so i just logged onto UFC.com and i see a advertisement for UFC on Demand (the site where you can buy and wathc old fights)
here is what the poster was. Ivan Salaverry vs Nathan Mardquart. Is it just me or would it not be a good idea to showcase one of the most boring fights in recent times. Espically of a fighter they are trying to push towards a title shot (Nate).
Thoughts?

Talk about self-sabotage, poor Nate . I thought they just purchased Salaverrry's contract from the WFA too, then I read he signed with the IFL. I would guess IFL now, because he looks way worse in that fight. Running from bell to bell.

That match was so disappointing Nate and Ivan were both Amazing fighters but it just cancelled out into 3 rounds of lay and pray.

Styles make fights. This was just a bad matchup and the UFC should have known that. It's like putting to wrestles together and the asking why they aren't standing toe to toe.

Very true, this fight is like trying to sit through and watch a golf match.
