    What a fucking joke. I get it. The UFC is struggling a bit, and they want to bring in some ratings with Sonnen's mouth, but Sonnen has done absolutely nothing at LHW, and is getting a title shot because of his smack talk. It sets a bad precident.

    Henderson gets punished for getting injured, after giving the UFC one of the best fights in it's history. Machida gets punished for turning down a short-notice fight, after he literally fought for his title shot. Chael gets rewarded for talking shit, and coming off a loss. There's some logic for ya.

    Jones via whatever he wants. Pointless fight.
    Is it April? This has to be a joke. I rarely disagree with the decisions the UFC makes, but this is just silly.

      Yeah, it's pitiful, and a huge waste of time. Sonnen's mystique was shattered in his rematch with Silva. He can still cut a hell of promo, but I doubt even half of his backers are buying into his schtick this time. Most must realize he's going to get destroyed against Jones. Jones is basically like Silva, with a longer reach, and far better wrestling.

      They're also trying to save TUF, which is pointless. Lesnar couldn't even save that show. It's as stale as stale can get, and needs to be restructured. It's been the same shit since TUF1. A bunch of faceless meatheads in a house, getting into arguments, and pulling pranks on each other. I wouldn't be surprised if the fighters are handed a script to stick to, once they make it into the house.

      I've got a hunch this whole deal was demanded by the folks at FOX, to try and churn out some ratings.

      And yeah, it goes down in April.

        Dude, you don't support a company that says something like that about you.

              Damn, I'm good.

              Carwin blew his knee out. Nelson needs an opponent for the TUF finale. I say Hunt, if he's healthy.

                Bigfoot Silva would be interesting.

                      It has been alright so far. Can't wait for Kampman/Hendrix and GSP/Condit.
                      I couldn't believe Cote got rocked for the first time in his career. Lucky (or not) for him Sakara was to eager to get the win and DQ'd.

                      BTW, will Canada go on National Suicide watch if GSP loses?

                      • St.Pierre and Hendricks would be very interesting. Hendricks could easily ko him.

                          Looks like the UFC is fucking over Hendricks and giving Diaz a title shot.

                              Lol where have you been? Rhonda Rousey is one of the hottest things in mma right now.

                                They're in a tough spot with GSP. Dana wants him to fight Silva, and GSP wants to fight Diaz. It's a "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours", kind of deal. With all the potential money involved, Hendricks isn't even in the conversation.

                                Cyborg got popped for roids, and Gina is probably making far more money in Hollywood right now, so she's probably done. It's all about Ronda Rousey these days. She's a Silver Medalist in Judo, and has won all of her fights via armbar. She's also pretty hot for a fighter, so she's very marketable as well. I also think Dana is fucking her. He sure warmed up to WMMA pretty fast, once he started hanging around Rousey.

                                She's good, but the problem still remains, that there aren't too amny women fighters out there, with high level skill sets. If Ronda loses her debut, I wouldn't be surprised if they just squashed it.
