......I was so happy to see Duffee on the main card and looking forward to another 1st rd ko but now....
these guys need to stop training against bears or tigers or taking on the entire gym at once or whatever it is that causes every event to change at least 3 fights

I'd like to see Struve take on Buentello. That would be a big test to see if he could hang in the heavyweight division.

Yeah, tell me about it. I don't think I remember any other time region where so many injuries have occured.

Injuries are a strange thing, it seems like they usually happen in bulk

I'm disappointed that the fight is off, I was so happy to get to see Buentello in the UFC again, main card no less. I think they should give him Struve, and keep it main card, because I would rather see "The Headhunter" then most of the undercard.

Ya i would rather see Struve then Russow take on Paul.

I do hope though, that Belcher vs Goueveia makes the main card now, i think this fight will definitely take one of the three bonuses, which one, im not sure but capable of any of the three. Going to be great to watch.

Damn it Duffee, I want to see you fight. (He looks like a very bright Prospect)

Good for Duffee, he wasn't going to win anyway.


Buentello beats whoever they give him.

Apparently, the 10 losses on his resume is merely a typo...

I will bet anything that Duffee beats Buentello if they do fight.

I dont think he'll destroy Duffee, I think he'd win by UD. Just having the more crsip boxing.

Yeah and how many losses are in the last 6 years?

2 losses in that time to Overeem and Arlovski,

Sounds like a terrible match up for Buentello.

That's irrelevant, really. Your previous comment stated that regardless of who Buentello fights, he will win, indicating that there is no one that can beat him. That's why I posted what I did...

I'm not out to defend anyone when I write this, but being literal is kind of essential when you express yourself in text.

I never said anything about feeling important. I read a nuthugger'ish statement and decided to respond.

Nah, Buentello loses that fight...he might have more crisp boxing, but Duffee is a beast, much stronger, better wrestling and GNP.

I picked Duffee by 1st rd Ko
I pick Russow by dec, wrestling
I pick Struve

but I do recognize that Paul could lay out Struve but I would still go with Struve, I also recognize that Paul could land the better shots against Russo but I see no way paul does anything to Duffee, forget it, 2 minutes tops this fight goes, if it were to happen

I agree. Duffe looked great aginst Hague, but Beuntelo's boxing would definatly been more crisp and just as powerful. Pauls looks are very deceiving. He could have worn Duffee out a bit and probabalyKOhim. At least would have gone to a UD for the The Headhunter. Hopfully Joe Silva can find an opponent for Paul, i am really interested in seeing him fight again. He is a seasoned fighter and has tons of heart.

I think Paul beats any of them except Duffee....Struve got KOed by JDS and although I think the power of the two in question is near equal (JDS and Paul) I think that JDS has quicker and more accurate striking. I think it would take Paul a little longer but he'd get the same result. I think Duffee could hang with Paul, but it's kind of messed up of me as I have only seen the one fight and read a little bit on the guy....he's supposed to be a great grappler.
