  1. TICKETS below face value
    I don't know if the mods will let me do this but.... I've got extra tickets to UFC 90 that I'm trying to get rid of.... I'm considering all offers at this time.

  3. We Need An "Official Stankie Fan Club"!
    Surely I'm not the only one here who's become a big fan of "Stankie". WAR STANKIE! Seriously, he's becoming maybe the best thing about this season of TUF 8. What's not to like about the guy?
  4. WHAT IF FEDOR LOSES?
    If Fedor loses to Arlovski (which probably won't happen) where would that put him?
  5. Gono's UFC 89 entrance
    Win or lose, Gono is still one of my favorites and most charismatic fighters out there...having said that, he is his awesome entrance at UFC 89 And yes, Gono did a twirl. He is a badass
  6. A way to check most career wins?
    I was wondering if their could be a way to check the all time leaders in wins. Ever since the playground has started. If not i think we should have a list with most career wins.

  11. Where does Silva go after Saturday? (ESPN)
    He really doesn't have anyone left to fight. In his last fight, Anderson Silva, left, dismantled light heavyweight James Irvin in under a round. Dan Henderson and Rich Franklin represented the two...
  12. PATRICK COTE?
    How can Patrick Cote beat Anderson Silva. This is almost an impossible task, I don't think there is anybody in the middleweight division that could even test Silva. Patrick Cote has a good chin but...

    Looks like Chicago is the place to be this Saturday! check this out
  14. Can Jon Fitch Punch His Way Out Of A Coffin?

  19. Does anyone think Arlovski vs Sylvia would have renewed interest in Affliction?
    Just something I was thinking about. Sylvia seems to have hit a downslide and Arlovski is on a comeback roll. You guys think the fight could be big if they fought after Arlovski losses to Fedor?

  40. Could AA make Lightheavy?
    If AA loses to Fedor, could it be a good option to move to Light Heavy if he can make weight? He's not the heaviest of Heavys, and he looks smaller now than he ever used to. He's a tall guy with a...
  41. Fedor's weakness
    I keep hearing people say everyone has one, and this and that and Fedor's not so great. I honestly cannot find one. The only thing I can think of is that he cuts, but thats not really a weakness that...
