  1. I agree with the decision. Frankie executed a great game plan. It was Frankie who controlled the fight and BJ did nothing. I watched it again after and thought BJ did even less than when I watched it live.
  2. He is champ. He has defeated all the top contenders and done so in dominant fashion shutting everyone down and forcing them to play his game. The guy is awesome. Nuff said.
  3. Plausible to be sure. But the it could work out in a near infinite number of permutations at this point as I think it is anybody's game and for the foreseeable future I can see the Heavyweight belt changing hands back and forth between most of the fighters listed. And that is great for the sport and the fans.
  4. I have been somewhat confused by all the Machida bashing that has taken place since the Shogun Fight. I agree you can definitely argue that Shogun won, but that was the first time Machida was ever in a position to potentially lose. He came into the the UFC and made an undefeated run to the belt...and he is still undefeated. So how does everybody suddenly write him off? I liked the fact that in the Shogun fight he hung in there and went the distance in a case where things were definitely not going his way. Shogun definitely deserves the rematch and I think it will be a great fight but I will be pulling for Machida.
  5. I like listening to Mir. I think he is one of the most interesting and at times articulate fighters in the game. I also think a lot of what you get from him is just part of his strategy to gain a psychological edge going into a fight. His last fight with Brock was a no questions about it demolition but if he beats Carwin, and I will be rooting for him, he has a legitimate shot at taking Brock if his new strength and conditioning program really pays off. there is an issue there though in terms of Brock being a natural physical freak of nature in terms of speed and strength and I don't think you can crate that through conditioning in terms of matching someone with the genetics who also trains to their peak.
  6. I think it is a good idea. Brings some interest and for at least one fight people will be tuning in to see how he stacks up. Awesome hands and he will definitely have the ability to stand with anyone in MMA. That said it is Mixed Martial Arts and to be relevant you have to have a fully rounded game. So if Toney thinks just his boxing will take him anywhere he will be in for a rude awakening on the ground.
  7. I hope not. I like Mike (Good t-shirt idea for him there!!!) and I think he represents the sport well. He is an exciting fighter and he always brings it. It would take a few more losses before I would consider it.
  8. You can't deny his talent. He rules his division as dominantly as GSP or Silva. What he needs to do to insure his legacy is to stop talking. Let your performances do the talking BJ...you'll come out way ahead.
  9. Toronto. They would break all their records. Toronto is dying for an event but they just can't seem to get sanctioned. I know Dana and the brothers are drooling over the chance to tap what is one of the greatest sports markets in the world.
  10. Was it Kalib who ran away from swick for the entire fight? That was awful!!!!
  11. I thought he won the Couture fights as well. But even with that I still usually feel letdown with his performances. I guess the expectations have always been high, as in he was to be the next big thing and he just seems to always fall short. He has the raw talent but perhaps its just a case of getting his head right and performing up to ability. I will be rooting for him on the 21st and I hope we see him live up to his potential. Another lackluster performance and my support will definitely wane.

  13. Vera is a talented fighter but I have to admit I don't think anybody has failed to meet expectations as often as he has. I get psyched to see him fight and then he just ends up disappointing. For my money if he does not do something spectacular on March 21 I may just have to give up. Your thoughts?
  14. I am stoked for this fight. I think it cvould either way and no outcome will surprise me. Have to give the edge to Mir in terms of experience and in having faced and beaten many of the elite. Carwin impressed me with the gonzaga win in terms of getting completely rocked by a moose and jumping back up and utilizing his KO power. Flip a coin on this one. For the sake of a pick I'm going to say Carwin by KO in the first.
