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.

Totally forgot it was on, im on it now!

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...

Chael's suspension reduced to 6 months including time served. He'll be up and fighting as early as March. Just in time for TUF 14 :devil:

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.
