Random question.

If a champion gets DQ'd in a championship fight, does he lose the belt?

Has this ever happened?

How crazy would it be if Yushin got upkicked again and won the title?

agreed, totally. might not be much of a fight by regular standards, but then, watching a huge bag of gas get punctured can be a good show in its own special way.

a loss is a loss... so normally, yes.

as to having happened, my sense is to look to boxing more than MMA for that...

That would leave TNA as the only combat sports brand left on Spike. They might have to find another MMA brand to replace, or its rating might drop hard.





interesting.

that's right. let's see a THIRD boring / irrelevant fight, just to make the trilogy complete.

Anyone has info on ROF 41 - Bragging Rights?
Guy from my city has a fight there against some Jason "The Dragon" Lee. He won a reality show here ("Road to the ring of fire") and got to fight in ROF...

What?Why would you want to base it off of 134? The first show on FOX is in October.

yup

Mitrione has fast hands but not to much power although sometimes speed=power.I just think Kongo is a better overall fighter and will probably put him up against the cage and beat him up.

I favor Kongo but wouldnt be shocked if mitrione won by UD

question- when is the next big fight coming up?

second question- what are your thoughts on the matter?

...

me? i've been watching some overeem fights the last couple days... stuff from when he was a light heavyweight to when he became a human tank.

one thing i had totally forgotten was how much he was able to move around as a LH.

going from the werdum fight to, say, the kharitonov 2007 fight, it's quite dramatic, the difference in his overall style. not trying to say 'better' or 'worse'... just different.

many of overeem's fights are on youtube for the moment. that may not last long, however...

thanks... those look pretty good. the jones fight is definitely the most interesting one for me. the more i learn about his personality, the more he seems like my kind of guy. (he's pretty-much all deeds and little talk)

also, i don't think he has the build to go heavyweight. at the very least, not until they create a bridge division between 205 and 265. rather, i'd love it if he could somehow get together with silva...
