The curse continues, Siyar is out of UFC 149. Riddle takes his place.

First it was Alves vs Akiyama, then Alves vs Siyar, then Siyar vs Clements, and now Clements vs Riddle.

I'm so glad my wife is due the week after that event as if she wasn't I most likely would've paid big bucks to go to it.

They really need to swoop in & add a marquee fight or two to thos card. If not, at least adjust the ticket prices for this card and give some sort of partial refund to people who already bought tickets.


The scampers are going to lose their shirts on this one.

Rampage vs Teixeira

Quote:
A light-heavyweight bout between former champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (32-10 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and recent promotional newcomer Glover Teixeira (18-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has been added to UFC 153 in Brazil.

I like this match up. If Rampage is in shape and actually cares, it should be a good fight.

This is the fight I expected them to make, it made a ton of sense. Could be huge for Glover if he can win.

I had a feeling they would throw Rampage to the wolves for his last fight. Teixeira isn't a name so I have doubts Rampage gets excited for this fight and shows up in shape.

I think Glover is a name to fighters though, he's had a lit of hype behind him for a while & other issues kept him out of the octagon.

Rampage is probably very excited to fight another striker for a change.

A day after tweeting, "Well I sure wish someone would step up for Denver," Colorado's own Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone found a willing candidate in "Young Assassin" Melvin Guillard, who is coming off a victory last weekend at UFC 148.

The lightweight war between the strikers and former teammates will be the co-main event at UFC 150 August 11 in Denver, Colorado.

Very good fight.

Hoping no one gets injured now. UFC 152 is looking pretty good with those two fights plus Penn/MacDonald.

Kos v Ellenberger added to UFC 151.

Makes sense, it was a fight we had already tossed around on this board.

With all the planned cards and injuries they have to continue to make the roster larger. That means...adding guys like Vinny to the roster.

I really disliked Vinny on TUF but the guy did enough to warrant a another chance after being cut.

It's not like he's a bum, he was a young fighter who's all around gm didn't match his ground skills.

Evan Dunham vs TJ Grant added to the Toronto card.

Im a card carrying member of the TJ grant fan club but he's getting a big step up in competition here.

Who did people expect Cormier to fight? There is nobody outside of the UFC in terms of HW's. I like the Sylvia fight, it was my #1 choice outside of that ice-cream loving Russian dude coming out of 'retirement'.
