Kos vs. BJ is a fight between 2 guys who will never get a title shot again, but are big enough names to make a big fight which should be fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Yeah the Korean Zombie is super fun to watch. One of my favorite fighters. If you've never seen any of the Korean Zombie's fights from before his UFC run, do yourselves a favor and watch Korean Zombie vs. Masanori Kanehara from Sengoku. It's the best Korean Zombie pre-UFC fight. Of course it's nowhere as fun as Korean Zombie vs. Garcia I nor as fun as Korean Zombie vs. Poirier, but it's his third best fight after those 2.

Thiago Bodao is one of the nicest guys in TUF history and one of the nicest guys in MMA in general.

Also Wanderlei's not a very good TUF coach and tries to build up drama with some pointless occurrences.

Faber and Team Alpha Male are funny.

Watch and you might get what I said.

Massaranduba vs. Macarrao at UFC 147.

Alves wants a rematch with Kampmann after the Bahadurzada fight.

I know im so late for this but i got to say Ufc on fuel had some great fights.

Cerrone looked really good against the guy who lost to Pettis via a split decision. I really doubt Cerrone improved drastically or Stephens declined in just a few months, so i think it's fair to compare their respective match ups with nate and pettis. Obviously game plans and type of fight preferred by fighters affects the outcome, but for the most part, all 4 of those guys prefer a stand up battle. So to me this fight further solidifies Nate Diaz being the number contender. As a fan of diaz, i'd much rather see Diaz fight Pettis than to wait for the winner of Bendo/Edgar. Cerrone should probably fight the winner of Maynard/Guida.

As for the main event, well what can i say, KZ brings it every time. He's like the shogun of featherweight division, in a sense that he fight's like a zombie....or maybe it's the other way around. Maybe Rua should be called the brazilian zombie..... Being that the FW doesnt have much contenders lined up, a fight with Aldo looks logical at this point.

Maldonado and Pokrajac was another good bout. But i believe Maldonado was robbed of yet another victory. Judges probably doesnt like fighters throwing punches exclusively. Dude has a great chin so he doesnt mind getting knee'd repeatedly but from the looks of it Fabio clearly out struck Igor.

Hope he comes back as a lightweight. I think Kos is just going to wrestlefck him for 3 or 5 rounds.

I don't see what makes Wandy a bad coach. Also, I can see their argument from both sides. It didn't make Belfort look good lying about it, though.

Well that scks. His refusal probably has more to do with Melendez being in strikeforce than it being a lightweight fight me thinks. Regardless, the ufc should convince him to fight at LW and offer him an interesting fight at that division.

The way that Wanderlei and Cordeiro jump on the fighters from their team after they lose, the fact that they don't really seem to have a gameplan for fights outside of telling the fighters they're coachin to go all out like they would makes him a bad coach.

The argument is super lame. I think Wanderlei over did the whole situation with the "it's one of the saddest days in MMA for me seeing 2 friends fight." It looked bad on Vitor for lying too.

BJ doesn't want to fight for now he's retired, it has nothing to do with Melendez not being a UFC fighter and fighting in Strikeforce. BJ has also said he doesn't want to fight at Lightweight and if he returns it will be at Welterweight, so there's little to no chance of him coming back at Lightweight.

They did it to like 1 or 2 guys. They didn't do it on the last show did they? Nope. They were disappointed in some of the fighters who looked like they didn't give the effort. To me, it looked like a couple of them could have done a lot more in their fights. If you see a guy in practice and he looks really good, but when he gets in the cage he looks much worse like he's not going for it, then there's going to be disappointment.

cool... barnett vs. cormier in a little more than 24 hours. finally this disastrous GP has a chance at closure. and two requests:

- could we please break the laws of reality and have both men win... some how, some way?

- could we not have the winner waste theirs and everyone else's time by fighting one more fight in SF before being accepted in to the UFC?
