    I think it all goes together. Rampage was the biggest name. There was no other major competition for viewers. It had a lot of NFL promotion beforehand. Be interested see what the next one does.

    Rewatching it I thought it was a lot closer. Dodson easily won R1 and MM R4 &5. R1 & 3 were razor thin so if you gave those to Dodson you gave him the win. And if think a point should have been...

    Closer to 14 or 15 months. Since he made just under a mil from the Gonzaga fight I don't think he could have made as much as was offered him during his holdout. Plus he would have had to beat Nog to...

    I really liked Hewitt's 2 wrestling books. He even comments on some of Nash's posts. What I meant by Nash being the only one, is that while Shannon and Hewitt cover history their focus is very much...

    I don't see why GSP has to leave the division to fight Silva at, lets say 175 lb catchweight? GSP gaining 5 pounds isn't going to prevent him from fighting at 170 again, and 10 pounds is a huge cut...
