post #1321 of 34152

Bellator could but even if they offered him more money than UFC, could you actually see Gil going there? With all the comments from other fighters talking about how Bjorn is really shady and the whole Alvarez situation ticked off a lot of fighters. Gil probably wants a % of ppv shares like the big names in UFC get. Thats something that he can't get in Bellator and even if they hold a ppv it won't equal as much as in UFC.

Trust me, I want Gil to stay. We need a Bendo rematch, matchup with Pettis, Aldo if he moves to 155, Khabib.

I really hope Melendez isn't ducking Khabib when the contract dispute is sorted out.

I want Gil to stay too. I wanna see another fight between him and Thomson if he doesn't retire. Josh won the first match, Gil the second and third, although a lot of people think Josh was robbed. And Gil wouldn't accept a fourth fight while they were still in Strikeforce.

Go out for a couple hours and I come back to Twitter and the MMA world has gone nuts....

Gil not resigning? That's a damn shame.

Reem ducking JDS? (Reem told Helwani different....)

And worst of all... Rashad blows out his knee today?

Damn. mean.gif

Not a Punk fan. Subconsciously leave him out when mentioning top 155'ers.

DC/Shad wasn't meant to be. Friends. I still think Davis is more deserving at 205 after Glover than DC.

Gus rematch
Davis
Glover
DC

Chael P Sonnen already said he'd take the DC fight on short notice.

Sonnen doesn't care about losses, he's getting paid regardless. For some reason I see, Sonnen fighting DC and losing in the first round. Then if Belfort gets hurt or isn't license to fight in Vegas, Sonnen steps in for the title shot against Weidman. Stuff always works out for Sonnen when it comes to Dana.

 

But if I'm Joe Silva, I tell Jimi Manuwa to fall back and we'll find another fight for him. Then match up Gus vs. DC.

So much fail today in the MMA world :{

 

Rashad out

Reem ducking JDS

Sonnen saying he'd flake on his bad blood match with Silva

Gil possibly leaving

 

Yikes

How many times is that for Rashad? MMA injuries mean.gif
post #1333 of 34152
I was excited for rashad vs cormier. Too bad.

Since we're talking about overeem a couple of days ago, would it be possible to let him take rashad's place and fight cormier? Somehow I doubt that reem will accept hahaha.

If manuwa pulls out of the fight then we can have gus vs cormier.

Reem's a HW, brotha. DC dropped to 205 to avoid Cain. Chael's a possible replacement.

I think DC said he would fight a Heavyweight if he needed to, but sure as hell ain't gunna be Reem. He is out in Jamaica right now livin' that life.

Find another Dion Staring or Ilir Latifi if you have to...

Doubt they blow up the Sonnen/Wandy fight to save 170.

smh really wanted to see rashad and cormier go at it.
post #1337 of 34152

Sonnen could step in but it would be risky. The hope would be for him to go out there and have a quick fight with no injuries or suspensions. But like you said, no way they scrap the Wandy/Sonnen fight. For one, the fight between him and Wandy is anticipated cause of all the heat and trash talking between those two. And its gonna help them sell Fight Pass subscriptions since the TUF season is gonna be shown exclusively on there. But they're also gonna want Sonnen on the Weidman card because the Memorial Day card is always one of their biggest cards, they want to pump up Weidman to superstar status especially with the absence of Silva and GSP, and Sonnen being on the card means people are going to buy it, so more people see him vs. Belfort.

Cormier said in his tweet he would take even a heavyweight. I hope he still fights at ufc 170 or in any of the upcoming events with a ranked fighter. I really want to see him dance with good LHW's.

Let's see if cormier calls out every fighter with a twitter account just like tim kennedy hahaha.

Vitors fight depends on if vegas will give him trt exemption
post #1340 of 34152
Chael needs to stop fighting at LHW. He's able to manhandle folks @ 185 but gets bullied easily @ 205.
post #1341 of 34152

Chael would get ragdolled by Cormier. :lol

Exactly... Chael said after the Rashad fight that Rashad was just too big for him and he couldn't get up once he was on top of him.  Fighting Cormier would be nothing more than Chael looking for a paycheck.

Kinda funny. One of the top contenders can only fight if he's allowed his testosterone. All while dana talks bad about trt.
post #1345 of 34152

Wandy got his wish. Sonnen vs Silva fight moved to a May 31st card on FS1 in Brazil.

Just read this on Dave Farra's twitter. I guess Dana is doing a scrum or something with Vegas reporters. 

Quote:
 Dana: We are working on "uniforms" for fighters so they don't have to scrape up sponsor $$. But it's not done yet, in the works.

 

What does this mean? That all fighters will wear the same UFC shorts with Harley Davidson, MetroPCS, and Tapout logos on them? And what happens with fighters like Jon Jones and others that have deals with Nike, Reebok, and other big name sponsors?

Lebron has a Nike deal but wears Adidas jerseys. I guess it will be up to the sponsors that are felt in the cold.

This a scummy move my the UFC unless they increase fighter pay to make up for the loss in sponsorship money.

I said this a million times to friends, their needs to be a Fighters union and a CBA.

Fair enough. I stand corrected on that note.

I just thought it would be counterproductive for DC to take an interim fight at HW when he wants a title shot against Bones quickly as possible. His window is smallest compared to Gus, Glover, Davis.
