  • Is Arlovski done as a top flight Heavyweight?
  • After losing to Josh Barnett by rear naked choke in the 3rd round of his main event fight…
  • Arlovski landed only 51 strikes to 112 from Josh Barnett
  • Ouch
  • Alexander Gustafsson was victorious in his return to the Octagon
  • Beating Jan Blachowicz by unanimous decision
  • Ryan Bader put down Illir Latifi in the second round
  • Ashlee Evans delivers some elbows in Round 3 to win her bout by TKO over Veronica Macedo
  • Oh and Heavyweights, Jarjis Danho and Christian Colombo lugged their weigt around to a majority draw
  • So is that a win-win or a lose-lose
  • Either way
  • Boooooo….
GSP Speaks
  • Many of the GSP Detractors point to his inability to finish his opponents
  • Prior to retiring, GSP won his last 7 fights by decision
  • Yeah… 7… by decision
  • GSP told bloodyelbow.com that he lost the fire to run over his opponents
  • His focus has always been on winning however it was no longer about destroying his fellow competitors
  • And it was that lack of fire that played a role in his decision to retire
  • Anyhow, it looks like that fire has returned… he’s looking for an opportunity to fight
  • And has promised to give Nick Diaz a “way worse beating” if they were to fight again
  • Cuz he was just kidding that last time
  • IDK
Luke “Show Me The Money” (or Joe will show his abs) Rockhold¬†
  • Luke had…
  • An opponent
  • A contract
  • BUT DESPITE having “AllOfDat”
  • Somebody didn’t wanna sign to fight at UFC 205…
  • The money is Bull-ISH says Rockhold
  • And unlike many other fights
  • Rockhold has other money making opportunities and he is okay waiting for the money to match his perceived worth
  • Luke was scheduled to fight Yoel Romero at UFC 205
  • It looks as though the UFC has moved on
  • Yoel will now fight Chris Weidman at UFC 205.
  • How soon before Luke turns to modeling as his full time gig?
  • Only time will tell….
UFC 205 is looking strong
  • Robbie Lawler vs Donald Cerrone – On paper this is an absolute fan favorite fight
  • We’ve seen a different type of fighter in Cowboy
  • Previously Cowboy has been a bit of a let down in the big fight and Robbie Lawler is no Joke
  • A win for Lawler and he’ll quickly be back on track to regain his title
  • A win for Cerrone and the skys the limit
  • Cerrone should be able transition this into much bigger pay days
  • Chris Weidman vs Yoel Romero
  • Winner should get a title fight
  • Rumors of Connor McGregor and GSP
  • As much as Conor rumors are just that, a rumor…
  • WHO wouldn’t pay for this fight?!!
  • Old and New school UFC fans will unite for this one
  • Could Jon Jones and Anthony Johnson Main Event this card?
  • All nonsense aside, We’d enjoy seeing Jon Jones try to stand with Rumble Johnson
  • Jones likes to out do his opponents by showing he is better at their game then they are
  • So could Jones handle Rumbles power
  • And does Jones have the power to drop Johnson?
  • Ronda Rousey is a no go
  • Why are talking about her again…
  • What about Cyborg versus…
  • Will we care who it is if its not Ronda at this point?
  • There we go again bring that girl up again…
  • Rumor has it Rashad Evans may be fighting Tim Kennedy …Ehhh
  • After Kennedy’s comments surrounding soldiers with PTSD…
  • We could care less than we did before
  • And BEFORE we thought he was retired… sooooo yeah…
  • Gooooooo Rashad!
