That is what a lot of people are saying. Personally I have little interest in watching Maynard.

I don't see any reason to be happy about this. Maynard has been involved in two FOTY contenders recently, and I think he did his part to make the Guida fight fun.

It never ends. Wouldn't be surprised to see Carwin retire after this.

Much better fight since Maynard won his last fight unlike Lauzon.

Lauzon beat Varner in his last fight.

What's Hunt's status? He doesn't strike me as a guy who's always in fighting shape, but that'd be an interesting fight.

Word is it might be Mike Kyle.

Well, I feel like an idiot. For some reason I kept thinking his fight with Pettis was his last one.

I thought I read somewhere that he was still injured, not sure though. I would imagine if he was healthy he would've had a fight lined up for that Australian card.

Edit: Ariel Helwani tweeted that Hunt isn't ready to return.

Brutal. Would rather just see them bump up Pat Barry. I have a feeling it could be Matt Mitrione, although they offered him the fight against Cormier and he turned it down and Dana wasn't too happy about it.

Nelson vs Kyle would be a fitting end to this season of TUF.

I don't understand why they just don't tap Daniel Cormier. Would be a main event level fight after the Mir fight get dumped, and he should still be in relatively good shape.

He's contracted to Showtime, it's not a possibility.

I'd love to see Nog step up, especially considering the long layoff he'll have upcoming due to TUF Brazil. Very evenly matched guys.

I wonder if Carwin blew his knee out running to get something to clean his pi**?

I think Carwin's body is just breaking down...I'm sure it could be attributed to steroid/ped use if he that rumor is true.

Roy Nelson vs Kimbo Slice - The TUF rematch. Or Beard vs Beard.

What about Josh Barnett? Or is he going to be on the Strikeforce super-card too?

Can't say I blame Mitrione at all for turning down a Strikeforce fight.

It would've been by far his biggest fight and probably the biggest fight he'll ever be offered. I can understand him turning down the fight as he likely would've got throttled, but just because it's Strikeforce doesn't mean it would've been a bad situation for him. He's making $10,000 to show in the UFC, he would've made far more than that headlining a Strikeforce card against Cormier. The guy's 34 years old, it's not as if he's got his whole career ahead of him to build himself up.

Mittrione it is. Him vs Nelson. Meh. Rather see Kimbo.
