So tired of Sonnen and the UFC's promotion of him. Guy has finished one fight in the last 7 years, yet the UFC continues to promote him because he runs his mouth like a WWE wrestler.

Sonnen's good and UFC likes him because he's willing to fight anyone, any time, on a month's notice or even a week's notice. He does studio work for them, promotion work for them etc.

And when you look at it, yeah he's lost, but he's lost to Silva and Jones which would be the same for 99.999% of the men ever to step foot in the Octagon. The fact is Sonnen can still beat just about anybody in the UFC that doesn't have a belt and more importantly he's WILLING to do so. So he gets promoted.

kid nate at SBN is saying reem should get cut or IS going to be cut.





that's ridiculous to me. overeem was dominating in all three UFC fights, with roids and without. he's exciting, he's a draw, someone always gets knocked out, and he's in a premiere division amongst an always-thin talent pool.

UFC overpaid him... it's not his fault and it's not our fault. just deal with it and renegotiate his contract, i say. or am i wrong... does anybody here really want to see him cut?

Nah he shouldn't get cut. Too much marketability still left in him and like gigantes said he is still a good fighter who would crush the majority of heavyweights. When people beat Overeem, it's still a big deal. The time to cut somebody is when people are no longer surprised to see them lose.

Plus people really, really, really, really like seeing him lose

time for a news update bump:

- Tim Kennedy vs Machida (at middleweight) scheduled for UFC Fight for the Troops 3 on Nov. 6 in Fort Cambell, Kentucky

- Belfort vs Henderson being targeted for UFC Fight Night 32 in Brazil on Nov. 9 (at light heavyweight)

- Lawler vs Rory MacDonald added to UFC 167

- Sonnen vs Wanderlei Silva is the possible UFC 167 co main event

- Bjorn Rebney says Bellator likely not re-signing Askren, but of course take that with a grain of salt. would be cool to see Askren in UFC

- Chandler vs Alvarez 2 is happening on the Ortiz-Rampage Bellator PPV card

because he cant use TRT in the States, which I think makes it impossible for him to fight Jones or Weideman unless he's given a exception ( which I doubt since he roided before) or they do the fight outside.

Lol, about the Overeem thing ... to each their own. A well-muscled Overeem is mentally & physically prepared/ready. So a healthy-minded Overeem. & no, I don't think he should get cut.

Anyway ...

Irish phenom Conor McGregor was hoping to rest his sprained knee and return to the Octagon by the end of the year, targeting Diego Brandao at UFC 168 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas.

The only problem with that scenario, however, is he doesn’t have a sprained knee.

The UFC sent McGregor to Los Angeles to have an MRI done on his knee, and the results were not what anyone had hoped for.

According to a report on Fox Sports Live on Thursday, McGregor’s MRI results showed a complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, a medial collateral ligament (MCL) strain, and a posterior horn meniscal tear.

All that damage equates to McGregor being out of action for about nine to ten months.
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/mri-rev...6585--mma.html

Complete ACL tear + MCL strain + meniscus tear. Out 10 months...

McGregor was so promising too...hope he miraculously pulls off an Adrian Peterson and comes back to form...
