Yes,i believe for them was just build up material for Ubereem
The cheating exposed and the BF upset was probably just outside theyr plans

Well, the winner of Struve-Hunt is a realistic possibility
I have no idea how theyr fight will go, Hunt have a tradition of get subbed but also Struve is'nt new to L by dear old punch to teh face

If BF get Struve i agree, strange interessing fight.
But also an hypothetic Hunt fight imho will be interessing... if in shape Hunt can send BF head to the audience (killing 2 or 3 peoples probably), but being so clear i doubt BF gameplan will be stand and bang.
If he can bring it to the ground his 3 tons weight can help keep things there.
Problem is he don't have mad sub skill and honestly i think his punching power is not incredible... and Hunt got stopped by strikes only once in a very perfect chin button situation
Basically risk just to not be able to finish Hunt and get decapitated next round

But who know,at the end i yet lost my Vcash with BF betting on Softereem

I'm a fan of Bigfoot, and I'm not disappointed. Let him do what he wants with his career, get some more fans, build a nice streak, without the "do or die" pressure of a title shot.

Only a few people in this thread claimed to be fans of Bigfoot and none of them seem to be disappointed that he is not really asking for a title match.

Since most of the top contenders have fight scheduled and since Dana said he would be fine with a rematch with Velasquez, Bigfoot doesn't have to make much noise to get the fight, but as I said before he is being timid about it.

He deserves it, but I'm not sure it's what's best for him. He seems to be getting better, but I'm not sure he's ready for Cain just yet.

Risky, I know, but it might be a good idea for him to take on another contender first.

Your seal of approval is all that matters.

I think its to early form him but who else does the UFC have to face Cain next? JDS rubber match?

I would like to see a rematch, but you have to be kidding if you think Silva deserves a title shot after 1) being dominated by Cain 2) on a two fight win streak in which one of the wins was against a prospect.

1 more quality win and Silva is in line for a title shot unless there's someone else more deserving (though most HWs right now don't have enough wins to be considered contenders).
