF on the finale. Apparently fighters were warned during the show that they need to start showing that they deserved to make it. Also didn't know Mike Ricci went into MMA, have to think that nose of his is going to hurt his career
There's a quote out there stating GSP didn't specifically ask for Montreal, that he'd fight Diaz anywhere.
There's little doubt that a lot of people want to watch GSP vs Diaz. I'm a huge Hendricks fan and I think it's smart for him to be on the undercard. I mean honestly, what's the chance this fight even happens? Diaz is 50-50 to make any of the press conferences, 80-20 to fail another drug test and GSP could always end up hurt again.
GSP will have no problem beating Diaz, none. Hendricks just needs to be patient, his chance will come.
