Stay tuned kids (rubs hands together in homage to Mr. Burns)

Though, most likely the alleged "COWARD" will most likely back out and go into the witness protection program along side Henry Hill.


Tell us now damnit!

any shot of it being Rashad?



I'm thinking it has to be someone coming down from 205, so yeah I think it's a good chance it's Rashad. Purely speculation on my part though.

See him saying he doesn't care enough about the guy to cut TO 185 makes me think it's a 185er. If it was a 205er, why would he even mention cutting to 185 instead of saying something along the lines of 'he should meet me at grudge weight, as I don't respect him enough to fight at his weight'?
I don't think it's Rashad just because I've never heard anyone call him a coward and to do so to your cohost would be a bit strange imo. Idk just thinking out loud and using the only psychology I've ever learned (it's from Psych )

It's Wand, i'm telling you it's Wand.


Rousey and Chael should have gotten together, purely because their kid's would have some of the best genetics.

Wanderlei is the only person that makes sense to me. The fact that he says he doesn't care enough to move down to 185 has to mean it's a MW, so Rashad seems unlikely, even though he's talked about moving down.

I disagree with you guys. Him naming the grudge weight at 200 makes it seem pretty obvious to me that its a LHW.

Oh how great it would be if it is Wandy, and comes out to have the fight of his UFC career, destroying Sonnen with some brutal knees, breaking his nose and knocking a few teeth out in the process.

Evans and Sonnen appear to get along quite well seated next to each other at the commentator's booth. That being said, calling it a grudge weight wouldn't make much sense. Whoever it is, I'm sure Rousey will be calling them out soon enough as well.



My thoughts as well. Also, quite a while back Chael had mentioned that based on record, credentials, etc. that Evans could be thought of as one of the very best LHWs. I can't remember what the discussion was around, but I get the same feeling that they are far from any 'grudge'.

That's quite a limb in Forrest as far as I'm concerned. Forrest cuts a ton of weight just to get to 205. And Chael mentioned not caring enough to cut clear to 185, so I don't see that referring to Forrest or really anyone else at 205 that doesn't seem like they might be able to move down easily.

*Edit: I guess the 185 thing could just mean he doesn't want to cut all the way down like he usually does.

Henry Hill is actually dead now, just saying haha.

But to me, it sounds like it's gotta be W. Silva. He mentions a grudge weight which means it's someone he's beefed with before, (with Chael this obviously isn't a short list), and not wanting to cut to 185 means it's a middleweight. Also it's recently been revealed that Wanderlei is coming back, with details being ironed out for his next fight.

Its def. a MW not a LHW. Thats why he only cares to cut to 200, seems some of you are misinterpreting that.

I hope its not Wand (it will be), I hate for his last fight to be lost both on his back and on points. Then again, a decision loss to Chael with limited damage leaves the door open for a few more fights.
