re: the jones debate,
IMO he shouldn't be vilified for turning down sonnen (neither should he be thanked), but he desperately needs to STFU before he keeps hemorrhaging fans. his publicist quit before the 151 blowup and he needs a replacement, yesterday. if he could simply take a vacation from twitter he would avoid probably 75% of the damage right there. but he just keeps putting his foot in his mouth over and over again... every day or two he's posted some new stupid shit that someone, somewhere should have prevented at all costs.

the main thing that matters to me is whether this is good or bad for MMA and the UFC. on the one hand, it makes DFW, the UFC and jones look like real jackasses. on the other hand, if that leads to more press, more interest and more buy-ins, then in the end that's a good thing, no?

or maybe jones and DFW could take etiquette lessons from GSP...... "george's six-day seminar on how to keep your inner child pacified and silent."

its allowed as long as the ref declares open guard and gives permission to start kicking on the other dude, basically AA didnt check before he started bashing on Timeh, dumb rule, they need to change it. Happened to Roger Hureta in the last One FC fight same scenario but this time it was allowed, Huerta was KOTFO

Who in the hell came up with that rule? If you drop a guy, you want to rush in and finish him off, not stop and wait for the ref to give the OK.

silva is so much bigger than GSP, who's coming off a terrible injury, that i have very little desire to see them fight. i've never seen that matchup as a fair fight.

not that the fans would care, and i guess that's all that matters at this point. so bring it on. money to the right pockets...

Silva vs. St. Pierre is a big fight, but I'm not sure the UFC is popular enough to fill Cowboy Stadium.
