I'm not comparing their steroid records, because Bigfoot isn't ripping into Barnett for steroids. He's doing it for Barnett being somewhat aloof.

I just think it's funny that he can call Barnett a filthy person for doing something so minor, when he likely doesn't think he's a filthy person for doing something much more serious.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Yeah, I'm with you on this one Smacky. This is all about Barnett as a person instead of his steriod problems. If it comes to it they can fight after the Grand Prix because I don't think either guy will make it to the finals.

The least Brazilian Brazilian in MMA? Would you mind explaining that to me? That is a little confusing statement.

That's the conclusion I came to myself. He thinks now that he beat a undersized overweight aging Fedor now he can take any fighter or at least thats what I get from him as of late and if they did fight I would expect Barnett to beat him rather easily IMO.

However, he could be doing Barnett a favor by stoking a fire, if the tournament is canceled I would expect Dana to send Barnett packing but if there is some hype around this fight he might give it a second thought and keep Barnett for a wile.

I don't think the Grand Prix is going to be cancelled. This will probably be the last tournament that Zuffa does. Plus the way Barnett and Dana looked at the Summit, I think Barnett is secure.

I actually don't think SF is over, I think Zuffa will keep it around and use it to run GP events in the future at different weights maybe as well, I think it will become like the the K-1 of Zuffa where all the credible belts will be held in the UFC, SF will still have there own champs but it will be the GP winners that hold all the credits.

AT the end of the day SF does have a strong fan base, it is still on the rise, it is making Money, its not really harming the UFC, it does have a good TV contract, why would Zuffa buy it and want to destroy it when they can use it as an extra part of there organisation running a slightly different angle like hosting the GP's and it be a win for them.

In fact SF could be good the the UFC, because if Showtime views that may have the channel to watch Boxing get into MMA as well though SF then they may start wanting more MMA and start buying UFC PPV's.

Does not really make sense for a company to buy a company that is doing well just to destroy it even if you beak competition form there existing company, when they can run both situationally with a slight twist, the GP'd been the answer, and do well with both, as for bringing fighters from on promotion to the other, they can do that anyway without closing one off.
