    UFC 166 was probably my most recent gold standard of PPV shows. Cain/Dos Santos II, Gilbert vs. Diego, Gonzaga and Dodson both with quick one-round knockouts...terrific card.

    Counting prelims,...

    What has Hunt done to deserve a fight with Arlovski? Hunt is 1-3-1 over his last five fights, and looked so bad against Stipe that he should've retired on the spot.

    LOL Ryan Bader

    The sad thing is, the LHW division is so thinned-out right now that Bader (who's on a...

    Can't believe I'm even writing this but....title shot? Seriously, a four-fight win streak in the very thin HW division is about all it takes, plus knocking out Browne adds a legit top-5 name to...

    My only anti-Weidman moment was when he was pumping his arms and smiling like a douchebag when Anderson was on the ground screaming with a broken leg, and then proudly saying he'd "trained for" how...

    This is really quite an extraordinary misstep on the UFC's part. I have yet to read even ONE article or opinion piece that paints this Reebok deal as a good thing --- it has been 100 percent...

    The thing about Edgar and Faber is that they have very similar styles, so either this fight was going to be a real throwdown with two guys countering everything, or it was going to be kind of...

    Realistically, Frankie is right. Mendes has already lost to Aldo twice, so if Aldo defends his title, Edgar is the logical next contender since he's only lost to him once.

    While the three of them are admittedly different kinds of strikers, come on, it's absurd to say that Anderson (the best MMA striker of all time) and Machida don't have one-strike knockout power. ...

    I personally think Edgar will win the fight but those odds are ridiculous. I'm pretty confident this fight will be a decision, and my choice of Edgar winning is only maybe 55-45.

    Damn, I'm...

    The HW division is thin enough as it is, especially since the champ is so often on the injured reserve. Relegating literally half of the best-known heavyweights to a "seniors division" doesn't help...

    So let me get this straight, he's in a serious auto accident, falls down or 'collapses' afterward, and we're blaming brain damage from fights? Why aren't we blaming, I dunno, THE CAR ACCIDENT he was...

    I think the "I hope you're kidding" jibe was meant in the sense that I'm sure many fighters (at least in the major camps) probably already have a physical therapist on hand, so this is hardly a...

    Given that Brady and James have been stars since 2001 and 2003, yeah, no surprise they're more well-known than Trout, a guy who's only been in MLB for three seasons. A fairer comparison would be to...

    Agreed. This is a dream matchup that could've easily headlined even a primetime FOX show. Why the UFC is burning it on what will be a little-seen show on a Saturday morning is beyond me.

    The problem with guaranteeing the non-selected pool fighters a fight "next month" is that what happens to the next month's "pool" in that weight division? Do one of the fighters from that pool...

    Not a bad replacement. Joanna J is an ideal headliner for these continental European shows.....UFC has a Polish champ, might as well take advantage of it.

    Marvin's idea has loads of flaws, yet I could actually see it working for an undercard. If you get a scenario where, say, the #8-14 fighters in a division are the 'pool of six,' then a couple of...

    Wow, I have to think Cerrone dodged a bullet here. And really, the UFC did too from a marketing standpoint --- Khabib vs. Dos Anjos isn't exactly a major PPV buy-generating headliner.
