Lindland and Horn should make up their minds

Here's an interesting opinion peice from Inside Fighting that talks about the issues in determining rankings for fighters outside the major organizations like Pride and UFC. Matt Lindland is a perfect example of this, someone who on any given day could beat the shit out of any given fighter in any given weight class. But as far as I'm concerned, that's where his problem is : the bitch won't stay put. How are you supposed to establish yourself as a dominant fighter in your weight class when you have a reputation for fighting across a few?

BJ Penn suffers from the same problem, which I call 'stupidity'. I remember him yapping about going after the belts in three weight divisions. Not one. Not two. But three. The result: Dude doesn't have anything around his waist but a big tubby tire of fat from jumping classes.

The article also goes into details on the Lindland/Horn fight which happened last weekend but is gonna be on PPV next weekend. I have to tell you, nothing's more appealing than paying good money to watch a fight that's already happened. It's like paying money to ride in a time machine, except it's fucking lame.
