IMO, the ufc chose the wrong main event to host the big screen. GSP's wrestling may do more harm than good to casual fans. Cain vs JDS card would be my choice.

This is the most unsophisticated and un-well-thought-out thing you need to do in life. Two half-naked men are going to get in a steel cage and fight for the applause of a drunken, rowdy crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on a Saturday night on a big screen!! We don't need to plan for this.....



****Allow me to explain it now. And if you’re a turkey, you’re not gonna get this. If you’re an eagle, like myself, you will...CHAEL P. SONNEN on the big screen is the greatest thing since my conception on the floor at a Republican Convention....

And before you ask your parents for the money to go to the "movies" to watch 'ole Chael-Daddy....ask yourself this question - - > Who is Chael Sonnen? Chael Sonnen is a tyrant. Chael Sonnen is a dictator. Chael Sonnen is the leader of the free world....

Why should YOU watch on Saturday? Well, that's when the fight is. If you try to watch it Friday, you're gonna look like a doofus and if you tune in on Sunday you're gonna look like a Johnny-come-lately. That's why we're doing this whole promotion because the fight is on Saturday ... so that's when they should watch it.




**** = Your welcome

I had a good time when I went to see Lesnar vs. Valesquez. I'm not a big drinker so popcorn and soda was just fine for me. There was only about 11-12 guys in the theatre with us but they were all seemed like dedicated MMA fans. Knew what they were talking about at least. Alan Belcher was there meeting fans and signing autographs which was pretty cool. Guess it just depends on where you go.

Cain vs JDS will likely be the better fight but any GSP fight will sell more tickets.

He is by far the biggest draw in MMA now that Lesnar is gone.

Is it possible to be a dictator and leader of the free world at the same time?
