Posted Wednesday November 21, 2012, About: George doesn't need to fight Silva
I prefer to see GSP fighting Hendricks and the Spider fighting Weidman.
I agree with what you say, all of them would get smashed today as they were.

But bear in mind the question was if they were starting their careers today. Meaning that you would choose the guy you believe would have the best raw ability, along with today's quality of training and camps, to be able to compete.

I actually like Jim's pick over mine, but I simply didn't think of Mezger.

She'll get into my closed guard?

I don't have a logic counter argument on this one.

There's just something that makes me uninterested in women's MMA, even though it's the same sport.

I agree. And I personally don't think there's a place for women's MMA. I really don't.

A nurse could fill in for the heart surgeon. Optimism and dedication can go a long way. Oh wait.

Or that.

It's not the same thing at all.

The best example would be that of a guy who is going to get promoted. He is sick today, so your boss calls you and gives you the promotion instead.

It's a championship on the line, not a regular fight.

Bah, Jim beat me to the punch :)

He offered to fight A light heavyweight, not the champion

Physical problems/ injuries, lack of time to prepare, would be the most convenient justifications.

Shogun also turned the fight down.

Maia, Leites, ...

Giving a LHW title shot to Vitor Belfort is a joke.

Kudos for him for stepping up though.
Posted Friday August 03, 2012, About: Cormier vs Mir
JDS weighed in at 239 and Mir at 261, for their fight.
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: Cormier vs Mir
I like Mir, even though he clearly went overboard with some of the comments directed at Lesnar, back in the day.

While I do think that his intelligence (for a fighter, at least), knowledge and articulate speech will do him good either as a coach or as a commentator, I do agree that he has always been missing something.

I mean, the guy isn't a small HW but fact of the matter is that he struggles against larger foes.
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: BJ PENN
BJ is all-time top LW in MMA. I could see him returning to the top of the LW division.

At WW I don't like his chances as much, more so if we consider all the hesitations he had in coming back.

I am also afraid his best days are behind him.
Posted Tuesday July 31, 2012, About: Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva?
Diaz is an excellent fighter... at WW.

I don't see him having any realistic chance against an elite Middleweight with a huge reach advantage. That's Silva.
Posted Friday July 27, 2012, About: Hector Lombard
His body certainly doesn't look 100% natural.
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: Who Is the Greatest of All Time?
Jackie Chan and Jet Li also would beat Anderson Silva, Bones and JDS.

Without even trying too hard.
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: Who actually trains??
I think Jacare is the #1 MW grappler.

I didn't consider Roger because he's been fighting above.

Palhares is great but he doesn't have the all-around positional excellence that Jacare has.

I had the pleasure of watching Weidman vs Galvao at Barcelona! (ADCC)
Weidman didn't do too badly, but to be honest he had little formal BJJ training coming in.

I think Weidman is one of the top MW grapplers, but the same way Galvao outclassed him, I see Jacare doing the same.

Still, Weidman has tremendous upside, something that the other divisional grapplers haven't (they've peaked, for the most part).
