Can't really expect him to cut his holiday home short an get back into fighting shape in 1 month. at least Matt is home and can start a fight camp right away.

Rather see him fight Struve, I think he beats Defries easily.

It's getting tiresome listening to Dana drop names when things don't go quite right. People have injuries, lives, and families.

Well he is like a 5 yr old. Things dont go his way, he whines, cries, kicks and throws a temper tantrum.

Hahaha. Sounds on point. My friend follows DW on twitter. Last week an older gentlemen pointed out that the last few PPVs were missing big names and seemed watered down in comparison to PPVs of the past. (A legitimate gripe)

What was Dana's retort you ask???

'you and your one follower can fuck off'

MMA (mainly UFC) will never reach the status of the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc when their president/commissioner talks like that.

Nelson's punching power, grappling and durability would be too much for Kongo regardless.

Kongo has been complaining about not getting marquee match-ups recently, this was about the best he could have hoped for and he turned it down.

Personally, and this is just my opinion, I want to see as many fight cards as possible. That being said, I understand that with the high number of cards being put on, the cards will not always be stacked with "big names". I appreciate the lesser known fighters just as much as the elite fighters. Therefore, the older gentleman reminds me of some people I know that will skip over all the fights and only watch the co-main(sometimes) and main event.

Also, I appreciate the fact that in the UFC, we get to hear what's going on behind the scenes. Thanks, Dana.
