    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why isn't UFC hyping up Lyoto?

    He's undefeated and ABUSED franklin and bonnar.
    I think he'll do really well in the UFC.

    He's not a household name like crocop or rampage so he probably won't bring in tons of new fans.

    I bet the bigger reason is because he's new to the UFC. They never seem to push anyone from outside their org.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Wonder if they'll show highlights of Lyoto-Penn.

    Given that he couldn't finish Penn at 205, probably not.

    Though he's awesome, he does have the potential to be deeply, deeply boring. Anyone stay awake through his fight at the WFA? Possibly they don't want to risk an overhyped damp squib.

    After watching Lyoto/Franklin, Lyoto/Bonnar, Lyoto/Penn, and Lyoto/White, he seems to be on his way to becoming the next Pedro Rizzo.

    seems lately that with anderson silva, crocop and now lyoto they are hoping that their in ring performance will be their sort of push as you say since his biggest wins came outside the ufc. they seem to be pushing rampage hard though

    Now that Silva - Lutter is only going to be 3 rounds hopefully PPV buyers like myself will actually get to see Lyoto fight.
