Pfft, Guillard got owned. He was waaaaay too tenative on the feet and got not only outstruck but taken down multiple times. He absolutely lost the fight and whoever scored the fight 30-27 for Guillard is apparently Melvin's boyfriend.


Byrd forgot to write "Varner = White" and "Guillard = Black" on her hands. Or maybe she just remembered the latter.

Shock of shocks Cecil Peoples was a judge for the fight and wasn't the one that fucked it up.


Thanks guys, I laughed at both those comments. :) Dana found the scoring equally egregious.

Invicta Fighting Championships 4 will be the first Pay-Per-View and it's only $7.95 for all 13 bouts. #Sold. Looks like they are going through UStream...we'll see how that works.

It's pissing me off that I can't remember the exact fight right now, but one of the refs on the main card was fucking TERRIBLE. He broke them up twice for no reason and even did it while they were on the ground with a guy in top position and working. Rogan even commented that he thought it was some bullshit.

Oh and did anybody else think Anik and Rogan was just a weird combination?

Talking about Okami and Belecher I believe.

I prefer Goldy over Anik, and generally don't like Anik but I do much prefer Rogan and Anik together then Anik and Florian.Anik and Florian just don't seem to get across any enthusiasm across and come off as dry even if Kenny does know his stuff and does have a passion for the sport.To me the team of Anik and Rogan seemed to do well together to the point where I wasn't annoyed by Anik.

Not sure if you guys are interested, but the 100 greatest fights had a good price drop on blu-ray to about 16.99.Good deal if you don't already own it and prefer blu-ray,heck its even cheaper then the dvd version now.The only complaint I had with it is Dana letting personal grudges be invovled and limited some options for the fans to vote on as the best fights.Noteable missing is Frank Shamrock vs. Tito.

I actually totally forgot it was Anik announcing, not Goldy. Rogan is definitely the best and when he's not there it's definitely noticeable, Goldy not so much to me.

Yeah it was the Okami/Belcher fight, thanks.

And my feelings are pretty much the same when it comes to Anik. I would have preferred Florian and Rogan over Anik and Rogan though. When Anik and Florian get together to commentate, both of them sound similar and neither one has a distinctive voice so it's hard to tell who is who sometimes IMO.

Haha that's probably because Anik barely said anything. At least with Goldy and Rogan there's a rapport, this was just pretty much all Rogan. Which I was fine with anyways.

Haha...wow. Tyson Fury calls out Cain Velasquez.

http://sports.yahoo....dGlvbnM-;_ylv=3

While I would LOVE to see this, I'm sure the self-proclaimed "baddest man on the planet" is only thinking of challenging Cain to a punching contest. I always laugh my ass off hearing boxers talk about how they'll smash people and how no one can beat them, and then it's like..."but no takedowns!" I'll always respect boxing for being a sport of strategy and timing...but strapping on thicker gloves just so you can beat on each other for 36 minutes is not fighting. I'll never forget when Joe Rogan flat out told Lou Dibella on ESPN "Boxing is the sport of punching. MMA is the sport of fighting." I'd love to see Cain shoot in on Fury and just maul him like he did to Bigfoot Silva.

From what I heard Rousey schooled a pro boxer a few weeks ago after "he said no woman could do that shit to me".Vic Darchinyan is ranked 8th in the world at 122 and apparently his camp didn't want it getting out.She armbared him in seconds and they broke it up and stopped it right away in fears of him getting hurt.

You might have caught it after it ended, even though it still list it as that, you can still watch the entire event for free if you click on the "videos" tab and go to the first video at the top.

Benson Henderson is fighting on Fox again, in April against Gil Melendez. I've never actually seen Melendez fight (I mostly just follow UFC), it seems like his stock has kind of gone down over the past 12 months so I'm not sure what to think about the matchup. I obviously hope Ben wins though.

As for much more current events, I'm definitely pulling for Bisping on Saturday. I actually really like the guy.

To be honest it was a bit overrated from the bout with Kawajiri where he killed him with hellbows and people thought he was either the best or 2nd best Lightweight and then facing two guys that weren't even top ten and taking Masvidal to a decision and against Thompson if it had been more then 5 rounds then Gil would've lost.The rubbermatch between those guys is a perfect example of Unified Rules vs. Pride rules judging,if it were Pride rules then Thompson would've won and have been champion bit with round by round scoring you had to give it to Melendez.

I think hes a bit underrated again now that hes lost some of the hype he had.Personally going with Bendo but could see Gil winning some of the early rounds possibly.

I pulling for Vitor, but if Bisping does win I hope he gets the next title shot cause I'd love to see him get mauled by Anderson Silva lol

I'm one of the few that like Vitor in the fight and am actually surprised so few people are picking Vitor to win.I feel a little like a lonely black sheep here and I like Bisping too,seems more real and is just himself.

The UFC on Fox card tonight was probably one of the best cards Fox has had since they started airing events. The Cerrone/Pettis fight was a lot shorter than expected and even though both main events went to decision, both were extremely entertaining.

I'm fucking PUMPED for next weeks UFC event though. Aldo vs. Edgar is going to be insane!

Yeah it was a good night of fights. Fucking Cerrone didn't do anything. Looks like Pettis will get the next title shot, but he's gonna have to wait for it. I'd like to see him fight again (maybe Jim Miller) but I'm sure he won't want to. I still don't know what to think about him. He's definitely a scary challenger.

I was hoping Glover would finish Rampage. And the Johnson/Dodson was more entertaining then I thought it would be. I was definitely pulling for Dodson though.

UFC 156: Aldo Vs. Edgar

Date: February 2, 2013 7:00 PM EST
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Venue: Mandalay Bay Events Center
Broadcast: Pay-per-view, FX and Facebook

MAIN (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar - for featherweight title
Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva
Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia
Joseph Benavidez vs. Ian McCall

PRELIMINARY (FX, 8 p.m. ET)
Evan Dunham vs. Gleison Tibau
Jay Hieron vs. Tyron Woodley
Bobby Green vs. Jacob Volkmann
Yves Edwards vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg

PRELIMINARY (Facebook, 7 p.m. ET)
Chico Camus vs. Dustin Kimura
Edwin Figueroa vs. Francisco Rivera

Cant wait for this card tomorrow night!!!!!!! Aldo Vs. Edgar is going to be sick. I'm pulling for Edgar, but Aldo is just scary on the feet and his leg kicks are brutal.

I think Overeem is going to KTFO Silva tbh.

I also have Rashad taking a UD over Lil Nog.

Fitch Vs. Maia is going to be very interesting cause I'm wondering if Fitch is gonna want to take it to the ground even thought Maia is a jiu-jitsu specialist. Also Maia has destroyed some pretty good wrestlers in DHK and Rick Story since moving down to welterweight.

I see Benavidez being to quick for Uncle Creepy and taking a UD.

This thread isn't really as popular as it was a few months ago. Am I missing something, did a lot of the guys migrate to a new thread?

Anyway, tomorrow night's card is amazing! Fitch/Maia has the potential to be a snoozer, but the rest should be pretty damn good.

I'm definitely pulling Frankie, I really like the guy. Aldo is super scary but I actually think Frankie will win. I agree with Metal Militia on the Evans and Overeem fights, but I'm pulling for Uncle Creepy, I think he can take Benavidez.

I am rooting for Aldo, but Frankie did excellent in the LW division which is one of the strongest in the UFC so I think it could go either way. Overeem should win easy, it is mainly a warm-up fight for the title shot. Evans should win and I will be pulling hard for Uncle Creepy, I hope he uses his takedowns to do some G&P. Fitch and Maia I don't really care about, but hopefully Maia pulls off a crazy sub.

Yeah I enjoyed what the both had to say. Chase seemed to be extremely knowledgeable about MMA, and even though I don't understand a lot of the finer details about gambling, he usually had good insights on the fights/fighters.

I agree about both people, Crackrabbit was wrong alot of the time, but was still easier to deal with than most people on the UG that have different opinions.

My picks tonight -

Aldo - I am worried about this pick because every fight Frankie is in is razor thin, and there is a rumor about Aldo having stitches recently around his left eyebrow

Evans
Overeem - should make short work of Bigfoot
Fitch
McCall - not sure on this one but I'm too big a fan of Uncle Creepy to go any other way. Edit - he lost :(

I'm a Fitch fan, but even I can acknowledge that Maia was trying to get a sub. All Fitch could do was fight him off. Maia was all over him. And Fitch is stupid for throwing a kick to start the 3rd round. Maia probably would have taken him down 10 seconds later anyway, but it was still a horrible idea. I'd actually be interested in seeing Maia fight GSP at this point. Would make for an intriguing style match up.
