    ^ Hardy/Condit and Bisping getting KTFO would be great for free.

    I think he takes the fight. He's a true fighter and I'm sure he doesn't want the Machida loss hanging over him forever. Machida has shown vulnerabilities in his last two outings that I'm sure Greg Jackson & Co. can pick up on and exploit (aka. wrestle him for five rounds). Then when Shogun is ready to come back in eight/ten months they can have a bigger, title unification fight.

    No! Dana promised the fans a BIG matchup that is definitely PPV-worthy. None of these fights are PPV worthy. He owes us Silva/Belfort or something like that. A champion card.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    Also, I'm just wondering right now--how does Lyoto earn another title shot right away? He just got KTFO.

    Rashad should be fighting for the title because he was promised a shot. But he should probably be fighting someone else.

    That someone else, IMHO, should be Jon Jones supposing Jones gets past Matyushenko.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    I suggested something similar in the UFC Live thread and I think that makes the most sense, but one thing I didn't think of at the time was the fight camps, don't Rashad and Jones train together under Greg Jackson? That could be a problem with making that matchup.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    You're correct, they are both Jackson fighters, however as far as I know Evans works mostly with Grudge/Trevor Wittman whereas Jones is with Team Bombsquad and Tristar/Firas Zahabi. I don't know if the two have ever trained together.

    Brock/Cain won't headline 119--from Dana's mouth.

    Re: UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship [Upcoming Events]

    That's a good one, EXCEPT Big Nog loves Bader and was his coach. So it seems unlikely he'd let his brother fight him.

    UFC 121 to be @ the Honda Center in Anaheim.

    I might have to go depending on the card. I am passing up on the Jones UFC Live card.
