Im too lazy to actually follow it live. Any word on the title situation? Will Randy be stripped of the title? Will both Mir/Noguiera and Lesnar/Couture be for titles?

If that's the case, Dana and I differ in our definition of "biggest fight ever". Biggest cash cow ever? Probably. Biggest fight ever? No f'ing way.

its really tough to pick a biggest fight ever because to the ufc as a business its about the buys, and a fight like this draws in a ton of casual fans who dont think like those of us that follow the sport closely. so as a die hard fan, i completely agree with you, but the buzz this one will create on espn and other news outlets that dont normally cover mma is going to be huge, so i can see why dana would say that.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I just think it's unfortunate that Dana has to overhype the fight like this rather than just being one of "us".

I know...it's all business. That doesn't mean I have to like it, though.
