I called it after ufc 76 despite them saying he had to win to get it!
Makes alot of sense and has - in a funny sort of way - got the importance back into the fight, it will be a big fight cos 3 losses in a row will somewhat ruin 1 fighters career, if it isnt for a unification between them both as ufc + pride champions then this is the next best thing IMHO
same here.. i was almost tempted to look up some past articles to quote myself. There was no way they couldnt let this fight happen. Both fighters are getting old, both are legends, both comming off two losses, winner gets a huge win, loser rethinks his career. Not only is it sooooo easy to promote, this will probably be the last guaranteed chance that these fighters meet in the octagon without being on a rascal.
With that said, nog/kongo wont happen until january and sherk has less than a month until his appeal is rejected. I'm pretty sure we're gonna see stevenson/penn at 79.
