Mr. Wonderful's stand-up, specifically boxing, much improved training with Gus.

Champ, your right, Davis' striking has improved, but they aren't training together full-time anymore.

Davis knows the only way Rumble can beat him is if he lands a big shot. Phil will grind out a decision.

I personally would like to see Rumble KO him, and maybe Rumble can learn some defensive wrestling techniques from Evans. I am not fond of Davis' fighting style at all. Davis would have to be a fool to leave any openings though

Agreed. Have never been excited for a Phil Davis fight. Dude's wrestling is dominant, though.

Cowboy says he was 7 beers deep at that last press conference... laugh.gifroll.gifsmokin.gif

Not actual fight news, but does anyone else see Rousey leaving UFC and going the Carano way? She just did The Expendables 3 and Fast and Furious 7 and now she signed on to be in the Entourage movie and some other movie in which she may be one of the leads.

Gina was never the fighter Ronda is though. Ronda's movie roles it completely tied to her UFC fame. If she starts losing, them roles will dry up quick

Gina can throw dem yambs at any director, actor or producer for a role. And to be honest, right now the UFC needs Gina more that she needs them.

Ronda is one of the top 3 stars in the UFC right now, as bad as that sounds...

As long as Zuffa can pay her to stick around, I think she will. But that new Hollywood deal she signed today seems like she is working her way out of the sport slowly but surely.

I would say it's a possibility, but also that Rousey was born to fight. She seems to have it in her DNA while Carano sort of just fell into it (Muay Thai)

 

I would say Rousey would have to really start to go on a bad losing streak for her to call it quits. She seems to really appreciate being the face of women's MMA and seems to revel in the fight business and all that it brings. Anything can happen in MMA though, I think I forget to remember that fighting and training can take such a toll on the body and spirit. Randomly retiring wouldn't be shocking to me at all.

That Thiago Silva thing is crazy. He really went in there cause he thought his wife was cheating on him.

Quote:

According to sources close to BJPENN.COM, we have learned that upon hearing of his wives possible infidelities with her Jiu Jitsu coach, Pablo Popovich, the top UFC light-heayweight barged into their school gun-drawn, looking for Pablo. 

He then left the scene to barricade himself inside his home while the Broward Sheriff department SWAT team places a perimeter outside the home.

Silva situation is exactly the reason why you never smashed a married woman mean.gif

Wonder how this will impact his career

Googled her. Regretted immediately. No offense to Silva

His UFC career is done. They terminated his contract.

He's always seemed like a psycho to me. Wouldn't doubt if some people in Brasil have gone missing because of him.

Conversely......

Hoping there are many better days ahead for Thiago Silva. Have always found him to be likable, genuine.

Thinking about the fight, Khabib is going to take RDA's soul.

Davis and Gus know a fight between each other is imminent. Helped each other with their striking and BJJ respectively.

I've got Mr. Wonderful over Rumble by boring decision. Utilize wrestling, avoid power shots. Conservative approach to secure a victory and march to a title shot.

That's Cowboy, man. Drinking beer, riding bulls, wake boarding. He's an adrenaline junkie. Keeps him feeling alive.

Just read the complete Thiago Silva story. That dude has a lot of mental issues, Dana said Silva would never fight in the UFC again. I was looking forward to his fight with OSP too.

was looking forward to a possible match against shogun. too bad he's crazy, he was actually fun to watch.
post #1282 of 41029
They have that dude that wears a Capone hat dropping to 205 to fight OSP now... Cool, I guess.

Was never a Thiago Silva fan. There is a point where the drug suspensions and losses made him dispensable. Wasn't great for the sport to have a dude with neck tats throwing out the throat slash after a win either...

Ok thanks. I was too excited for the main event I haven't even bothered to look at the undercard hahaha. Plus, the number 3 ranked middleweight doesn't get much attention from what I see.
