Maybe he's banging her.

I don't see much of a bright future for women in the UFC and I doubt Dana does either, so he'll try and milk Rousey for all she's worth and that includes putting her in the spotlight even if she doesn't deserve to be there.

Well, that's one PPV I definitely won't be purchasing. I'm not opposed to women's fighting, it's entertaining to an extent, but I'm certainly not paying to watch it. No chance. I can live with the fight being a co-main event, but the main event of a PPV is really, really pushing it IMO.
If its Cyborg or Carano, people will tune in. Otherwise, we all know that Rousey wins by first round armbar and the other girl looks like a complete jackass for even thinking they can compete with her. And therein lies the real problem in WMMA - absolutely zero depth. And not only that but those three aren't even all in the same division.

Take it for what its worth, but my uncle is best buddy with GSP's uncle, and like you said he wants no part of Anderson Silva

That sucks. Still should be a fun card but losing Weidman, Sonnen and Maynard hurts.

I think the UFC's female division will have come and gone by the end of 2014.

Brutal that they are even bringing it in. Buy part of Invicta and call it WUFC Invicta, but this sucks.

Agreed. As for the first comment, he's at least doing his best to try to. The infatuation with her is a bit disturbing

Todd Duffee makes his return against Phil De Fries at UFC 155.

Never thought Duffee would return to the UFC.

I don't think Kongo/Struve is confirmed. Still a great card though.

Cool, mostly because I'll get to see Mousasi fight again, wonder how well he has recovered from his ACL tear.

My expectation, enough to be able to completely destroy Kyle on the feet.

Cholish out, Jeremy Stephens back in against Yves Edwards. Let's hope Stephens doesn't have any warrants out for him in Washington State...

The Phillipou/Boetsch match up is much more competitive at least.

No ****. Why would you fight on a card when you know the company is going to die soon and you can make way more money fighting for a much better promotion?
