That leaves... Mousasi? Manuwa? I'd enjoy watching Gus beat either of those guys.



Mousasi actually dropped to middleweight, so that fight's out of the question now as well.

It'd be cool if Gus and Davis would put the friendship aside and have a rematch, but I don't see it happening.



Did Gegard drop? As near as I can tell he called out all the bad asses at 205 and got no where so he started calling out the bad asses at MW.

I wouldn't be surprised if lil Nog gets a fight before Gegard

Obvious choice is Cormier, but I think the UFC wants to keep them both as options for title challengers. The other two I could think of is a rematch with Davis or Hendo if he beats Belfort. I don't think Belfort gets the call as I think he will move back to 185 after this fight - probably fight Machida for a #1 contender fight (I know he said he wont fight at 185 unless its a title shot, but the UFC makes the matches and offers the fights).

Gus already beat Te Huna. Manuwa is a good matchup. Also, The Mauler isn't with Alliance anymore, and I'm pretty sure he has said that, although they are friends, he would fight Phil Davis.

Where's Bubbles and his unfunny jokes about fighters pulling out when it's deserved? OR does he only save that for world champions like Cruz?


And as fas as this goes, I say Make Gustafson vs Cormier the main event of Fox in April or January if they don't mind the quick turn arounds & Have Bisping vs Moussasi as the main event in London for March.

There really isn't anyone else for Alex to fight, unless Henderson beats Belfort and Rashad beats Sonnen. Alex has already beat Tu Huna, Thiago Silva, and won't fight Davis.

I hate to let Cormier win with his diva demands of only fighting Alex in the states but Lil Nog may have forced the UFC's hand.

The best part about this injury was Sonnen's tweets last night, he had a field day with Little Nog pulling out. I actually had no idea why he was tweeting talking so much crap about little nog till I saw he pulled out then it made sense. But seriously who pulls out 4 months before a fight? He could take 2 months off or recovery and still have a 8 week training camp.

Btw this was his best tweet last night "Maybe dos Santos can led Lil Nog his heart while his face heals"- I honestly don't get why people don't like Sonnen he talks crap and walks the walk every time.

This was a dumb booking anyways. DC vs Gus. These guys both want to fight each other for a shot at the title, they are both top level, book the fight. What is everyone so afraid of?

How is it that the twin who gets run over by a truck when he's younger is less injury prone than the one who had no childhood trauma? I don't doubt that he's injured but good grief! He needs to move somewhere where he can take one fight a year and ride off into the sunset.

Here I am. Let me spell it out for you: Dominick Cruz's last fight: Oct 1, 2011. Lil Nog has fought twice since then.


Don't forget to try the veal

I'd assume it would be for the title only though

Here`s a quote from an article less than a month ago.

Aftonbladet.se reports that Gustafsson has decided to leave Alliance MMA to set up camp back home in Sweden. The most prominent reason given was the increased demand on his schedule now that he is fighting more often and the high monetary cost of holding camps so far away from home. As one of the top contenders at light heavyweight it does make sense for Gustafsson to start developing a camp more tailored to his needs, but it wasn't the only reason Gustafsson gave. The fighter also went on the record to say that he could see a potential fight with Davis looming and felt like it would be a better idea if they weren't training at the same gym. He also noted that they train together much less often than they used to. Sounds like a battle of top contenders could be brewing.

Not sure why anyone thinks they won`t fight. If they`d been training together for their whole careers I would understand but they haven`t. They`re just good friends in a sport where that doesn`t mean a whole lot.

This card is months away. They should just wait until Rashad smokes Chael in 1 round and then make Gus vs Rashad.

If Rashad can beat Gus he deserves another crack. If Gus wins he just further proves he deserves a rematch.

Lil Nog needs TRT. Vitor was getting injured like yhis constantly before the juice.
