Knew that Chael/Wandy season was going to be nuts. From what I read, Wandy spit at Chael, Chael pushed Wandy, Wandy swung, and Chael P. shot for the double
There HAS to be video.
I'm listening to the interview Jonny Hendricks did on MMA Hour this morning and it confirmed what I thought.. dude is really kind of whiny. Don't get me wrong, he has reason to be, but he comes off as unlikeable to me. I want to like him, he's a great fighter and seems like a good family man, but he just seems to be like nails on a chalk board.
According to Dana,
But Pena's coach is saying something completely different.
And in other news, they're trying to put the Silva vs. Sonnen fight on the Weidman vs Belfort card. Makes sense to me. Sonnen is huge draw and they're gonna try to build Weidman up. So have Sonnen on the card so a bunch of people can see him fight.
Ceronne needs a top 10 guy. It'll be fireworks regardless
Watching the UFC 169 Scrum now, Dana saying he is giving the green light to Aldo to vacate the belt and move up to fight Pettis. Sounds like Dana is ready make the fight since Thomson lost. Aldo told Ariel that he was waiting for the green light to move up in weight... I'm all for it. Dana went in on Nate Diaz lol, said "he's 1 and 3 in his last fights, he won't take the fight with Khabib, he's just waiting on the sideline to wait til someone falls off so he can get a title shot"
Bisping is going to fight Tim Kennedy
This Pena story is starting to get a little weird. On one side you have Pena's coach and training partners saying it happened during a regular training session for her. Supposedly she and this 135 lb guy were training, they were up against the cage, the guy went for her back and got his hooks in and she tried a switch and that's when it all happened. But on the other side you have Dana saying some guy was ragging on her cause she was wearing her TUF gear, then jumped on her back and assaulted her.
But her full injury is devastating:
And if Aldo wins and moves up to 155 lbs, there's a chance Barao could move up to 145 lbs. Last year he was talking about how Aldo wants to move up and he wants to move up too. And the only reason he's at 135 lbs is because when he signed his deal with WEC, his trainer made him move down in weight to avoid the conflict.
