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.

i don't even know why DW would come out with this unless it's a sure thing. what if condit beats gsp? gsp hasn't fought in a year and a half. it's just another thing that could cause backlash if condit wins (enter condit taking a dive conspiracies here)....

who even knows what gsp looks like? he's coming off an ACL tear, not a minor knee sprain. that's a serious injury for any athlete and gsp is a guy that relies on his strength, explosiveness and balance. then there's the whole octagon rust thing. guys that haven't fought in a year or more rarely ever look like their former self. he's never fought at MW but we're going to start talking about him taking on the champ?

what happens to diaz vs. gsp potentially? meanwhile, weidman is itching for a fight. don't want to give him silva? fine. give the dude a fight though. he's pretty much said he's ready to go and it's not like he took major damage vs. munoz.

Sure Anderson vs. St. Pierre is a super fight, but I'm not sure MMA has a reached the popularity enough to fill Cowboy Stadium.

Maybe if the UFC decides to put on a decent co-main event and a decent under card they could do a decent number, but if they put a card heavily relied on Anderson vs. St. Pierre, then I doubt they'll be able to fill Cowboy Stadium.

This was shown on Inside MMA this week and I thought this was awkwardly hilarious and that I would share it with you guys.











This is just like backyard wrestling, but with MMA.

damn i thought Ninja was retired because he could no longer get medically cleared to fight? For those who dont know he fought Sergei Khartinov at Heavy weight got KO'd and his brain swelled so it was aleading cause for him not to fight at a high level anymore.

it's a shame when two accomplished and famous MMA'ers like the rua brothers keep fighting in to relative middle age. i keep hoping that they retire and stay involved in the sport by running their own gyms / dojos / coaching, but neither has probably made remotely the kind of money that their contemporaries in other sports did. that's one large factor, anyway.
