Damn, few days ago I had a dream of Weidman beating Silva and taking the belt. Should have said it earlier, it would be more epic if he actually does that, which I doubt, but then again, I thought that dream was stupid and that he won't even get past Munoz...


And a bit late, but it's still funny

^ weidman outwrestled munoz and i sure as hell didn't see munoz getting taken down that easy. you gotta favor silva but i don't know if the gap is gigantic...weidman has underrated grappling and i think silva will have to finish him standing, which of course, he's capable of doing.

i mean, weidman is next in line right? unless they go belcher...they both could use a bit more experience but there's really no one else that stands out. i think rashad should get a tune up fight at 185 if he wants to go that route.

and holy crap was that a late stoppage. munoz was flattened...what the hell was josh waiting for?

LMAO @ that pic

EDIT: dana said it's weidman vs. bisping next, so i guess that settles that

or glove-head teixeria, i guess. gotta respect.

the only real matchup at this point is jones - silva, but both of them can can only make excuses why it shouldn't happen. i.e, the fighters keep their endorsements and the fans spin their wheels. meanwhile dana white seems to have lost his edge.

Apparently Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin are the next TUF coaches.

I don't really get the choices. Nelson is an incredibly tough guy and fairly entertaining but he's basically completely irrelevant when it comes to the top of that weight division. I guess he should make for some good TV at least. Carwin isn't exactly brimming with charisma and I'd be very surprised if we ever see him in a title fight again.

I assume no other higher profile guys wanted to do it.

i really wanted to see cruz vs. faber last go around too. ya, roy has a helluva chin but he just can't finish guys. he can get in slugfests and avoid subs, but after that? carwin is getting up there in age, as if cardio wasn't an issue before. pretty meh, but i was never a big fan of TUF anyway so whatever.

ufc 149 is just cursed with all these injuries. those five main fights just don't interest me all that much

TUF has fallen off drastically, and the talent coming off the show is a shadow of what it once was.

i was thinking about this the other day. with the sport becoming more popular, why do you think that is? do the talented upcoming guys just get signed behind the scenes? diaz and bader seem like the last impactful major players. you could throw roy in there. and maybe chiesa and pearson but look at who they're fighting. it just doesn't seem like we're getting those legends and gateholders coming through like the early days.

I haven't been following MMA as long as many here, but it does seem like the pool of available talent has shrunk somewhat. Not to mention, even the early winners of TUF did not exactly go on to become MMA legends.

What it probably comes down to is the fact that if you're kickass enough to make the UFC, you 'll tend to make it on your own merits through the various other fight networks, and not because you looked good in the UFC beauty contest. Or something like that. But from the articles I recall on BE, MMF, MMJ, etc, they tend to paint a similar picture.

Any opinion on the idea of JDS training hard in orthodox boxing and taking on the Klitschkos at some point? Maybe not as a likely winner, but as a strong challenger, at the least?

Cain is my favorite MMA fighter and I have huge respect for AO's game, but I'm not sure either will be able to bother the incredible punching machine known as JDS. Just IMO, of course....

You really want this question answered dont you?

I'll say yes just because everyone else tells you no.

It wasn't a yes or no question, but thanks for your insightful analysis of the situation.

Except that it is a yes or no question.
