only if Munoz is sick like last time...

that's the other thing....that isn't the Munoz that Weidman beat...

The only thing that fight showed was that Weidman isn't all that....he beat a guy that was mocking him with closed eyes, not a guy that was taking him seriously...a serious Silva would destroy Weidman...

I get what you are saying but so many others have said the same only to lose, in embarassing fashion...I really do see Weidman either coming out too fast and doing something sloppy or coming out tentatively which will pretty much give Silva the win...

I see UFC doing everything they can to have Anderson Silva lose before he retires....if he retires unbeaten, for years the next MW champ will be seen as #2 because Silva never got beat....people will always think that the ONLY reason Silva isn't wearing the belt is his own choice to retire...Couture winning the HW title at such an advanced age will make that thought linger for a LONG time....it's just like Faber's rationale for saying that Cruz' belt should not be stripped....why bother since everyone will know that he didn't lose the belt by losing a fight and he'd get an immediate title shot when he returns anyway?

for one fight instead of a long future of fights? sounds like getting paid $1 dollar now instead of $1 million later..

Zuffa gains next to nothing to have another aging fighter beat a young guy with potential...if they were going to fix fights, they'd use the rep of the old guys to give the new class of fighters some "credibility" in order to keep the MMA ball rolling into the future...they'd WANT Rockhold to win because he potentially has years of money making left in him while Vitor is almost done...

I wait to see the psychological impact....so many fighters come in with the plan and leave with a loss...so many fighters say you gotta be aggressive and then when fight day actually comes, they come out of their corner really tentatively and end up losing...Sonnen DID come out aggressive and it worked and he STILL left with a loss, twice...question is whether Weidman does what he thinks he knows he needs to do...
Posted Wednesday May 15, 2013, About: MMA revival thread
some of your stat comparisons are a bit out of context....Sonnen has had a MUCH longer career and has recently been fighting a LOT of top level fighters including a couple of title holders...Weidman has fought MAINLY nobodies on his way up the ladder as most fighters do early in their careers....I'd have to imagine that Sonnen's stats have taken a dip in recent years...not suggesting that your point is wrong, just that the stats, as listed, mean very little and have almost NO relevence to the point you are actually trying to make...

If Mir's performance was anything but dismal, Cormier's performance might be considered impressive...however, Mir did nothing, so Cormier doing a little more than that is still next to nothing...
Posted Tuesday May 07, 2013, About: MMA revival thread
there is NO evidence that Cormier is one of the better HWs...he and Mir hugged it out for 3 rounds...that wasn't an impressive showing from either of them but certainly didn't suggest that Cormier was anywhere near contention for the title...There are 2 main reasons Cormier isn't dropping to LHW: 1) Jones injury with a likely fight against the winner of Machida vs Gustaffson upon his return puts a LHW title fight out of Cormier's reach for the near future and 2) his one UFC showing so far certainly didn't merit a title shot at either weight, so by staying at HW, he can take advantage of a couple more opportunities to show his is worthy while waiting for the right opportunity to drop down for a title fight at LHW.

1 error is a mistake, 2 is incompetence...
Posted Tuesday May 07, 2013, About: MMA revival thread
it changes the context though when Silva is on film before the fight, during training, explaining how he plans to submit Sonnen...then you find out about the cracked rib going into the fight...and then you see Sonnen's busted up face and barely a mark on Silva....
Posted Thursday March 14, 2013, About: Chris Weidman wants to finish Anderson Silva
hehe....hardly....Jones has size but Silva has mastered more than Jones has even heard of....
Posted Wednesday March 13, 2013, About: Chris Weidman wants to finish Anderson Silva
yeah, but GSP said it like he is brand new to this marketing thing....he didn't say it like he really believed it....he just wanted his name out there to maintain some interest in a possible superfight that would bring major $$$...because right now, not too many people are talking about GSP in a superfight as MOST people realize he is too small and Jones makes a better and more interesting opponent for Silva.
Posted Monday February 25, 2013, About: Anderson's reign finally coming to an end
Dana seems rather confident that Silva will still be in postition for a "superfight" sometime after the fight with Weidman....the draw for a superfight would diminish rapidly if Silva lost to Weidman...

which ones are going to be worth watching and which will have fans nodding off trying to stay awake for the next fight?

There is a reason every new big prospect to hit the WW division eventually loses to GSP....
Posted Monday January 28, 2013, About: Has There Ever Been A More Overrated Fighter Than Nick Diaz?
is the guy that is being taken down, mounting no attack whatsoever, and spending the entire fight trying to get back up doing enough to be "winning"? lay and pray is boring, yes, but the guy on the bottom isn't exactly scoring points by being laid on...if nothing else, he is being controlled...

Something was wrong with Cerrone going into the fight...he is normally aggressive right from the opening bell but came out tentative and slow, and Pettis isn't someone to be scared of...

no athletic commission that says "pot is cheating but TRT isn't" should be taken seriously
