shut up fucking douche.

rashad evans was so disappointing. he wasnt on game at all that night,


Na du, rashad was on his game, it's just that his game can't touch machida's game. Machida gets better with every fight.

I see Rampage getting beaten as well. He's slower than rashad, and rashad couldn't touch machida. And his takedowns aren't as fast or as good as tito, and tito couldn't touch him. And his aggression is just gonna get him clipped like Thiago Silva. I think Rampage has a tougher chin, so it'll prolly get to either the 3rd or 4th round until Machida gets the ref stoppage.

At the present time I don't see anyone messing with Machida. Anything anyone can do, he's already faced better.

^ I would have to disagree... Rampage is better than Rashad and thiago! There is one thing about machida, he doesnt like to get hit.. Rampage also doesnt mind getting hit.. So he will attack machida unlike Rashad who was trying to play the counter punch game with another counter offense. Rampage will find a way to hit Machida and hard, then we will see how good machida can take a punch. Dont get me wrong though, its going to be very tough to get these punches on Machida but I think rampage can do it... What do i see happening is Machida backing up alot and running away, which might fustrate rampage like it did tito which will owrk to Machidas advantage. Should be a great fight and interesting to see the outcome!

rampage is over rated imo. He's a decision fighter if you don't stand and bang with him (or if you're an undersized japanese fighter). If a faster fighter isn't able to touch machida, rampage will not be able to touch him. If a stronger wrestler can't take him down, rampage can't either. I just don't see it happening. And rampage's aggression is just gonna work against him. I'm sure he doesn't mind getting hit..and that's why he's gonna get tko'd. Machida doesn't have KO power...but take enough punches and you're done. That's what I see happening to rampage...he's just gonna keep getting touched until eventually he gets stunned, machida rushes and gets the ref stoppage.

And about machida not liking to get hit...well, I'm not so sure that it's that he doesn't like to get hit as much as it is just that he DOESN'T get hit. I mean, I'd rather fight like machida than rampage. If I can avoid getting hit, I will; even if I have a chin made of granite. Why would I even risk getting tapped on the button? Doesn't matter if your head is made of bricks...EVERYBODY has a button...Even Fujita's gotten tapped on the button. Fedor's been tapped on the button. Why risk it?

I think Rampage is gonna put too much stock in his chin and try to walk through machida's punches. That will be his downfall.

I see machida walking away with the fight...even if it's a decision...He's just a smarter fighter.

^ wow i cant believe u just said Rampage is overrated and u said he is a decision fighter! Machida is overrated and a most of his wins are from Decision right now... yeah he is 15-0 but who has he fought that is actually is good fighter.. rich Franklin back in the day and Bj penn back in the day before they were actually good.. Only good fighter as of right now is Evans... Look at the list of Rampage and how they were won! That a bad statement for u saying that! But i will agree that if Machida backs away everytime rampage commits, he will do what tito did and get really fustrated and make a mistake.. But if he gets on Machida and starts hitting him, we will see what happens... I know Machida is a good fighter now but still has to beat some of the top contenders...

On another note: Why is anderson fighting forrest? I think Shogun should get his rematch, so he can smash on Forrest and then be at the top for a title shot... IMO

Rampage may be more exciting than Machida, but I think he's sloppy. And if a guy doesn't stand and trade with him, he's boring. Let's go down the list

Jardine: Sloppy fight...decision...why? Cuz Jardine is elusive and isn't gonna stand and trade shots.

Wanderlei: Traded shots...got caught. Sorry, I'm not impressed.

Forrest: Lost because Forrest wouldn't stand and trade. Forrest was sticking and moving and rampage got beat.

Hendo: He just used his size to clinch bully to a boring decision. Not impressed.

Liddel: Stands and trades and gets KO'd. Impressive, but he only got it cuz they were exchanging.

Marvin Eastman: Stands trades, gets KO'd...but then again, he has a glass jaw, so again, no accomplishment there either. :\

Matt Lindland: I'm not impressed with bullying around a smaller fighter. Especially when you can't finish them.

Dong sik yoon: Who? A guy who has more losses than wins? And he could only get a decision? LOL.

Yokoi: Another hack who couldn't buy a win in pride. That's like when Vanderlei would stomp jap no names...it's meaningless.

Shogun: Got dominated cuz he wanted to stand and trade..

Ninja: Boring decision

Wand: KO'd cuz he wanted to stand and trade.

Arona: was dominating rampage until the slam...skill? No, just strength.

Minowa: again, bullying the smaller guy.

Wand: KO'd...he couldn't do much on the ground..gets stood up..gets taken out.

Liddel: This one I was impressed by..he def dominated Chuck with great GnP.

Bustamante: another smaller fighter that he barely sqeezed out a decision against.

The rest of his fights from before 2003 are against nobodies and bear no significance.

But from what I see, he fought some "names" but the only ones that are noteworthy are his recent wins over chuck and wand, his previous win over liddell, and his slam of Arona. Other than that, boring decisions or he was just bullying the smaller fighter. And we see that he doesn't dominate on the feet. IDK man, without the big slams, rampage is boring to me...he doesn't excel at any one thing...he's just like, big strong and mean...I mean, his boxing has cleaned up a lot, but unless you stand and trade with him, he's not doing much to you...

Machida may not have fought any names...but names don't make fights...styles do. And I don't see rampage's style working against machida's. Rampage doesn't even train muay thai...he trains straight boxing...that range isn't gonna be effective against machida's range. Rampage's clinch won't work because he won't be able to grab machida. I just don't see anything that rampage can do against machida except land a punch if machida gets cocky and careless. That's probably gonna be rampage's strategy. Play possum and get machida to rush him so he can try to counter him. That's the ONLY thing I can see happening.

Machida may be considered boring, but his style wins. Rampage has no answer for it.

Stylistically Rampage will have a hard time with Machida, but there's always a puncher's chance and Jackson is very well conditioned and can edure some punishments.

I think it'll be another Brazillian who's going to dethrone Machida... SHOGUN RUA!!!! maybe Luiz Cane (Southpaw Muay Thai striker)

*btw Gegard Mousasi > Lyoto Machida

Rumor flowing around the web saying that it's going to be SHOGUN Rua after all who's going to have 1st crack at Champ MACHIDA. WAR SHOGUN!!!

Rampage vs Rashad Evans as coaches for TUF 10! It'll feature heavyweight contenders... According to Quinton, he has an unfinished business with Evans who left him a sourface after his victory over Sugar's teammate Keith Jardine on UFC 96.

MMA veteran Frank "Twinkle Toes" Trigg has signed a contract for 4 fights with UFC! His famous battles between Matt Hughes for UFC welterweight title.

* Apparently German boxer commentator thinks MMA is for Nazis... regarding UFC 99 in Germany... Germany has already passed a law that wont allow minors to watch the fight.

It's kind of ironic if u ask me, Boxing is absolutely huge in Germany so wtf is the problem? France and Belgium loves kickboxing then why no love for MMA? Random thought, Dutch are the best fighters in Europe!

^ I think the reason is they think Shogun would have the better advantage over machida then Rampage... So if Shogun wins then it will be a rematch everyone wants to see between rampage and shogun! Also the UFC needs Drama in TUF 10 so why not bring in 2 fighters that have something against each other! Like tito and shamrock or hughes and serra! It should be rampage vs. Machida no matter what he was in line, had to pll out because of a jaw injury..But would love to see Shogun smash Machida

If Shogun is back to his old self then he will give Machida problems, that's going to be a hell of a fight. How would he get a title shot so soon though? Granted he was one of my favorite fighters back in his Pride days, so I will be pulling for him, but he's won two fights since his loss to Griffin back in 07, and both were against opponents who are past their prime. It was going to be Rashad and Rampage, Rashad lost, so it should be Rampage/Machida and Rua/Evans. My opinion of course. But I can see the the advantage of an Evans/Rampage coached TUF, from a fan's stand point and from the UFC's.

^Its official Shogun and machida meet in October! I cant wait! Also the reason why he is getting the title shot is because he was next in line after Rampage. Rampage declined the title shot because he wants to fight rashad because of what happened after the jardine fight. Also Shogun is coming off 2 wins and a knockout over Liddell and shogun look liked he was getting back to his old self again! He deserves it!

Based on those two wins alone I don't think he deserves a title shot yet, but if Rampage declined a title shot(and who the fuck does that), then I guess Rua would be the next viable option. I would have just rather seen him fight at least one more good fight against someone that's not heading out the door. But it should be a great match regardless.

^ Rampage already declined, its official... Dumb thing to do but he wants to fight Rashad cause there is bad intension between the 2! But i can agree with Shogun has come off 2 wins over 2 dudes who are past there times BUT he says he is back to his old self and look like he is in his training! So why not give one of the best LHW in mma a title shot, most likely he is going to win!

Strikeforce card this saturday. s

Robbie Lawler (16-4) vs. Jake Shields (22-4-1) 185Lbs

Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski (15-6) vs. Brett “The Grim” Rogers (9-0)

Nick “Bad Boy” Diaz (19-7) vs. Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith (16-5)

Phil “New York Bad Ass” Baroni (13-10) vs. Joe “Diesel” Riggs (29-10)

Kevin “Monster” Randleman (17-12) vs. Mike Whitehead (23-7)


Pretty easy pick... except for Middleweight Title match only because their styles are different. Lawler is more of intense brawler and Jake is more of submission artist, but i picked Robbie cuz im pretty positive that his wrestling is way better than Jake.

As much as i want Kevin to win the fight, im not sure he has evolved to complete MMA fighter. For Mike Whitehead, i have watched some videos of him training hard at the WANDERLEI's Gym.

im very intrigue to see Andrei back in the cage. i hope he doesnt get taken down so easily n KO Brett (oh did u guys know Alistar was supposed to be fighting against Brett then him and his brother got into a fight with security guards in the club in HOLLAND. Apparently his hands were messed up cuz of that incident)

*i love Mousasi and it's going to be his 1st fight in US soil, i think he could beat Lyto if he wants to.
im thinking of going to casino and win some $ for the ticket LOL!

Shit i also forgot the next night is WEC 41: Fabor vs, Brown 2

MAIN CARD
Champ Mike Brown vs. Urijah Faber (for WEC featherweight title)
Jose Aldo vs. Cub Swanson
Donald Cerrone vs. James Krause
Josh Grispi vs. Jens Pulver

I think Faber is going to get his belt back! I like Mike Brown but i think Faber, is going to train his ass off for this and come the winner! I hope Jose Aldo smashe son Cub Swanson, i cant stand Swanson, he thinks he is the toughest dude in the world.. Cerrone is one of my favorite lightweights, he should have the title right now but got ripped! I think it should just be a rematch but he will get his shot next time. Then Pulver is going for one more run at the 145, hoping he gets back on top for another title shot...

Then the week after that we have UFC 99

MAIN CARD
Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva
check Kongo vs. Cain Velasquez
Ben Saunders vs. Mike Swick
Marcus Davis vs. Dan Hardy
Spencer Fisher vs. Caol Uno

I think Wand is going to pull this one off, even with Franklin training with Anderson Silva. Check Kongo is making his run for a title shot. Ben Saunders, watch out WW, he has one of the best clinches, knees and kicks.. Also has very good BJJ, i think he is going to take out Swick!

Then hahaha The Ultimate fighter finale the week after but will talk about when we see who the finalists are going to be...

Kevin “Monster” Randleman (17-12) vs. Mike Whitehead (23-7)



My picks in bold. Lawler knows how to stop the takedown and keep it on the feet where he'll win. Arlovski will out box his opponent. Scott Smith will keep it on the feet, where Nick thinks he can hang, and he'll KO Nick. Baroni is a sloppy dinosaur...90% strength. Diesel will get the KO standing. Kevin Randleman will win a boring decision via ground and "pound". I don't think whitehead can stop his takedowns.

Then hahaha The Ultimate fighter finale the week after but will talk about when we see who the finalists are going to be...


My picks in bold.

I think that Wand's time is up unless he changes his punching style. He is WAAAAy too wide open and I'm 99% sure that A Silva is training Rich to throw straights, not hooks. While a hood may have more power, a straight gets to the target faster. I see Rich landing a straight that stuns Wand, and then following up for the TKO. However, if Wand does his oldschool bulldoze, the pressure might overwhelm Wand. But I don't see that happening. Rich by TKO.

Cheik Kongo is over rated. He's just a big dude who's mediocre at kickboxing and uses his size to bully dudes...But put him against a decent wrestler and he has nothing. He has NO ground game. I see cain getting a decision via ground control.

Mike Swick...IDK, I like the kid..a lot of natural ability...I'm hoping he explodes and gets one of his fast handed KO's.

Dan Hardy trains with freddy roach from what I heard. Which means his hands will be better than Davis's. I see hardy taking it.

And Spencer fisher is just too gritty for Caol to handle. Spence by decision.

^ Dana said he would never sign Kimbo and the only way he would let him fight in the UFC is if he won his way into the UFC. So Kimbo signed up for TUF 10 and Dana allowed it.. But UFC will give him know where near as much money a fight as elite did for fights! I think its a good idea, Dana is right Kimbo isnt impressive, so make him earn his was into the UFC... Now we have to wait an see how he does on the show.

Man, I really like griffin..he's a funny laid back dude. I think I might actually cop that book if I remember.

I'm like 99% sure kimbo is gonna eliminate early. To a submission guy.


as for my picks

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett (MAIN EVENT) Barnett will dominate early with his grappling...then get cocky in the second round and try to stand with Fedor. That's when Fedor gets the KO.

Tim Sylvia vs. Paul Buentello I'm hoping PB takes him out.

Renato Sobral vs. Gegard Mousasi=(1st DREAM Middleweight Champ. Moving upto 205 lbs) No brainer....seriously.

Vitor Belfort vs. Jorge Santiago I think old vitor is back..a trained vitor is a scary vitor

Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon lauzon will use his reach and ground game to his advantage
