PostSubject: Dana White puts the kabash on Mark Hunt's title shot   Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:32 am

Quote :
“They can keep rallying. It ain’t going to happen… I have apologized and praised Mark Hunt for what he’s accomplished in the situation he was in. And I think this fight with Struve is a good fight for him. If he beats Struve, he’ll break in and start fighting some of the top five heavyweights in the world. Anything can happen in a fight, but in all reality, it’s not fair to Mark Hunt either, to throw the guy right in there with Junior Dos Santos for a title shot. The guy worked his way up, he beats Struve, he fights somebody in the top five. I guarantee you this, he beats Struve, his next fight will be someone in the top five that can get him closer to that title shot.”

Yeah... because Cain totally worked his way back up there.... what a bunch of fuckin BS. Dana is just gonna put him against as many people as possible, before he gets a title fight,in hopes that Mark loses and he won't have to give him that shot.
There is no one more suited to step up, aside from Mur.

I think the UFC would have a hard time selling Hunt vs JDS right now. The underground and sherdog nerds are not the ones that go to the fights.

But I hear ya, I would love to see the fight.

I agree, it would be a tough one to sell. But damn it, that would be one hell of a stand up war!

So many different fights so many different fighters ... match making can be a pain in the buttt, I do believe the bottom line is always which fight is gonna make the money?
