just wanted to apologise for being such an obnoxious a-hole in post 1411. more and more this sport is absolutely the coolest, most interesting, realistic sport i've ever followed, but it seems i can lose it sometimes. sorry about that.

anyway, i don't get in the slightest how people can be interested in boxing and scripted wrestling after following their first MMA event. it doesn't make sense to me in any way possible, although maybe someone can explain it to me who understands better.

at the same time, MMA is the only sport i've ever followed in which i was a total amateur at, personally. weird feeling. i mean, i've had success at tennis and racketball sports, street hockey, american football, bball, softball and baseball, but in shotokan / kenpo i barely progressed past white / green belt or something like that (sorry, been a long time, can't remember precisely). fedor, anderson silva, GSP and the rest are the most incredible magicians to me... david blaine territory in my mind, without question. anyway, whatever. just a drooling fan here, basically.

lolz Dana said he offered him the biggest contract ever and he still didnt budge on the co promotion, plus I recently read he didnt like the UFC because of the trash talk Dana has been saying about him.

the idea that fedor could cut 30-35 lbs to get to LHW and that he's lost much of any real speed are both total myths IMO.

fact is, fedor only lost one fight in his entire career in which he looked decisively outclassed. and of that particular fight, it was only the second round, when bigfoot achieved mount, that showed how vulnerable he could be against a BJJ expert and all-around beast, giving up like 30+ pounds to the dude. and yes, cain and cormier both showed how to beat bigfoot, but they're both fantastic wrestlers who used precision gameplans, two things that fedor failed to achieve.

there is no doubt in my mind that fedor is still a top-five HW at age 35. i can't see him beating JDS, but he could definitely give a lot of trouble to cain, cormier, mir, and a couple others. all he would really need to do against werdum and hendo is to not jump in to their guards-- otherwise he knocks both guys out standing up.

really, this is all about fedor's desire to be with his kids, DW being a hot-headed, stubborn douchebag as usual, and fedor's mgmt being greedy douchebags as usual. other than those three things, there is no actual reason fedor shouldn't be wrecking skulls in the UFC even now.

Against Frank should be reasonable.

Carwin fought JDS for the contender spot... Frank fought JDS for the belt and lost. And I don't think Frank is gonna wait for a year to fight Brock. lol

Silva was saved at the end of the 3rd when Franklin was dropping elbows on his face. Smart fight by Franklin. Weather the storms, use your movement and wait for openings/mistakes.

Wanderlei is lucky that Vitor got injured. Vitor would have knocked him into retirement.
