damn I feel bad for Frank Mir he matches up bad with all the top 3 contenders, as they all hit hard, and all his losses have been by TKO. I dont see how he wins this.

but will he allow it to go into the ground after he's seen Mir do it to Nog? He will just light him up standing and when Mir falls have him standup or cautiously enter his guard. Mir also had bad takedowns so I doubt he can drag him to the ground.


but hey Ive seen weirder things happen in MMA

exactly. no way would i count mir out of this fight, given his lethality on the ground.

no way does cain get out from under the way he did against lesnar. actually that was one of the weirdest recoveries i've ever seen in MMA-- looked like lesnar was doing some kind of doggie paddle while cain calmly pushed him down and off...

If Carlos Condit is healthy, he should be defending that interim belt instead of waiting for GSP. It's crap when fighters wait like that. If you're not good enough to defend the belt until the champ returns, then you aren't good enough to fight the champ anyway.

I'd like to see Ellenberger vs Condit 2 or Kampmann vs Condit 2 in the meanwhile.

My thing is, I don't get why they had to declare someone "interim champ" if they're not even gonna defend it until GSP gets back. Why not just call it a number 1 contenders bout if the winner's next match will be a title shot against the champ? No point whatsoever in declaring him champ and giving him a belt to carry around for no reason at all

I agree. Seeing how he always changes his mind on #1 contenders, I guess it's Dana's way of saying he's the official, locked in #1 contender.

Werdum/Russow for UFC 147

Anyone catch Bellator tonight? Some nice fights with a nice main event.

I haven't watched Bellator 60, but Joe Warren getting knocked out by Pat Curran was brutal, the referee stepped in super late. Speaking of, my avatar is a photoshop of when Warren got knocked out.

Here's some thoughts on the TUF 15 preliminary fights.

The live format didn't really change the fights that much for the fans, but the fighters it's a big change. The 1 round fights does change it a lot though.

The fights I thought were kind of weak.

The 2 fighters I'm looking forward to the most this season are Cristiano Marcelo who showed some insane ground skills and who's fought in PRIDE and lost to Mitsuhiro Ishida which is nothing to be ashamed of as Ishida is a really solid fighter and I think Jeremy Larsen was the other guy who showed some solid skills and got a big cut on his opponent with a big elbow from the top.

Cruz and Faber seemed pretty calm during the commentary and didn't really seem to go at each other during the fights as some of the other past fighters have during the preliminary fights.

With that being said, I hope this season delivers as the last season did.

They usually give champs more of a chance to comeback.
