In a move surely to delight this site's readers, the UFC has re-signed UFC heavyweight Jake O'Brien (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and scheduled him to fight Cain Velasquez (3-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at the recently announced UFC Fight Night 14 -- an event that features a main event of Anderson Silva vs. James Irvin.

Yeah, thought he had signed with PFC or whatever org. it was but it looks like they resigned him.

Well, Cain via 1st round destruction.

EDIT: BTW, the Link doesn't work.

This is going to be a pretty good fight. I know alot of people don't like O'Brien because of the snoozefest with Herring. But, I've seen some of this guys other fights and they are pretty good. Tough test for the newcomer here. But the UFC has put alot of stock in Cain being a challenger at heavyweight. So I bet they are hoping he wins this one.

I don't see how Jake can Win this Fight, Cain's Wrestling is a lot Better, his Striking is way Better as Jake's is still rudimentary like how Josh Kpscheck's was on TUF. And Cain's Jui Jitsu is better. Jake is a tough guy though so I think it'll last until the 2nd then Cain gets a Ground and Pound T(KO).

My thought process exactly. Except I see it ending in the 1st, but wouldn't be surprised if it did make it to the 2nd round.

Yeah Cain is going to pretty much destroy him. I wouldn't be surprised if he took the fight to the ground first since it'd probably catch O'Brien off guard and most wrestlers aren't good off their back. Cain by 1st RD standing knockdown or takedown finishing with a GNP finish!!!

WAR CAIN, WAR FITCH, WAR KOS, WAR AKA!!!

What's in bold cracked me up. Yeah, that's pretty much what I hope to see happen and should happen.

It says right in the teaser they resigned him.

I knew plenty of forum members can't be bothered to click a link in a news story before they reply, but now we can't even read the teaser before running our mouths.

Neg props to you gartface.

Well, I know you didn't click the link either....because if you did you would notice that the link DOESN"T WORK right now.

First you diss on the premium members and now you are calling people out for not clicking on links and you didn't click this one. You're Mr. Almighty aren't you....

I was ragging on him for not reading the teaser at the start of the thread. The link working doesn't mean jack.

Also I never dissed any premium members. I said I felt that premium members can get away with stuff that would get a non-premium member banned etc.

I stated an opinion and you got butt hurt.
