Aftermath of UFC 156 gloomy

bluesybluesy Posts: 2,843Free
A lot of exciting things on the horizon have been buried by the results tonight.

No Silva vs. Evans -- MW contenders dropping like flies, as Silva maintains disinterest in Weidman

No Cain vs. Reem -- HW continues to look shallow with Cormier moving down and Reem dopping the ball

Nothing interesting happening at FW, at all, now that Jose retained his title against a P4P GOAT who was looking to shake things up

    P4P GOAT Edgar or Aldo? It's clear no one in the entire UFC organization has said, implied or even thought about Edgar being considered P4P. He is a touch kid, no doubt, but he's probably got to drop to 125 or 135 to have any power whatsoever, which you need to win fights.

    The guy knocked out Maynard and clipped Aldo more than a few times.
    He's not big Hendo or lil Hendo by any means but he's fighting world class athletes who are paid a lot of money to not get hit in the face
    Silva. idk how i feel about Silva. I feel like anything he had going for him coming into the UFC was ripped away when Cain pulled that drive by on him back at 146. Poor guy never even saw the Astro Van coming.....

    Only blow to the UFC is Overeem losing which I wanted. They shouldn't have to count on Rashad to save the MW division which now with HW are so bad, they need to debate shutting them down.

    Wow, According to KFLO, Pettis texted DW asking for ALDO at 145. SICK FIGHT!

    Dana must be pissed, the press conference is over. Maybe I was late turning it on but that must have been a short one. Reem vs jds is a big fight that makes sense though. Not all is lost.

    What do you get when you take A.Silva's clinch game + Mark Hunt's Iron Chin + Mushy Lady Parts?

    I can't name a clear cut contender for any divisions title
    still doesnt mean fighters should be getting the impression that they can just switch weight classes for easy title shots (not fights, shots)

    if I had to pick I'd say that Korean Zombie deserves the shot, but he's been out too long. Lamas looks good but I say have him fight Siver first
    Swanson and Porier are both looking good but Porier just lost to KZ and Swanson already lost to Aldo in like less than a minute.

    **** it Mike Brown is coming back soon give him the shot lol

    I see where you are coming from. But I don't think the Zombie is ready, and I am a Big fan. Mike Brown would need a tune up or 2.

    Also Pettis is waiting for Benson. But Pettis fighting Aldo would be another great fight. Also no waiting. Plus I really don't see anyone screaming for a shot at Aldo other than Pettis now. I understand being repectful, but fighters gotta start opening their mouths and make some noise about what they want.

    you realise he finished Maynard right? And who else has other than Maynard himself? lol

    I don't know what his status is (i.e. retiring or not), but I'd like to see Carwin take on Overeem.
    Dana: "Frank Shamrock came out with a statement the other day and wants to fight me. You know what I mean? Give me a f---ing break. The guy is a clown. I just have no respect for Frank Shamrock. That's the difference. Couture, I don't respect him at all – not even a little bit..."

    Rick James: "See, I never just did things just to do them. Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody's couch like it's something to do? Come on. I got a little more sense then that. Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Eddie's couch."

    I'd love to see Carwin come back and knock Overeem silly. Overeem is so damn cocky I just love watching him get knocked silly, especially because it's obvious from his record that his chin isn't so solid but he thinks he's god.
