    What are some recent fights that - in hindsight - shouldn't have been made? (Not including CM Punk/Greg Hardy)

    IMO the most egregious was the Frankie Edgar/Yair Rodriguez matchup... Yair was biting off way more than he could chew, his hardest opponent before Frankie was Andre "Touchy" Fili, for God's sake! Edgar was a colossal step up.
    This is the face of regret:

    What other beatdowns should have never been scheduled?

    I know someone is going to want to say Shevchenko/Cachoeria was poor matchmaking, but it really wasn't. It's just an example of a fighter being significantly better than her entire field of competition.

    There is a difference between bad matchmaking and a lack of competition. Name one fighter, who was in the division at the time, that wouldn't have been destroyed just like Cachoeria was?

    Your first mistake was assuming I read posts.

    This may be it -- that was such a terrible match up.

    Do substitutions due to injury count? If so, Stipe Miocic vs Fabio Maldonaldo was very WTF in retrospect.
