Poor Frank Mir

That first right hand on aoki on the ground was viscous.

dana white totally f-d up. not only does he make himself out to be a liar, not only does he create a boring fight with little potential to be interesting, but the overeem hearing was only a few days away.

either he should have made the decision when he first verbally went off against AO or he should have waited until the hearing. pulling the trigger in the middle of the process makes no sense, although ethically it's definitely the right decision IMO.

possibly there's some hidden development to this and i'm criticising on incomplete info...

If Overeem gets cleared he'll probably end up fighting Velasquez and the winner of that fight fights Dos Santos next for the UFC Heavyweight Title similar to the St. Pierre, Diaz, Condit UFC Welterweight Title situation and such.

If it's not fair to JDS, I don't see how it would be fair to Cain.

If the hearing didn't factor into the decision to maintain JDS-AO, then the decision shouldn't suddenly matter, you know?

Alistaire needs to test clean for awhile to deserve another fight IMO. Even if he's cycling, just cycle properly to beat the tests- not too much to ask, is it? Because that's essentially two tests in a row he's now failed.

The whole situation is just nonsensical, although maybe I'm in the minority in feeling that way.

That actually makes it seem even MORE like the Diaz/GSP/Condit situation then IMO, with Reem being in the Diaz position. Think about it and it's pretty damn similar. UFC WANTS to keep Diaz in the title picture but he kept completely blowing it, first by skipping out on the mandatory appearances/press conference, then by (gasp) failing a drug test. UFC wanted Reem in the title picture but he keeps blowing it. First by skipping out out the country before his Lesnar test then by (gasp) failing a drug test. Meanwhile Condit and Cain are just working hard and being kept wondering what's next for them while UFC sorts things out with the boneheads.

true. well, there's both similarities and differences, i guess.

it's weird- i'm pretty irritated by diaz in general, but other than him being a knucklehead, there's no way in hell i think weed plays any significant cheating role in MMA, so i definitely want him reinstated and fighting. whereas with AO, i definitely like him and like how he conducts himself, but the idea that he doesn't juice is probably pie in the sky, which means he really shouldn't be fighting, as hard as that is to admit.

one is basically gaming the system in front of everyone and the other is being tripped up over the most petty of technicalities. yet both are looking at what, one year suspensions?

I'm guessing they want to start promoting the hell out of UFC 146.

With Dos Santos fighting Mir now, Velasquez will be fighting Werdum. If Overeem can still get cleared for a fight, it will be Velasquez vs. Overeem and Werdum vs. Russow as it was originally scheduled to occur.
