Not really a fan of that stoppage.
I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.

Homie was gonna get knocked out anyway.. If anything herb extended his career he should thank him
post #1205 of 40969
As I see it, Urijah got two options

-Cut of his arm, move down to 125 and fight Mighty Mouse

-Cut off his dong, and fight Ronda.
post #1206 of 40969

or he could hope that aldo challenges pettis and wins and then just sneak back into 145

 

who knows if aldo would be allowed to hold 2 titles

post #1207 of 40969
Aldo goes up.. Barao goes up.. Faber stays 135 and he can compete
post #1208 of 40969
Early stoppage no matter how you look at it. Yeah, Faber wasn't looking good, but he was still intelligently defending himself.

Barao or Aldo will move up in the next 12 months and Faber could sniff one more shot at gold.

Somebody is getting finished if Aldo/Pettis happens. Don't even care who, that fight is a dream booking for a fight fan.

post #1215 of 40969

169 sucked.

post #1216 of 40969
I thought Faber was reaching with that Dillashaw shoutout, but in reality, that fight makes sense next at 135.

it was bound to suck. nobody cared. ufc should never have a event before the super bowl in the same city. Usually the UFC before the Super Bowl was their biggest card especially in Vegas, where the money was trading hands and they got more buzz. 

post #1218 of 40969

So both Aldo and Dana are up for the super fight with Pettis. Aldo would vacate the title at 145. But if he loses against Pettis, he can move back down to 145 and get the next shot for the belt.

post #1219 of 40969
I was always curious about fighters and their walking around weight... Does Aldo really walk around at 170? That's almost as bad as Kenny Florian fighting at featherweight.
post #1220 of 40969

Aldo being around 170 sounds reasonable. Johny Hendricks weighs around 220 lbs when he's not fighting. Which is about a 50 lb cut to 170. And Anthony Johnson used to be around 235 lbs while cutting to 170. But he did miss weight at 170 and 185 multiple times. 

post #1221 of 40969
I knew fighters cut, but some of these numbers are insane. All of this makes me respect Frankie Edgar for fighting guys 30-40 lbs heavier than him.
post #1222 of 40969
Just got back home from UFC 169. Everyone thought. The Faber Barao fight was early stoppage. 70% of the people left IMMEDIATELY after the finish in disgust. Only the Barao fans stuck around for the post fights interviews. This card wasn't the best. Trujillo Varner was the only memorable fight.

You what brah, you're right, I forgot about Livington's knee, his was worst and no contact. I stand corrected. They told homeboy it might have to be amputated sick.gifmean.gif

The fact ole girl tore her hamstring too is throwing me off.
post #1224 of 40969
You better than that Herb tired.gif

Barao forced his hand with eye contact and gestures. Herb should have warned Faber and give him another 10 secs to work out of it. **** happens though unfortunately. I thought Faber would edge a decision but Barao keeps on wrecking dudes. He's No. 1 p4p in my book.

Aldo looked great for 4 rounds. Real sharp. He's almost predictable at this point but he's so athletic and polished in the things he does it's hard to overcome.

Overeem looked real good too imo. Surprised he was happy to sit in Mir's guard seeing how he wouldn't entertain it with Werdum. Fabricio that much nicer on the ground?? Anyway I heard Dana was hurling slander his way about the performance but i think he's just mad that he's gotta keep cutting him a cheque laugh.gif That being said he'll probably make him fight JDS next out of spite.

Oh and Varner vs Trujillo was madness mean.gif

Faber is all class. Herb looked like he already knew he had made a terrible call in the ring.

 

It will be nice watching Aldo and Pettis because I'm sure Aldo won't go in there just to point fight. Pettis will force his hand.

post #1226 of 40969
Be comedy if Aldo just wrestle***** Pettis when they fight. Dana would probably cut him on the spot laugh.gif
post #1227 of 40969
Trujillo definitely has some new fans after that fight, including me pimp.gif . I kinda like Aldo's technical style, dude isn't tentative as some sherdoggers was saying. I just think he was more cautious and not trying to blow his wad, especially while lamas was throwing those ViToRT kicks
post #1228 of 40969
I wonder why team alpha male fighters always come short in title fights. Three of their fighters who last fought for a title was finished in round 1 (faber vs barao, benavidez vs mighty mouse, chad mendes vs jose aldo). Must be some kind of curse hahaha.

Btw joseph benavides vs tim elliott was added to ufc 172. And jessica eye is suspended for a year because of failed drug test.
post #1229 of 40969

I swear I watch every UFC event but when it comes to 125'ers its always "who is that guy?". Except for Mighty Mouse, Benavides, Pickett, Dodson and Uncle Creepy it feels like most of them are unknown. Probably why Mighty Mouse is always gonna be relegated to defending his belt on TUF finales or UFC on Fox cards unless he's co-main eventing another ppv with another championship fight.
