"What I'm going to end up doing is probably taking a big, huge fight that should have been on pay-per-view and put it on free TV. I'm actually working on it right now. I said I'd make up for that, and trust me, I'm gonna."

The above picture says it all. UFC President Dana White was flat out embarrassed and enraged by UFC 112's main event, particularly by Anderson Silva's peculiar antics. If you remember, directly after the fight, White promised to make it up to the fans who paid their hard-earned money for that atrocious display of mixed martial arts in some way, shape or form. Via MMA Weekly, Dana details his plans for how he is going to do that. It looks likely that a legitimate, big time main event is coming to Spike TV or Versus in the near future. Any thoughts on what that fight may be? Or, better yet, take this time to let D.W. know what kind of fight will rid your memory of that woeful April night in Abu Dhabi.

put sonnen and silva on reg tv so anderson doesnt get his ppv bonuses and i can watch him obliterate sonnen like the xenophobic republican criminal he is in HD for free

(this is not fighter bashing, these are facts, if anything it would be person bashing because my dislike for him has nothing to do with him as a fighter - other than that i think his style is pretty boring)

Only fair to make it a title fight on free tv to replace for the bad title fight from silva.

Don't start with the politics.

This is good news I guess. I think the UFC should be showing more quality fights on free-TV anyways. They are having so many PPVs now that I'd like to see bigger headliners on the free ones than hamill and jon jones. Don't get me wrong, I like both those guys, but they don't get me pumped for a main event.

While they are "refunding" us for silva/maia, how bout putting two big ones on there to "refund" us for the silva/leites fight too.

As for who it will be...tough to call, maybe the premier of Jake Shields? Forrest v. Rampage? Either way, I'm sure I'll be excited for it.

I know he had to pull out of the primary do to a court case but I hadn't heard anything about a criminal conviction. What's his criminal record?

james toney vs randy couture on spike so dana can try and make boxing look bad while *making* up for the anderson silva fight

but a jakes shields vs dan hardy or something like that would be cool with me as well.
