The UFC now more less own Pride by the way.

http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_home/2007/Mar-27-Tue-2007/sports/13414338.html

The UFC president Dana White now has the rights to use Pride mixed martial artists against the best in the UFC when he wants which is great for MMA when it comes to matching up the best fighters in the world.

http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=EventDetail.FightCard&eid=472

Keep an eye on the likes of Cro Cop, Arlovski & Liverpool's Michael Bisping at UFC 70. Cage Rage 21 just happens to be on the same night too.

http://www.cagerage.tv/nextevents.htm


We've got our own local MMA events too so I'd keep a look out for the likes of Total Combat & Valhalla and support our local fighters. A lot of the fights are semi-pro, but the only difference being is that there is no punching to the head when on the ground. There's always a few big name pro fighters to draw in the crowd so it’s always a pretty good night for entertainment value.

Sanchez lost his bottle likel. I thought he would have killed him.

Liddell vs Rampage 2 next month. Should be class that, Rampage destroyed him the last time.

I haven't seen it, as I was put in b****** work, and couldn't find anywhere to watch it in time. Don't think its repeated either.

GSP KO'd in the first round by Serra, now CroCop. Crazy s***.

Indeed. Now with the aquisition of Pride, looks like more fighters are going to be dethroned...(I'm thinking Liddell...)

Liddell got chinned off Rampage last time (his UFC 71 opponent) But Rampage hasn't been as good as he used to be lately. Either way, if Shogun comes over from PRIDE, he will beat anyone in the UFC at LHW.

Caught the replay here the other night.  Knocked out the way he knocks out people(Cro Cop).  Pretty gash night
before that fight.  The skinny scouser was pretty good and Bisping destroyed that Aussie c***.  I wanna
see Bisping face a decent fighter, he's only fought bottom feeders.  Impressive, but I wanna see him fight
an opponent with a decent history.

Sinosic has fought alot of big names. Ortiz ect

UFC 72 seems to be pretty s****, the one in (Northern?) Ireland. Rich Franklin is the main event...

What did Tito do to him?  Beat the s**** out of him as well.  I felt bad for Sinosic, the bloke was up against it.  Seemed
like a nice bloke as well.

Yeah, but Sinosic does have experience ect. Just saying :P

You gotta build Bisping up, if you put him straight in against the best he would get destroyed.

Bisping has had quite a few fights, he's 14-0.  You're right about Sinosic, but I think they could
have found someone a little more challenging.  Human punching bags aren't entertaining.  I like
Bisping, he's a humble bloke and fights like it's his last, but give the guy someone who will offer a
bit of opposition.  Just saying.  ;)

Yeah, Sinosic has lost his last 6 fights, and only won once (v Jeremy Horn)

Bisping will probably have another fight against someone not so good, then get a big fight.

Be good if he fought Babalu. Probably abit too much for him though.

Isn't Babalu in a different weight class?  I say Forest Griffin would be a good fight with Bisping and
would give him a talent check.  Take him down and Bisping is for real.  Won't happen, though.

Since my last post on the first page I've really got into UFC. Watched both 69 and 70 and have been watching the ultimate fighter.

Gonzaga's KO of Cro Crop was brilliant.  :coolsmiley:

Shocked me when I was watching it.  Couture called it, though.  Gonzaga Vs. Couture will be brilliant. Both possess great stand-up and ground techniques.  I have a feeling we'll still see Cro Cop in a championship fight.  The Heavyweight Class is pretty thin on talent.

Cro Crop's problem is adapting to UFC, like he said he had troubles with blurry vision after the elbows, something he wasn't used to when he was with PRIDE.

Hopefully Nogueira should spice up the Heavyweight division.

Right, mate.  Babalu is a bit s****, he lost to Lambert.  Rashad Evans beat up Lambert.  Evans and
Bisping would be a good fight to decide who faces Liddell.

I thought that Dana White was going to announce Fedor Emelianenko had joined UFC, bit dissatisfying.  Still, you're right, Nogueira should be able to make an impact.

Babalu isn't s***. Bisping won't be fighting Liddell for atleast 2 years. Nowhere near good enough. Evans isnt even ranked, so he shouldn't fight Liddell.

Evans is fighting Tito in July. If Liddell beats Rampage, hopefully Shogun will fight Liddell.

I said a "bit s****", meaning he's off form losing to Lambert.  I don't think Bisping is as far away as you think he is.  Evans beats Tito and he's right up there, look at Cera and where did Gonzaga come from?  There's so many fighters out there that if you have the slightest bit more talent than most, you'll rise quickly. 

I remember in the 90's it was anybody in the crowd who felt like taking on someone, could.  Tank Abbott days and Gracie, who introduced MMA to UFC, practically.

The problem with the UFC is most of the best LHW's are in Pride. Wanderlei Silva, Shogun, Arona, Dan Henderson and Rampage has just come across.

I like Bisping, but he's pretty sloppy. Gonzaga was already ranked I think before he fought CroCop. Serra was lucky.
