MMA  > General MMA  > 5 questions for you guys.

1. Since when does losing your last 2/3 fights and beating Matt Hamill get you a title shot? (Ok rampage won but he really lost that fight to Machida i think.)

2. Who has the best ring girls in mma. I say m1.

3. Does any one actually watch dream? i do

4. Who should Shinya Aoki fight next. Im going to say Antonio McKee.

5. Will Todd Duffee vs. Nick Gaston be a good heavy weight fight?

I will give it a shot...

1. When Bones quits ducking Rashad then maybe the #1 contender will actually get his title shot. Until then does it really matter who Bones decides he will face? Believe it or not this might actually haunt him for years if he doesn't fight Rashad and beat him.

2. From what I see I have to agree with you.

3. I don't watch it very often.

4. I would like to see him against Kenflo... I think it would be an interesting matchup... Aoki is superb on the ground and Kenflo likes to fight on the ground....

5. It could be... Duffee has a lot to prove. He is coming off to horrible losses, especially the KO by Overeem!!!

1. Bones wrecked Rua. Rua wrecked Machida. Machida wrecked Evans. Evans beat Rampage. Rampage beat Machida. None of the elite guys have a streak going - but former champs stay near the top of the line.

2. UFC. Love Arianny, happy with Britney, but I miss Logan Couture.

3. DREAM - I try to DVR some of them - but I don't care too much if I miss them.

4. Alvarez rematch.

5. Can only be a step up from the HW matches on SF's card tonight.

1. Since MMA's inception:) The sports history is rife with undeserved title shots, with people like Tamura getting a title shot coming off of a loss in a lesser organization, and guys like Brock (yeah I said it:) getting a title shot after beating a high top 10 fighter in Heath Herring.

I think Rampage won, in the 10 point must, by the way.

2. That is a tough one. M-1 Has some beatiful ring girls, but it is tough to mess with Arianny and Brittney, in terms of pure attractiveness. I have to believe that the M-1 ring girls are smarter though. So it all depends on what you consider "better" to entail ;)

3. I do, but I have no HDNet so I have to wait for the videos to hit YouTube though. Quality fights, especially at the lighter weights. Wiki Akiyo, Ishida, Aoki, Caol Uno, Bibiano Fernendez, Hellboy Hanson and Aoki are all fun to watch, and several of them could easily compete with the mid tier of talent in the UFC.

4. I love the idea of the McKee fight. McKee says he can control anyones hips from in their guard and not get tapped, but that theory should definitly get tested if he fights with Aoki.

Alvarez would be a good fight too, to see how he has improved since their first outing.

5. Should be a slugfest, I expect to see Duffee standing with his hand raised after a fun to watch fight.

1. Rampage beat Machida.2. UFC without a doubt. Last UFC even I literally came in my pants when they showed Palmer and Celeste walking around.3. I try to, but the fights are like 3 in the morning and I don't have HD Net.4. Rematch against Gsot.5. While it lasts yes.

Why are people debating the Road Rage/Machida fight?....ROAD RAGE HIMSELF SAID MACHIDA BEAT HIM....even if the judges awarded the fight to Road Rage....I guess the keyboard warriors here think they know more about it than the guy that was IN the fight...

Well, I think the bigger debate is the the judging.

Under the 10 point must, the fight was a close one, don't you agree?

1. Road Rage isn't getting the title shot on merit....he is getting it because the real contenders were scheduled to fight other people when Jones thought he was going to take time off for the surgery...

2. A lot of them are hot and some of them only look hot because they are standing next to dudes that get punched in the face for a living....

3. somebody does...not really sure why...

4. should be looking for his shortest route to being a contender

5. eh...

well, yeah it was close but I am gonna side with the perception of the guy taking the punishment over some people watching from a worse view than my couch. Judges need to be above cage level, and have monitors to show different angles...

and the 10 pt must is only relevant to a W-L record....but when speculating on the future based on past events, you gotta look at the actual winner, not the winner on the score cards....if Road Rage is saying that Machida was kicking his **** and would have won in a 5 rd fight, I am going to concur that Machida was the winner for the purpose of speculating on what that means for future fights...Machida stands a FAR greater chance of beating Jones than Road Rage does.

I couldn't agree more. Excellent points.

I'm glad you came back, hope you stick around.

I don't have a clue.

The thread is gone, just disappeared. It had all the results and at least 6 comments.

Really strange...
