The most recent fight cards were still put together by Scott Adams, I think that Adams has done a great job with the cards and think that he and Harris should not be demoted. Personally, I think that Silva should just deal with the UFC. His decision to schedule another Randy/Liddell fight and a Faber/Pulver rematch is completely baffling to me...

Agreed. I personally think he sucks at match making, the only good ones he comes up with are when they are so very obvious.

It's been widely scrutinized that ZUFFA was prett unhappy the WEC matchmaker relegated Donald Cerrone vs Razor Rob McCullough (which the few who have seen it are proclaiming it to be fight of the year). Instead they chose to showcase Rosholt vs a no name in a fight that was only mildly entertaining and sloppy for the most part.

To this day no clip of the fight has made it to the net. On Donald Cerrone's MySpace you can find a 15 second clip of the fight and for thoise few seconds it looks awesome.

For some reason the WEC doesn't even have the fight on their upcoming Wreckage shows. It's baffleing that they're not falling all over themselves to get this fight on the air...as time is running out as people have very short attention spans and in a few more weeks people won't care much.

Good points, but my understanding for the Donald/Rob fight not making air time(besides Rosholt's contract provision) was due to Rob's dismal performance against Alexander and also because Cowboy tested positive for a banned substance. I just figured it was their due punishment. All in all though, I don't think Adams and Harris should be demoted because of the contract provision they set up with Rosholt that ultimately caused them not to air "the fight of the year".
