Big Country Vs Josh Barnett would have been 10x more exciting i would actually be pumped for that fight.  Dana let the past die and get Barnett in the UFC because,  A.  he doesn't get injured every month like most hws.  B. he brings it win or lose its gonna be a good action packed fight.

Yep. Funny they predicted a knee injury too. Either Carwin has BEEN injured or someone just happened to guess a major knee injury weeks ago and should go buy a lotto ticket now. I get why it was lied about/hidden because it would have shitcanned a TUF season that already has drawn lower ratings than a Ron Popeil infomercial. But the blatant dishonesty is a joke. Shane was asked straight up ON HERE about his knee and the rumor the fight was scratched. He refuted that claim and then began this VADA thing which is all bullshit if you figure he was injured so why would they test an injured fighter. I'd have rather Carwin said nothing here than to say the knee was fine, etc. Again, either it's been known this fight was scratched (my belief) or it's amazing how Roy Nelson's hints at injury coupled with posts on here were dead on balls accurate. Look, if I tell you Tom Brady is out for the year because of a torn labrum; you won't buy it if he and the team say it isn't true. But what would you think if they then broke news of a torn labrum?Yeah. You wouldn't think someone had a crystal ball. You'd think someone was pulling fans by theirs in order to serve a narrative and protect their entity.
