And the under card is very good if you are a Canadian & interested in our other fighters not named GSP. Mein debuting against the always game miller, cote dropping to 170, carvallo will put on another good performance & makdessi vs cruickshamk will be a slobber knocker.

I don't know why he would be complaining, the 3 WW matchups make up for the other 2, one of which will be an excellent fight (Fletcher/Ricci).

$200 for GSP/Diaz alone is worth it, it's one of the most anticipates fights of all time.

This has to be a joke. Jones is on his way to HW, he'd have to shave his beard and cut off an arm to make 192. 205 is probably hard enough to cut to.

If you want to move up and fight a guy, then do so at his weight, show some Gracie heart. Technique trumps size if you truly are the baddest man on the planet.

It's downright embarrassing. Anderson has fought three guys at 205, and had his most recent fight there, and 2 of those 3 guys were huge 205ers, yet he wants Jones at 190. It's just pathetic.

He also wants GSP at a catchweight as well but 190 is ridiculous.

So Mighty Mouse/Moraga cancelled as DJ is hurt.

Also... this is very weird so going to break it down:

If Aldo beats Pettis, he wants to move up and fight Bendo. Bendo is okay with this and Aldo has been guaranteed this fight if he wins.
If Pettis beats Aldo, he too wants to move up and fight Bendo for the title. He has not been guaranteed this but he wants the same deal Aldo has. Bendo is okay with fighting Pettis too.
If Bendo beats Gil, this **** gets crazy. He wants to move up and fight GSP for his title. So....lets start shifting everyone up a division.

In other news, Rumble is now fighting at super heavyweight...which is still lighter than Rumbleweight.


Oh...and watching UFC Tonight and Anderson speaks perfect English and he understands it. So cut the ****ing translator Ed Soares **** please.

Dana now says that Pettis wouldn't be allowed to move up and fight at 155 right away if he beats Aldo and Bendo won't move up period right now. Too many fights for him in that division.

Also, Suga vs Hendo is being talked about in the UFC.

Also Matt Riddle failed another drug test and was released. Don't know what drug, but knowing him there is a 99.999% probability it was weed.

That is correct.

He'll be in WSOF in no time. I don't really see many, if any, UFC fighters going to Bellator unless they're very low name guys. While Riddle isn't a huge name, he's had every fight in his career in the UFC and has a good record. He'll leave, prove he can piss without failing, and then be back.

He does? I'll admit I always wanted Bendo to move up but a title shot at GSP is kind of too much. Maybe after he beats Aldo and Pettis... he has only defended the belt once. GSP on the other hand?

Dana White already shot down Ben moving up and said he has lots of guys to clear out at 155.

Exactly. Still crazy though that he ALREADY wants that fight. Especially when to me, Frankie is still champ.

/cue people coming in saying "BUT MMA JUDGES TOLD ME BENDO WON!"

I think it's interesting that we're seeing a lot of guys talking about jumping weight classes, but Bendo would get absolutely SMOKED by GSP. I really don't have a whole lot of interest in that fight.

Two of my favorite fighters, always an exciting fight when either one is involved. Fun matchup, although I don't see how Jorgensen wins it.

Here's MY thought on it:

It's cool if you smoke for legit reasons but you have a ****ing job where it's clearly not legal and you continue to do it. That makes you an idiot. You failed one test. You KNEW you couldn't keep smoking and fighting. And you did.

That all may be true, but he had a lucrative job and knew the rules. He has a young family he has to support and he has made a choice to purposely violate the rules, no matter how dumb and hypocritical some of us think the rules are.

I am all for sticking to your values and morals but not at the expense of hurting my family. I think he has young triplets or something, and he's decided that smoking weed is more important than providing for them.

The guy puts on entertaining fights and was coming off a big win. 8-3 in the UFC. Probably was set up nicely going forward, and throws it away.

Who else fights at Rumbleweight? Minowaman is the only guy I can think of.

I hate this TRT, crap. It's the belly-putter of MMA.

Seriously a joke, No cough medicine! Here's some testosterone to inject so you can be quicker, stronger, have better endurance, work harder, lift more, train longer, etc.


I hope they come up with a Weed Replacement Therapy. I can't get as high as I used to.

Weed clearly isn't the main reason for Riddle being cut.
