I expect Dana to cut Overeem from the UFC if he doesn't pass his next test and this fight has to changed or pulled.

I heard that there's rumors that Mir might step up and fight Dos Santos, Antonio Silva steps in and fights Velasquez and Mitrione steps in and fights Roy Nelson.

so apparently that random drug test that AO failed just now was actually part of his conditional deal to fight lesnar late last year- necessary because he very slickly escaped the first drug test he was supposed to take with some excuses about miscommunication and going back to holland to visit his sick mother.

so in other words, these two things- that he really has no leg to stand on at this point and that the fight results against brock should be voided according to the agreement. the fight should be ruled a no-contest despite the tardiness involved.

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.

Still ecstatic about it, but it would be sweeter if Mir fights JDS at UFC 146 :)


....I'm saying it now, Frank will shut a lot of his critics.

Dan Henderson would take fight with Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 if offered.

You know, this might be just crazy enough to work.

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.
