Yeah true. I think Henderson has a better record and more quality wins as of late than Rashad. Rashad waiting forever and then getting injured didn't help either.

Last 5 opponents for both men.

Henderson:

Shogun Rua (win)
Fedor (win)
Cavalcante (win)
Babalu (win)
Shields (loss)


Rashad:

Ortiz (win)
Jackson (win)
Silva (win)
Machida (loss)
Griffin (win)

Also, BJ called out Diaz.

If these two fight again, it'll be the same outcome.

Hopefully BJ's twitter got hacked or something, cause that is ridiculous

BJ's ramblings are pretty dumb, but hopefully it means he's un-retired. Would still like to see him at 155, maybe he could take on Nate.

BJ's twitter wasn't hacked.

Quote:
Pedro Carrasco - and there is a reason why he posted it, He is fired up because now that the holidays are over and a lot of his post-fight distractions are behind him he has nothing to do but think about things and he is not happy with the way he performed in his last several fights.

I am not here to make excuses for him, but I am pretty sure people, at least with some sense of intelligence, can identify that the BJ that fought Edgar, Fitch and Diaz was not the same Penn that fought the Diego's and Florians of the world -

Things changed, but as it sits right now, he is back. That killer mentality and fire is back and it's been brewing for a while now and today's tweet is a result of it just boiling over!

I don't think it's any coincidence that they haven't announced Hendos next fight.

If Rashad beats Davis, then it will be Rashad/Jones for sure with Hendo fighting a top guy. Maybe the winner of Rampage/Bader or a rematch with Shogun.

If Davis wins, then it will be Henderson/Jones.

I think its already done, Henderson v Jones. Rashad/Davis winner gets next. Timing works out well.

They just want the illusion of the Fox fight being for the title shot for promo purposes.

I'm not surprised by Cybrog testing positive for steroids. Womens MMA takes another hit.

Also, I'm a Penn fan but he needs to shut up. After the fight he's hugging Diaz and now he's talking **** about him on twitter?

I think it's unfortunate that she was taking them and hopefully it's not too massive a blow to WMMA.

Womens MMA takes another blow. The sooner Zuffa gets rid of it the better.

Dana White says Cyborg's pos. test "pretty much kills" the 145 division. She'll be stripped of the title. "We'll see what happens"
They should just have one women's division. Tate, Rousey, and Kaufman are the only good fighters so it's dumb to have two separate divisions.

I think that's what'll end up happening (assuming it survives).

I'm definitely buying the theory that the Cyborg failed test will save womens' MMA as Gina will probably return. Without Cyborg in the picture, she once again has the ability to run the division and be a much prettier face of women's' mma.

As sexist as it may sound, Corano/Tate/Rousey are what will carry the division to the next level (see the rise of womens' tennis).

Will she return if her film career takes off though?

I'd bet a significant amount of money that Zuffa gets rid of the female divisions entirely within a few years. Promoting these sloppy brawls between women does nothing to help legalize the sport in places like New York, where politicians are already turned off by mens MMA.

I agree. I think her future in MMA depends largely on how well Haywire does.

Doubtful.

Fake punches hurt much less than real ones.

She could probably make more money as a sexy action hero anyway.

Her face is too pretty to be punched.
