The UFC is playing around with SF. They always show "Fight Nights" free on Spike. If they showed a main event card they would literally mop the floor with em unless they have Fedor, Arlovski, Nick, Cung Le, Werdum, and Overeem all fighting in the same night. They're basically controlling SF so they never get too big. They want em around as a proxy.

They can buy out SF, but what's the point. All they need are the fighters. They just got their MW champ and Overeem has already expressed interest in joing up. Nick Diaz would come back followed by Cung Le.

Then when Fedor has nowhere else to go he'll make his entrance...finally.

Bold 1: This is one of my big hopes. Le is a damn good fighter and I think he's really underrated.

Bold 2: I honestly hope Fedor makes the transfer soon, assuming he ever would, because he's getting older, and eventually he'll just be too old.

And a bunch of people who I don't care about because the two who I cared about are off the card.

Toughest. Decision. EVAR!
You stupid ?

Maia vs Grove is mediocre i love Maia but what the **** is Grove ever done ?

Finalist 1 and 2 of the TUF hype show how gives a **** ill watch a replay hahah the show has been god awful for talent , Johnson vs Brookins is a dead cert for the final ! im from the UK so i dont know yet please dont spoil !

and you can also see Bonnar vs Igor pokrajac which is no way better than any SF main card fights

Hendricks vs story you care ?


SF is better.

Cung definitely reps for the Asians. He's got sick sick combos that I've actually adopted. Ez...once their contracts are up grab em and then do a show in San Jose and that'll diminish SF big time.

It's a psychological msg that SF main card events are not worthy of challenging UFC main card events so they always put "second tiered" fights on for free as a big slap on the face or arse depending on how you look at it. Big brother loling...at the little bro.

Tell you the truth though SF cards are still entertaining so everybody is gonna watch both eventually.

Grove is obviously a placehoder so Maia can keep fighting while they try to find a high level MW who's not occupied.

I was refering to the finalist of TUF 1, not finalist #1 of TUF 11. Bonnar is a likable character, regardless of his ranking in the MMA world. I would've prefered a bigger name, but you can't win all the time.

I expect it to be Johnson, but Phan is a damn good and versatile fighter, he has the skills to win. Either way it'll be a good fight.

The main event of Strikeforce is Henderson vs Sobral. It wouldn't even be a co main on a good UFC card. If Maia was fighting a decent name, that fight alone would dwarf that main.

Who really cares about, I lost the biggest opportunit of my career for a sucker punch vs I bitchquit after one spinning back kick? Well, obviously you.

I agree

Henderson VS Babalu would be Co main event at UFC 124 and the headline at TUF 12 Finale easily , its good enough to be co main event at ufc 125 now that Aldo is out.

Henderson was Main event at 3 UFC events when he only had 5 fights there not to mention he was featured at UFC 100 behind 2 title fights and was 1 behind the co main event at UFC 88 , He is a worthy Main card guy.
,
Sobral was on the Main card lots of times at the UFC was Co Main at UFC 28 and was in a title fight with Liddell at UFC 62 just because he isnt a big Draw doesnt mean he hasnt got the skill he is 36 -8 overall and has a winning record in the UFC and has wins over Rua , Diabate ,Prangley , Sonnen , Lawler , Soko , Arsdale and whitehead.

I said good CARD. The co-main at 124, and most of the fights on the card, are pretty average at best. However look at 121. Henderson vs Sobral doesn't compare to Shields vs Kampmann or Lesnar vs Velasquez. On that card, a good CARD, it'd be #3.

Is being the third fight something to be ashamed of ? its certainly ahead of every fight at TUF 12 finale and every fight on UFC 124 bar the main event. On a good card behind a title fight and a number one contenders match being third fight is a good feat.
