  1. Vitor Belfort seems like the logical decision because he's on a 2 fight win streak. If he beat Wanderlei he definitely would be fighting for the title again. I don't know though. Could the UFC sell that to the public? Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz could sell tickets in championship fights against Anderson. Maybe the 2 of them fight after there respective fights coming up to challenge the winner of a Silva Vs Belfort 2? Nobody wants to see 6-10 challenge Anderson (no disrespect to anyone on the list. I'm speaking in terms of a marketing value as well as what fans really want to see), so it would only make sense for the above scenario IF he stayed in Middleweight. Him moving up to Light Heavyweight or doing a Superfight with GSP is a whole different story. Of course we would all love to see that. But who do you think his next opponent should be if it is in the Middleweight division? 6. Tim Boetsch 7. Brian Stann 8. Alan Belcher 9. Yushin Okami 10. Chris Weidman
  2. No internet fights. Just dumb "Senior Members" who have no idea what they are talking about and instead of commenting something about the article or the fight last night they choose to pick internet fights. What a bunch of tools. No wonder their only status in life is a "Senior Member" in a UFC forum. Clowns!!
  3. Big Tito fan? Did you read the article or plagiarise it like you did with my other article Georgelebrun? If you would of read the article you would of seen I wrote there was a lack of effort from both sides. Other than that I said is was classless for Forrest to run out of the ring again like a little girl pouting, then try to make up for it by joking around. Your 5 year old attention span wouldn't of caught that though seeing how you can't even read a whole 30 second article. Georgelebrun, you are a joke and a disgrace to MMA. You know absolutely nothing about it. I would school you in an argument anyday. Your opinions on an entire night of fighting is summed up in 2 or 3 sentences. Let me ask you something. Would you still respect Kevin Iole or Dave Meltzer if they wrote their articles on Yahoo UFC in 2 sentences? No. Neither would Yahoo as those guys would be fired for turning in a 2 sentence article. I'm not saying I'm either one of those guys. What i am saying is I am educated enough to have an opinion about a fight that ranges more than 2 sentences. Don't be mad at me because your tiny brain can't concentrate past 2 sentences. Go take some Ritalin and then come back and read. Calm yourself down instead of running all over your house because you can't sit still.
  4. AGAIN, its better if you are signed up to this forum with a larger attention span than a 5 year old. We wouldn't want you to challenge that small mind of yours with reading for a whopping 30 seconds. Could put a strain on that brain of yours. Is every "Senior Member" in here a joke or what? What a bunch of clowns.
  5. Also "Classicboxer" Why don't you go post something on a BOXING website since your name implies it. Try saving that God awful sport. You obviously know nothing of MMA. You obviously have no education or attention span which is why you can read 45 second article about Kim Kardashian but you can't read one on a forum you are registered to.
  6. Georgelbrun you read the first two lines and copied it and wrote a shortened version of it on your own thread. Get the hell outta here with your b.s. Who are you trying to kid? "Senior Member" my ***. If you already know anything then why are you bothering reading other people's opinions since you know everything? Your a joke. I'm surpriised "classicboxer" has anything to say in an MMA forum. Let's look at this joke of a senior member. When did I sate my opinions were facts? Matter of fact I kept repeating this is my opinion. I'm sorry but your 1 sentence summary of a whole fight sucks. Both you and georgelbrun. Terrible Members with even worse opinions. Opinions that have nothing to do with MMA or last nights fights. Georgelbrun and classicboxer use their knowledge of MMA to tell other people in a forum to write a little less sentences. You guys both are a joke to MMA. I would school you anyday.
  7. So the UFC forum is NOT a place to post your opinion about the fight? "Senior Member" ha. What a joke. Sorry my opinion is more educated than 2 sentences. Apparently yours isn't or maybe you just can't read. Who knows. Whatever it s you should get it fixed and in the meantime delete your account and don't call yourself a senior member when you cant read a 45 second article but you'll take 45 seconds to post a reply and make a joke.
  8. Wow, so you took the time to come in here thought to yourself this is to long then decided to log in and post a reply saying you didn't read it. All the while you could of read it in almost the same amount of time. First off the guy walks around at 220-230 lbs so making light heavyweight WOULD be easier than middleweight. Secondly, you mean to tell me you as a fan and a "Senior Member" (which is a joke) would of rather seen Anderson Silva Vs Thales Leites than Anderson Silva Vs Chuck Lidell Or Rashad Evans? Get the hell outta here. You guys call yoursleves "Senior Members" and you can't read a 45 second article? And it is very apparent you have no clue about marketing since you quote say "why are you trying to coach the best fighter in the world?" I wasn't coaching anybody. I gave an opinion on what I think should of been the strategy as far as marketing. The only "coaching" i said was what I think Anderson should of prepared for which was Chael rushing in for the takedown.
  9. Anderson Silva Vs Chael Sonnen So right from the get go Chael dashes forward and locks up Anderson and continues the same pattern from last fight. Nothing to heavy, some elbows and strikes, Anderson throws a couple from the bottom and round over, Chael wins round. Same thing as last time right? Wrong? You could tell first of all that Chael wanted nothing to do with Andersons stand up which is why he dashed in so fast. Chael thought to himself " The hell with having Anderson do to me what he did to Forrest Griffin and Vitor Belfort" Chaels pride took over and he said to himself "I'm not going out like a chump like they did. I'm gonna do the exact same strategy again only this time I'll bring in a top BJJ expert into my training so I can learn how to defend against this stuff" And so that was his strategy. I'm not a MMA coach and I could figure out that strategy in 2 seconds. So what does Anderson decide to do for his training? Certainly he doesn't want to be taken down again over and over and have Chael grind out a victory. Anderson knew Chael this time. Last time he underestimated Chael big time because he was getting bored in the UFC beating everyone they put in front of his face. Not to mention these weren't even big stars so no block buster pay per views. Anderson was getting real frustrated and frankly bored with the competition. Yushin Okami? Demian Maia? Thales Leites? Really? Thales Leites? First off Dana White and the Fertitta's should of sat down with Anderson on a Marketing business level and discussed with him the potential money and expansion of the UFC by moving up to Light Heavy Weight. Forget sitting down with Anderson the fighter and the his fight contract. Sit down with him and Market him!! He's your best fighter of all time and you barely use him for what he's potentially worth. Dana says he only puts together fights the fans want to see. Yeah Right. Let me draw a list that some fight fans would of liked to see at that time. Then we'll get back to the fight at hand with Chael Sonnen. Anderson was most popular market wise and best fights were what? Dan Henderson, Rich Franklin, and Forrest Griffin. The James Irvin fight is the one that got everyone interested in seeing Anderson at Light Heavy Weight to begin with. Hendo and Franklin were fights in late 07 and early 08. Say he moved up to Light Heavyweight after those fights. Around the 2008 era think of the light heavyweights in that time that were so much fun to watch. Rashad Evans, Rampage Jackson (Which actually Rampage was Light Heavyweight title holder) Chuck Lidell had just beaten Wanderlei Silva. What about a match between Chuck and Anderson back then? Or even Wanderlei Silva at catchweight? He's famous for those. Or Rua? You mean to tell me Rua Vs Mark Coleman was better strategically than Rua Vs Silva? Especially if you didntt want Silva fighting for a belt. Would of been a perfect welcome back for Rua. Even Tito Ortiz. Remember I'm talking '07, '08. 4-5 years ago. No, instead they give him Leites and Miai. Not that those guys arent good, but your trying to build up the company not put it at a standstill. you were willing to pay Fedor a hell of a lot of money to get him into the UFC. Brock was your highest paid UFC athelete. So you mean to tell me that you wouldn't give Anderson, who's been with the UFC since '06 and undoubtedly proved himself, a huge payout to move up to light heavyweight and vacate the belt. Does the UFC realize how much money they missed out on when that group was going on? Which comes to present time and Chael fighting Anderson for the 2nd time. Anderson underestimated Chael the first time for the reasons I explained above. It wasn't going to happen again. When the fight first got announced that it was going to be in Brazil just gave the Spider that much more motivation to beat the crap out of Chael. After all the trash talking it was finally time. Well, as we talked earlier we knew what Chaels strategy was right off the bat. Notice the trainer said after the 1st round "Good warm up. Now its time to fight" Andersons strategy came out in the 2nd round. he wanted to catch Chael with a couple of "entertaining" shots like he did with Forrest Griffin. He wanted to make Chael look stupid in the stand up game. Andersons strategy going in was probably to hold chael down if he got on the ground with him long enough for the ref to stand them up again. Not really to play Chael's ground and pound game. He may have have a slight notion that Chael just slightly may be willing to stand with him. Anderson knew if that was the case then he could get of an entertaining knockout and go home with bragging rights. Chael threw that theory out the window when he dashed in and took it to the ground immediately. Notice Anderson wasn't really trying to do much from the bottom position and not much punches thrown from the bottom. Just a lot of defense and shell movements to keep Chael still and not let him get off the short elbows. I think Anderson should of came with an immediate uppercut or flying knee to Chaels face as soon as he saw him rush in. Start of the 2nd round Anderson immediately backs up when Chael rushes in again. Then later on Chael gets caught with a couple of those punches that he didn't want to eat. Chael tried a spinning back fist that missed. He slips. Anderson catches him with a knee to the body and some punches to the arms and face and its all over. I've seen Tito Ortiz and Brock Lesnar get punched way longer than that. I'm not a huge fan Yves the ref. He always seems so nervous about doing a good job that he forgets to do a good job. Yves, Steve Mazagatti and the girl ref need to go. First off out the of the 10 or 12 punches Anderson threw maybe 3 hit Chael and I believe they were on the forehead, maybe 1 face shot. Carwin threw what 76 punches down on Lesnar and Herb Dean kept it going cause Brock was moving. So was Chael. That's why Chael was so pissed after the fight. He wouldn't say it on the mic but you could tell. He at least went out classy also. If I were Chael I would of said " Good job to Anderson, I felt it was stopped a little short. I want the UFC to hurry up and give me 2 fights so I can beat those guys and come back and try for a 3rd time!!" Now tell me that wouldn't of got the crowd going and he would of went out like the Chael Sonnen he is and not the Chael Sonnen who was quiet and thinking about attending a BBQ at Anderson Silvas house. I could go on and on but....
  10. Patrick Cote Vs Cung Le So this fight tried to go toe to toe but the fans weren't having it tonight. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. So I had the fight 1 round to Cote and 1 round to Le. The 3rd round really signified who was going to win the fight. I think Cote thought he had won the first 2 rounds which is why it got awkward at the end. I remember thinking in the opening minutes of the 3rd round that if it keeps going like this it is going to be a tough one to judge. Then Cung Le got Cote with a couple of punches and a takedown or 2. That's what turned around the fight for me. Even Cote had to shrug a punch off and smile at one point. He knew he was losing that 3rd round. The bad part is when the bell rang Le jumped all over Cote like he knew he had already won the fight. Again, I believe Cote thought he had the first 2 rounds. Besides that when it is close like that both fighters need to do their respective dance and jog around the ring if front of the judges. Every fighter knows that. It's a way of respectively showboating and saying your okay and not hurt. But with Le hanging all over Cote I think it made Cote feel like "What the hell man, get off me." Not that Cote was trying to disrespect him but C'mon man when its a close fight hug later. or do a mutual hug. Not a hang on this guy and tell him how good of a job he did like he already knew he won. Did you see after Le was announced the winner Cote walked past Rogan and said something. Most likely he said "bullcrap" while shaking his head. Then Rogan had that smirk on his face. Cote came out ready to have a fight of the night performance (Anderson was looking for knockout of the night but we'll get into that later) but the audience I believe lacked on him and Le. I've seen those same performances by 2 bigger names and the crowds cheering the whole time. So crowd control for future fights starts to become a big factor to. Listen, nobody cares about a Cung Le Patrick Cote fight. There's no way to hype that up. I watch Strikeforce and have never seen Cung Le fight nor cared and neither does most of the MMA fans. What they should of done was put Rich Franklin Vs Patrick Cote to keep the card relevant and put Cung Le Vs Wanderlei Silva. You could of built up both fights with relevant people on each one. Instead they tried to give 2 irrelevant people a big stage and it bombed. Listen, I thought they did a great job in there and banged it out and gave it their all. I'm more or less speaking in terms of the crowd and interest in the fight though. A fighter can tell you all they want that the "crowd doesn't matter when fighting" and "If the crowd is booing that means your doing a good job in the fight" but I find it complete b.s. Putting on a good show is the most important thing. WWE and the NFL know this. Boxing took it way too far and basically became the government with its crooked ways. UFC will eventually do this as well as it has already begun. Let's hope they don't go to far though like what happened with the Dos Santos Vs Velasquez fight. I could go on and on but lets move on shall we....
  11. Tito Ortiz Vs Forrest Griffin Okay so from the beginning this fight looked like 2 bums who had no interest in fighting. Ortiz maybe I can give a little credit to but Griffin, no way. You know what Griffin reminded me of tonight? He reminded me of a guy who had a lot of good fights in the beginning of his career and made a lot of money with the UFC and sponsors plus undisclosed bonuses. I think he got a taste of the good life and enjoyed laying back and not working anymore. I think he wants to be healthy later on in life. I think he knows he is set for life and so is his family so why fight anymore? Why work anymore? He's been working his whole life and he never thought in his wildest dreams that he would be a millionaire and not ever have to work again. That's what he reminded me of tonight. His expressions on his face were like " man I cant wait till this is over" "I don't want to do this anymore" "I'm tired of getting punched in the face" He never looked the same again after the Anderson Silva fight. When Forrest Griffin was at his peak and winning the title from Rampage he had such joy and loving spirit in him and was so thankful. But now that he's earned his money, won the ultimate fighter, won a championship he's good now. And then to walk out of the ring and disrespect Tito and the UFC like that is uncomprehensible. When have you ever heard of Dana White running after someone to tell them get the hell back in there. Then Forrest tries to make himself out like "oh I wasn't going anywhere, it was all fun and games" Meanwhile he makes himself look even more like a **** when he grabs the mic from Joe and interviews Tito. You could tell Tito was trying to go out with some dignity and good ole Forrest have to have his little temper tantrum and steal the show. How stupid he must of felt for walking out when he heard Bruce Buffer call out his name as the winner. If I were a judge I would of scored Tito the winner just based on lack of interest, effort and the 2nd walkout tantrum. Good job Tito for taking the high road and keeping your mouth shut and not whining too much about your injuries. Tito, 1 question? Do you understand that we are tired of hearing you whine everytime you lose about how you gave it your all and you gave the ufc your all and your back problems and blah blah blah. I could go on and on but lets move on shall we.....
  12. Anderson Silva Vs Chael Sonnen So right from the get go Chael dashes forward and locks up Anderson and continues the same pattern from last fight.
