  1. Jason Reinhardt
    I just watched the Lauzon/Reinhardt fight and he looks really small. It looked like Lauzon was fighting a munchkin. Is it just me that thinks he's small, or is Joe just tall for 155?
  2. Best Referee Sayings
    All of the refs have a kind of catch phrase. I was wondering what you guys thought was the best/funniest. Obviously Big John's will be a lot of people's favourites and it's mine too but I think that...
  3. will alekzander fade into oblivion or come back stronger

  7. Another idiot sportswriter...
    The way I'm hearing it, there was more dry humping at UFC 78 than there was back at the wood-paneled, shag-carpeted den in your parents' house. - Mark Kriegel, Fox Sports.com
  8. Okay I really had to agree
    I saw the fight and then I saw someone post the same thoughts I had on Sherdog.Did anyone else think Joe Rogan was biased during the Mccroy/Gono fight?
  9. Fitch vs Gono
    i know this isn't definately confirmed but should this happen, i think fitch should get someone like karo, koscheck or gsp and gono should be a bit further down against like burkman
  10. Anyone go to 78 weigh ins?
    I just read on sherdog that Joe Silva talked for a while to the fans about some UFC fighters. And one of the things he mentioned was that Anderson hates Wanderlei and said that if he beats Chuck,...
