Anyone else think it's an absolute travesty that CB Dolloway vs Mike Massenzio is on the main card instead of Yushin Okami vs Dean Lister?

It just doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Here you have a guy that's going to be next in line for a title shot, and on the biggest card of the year you're not going to give him exposure? Plus I'd really like to see Dean Lister in action again. One of the most underrated MW's in the division.

exactly what I was going to say, but I guess CB is probably more popular with the casual fans because he was just in the tuf finale a few months ago. Most likely that's the reason.

I agree completely, that and bump Congo for Reese Andy and Matt Hamill.

yeah i cant figure that one out, how in the world that made it to the main card.

But as everyone says, people want to see the TUF people on tv.

So hardcore fans get screwed in the long run.
Lister vs Okami should be a great fight.

it is absolutely ridiculous that Okami Vs. Lister isn't on the main card. instead we get to see CB Dolloway Vs. Mike Mazsenzio which is a travesty. Okami was the #1 contender a few months ago but now he gets relegated to the under card? not to mention it appears Rampage Vs. Wanderlei 3 is the 2nd fight of the night on the main card before Dolloway Vs. Masenzio. absolutely proposterous.

yea, i noticed on the ufc homepage, it lists forrest/rashad, nog/mir, then dollaway/massenzio, wandy/rampage after. Thats ridiculous. i'm alright with kongo/al turk on the main card. Kongo needs another strong showing (meaning no decision).

But not dollaway. I like cb and i'd like to watch his fight, but not at the expense of okami/lister. That is by far the best prelim fight in a long time. I dont think it even makes sense since okaim, with a win, will probably be the next to challenge silva.

Just my two cents.

I am very excited to see this fight. Kinda sucks that it isn't on the main card.

I actually like the main card but I am surprized that the Massenzio fight is on the main card. I say Massenzio fight because he's gonna f**k up CB.
I like that Kongo is on the main card as well, against a new opponent to the UFC.
The Lister/Okami fight should be alright but lets face it, it will be a decision victory for someone, hopefully Lister, after Listers last fight though I am pretty interested in seeing him fight but not against Okami.

That better not be the order of the damn card. If Wand and Rampage is the fourth fight I will be pissed(don't know why but things like that matter to me lol.)

the Rampage/Wanderlei fight should be #3 not #2 and the Kongo or Dollaway fight should be on the prelim, Okami & Lister would be perfect on the main card would make it so much better
