Wow.

This has been a dream matchup of mine for a while. Its about frikken time.

Do you think Vovchanchyn will drop to 205?

I hope Silva gets his medical suspension lifted.

Isnt Pride 34 going to be in Japan anyways? Can't they ignore the suspension? Or would there be reprecussions later if Wand tried to fight in Nevada?
Vovchanchyn by awesomeness. IMO one of the sports greatest fighters.

Isn't he (medically) suspended for 3 months? And doesn't what the Nevada State Athletic Commission say go for everywhere worldwide?

Have there been any other sources other than Chute Box? I'd kind of like to see it confirmed elsewhere before getting my hopes up too high. If this fight does go down, I will definitely be ordering the PPV this weekend. WAR Igor!
And, no, the NSAC cannot control what goes in other countries. If Pride chooses to do so, they can have Wandy fight this weekend, even under a suspension. That's not to say that there won't be any repercussions when if/when Wandy tries to fight here in the States.

If it is true I am very excited. Ice Cold couldn't be beat for a long time. I know he has lost s step and a little power, it was very sad to see him lose to Overeem.

If Silva is not careful he is going to lose another and his noggin will be a lot worse than the condition Hendo left it in.

I don't think so. Vitor was suspended for drug use, but he is fighting over in Europe before his suspension is over.

A medical suspension might be different than other suspensions, but I am pretty sure that what the NSAC says only holds for venues that are sanctioned under them.
