The original main event was Aldo defending his title against Koch. That's a good fight.
Koch got injured, and they moved Frankie Edgar in. That's a good fight too, maybe even a better fight.
Aldo got injured, and for main event #3, on less than one month's notice
, they found Anderson and Bonnar.
And by the way, everybody
expected Anderson to win, he's the p4p #1 and quite possibly the GOAT. So you can quit acting smug that you called the result. Because in fact you didn't
call the result.
You covered your ass. If Anderson had taken a while to warm up and won in the 2nd or 3rd round or taken a decision, you would have claimed that Zuffa "asked him to push it out a few rounds" like you also predicted.
