Machida dropping to middleweight is awesome.

I am happy with the way the Pettis vs Henderson fight turned out
I am pissed I am going to miss the Jones vs Gustafsson fight

Rashad hasn't been much of a finisher lately...I have a feeling Sonnen will keep riding the high after his sub of Shogun.

The new Irish kid who was hyped for the big card last month blew out his ACL and just underwent surgery. Sucks because I was really looking forward to seeing him fight again.


Anybody think that Gustafsson has a chance again Jon Jones?

I went to college with the guy that Gustafsson KO'd in his first UFC fight. That was bittersweet.

Looks like Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn will be the next TUF coaches and will fight sometime in 2014 after the season ends.

A new episode of TUF tonight, I predict Rhonda will cry.

I want to see Mark Hunt vs Pat Berry or Roy Nelson. Meaningless but fun fight.

I want to see another Tank Abbot type fighter with HUGE punching power that slugs away and wins. They are fun to watch. He was a blast before he got fat and old and out skilled.

What do you guys think of the new ultimate Fighter series? I just started watching it again and it seems like they have changed the format up a bit since they left Spike. I still haven't decided if I like it.
Link Posted: 9/18/2013 9:21:07 PM EST
Evans beats Sonnen. Equally good wrestling and better striking.
Overeem KO or TKO Mir.
I think so, especially if he beats Condit. That's going to be an epic fight.

I was surprised to see so many of the women that have had long great careers not already being offered contracts going up against these new people with just a few fights. There is even a chick on there that is local to where I live in KY.

I'm really pleasantly surprised at some of the new match ups lately.

Matt Brown vs. Carlos Condit
Travis Browne vs. Josh Barrnett
Rory McDonald vs. Robbie Lawler
etc.

just to name a few all happening before the end of the year. Should be some solid events to close out 2013.

What else you got???

Sonnen v Evans- I see this being one of those really weird fights that goes completely off script. I think Evans should win with his stand up but I have this feeling that the fight will not go according to logic.

Mir has no chance.

Matt Brown would get destroyed by GSP. i don't think he is ready for a title shot. GSP would lay on him for 5 rounds and probably even finish him in the 5th.

If jones runs into any trouble standing, he will simply wrestle fuck the shit out of Gustaffson.
Having Bones jones on top of you, is GAME OVER!
His GNP is simply too much. Getting knocked out or submitted would suck but getting blasted with HELLBOWS from Bones has to be the worst finishing scenario in MMA.

UFC Fight Night 29 was on last night.

Rousimar Palhares won via heel hook submission, but as he's known to do, held the hold much later after Mike Pierce tapped. The UFC didn't give Palhares what would have been a $50,000 sub of the night bonus.

And just today, Dana White confirmed that Palhares will be released from the UFC. Good riddance. No room in the UFC for a guy like that.

I just got caught up on all the episodes the other day, and watched last nights episode this morning. I work Wed nights and have to download the episode the next morning.

Not sure how I feel about the whole women fighters thing. None of their fights are really interesting to watch so far, but I cant wait for Rousey and Tate to fight again in a couple months.




As for Gustafson/Jones part 2, I cant wait to see that either. Im a big Jones fan, but he looked shook in that fight. I was reading an article about it, and the write said that the fight "made him look human". Perfect way of putting it, IMO.

UFC 166: Cain vs Dos Santos III...who ya got?

Cain, Cormier, Melendez for me. I just can't get over how Cain savaged Junior last time. Jack Slack has a great article on how to beat Cain, but I don't think Junior can pull it off.

Cain all the way. I like Melendez too in his fight, but I'm siding with Nelson in his fight over Cormier. Some of the prelims look great too, this is a decent card all around.



I'm mainly interested in how Machida does in his fight on Oct 26th...I've been waiting years for him to drop down to middleweight.

I think Roy is gonna get bulled around in the clinch along the cage. If Cormier tries to make it a streetfight, I like Roy's chances better though.

Not a fan of Dana White and his stance on guns/politics at all, but that is a class move on his part. I saw the replay and Dana's comments were "he can go fight somewhere else for some other organization but he will never be back in the UFC".

If I were a betting man, I'd have to take Cain even though I dislike him. However, JDS has enough in his hands to put away just about anybody, so you can't count him out and I don't see it just as an easy win for Cain.

If Roy can hang with Cormier cardio wise, this will be an interesting fight, and Roy has to avoid being bullied against the cage like Mir was.

Link Posted: 10/18/2013 10:31:08 PM EST
Roy Nelson looks like he took his camp halfway serious this time. He's not going to win the Mr. Olympia, but he did drop some weight and looks a lot leaner/more defined.

We all know he has a chin of granite, but he's been on the wrong end of decisions. I have nothing against DC but I'd love to see Big Country throw that right hand and shut up all the haters.

Hector Lombard, if he can deal with the weight cut at 170, could be super scary.

Negative, who wants to pay to watch a washed up Tito, Rampage fight? Not many I'm sure.

Rampage thinks he's too good to train.
