Another one, you are a busy little bee-as the emperor said in gladiator( great movie). Props to Ace for not fighting a can though.

IMO I think it's odd he hasn't watched his fight against SIlva yet. Though he went in with the wrong game plan and because of this lost the fight, why wouldn't you at least watch the fight? Good post.

Another good interview... Rich seems like such a down to earth guy that it's hard for me not to pull for him... I will agree with hippysmacker, props to Rich for not taking as 'easy' fight, and I hope all goes well for him...

On a side note, it's nice to see MMA talked about on a predominantley Boxing website.

I hope Rich is on a return like no other. Like a Matt Hughes return. Gets the crap beat out of him once, then destroyes everyone in his path!

is it only me that thinks mcdonald is a can?..
he was gettin dominated by leben.. and if leben stuck his head through my armpits i'd squeeze the heck out of his head..

his stand up lacks a great deal
his punches have no power
and his groundgame doesnt impress me at all

I think the guy has a very solid set of ground skills, and after watching the Leben fight it seems that he can take a punch. His main problem is that he is a direct product of the UFC hype machine, but I wouldn't go as far as to call him a can.

He beat 2 recognizable fighters, not 'top-ranked' or 'A-level' fighters. He has won his only two UFC fights, but against popular competition not necesarily high quality comp.

Rich will be his first real test and I don't think it will fair well for J-Mac
