I want Hughes to win, but man he's gonna have to put some work in. I think Silva beats Liddell.

HDNet is having Fedor fight on the 31st. I'm gonna have to find a place to watch that too.

Hey whats your beef with the UFC?

Dana White. nuff said. It used to be about who was the baddest guy in each weight class period. Now it's all about how Dana White can make his pockets fatter. I know several guys who have fought in the UFC now and several guys who used to beat them like little girls at practice. It's not a matter of who's the baddest mo fo it's whose arse you kiss and what will it do for The guys on top. It's like any other corporation now. It's fun to go sit and watch with the guys but I don't get too crazy about it anymore.

I don't wanna believe you, but yeah, Dana White is a tool. I think the stuff that Mark Cuban could really give him a run for his money, and even run a better organization than the UFC.

Liddell won, I had him losing, but he fought a great fight. He really took it to Silva. Georges straight stomped on Hughes. I got in an argument with a kid at a new years eve party about Georges got lucky, and Hughes game was off. I'm not a big fan of Georges, but damnit I respect him.

You know the WEC is owned by the UFC right? I love how the WEC has a 145 pound division. The little guys sure can hustle.

Everything is owned by the UFC!!! Yeah but the WEC guys seem more "real" yeah they're making money but it's like they're still fighting for something. A lot of the guys in the UFC act like they're owed something even when they lose. Look at Forrest when Jardine whipped his azz. I guess it just bugs me how unprofessional some of the guys act. I realize it's a fight and not baseball but I think it's ridiculous how immature some of these guys act.

Forest did fly off his rocker a bit after losing to Jardine, but did you see him beat Shogun? It was crazy, he was all cut up and bloodied, but just grinded out a win and ended up submitting him in the last minute of the fight. It was all heart and guts.

No I haven't honestly been watching. Well maybe he got some heat and grew up a little after that. I love the sport I just think it would be nice to see more professionalism.

The last fight I actually watched was Hammill and bisping. That fight was so badly rigged it made me sick.

Yeah, Hammil got screwed. That was a total screwjob, and Bisping had no class after the fight either. I just wanna see him get tooled whenever he fights again.


Big mean Brock Lesnar fights tonight. I'm pretty pumped. I think he'll tear it up.

anyone got a prediction on Griffin vs. Rampage?

I didn't like Rampage when he fought Lidell, at least what they chose to show of him....but have to say the show is making me hate him less....but I've liked Forrest since season one of the UFC show on Spike.

I'd like to see Brock get back in the ring, he was really quick for someone his size, I was impressed.

I think rampage wins this one pretty easily, there is nothing that forrest does better than jackson. I say 2nd knock out going to rampage. I like both of them, but I dont think griffin has a chance.

I watch the fights and then I like watching them train sometimes, but I channel surf and then flip back to it when the fights are on.
