Herman's 1-3 in the UFC and looked terrible in all those losses, he is way too hesitant to engage. He should be cut.

I hope Bonnar wins so every MMA blog on the planet explodes and I can stay up all night reading the charred broken pieces.

Isn't Silva unpopular? People are realist about him winning, but I rarely see too many people saying they like him.

I think if your second loss in a row is a short notice fight, you'll probably get another one. But if you've lost two in bad fashion like Herman has, you might already get cut. A third bad loss, short notice or not, probably is ground for dismissal.

But let's face it, HW is so weak that he may stick around or be back in a hurry anyway.

Yep. Even if he pulls off his assumed strategy, he'll look like he lost every second of the fight.

Silva is fairly popular with the media, its the fans that he's never really caught on with. I'm sure GSP fans cheer for him to lose so that they can claim GSP is the best P4P guy, for whatever that's worth.

Unless Bonnar takes the fight to him right away. He doesnt like that.

I think Bonnar will come out guns blazing.

He will either get KO'd in under a minute, or he will win the round.

Then he will try to rinse and repeat. If he is still awake.

If Bonnar takes the fight to him, Bonnar will end up like Forrest. Staring at the lights wondering what just happened.

Yeah but he's pretty much a lock to win and he's had the belt forever, it would be huge. For the record he's my favourite fighter but a lot of people don't like him.

I'll try to carry on without your respect, it may be tough. Didn't say I didn't like the song, just commented on its discoesque sound.

I love Silva and GSP. How can you not like what Silva does? His skill level is insane. It is like saying you didn't like Gordie Howe in his prime? Who the **** saids that?

Exactly why I think he'll get cut. With the addition of the SF guys and possible other additions of maybe Barnett and Cormier (if he doesn't drop to LHW when he moves over), the division isn't nearly as weak as it once was. He would get beat by probably 15-20 guys already in the UFC HW division. Let him go work the independent circuit and see if he can improve and come back to the UFC in the future. But for now, he should be cut.

I don't dislike him. I just want something newsworthy to read.

No Steven Seagal appearances or mentions at all during the build up to this. Does this mean the nonsense is finally done? Please say yes.

I love Silva too. But, GSP's much more popular and hence you get his fans who want him to be known as the top guy. Personally I don't even care about p4p lists, but others do. I think it was already brought up in this thread regarding Silva.

It is, it's disgusting, and it's not a good look for the UFC. I hope he gets tooled up.
