Especially fights that the UFC wanted to happen.

Just recently:

Overeem losing to Big foot (would have fought Cain)

Rashad losing to Lil Nog (would have fought Anderson)

Bisping losing to Belfort (would have fought Anderson)

 

I know there's more. This shit seems to happen all the time.

I think it happened 4 times at lightweight in 2011.

George Sotiropolous if he beat Siver, Pettis if he beat Guida, Miller if he beat Benson, and Guillard if he beat Lauzon. Benson Henderson ended up getting it after beating Guida in the top contender fight.

Funny thing about Reem losing is it set up a great contender fight against JDS and since Cain is fighting that night as well the UFC actually gained by it...

Somehow if BF beat Cain and Reem beat JDS you'd have a crazy rematch for all the marbles. Phone Post

I think it seems pretty clear now that that fight was meaningless as far as getting a title shot goes...

Josh Grispi could have just waited for Aldo to heal up and they would have set him up for the UFC's first featherweight title fight. Instead he took a time killer fight while waiting against another young rising star. Diamond Poirier handled business.

You can probably add Siver if he beat Cerrone and Cerrone if he beat Diaz.

If you want to go back a few years, I'm sure Dana's still mad that they didn't get that Crocop vs. Couture money
