    Nice boost for the doomed UFC 178 card, though in a weird way, I'm sad this fight is on that particular show. I would've much preferred seeing it have the possibility for five full rounds. Since we...

    Can't have these two getting heated at a press conference, it'd be embarrassing to see that PR guy easily hold them apart

    Well, there's another thin card torpedoed by injuries. Mighty Mouse vs. Cariaso isn't going to draw flies on PPV.

    I've never heard Goldberg call anything besides the UFC, so it's going to be odd hearing his voice on an NFL broadcast. That said, as the release notes, FOX has five main broadcast teams and then...

    Re-reading this thread was a nice trip down memory lane. It's even funnier with the hindsight of Cain destroying Dos Santos in their next two fights.

    It really comes down to that second round. I agree that GSP clearly won the 3rd and 5th, while Hendricks clearly won the 1st and 4th. Hendricks lands the big shots early in the 2nd and were it not...

    Maybe the simplest change to the scoring system wouldn't be to change the scoring itself but to simply get the judges a better seat. Forget this 'sitting cageside' nonsense...get them in a...

    Good matchup, plus I like the storyline of 'Davis is the only non-Brazilian who can consistently win in Brazil.' Let's see if Glover can break the streak! Between this fight and the Aldo/Mendes...

    So with Chandler losing the title, maybe that enacts some clause in Alvarez's Bellator deal that we didn't know about that gives him a possible out? You'd surely think that would've been something...

    I find it too hard to fault Jones for his DQ loss as well. Literally nobody considers that an actual defeat --- while Jones indeed did throw 12-to-6 elbows, we've seen lots of cases of guys throwing...

    Diaz is going to get KTFO



    Could the UFC simply make Silva/Diaz the main event and then schedule a title fight as the co-main? That'd be a pretty simple way to get two five-rounders on the...

    Exactly same result, Hendricks by decision. Both guys throw bombs at each other for five rounds but Hendricks scores enough takedowns to win it.

    The Zombie has been wracked by injuries. He only fought once in 2012 and once in 2013, he hasn't been inside the cage in over 14 months and he doesn't have anything lined up. I dunno if his career...

    To think Rumble wasted all those years killing himself to get down to 170 and 185 when he's looking this good at his (sorta) natural weight class.

    Even if Cormier loses here, he'll still get tons of slack due to his knee injury and taking the fight on relatively short notice (two months doesn't seem that short, but we're in the era of the...

    I think Poirer would give Conor a big wakeup call. I remember being down on Poirer following his loss to the Zombie, yet time has shown that there's no shame in losing to Jung (or Cub Swanson). ...

    Man, it's a shame this one was on Fight Pass since that was one of the best cards of the entire year. The fights were exciting enough on their own with lots of finishes and gutsy performances, and...

    Bad news for Cerrone/Khabib

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/cowboy-cerrone-vs-khabib-nurmagomedov-171509591--mma.html

    Literally 20 minutes after they'd signed a contract, Nurmagomedov blew his knee out. Yikes. Hopefully the...

    The only flaw in this plan is that if McGregor and Nelson both end up progressing as expected and become title contenders, their eventual title bouts will have to be in the USA. It'd be unfair...

    I can believe it, we'll see the UFC debuts for Bill Anderson and Fedor Volkov against each other in February.

    Cariaso's claims to fame: he's the last guy to beat Mizugaki back when both were bantamweights, he took Michael McDonald to a split-decision loss at UFC 130 and he's on a three-fight win streak...

    Interesting matchup here. Normally I'd always pick against the guy coming off such a gigantic layoff and coming off so many injuries, but I've never been that impressed with Mizugaki. He hasn't...

    Correia/Baszler has indeed been moved to 176, though the Green/Trujillo and Formiga/Makovsky bouts have been shifted to the Fight Night show in Maine on August 16th. And if the threat of a card...

    Faber/Caceres seems like a huge mismatch but in theory, it made sense since Alex was a borderline top-10 bantamweight and Faber's already bought almost everyone else at 135. And hey, good on Caceres...

    The thing that keeps Edgar/Penn from being 'the worst decision ever' was that Edgar clearly whooped BJ's ass in the rematch. If Edgar had gotten killed in the rematch then yeah, you can say it's a...
