Just something I thought was curious...no mention of Big Nog fighting. This is what I meant by Dana not properly promoting guys.

There is a billboard in las vegas that advertises-
UFC 73 Tito Ortiz VS. Rashad Evans
And it has a picture of there two heads staring each other down.

It doesnt mention the two title fights.
Or the debut of Big Nog.

WTF!!

I know Ortiz is a big draw, but not bigger the TWO title fights. It is understandable to promote it over Heath Herring and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira because Big Nog hasn't fought in the UFC and Herring got dry humped in his last match. Promoting Ortiz might be a mistake. Not promoting title fights is a mistake. They always mention the light weight match last and light weights never are in the main event (Light weight Tuf not included) and that is a huge mistake. Light weights never disappoint, but Ortiz sure can.

I saw one with tito vs. rashad, anderson vs.Marqaurt?!, and sherk vs. franca. Nothing about Nog, but I thought not bad advertising.

If I remember correctly they didnt promote A. Silva really much at all for his fight with Leben, I think the ufc knew his potential to be a star and still didnt even mention him, but I dont remember the main event of that card either. Now hes the MW champion and has two KO's and a submission in the ufc.

I just thought it was a curious choice not to even mention Big nog in the add i saw, and have seen since then.
