Re: MMA Discussion Thread
To be fair, Anderson fought Bonnar to save the card, not because he wanted to. Same with Jones. No one else would take the fight. Shogun rejected, Machida rejected, even Rashad rejected. Sonnen would fight but UFC felt that if they did that in Toronto, it would ruin their relationship with the MGM Grand chain. Vitor was the only guy who stepped up.
Nick Diaz is no slouch in competition. I'm sure the only reason GSP is asking for Diaz is so that he can kick his ass, because Diaz is a tough guy in any case of the matter. But I still agree that Hendricks should've gotten the shot.
