  2. Fedor vs. Randy (POLL, Jul 20), affliction spoiler inside
    Ok so everyone that said "Fedor hasn't fought anybody ...", "Elbows would do the job...." , "Any UFC HW could beat him ....." after watching (or reading) the Affliction results from last night where...
  3. UFC Quick Quote: Dana White ‘impressed’ with Fedor Emelianenko’s win over Tim Sylvia
    “It does (change my opinion). Tim Sylvia was a real opponent. [But my opinion that Anderson Silva is still the world’s best fighter has not changed] Not at all. Do you even need to ask me after...
  4. Don Johnson, but not Michael Madsen?!
    Did anyone else notice at the affliction show how they announced Don Johnson's name as a celebrity in the audience, but not Michael Madsen? I dunno why but that just pissed me off. Then, after the...
  5. 10 Reflections on July 19th
    1. July 19th is the reason they make remote controls with a prev. channel/recall button. 2. Lil Nog looked pretty darn good against DeWees. I'd love to see a fight between him and Babalu. 3. Anderson...
  6. Affliction vs UFC July 19th who was better ???
    Now that you have watched both events who had the better show??? Which main event KO was more painful to watch??? Was it big Timmy's nose or the Sandmans cheak??
  7. Affliction Review
    I want to thank Affliction for putting on the best non-ufc card ever(in the us). The under card was totally sick and was fought well. Babalu came back in style. Pedro RIzzo needs to make some serious...
  8. **The Official "I put Fedor back at #1" Thread**
    i was one of the MANY people who had not put Fedor at #1 HW strictly bc he had not fought anyone. i dont know which threads but i specifically remember me & a few others saying they would change...
  9. Who else didn't like Affliction last night?
    I thought the fights were good and stuff. but the music in between everything and it took forever for them to fight. Im glad i didnt order it and got it for free cause when im watching mma i want to...

  15. Can anyone beat Fedor?
    I had forgotten why Fedor is the baddest man on the planet. Over the last three years all I have been watching is old pride shows on FSN or the Web. To see his brand of destruction happening live is...

  16. He Speaks English!?!
    Admittedly, that's the first thing I thought at the end of Anderson Silva's post-fight interview last night. Quite surprised but I thought it was really cool at the same time.
  17. Paulo Filho vs Anderson Silva
    IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!!! I wish people would stop talking about this fight. For one, they are friends and said they wont fight. Second, it wouldnt even be close. Anderson would absolutely murder...

  21. Kimbo v. Carwin
    Idk if this was already made but just to have a little escape from the events we saw this week, who out of these non top 10 heavyweights, do you think would win. I think Carwin is a rising star and...
  22. Cain vs. Cro Cop
    I am doing this poll cause I am curious to think if Cain is as good as I think he is. He reminds me of Randy Coutoure. Same size and style. Cro Cop is no longer viewed in the top 10 for heavies in...

    just curious what the majority would say.... i say top 10
  25. DREAM needs to start a HW tourney soon.
    Fedor and Barnett can go almost anywhere they want with their contracts. DREAM could get Kharitonov and maybe (if the Hepatitis rumour is false) Aleksander. Also they could get Arlovski and Overeem...
  26. Joachim Hansen vs Eddie Alvarez 2... Who takes it??
    So after last night (more so this morning), Eddie challenged the winner of the GP to fight him for the title, and Hansen said he would like to defend the Title against Alvarez, as for now it seems to...
  27. Lightweight Division Shakeup
    After Dream 5 the lightweight rankings were thrown for a loop. after beating hansen and kawajiri, alvarez needs to be in the mix, and so does hansen for that matter. My top 10 1. BJ 2. Gomi 3....

    3 fight cards later, who do you think had the more impressive weekend? Silva moving up to 205, Fedor destroying Sylvia in 36 seconds, Hellboy winning the LW Grand Prix? My pick is is Hellboy winning...
  31. Sylvia SEVERELY over paid.
    I hate Tim Sylvia, that might not come as a shock to most people. But seriously, where else in the world can a man walk into work, work for 38 seconds, leave, and get paid $800,000? This is...

    It goes like this. Pick any 2 fighters, and see if you can connect them together by using fights they've been in. Some are easy, some are longer. So throw up some random names, and see if the next...

  40. Affliction payout shows dana's lies
    One of Dana's main reasons for not signing Fedor was something along the lines of he wants more money than anyone's ever been paid to fight in the UFC. Where was that crack legal team for Fedor...

  41. Dana's BS about Fedor....
    With Fedor only making $300k for his affliction fight, it gets rid of the "he took the money" argument in signing with M1. Im pretty sure Cro Cop was earning more than this in the UFC. It just makes...

    Fedor is as awsom of a fighter as it gets, it took him 36 seconds to dismantle Sylvia, with no sweat, he could have had 2 more fights the same night. On the other hand, it took Randy 5 - 5 minute...
