Anyone catch UFC on Fox on Saturday? TUF is on tonight. Team Jones!!
That was a nasty KO last night
Dont Be Scared Homie....Pumped for this week's card!
FYI for anyone who lives in the Coconut Creek area. Rashad Evans meet and greet tomorrow.
loved seeing diaz get mauled by gsp in the missionary position for 5 rounds
I'm calling my shot now...... Wiedman beats Silva July 6th
I'm calling one too. My man Big Rig will KO GSP this novemeber.
That was the silliest thing I've ever seen.
I called the shot!!!! Way to go Weidman!!!

I agree.....GSP is in trouble. Bad matchup for him.
I like Silva but he got what was coming. WTF are doing clowning every opponent like that?
I hope you're right. I'm tired of GSP making love for 5 rounds.

And I used to be a GSP fan.
There's 2 things I know pretty well...... Football and Fighting. I'm not saying I always call the fights right...... But I'm right more often then not. J.H. hits like a freight train and is just as good a wrestler. I don't see GSP laying and praying for 5 rounds this time. I think JH gets him in the 3rd.
Can't wait for Mighty Mouse vs. Moraga should be a heck of a show. Entertaining card overall with Guilard vs Danzig and Mitrione vs Shaub. Hey and it's free like it should always be.
Rousey vs. Tate is the Co-Main
Good hopefully Weidman can silence all the people who say he doesn't deserve the belt.
He's gonna beat Weidman like a drum & then we'll finally get to see some superfights.
No he's gonna pretend to be Muhammed Ali, dance around, and get caught again. Weidman is the worst possible match up for Silva. He danced around because he knows he can't stop the takedown but he underestimated Chris's stand up game. I'm a Silva fan but nobody stays on top forever. What super fight do you think we will see? Jones? If Weidman did that to Silva I can't even imagine what Jones would do to him. GSP? He's got enough on his plate as it is with Big Rig. If silva wants to fight a welterweight that does nothing for his legacy.
I guess I'm not really in a power position right now but we'll have to wait & see who wins the rematch. I'll put some Vcash on it if I remember to ask NY to set the event up. If Weidman takes him out again, I'll tip my cap & acknowledge that he's the real deal. Silva still has like 8 fights on his contract after his Weidman rematch, so a GSP v Silva fight would probably be one of the bigger fights in UFC history. I think Silva wins, but GSP is & always will be a bigger name than Chael Sonnen, Stephan Bonner, Chris Weidman, etc. What that does for his legacy is hard to know, but that's a distant second behind how entertaining a fight that would be.
If he wants to jump straight to the Jon Jones fight I'd be stoked for that as well. I'm actually with you there, though. Sonnen didn't have too difficult a time taking Anderson down, & Jon Jones took Sonnen down like it was absolutely nothing. Jon Jones is one Tuesday at KFC away from being a Heavyweight, so he obviously has a big advantage in size & strength. If Jones comes out in round 1 & decides he's going to out wrestle Silva from the jump, it's a done deal. But if Silva can get in Jones' head like he tried to do with Weidman & get him to strike with him, then it's anybody's game. Who wins that fight I don't really care, but I think it'd be a travesty if it didn't happen. I'm sure you'd agree with me there.
I used to the idea of Silva vs Jones, but the more I think about it the less I want to see it. I just really don't want to see Silva get worked over. I hate when I see awesome fighters start to decline.It killed me to see Fedor and Wanderlei Silva fall apart. Anderson already said he would lose to Jones I think those to dont even want each other. I think the best thing for the sport would be Jon Jones becoming a Heavyweight title contender.
Just an FYI....local UFC fighter Mike Rio from Miami will be signing autographs at Ultracon in Hialeah this weekend.
IF Silva can beat Weidman.....Which I don't see happening....... A Silva vs. Jones fight would be a joke. I've been saying it for over a year now. Jones is a bigger faster version of Silva with wrestling ability. I see Silva getting hurt badly against Jones if that fight ever goes off. All this talk is mute anyway because Weidman is going to get him again. Call me crazy...... But this time he's going to sub Silva. That's my prediction.
I couldnt agree with you more. It's refreshing to see someone who thinks Weidman's legit. Your not crazy at all I can totally see Chris submitting him.
That was great. Stockton 209 homie!
I thought it would be the best fight on the card, but that Ellenberger & McDonald fight was a stinker. At least it was a free card. The interesting thing to see will be if GSP beats Hendricks. Then Rory has to decide if he wants to fight his buddy or not.
If you liked that there's more here
Yea Ellenberger McDonald was crap. Johnson looked phenominal last night, and Robbie Lawler and Melvin Guilard were good as well so all and all a good night for a free show. Chan Sung Jung vs Josie Aldo will hopefully be a war next weekend. Hopefully Hendricks beats GSP so Rory won't have to decide.
I'm not sure GSP is gonna beat Hendricks. I really think he's a bad match up for GSP. My thoughts on the fight are that GSP is going to try to do exactly the same thing Rory did to Ellenberger. Try to circle away from Hendricks' left hand and throw the jab out there every time Hendricks gets in the pocket. This has the potential to be either a 2 round knockout by JH or a 5 round UD by GSP which will be a struggle to stay awake through.
Rampage vs Tito in Bellator.
Aldo is a beast
Can't believe Bellator is doing a PPV now, and headlining the card with them. I like the fight but it's odd that they Bjorn is straying away from his vision.
Bjorn stated this around 2012
Hypocritical much! Instead of your own talent headlining the card, you bring in two guys that the UFC already built up for you, two guys who haven't performed that great in awhile, and match them up to headline your first PPV? Bellator has signed so many ex UFC fighters lately too, which is odd considering he said he wasn't really looking to do that. Bellator is good organization, but I'm in awe of the whole situation and doing a PPV now. I'd watch Rampage vs Tito on free TV, sure a bunch would, but to pay $35 for that PPV...meh.
Ahh MMA Rants :chuckle:
Can't belive Benson went out like that. Pettis is no joke.
Is Anderson Silvas career over? That was bad!
Just found this
Let's put it this way.... It SHOULD be over. He says he wants to fight again..... But I don't see why. He will never hold the belt again
EMPIRE 209 WUT
How Dillashaw Killed the King
Anyone watching 175?
Oh my god. Ronda Rousey.
