    Yeah, that occured to me as well. Aside from the "anything can happen" truism, this sure seems like a very rough night for Anderson. But at any rate, hats off to him for taking the fight.

    That seems on the mark, entirely. Diaz looked like Diaz, period. No surprises. He's got great cardio and a great chin, obviously, and that's worth plenty no matter who he fights. Is this fight at 170...

    It's tough to see Brock winning this, but weirder things have happened.

    I'm wondering: since this fight is coming up pretty fast, does Brock already have a full camp? Seems pretty short notice....

    Agree 100 percent. Going after a journalist is petty. Beyond that, Ariel isn't blessed with ESP or tarot cards: somebody leaked the story. All that Zuffa has done--in the short term--is make the...

    Sheesh ... Mir is a good pick, I know, but just personally I dislike the guy (his threats over the years to end his opponent's careers is tiresome tough guy talk), so I'll go with Pearson.

    It's awfully unlikely that Werdum or Jones are "scared" of any opponent. Both of them have faced very serious competition for a long time. Probably just a case of playing it smart, career wise....

    Vlad is on the money here (as he always is, come to think of it). Her emotional state is high reward/ high cost. She's wound way too frigging tight.

    I liked watching Jones as much as the next fan, I guess, but the guy is such a douche. I've lost interest--fairly or not, milage does vary--in watching him fight. Beyond that, one...
  11. UFC planning event in New York ... interesting story.

    Looks like Zuffa is betting on a favorable ruling.

    Just for fun: if the event goes forward, who...

    It did seem promoted a lot, though I didn't pay particular attention. Gotta give Conor this: he's going to make plenty of money for Zuffa and for himself (which he deserves--as does any other...

    It's true that Conor does seem pretty unconcerned about shots coming his way. He just maintains that forward pressure, period. He reminded me a bit of Chuck Liddell in that sense. Not in styles, but...

    I'll go with Chad. Just a hunch that his wrestling will be a monkey wrench in Connor's firepower.

    Frankie Edgar would be a great fight for the hardcores. He's quick and tough as nails. But that's probably too big a risk, as Zuffa has spent so much time/money on making Connor a "personality" as...

    Big numbers (apparently) for Bellator

    According to Bellator, the 138 card was a hit.

    I guess that means the Bellator...

    Yes, some of the undercard fights look really good. Pitbull is freaking excellent, and perhaps Chandler can bounce back. His first fight against Alvarez was time-capsule stuff.

    I'll go with Cain as well. Werdum, it's true, has gotten much better at all aspects. But unless something weird (verging on unbelievable) happens (like when Fedor dove TWICE into Werdum's ground...
