It didn't out sell Jones vs. Gus because of Hendo and Machida....hardcores were all over that fight but nobody else gave a shit.

UFC 100: Brock vs Mir should've main evented over GSP vs Alves or Fitch vs Thiago.

I'd say UFC 100

GSP vs Alves was more deserving of the main event but it wasn't the big draw so no way it would've happened

Lyoto vs Hendo (Not in hindsight) was a bigger fight for MMA fans than Ronda imo

Want to know something funny? Everyone was bitching about how Dan and Machida should be the main event, the fight turns out to be horrible to most on here, and then they bitch that they were glad it wasn't the main event. Fucking retarded. You all know you are glad that Hendo-Machida didn't go another two rounds.

Ronda's personality cult did that and then some. It managed to overshadow the fact that it was an absurd mismatch in the shallowest division in the sport.

I wasn't even arguing from a business standpoint and you know that.

Yeah, Hendo vs Machida should've been 5 rounds. It might've gotten good with 2 extra rounds.
