I have to say, I am curious about the average age of fighters in the UFC as a whole versus the average age of fighters injured this year (or over the past few years) during the lead-up to a fight.
Seems like the injured tend to be older (at least older in the sport, if not years), but that's just from the top of my head.

I may have to do some research...

These guys and their injuries are hurting my interest in the sport at this point



I said the same thing. Then someone said they hated me for saying that.





The actual quote i said was "I really hate that for you."

I never said I hated you, just said I didn't relate to it bc the matchup that was ruined was the Aldo/Koch & it gave us Aldo/Edgar, a much better fight.

It doesn't matter now since both fights are gone. Just thought you'd like to know that no one hates you for having that opinion.



don't worry twenty bucks i still hate you buddy !

Who do you think they should get to replace him? Werdum? He isn't scheduled, I don't think. He isn't injured is he? Cormier still has to fulfill his last fight for Strikeforce/Showtime before he moves to the UFC.

The only guys I can think of right now would be Werdum, Arlovski or maybe even Cheick Kongo. Hunt is apparently going to be out for some time and those are the only match ups in my mind that could be competitive.

Just another regular day in the office
Not suprised. I doubt 154 main event stays intact

I would have to say werdum. He already fought in strikeforce. Or maybe kongo

I think Werdum makes the most since. He's not scheduled, both guys are ranked in the top 10, and IMO Werdum has been improving. Werdum is recognized as one of the most dangerous submission specialists in MMA. His striking is looking really good and this would be a serious test for both fighters.

If Werdum doesn't get the shot at Cormier maybe they've got bigger plans for him. Maybe TUF Brazil 2. Coaches JDS and Werdum.

Seeing Frank Mirrrrr get pummeled by a wrestler with a lot of power again would have been cool but I think Mirrrr was just a stepping stone for the match we really want to see. Jon Bones v Cormier.

Being completely honest... this is probably the best thing for Mir getting hurt. Everyone knows he was going to get knocked out again.

After beating Barnett a win over Mir wouldn't mean anything anyway.
