    Apparently none of yall wanted to make the thread, I know there's a lot of regular MMA heads here so let's keep this one clean and tidy. I'll do my best.

    Per Meth:
    Seems weird, but I assume just steer clear of posting anything questionable and we should be fine. Anything PPV related I'd assume is the sticking point.

    The major thing I wonder about is gifs. Sherdog posts gifs all day and they are still around.

    Road to the Octagon for Johnson/Benavidez II is on at noon today on Fox for those interested. That card looks stacked

    Is is ok to post youtube videos? My last post on the previous thread was 2 youtube videos. Next thing I know is the thread got locked. Just to be clear about the new thread.

    I just checked that DMCA complaint and it seems all the links listed were from backdoor sites.

    Can we not link media direct from UFC homepage, UFC youtube channel, FOX sports and other media outlets??

    What is it about this askren that the ufc doesn't want him in their roster? I see his name in various mma sites, all saying the ufc (or dana white) doesn't want him.

    Dodson is injured and out of his next match. And I was excited that I can watch him again.

    Dodson only one with major KO power at 125.

    Askren is elite at wrestling. Boring lay and pray. Virtually no stand up although Roufus improved that aspect the last two fights.

    If he wins, it's ugly.

    Well the flyweight division is a little thin. I wonder if they can find a replacement for him.

    Not much activity in here since the birth of this new thread. I can only imagine before-during-after ufc 168 on how many pages this thread will jump.

    Benevidez has some power and that's why I hope he wins. I just haven't been able to get into the flyweight division. The top guys have tremendous quickness and athleticism but to me it just doesn't translate to entertaining fighting.

    Johnson is really elusive and has a frenetic pace but for the life of me I'm just not entertained by him. I really try though hahahaha

    It would probably be best just to link to youtube video if they are official UFC media.

    Stay completely clear of unofficial stuff that is not from them, don't even link it.

    Slightly easier fight than a Gus rematch even with Chuck's tutelage.

    Step one in challenges for Bones in 2014. Gus rematch, Davis, DC.

    I believe this will be another stiff test for jones. I could see glover taking him to 5 rounds with his defensive wrestling, not sure about his cardio but I know he isn't afraid to stand in there and trade and keep coming forward. Glad he's getting a shot
