Werdum isn't ranked high enough for a shot at the WAMMA title. Apparently the WAMMA belt is so highly ranked that, even if you lose to Fedor it's assumed you lost to a god, so you earn a shot at the Strikeforce title, at least that's my understanding.

I would say that's a fair assessment.

It would be a great night if Le & Fedor both lost.

I think one obviously will and one obviously won't. Obviously you should know which ones.

I think Cung Le will retire if he gets knocked out again. There's a decent chance that it goes identical to the first match.

Wamma has two champs Fedor and Aoki well thats what their website says was Gilbert not worthy of a shot?

I hope not his stand up is exciting to watch. He was putting it on Smith in the first fight I think he will take this one.

I think the better questions are does anyone still even recognize WAMMA and does anyone still even care about them? Admittedly I don't.

LOL I never did

At first I did but I gave up on them last year. The belts have been defended a combined total of, if my count's correct, once (Fedor).

First fight over. Stack takes a SD over Burnsed.

The WAMMA belt is about as important as winning the Dubai Open in Tennis.

I would really like to see Cung Le's scissor kick in an MMA match. I used to love seeing that in his San Shou days.

I think the problem is that people think WAMMA is such a joke that even the people who run WAMMA don't care about WAMMA anymore and forgot to keep track of their own belt holders.

I wonder what the chances are that all the underdogs win tonight, all these fights odds wise are one sided.

If you need a stream PM me, found a good one.

hahaha... I love how their poll is basically "How long will it take Fedor to win?" Because they knew if they put a poll up to pick the winner it would just be like 95% in Fedor's favor LOL.

or like 99% to 1%

Wow, what a weird maneuver by Thompson.

I'd give Thompson the first round, 10-9, for the sub attempts.

2nd round was even closer than the 1st. I could see it being scored for either guy.

I'm sick of hearing how knowledable the crowd is no crap one man had his arm wraped around the others throat.

Shamrock is killing me with his announcing. Am I the only one?

Definately good fight...I had it picked UD for Thompson, but nice surprise finish...I thought ring rust was going to be about a 30 second more disadvantage for Josh. Shmrock's been annoying for a long time!

Actually, I heard the crowd go nuts when Thompson cinched the body triangle, which is pretty good for an mma crowd.

lol one day I want to go through all of Frank Shamrock's commentaries and compile a list of the hilarious things he says.

Mauro: I have it 1-1 right now.

Frank: nahhhh... I think it's 1-1.

LOL.

edit

My favourite line ever was Baroni vs Riggs when asked about Baroni's stamina said:

"Well Baroni has a great stamina and a great heart-on" (hard-on)

I agree the crowd seems cool tonight but it's also due to the fan favorite performing a good move, but at least they recognized it as a good move!

Mmmm... Meisha Tate...

I don't understand how he keeps finding work as a commentator.
