What, Silva killing GSP is off? nm, that doesn't mention the time frame of the fight
According the Dana's interview with Ariel Helwani super fight isn't whats next GSP is requesting the Diaz fight. I assume that means its next for him period. GSP never seemed sold on the Silva fight and he shouldn't be he isn't lasting 25 minutes with Anderson and that size advantage on top of his striking skill.
I am not even much of Penn fan and I hope he murders MacDonald
GSP is such a pussy, totally dodging Silva. He should just admit he want to wait until Silva is washed up before taking the fight.
Penn, Submission, round 1.
Just re-mentioning it here. Starting in January we'll be doing a new Sherdog MMA fantasy league. So if you are not in the current one(there's like 4 of us still filling out picks), shit's gonna get real in a couple weeks.
OR!!!!!!! Should we set it up starting with Dos Santos/Velasquez on December 29th? I don't know if they'll have us picking the Dream/OneFC/Glory NYE show or not. If so I'd kind of like to get it included in the real picks. Otherwise we're probably waiting for the Jan 12 SF card, if that even happens and goes up for picks. Or the Jan 19th UFC show.
What we thinks? Enough posters here want in that it'd be worth doing for UFC 155 on the 29th?
Nice to see bj looking pumped for the fight. Just something about mcdonald i don't like
Yeah, I think the 29th card is a good place to start us out.
Really? GSP is running his mouth? You think he's an egomaniac? lol, come on man.
Over the past 10 years, and the ups and downs of his career, you would be hard pressed to find many people that would call GSP anything more than a humble (boring) champion. Sure, Dana pokes him in the ribs every once in awhile, puts a mic in his hands, and tells him to say something scathing like, "I am not impressed by your performance"... but seriously man, your attacking this argument from the wrong angle.
I don't give a shit about GSP anymore. He lost me in 2010, when he lost the ability to finish fights. For that reason alone... who cares if he ever fights Anderson or not.
So, Okami is banging Chael's mom, right?
Getting really tired of Sonnen. Was fun when it began, but so tedious now.
Chael seems like a pretty cool dude when he's not channeling his pro wrestler shtick. I don't mind the pro wrestler thing either really...it just gets a bit tiresome when you hear his script more then once.
Forever love me some Chael. Nate Diaz forgot that you don't get the extra 1 pound buffer for title fights at the weigh ins, oops.
I've been slacking on picks and interest in MMA the past few months. I felt the UFC's have gotten stale with lackluster cards, but I'll try to re-up my game with the new year and try to make picks with you guys again. I was tarv in the group. I'll make picks for tonight to brush the rust off lol.
Where are you guys making picks at? I might jump into it as well.
Sherdog. I'll post new group and password info in a couple weeks. We're starting fresh with UFC 155, Velasquez/Dos Santos, on the 29th.
Watching Bellator from last night right now. Zoila Gurgel just got fucking steamrolled by Jessica Eye. Rocked her on the feet then choked her to sleep with a standing arm triangle. A wildly underused submission BTW. Seems like it would set you up for a lot of potential stuff without high risk.
Wow. Somehow I never knew the championship fighters had to make weight without the extra pound. Hope that doesn't fuck Diaz's cardio over for the fight.
BTW this entire season of TUF was a bore and half the fights were awful and went to decision that were just wrong. Terrible season.
But the last fight...whoooo boy. Awesome elbow.
Tapping that close to the bell has gotta sting.
Dennis Siver looks amazing at 145.
Damn, I was hoping Siver would get rocked just to hear his corner scream at him.
It sounded like Hitler was giving a speech cageside while he was getting murdered by Cerrone.
Definitely one of the most entertaining FW fights I've seen.
Lolol, 24. 25. 26. No one takes an ass woopin like Nam Phan.
Edit: NASTY knees to the body, Levesseur is like the world's worst wannabe blanket. I've never seen someone get their ass beat so bad failing takedowns.

That was truly a one sided ass whopping. Gotta say Siver looks pretty good at 145.
Edit: that Trujillo guy is a beast!

Wow, that guy looks mean. Great fight by Trujillo
That fight was terrible.
I mean yeah Abel looked absolutely fantastic, but he might as well have been beating up a crash test dummy.

Great fights so far. This might end up as the best card of the year.
Holy shit. Martinez just took a shit ton of damage and came back and kept throwing. Excellent start
God damn. That guy has some great standup. That was fantastic.
Card of the year is not disappointing so far. My head coach had to go to a play at the theatre tonight with his wife and family. He is one angry dude right now. Also.
No idea why some fighters don't go all in at the end when you've obviously lost without a KO.
I would like to thank Bantamweight for starting off the greatness of tonight, and then completely killing the buzz.
Most people are here it looks like!
I think Ben Henderson destroys Diaz.
No middle of the road tonight, everything is great or fucking awful.
Also, I think any ref who separates a clinch with 10 seconds left in the round should be fired on the spot.
Well, lost my first boost of the night already...
EDIT: Make that my first 2 boosts

Never been KO'd? Thugjitsu says no.
Yves Edwards rocked Jeremy Stevens ugly...
Going with swick, penn, gustafson an diaz for the main card. Probably wrong on penn though
fuck diaz, i hope he dies. other than that I like your picks.
we're in #swampdonkey for the show boys.
God damn when did Joe Rogan gain 10 lbs of head fat? Dudes head is fucking humongous! Never in my life watched MMA - but its free tonight and no college football so I'm watching tonight for the first time ever. Pretty intelligent by the UFC guys to make this one free to entice new viewers like myself.
Brown is on a roll.
BJ is getting demolished like Jones v Shogun.

This is hard to watch. Looks like Rory isnt finishing him on purpose to keep him there to take damage.
That was sad to watch. I can honestly say i dont want to see bj fight again after that.
Well that was disheartening. My new wishlist item is to watch that cocky fuck MacDonald get roflstomped.
Bleh, yet another guy hanging around past his prime. Feel bad for BJ. His record is already far worse than his talent would indicate.
Really wish I understood his need to move up to 170lbs...
He used to hold the belt at 170, clearly he is still capable of standing toe to toe with the new generation of 170 fighters!!!
Anyone honestly think he would fare much better if he went back down? I cant see it happening
Rory was HUGE next to BJ, that match really had no business happening. BJ has heart for days, but no drive/enthusiasm any more. I think he would have been much better vs Henderson, Maynard, Lauzon, hell even Edgar. He can't fight against super WW's, Hughes was NOT a big WW at all, nor is GSP. Sad to see that murder on tv, Rory showboating made it worse.
Long in the tooth? He's 33 you fucking moron.
Anderson Silva is 37. Randy Couture held the HW title at 45.

Not saying he will win, but I gotta root for Benson. Gotta root for the Seattle guy.
Penn and McDonald fight was most interesting so far.
Diaz getting clowned. It's a great day.
Well, this isn't going anything like I was expecting it too. Ben is dominating the striking, which should have been Diaz's strongest aspect. Diaz needs a finish, and I just don't see that happening.
Lol at Diaz giving the finger...major fail by Fox.
Yeah, you'd think on a network with shit like Family Guy that they would've been ok with that. It's also weird when the round ends and it's instant commercial break.
Henderson is dominating the shit out of this match.
Agreed Nate is just outmatched here. Was expecting a closer fight.
Well that was a good 25 minute ass beating.
I haven't enjoyed UFC much in quite a while but watching Benson make Diaz his bitch sure was fun.
And the other way around? AS has already stepped up to LHW on relatively short notice. This is why he is considered the best, and why all GSP can do is talk about one day wanting to be the best. Until he mans ups and takes fights he isn't the overwhelming favorite to win, he won't be in the running for GOAT.
On other note, was a great card top to bottom. And like someone mentioned, it's always great to see one of the douchebag Diaz's get their ass handed to them. That's pretty much how I think GSP vs. Diaz will play out. And after it's done we can hear how GSP is just a great round winner but Nick Diaz is a better fighter.
Finally someone drops a diaz brother on his ass 10 seconds after he does one of his usual shitty taunts.
Fuck Diaz and Cesar Gracie. After shit talking Caio Terra the way they been, they can go fuck themselves.
I am fully aware that it will be at a catchweight, probably 180, but Anderson will still walk into the cage at least 10-15 pounds heavier. At least.
Please don't get me wrong in all this and defending GSP or that I think he is GOAT. I think Anderson is head and shoulders above him. In order for GSP to win that fight he would need every advantage available to him. So my point in stating if it was the other way around he would be more likely to take the fight still holds true. If GSP came in as the bigger fighter (naturally bigger) then he would stand a much better chance. However, going in against a fighter who I feel is already better than him, and who would have a significant size advantage, does not bode well for GSP. I think GSP is fully aware of this, and before he takes that step up in competition he would like to finish some things at 170 first. He has even said in interviews that if he did take the fight he would want to put on some serious mass and possibly make a permanent move. But to say he is ducking him is ignorant. I don't see how you can duck someone when it is a move UP in weight class to fight that person.
Overall great card tonight. My picks were pretty much shit and I went 3 fights in a row which I Boosted and lost. Good thing we didn't start a new pool on this event!
Just watched. Great event overall. Bendo looked amazing. Nate proved again the Diaz bros are fucking idiots who can't make adjustments. Siver is a monster at 145.
But I really want to talk about Matt Brown. I've been banging this drum for awhile now. Hated him on TUF, they made him look like a redneck Diaz brother on that show. As soon as he's off the show you see nothing but respect from him, comes off great. But that is all beside the point. The man deserves some kind of lifetime achievement bonus from the UFC for making every single fight he is in exciting. 4 years, 14 fights, 9-5 record in the UFC. And I can't think of one fight that wasn't entertaining as fuck. Gone to decision 3 times(2-1) and even those were exciting.
He's a midcard fighter, but he might be my favorite fighter in the sport right now. He forces people to engage like no one else, makes it impossible for the fights to be boring. I'd love for Ben Saunders to get back to the UFC and fight him. He's another guy that is all attack all the time.
edit: Now that I'm caught up
What Fox hid last night.
And apparently Bendo fights with a toothpick in his mouth. Something he's done before. I have to imagine he'll get a talking to for this.
And for anyone curious about Scotty Jorgensen finally being totally white...

I sat next to Jens Pulver for this one. All of the fights were fun on this card. Rory is a strange dude and there was definitely a weird vibe in the audience when he entered.
