The Best Day Ever (For Everyone but Fighters)

Could anyone, even the most delusional MMA conspirists, ever imagine the twists and turns that August 23, 2012 (8/23/2012) would bring to the MMA world? With the LHW championship fight off the card, leading to the (gasp!) cancellation of the entire card, with the added subtext of a refusal to fight by the LHW champ on 8 days notice, followed by the refusal of the #1 contender to fight for the belt at the next PPV, followed by the too-late offer of the 185 champ to fight and save the card, how can anyone other than the fighters affected by the cancellation complain?

This debacle has turned into a field day for MMA pundits and fans to extrapolate. One only hopes the UFC does the right thing and pay the fighters who were ready to fight the same way they do when a card changes at the last minute.
