That makes a whole lot more sense.
Hopefully this was a sign for him to hang em up. After these last two fights and the fact that there is really nothing left for him to accomplish in the ring.

He's desperate to return to training. 6 months for the healing process. I'm sure an additional 3-6 months to get back in the swing of training, preparing the body, readying the mind.

Looking back, my 135 Honorable Mention may go to Kyung Ho Kang instead. Judged unfairly, Asian fighters get shafted quite often. I believe he beat Caceres and Chico.

Hioki is another example. Lost three decisions in a row. I know he beat Guida in my book.

I've been going strictly UFC fighters. Would be fun to do all of MMA including Bellator and other organizations.

I love Eddie's boxing. Two wars with Chandler. Redemption against Aoki. He's coming over to UFC surely once the promotional battle ends. I'd rank him as high as 4 or 5. Khabib's wrestling is superior, receiving a stiff test in Gil. He's a slight favorite but I'm picking Gil to win.

Chandler's wrestling is obviously elite. His stand-up is getting better and better. Has the strength and KO power in his hands. I'd rank him slightly lower than Eddie. 6 or 7 range.

Shin bone bruh. His leg looked like a hockey stick. I wouldn't recommend the view mean.gif

I like the MJ vs Nate match up. Johnson is very mobile and has good enough hands to make it interesting.

Nate would have to drop him to hit a sub though cause i don't see any grappling being involved if that fight happened.

Pretty much, Rusty. I'm not sure Browne wins a single round against Cain. Could even foresee a late finish for Velasquez. Damn his wife is fine.

After what Browne did to Barnett when he went for a TD?

 

I would have said the same thing before that fight, but after watching those elbows, if Cain doesn't take him down with authority, he probably won't take him down at all.

 

The victory over Overeem didn't say much, I think AO is done off whatever he was on for the Brock fight.  He couldn't finish Silva and he couldn't finish Browne.  But the win over Barnett is a statement.  Still think Cain would win, but that's a dangerous fight for him.

I wouldn't rec it either.  More like noodle than hockey stick, it was the worst injury I've ever seen in sports, although I know there have been worse - I just haven't seen them.

 

Johnson vs. Diaz would be a great fight, but I'm not sure Johnson is ready for/deserves Diaz.  He's maybe one more fight away from that match up.  I think he could definitely win, but very few guys are going to outbox Nate Diaz.  Johnson clearly has the speed and power to make it interesting though.

Heavyweight is just too unpredictable. 1 punch is all it takes. I do believe that JDS punch was 1 in a 1,000 though.

I am convince her yambs secrete EPO in da juices smokin.gif.

Only logical explanation for Cains cardio smokin.gif

-Dana got a real problem at HW though. I can see Cain and Junior destroying dudes for the whole of 2014 and forcing a 4th fight no one wants to really see.

155 is gonna be wild in 2014 sick.gifsmokin.gif

I'd rather see Cain/JDS 4 than someone less deserving for the sake of a new matchup.

Cain/JDS 4 has got to be a loooong way off from happening.

 

Their trilogy answered all of the questions.  It broke the tie, it was almost an exact replay of their second fight except that Cain finished him this time.


JDS is like Urijah Faber or Joseph Benavidez or Frankie Edgar.  Clearly better than everyone else, but not good enough to beat the champ.

Looking forward to Gus and Manuwa. What a treat we are in for.

 

Should Gus win and Cormier beat Evans, I wonder what Dana will do for the number one contender.

 

As far as the heavy's go, it's tough to say Browne wouldn't win a round against Cain. It's tough for me to say anyone will dethrone Cain for a while, but Browne seems hungry man, he seems motivated and highly driven. Those three things combined with his skill set and size make him a very dangerous man. Like I said before though, I'd favor JDS over Browne. Doesn't mean Browne isn't up there but he has to prove it to me before I put him in that tier.

post #863 of 41029
Could be determined by the result. Meaning if Gus KO's Poster Boy and DC decisions Shad, the choice is obvious. Both decision or both KO, who knows. I have a preference for Gus. I think it's deserved after Bones 1.

I'm not sold that Cormier makes that weight cut just yet.

 

I think he can definitely make the weight, but keeping his effectiveness while doing so is another story.  He better be on top of that going into it with Evans because Evans looked fantastic against Sonnen.

post #865 of 41029
Cain adopted the wall n brawl style for Junior and that would work just aswel with Travis imo.

The head has got to be at hip level or below for Travis to get those elbows off so Cain would just need to keep his head above above his waist.


If Gus wins the rematch is happening regardless of what DC does to Rashad.

Damb, Browne might be serving up some crow should he get past Werdum.

The more likely explanation. I don't see a Lesnar comeback after diverticulosis.
