    Swanson is a top-five featherweight on a six-fight win streak and he looked he didn't even belong in the same sport as Edgar. Frankie absolutely dominated him...those last three rounds were as...

    Pretty decent show, if marred by a few too many decisions and some questionable judging --- how the hell any judge awarded Vick the first round was beyond me. The PVZ/Curran fight was terrific, go...

    Lesnar is King Hippo --- a few punches to the stomach and he's finished. Who are these mythical 'wrestling-only' heavyweights for Lesnar to supposedly feast on? The large majority of HWs are just...

    Pretty sure Fitch/Thiago didn't headline UFC 100

    Anyway, the UFC literally can't afford to superstack a card like this these days, given the insane number of events they're planning to run in 2015...

    * One PPV per month
    * One FS1 show every two months
    * One FS2 show every two months
    * Four FOX shows per year
    * The two TUF finale shows (one on FS1, one on FS2)

    That's 30 shows per year. ...

    All things being equal, Cain beats Werdum.

    A Cain who has at least 16 months of ring rust and injuries on him vs. Werdum? That I'm not sure about.

    This 1000x. It blows my mind that the UFC continues to make the same mistake over and over again. This isn't 2007, the "use TUF to hype the fight" doesn't work anymore. And hey, guess what helps...

    I like the idea of a champ being stripped of the belt if they can't defend within a year's time, but it's true that the 'interim' champ would be considered nothing more than a placeholder. The only...

    It used to be that virtually every fight announced for any big show got its own thread and some discussion about it. Now, there are literally too many shows to manage that. Hell, I only knew a...

    And he lost to all of those guys except old man Le. Even after he started going up against the big names and inevitably lost, the UFC always booked Bisping's next fight against a can or a declining...
  11. I've written this before about Bisping, but here...

    I've written this before about Bisping, but here it goes again....he is probably the most protected fighter in UFC history. The company was so keen on making him their major UK drawing card that...

    Can't say that the Fight Pass subscribers aren't getting their money's worth, since I think this show and the Ireland show might've been the two best UFC cards of the year. This one was nonstop...

    With Sportsnet buying the NHL rights, their weekends will be full of hockey for the next several months. Canada's awesome free ride for seeing basically every UFC event has come to an end.

    My argument was that Jacare should've gotten the shot ahead of Vitor in the first place.
  15. It's ridiculous that Jacare hasn't gotten a shot...

    It's ridiculous that Jacare hasn't gotten a shot already. The UFC should've subbed him in for Belfort.

    Really nice win from Aldo, I'd say this was his best overall showing in the UFC. Mendes gave it to him for 25 minutes, but Aldo gave even better back and won the clear decision. Kudos to Mendes for...

    I'm not a big boxing fan so perhaps those who are could tell me what the procedure is when a headliner gets injured. Is the card canceled? Is it moved to a cable network (Showtime or ESPN)? Also,...

    The whole point in increasing the number of titles was that 'every show would feature a championship fight.' Well, the UFC then tripled the number of shows they run per year, so we're right back to...

    The UFC has contracts with PPV providers, they can't just shift a card to regular TV. Cancel it yes, but not move it to another provider.

    Good matchmaking by the UFC in terms of protecting Conor. Siver is a legit opponent and would be a solid win....yet clearly a rung below any of the real top contenders at 145. Should be another...

    And there's another one-match PPV card that is made totally irrelevant by an injury in the main event. Not going to bother watching this show now.

    He can certainly beat Stephens and I very hesitantly took him over Cub. Still have to favour Edgar, Aldo and Mendes by a clear margin, however....unless McGregor punches them in the back of the head...

    There is a double standard between Barao and if his situation had happened to someone like GSP, since the UFC would just postpone the fight and still give St. Pierre the next title shot. They'd do...

    You'll notice the average age of those four guys when the UFC dropped them, plus their recent records over their last several fights. It's just like in any other sport...when a player gets too old...
