- Rules you hate in combat sports.
There are certain pet peeve rules I have in certain sports. Boxing- in boxing it is illegal to hold your arm out. How lame is that? They say it's unfair. Trust me, and this is coming from a 155er...

Smith has been in some wars. Diaz, Radach, Lawler, Sell. he should get a mandatory cat scan! But what a scrapper!
- Is it time for Diaz vs Lawler II?
I would love to see this fight in the next year. I think Diaz wins again.

Randleman looked tired after the first round. He is a much better wrestler than Mike Whitehead but yet he didn't stuff or stop any takedowns and got mounted twice. How much does he have left?
- Strikeforces vacant 170 lb. title. Who should fight for it?
Riggs just won so he should be considered, but who else is there? Sheilds wants Cung Le at 185.

- Jens or Grispi?
Im picking Jens to win, mostly because im a Jens fan and dont want to see him get destroyed again. This is similar to the liddell situation (the downfall of a legend). Jens has only 4 wins in his...

- Is Arlovski giving up?
One can only imagine how hard it is to train your butt off hours a day and know in the back of your mind you probley are wasting your time. Arlovski can be the most skilled fighter on earth and he...
- I hope this isnt being overlooked re Fabers broken hand
I hope he is still able to throw up the devil horns. Take that away from him, what else does he have? How else are people going to know how radical he is? I took my breath away the first time I saw...

Check out these x-rays of Faber's hands. I have broke both hands like this and let me tell you your hands become worthless. Should be a while before we see Faber again.

After seeing Brett Rogers' demolition of Andrei Arlovski, I started to think that Arlovski may be an(other) example of a fighter who hasn't properly embraced the idea that this is mixed martial arts,...
- Kenny Kenflo Florian
Last night at WEC, I think he did a pretty good job commentating the fights that were going on last night. What do you guys think of him, yay or nay.
- Andrei Arlovski
A Bit of a rant but here ya go. I know I'm going to get hated for this but when was AA ever an ELITE fighter? He has been KO'd 5 times, and with 1 win of 3 vs Tim. He has had his share of luck...

So I felt Nick would win but never thought he would dominate like that props to Diaz he keeps looking better but now that shields beat Robbie it kind of puts a kink in the pipe as I dont think him...
- Nick Diaz
They need to bring Nick back into the UFC... he's been a fav fighter of mine for awhile but recently his boxing / standup has been on another level. He's been fighting at 180 and doing real well now...
- Another WEC 41 Injury
I don't have too many details yet beyond a snip from 411 about it, but Manny Gamburyan also broke a hand last night. No word on how long he's out.

- Question about Nick Diaz???
I know a lot of you won't agree, but I think Diaz has done enough (for me at least) to be on some sort of top ten ranking... I'm not comfortable with ranking him in the #4#, but don't know where the...
- What would be the biggest match a matchmaker could make outside the UFC?

- Is anyone else gonna be pissed if Maia doesn't get the next shot at Silva?
The way I see it is he's earned it. Bisping wouldn't have earned it short of spectacularly finishing Hendo. Hendo is thee most interesting rematch but he has to finish Bisping at least IMO. But who...
- Thoughts on Arlovski?
After having some time to digest AA's last loss, it got me thinking is Arlovski overrated? I look back at his record and it really is not that impressive. He beat Sylvia once, only to lose back to...
