From Josh Barnett to Big Timmah huh. Well, will be good to get Cormier's last fight off his contract with a W.

DC needs to be in the ufc like yesterday. unless he pulls a randy couture or hendo, his age puts him towards the end of his career. i want to see him suplex some top ufc fighters before he gets to the end of his career. i know that the HW's are jusrt about dont in SF but i still feel like he should have been in the ufc already. i think timmy has earned himself a beatdown.

What is the point of this?

If DC is wanting to fight for the title, this +1 fight shouldn't be in SF, he should be measuring up with the UFC HW guys.

Put Barney vs Timmay

Does this mean Timmay can't come to the UFC now? Is he on the list now?

It might sound crazy, but right now I like the match up. I've never been a Sylvia fan (NEVER) but it gives him a shot that he has been crying for. However, I mostly like the set up, because it gives Cormier a win over another previous UFC champ which they can market when they bring him over. I know, I know it is an old, diaper wearing, crying on his knees to Dana, Big Timdumb, but still a previous UFC HW champ. When he actually tried he had some good scraps.

Am I bordering on fighter bashing??? Does it make it all better with my last sentence?

If Sylvia comes in, in shape, Sylvia can possibly use his size to force Cormier into his game. I wouldn't bet against Cormier, but the lack of motivation for this fight is a little odd imo.

Sylvia is always dangerous. He's got 20 ko/tko wins that's an impressive number regardless who he's been fighting. I mean I'm with everyone else on the illegitimate match-up, but Cormier is definitely going to have to be motivated and stay focused which I'm sure he'll do.

I heard Big Tim was hanging out with Rampage......this means two things.

1) He will NOT make weight (also, a horrible driver)
2) Big fan of Mt. Dew

Those two do NOT add up to beating yet alone surviving one minute against Daniel


Way to go Strikeforce

I'm not sure all of our post creation rules but Ariel tweeted that Dana says this is false.

Maybe, but I'm not seeing any advantage to denying this one if it turns out to be true. At least the Barao fight turned out to be exciting.
