The next ppv is boring, who cares about those Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. I can't wait for ufc 146 though with Dos Santos vs Overeem and Mir vs Cain. That will be a sick event.
What? Seriously, Jones vs. Evans is one of the most anticipated MMA fights in a while. I'm usually a fan of the lighter weight classes of Fly, Bantam, Feather and Lightweights or Brazilian fighters and even I'm looking forward to Jones vs. Evans.
If Mir's fighting Velasquez, then poor dude, he's probably getting another title fight, since Velasquez is going to TKO him.
I'm curious to see who Dos Santos gets to fight now. Dos Santos vs. Henderson would be fun, but Dos Santos will probably TKO him in the first round.
Dos Santos is the best Heavyweight on the planet, I really don't think there's anyone who could beat him at the moment in MMA. He has some great Boxing, some solid takedown defense, solid takedowns, solid ground game and some good cardio condition.
yeah i'm really curious to see who JDS fights now that Mir and Cain are both out of the question. I can't think of any other heavyweights who are on enough of a roll right now to deserve a title shot over either of them.
There is always the possibility of the UFC wanting to give Werdum his rematch against Dos Santos just to see if he can get past the first round this time, but I think Dos Santos will just rock his ears again like he did last time.
Really, there's no one else who I think should receive a shot. Guys who are on win streaks who could possibly fight are Henderson moving up or Hunt.
TUF Live just keeps on dragging. The lead up to the fight this week was boring. The fight itself was boring. This episode completely was boring. Cruz and Faber aren't much fun as coaches either. One of the worst seasons of TUF so far and it's not even close. TUF Brazil despite the last fight not being so good, still has been a lot more fun and has a lot more potential to be a better season of TUF than TUF Live.
which just goes to show how dysfunctional the HW division is.
Well Frank earned it..Dana White just don't know who to give the title shot to...seriously Frank Mir Vs Cain? I mean, I love the idea...finally Frank is facing a legit heavyweight, it's just that, Cain should go back at the end of the line and give others a chance....
And yeah, who are we kidding about the Mark Hunt situation... if someone is gonna get a title shot, it should be Frank lol...just sayin, he broke Nogueira's arm for christ sake.
Dana White JUST WANTS CAIN VS JDS 2, TO HAPPEN...THAT'S PREPOSTEROUS and ****ING UNFAIR.
neither of them earned it. like you say it's too early for cain, and like you didn't say, mir has been as unimpressive as possible during his little win streak. i'm sure you don't see it that way, but you're a heavy mir fan, so any argument in that area will be pointless.
but the problem is, after reem there is no one in the entire division who really deserves an immediate shot. if cormier - barnett had been settled by now, you could have made a case for the winner. werdum is very close, especially since the reem fight can functionally be tossed. it's all asterisks everywhere you look. hunt just as much, but at least there's a small x-factor with that one. with mir, there's none. the real problem is that other than JDS and cain, the prospects in the division have been totally disappointing for years.
