Both of those guys have been on a bad run yet the UFC didn't drop them.

Unfortunately it is.

So it's a coincidence he gets cut the day he tests positive?

It's clearly because of the weed. Other fighters are other sitations, every fighter is held to a different standard with this stuff as they should be.

Nobody was a "clear winner" of any of those fights. I thought Werdum beat Overeem. Whenever fights aren't finished, there is potential room for subjective interpretation of who won each round. It's life in modern MMA.

You guys are all dumb. Clearly that fight was 30-27 Guillard.

Condit won that fight. Only Diaz fanboys would claim otherwise. As far as Aldo, it's just a matter of 49-46 of 48-47. Don't see how anyone can claim Frankie won that fight.

WHY is Noons fighting Cowboy?

Seriously why? Noons is 1-4 in his last 5 how does that get you a fight with one of the top guys in the LW division?

He was robbed by the judges in his last fight but yeah, I agree it's definitely an odd matchup.

I don't think Cerrone is a top LW.

Sorry to repost in another topic, but Rashad vs. Hendo, Shogun vs. Lil' Nog 2, and Shields/Woodley are targeted for June 15th in Winnipeg.

how is not? the guy is 6-2 in UFC including wins over siver who was on a tear before he got stopped. and the young assassin. Yes he lost but that was his 5th fight of the he was simply worn out.

Winnipeg gets that card? Damn.

We still haven't gotten one in Edmonton and if they're going to Winnipeg in June, I guess that plan to come to Calgary in the summer is out.

Just look who he beat. Siver and Guillard are the good lightweights on it. Siver's now at FW (where he belongs) and Guillard is currently in a Blackzilian induced funk. The guy is a very good lightweight but not a top guy. Guys like Pettis are top guys. I am interested to see if he'll try to stay on the feet with Noons.

Based on the other Western Canada cards I wouldn't hold your breath for that Winnipeg card to hold up. I'm sure it will end up being Joe Doerkson vs Jason MacDonald coming out of retirement once everyone finds out the card is in Winnipeg.

For now the main event is Barao vs. Wineland.

I expect the Henderson/Rashad fight to fall apart somehow.

Barao will run over Wineland but it's still shaping up to be a great card.

Weidman-Anderson is official for UFC 162 July 4th weekend in Vegas.

Thiago Silva vs. Feijao also targeted for this card.

Overeem out of 160, injured.

No brainer to slide Hunt in vs JDS.

Overreem says JDS is "scared" to fight him yet he's the one that has ****ed up both their potential bouts. And yea, Mark Hunt seems like an obvious fill-in, hopefully they make it happen.

Hunto is down to fight JDS

http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/3/6/...tos-at-ufc-160

It's all in the hands of Dana now. Im actually more excited about Hunt vs JDS than Reem vs JDS. I think Hunto actually has a better chance.

Let's forget about Hunt vs JDS. According ro Ariel Helwani the UFC will wait until Reem is healed and just push back the fight to July/August

Quote:
@arielhelwani “@danawhite: @CapnHancock @markhunt1974 @junior_cigano not lookin good. Cigano vs Overeem in the summer”
I'm not going to lie i am sort if disappointed . I honestly believe that Hunt has a better chance and currently deserve it more than Overeem. That said i still want to see JDS vs Reem. That's the fight everyone wanted last year. It's just not as appealing now since Reem stock dropped a lot after getting KOed by Bigfoot.
