    How the hell are nine WWs in the top five?

    He meant like on the PPV there are 9 tough WWs fighting in the top 5 fights I think.

    It adds up :

    GSP is in first place, and all other places are dubbel staked.

    = 9

    Ha! This should mean that if Diaz does follow through we should get at least 2 top WW fights on that card. Sweet!

    I figured that's what he meant, it just sounded funny. I also completely approve putting together cards in this fashion. Surprised the UFC didn't move towards this a few years ago. It seems like the simplest formula for saving cards. You keep eveyone training at the same time so if you need to move people around, there are far less issues.

    Lol, math is hard.

    Seriously though, sounds like Dana is worried about Diaz dropping out of the fight. Maybe it's due to Nick's comments about GSP whopping his ass. I don't think there is any way Nick drops out of this fight. A huge payday and a huge opportunity all for the price of one ass-whooping.

    So of the top 5 fights on the card (main card fights), I guess he is saying they will all be WWs. So he has replacements upon replacements.

    Nine WW's in the top 5 FIGHTS on the card. The whole maincard should consist of WW's then. And someone will be fighting himself.

    Not only that, it makes for an easier way to make progressive fights. GSP defends his belt, and a new #1 contender is made by winning a fight on the same card. Also, you identify two potential #1 contenders. Then 4 months later, GSP fights the new contender, and the other two fight to see who fights GSP next time. It makes a lot of sense.

    Well, one of the top WWs might be facing a low ranked WW.

    Yeah but it isn't like he said top WWs, he just said WWs. That is most likely what he means, but this statement is pretty fail lol.

    He's counting Nick, hence the odd number since you can't add in GSP.

    Diaz
    Rory vs Condit
    Hendricks vs Ellenberger
    Plus two more yet to be official fights

    Adds up to 9 ww's. thy really need to teach more mathematical logic classes in school.
