Hopefully, Rumble goes back to the UFC. Makes me wonder how soon before the UFC poaches WSOF's talent.

so johny hendricks wants to finish as a MW once he's cleaned out WW? people seem pretty doubtful on sherdoggy, but i can picture it.

he's easily got the mass, only his height is a little suspect at 5'9." but, hey... cormier, hunt and nelson are all south of six feet in the biggest division of all... and all top fighters.

I don't see what makes him think he can clean out WW. He coasted at the end of the GSP fight and lost because of that. He had a close fight vs Condit and almost lost to Koscheck. That's not someone that should be looking at the MW division, for now.

it's true those were all close fights, but it's also true that he was still the better fighter every time. one with devastating fists that the opponent constantly has to worry about. not to mention, throw in the rest of his fights, and you see a guy who blasts other fighters with regularity.

point is, it's not a crime for a champion to win some tight decisions. not to mention, his attack is still not all that diverse... so his upside is still pretty impressive, i think.

i'm not particularly a fan of his (condit's my man), but i can indeed see him cleaning out WW, eventually.

While I think Hendricks is the best right now at WW, I don't think Condit is far behind and I wouldn't be surprised to see him win a rematch.

i would love to see carlos win a rematch. a five-rounder, say...


lawlor seems to be peaking, also. no complaints if he were to shock the establishment.

I'm on the team that wishes it was Condit getting the title fight against Hendricks. Condit WAS the last guy to technically have the belt besides GSP. I'm sure he's next in line to face the winner of that fight though
