A fight between Silva and Lindland would have been good, but Kang? No way.
I vaguely remember something to that effect. Meh, with so much dumb shit thrown around you kind of get jaded.
The Kang thing was because Pride had just ended. Silva wasn't legit until he fought Hendo (win dismissed as some kind of fluke apparently), Filho (Silva was accused of ducking him too), Kang and Misaki. Then those guys started to get beat and Lindland was almost murdered by Vitor so haters needed new idols.
