I don't get it either. 2 top 10 guys and one of them was ranked number one not too long ago.Formiga would have been in the tourney instead of Urishitani except it wouldn't have made sense to have someone in there who had already lost to another fighter in it

wasnt formiga ranked #1 at one point until uncle creepy beat him?  I hope dodson wins and knocks out mighty mouse... we have too many point fighters holding the belt right now (Dominick Cruz, mighty mouse, GSP).

Who is the Che Mills in this fight? Personally i think the match up favors Dodson but don't sleep on Formiga, he's a killer.

I know who he his. This fight reminds me of McDonald/Mills in that there is a tangible talent discrepancy.

Do you not know who Formiga is? Or do you have that low an opinion of Dodson?
