Shane Carwin just dropped out of his fight against Nelson at UFC 125. I guess that Pat Barry moves on up to face Nelson and that Lesnar gets Carwin when they both get back. Frank Mir gets the short end of the stick.

Do watch. Now that the WEC and UFC are merging, these final shows will determine how much pull will the BW, FW and FLW (eventually) guys have in their match-ups.

It's also notable that some guys in the LW class in the UFC will drop down to FW or even BW in order to be more competitive. Aldo's camp already said that Aldo will eventually move up a class so people are running for the hills as soon as they can.

Yeah its going to open up a lot of doors for the UFC fighters too, i love WEC.. The past few have been better than the UFC events when it comes to exciting fights and good finishes.. Imagine BJ Penn at featherweight? Not that he looks like he even wants to be fighting these days..

Gonna watch WEC tonight :D

BJ Penn fought at LHW sometimes. He's huge for FW. Most FW guys aren't even 1,70m and BJ is 1,75m. The cut would probably be too much for him.

No.

I want to see Rampage v Machida 2.

Why would anyone see that again? Is Machida running to be the rematch king?

Because I know that Machida can knock out/submit Rampage, even though I want Rampage to knock out Machida.

I don't know what would happen, you know for sure that Machida would change his style. It's a win-win for me. I'm still shocked that Machida has lost two in a row. I used to think that he was the Anderson Silva of his division.

He didn't change his style after the first Shogun fight which he lost (even if the judges didn't agree). His refusal to change his style is putting is future at jeopardy in the Division. If he insists in counter-punching instead of taking the fight to the opponents, he's going to keep losing decisions to more agressive fighters and getting KOed by better strikers.

There is also no money in that rematch. It was a weird decision but the fight was awful. Had it been a slobberknocker, Dana would be announcing the rematch right after the fight. Since it was kind of a snoozefest... not so much. I think Rampage should fight the loser of Jon Jones vs Ryan Bader for the next title shot. The winner of Jones vs Bader should have the next shot after Rashad fights Shogun. Machida... I don't know, if they give him the loser of Evans vs Shogun, it's an encore but I don't think it would be a draw. Maybe he should fight some middle of the pack guy to get back on a winning path. He won't be cut because is far better to keep him around than to let him go to other promotions.

What are your opinions on women's MMA? Positive, negative, couldn't care less?

It's funny and horrible. I suggest that Gina Carano should shift her career into something more revealing :shifty:

Never did talk about the retardation that was Zoila Frausto "beating" (in judges minds) Megumi Fujii, taking her 125 pound belt and winning streak and then imediately vacating to title to move up one weight class. It was bad for Megumi Fujii and it was bad for Bellator that lose that somewhat special draw of the best MMA fighter in the world (record wise).

In other news, Strikeforce should really call it quits on matchmaking. They tried to call in Todd Duffee to face Pez?o in such short notice. He said no so now they're sacrificing one of their "top" LHW prospects to him. Christ...

Theres news flying around that Bellator have signed a tv deal with MTV..

http://mmajunkie.com/news/21747/ceo-bjorn-rebney-details-bellators-new-three-year-deal-with-mtv2.mma

Yes, seems like Bellator is coming to MTV 2.

Did anyone see Ubereem destroying Todd Duffee in Dynamite!! 2010? Duffee took a gamble by taking that fight with only two weeks notice. There was no way he could beat Ubereem without a proper training camp. And Ubereem crushes yet another can for the DREAM HW title that didn't exist until that date.

They won't ever. Overeem likes to fight in Japan all the time, more so than the US. UFC never lets people fight in a bunch of other promotions at the same time.

Strikeforce and Dream have a deal where they can fight in both promotions. Plus Overeem does K1.

And about Dufee taking a gamble, Overeem just won the K1 tournament 2 weeks ago. Fought 3 fights one 1 night. And he totally crushed him. I don't think a proper training camp would have done anything for his chances. lol

Overeem's been destroying cans but still he destroyed Brett Rogers and Cro-Cop in the first round, Brett beat Arlovski and went 2 rounds with Fedor; Cro-Cop went 3 rounds with Dos Santos and Frank Mir and yet Overeem destroyed them both in the first round I actually believe Overeem wouldn't do to badly in the UFC he'd lose to Brock and the wrestlers but I believe he'd beat most of the UFCs strikers.

      Apple releases new Pride Edition sports bands for the Apple Watch
      by João Carrasqueira

      Around this time of the year, some companies join the celebration of Pride Month and the Stonewall riots. Apple has also done this for the past few years, with watch bands for the Apple Watch making use of the multi-colored stripes in the Pride flag, and this year, the company is doing it again.

      This time around, the company is releasing two new rubber sports bands in the theme of Pride. One is the regular sports band, which basically just looks like the pride flag, except it wraps around your wrist. There's also a Pride flag watch face to match. The other is part of the lineup of Nike-branded bands, and it features a much more subtle implementation of the Pride colors, along with an equally subtle watch face. The new watch faces will arrive with watchOS 6.2.5.

      As usual, sales of these Pride Edition watch bands help support organizations that work for the LGBT community, including GLSEN, PFLAG, The Trevor project, and more.

      In 2018, Apple used a nylon watch band to promote the Pride celebrations, but this year, you can only get the multi-colored look in the rubber bands, and it doesn't look like you can buy the previous editions from Apple. On the bright side, every generation of the Apple Watch uses the same size fitting for the bands, so you can still get the new bands if you have an older model. You can get the regular watch band here and the Nike version here, and both cost $49.

      Microsoft is making Pride Type Covers for Surface PCs
      by Rich Woods

      Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Microsoft is producing new Type Covers and skins for its Surface PCs and celebrating the Pride community. While the company hasn't announced the new accessories just yet, leakster WalkingCat has discovered a video showing them off.

      The video shows a Type Cover that says 'Pride' in the traditional rainbow colors, and a skin with the multicolored stripes.

      Naturally, things like pricing and availability are unconfirmed, so if you want to get your hands on them, you'll have to wait. The PCs shown in the video are from the Surface Pro lineup, so it's also not clear if there will be variants of the Type Cover for the Surface Go, or if there will be variants of the skin for other Surface PCs.

      The anniversary of the Stonewall Riots is on June 28, so it seems likely that we'll learn more about Microsoft's plans for these accessories closer to that date.

      Apple's gay pride watch face blocked in Russia
      by Sharath Ravishankar

      Apple has long been a proponent for gay pride and empowerment, what with its CEO being an openly gay man. This has been reflected, for instance, with this band for the Apple Watch.

      The Watch also has a special watch face in tandem with this accessory - a vertical strip of colors representing gay pride - that has, as of the past couple months, been blocked in Russia. Mounting reports from users in the country speak of this option simply not existing on both the Watch app on their respective iPhones, as well as on the Watches themselves.

      Further investigation by iOS developer Guilherme Rambo have revealed that the pride watch face is hardcoded to vanish for users in Russia locales. This was confirmed by the good folks from The Verge, who observed this phenomenon by changing their iOS device's location to Russia.

      As disappointing as this move must be for many, this does come in light of Russia's rising intolerance against the gay community, which reached its peak when the country passed an anti-gay propaganda law in 2013. Incidentally, the aforementioned watch band isn't being sold in Russia either, so it's easy to come to the conclusion that Apple is simply looking to avoid litigation. The company has released no statement so far on this matter.

      Twitch streamer masquerades UFC 218 live event as game stream
      by Timi Cantisano

      Over the years, watching other people play video games has become quite popular, with Twitch being one of the main platforms users have come to rely on when showing off their skills. Despite it being a streaming platform for user-created content, the service has been used in the past to stream copyrighted materials like sports matches and more.

      While these typically get flagged and removed, it looks like one enterprising streamer had a bit of fun over the weekend, broadcasting UFC 218, which was the rematch bout between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo, while making it look like he was actually playing a game. The broadcaster, AJ Lester, was fully equipped with control in hand, headphones on, and also had reactions to the action as well. You can see a small clip of the action above, as Lester has now removed the stream from his Twitch channel.

      Although this is comical and has gained Lester a moment of internet fame, there is the possibility that he could be facing some serious consequences. For now, he has stated that he has not heard anything in regards to copyright violations.

      Samsung announces VR Live Pass
      by Paul Hill



      Samsung has announced VR Live Pass for Gear VR, an initiative which will allow users to stream live events to their Gear VR from new partners including UFC, X Games and Live Nation. The live events will be immersive broadcasts from sporting and music events among other things. Samsung will launch Live Pass through the Samsung VR app in early June.

      Younghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics, said:

      Events will begin broadcasting in June with some already being announced, they include:

      UFC 212: Aldo vs Holloway, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 3, 2017. X Games Minneapolis, USA July 13 – 16, 2017: the event includes BMX riders and skaters including Jimmy Wilkins, Chad Kerley and Jagger Eaton. Live Music Concert with International Artists, USA August 2017. One warning that should be noted, however, is that the UFC 212 main card, including the fight mentioned above, won’t be available for users in the US and New Zealand. Gear VR users in those regions will only be able to watch the UFC Fight Pass preliminaries.
