I think Silva/GSP happens if GSP wins and Silva/Jones if GSP loses.

with TUF not doing so well... looks like UFC is pulling out some big guns for the show

reports are saying that Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen will be the next coaches for the ultimate fighter, and will fight in April

Could have been against someone who mattered, but the mighty Jon Jones declared otherwise...
Quote:
I'd be interested in a TUF season in the future, but it'd take the right opponent," Jones told ESPN in a recent interview. "As far as Daniel Cormier saying he wants to coach against me, he would want that wouldn't he?

"He's relatively unknown, I want to do it when the fans are aware of both guys, and when it's spunky and when it raises a lot of viewers. I'm not here to raise his stock.

Want a great season for TUF? Frank Mir Vs. Brock Lesnar III
I'm serious though ... That's like Tito Ortiz Vs. Ken Shamrock.
Hot damn I'll be all up on that shit.

im sure some higher up FX (fox owns fx) execs wanted something big for TUF, especially with how abysmal TUF is doing right now
although the friday night time slot, whether they wanna admit it or not is pretty bad.

i suppose it opens up some more matchups for the LHW division.
machida/henderson prly for sure now.
rampage/glover
shogon/gustaffson

maybe rashad faces winner of shogon/gustaffson
and machida/henderson winner will get title shot or have to face winner of rampage/glover (obviously glover winning here is the preferred scenario)

too bad pettis got injured, pettis/cerrone TUF obviously made more sense.
but cant deny more people are gonna watch jones/sonnen

I doubt anyone's trying to hide the friday night slot as a factor. It's been known as a TV graveyard for ages. Only a handful of shows every flourished on Fridays, and it's where channels used to move shows they were trying to get cancelled. The whole reason why fox even put it there was to try to get any kind of viewership to that slot given it's such a wasteland. They were reportedly ecstatic about the premier numbers even though it was one of the worst in TUF history. They may not still be happy with the dropping numbers, but it isn't as dire as people think. FX has different goals than Spike did.

What do you guys think of Brock Lesnar's MMA run?
He went 5-3 and was on a 4 winning streak with wins against frank mir, heath herring, randy courture and shane carwin.

For me, yeah he was a bit overhyped but I was always pumped up for his fights because he was always exciting too watch! I think his run was pretty impressive for someone who barely had MMA training and was a WWE superstar half of his life.
