    The TUF 10 heavyweight cast is actually a pretty decent group. My pick to win it all is Roy Nelson, the former IFL heavyweight champion...you may have seen him fight and lose to Andrei Arlovski on CBS last year. There are guys with NFL backgrounds including Marcus Jones who's turned in to a...

    I've been out of this thread for awhile due to being very busy...a computer crash, some illness and just a whole bunch going on. I want to hit on a few things. 1. You can watch PPV's legally online via Yahoo and I think even UFC.com. In fact, UFC had a deal where if you ordered the PPV by...

    Yes, I know that the point is to have a size advantage when you're in the cage. But, Swick's mentality is screw it, I'll fight guys who are bigger than me, I don't care...that's why he doesn't see the sense in cutting so much weight when he himself is just willing to go in against the bigger...

    The interview with Swick went pretty well. We actually touched on something discussed in this thread. We talked about guys who cut 30 pounds to make a certain wait, like Thiago Alves walks around at 199 and cuts to 170 for his fights. Swick doesn't see the sense in cutting 30 pounds, he thinks...

    Here's the thing with Silva/GSP. Even if you agree that they'll fight at say 180 pounds making silva cut 5 more for the fight. It really won't matter because by the time of the fight Silva will be back at 215 and GSP will probably only be at just a little over 185 (though he says if he fights...

    Good news for fans of MMA. Strikeforce has purchased select assets of EliteXC and as a result, MMA is returning to both Showtime and CBS with the first show on Showtime coming on April 11. This is good news, because unlike say, Affliction, Strikeforce is actually run by people who know how to...

    GSP's performance last night was nothing short of amazing. I've always thought that Anderson Silva would be able to beat GSP if they fought, last night made me waver in that to the degree that now I wouldn't call it a certainty, GSP is just so good that I think if anyone could give up as much...

    I'm nearly crawling out of my skin with excitement for UFC 94 tonight. I think Penn-St. Pierre could end up going down as one of those all-time great fights.

    Wow, this thread has been quiet for quite some time. I've personally been very busy and am only going to get busier as the UFC decides to run a show about once every 20 minutes or so. My latest project is an audio show called MMA Sunday done every sunday at 9:00 PM ET. Our first show was...

    more on the licensing agreement UFC wanted those guys to sign If what Dan Lambert of ATT says is true, and I have no reason to think that it isn't, I really don't see the UFC's request as all that unreasonable. 1. It would only be for the video game and wouldn't prevent guys from getting...

    Randy's suspension is until Jan. 15 with no contact until Dec. 31. Penn will fight GSP on Jan. 31. When he fight's Florian depends entirely on what happens in the GSP fight. Figure he comes through just fine with no injuries he could fight Florian in May. That's the same turn-around he had...

    I'm not sure what will get my vote for fight of the year. I am sure that Paulo Filho Vs. Chael Sonnen at WEC 36 will get my vote for worst fight of the year. Filho committed career suicide on this night. 1. He missed weight for a title fight in which he was the champion. 2. He did...

    A TUF season based around Kimbo Slice would probably do the best ratings for the show since season 1 when the show benefitted from being on right after WWE Monday Night Raw. A TUF season based around women and featuring Gina Carano would also do big numbers and would probably inject some life in...

    Watching UFC 90 last night, I came to understand completely why Anderson Silva would consider retiring at the age of 35 or after he sees 5 more fights. Even before the injury to Cote, he was posing no serious threat to Silva. Sure, it was the first time in Silva's UFC career that the fight...

    Andres, the argument for Ken Shamrock killing the promotion is that if he doesn't get cut the day of the fight, then Petruzelli doesn't need to be his replacement and isn't going to be able to make those comments 2 days later on the radio. Also, the reason Shamrock got cut is that he was doing...

    Andres, here is Seth Petruzelli's actual quote. Now, later Petruzelli would back track and claim that EliteXC offered him a knockout bonus in the fight with Kimbo, but that's not what the initial quote suggested. Offering a fighter a knockout bonus isn't illegal and is common practice, even...

    Mikah, I was not surprised that Kimbo got beat. As far as the how, hey, I think anything can happen in a fight so when anything happens, I'm not surprised. Also, 9,000 people isn't necessarily a bad crowd. I would want to know things like how many people the venue is scaled to hold for an...

    One other note. Dave Meltzer, who was in attendance at the show, reported that Petruzelli wasn't the only possibility for a replacement. The other man who was willing to step in if Kimbo had agreed to it and had the commission allowed it? Some guy named Frank Shamrock. You may have heard...

    Well, I really don't need much more time to digest what happened on Saturday. 1. Credit to both Slice and Petruzelli for agreeing to fight one another. Neither was in a real good position having trained for very different oponents before agreeing to the fight in literally maybe an hour before...
