Exactly. Especially using the term "GOAT". GSP has some work to do both within his weight class and above to catch that label.

The best pound-for-pound right now is another story though, and GSP was right there in the conversation with Silva and Jones. If he is able to get back in the cage and re-establish himself, he'll be right back there again. Right now guys like GSP, Aldo and JDS have guys like Condit, Barao and Overeem to worry about.

Isn't Barao 135?

Ahhhh my bad, should be Cruz. Not sure why I thought Barao was holding the interim to Aldo. I suppose Aldo has Edgar on his radar though.

Feels like just yesterday when he beat Rick Story and had so much hype.

That's crazy. Marquardt gets cut from the UFC, Diaz gets the book thrown at him by an athletics commission, and this isn't even made public.

It would've been pretty funny to see Griffin run out of the commission crying before they made their decision, too.

Cutting someone (CB) after a questionable stoppage is, in the words of the great Ron Burgandy, is bush league.

Brenneman isn't an exciting fighter and he has been finished in the first round in 3 of his last 4 fights. Him getting cut isn't all that surprising.

Yeah I don't really think it's all that controversial.

Brenneman is a grinder but not good enough of one to stick around. He will do well elsewhere.

Fight of the year. It will make Hendo/Shogun look like Kongo/Jordan.

I kind of figured Brenneman would get one more fight, kind of surprised he got cut. That said if he can string together a few straight wins, I'd expect him to be back.

Brenneman has been a company man and his losses (aside from the quick early stoppage to Noke) have been against some of the best in the WW division. I would have liked to see him get one more fight.

Because Dan Hardy has a lot of fans, and can main event lower-tier cards. He also was facing a high level of competition during that time. Brenneman has never even finished a fight in the UFC and doesn't put on exciting fights, unless you count the ones he's getting knocked out in.

He'll be back in the UFC within a year anyway, filling in on a short notice fight. I can see why he should deserve one more fight, but as someone who thinks the UFC should cut about 100 guys I am perfectly fine with these kinds of cuts.

Just watched Bautista make his MMA debut and have some words for those who might be interested in watching it;



Dont.


Possibly the most disgraceful fight I have ever wasted my life watching.
