I hope Goldberg doesn't compare Gustafsson so much to Jones in his next fight smh.

Gustafsson is lanky as hell, Jones is lanky as hell. Other than that any similarities pointed out between the two is just UFC reaching tryin to make SOMEONE seem like a legit threat to Bones.

At 205 Evans is the last real option as far as contenders go IMO

Side notes:

* I thought it was funny that John Maguire wears all black and pink because he said his lifelong hero is Bret "Hitman" Hart, and he goes on to win by submission. Bret would be proud

* Bahazurada seems like a really likable guy. I'm watching a postfight show and he said his only goal in UFC is to get Afghanastan in headlines for a positive reason because anytime the world sees the name they assume it's something negative. He also won knockout of the night. Seems like a funny, down to earth guy though

* Anyone else find it interesting that UFC's last 2 FREE tv cards have been better than their last few PPV's overall?

ever since the FX deal....Joe Silva has tried to make fights exciting for viewers on the free cards..(IMO more type's of fights where the 2 fighters will stand and trade) rather then more technical fights that only hardcore fans will appreciate....

Just found this on Tatame and it says that Dana announced it at the UFC on FUEL TV 2 press conference in Sweden.

Apparently the translation says TUF India, then TUF Australia vs. UK and then TUF Canada.

Anyone who speaks better Portuguese than me can probably confirm this.

Dana says that Hunt won't be getting the next shot at the UFC Heavyweight Title, that a fight with Dos Santos is an unfair fight for Hunt and that if Hunt can beat Struve then Hunt will get a fight with a top 5 Heavyweight after.

Both Paulo Thiago and Thiago Silva showed a lot of promise, but are now close to getting cut.

Paulo Thiago I could see getting cut with another loss, Thiago Silva I could see being kept around for a while. They'll probably face unranked fighters in their next fight on the preliminary card.

The UFC should give Thiago Silva a rematch with Vera. Roided or not, Thiago Silva put a nasty beating on Vera in their fight and the decision got turned over to a no contest due to substances Thiago Silva was caught in in the post fight drug test. This makes perfect sense and is a fight Thiago Silva could win. Thiago Silva is a super exciting fighter to watch also. He's one of the few fighters who can get rocked and comeback and not stop trying to stand up with a fighter. Thiago Silva always shows tremendous heart and goes for the finish in all of his fights.

Paulo Thiago is super talented on the ground and is really fun to watch but like other Brazilian fighters, Paulo Thiago struggles when he's fighting wrestlers.

Either way I hope neither fighter gets cut yet. They should be given another opportunity with unranked opponents and they should let them work their way up the rankings again.

re: the overeem situation,
still a really interesting situation IMO. sounds like he could go before the AC later this month and pull a chael sonnen, whipping out the right doctor's note and legal argument and get approved for the dos santos fight.

meanwhile, dos santos' last MMA statement was basically that it's unfair that he doesn't know who he's supposed to train for at this point. hard to really disagree with him IMO. not to mention more and more fans (from what i've observed) seem to think it will be an insult to the sport if the reem is somehow enabled to fight this one.

TBH it's a great, fascinating storyline. feels wrong as hell, but the rubbernecker in me still wants to see the fight happen somehow.

TUF Brazil episode 4 is online already and I just finished watching.

Not really going to talk about it that much.

I'll only say that it had the best fight on the show so far.
