Hmmm, so now there's 2 divisions where the title picture is quite muddled - HW and MW. The HW division continues to be all kinds of ****ed up.

This could have been an awesome card if Overeem wasn't retarded...

I don't disagree. But just natural frustration from all these close decisions.

KZ Tweeted he wanted to fight Aldo.

Hopefully they set up that fight next which could be a fun fight, but Aldo would win it too.

Aldo won the fight clearly even though Rogan tried to sell the fight being really close and it wasn't really as close as he made it out to be.

jackass, what would it actually take for you to learn something in this sport? if ovie was in a super-intense fight and suddenly shattered in to thousand pieces of crystal, would you finally get the memo that he's a fragile gem? or would it take additional pieces? a million shards of crystal, maybe?


and you can keep doing your little thing and nitpick all the offending statements you find all over the world if you feel like it. good for you if it makes you feel better. but dude, seriously... are you ever going to get the memo about your particular HW mancrush? i mean.... ever??


do you REALLY think your guy is going to show JDS something? really??


i would honestly feel bad for you at this point, but you've been such an obnoxious blowhard across this whole thread that there's not much reason left for me to be cordial at this point.

in MMA that's considered an attempt to break someone. it's all part of the game and no disrespect meant towards the opponent.


success against the opponent is just the bullshit way that we tend to measure this game.


we're all cool dudes here IMO... elite members of the ISH MMA community. but yea... i'll shut up again for a good long while....

If this fight happens I'll be torn. I love both these guys...

What are you blabbering about? He takes 9 clean shots from a 300 pound HW to go out and he's a fragile gem? Every fighter is a 'fragile gem' if they get hit in the wrong spot. Some are better at recovering than others. Maybe Overeem sucks at it, but maybe he never should have been in that position in the first place. You can't get that careless against a dangerous opponent (he shouldn't have done it against Lesnar either).

Is it always going to be these continuous, vengeful comments when someone disagrees with you? You're like a little kid in this manner. How many asinine rants can you have? A mancrush because I'm a fan of a particular fighter? Why are you singling him out? Did it ever occur to you that maybe I've been defending him more than others because he's been one of the more criticized fighters out there for years? I'm a fan of many fighters: Alvarez, Pettis, GSP, and Jim Miller to name a few.

You're boasting about the guy who got his ass beat for an entire fight? That's the guy you have overwhelming confidence in? Whatever floats your boat. I never said Overeem would destroy JDS. I always had that fight as damn near even (the last time I talked about it, I think I might even have given the edge to JDS due to cardio).

You're delusional, but I'm guessing that won't sink in since you can't seem to pull your head out of your ass. You celebrate Overeem's loss like a dickhead, but I'm the obnoxious blowhard? When the hell have you started being cordial with me? You've been a dickhead for a while and I'm not exactly sure why. You're not going to hurt my feelings if you throw in some bad words. If you want to hold some sort of petty grudge, then that's your problem.

I know what I say will matter little since you seem to always see what you want to see. So whatever, continue on your little, petty grudge. If you want to take out some anger issues or whatever on me, then fine, my feelings won't get hurt so have at it.

Sounds like Bigfoot may get a rematch with Velasquez. If so, then I hope Cain doesn't go the cheap cut stoppage route again (I know it wasn't a cut stoppage in that fight, but he was going for it).

Pettis says he wants to face Aldo next.

Frankie should move back up to 155 where his speed advantage is great, after losing @145 there's nothing really left for him go back up to 155 since size was never his biggest issue, his issue is he gets hit so damn often hes gonna have serious brain damage if he keeps taking this amount of powerful shots.

I was wrong both on the Overeem/Evans picks both imo had poor gameplans but man I was cheering for Bigfoot I got a soft spot for him I could imagine all the crap he would have taken his whole life people looking/making fun of him cause of that disease probably the highlight of him career beating prime Reem rather than past prime Fedor. Lil Nog a bit to class for Evans on the feet in a rather boring fight like I predicted.

Maia did to Fitch what Fitch does to everyone i'm glad Fitch knows how it feels I can't stand the dudes fighting style the more he losses the happier i get. But in saying that huge props to Fitch for not quiting on the ground a lot of people would have had Damian Maia been on there back.

Joe B vs Uncle Creepy (UFC needs to drop that name its not good for anyone), was fairly fun fight Joe B just a bit more explosive and better striker.

AND WTF IS THE UFC THINKING PUTTING LYOTO VS HENDO NOT AS THE MAIN FOR A WOMENS FIGHT seriously thats even worse than Chael being gifted a title shot vs Bones simply pathetic.

No kidding.

Does this mean that Machida-Hendo will only be 3 rounds since it's not a "main event"? That really limits its potential and is kinda silly given that the Rousey fight isn't going anywhere near 5 rounds.

Does anyone else think Yves Edwards won his fight 2 rounds to 1 I was a bit suprised when the other guy had his hand raised.
