If he loses, so be it. He was doing the UFC a favour and taking a huge fight like this on short notice is tough.

If he wins, he's in line for some big things again in his career.

Exactly, and Tito fought Rashad very close before, would have won if they didn't take a point away.

And if Tito made $400,000 last fight, imagine what he'll make helping the UFC out on short notice and being the headliner of the card.

Well, if he didn't keep grabbing the fence, then he probably would have lost.

They should have moved to 5 judges, not 5 rounds. Adding 2 more judges gives two more viewpoints on the fight, 2 more judges that have to be paid off (making it harder), and would decrease the penalty of 1 judge just scoring the fight completely wrong (probably paid off).

UFC 136 in Houston in October

edgar/maynard III
aldo/florian
stann/sonnen
santiago/maia
lauzon/guillard

pretty good,
i thought guillard would have gotten someone higher up in the lightweight chain of fighters
too bad mitrione vs kongo didnt make it onto this card instead of ufc 137

Jon Jones Rampage stare down









In case you didn know Jon Jones does a "Im so mad and focused im not even gonna look at you face"stare down.He always looks at another direction so Rampage had some fun with it

http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images...jpg?1296905907

None of that for Rampage

that's pretty damn funny.

rampage looks so much beefier that he could break bones in half. but bones' 1000-yard stare looks like it could melt rampage into a little pile of epsom salts.

and, man... what a height advantage.

someone posted this podcast at sherdog. it's eddie goldman from "no holds barred" talking about the state of MMA and his opinion on the fedor-hendo fight:
http://nhbnews.podomatic.com/entry/2...12_50_08-07_00

10:30- he gets to the fedor fight, talks about his legacy, and gives his opinion on herb dean's stoppage.

22:00- it starts to get really interesting here. he gives evidence that suggests that zuffa lied when it claimed showtime made the overeem - silva fight impossible in october. he goes on to suggest that this is yet another case of dana white smacking someone down when they stand up to him, among other things.

then he talks about how the state of the UFC is more fragile than it seems, which ties in to some other articles coming out recently saying similar things.

one more angry rant from dana white coming up, i guess. :P

I don't agree with all of his points regarding Fedor. Hendo has a recent loss to Jake Shields, who lost to GSP. And, I don't agree with his thinking that MMA is turning into wild brawls. Some guys go with that style because they like it and/or they think it's more appealing to the fans, but most don't. As far as saying that Zuffa lied about Showtime, who knows? I have to say that Dana is a huge dick if he cut Overeem for those reasons. How is the state of the UFC more fragile than it seems? I didn't really see him state a case for that.

All Golden Glory fighters have been cut by Zuffa.Overeem,V Overeem,Eniemo and Coenon.

Something is going on why cut Eniemo and Coenon too?Golden Glory pissed off Zuffa is pretty much what is.

Overeem has a scheduled mma fight in October.
