I would hate to be that fly, or any fly..lol...

Sure, you would know the scoop, but you couldn't tell anybody because as soon as you try to get close they are gonna either smash you to pieces or spray you with poison. In a fly's world you are probably better off being one of the idiots who flies blindly into the bright purple light...

Maybe this is Dana trying to be more like Roger Goodell to coincide with the UFC getting a deal with FOX and "making it" to the same level as leagues like the NFL...

1. I notice he didn't use the "F" word in his tweet.

2. He sounds like a hypocrite

Okay, but we had a perfectly good fight in place.

Honestly, now it seems like Nick Diaz vs BJ Penn is more exciting than GSP vs Condit...and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way. Plus he retains that "bad boy" image that people love to just eat up and gets a marquee fight on the same card.

Now all we need is for Diaz to come out after GSP beats Condit and challenge him for the title right on the spot.

I know I can't be the only one laughing about this...I'm sure Vince McMahon is laughing too.

Or I could be in an AC/DC video...

yeah, this doesn't make sense. I guess Dana didn't want his poster boy to lose.

Yeah good point. I really really wanted to see GSP vs Diaz. I don't care at all about the main event now but that's just me. Nick and BJ have trained together before so I never pictured them fighting each other till now but it should be great.

Very strange indeed. The punishment is that Diaz no longer gets his title shot. At least not yet. He'll have to beat BJ to be next in line again.

I think I would rather see GSP/Diaz than GSP/Condit.

Whatever! I'll watch anyway.

I would also add that the punishment is pissing BJ off by taking his opponent, THEN making you fight him

Some fighters don't fare as well when angry, but I don't believe BJ is one of those guys, BJ is definitely not a guy I would want to fight when he is mad
