cut jorge gurgel



I couldn't do that to him. He's been a huge disappointment for years now but I still enjoy his fights. I say give him one fight. If he loses then never again.

im gonna be honest and say that i was not as impressed with DC as i thought i would be. i guess my expectations were a little too high. i do think that frank mir is a perfect opponent for him at HW but he really should make his move to LHW.

safferdine looked really really good. i honestly thought nate was gonna handle him but it was really the other way around. the dude has some sick kickboxing. i say throw him in the deep end of the UFC's WW division. maybe not a top 5 guy, but definitely somebody from the top 10.

as for barnett, i say throw him to the wolves of the UFC's HW division. if they are gonna give him another chance in the octagon he needs to perform against the the upper echelon fighters. i think a guy like roy nelson, travis brown, or struve would be great matchups for barnett.

DC is fighting Mir in April.

Gomi is fighting Diego Sanchez on the Japan card. But I would love to see Noons and Gomi fight, was thinking that last night.

Someone in the van said Staring should get at least a fight in the UFC, De Fries is exactly who I thought of.

Also really like Jacare vs. Costa

Here's Sherdog's suggestions:

Saffiedine vs Pierce
Marquardt vs Kampmann II
Barnett vs Nelson
Jacare vs Okami/Lombard winner
Mousasi vs Bader/Matyushenko winner
Healy vs Varner
