    Sorry, but I can't keep up with the politics. What do you mean got rid of him? How do they get rid of a fighter?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_James_Lindland

    After continuing to maintain a mostly-winning record in the UFC, Lindland was dropped from the UFC roster for breaking one of the sponsorship and advertising-related terms of his contract, and has continued his professional MMA career with 3 straight wins in high-level international competition.

    Lindland was coming off a victory over Joe Doerkson that only further cemented his status as the heir apparent to Rich Franklin’s title. However, during the weigh-ins he wore a shirt advertising an online sports book that the UFC deemed as breaching his contract because of their sponsorship terms.

    Well they got rid of him because he is ugly and not an exciting fighter like Franklin. Now they want to bring him back so he can beat up the foreign black guy and put him to work on his farm afterwards.

    Swick wants a piece of Silva and Dana said during the post fight conference he would fight one more fight and then maybe get his shot. Dana is wishy-washy so who knows if its going to stick.

    I feel really sorry for the guy who wins TUF4 and has to get in the octagon with Anderson Silva. It might as well be free on Spike like the last Ortiz and Shamrock fight because it won't last very long.

    This might get me flamed but I strongly feel that Swick will be middleweight champ withing a few years the way things are going.

    I know Ace is a good looking guy and everything, but I was under the impression that he really wasn't built up yet as a champion...With only a $32,000 payday at his last title defense, he must not pull in the numbers that Liddell or Tito do. On the other hand, Silva may not look all American (like me) or even speak English, but his flashy stanup is much more of a crowd pleaser than Rich's.

    Lindland is an exciting fighter, watch his match with Rampage.
