Good matchups. The UFC is smart to set up the free fights like they do, because thats what makes them the money. Thats what made WWF take off back in the day I think. Once they stopped having all their talent having five minute matches with The Brooklyn Brawler and Mr. Who, and started putting on quality matches for free, they got more PPV buys and better attendance.



I know you are just using it as a point of reference, but I am making a personal plea for no more comparisons between MMA and pro "wrestling."



I understand this but the fight match ups are becoming more WWE than competiveley matched up. Koscheck - Sanchez?



Come on nate, 2 top 10 welterwights IMO. I always want to see any fight with top 10 guys going at it. Most of all, It's freeeeeeee! gotta love that

Sanchez has fought enough of these guys not to be fighting Hughes or GSP. The WWE side has put Serra against GSP instead and Hughes fighting Lytle? They really are not the best match ups for the division.

Nothing's changed since Koscheck - Sanchez last fight, Koscheck has beat a few gate keepers whilst Sanchez has gone on to beat top competitors in the divsion, it is almost as if Sanchez has gone right back to step one.

On top of this it's a bad match up styles, it could be very boring. I may be wrong, I thought Karo - Diego may of been boring, but ultimately my point is that yes the entertainment and money matter side of things is still preventing us from seeing the best fights regularly for each division.

Ken-Flo will takes this one, its going to be a ground war! I think ken-flo will win by tko(cut) the dudes got sharp elbows!


Yep and he goes for it always. He can be getting his ass kicked and BAM, he gets a lucky elbow, cuts the guy and the fight is over.

I like the sound of Grove vs Belcher. They seem to be about equal in skill IMO so it should be fun.


Ya, I'm excited to see if Kendell is still improving. Hoping hes a guy like GSP or Rashad who seems to improve every fight
