No kidding, who has a stream for this card? The UFC is spreading itself a tad bit thin I think.

Bonnar is hard to predict, hopefully his head will be straight. One thing he's not intimidated and not afraid to get bloody which seems to motivate him once he gets cut. I'd love to see Bonnar take an offensive approach and throw some leg kicks at Silva. I see Bonnar winning if he goes ape *hit on Silva otherwise Anderson in 1.

Bonnar bleeds if you breathe on him. Size might be a factor, bonner has nothing to lose, he's a warrior etc etc is all ufc hype machine.

MAIN CARD
- Demian Maia vs. Rick Story - This is going to be either a short fight or an ugly one. I would settle for short and ugly.
- Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado - Watch out for those fingers, Pokeassaurus Rex.
- Jon Fitch vs. Erick Silva - THE fight to watch out for.
- Dave Herman vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Did Herman even train for this?
- Fabio Maldonado vs. Glover Teixeira - Winner gets a leg up on the LHW title picture seeing how every other elite LHW except for Machida and Bjornes is pretty much a broken toy.
- Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar - LOL.


Huh? Noguiera looked to be the most out of shape between the two.

Yea he does bleed pretty easy. UFC wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for Franklin and Bonnar and that blood bath back in the day. Your right about the UFC hype machine and Dana pulling Bonnar out of retirement is nothing less then jacking up the pay-per-view #'s. UFC has declined a little in their monthly fights and people want to see all the older warriors but they're all getting too old.

Bonnar & leg kicks? What? Have you seen him fight lately? Also, the idea that Bonnar could do anything with leg kicks against Anderson Silva is pretty ludicrous in itself. Sonnen laid out the blueprint to beat him, that's it. If you can wrestle him, sure. If not, you have no chance.

Yes, but Herman has trouble motivating himself to train. I think he said so himself after his fight with Struve. Nogueira has been out of "shape" for years due to the toll on his body. Does he even look 36 to you?

going for Bonnar then :shifty:

:rofl: It's the sure money.

It wasn't Franklin, it was Forrest Griffin. Also, no one is buying this PPV for Bonnar. If he wasn't fighting Anderson Silva, one of, if not the best PPV draw in the UFC, the numbers would be even more ridiculous. Shogun vs Bonnar would do 1/2 the buys, Bonnar vs Teixeira would do 1/8.

I've only seen the Main Card so here are my comments. As for overall event comments: referees continue to be as dumb as a box of rocks, yelling instructions in English to brazilian fighters. When the crowd is chanting "Tu vai morrer", what they're saying is: You're going to die. Rogan and Goldberg tried to never mention it in the broadcast.

MAIN CARD
- Demian Maia vs. Rick Story - Looks like I got it right and it was a short fight. Maia just rushed Story and cracked him like a nut. The moment when Story's mouth and nose start bleeding from the pressure being exerted was cringeworthy. This loss is the end of the line for Rick Story's WW ambitions. He is still a solid fighter, capable of defeating lot's of aspiring WW, but he'll have to do some major changes to be in the division's Top 10 again. He's 28, so he still has some time but he may run out of chances to do it in the UFC now that he's 1-3 in his last 4, one of those against a short notice opponent who the UFC has already cut (Charlie Brenneman). As for Maia, he's been looking very strong since returning to his bread and butter of BJJ and dropping to WW. Still, both his fights were pretty short so we aren't really aware of the extent of the changes he has implemented. Still, lot's of WW around waiting for a fight. For his next fight, I would say either Jake Ellenberger or Jon Fitch, "name" fights at least.
- Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado - This fight was hard to watch. Davis got back into the Main Card of a PPV and beat seven shades of **** out of Prado. Prado had absolutely nothing for him because, like I said when they fought on the Shogun vs. Vera card, he was 8-0 in local promotions and never had faced a wrestler, much less one of Phil Davis caliber. And getting beaten down like that in front of your hometown crowd, that hurts even more. Prado's future? I don't know, maybe match him up with Maldonado on the UFC card in Brazil. As for Davis, they'll probably have him fight Glover Teixeira since every big name LHW continually ducks that guy (and for good reason).
- Jon Fitch vs. Erick Silva - Fitch didn't finish but he put on an impressive display like we hadn't seem from him in a long time. Heck, he even tried for submissions, SEVERAL times. Silva said he fought the same way, regardless of opponent, and it cost him dearly. Had he prepared to keep the fight standing, perhaps the result would've been different. Or not, seeing how Fitch was going all out for a FOTN bonus (that he deservedly got). He survived tough submission attempts, traded blows, dominated the fight, and won. Silva will have another chance in the octagon, he has immense potential. I think this fight will be for him what the Condit fight was for Rory: a setback that makes them hungry for the more and gives them the will to improve even more. I would still like to see Silva against his original UFC opponent, Siyar Bahadurzada. As for Fitch, Jake Ellenberger or Demian Maia. Or do something really special and make him welcome Nick Diaz back into the octagon.
- Fabio Maldonado vs. Glover Teixeira - It should be crystal clear to everyone that watched that fight why Rampage was suddenly "injured" or why Shogun didn't want to fight Teixeira. He would clobber them into a fine pulp. Maldonado has an adamantium chin, no doubt about it. He just ate punch after brutal punch and barring that left hook finishing the 1st, he had nothing for Glover. After this showing, the UFC needs to force guys to take fights against him or he'll be on the shelf for a while. A good candidate is Phil Davis, who also won on this card. Another is the winner of Thiago Silva vs Stanislav Nedkov.
- Dave Herman vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Somehow I can't shake the feeling that Herman threw the fight. He was holding his own on the ground, wisely not following Nogueira down into his guard, but was content to stand in front of Nogueira with his hand out and not throw anything. Whenever Nogueira tried to land, he would tie him up, throw him to the ground and not follow up. It was a weird performance, on the level of Shields vs Akyiama, where Akyiama mounted no offense despite throwing Shields all over the place. Herman will probably get cut or put in against the loser of Lavar Johnson vs Brendan Schaub (insider tip: it's Schaub). As for Nogueira, he'll be a late notice replacement to Shane Carwin on the TUF Finale and fight Roy Nelson. That, or he fights the winner of that fight.
- Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar - LOL.

Silva vs Jones plz

kthnxbai


Not gonna happen. Silva is a MW who just doesn't cut to fight at LHW. Jones is a HW who cuts down to LHW. Silva isn't dumb. Also, I've read now that Rampage asked to fight Glover again (on a more lucrative PPV card than a brazilian on certainly). This is going to be fun.
