|MW Contenders list (6) | Posted on July 8, 2012, 10:35 a.m.|
|It'll probably be Lombard if he beats Boetsch|
I've got Bisping beating Belcher if that fight happens and Weidman outwrestling Munoz to a decision. Weidman really needs time with his striking before he'd be any kind of threat to Anderson though
|Can someone clarify the Stun Gun stoppage for me? (6) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 11:29 p.m.|

According to Joe Silva, Dong Hyun Kim injured his ribs on the way down. #UFC148
|UFC 148 discussion topic. (448) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 7:56 p.m.|
Is that seriously Linkin Park?
Machida had an LP song too, either they really like Linkin Park or it's the default band they choose when a fighter just doesn't care what they come out to
|On the real, what happens to Silva if he loses? (12) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 9:54 a.m.|
|Probably an instant rematch. Doesn't help that there aren't many other viable contenders at the moment outside of maaaybe Munoz if he beats Weidman(which is not a sure thing by any means), and Munoz/Sonnen wouldn't do the business Silva/Sonnen III would, so...
|Calling it now. Anderson Silva KO's Sonnen off his back. (2) | Posted on July 5, 2012, 11:58 a.m.|

|Bisping calls out Brian Stann and Alan Belcher for UFC 152 (18) | Posted on July 4, 2012, 10:51 p.m.|
|Fat Thugger Da Boss posted...|
Wow when did Belcher get so popular at this board.
Belcher has some steam from derailing Palhares' hype train. I think people kinda forget that despite their opinion of the decision, though, that Akiyama outlanded him in head strikes. If they fight I think Bisping boxes up Belcher to an easy decision...Belcher would need to land something pretty damn significant, Bisping easily has the better boxing of the two.
|What are the chances Cody McKenzie wins via guillotine? (2) | Posted on July 4, 2012, 9:25 p.m.|

|Bisping calls out Brian Stann and Alan Belcher for UFC 152 (11) | Posted on July 4, 2012, 8:45 p.m.|
|I'll take Bisping over either one by decision|
Faced with a choice I would rather see Belcher's momentum derailed

|Dana on Frank Shamrock in the UFC HoF: "the most irrelevant dude on the planet" (4) | Posted on July 2, 2012, 1:40 p.m.|
|I don't agree with what Dana is saying, but Frank's been trashing Dana for years now...of course he isn't going to be inducted in the HOF. If he and Dana ever made nice it would probably happen.
|C/D: Strikeforce purposely gave Nick Diaz fights that went in his favor (11) | Posted on July 1, 2012, 9:35 p.m.|
|Only guy he shoulda fought but Strikeforce didn't wanna push it was Jay Hieron. Jay's contract ran out and he wanted a shot at Diaz but I guess they weren't willing to promise him one, so he bolted to Bellator

|I'm racist because I don't like Cain Velasquez. (18) | Posted on July 1, 2012, 1:35 p.m.|
The problem with the Brown Pride tattoo is that he used it to express pride in being Mexican. If you're going to be proud of something stupid like that, at least don't be an idiot about it.
Who do you think deserves to be ranked above him, exactly? Aside from JDS or Overeem.
|joe stevenson got subbed by the gay porn guy (8) | Posted on July 1, 2012, 12:39 p.m.|
|Bobby complained about the decision but I don't remember there being any controversy about the decision except from him. Fight should've ended with the tap and iirc JZ earned every round|
Also gay porn guy has now beaten Jamie Varner and Stevenson, not bad
|I'm racist because I don't like Cain Velasquez. (11) | Posted on July 1, 2012, 12:28 p.m.|
|Aw, c'mon Kadd. He's a HW with good cardio, decent(if over emphasized) standup, great wrestling and usually sets a relentless pace. He's one of my favorites in the class|
His tattoo isn't great but it's still better than that damn Kim Jong Il tat that Belcher sports
|Shogun clarifies on why he's ducking Glover Teixeira (18) | Posted on June 30, 2012, 11:34 p.m.|
Shogun wants easy fights. I bet he thought Hendo wouldn't be a problem given his age, and ended getting his face beaten to a pulp. I hope Vera pulls off the win somehow.
...Hendo had just beaten Fedor, I'm pretty sure Shogun knew he wasn't gonna be easy pickings
I still don't understand Dana's way of handling all this. He basically calls out Shogun for ducking but then gives him the main event on a FOX card. Makes no sense.
|Sonnen vs Silva..predictions? -pick one and why- (20) | Posted on June 29, 2012, 10:48 p.m.|
|I've got Silva by TKO. I'm assuming the injury hampered his ability to defend takedowns that well and he'll come in healed up and better prepared to deal with Sonnen's takedowns. I don't think he'll be able to stop them completely, though.|
However, if it goes like the first fight and Chael takes him down effortlessly time and time again, I think his training with the higher level grapplers will pay dividends and he'll get a decision
Hoping for Silva by KO/TKO though
|Watching every Anderson Silva UFC fight to get me pumped for 148 (9) | Posted on June 29, 2012, 1:21 a.m.|
I'm going to watch all his fights...including Leites and Maia. Gah that'll suck.
Just shut the Maia one off after three rounds and pretend it was not a five round fight, it doesn't really start to suck until the championship rounds

|Any chance of UFC 149 being a free event now? (5) | Posted on June 18, 2012, 12:57 p.m.|
|No, events they broadcast on free networks are locked in with contracts, I believe. They can't just make one free because injuries hamper it

I dont care what anybody says, i always thought Charles Bennet had skill.
I dunno about good sub defense...17 of his losses are by sub. He's never been good on the ground
He's a funny character but apparently completely nuts too, so he squandered any real talent he had

|can anyone explain how Pierce had a fourth split in a row? (4) | Posted on June 10, 2012, 1:17 p.m.|
|The only thing I can think of is that the judge somehow got the fighters mixed up. Pierce won, no doubt. I think Hendricks rightfully beat him, but he shoulda got the decision over Kos.
|So was MM/McCall card decent? (13) | Posted on June 10, 2012, 11:06 a.m.|
|Dont forget the suspect attendance for the Orlando Magic, Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers of the NHL and Tampa Bay Rays of the MLB and you have Florida as not a good market for sports in general (I dont follow the Dolphins/Buccaneers of the NFL so I dont know how they do)|
Dolphins/Bucs were both ranked very low with stadium attendance in the NFL, near the bottom for 2011 based on a chart I just looked at. Even when the Miami Hurricanes were doing really well in the early 2000s their attendance was not stellar, iirc

|I'm not even sure why Dana would come out and say it...he must really want to build hype around Teixera. Why would you come out and accuse one of your own fighters of ducking, especially one you just scheduled for a main event on a FOX card and one you're likely gonna pencil in for Brazilian TUF?

I think I'd much, much rather watch Fitch. I'm not fond of Marquardt, but Woodley makes watching paint dry seem very exciting...so I'm left to reluctantly hope Marquardt wins.
