What will happen if lutter does pull off the upset??? Will they fight again for the title.
Or will they pretend it never happened. Wonder why they won't allow the champ to decide if it's title or non title.
"If" he wins, and it's a big if, I think they would give him an immediate rematch because they could sell it to the casual fan easily.
you think a Lutter/Silva rematch would sell more then a Franklin/Silva 2?
the only reason Lutter is even getting a shot was for the sorry reason for a TUF 4 show...(which was the worst TUF of all).....
Sure,he might have the style to beat Silva,but he may not have the style to beat other Middleweight contenders who want a shot at the title too....Franklin,Loiseau,Swick,Leben,Mcdonald
Lutter f*%ked up....if he wants a shot at the title again he needs to work his way up from scratch...even if he wins...
i also think Lutter has a much better shot at winning now that its a 3 round fight....we all know Lutter's cardio is not good enough for a 5 round war...3 rounds is a much greater chance of him pulling off a decision win LnP style if he cant get a sub.
