Sakara has to be one of the guys that if they dont win they are getting cut. He is 3-4 with 1 NC in the UFC. And in his last 3 fights he has been TKOed twice.

Yeah but he just moved into a much weaker division, where he fought a guy he shouldnt have been fighting. If he loses this one, id still give him one more shot because they need MW's bad. Same for Yundt.

I respectfully disagree completely, how do you possibly keep a guy like Sakara who is a striker with a glass jaw, and cut a guy who actually has a shot in the division like Lutter... i really never understood that one. At any rate, i hope Sakara wins because if he doesn't i really can't see how he isn't on the chopping block.

Well put my friend. I've always been a fan of Lutter. He gassed in both fights just trying to work subs, and I can respect that more than someone holding someone down for 15 minutes.

This is make or break for Sakara though, expect him to be cut soon.

Damnit, I just wish Sakara had a better chin, he'd probably of won the fight against McFed and Leben if he had one.
I am glad they are giving Yundt another chance, didnt he step in like 3 days notice to take on Almeida?

Gassing after 30 seconds is no achievement.....

really man, 30 seconds are you kidding me, i'd like to see you last half of what you claim lutter lasts when you're up against a guy like Rich or Anderson...

Well for the record, i wouldnt have cut lutter either but i know what you mean. It makes no sense to keep Sakara if you cut Lutter.

Thats a silly thing to say. MMAcca is not a professional fighter in the UFC. Against Rich or Anderson he would most likely be unconcious before he had time to gas
