    With all these FOTN awards he's won, you'd think they'd do everything to put in him 5 round feature bouts.

    Pretty good point. Probably because he isn't ranked high enough.

    With all the cards the UFC has put on in the last few years, I don't think his rank is a reasonable excuse.

    Te Huna only got that main event because he's from New Zealand, nothing more to it. Maybe Sanchez could have gotten tonight's main event since it's in Albuquerque but in no way, shape, or form should he ever be given billing over Benson Henderson.

    Last I heard, it was.

    Te Huna at WW would be crazy.
