    I wanted to make a minor clarification. Simpson's agent confirmed that he wasn't cut, his contract expired and he wasn't offered a new one. They said the UFC was up front with him the whole time...

    Parsons, thanks for posting.

    A few things stood out to me in this blog:
    1. Joe Lauzon comes off incredibly likeable and down to earth. The combination of his last few fights and seeing him...

    Cormier's base just seems so strong. Guys like Hendo can be moved around the cage or taken off their base which I haven't seen anyone do to Cormier. He literally seems to be able to dictate where...

    I thought Chuck had a cake walk with Rashad. To that point Rashad hadn't shown much with his hands, and I didn't think he'd get Chuck down. His movement and willingness to commit to punches that...

    I'd like to see him fight Hunt, Barry, or Bigfoot. Any combination of Hunt, Barry, and Nelson would be fireworks. All three are similar in size, all have sick power, and Hunt and Nelson have...

    The lightweight tournament final between Marcin Held and Dave Jansen. Held is only 20 years old so he wasn't allowed to fight because the event was being held at a casino in Indiana. How that goes...

    Was looking forward to this fight the most tonight. Between the fight being canceled last night on Bellator and this cancellation tonight, I guess you can't even get excited for a card the day it...

    If Rory isn't willing to fight GSP then you have to keep him away from the actual contenders. The UFC can't afford Rory knocking off Nick or Hendricks. Condit makes sense, and if not Condit then...

    This is how I viewed the original question as well. If we're talking a pure size comparison, then "walking around weight" would be a better gauge than how much weight someone can cut for a fight. ...

    I can't pretend to be a definitive authority on reach either. I grew up a boxing fan, and have a boxing background, and when they started providing the linear reach stat I thought it provided a more...

    GSP has repeatedly said he walks around at 190 while I've read Anderson walks around between 220-230. Jones supposedly walks around at 235. Condit towered over GSP much like Silva would. A healthy...

    Bad matchup for Forrest. This is the perfect "name fighter" for the UFC to feed Davis to catapult him back into big fights. Unless Davis' striking vastly improves, I don't see him cracking the top...

    This just shows that there has never been a better time for a cross divisonal super fight. Silva vs. Jones should happen now as long as Jones gets past Hendo.

    Jones cleaned out the ultra...

    So Anderson would fight Rich again because he respects him, but has no interest in fighting Jon Jones because he respects him. Maybe "respect" has multiple meanings in Portugese...

    Happy that they chose not to tie up a title. I think having GSP and Cruz both on the shelf kind of shifted them away from that idea. I'm a fan of Nelson as a fighter and respect a guy who mostly...

    Wand's decline has been difficult to watch. I cringe every time he gets hit these days because I just don't feel like he can stand up to power punches anymore. I really hope he focuses on kicks,...

    I guess I can understand teammates not wanting to fight. The problem I have is if I'm a middleweight, and my aspiration is to win the middleweight title, would I go train with Anderson Silva? No, I...

    Really upset for Ellenberger. He's quickly become my favorite welterweight with his heavy hands and killer instinct, but his killer instinct really did him in tonight. Kampann is almost impossible...

    I like the Glover/Shogun fight from a stylistic standpoint, but as previously stated, Shogun just doesn't have much to gain from it.

    I'd prefer to see Lil Nog/Shogun II if Nog is healthy, or use...

    I don't see anyone mentioning Mark Hunt. I was on board with Hunt/Dos Santos b/c I thought it would be a better fight stylistically than JDS/Mir, but realize he didn't deserve it. Am I the only one...

    First name that popped into my mind. Imagine a 13 year old Mike Tyson walking into an MMA gym instead of a boxing gym. I think his quickness and explosiveness would have translated well into...

    You're going to get blasted a lot for your opinion and what most will perceive as "bitching," but I do understand your point and I think it's a good basis for discussion.

    The UFC seems to feel the...

    I'm glad someone recognized how absurd it was calling Lynch out. Even as a newb poster on here, I've been lurking since around 04/05 and I always look forward to his input.

    Anyway, a point I...

    How much did Aki make for his last fight? The only thing I can think that would justify a murderer's row of opponents like he's faced is that they think they're paying him too much to give him any...
