Diaz lost over 1 million dollars for being a huge douche. Way to go.

Where was is broadcast that Diaz lost $1,000,000 bucks? If so, and true, then I have to agree that he shot himself in the foot - twice. Playing the game for the green is not all that hard to do for anyone..even if you lost that dime bag of dirt weed and had a melt down.

I've got big talk-shit money from any taker that Dos Santos, dismantles Velasquez.

OK, I have thrown in the towel, and am with ArmFarmer 100%. Who's cock has to be sucked to get the "Edit Button" re-activated?

No doubt you caught what others missed. White cares little about who is the best, and who he can trash talk. His job is specific to building hype, hype which sells tickets and PPV slots.
.
Zuffa already owned SF when White started talking shit about Reem. Who fucking does that? I will tell you. Reem saw bigger money fight for the UFC rather than StrikeFarce.
.
White was advised to sacrifice several fighters when he decided to nix Golden Glory's contracts with Zuff'a SF holdings. Its all be a lesson in MMA promotion positioning. Who are the winners?
.
Ever fighter (including Diaz)who has left SF for the UFC, Zuffa, Lorenzo, his brother and father, Dana, and Coker. Why Coker, because surely his by-out contract provided his same salary if not a raise, provided him a larger percentage piece of each venue, and a share swap - earn out moving forward.
.
You hit the top of the iceberg, the UFC CEO said Reem was not UFC caliber, now in less than a month, he is a full fledged UFC fighter, and is less than 1 fight away from a title shot.
.
We each have our biases and favorites, this is simply a form of adult entertainment business in motion.

Now thats cleared up we can all agree its 185.

Dano, you are probably confused due to the severe beating Carwin put on him that he managed to come back from. Sometimes I forget he actually won that one. Regardless, I think Brock vs Reem is a legit contender match. Brock has only lost the champion recently, and Overeem, well he's got the credentials and just needs a win over a legit top 5 hw. I think it makes sense considering Carwin, Schaub, Nelson, and most others have lost recently.
Also, yes I did watch that foul and that was pretty crazy, however the guy WAS being a massive douche prefight. It doesn't justify it, but it made it more enjoyable to watch. It's one thing for rashad to do the kiss-nut-grab when he's getting beat up, that's being game, but doing it prefight is super lame.

@ dano - only if you count the loss of about 10 inches of his colon.
danomite- September 21, 2011 at 12:10 pm
oh sorry, he's only lost his last fight. for some reason I thought Brock had lost two in a row. But anyway, he's fighting Reem, who Dana White himself said a few months ago wasn't even a top ten heavyweight. Now he's saying the winner will get a title shot.

Holy crap, did anyone check out that "Worst MMA Foul Ever" link? Where was that dudes corner? Why didn't they jump in and roll that guy when he keeps pounding their unconscious fighter?
ArmFarmer- September 21, 2011 at 10:33 am
dano, can you be more specific? What the hell are you talking about.
danomite- September 21, 2011 at 8:29 am
in case anybody was wondering which division was the weakest, the fact that a title shot is being offered to a guy on a two fight losing streak, should he win his next fight, will clear things up a bit
