Am I reading this right? Reinhardt hasn't fought since 2008 according to the fightfinder.

And even the two guys he fought post-Lauzon were 2-6 and 0-5. Someone walk me through this one?

KwikTempah - lol Reinharts stepping up in class again , I wonder what will happen .Chris - Jason posts here and his record is kind of a running joke on the UG , he is a good bloke and a good fighter but it's fair to day his record is padded :)if you ask him about it on here he will just say "my manager chooses the opponents , I just get in there and fight " something like that. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


That's my point though. I've seen his fights before, and I saw Lauzon run him over. What's the point of this?

Sometimes Zuffa makes no sense whatsoever.

The point of this is to get a Chinese fighter a win.

Exactly.

Zuffa has big plans for Zhang and don't want anyone pinning another loss on his record. They obviously don't have a lot of faith in Zhang being able to compete against guys currently in the UFC LW division, so they went out and signed Reihardt to fight him. They're giving him the Huerta treatment.

I'm not so sure about that. I have zero faith in Zhang after watching him struggle with Danny Downes. Zuffa is trying to coddle the guy but I'm not sure he can even handle Reinhardt-level competition. I doubt Jason will win, but I wouldn't be shocked if he did.

This. Plus Australia is the closest physical place they have to Asia, where they're currently having events. So they're probably hoping to see a good amount of people travel to there to increase the gate and possibly use the event to track growth in that part of the world.

China has 1.3 billion people that have more discretionary spending dollars every day, are fiercely nationalistic, and are underserved from sports & entertainment point of view.

I guess all that requires dusting off a few Jason Reinhardts to give people something to wave flags over.

Jason gets destroyed and embarrassed. He has hidden from legit fights his entire career. There were so many fighters that he could have fought in the mid-west that he dodged it's not funny. Torres, Bolt, Bruketta, Ackerman, Wieman, Lee and on and on and on.

He's put away under two minute if this fight even happens.

I believe its at 155. Zhang fights at 155. At least the first wec fight was at 155. As far as Jason being 5'6 you sure bout that? Hes shorter then my g/f and shes only 5'2".

Anything can happen. Jason has been training hard for this fight at a top camp. I wish him the best.

Also, he's one of the worst LWs that's competed in the Zuffa-era UFC.

 He's also never beaten anyone worth a shit and built a completely fake record beating awful fighters in Iowa.

Crazy to think he may not be much respected.

How bad is Zhang that Zuffa had to use Reinhardt for this fight? Even with that said I'll take him over Jason under two minutes.
