Because $$$. Come on man, you know it's still a business and that freak show--even if it doesn't bring in quite the legion of WWE fanboys and haters alike who want to see Mark Hunt knock Lesnar's head clear off to Arizona--is still going to bring in a lot more dollars than Miesha Tate vs Amanda "we still can't quite settle on how we're going to pronounce your last name" Nunes as a main event.

I forget. Did you rant hard against any of the Bellator freak show fights, or is it just because here you get a chance to say "WWE" and "UFC" in the same sentence. Would you feel the same way if they finally brought Fedor over? You can guarantee some similar fuckery based on "will make us the most money the quickest off this guy" vs "who really earned the headliner spot by being in a 5 rd title fight on this card." At least we know one of these guys (HUNTOOOOOOO) is still competitive. That's a lot more you can say for Shamrock and Gracie or especially that Kimbo and Dada fight.

If I was to make my own personal list of top 10 fights from all three days I'm most looking forward to, I'm not sure it would sit any higher than #9 if it even made the list. Of course I'm going to watch it; I'm going to watch every single goddamn one of these fights. I'd rather watch Jones vs Cormier. But then again, the fight that gets me most pumped for 202 so far is Carlos Condit and Demian Maia. I'm not some shill sitting here saying we should all bow down before Lesnar vs Hunt as the greatest, most "deserving" of the main event slot for ufc 200. But given the circumstances surrounding this card, I'd be dellusional to act like I don't understand how it happened.

I really am quite dissatisfied with the number and quality of these submissions.

Thank God Tate is the main event and that a juiced fake fighter is not.

i didn't say i thought it SHOULD be the main event, i just said i wasn't horribly surprised they were making it that way and don't think you should be either. i didn't like lesnar hunt as the co-main when there's that aldo edgar fight on there, but i also wasn't going to waste my time ranting about it.

i also keep typing lesnar mir every fucking time too.

I was going to have a hard time paying 50 bucks for a Lesnar fight
I feel much better paying 50 bucks for a Tate fight on my credit card

I did not complain when he was the co-main event I know he sells tickets
but to take Jones off because he tested with PED's and then to make Lesnar the main event, one cannot even have a conversation without sounding like an idiot. because lesnor is obviously juiced. I am sure a few reporters brought this to their attention and brought them to their senses .
