I'm cool with that. Machida is a legit contender and still has a decent amount of time to get ready for this.

And it gets way better, Vitor's out no TRT = no fight. Machida will try to revenge his friend Anderson. Weidman is good though. Will be a great competitive fight. Machida will potshot Wiedman to a Unanimous Descision.

sketchy is right.

the logical substitute was a huge ring of syringes and horse testicles encircling weidman. his goal would have been to punch his way out in 60 seconds.

from a distance, nobody would have been able to tell the difference between that and belfort.

my personal karate / wrestling background is not deep, and it happened a long time ago, but my working theory on this kind of stuff is basically this:

when you detect some quick movement coming, either crowd the opponent or skip back like your ass is on fire. i.e., never, EVER remain in the pocket unless you're exactly sure what move is coming and how to counter it. (and how many ppl can do that 100% ?)

but... pretty obvious, right? which means that the real key is not evasive action, but paying attention to the opponent. a principle which is still underestimated across MMA and all of sports, IMO.

They did a horrible job promoting that FN. Didn't even know it was on until later that day when it was already over. Anyone watch Bellator? The event pretty much sucked until the end, but they got the match up they were desperately hoping for. None of the fighters on there looked good at all.

the mauler's coming for that belt. rematch! unfortunately, i don't think he has the power outside a flash KO, to put jones down. i do think he can pepper him for five rounds and win a decision though.
