Can't believe you guys didn't mention the fucking annoucement made at this UFC EVENT! That's going to be one of the most anticipated FIGHT OF 2006!

UFC Champ vs Pride Champ. Lots of fight fans can't imagine this is going to happen!

Who is fighting who?

I feel sorry for Chuck. If he beats Babalou, he's going to get destroyed by Wanderlei. No doubt about it.


Too bad it isn't Fedor Emelianenko coming over.

That man is a monster.


First of all, there's no reason for Fedor to come to the UFC unless he actually wanted to murder all the UFC heavyweights.

The UFC heavyweight division is in a sad state of affairs right now. There's four or five guys in Pride who could easily whip Silvia's ass in seconds.

What I'd like to see is a legitimate UFC vs. Pride showdown. The Pride heavyweights would kill the UFC's, but I think the UFC middleweights would hold their own.

And about the Ken fight. He's been dealt a similar knockout by Sakuraba, and he went even more apeshit than he did after this fight. Ken was just trying to play to the audience to save some shred of dignity after being annihilated by his rival.

I just can't wait to see a Tito/Chuck rematch. I think Tito can take him now.

And also, everyone watch out for Anderson Silva. This dude is going to take the UFC by storm. I predict big things for this guy.

The Ortiz/Shamrock fight was a joke.

True. Or the fight a while back between Cabbage and Arlovski. Just because Cabbage fell down doesn't mean that the ref should stop the fight.

:applause:

Thank you.

I was happy that Shamrock lost, can't stand him, but he shouldn't have lost that way.

It was a shame that the best fight of the night, was the first one that left the ring all bloody and not either of the main events.

I was thinking of e-mailing both Zuffa and Dana White to vent my extreme displeasure about how both those fights ended. Once again, I pay good money for a PPV that leaves me unsatisfied with my purchase. I won't be paying full price for the Liddell fight...

Well, I can almost guarantee you there will be a legitimate knockout in the Liddell/Silva fight.

agreed! the main even was so boring! :bomb:

if you haven't already seen it, do not pay for it on pay per view. it's worth about 1/10th the price. :lol:

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

But early in the 1st round? I certainly hope not for $39.95. I may pay $10 to go watch it at a sports bar, though...

agree re: ortiz/shamrock

since that was such a big grudge match, they needed to let it go at least a few more seconds before they stepped in

and i didn't think the fans were booing tito, they were booing the ref who stopped the fight

What type of car were Tito and Shamrock fighting for, in addition to the bragging rights and pride for defeating the other guy? They announced it during the TUF 3 show, one was black (which they both wanted), and the other was yellow. I would have been happy for either color.

I think they were sort of booing him because he was celebrating the victory. Atleast thats how I took it, as they were booing him when he was talking about a win being a win.

yeah that is a good point, plus i'm sure there were lots of ken fans making noise too

tito probably could have forgone the usual 'octagon leap' and other post-win showboating since it was such a lopsided victory

i wanted to see at least 30-45 seconds of good stand-up

I don't think so. Why wouldn't anyone celebrate after getting a win? He beat the shit out of Ken, and the ref stopped the fight before he got further humiliated. I think Ken owes the ref a thank you.

Tito still has a lot of animosity directored towards him for his past antics. He gained a lot of fans back with his dedication in TUF3 and saying sorry after a few fights. I would have like to see the fight go for a few more shots, but thats what the ref called.

I listened to Silvia on the radio after the fight, he actually got a concussion.

Anyone see the first episode of "TUF 4: The Comeback"? My TiVo stopped recording before the end of the fight between Carter and Clementi. I'll have to set it to record an extra 5 minutes or so. Fucking hilarious how Shonie was dressed in pimp attire when he got to the training facility.:D

I also found out that Andrei Arlovski trains at the same gym that my wife goes to. She said his trainer told her the reason Andrei didn't try to submit Sylvia when they fought last was because Andrei had injured his ankle...

Yeah, my Tivo chopped off the last bit of the first episode as well. I think as long as there isn't a live event airing before it you'll be fine without adding time to the recording.

I meant to record the end of it on a re-airing, but then I saw a promo for this week's episode during Blade and it mentioned the winner in the first 3 seconds of the spot. So guess I don't need to worry with that now...

The fight on episode 2 was the bloodiest I have seen in a while. it was just pouring out of DeWees and just when you thought it had stopped he would grind his forehead into the mat and open it up again.

And when it would quit bleeding for a little bit, he would rub his face into the mat and it would open back up. By the end pretty much the entire ring was covered. Pretty good fight though.

Same with the PPV last night, the card seemed a little weak, but it turned out to be fairly good.

Who is Matt Hughes going to be fighting in UFC 63? On the website, it says he'll be fighting BJ Penn, but the insert in my DirecTV bill has him fighting George St. Pierre.
