i never liked ninja that much, filho on the other hand was probably the best middleweight in the world before his mess and breakdown in the wec. filho's story may be one of the saddest stories in sports history, not just in mma history. he had the potential to be the greatest middleweight in the history of mma, but he ruined it by not looking for help at the right time. he just kept abusing drugs and pain killers and that brought him down to the point of deep depression and contemplating suicide. sad, sad story. hopefully one day he'll come clean on all of this.

UFC 151 cancellation was at least a $40 million hit for all parties involved:

not looking forward to belfort being destroyed. how's that going to repair any of the damage? and supreme a-hole dana white says that machida won't get the next shot 'as a form of punishment.' so... what, then? jones gets another rematch against someone he's already destroyed, or is reluctantly forced to take on another outclassed middleweight, i.e. sonnen?

dude cannot possibly move to heavyweight fast enough for me.

John Makdessi vs. Sam Stout at UFC 154.

Jorgen Kruth who was scheduled to fight Fabio Maldonado has decided to retire and Cyrille Diabate will step in as a replacement for Kruth against Maldonado at UFC 154.

Hector Lombard vs. Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6.

This World Series of Fighting has potential to be really good. Why is no one talking about it? They have Miguel Torres, Ronnys Torres, Gesias Cavalcante, Bobby Lashley, Gerald Harris, Josh Burkman and will be airing their first card on NBC Sports.

Also TPF 14 is streaming right now on Sherdog. TPF usually puts on good cards, I've only seen the Andre Fili vs. Ricky Wallace fight and Fili looked like a really solid fighter. Marcos Rosales has done a bad job referring the fights according to everyone on the Sherdog message board and to the commentators reactions. Brad McDonald vs. Art Aciniega is about to start now. Still 2 title fights to go, Georgi Karakhanyan vs. Micah Miller for the featherweight title and Casey Olson vs. Ian Loveland for the bantamweight title. both title fights could be really, really good.

After Cormier beat up Barnett who no one thought he could beat, he moved up big in the heavyweight rankings and I think he has a really big chance of beating Mir.

And Arlovski would be one of the greatest HW's of all time if his chin wasn't made of glass.

^ agreed to both those last posts. cormier is tough as nails to take down so i don't see how mir gets that one to the ground. mir's clinch game just isn't great.

not really, mir was favored vs. nog. cormier is just a bad matchup, style wise. mir typically struggles vs. good wrestlers and that's exactly what cormier is. he has great TD defense and great top control.

mir can always grab a limb off his back but i just can't see it...
