There's been 3 key losses to the main event - Sara McMann vs Liz Carmouche was also scratched.

Some good news considering Vitor Belfort wasn't quite the contender people had hoped for.Comes in a bit lower then the bout with Machida which was around 480k I think.

Current rumors suggest that Strikeforce is going out of business.

"Sources close to BJPENN.com informed us just moments ago that Strikeforce operations are set to cease and that the promotion is going out of business.

The rumor comes shortly after news broke that Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (10-1 MMA, 9-0 SF) was forced to pull out of his title fight with Lorenz Larkin (13-0 MMA, 4-0 SF) due to a wrist injury.

The middleweight title fight was the second key loss to a scheduled November 3rd card, following the loss of a heavyweight main event bout between Frank Mir and Daniel Cormier.

Stay tuned to BJPENN.com for further updates"


Yeah I heard about that as well. Strikeforce is apparently going to close up shop in 2013 and that is when their deal with Showtime is getting finished too. So we should be seeing SF fighters transitioning over very soon.

Weidman, Belcher, Bisping, even Boetsch. I'm tired of hearing about Silva fighting Jones or GSP. The GSP talk is beyond ridiculous and has been for years. Silva's fine with the GSP fight because he outweighs him by a large margin, but he is suspiciously uncomfortable with the idea of fighting Jones. There's more than enough people for him to take on at middleweight.

Before tonight honestly I wasn't that interested in Jones vs. Anderson but now...it does feel like the fight for Anderson to try and retire on.Just amazing how he let Bonnar throw all those shots and was just playing with him like that and then when he decides to go for the kill does it so easily,even more impressive with it being Bonnar whos never been legit finished until now and it was just with a perfectly timed knee.Watching Anderson strike just makes it seem as if time is slowed down for him to pick his shots like that.Vitor was able to threaten Jones with submissions at times with a near armbar and triangle towards the second,I'd think Anderson would manage to do better on the ground dealing with Jones.Seems like the biggest/most exciting superfight out there.

Had a great time watching UFC 153 Tonight.The matches weren't really of that much importance but they were all fun entertaining fights.Even the Fitch fight was exciting and there was quite a lot of great grappling fights going on this card.

Glover looked pretty good tonight. I'm very curious to see who he will fight next. I'd love to see a Rashad/Glover fight. Yeah I know Rashad turned down a fight with Glover earlier, but that was because the fight was on short notice.

Even though he got the living hell beat out of him I think Fabio's stock somewhat rose showing off that sort of chin.I would be very surprised if he got cut after this despite being 1-3 in his last four.I would like to see Glover face Rampage next assuming Rampage will be healed up well enough sometime in the next 6 months.Glover is a good fighter but I don't think hes all that hes hyped up to be but I'm very interested in seeing him face a top fighter next like a Shogun or a Evans.

I have never seen a more vicious beating then the one Fabio Maldonado took against Glover...that first round assault was insane...what made it more crazy is Fabio, being practically out on his feet managed to stun Glover with a left hook.

Despite most of this card being unimportant, there was still some fun fights, great ko's, and subs.

If it wasn't for that at the end of the first round I had it as a 10-7 legit round for Glover.

Fitch/Maia sounds like a good matchup to make, sense both are grapplers and Maia will probably have the advantage on the feet actually. Not that it would stay on the feet though.

It does sound like a good match up.Almost "too good" in a way.This might sound crazy but I think last night was finally the night where it seemed like Fitch might be back in title contention(with Dana) again after putting on that display.

Well I doubt he is an all-star in Dana's book but I think even if he was, it would be unfair for Fitch to be in a higher ranking then Maia. Same...maybe...but Fitch shouldn't be closer to a title shot then Maia, especially because Maia's putting on good fights even moreso now.

Except for the fact that Fitch was promised a title shot before the Nick Diaz/Carlos Condit nonsense ever started. Yeah, he's had that freak KO loss against Hendricks since then, but the guy's record since his last fight against GSP is phenomenal. Any other fighter fights 3 times and gets another title shot. Fitch won 5 straight before being put on hold, and is 6-1-1 since he lost to GSP. He's earned it as much as anybody. Maia has had one impressive fight at 170. I don't doubt that he would have beaten Kim, but you can't count that one when it ended due to a freak injury. If Dana wants to have Fitch fight Maia for a title shot, I think that would be a good match up. But acting like Maia just has an automatic bid because of one win is crazy.

No I don't think Maia is ranked HIGHER than Fitch, but I wouldn't necessarily say Fitch is significantly ahead of Maia in the WW rankings either. Personally I think a matchup between the two makes the most sense. Without them fighting each other, who does Fitch and Maia fight?

They are both nearing title contention because of the relative weakness of the division. Most guys at WW have already been beaten up by GSP or wouldn't have even a small chance to win, so nobody even bothers.

Chael Sonnen was made for reality TV. He could easily make TUF into the Chael Sonnen Variety Hour Presented by Nexersys.
