interesting... jack slack has a lot more faith in alistair overeem than i figured. says he basically has all the tools, if only he can put them together and fight smart every fight.

Never been a fan of Overeem. He's got a few quality wins on his resume, but has lost pretty much all his fights against the elite.


And I'm not usually one to make accusations, but how roided out is this guy now? I remember he spent most of prime in Pride fighting at LHW.... now he walks around at 265+.

John Morgan
@MMAjunkieJohn
Just spoke to event source who told me Lew Polley weighed 237 pounds for his light heavyweight bout. Expecting for WSOF to release him.


32 pounds over the limit

bob sapp just got defeated for the 12th time in a row. does anybody actually remember when the guy was a threat? like... almost beat prime big nog and stuff?

i assume he is getting paid more for this than he would for pro wrestling. and also that he is probably blowing through his money as soon as it comes.

as much as i dislike Sapp's fights, promoters are the one paying him to fight, cant blame him for taking the fights

Sapp admitted in an interview that it's not worth it for him to take any damage, and that it makes more sense to quit as soon as he gets hurt.

God damn maybe I just haven't been paying attention but I didn't realize how stacked the 166 card is:

Cain vs JDS
Roy Nelson vs Daniel Cormier
Diego Sanchez vs Gilbert Melendez
Tim Boetsch vs Luke Rockhold
Nate Marquardt vs Hector Lombard

Throw in guys like John Dodson, KJ Moons and Oliveira on the prelims and this might be the best ppv of the year top to bottom

yea, amazing card... no doubt. and iím finally starting to warm up to cain - JDS III, although very nervous for cain as usual.


in other news, dana is such a doofus. he wants nick diaz to move up to 185 and fight machida, who will move down from 205. i really... really... donít see the point.


chael sonnen is applying to referee weidman - silva II? serious?

It's weird that they decided to televise the sparring session between Hall and Howard. On the main card too.

Hall is frustrating as hell to watch. He's really good but it's like he doesn't take it seriously or not, like he's just out there having fun. There's zero sense of urgency in him when he fights. Like he's always building up for a highlight knockout so he never really sets up much else

Great win for Michael Johnson earlier though

edit: Did Matt Brown just say Pyle is better than GSP right after he got knocked out in 20 seconds??
