    He will be fighting at 185#. If he's going to gas out anyways he might as well do it without having to cut weight.

    There was talk Phil Baroni might fight on the Boston UFC card but he just announced his retirement via Twitter. We'll see if it takes.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    I don't know if it was posted here, but Anthony Johnson's camp is considering a jump to 185. His knee isn't healing properly and they think its because of the stress of cutting 50+ lbs to 170.

    I think 185 will serve him well, however, he needs to learn how to stop takedowns.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    The timing of this works out for Rua and Machida, who may return at this event. Rua vs. winner of Evans/Jackson, Machida vs. the loser, or someone else, such as Jon Jones.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    So you're saying Rua/Jackson II @ 119 ;]

    I think its time for Bader to take a step up in competition.

    Who is in the LHW picture right now outside of the top 4 (Machida, Shogun, Rampage, Rashad)? There is Lil' Nog, Bader, Cane, Thiago Silva,.....Jon Jones? Forrest?

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    Bader is injury prone. Dunno if he can ever get his career on track.

    Jones is definitely in the picture given the UFC's reluctance to recycle contenders, save for Couture.

    Anderson Silva is also willing to fight anyone at LHW not named Machida or Nogueira but he has two fights lined up at middleweight so that won't be for at least a year.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    Rampage has told Dana he wants to get back into the cage ASAP. Dana says Machida is a possible opponent. I think he'll get Machida or Griffin (Rampage's next fight should be on par with Griffin's return) next. Good for Page. According to him, he's done with Hollywood for awhile. He commended Rashad for his win and game plan. Seriously impressed, I thought for sure Rampage would be childish and give some horse shit excuses for his loss.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    ^ Well he gave a few, saying he was rusty from the layoff, distracted by Fox, etc.. But he was mostly humble in defeat.

    In related news Dana White is going to try to put together a Rampage vs. Machida fight next.

    If Anthony Johnson doesn't move up yet, him vs. Dan Hardy needs to happen.
