How the hell is Weidman favored here?

While that may be true, he hasn't fought a guy like Maia before.

I agree that people should jump on those odds, but the guy is as good of a prospect as there is out there. I'm surprised the odds are that high, but not surprised he's favored.

According to his manager, his passport's expired and he needs to get a new one before he can fight in the States again.
Though he did also mention that he was fatigued given that he's fought two UFC fights and at ADCC in the last 4 months or so.

Velasquez vs Silva is apparently off. Velasquez vs Mir might be in the works for UFC on Fox 3.

Cain would've destroyed him anyway.

The funny thing about the UFC on Fox 3 show is that it's scheduled to take place on May 5th, Cinco De Mayo. Dana will milk the Mexican demographic as much as he can.

That's Mayweather weekend. I'm guessing they will have an earlier start time and have the main event finish before Mayweather's fight just like they did with Pacquiao? Doesn't matter who fights on that card, it would be dumb to go head to head with Mayweather.

Big Foot isn't on Cain's level and he should be fighting someone like Carwin anyways so I'm glad they canceled that fight. Cain vs Mir is a much better fight.

They would have to start earlier no matter what.

I accidently clicked edit post on your post. That's why you'll see my name at the bottom of it, still getting the hang of being a mod.

Add Jones vs the winner of Evans/Davis and throw in a sold Co-Main and you've got a pretty good card.

UFC 145 is looking very, very deep - should be a fun undercard. Jon Jones in the main event and a good co-main and we've got the makings of a fun one.

Maximo Blanco is going to fight Marcus Brimage on that one too. Two great fight announcements.

Haha, I used to do that all the time when I first got Mod Powers.
145 is starting to shape up to be a pretty good card, let's hope it's Jones vs Evans (just because I either want Evans to live up to all his trashtalk or get destroyed).

I can also confirm Gegard Mousasi vs. Mike Kyle for the March 3 event. It's shaping up into a pretty good card. #Strikeforce
Good fight.

This is a deep card. Any one of those bolded fights are good enough to be on the main card or one of the Spike lead in prelims (which they don't do anymore). Now just add the Jones vs Evans/Davis main event and a solid co-main and it will be one of the strongest cards all year on paper at least.

Fedor in talks to fight Bobby Lashley.

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2012/1/23...ashley-in-2012

Some more gems from Matthew Roth in this one.

Quote:
During his time in Strikeforce, he was criticized for taking easy fights, with most viewing him as an expensive can-crusher. He'd deflect this accusations by saying that he is new to the business and taking his time to develop. He'd then add that if people had a problem with how he's handling his career, he'd like to fight Fedor instead.
Quote:
Lashley would obviously enter the fight as an underdog, though he may have more of a fighting chance than fans would give him credit for. His wrestling is solid for heavyweight and he has displayed some active ground and pound.
Quote:
I just hope that M-1 isn't using him to try and still sell Fedor as the fighter he once was.
This man get's paid to write.

Yeah, I realized that when I was looking for tickets to the Strikeforce event. Hopefully I'll be able to make through without people around me looking stuff up on their phones and talking about it.

Our 3rd FOX fight May 5th at the IZOD Center in New Jersey will feature Nate Diaz vs Jim Miller!!! Nate = 3 sub and 5 FON Jim = 3 SON!!
I love this fight. This is what I was hoping for when Jim Miller won. I think the winner should get the next title shot too.

I don't know about this being the main event though......

Yeah it doesn't seem Fox Main Event quality, but it will be an awesome fight. It will be interesting what else they throw on the card.

Should be a hell of a fight. I won't be surprised to see Cain/Mir as the Main Event for that card.
