Earlier this week I broke down the many reasons it was so fucking absurd that Brandon Vera might earn a title shot with a win over Shogun Rua Saturday night. I wasn’t the only one who thought it was crazy, so Dana White answered his critics by declaring the winner of Ryan Bader – Lyoto Machida would get the title shot if he won more impressively than Vera or Shogun. Again – Huh? Jon Jones has crushed all four of those dudes. To his credit, Bader is the only person who has actually won multiple fights since being destroyed by Jon Jones. Whatever.
Out of the four guys Lyoto was the toughest puzzle, brandon had the biggest mouth, bader felt the strongest, shogun lasted the longest. lol

Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner should be a good fight. DaMarques Johnson and Mike Swick are both in need of a win. But why is Phil Davis stuck on the undercard? Dude is 9-1 with his only loss coming in a title eliminator to Rashad Evans. The UFC must hate Phil Davis. If anyone on this card deserves a chance to win and earn a title shot, it’s Phil Davis. Why the Hell is Phil Davis on the undercard fighting a guy making his UFC debut!? Davis has beaten Stann and Alexander Gustafsson, the one guy in the light heavyweight division who probably does deserve the next title shot.
Why is Nam phucking Phan above Phil Davis on a UFC card? This is an embarrassment. Whatever. Watch it. Its free.
