Plenty of people said Lesnar was a sideshow, freak, and was only being brought in to sell tickets.....which he was....and he did.
His inexperience got him subbed in the first round. Not to mention most assumed Mir was damaged goods after the accident at that point. The first Mir fight was seen as a test of Lesnar's abilities.
Ronda is a dominate champ who happens to be tearing through her division, facing a fighter coming off a 5 year layoff. Make as many excuses as you want, but this fight is not being made based on the expectations that Gina is the best opponent possible. You can't possibly think a title shot is warranted after 5 years off. This is a desperate and cheap way to get PPV buys.
