Good main card fights in ufc 138. Etim looked impressive with that quick sub he pulled. Perosh either is an amazing grappler or diabete just has novice skills on the ground, he looked powerful the ground though. Abedi i feel underestimated alves's standup a bit, he should have took the fight on the ground quickly, if he did the result mightve been reversed. Barao is a stud, i see him fighting cruz or whoever is the champ next year.

Scks that the main event ended that way but it's the right decision to end the fight since he'll most likely get more of the same anyway. Munoz is probably one fight away for a title shot. He should fight the winner of belfort/johnson or bisping/miller.

Somehow, he has even worse cardio than Penn. He had nothing left after the first round. I don't know how he even made it through 3 rounds.

btw, is it me or frank mir doesnt know how to block himself?

Been watching his fights lately against lesnar again.. and he doesnt block himself... he wants to get that wrist control and take it from there?

I dont know if thats how jiu-jitsu fighters do it or his ego.. but thats so illogical!

He's dope!

And too bad that Rory got injured, he seems so entertaining and has much potential.

Minotauro FTW

ka-EEN. i had no idea that's how cain's first name is supposed to be pronounced until recently... even though i should really know better. but it just goes to show, if joe rogan or commentator of choice butchers a name long enough, that mistake becomes their accepted name soon enough. but how was poor joe to know?

saturday is going to be one of the most amazing matchups in MMA history. no hype, no exaggeration, no petty feuds, no false promises, no strutting and pretending, no silly blonde viking beards... nothing but two super-talented MMA prodigies STILL on their way up tangling for the championship at the most prestigious weight class in the sport.

so i'm thinking, this is one of my best shots ever at getting friends and family interested who like competitive sports but who ordinarily don't give a crap about MMA. fingers crossed, anyway...

Cain/JDS is really the perfect matchup for the first Fox fight. Heavyweights are the most interesting to the general public anyway, and these guys are both respectful guys who are well rounded fighters and don't gas out.

@dkmwise,
agree. right on.


so, any predictions for the big event? i'll start...


cain / JDS - i have a definite man crush on kaEEN for what he did to the big viking. that needs to be said and admitted on my part. i also love his gas tank and his ability to rapidly learn and improve. he's turned top wrestling and 'pillow hands' into a badass total game, something that brock lesnar can only dream about right now. at the same time, JDS is just about the coolest guy i know to come out of the brasilian fight machine. natural talent second only to the spider, or something like that. and his size, work ethic, boxing and takedown defense are so phenomenal that i actually feel scared for cain. i hate the fact that one of these guys will lose and i do love cain, but i'm going to go with JDS by TKO in the 3rd round. one of those bets where i'll be thrilled to be proven wrong, like heat versus mavs if you know what i mean.


OTHER FIGHTS - i'm too excited to care, really. but hats off to DW for breaking in to prime time networks and for broadcasting free on facebook. saturday is going to be one of the best days for the world of MMA and the public.


speaking of dana white, a super excellent article about him by the guy who covers lebron just came out. most interesting piece i've ever seen on the man- An inside look at Dana White
