I guess he should make for some good TV at least. Carwin isn't exactly brimming with charisma and I'd be very surprised if we ever see him in a title fight again.

I assume no other higher profile guys wanted to do it.

TUF has fallen off drastically, and the talent coming off the show is a shadow of what it once was.

i was thinking about this the other day. with the sport becoming more popular, why do you think that is? do the talented upcoming guys just get signed behind the scenes? diaz and bader seem like the last impactful major players. you could throw roy in there. and maybe chiesa and pearson but look at who they're fighting. it just doesn't seem like we're getting those legends and gateholders coming through like the early days.

I haven't been following MMA as long as many here, but it does seem like the pool of available talent has shrunk somewhat. Not to mention, even the early winners of TUF did not exactly go on to become MMA legends.

What it probably comes down to is the fact that if you're kickass enough to make the UFC, you 'll tend to make it on your own merits through the various other fight networks, and not because you looked good in the UFC beauty contest. Or something like that. But from the articles I recall on BE, MMF, MMJ, etc, they tend to paint a similar picture.

Any opinion on the idea of JDS training hard in orthodox boxing and taking on the Klitschkos at some point? Maybe not as a likely winner, but as a strong challenger, at the least?

Cain is my favorite MMA fighter and I have huge respect for AO's game, but I'm not sure either will be able to bother the incredible punching machine known as JDS. Just IMO, of course....

You really want this question answered dont you?

I'll say yes just because everyone else tells you no.

It wasn't a yes or no question, but thanks for your insightful analysis of the situation.

okay, good for you. you answered the second part of the question that i threw out there for people who had nothing interesting to say but who felt like saying "yes" or "no" anyway.

i guess the first part was just too confusing. that's too bad. that was the part where i asked for 'any opinion' on the matter. any interesting opinion on the matter would likely sketch out where JDS might be strong and where he might have a problem in pro boxing. etc, etc... i.e., any interesting insight of any kind.

if you need an analogy to help you understand, consider that part the essay question in HS or college where you actually try to represent your opinion on a matter. not that i was looking for anything deep-- just something mildly interesting would have been fine.
