    really disappointed Paulo dropped out of this one. Sonnen had him on the ropes for the better part of 2 rounds, but went for the shot and ended up getting tapped out by the ref(very questionable IMO with 5 seconds left) Anyways, IMO Sonnen could've got the best of him again.

    Is there a UFC card that hasn't included Clay Guida in the last 6 months? I know I'm exaggerating, but it seems like he's fought every card recently. (not that I'm complaining)

    Florian vs Luazo should be a great fight. What's with the asterisks next to Gray Maynard's name?

    For those that don't know, This season of TUF is different. There will be 32 fighters competing for a spot to even get into the house. The first two episodes will be full of fights to cut down to 16 fighters that will stay at the house.

    Coaches are Rampage and Forrest Griffin.

    That's good, because that is the weakest division they have IMO...worse than the heavyweights

    And yet has the best pound for pound fighter in the world right now IMO.


    I agree though it is a weak division, not quite as bead as HW though IMO.

    Hopefully theu can re-sign Timmy, and AA. You never know Fedor is technically a free agent again. I would bet the EliteXC deal with CBS(who owns Showtime anyway) might sway either Tim or AA or Fedor. I recently heard they are going to try and stack that division because of hopefully wanting to showcase their cash-cow Kimbo down the road, who IMO would be completely destroyed by any game HW with any kind of technical ability.

    I always felt he was overrated. I still can't believe Brandon Vera lost to him.

    I agree, I think Coutore exposed him for what he really was, just a very tall brawler with reach. Very little skill.

    I still believe it'll be EliteXC. Look for him to fight a can and then Kimbo, which I would call a can also. It would be an interesting bout. if not XC then HDnet Fights I would guess.

    i think that happens to be the issue with most of his fights, fighters see the tape and training/conditioning level and you see an overrated fighter. The guy has heart though and that can overcome......sometimes.

    As i said earlier i bet it wil be EliteXC, unless HDnet Fights really think they have a chance in court with the UFC over Randy. then they'll throw Fedor some good money ,not near as much as the UFC but they will sweeten it with Fedor being able to fight in Sambo and choose his opponets after Randy or something like that. JMO.

    Elite XC from Saturday

    Cung Le took it to Frank Shamrock. I for one was so happy to see him get his butt handed to him. Other then that the show was so-so.
