Damn, Mir Vs Velasquez is the last thing Frank needs right now..... I mean, It showed you in the past that he had trouble fighting against guys that are wrestlers/ground & pound type of fighter and also rely on their strength.
I mean, Ian Freeman beat the crap out of him, the match stopped cuz he could barely stand... And For Carwin, Lesnar, Vera & Cruz they ALL GROUND & POUNDED HIM.......
But for Vera & Carwin not so much Vera knee'd him and Shane caught him with an uppercut..

I mean, Mir's weaknesses are fighters that wants the fight to go to the ground.. I mean really, just look at his losses back then..

I know that Frank is smart and he said that he learned from his mistakes from the past, he said that Ground & Pound is a thing that he doesn't enjoy anymore... so we'll see, and I hope that his ego wont get the best of him..

UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta broke the news early Friday morning via his personal Twitter account.

Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos will likely attempt his first title defense against Alistair Overeem on May 26 in Las Vegas.

In addition, Fertitta confirmed the UFC is working to pair former heavyweight champions Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez on an undisclosed date, and light heavyweights Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz are expected to meet a third time.

According to UFC officials, none of the bouts has been formally signed.

from espn.com

Reem/JDS date depends on how Alistair's court case goes

Weak fight for Hendricks. After beating Fitch, he should be getting something better than Kos. This only makes sense if Condit is 100% for sure waiting for GSP and not taking another fight.

i think condit is gonna wait for gsp
so no condit,gsp. no point in fighting fitch again. only really leaves koscheck. although i thought maybe kos or hendricks would fight ellenberger if he beats sanchez. but im guessing kos/hendricks made most sense to both fighters and the ufc.
i suppose fitch will get the the winner of sanchez/ellenberger?

I doubt it. These fights are setting up as main ones in the title picture. I doubt the UFC wants Koscheck near a title shot again so soon. And if Fitch didn't get one all that time during his win streak, I don't think they're in a hurry to get him back in the title picture. Also, imagine if Fitch won that and Kos beat Hendricks. Two guys who will never agree to fight each other and the UFC probably doesn't want to give a title shot to anyways.

If Rory MacDonald wins his next fight, they really need to step up his competition and get him in the mix.

i think rory will get their soon enough, but i think he has to win his next fight and then another before he gets a top 5 fight

but in regards to kos/fitch, there is rumblings that they might be okay with fighting each other now, since koscheck left his old camp, and they might have even had a bad falling out. (koscheck wont even mention his old camp by name).

i think if rory wins he'll fight the winner of kampman/alves

I know im late about this, but i got to say im very disappointed with diaz. He knows he's going to get tested for marijuana, why smoke it? He most likely wasnt high when he fought, and the cannabis probably remained in his system days before fight day.

The only reason that it should be tested though is for the safety of the fighter, since it would make a fighter sluggish and uncoordinated. It shouldnt be considered as a PED or as an unfair advantage. So the only logical testing should be before the fight. That said, it's enforced upon the fighters to remain drug free. It's part of their job to stay away from it.

It sucks that he is suspended since i want to see the rematch. But he deserves to be suspended. Well, kinda think of it.... it wouldnt really matter if he really was serious about retiring.

from what i've read, there's still some slight possibility of diaz wiggling out of this. he does have his doctor's prescription for the weed and a period of time to present his case to the board before any decision is made.

even worst-case scenerio, he's only 28, DW still likes him, and he might actually learn from all this a little bit. so barring the unknown, he should be back at some point... not beyond his peak.

plus there's always nate.

Nick is becoming too much of a draw for Dana White not to give him another chance. He's probably fed up with all the antics but a villain like Diaz is good for business. Once whatever suspension he gets is up, it'll be business as usual with Diaz like it was with Sonnen.
