Kinda wonder why there are so many TBDs. Maybe suck the PPV cash off some fans with last minute tomato cans. Boxing has gotten tainted because of this. Hate to see MMA follow the same suit.

Looks like the Heavyweight division is fianlly gonna get the boost it needs! It'll be interesting to see how Rich Franklin fairs after his last loss where he might as well have not bothered turning up against Silva. I don't see Chris Lytle giving Matt Hughes much of a challenge either, who knows though, maybe Matt could have another bad day at the Office. Babalu looked like an interesting prospect until he ran at Chuck all guns blazing and threw his technique right out of the window!

Will the rules change in England? Do UFC rules change from state-to-state or from country-to-country? I prefer Pride-FC Japanese rules where they are allowed to kick, stomp or knee an opponent to the head when the opponent is on the ground. Not being able to do so removes a large part of the game; a part which also happens to be pretty entertaining. I remember when Pride came to LV they had to forbid the aforementioned from the contests.

Well, Pride FC rules has the kneeing, etc. BUT it doesn't happen a huge amount of the time. A lot of the Pride FC I've seen, and I could be wrong, but a lot of standup fighting is involved. And the referees standup opponents much faster than they do in the UFC for zero activity. Pride seems to not care if you are moving around on the ground, you must either be trying for a lock or hitting the hell outta that person. Trying to gain position has no bearing, at least from the large amount of shows I've seen here in the states.

Fighters like Wanderlei Silva would probably dominate UFC fighters. I mean, I saw Liddell get knocked out by a #6 ranked fighter on a K-1 or Pride show once. He was slow compared to the other fighters. I think it'd be interesting to go to Pride rules if UFC went to London, be a wakeup call. It would be even more interesting to mix in Pride fighters.

I'd love to see Wanderlei vs. Tim Sylvia, and see the destruction of the UFC champion.

I hope Randy destroys Sylvia too. The only problem is Randy will probably get destroyed by CroCop! Either way, I can't see Randy holding the title for too long!
