    He was really busy with the making of the latest Star Wars movie, they needed a woogie for a lot of the scenes.

    he got released because of some triviality about sponsorship at the weight ins.

    It's probably because he's so damn boring and he has the chance to really ruin the 185 division by systematically laying on all the top contenders. The best lindland fights are the ones he gets ko'd in, well i guess we could mention the baroni fights aswell but they didn't really have much to do with lindland.

    Yeah it would be a snooze fest. At anyrate it's kind of a shame that he's left in the cold, but mma will probably prosper a lot better in the mainstream without him.

    well he won his fights the last 4 in a row & 8 of his last 10.
    salaverry, the crow louiseau (sp?), & lindland all deserve title shots well before quarry. damn, i'd even be happy if they had babalu cut weight & fight franklin :x:

    The olyimpics are about who has won what, MMA promotions are about who sells tickets.

    Unfourtunate, but true.

    Quarry is on a KO streak and is well known, UFC obviously wants a high profile title defense.

    lindland's banned from the UFC, babalu already cut weight to 185 from 205, so another drop would be hard

    too bad they're not just racist like pride is. (i.e. Let's pick someone talented to fight against the most popular japanese fighter we got).

    Lindland got dropped even though he won his last night. Probably because he's boring. I actually thought he lost

    setting up tournament fights to ensure that at least one japanese fighter gets into the final = racism :wiggle:

    i thought he got dropped because he continued to run his mouth about how he deserved a title shot & that the TUF fighters were receiving undeserved popularity.

    and if thats true... diaz better watch out :noes:
