Enjoyed the fight last night. I wanted Wandy to win but it's not like the result really mattered that much anyway at this point. Just glad they put on a pretty good 5 rounder. I actually went to a bar with my cousin and 2 of our female friends to watch the PPV. If you've never watched UFC with girls you have to try it...their commentary and reactions to the shit is hilarious

But as long as we're talkin about fights this weekend what about f*ckin Guida's track and field exhibition against Maynard? I had to DVR that fight and yesterday morning I woke up all ready to watch a fast paced, intense fight. Instead I see....running. Not "footwork" as I've seen some MMA snobs tryin to call it online, but pure running. So damn disappointed in that one. White was pissed afterwards too. If Guida wasn't so popular (before this fight at least) his spot would probably be in jeopardy after that

some people seem to be comparing guida-maynard to condit-diaz. i consider that extremely wishful thinking.

condit was willing to engage everywhere except the perimeter of the octagon- by the end, diaz' face was busted up and all major compustats had condit outlanding total shots and significant shots.

guida, other than some interesting exchanges, ran away on the edges, the middle, and everywhere else. there is no way in any reasonable or totally bizarre universe that the dude deserves the win or should be compared to condit.

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.

Can't agree. He's not getting any younger and all those years he spent doing the same ol' training and not expanding caught up to him. Just look at the level of competition he chose to fight in his last 3. If he had any desire to really improve and not be so set in his ways, then he would have gone after better opponents. Fedor avoided Overeem like the plague and he avoided the UFC. Do you see the confidence in Fedor in his actions?

Yep, Guida was much closer to Starnes than he was to Condit.

It'd be interesting to see how Sonnen does without doping pre-fight.

I thought they cleared him to use TRT? I haven't been following too much.

Here's the story.
Quote:
Sonnen tested positive for testosterone at a 16.9-to-1 testosterone to epitestosterone ratio. Normal levels are 1-to-1, and allowable levels in most sports, including by the CSAC, is 4-to-1. Sonnen claimed he had a spiked ratio because he took a shot the day before he was tested. The commission has approved testosterone therapy, but only to get levels back to normal levels, not increased levels that would provide for enhanced performance.

In cases of this type that have been approved, it has been because the athlete informed the commission well ahead of time, allowing the commission, the commissionís medical advisers and the fighterís doctor to go through records and examine the case, which didnít happen in this case.

Sonnenís team produced eight tests showing levels at lower than average to average levels, not levels that would indicate performance enhancement qualities. But those tests were not taken at the time of the Silva fight.
Basically he can inject himself with some, but not nearly as much as he did. And there's a fair chance his low-T is the result of past doping.

I like Sonnen but I'm pretty sure its safe to say Silva is gonna beat the crap out of him this time around. I'm predicting 2nd or 3rd round TKO
