The winner of a main-card bout between "The Ultimate Fighter 14" winner John Dodson (13-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Jussier Formiga (14-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will get the first shot at the recently awarded flyweight title.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

That would have been awesome.

Imo all number 1 contender fights should be 5 rounders. It gets them ready for the real thing.

The short answer is nicknames in Brazil began when they were a Portuguese colony. Typically, people have three to four names, their given names, their mother's last name, then their father's. Sometimes, a saint's name to bump it up to four. And being such a populated country, it wasn't uncommon for same or similar names to come up. So both for ease and distinction, it became more commonplace to use nicknames. As two MMA examples off the top of my head..


Renan Barao - Renan do Nascimento Mota Pegado
Zuluzinho - Wagner da Conceicao Martins

with this and also what prozac said about making it co-main.
They shouldn't be worried about time considering the Main event probably will not go the distance. The odds are -425 that Browne vs Silva will NOT go the distance.
The co-main may have the bigger name in Ellenberger but the FW fight has more at stake.
