By the time (and if) he gets to the UFC, he may well be past his prime.
We've already seen how good Fedor is. No overhype at all. His legacy has already been secured.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Sakuraba is one of my favorite fighters of all time, and I think he should have retired a few years ago. I like Mayhem and met him at the Strikeforce Houston event. He's a pretty nice guy. I would like to see a Mayhem vs. Nick Diaz fight, but right now I'm okay with the Diaz-Noons rematch. I think N...

Re: Mars Volta Chicago 08 Jermaine

http://www.themarsvolta.com/shop/Stickers%20and%20Posters :P Lithos? They are screenprints. I believe the Houston band/variant editions, and Chicago band edition are not signed or numbered. The "tan" or Artist Edition should be signed and numbered. Both Chicago posters are very impressive in person.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Toney seems like the type of guy who is too proud to tap. For his own sake I hope Couture wins by choke or GNP. If Toney doesn't land when Couture goes for the clinch or even a takedown, the fight will be over.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

The UFC, I believe, requires their fighters to fight exclusively under their promotion when they are under contract. There are other issues as well but I believe they are more financial & rights/ownership issues regarding the Fedor "brand". Dana White/UFC were quoted as saying that they would wave ...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Vitor's been out for a while and hasn't even fought in his division yet. I say you have Vitor fight Marquardt and have an immediate rematch with Chael and Silva. If Silva needs to be shelfed to recover form an injury, then I'm okay with making them TUF coaches (probably one of the only times I'm ok...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Sonnen wins 9/10 times they fight. I'd take that bet. I think Sonnen had his best chance on Saturday & he came up short. He was impressive, no doubt. But 9/10 times I see the fight ending with Anderson's hand raised due either to KO or triangle. Make no mistake, I'd be excited for a rematch (after ...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Maybe we were watching a different fight, but Sonnen rarely had good posture in Silva's guard. Which also helps explain this: What surprised me the most(other than Sonnen actually dominating Silva...) was the lack of blood coming from Silva's face and head..... Does Sonnen punch like a girl?? He su...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

Throughout the fight Sonnen was careful not to put himself in those positions and stayed out of any danger, but in the end he essentially put himself in a triangle (Kang vs. Mousasi). I thought it was awesome that Sonnen was not just trying to ride out a lay n pray decision but was looking to end t...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I agree that MMA is interesting because anything can happen. I do give it to Silva for pulling off the submission late in the fight. It was only sickening to me that Silva won 'cause personally I don't like the guy and I felt Sonnen deserved the title after dominating Silva the whole fight. This wa...

Same here. He basically beat up Anderson for 4 1/2 rounds. I'm okay with an immediate rematch.

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

We had pretty good seats. Mark Dellagrotte was a row behind us. Karo was a few rows in front. Plenty of fighters all around. There was even a fight in the crowd. Some drunk guy got his ass beat by someone sitting right next to him. Knees, punches, kicks. Intense stuff. Much better live event than t...

Re: MMA News, Rumors & Results

I'm supposed to go to the Strikeforce event in Houston on August 21st. Should be fun.
