This is a cool fight. Howard is kind of overrated as a pure striker, but he is still a solid veteran with big power, and now that he has added in a little wrestling to his game he should be a solid gatekeeper. That said he is still a pretty beatable guy. Anyone with sharp hands can box him up, and high level grapplers can look good against him as well.

I've never seen laFlare fight but I'm always excited to see Howard compete.

Hendricks is just Kos-light in my opinion. I still think it is pretty easy to see Kos won their fight on Fox. I wish there was a legit contender out there for GSP, but I just don't think there is right now. He lost to Kondit too while I'm on the topic. I'm not saying he isn't a great fighter, but squeaking out decisions to guys GSP dominated does not speak well for your chances.

Don't we have a bet going for this fight? I know we made one but I can't recall the amount.

Weidman's wrestling still isn't as good as Chael's, and his grappling still isn't as good as Maia or Jacare's. The fact that he seems to have a combination of decent wrestling and decent submissions makes him a slightly dangerous task for Anderson, but the reality is that Anderson has 25 minutes to land that one big strike; one jab, one knee, one kick, one elbow, that is all it takes with this guy. I still don't think Chris will actually submit him, his best chance is to try to recreate Sonnen/Silva I, and I just don't see it happening.

Dude cuts way too much weight to be in a 25 minute fight with the most dangerous fighter in the sport.

If any member of the Weidman family is an overweight woman that would be the greatest nickname/insult ever.

A lot of people are drinking the Weidman Kool-Aid, I bet it is a lot closer than that.

Our bet can finally conclude then. Anderson will not get tapped by Weidman. We've hashed this out a million times, no sense in belabouring a dead horse.

Anybody have odds out yet for this fight?

Werdum landed not only more but also more effective strikes in the Overeem fight. Other than a crushing knee to the body in the second Overeem's offense was neutralized by Fabricio.

Someone please explain to me how Clay Guida has been branded one of the most exciting fighters in the sport and Werdum catches he'll for that fight. What was he supposed to do exactly? Trade strikes in open space with the K-1 WGP champion? Or clinch with the most dangerous knee striker in the sport?

Or was his strategy of pressing forward with violent flurries (and landing) and trying to lure Overeem into the most dangerous guard in the history of the HW division?

Agreed 100%. Yves looked pretty good, just tired a bit in the third. Always one of my favorite fighters.

I like this idea. This would fill the time slot before the Werdum fight, and would also set up the rubber match between Nog and Josh.

Then have Bigfoot fight the winner of Hunt/Struve for the next shot after Werdum.

And in the meantime we can see JDS vs Overeem.

Pay for it if you can. Better for the UFC, better for the fighters, better for everyone.

I'm not being an ass, I know $45 can be more than some can afford, but I firmly believe if you can afford it you should buy it.

Vitor has looked a lot more juiced up in the past though.

Plus, I'm pretty sure it is out there now that he is on TRT. That would account for his looking juiced.

I have a little bit of a hypocritical stance on this. I gave Sonnen crap for it, but I'm fine with Vitor and Hendo doing it. We need to get Noguiera and Wanderlei on this stuff.

I worded that poorly; I didnt mean Jose was better at everything. Boxing is close, Jose is definitely the superior striker in my mind. Jose moves very well also, before he tires that is.

Frankie does have better wrestling, especially takedowns. He hasn't really shown good control on top, but he doesn't seem to try real hard to maintain top position after a takedown.

Is that for sure yet? Or is this still just a rumor?
Posted Friday February 01, 2013, About: UFC 156 Pick'em
I have absolutely no idea what will happen in Aldo/Edger.

Jose is better in all areas, but Frankie is the king of stick and move and quick takedowns. Jose is huge but his cardio has shown cracks over and over again. If he looks in the later rounds like he did with Hominick in this fight, Frankie could stop him lack

What a great fight, I'm so very excited.

Was Hioki controlled Saturday night?

Very interesting match.

I'd say this: Luke's TDD looked solid against Tim Kennedy. Kennedy isn't as good a wrestler as Weidman. He has good movement, I do think he could use his kicks (set up by punches) to move around Luke if he can stay vertical.

I see that fight going this way: Weidman grounds him in the first 3 rounds, beats him up. He could stop him, and that is probably what would happen. But, Chris would probably be at a cardio disadvantage to Luke, who we have seen go five fives and still look pretty fresh. He could stick and move with his really accurate punches, use that nice turnback roundhouse which we never see from anyone else in MMA, and do some real damage if Weidman fades enough to not get takedowns the whole fight. Leg kicks could slow Chris down as well.

I would probably favor Weidman in that fight.

And everyone will say "Will then stop Guida from taking you down." That was an awful decision. And now Hioki has 2 losses in a row, possibly one away from getting axed.

This is why Clay should be cut. He just makes for horrible to watch fights and tricks judges into robbing contenders.
Posted Saturday January 26, 2013, About: Why all the hate for Daniel Cormier???
If Weidman wins, I agree that would be how. I think that Jacare would hit him hard on the feet, since Jacare has no fear of being taken down, and when Weidman does take him down I see a sweep and sub finish.

That would be a great fight though. I'd like to see that as a #1 contendership bout at 185.

Here is a question for you Jim:

Who wins a fight between Jacare and Weidman and how?

I'm interested to hear your take on this potential match.

Yeah, for sure. I think they both got brought over to the UFC anyway if I'm not mistaken.
