This is not a post a blame. This is a post of thanks. Thanks to all the fighters who offered to help with this 151 fiasco. So here it is:
Thank you to Vitor Belfort. Good ole, Vitor, who stepped up on a months notice to fight in a weight class he hasn't fought at since 2007. May the gods be with you.
Thank you to Chael Sonnen, who, despite all his B.S., offered to take a fight on nine days notice against a guy who is seen by many to be to be 2# pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Good luck against Forrest.
Thank you Chris Weidman. Thank you for trying, and for risking the almost sure title shot you have waiting for at your natural weight of 185.
Thanks to Anderson Silva, who offered to fight another light-heavyweight at 151, although I'm not sure why he doesn't want to just fight Weidman.
And lastly, thank you to the UFC, for doing the right thing and paying their under-card fighters.
