    That water bottle Hendricks kept spitting tobacco into is laughing at him now.

    i guess they realised its better to have lawler as champ than hendricks
    thinking forums had any significant bearing over their decision is a tad wishful

    What's weird is that he was on The Mma hour recently & it sounded like Hendricks was ready to gear up for the rematch. I don't buy the whole thing about him not wanting to wait... UFC must have stepped in and told him, we need you to fight... the Lawler/Hendricks III fight has no buzz.

    My bet is Hendricks requested to fight in Dallas. If he beats Matt BNrown(which he should), you can bet he's getting the next shot.

    Any business worth its salt researches fan forums etc. And Sherdog being the biggest (right?) is defintely being monitored by there media research team.

    It's simple.

    Lawler didn't want to fight so soon. Hendricks wanted to fight. Matt Brown asked for a Top guy, Hendricks stepped up to the fucking plate. Hendricks is God. Hendricks will destroy Matt Brown and fight again in 3 months and take that BELT back.

    Hendricks said he wanted to fight sooner and Lawler said he wanted to wait, so Hendricks took another fight in the meantime. Doesn't hurt that it's in his hometown either.

    Sherdog has about as much impact on the UFC as CM punk has on the MW division.

    Matt Brown is so resilient he can get a decision.

    Eh you'd be surprised. Bungie has an employee Constantly running PR in the Destiny the Videogame subreddit. pretty much listens to their bitching promises to Change things to how they want them, Then run's damage control when the update only give them half of what they promised and breaks the game.

    LOL I doubt that. I can see Brown 48-47 decisioning him if Hendricks can't put his lights out before the end of the 2nd.

    I love Diaz but how so? He hasn't fought in 2 years and coming off 2 losses?

    You're not understanding my point. I feel fan feedback from all wakes of life resulted in this fight getting canned. The buzz for it was minimal at best.

    Based on what? The fact that he has lost his last two fights?
