    because Championship fights matter more than any other fight. Plain and simple- It doesn't matter if Hendo, Machida, Rampage, or Texiera have paid more dues, putting a championship fight in the co-main because veterans are on the same card cheapens the belt. Quit with this retardacy on how Hendo/Machida and Jackson/Texeira should headline.

    Including the people starting threads on how Hendo/Machida should headline over the very first UFC women's title fight?

    How could you possibly "cheapen a belt" more than it already is? The belt Rousey currently holds was created two weeks ago for a division that has had zero fights and currently has how many fighters, two?

    doesnt mean a preemptive bitch-back is warranted

    I think the bitching is because many think the Rousey fight should be headlining a free card... not a PPV.

    Really?..... I think the gripe is with them being on ppv and not free tv or co-main with bigger title fight.....

    All the other divisions didn't have any fights in them at one point, too. History has to start somewhere.

    Title fights should headline, I agree. I hope Carmouche takes the motivation of being treated as a can and uses it to throw a monkey wrench into the Rousey hype machine!

    History is not being made here. Wmma is merely a sideshow in a niche sport; it should be headlining an FX card. The importance of and interest in wmma is being wildly overstated.

    And you base this on what? Are you a fortune teller? You don't know how far it will go.

    I wasn't aware that you're personal likes and dislikes was a cross section of all MMA fans everywhere.
