The MMA Thread: DON'T ASK 4 STREAMS & NO GIFS- Huge Bellator Card: SAT 6/24 on Spike/PPV @5PM - Page 232

post #6931 of 41029

I think when the Diaz/Silva fight was made Silva just wanted big/popular fights and opponents. He was saying that he was done fighting for the belt and he was leaving that for Machida and Jacare. But then things changed with Dana saying he'd get a title shot if he won, so his mindset kinda changed and he wanted the MW belt back.

I think Dana could change his mind. Depending on everything that happens with Rockhold/Machida and Jacre/Romero, if one of those 4 looks incredible I could see them getting the next title shot

 

Depending on how Anderson looks, I mean, if Anderson gets a close decision with Nick and doesn't look all that impressive, I don't think that would automatically put Anderson in a title fight

post #6933 of 41029
At this point, the division is REALLY deep...

EVEN if anderson gets a third weidman, let alone beats him....he wont hold the title long.

basically seeing the "jeter" tour for andy, maybe fight 2-3 more times...some big names...all beatable for him...then go out on top.

-or- loose the 3rd to chris and retire.

well see.

Dana was the one pumping this title shot nonsense. And Machida and Jacare were both asked that question. They're both pursuing the title so at this point in time they don't mind fighting Anderson.

Anderson is the one caught in his feelings, acting like they're all not professional fighters, fighting in the same division and in the title picture.

That's why I'll at least give Faber and Dillashaw credit for at least not flat out saying no.

At the same time, I don't want grab butt like Cowboy/Bendo...lol.

I'm looking forward to TRtitor versus Weidman. I feel like Weidman, after JBJ, is the champion who can really carve out a legacy. Pettis can too...but he's always injured.
post #6935 of 41029
Yeah Dana definitely shouldn't be pumping a title shot at all, just make it a fun fight for the fans. Hopefully they think twice about that one.
post #6936 of 41029
I can't wait to see to see Diaz and Anderson come back after long layoffs

even crazier when you consider the fact he only fought once in 2012 and has only fought twice in the past three years and hasn't won a fight in nearly 4 years.

Very crazy

 

He should be fresh if anything else, lol

 

I would say more like 3 years since his last win and he's only fought two times in those three years

 

Dude is at that point in his career where he can cry until he gets things his way I guess. Just don't put him against a wrestler lol

I'm horrible at math so who knows :lol

 

Also, look at the 3 other fights on the main card. How the **** does that happen? Those fights are rancid for a PPV :x I can't blame people for not wanting to buy the card. Jesus

Alves/Mein should be good, as well as Lauzon/Iaquinta. But i would have preferred Linekar/McCall on the ppv instead of Leites Boetsch

Imagine if Silva beats Diaz, then Weidman, then Bones eek.gif

Weidman is really good.

Still not sold though.

Between Jacare, Gegard, Luke, and Yoel....he got some heavy defending to do.

I really believe if Jacare gets past yoel, he would drown Chris in 5 rounds.

The fights between Silva vs Weidman is the reason I started replacing boxing with MMA in my TV screen recently. I want to see Weidman put in work these next couple fights

I'm not 100% sold on Weidman yet. I think he has the tools to be one of the greats but it feels like he's always hurt. It just doesn't get the coverage like Pettis when he's hurt. Before the Silva fight, he was out with a shoulder injury. Then a knee issue pushed back the Machida fight, and a broken hand pushed back the Belfort fight to next month.

He won't even get past Weidman, so it doesn't even matter.

Weidman has had Silva's number twice. Nothing would be different the third go around unless Anderson has gotten some amazing wrestling defense.

JBJ just abused a former Olympian after a coco filled December. Jon has a huge reach advantage and very good wrestling.

Honestly, I respect Anderon's legacy. But at this point I'm more interested in the murderers row in front of Weidman.

Admittedly, he's had some bad injuries. But Evans, Cruz, GSP (despite retiring), Velazquez, Rousey And others are in the same boat. MMA is a rough sport. Prior to the Porier fight, Connor came back from a bad injury.

I'm readying my body for Anderson's return

post #6959 of 41029

Aldo v McGregor is being pushed back from the proposed May date to sometime later in the summer according to McGregor's coach. I guess they put the fight on the 4th of July card.
