Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I wonder if Mo's firing is a ploy to have him move to UFC.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

So what does everyone think of the new live TUF? I think it's pretty cool.. I like the fact that everything that happened that week you are seeing that Friday. The live fights are cool as well..

Problem is, it's on a Friday night. Cool concept, but poor timing, which is resulting in poorer ratings this season.

I am just catching up with my recordings of it today (I know, sort of defeats the purpose of it being live). I like it, though I now know to pad the recording a little or I am going to start missing decisions.

Maurice Smith just knocked a guy out via Brutal head kick at the age of 50. He looked pretty good too. Albeit he was fighting a tomato can fighter. But still, for 50 he was no joke.

My DVR cut off in the middle of the third round on the TUF fight last Friday night. Guess I need to pad 10 minutes on to the end. Who won?

10 minutes wouldn't have been enough to see the next fight selection as well. I recommend 15 minutes. And the Team Faber kid won.

According to F4WOnline, Overeem failed his drug test. The other five in the surprise test passed.

Jesus, he knew the NSAC was going to test him a bunch of times this year after the debacle in December. All he had to do was stay clean until his title fight. This is just stupidity.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

What a maroon if true. I always look forward to his fights. Whatever you think of his talents his presence elevates events. But this is just ridiculous.

This...

Not surprising by any means.. I mean look at the dude.. I'm super bummed though.. Love him as a fighter, sans the cheating, and seems like a super cool dude when he's on the MMA Hour etc.. But like Thrush said.. The NSAC gave you a temporary license under the condition that they would RANDOMLY test out the next 6 months..

Are you that dumb!?!? I guess so.. Was so looking forward to that fight.. If Mir gets the shot I think it will be a KO in R1 for JDS..

if Mir gets the title shot I really hope they put Werdum into his spot against Cain.

Overeem was the only reason I would buy a PPV. Forget it now.

Overeem's testosterone to epitestosterone ratio was 14:1. The average adult male is 1:1 and the Nevada State Athletic Commission allows up to 6:1.

Chael was higher at 16.9:1 when he fought Silva.

Where did you hear this? I doubt they'd wanna shuffle it that badly. Most likely JDS vs Mir & Cain vs Werdum, although there's huge support for either Fedor or Mark Hunt to get the title shot. Even Hendo's being mentioned (although that will never happen).

Mir is the most logical choice for JDS but not sure why they would put Big Foot up against Cain and Mitrione against Big Country.. Werdum is open they should put him up against Cain being he beat Big Foot, Fedor, and Big Country recently..

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Just a heads-up if your taping Ultimate Fighter tonight - the first episode (of three episodes) of
UFC Primetime: Jones vs Evans will be shown after tonights episode of The Ultimate Fighter.
Each episode will run a half-hour. So if your taping both - at least set the recording till 11:45 pm ET.
Theres always the chance that the LIVE fight goes to a third round - like last week - thus pushing everything
back at least 10 minutes or so. I record to 11:30 pm ET anyway when I record TUF so I was ok last week.
This week and the next two weeks, I'll add a half-hour for UFC Primetime and record to 12:00 am ET.

LB...
