Thus, yet another well-constructed matchup hosed, yet another new fight that doesn't make nearly as much sense. That's three of one and two and counting of the other.

Might as well just get ten guys together in the octagon and add nine chairs and a fiddler. At least once the dust settled there'd be a chance of some super-awesome fights accidentally being formed, like Nelson - Hunt, etc.

Nick Newell is an awesome inspiring fighter. Now talk about an inspiring story. He's a one arm MMA fighter and he's currently undefeated 7-0. It's super cool watching a one armed fighter beating other by submission with Heel Hooks, Rear Naked Chokes and Armbars.

Overeem has been denied his license can reapply after 9 months, was watching the stream, they actually commended him for being intelligent and honest, some dude even said he was handsome rofl. Basically he was injured during Brock fight a doctor prescribed a anti inflammatory drug and he was unaware that it had testosterone as a ingredient. Lmao , oh well atleast it wasnt a year.

Yea, Overeem's a totally honest guy. His problem is that he keeps forgetting that testosterone contains testosterone. Maybe one of these years he'll figure it out!

I like how he skipped the post-hearing drug test, too. As they were handing him his container he apparently rushed off, saying that Golden Glory was in danger of serving him legal papers. Actually he changed his answer a couple times, but that was the final one he gave. Class and honesty, yea. :D. Also his 3rd drug test shenanigan in a row. Thanks for wasting our time, Alistair... it was loads of fun!

Lombard is tremendous signing for the UFC. He's one of the best Middleweight's outside of the UFC. I'm curious to see how he'll hold up against some of the ranked UFC Middleweights.

Bellator released Alexis Vila & Masakatsu Ueda recently, so the UFC should pick them both up. Vila would be a tremendous addition to the thin UFC Flyweight division. Ueda's been one of the top ranked Bantamweight fighters of all time despite his recent loss to Marx. I can see Ueda giving a lot of the UFC Bantamweight problems. I know Bellator's looking to build up new fighters, but releasing fighters like Vila & Ueda is a bad move IMO.

munoz vs weidman is main event for ufc on fuel july 11..

i imagine the winner of that will face the winner of bisping/boetsch, which would prly be a #1 contender fight

maybe lombard will face one of the losers. but like someone mentioned vs stann or okami wouldnt surprise me either

At the UFC 147 press conference in Brazil, Dana announced that Anderson vs. Sonnen was being moved to UFC 148 in Las Vegas and that Aldo could possibly be fighting at UFC 147, but the only possible fighter they could consider a top ranked Featherweight challenger for Aldo's UFC Featherweight Title is Hatsu Hioki, but Hioki's fighting Ricardo Lamas at UFC on FX 4, so the next possible fighter to challenge Aldo for the title is Eric Koch, so don't be surprised if it's Aldo vs. Koch for the UFC Featherweight Title headlining UFC 147 Brazil.

I only buy 2-3 PPVs per year but UFC 148 is definitely on my "to order" list. Card shaped out pretty nicely

Silva vs Sonnen (Middleweight title)
Cruz vs Faber (Bantamweight title)
Griffin vs Ortiz (Ortiz's retirement match)

Then on top of that...

Franklin vs Le
Bisping vs Boetsch
Kim vs Maia

agreed, lots of interesting fights on top of the two title fights
barao on the undercard too, if he wins, he should be up for a #1 contender fight or even a title shot against cruz/faber
