Its hypocritical.

Personally, I don't mind Royce in an exhibition bout or if he is matched at his level. Someone old who wants to still fight. Royce vs Ken?!?!?!
No its not.

Again Coleman and Lesnar were matched up hard in the UFC. White didn't feed either man a bunch of gimmie opponents so that they could keep winning. To be on in the UFC they had to fight genuine opponents. In comparison, Walker's bouts have all been heavily hyped featured bouts on Showtime but his opponents have been abysmal. Nagy had a 1-2 record and Carson hadn't fough since 2001 when they first scheduled his match against Walker. That's what makes Walker's fights freakshow bouts - the quality of his opposition gives away the fact that he's not someone who's able or even seriously considering transitioning to MMA full time.
