UFC, Pride, K-1, Cage Rage, KOTC, doesn't matter. If it's MMA, talk about it here.

So I just found out that Dean Lister/Nathan Marquardt is confirmed for UFC 66 in December. Looks be a #1 contender-type match. I like Nate to end this thing on the feet.

Anderson Silva by total Maui Thay domination. Battered Franklin's ribs/mid section with knees and lowered the boom on his face. Franklin's nose was horribly broken and crooked after the fight.

I must say, it was a pathetic display by Franklin considering the fact that he was the #1 ranked MW in the world at the time.

No one is talking about it but Sherk-Florian was a blood-bath. Good fight, both are tough sonsof*****es.

Pride Update

Mark Hunt is off the Real Deal card. He was supposed to fight Butterbean in a boxing match. He has been replaced by former WWE wrestler Sean O'Haire.

Marvin Eastman is also off the card. He was set to face Nakamura, but the WFA threatened to sue him if he fought on the Pride card. He's going to be fighting Rampage in December for the WFA, though. Apparently, he's under contract with both orgs.

Also, it appears Fujita won't be fighting as well. I say let Fujita and Hunt throw down.

Lindland #1 at MW, huh? I'm surprised that Fihlo isn't rated higher than Franklin right now. He has every right to be.

I think Nate Marquardt will take the strap from Anderson Silva.

on the franklin fight, yes he got his ass kicked, no question, but that was just a case of him getting rocked. He was already rocked once he got clenched and it was pretty damn impressive that it took him so far to go down for good. Silva definitely deserves to be ranked higher now(i mean after that ass kicking how could he not be) but I wouldnt be suprised to see Rick beat him if they fought again.

Im not sure I want to see hughes move up like he said he might. I really dont see him beating Silva and I love Hughes so I would hate to see him move up just to get his ass kicked. Oh well, im SO ready to see FEDOR fight again. I would say flat out he would destroy anyone but i want to see if they layoff has changed him any first. That said I still expect domination from him. I generally do like UFC better than pride because I think they do a better marketing job but its just sad that so many UFC fans have never seen this guy fight. Hes a BEAST.

They've done a good job of getting the UFC and MMA out there in the mainstream in this country, but they are waaay over-doing it now. Too much promotion, too many commercials. I mean, why the fu*k are they riddling the PPVs with commercials? We paid 40 dollars to watch that show. Put that sh!t on the Spike shows.

And start signing some better fighters for crying out loud. Some guys that can step in and throw down for titles RIGHT NOW (like Anderson Silva). They've done a great job of signing young talent both off the street and through the reality show, but they need to be bringing in the Heath Herrings and Rampage Jacksons of the world.

And bring back Matt Lindland, god damnit.

UFC's good at marketing to the ignorant, redneck, wwf watching american fans. That's the audience they go for cause that audience doesn't care if a fighter is holding up a xyience soft drink can win or lose, and only thanks his sponsors and doesn't even give any insight, look at nascar. I only watch it cause they got some really good fighters.

But day by day I start realizing how Pride is 100% better than UFC. I too was ignorant I guess.

That said, I'm really upset that Fujita and Mark Hunt aernt on the card anymore. Their fights were two of the ones I was looking forward to the most.

I got the UFC 64 free cause it started screwing up on my PPV and I called directv and I guess it was happening to everyone and they gave it to me for free. So I don't mind paying for Pride and getting UFC free. Not at all. The way it should be.

The greatest accomplishment of Fujita's career is punching Fedor.

Once.
