And to say there's no credible alternatives is BS. What about Henderson? I could have sworn White was busy hyping that as a much see match as recently as August. The same time he was saying that Sonnen needed several victories at 205Ibs to warrant a title shot. What about Cormier who repeatedly offered to move down in weight to face Jones. Gustafsson has plenty of victories at 205Ibs too.

This is the actions of a blundering company backed into a corner. It's pathetic.
I have no idea what you are talking about. After TUF has become a MASSIVE anti-climax over the years with tons of hype invested into Page v Evans, Kimbo Slice, Chuck v Tito 3, Brock v JDS, Bisping v Mayhem, GSP v Kos, ect. They need a fight that wont turn into yet another damp squib to breath life back into TUF... This is a genius piece of business and wont do more harm than good...honest...

Booking a huge mismatch is obviously the way forward to counter the decline of a series in which a feud hasnt really delivered since Hendo's right hand connected with Bispings mouth, right?
