I wouldn't mind seeing him back tbh, the HW division could use fighters with names, doesn't matter if their getting old or not.

It was cool to see him in Nog's crew the other night. All the best to him but I think he has been past his prime for a while. He might eke out a few wins against lower-end comp in the UFC but that's it.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Yeah, I think hanging with Team Blackhouse has helped him recently. I also agree that he is probably past his prime right now. Though I think he could make a bigger dent in the UFC then everyone thinks.

Rizzo is past it, if he came back it would just be unnecessary punishment for him - Barnett/Yvel scenario's all over again.

Well with the amount of fights that the UFC will have to put on with Fox they may have to bring Rizzo back. The man is a pretty good fighter and a legend. If he doesn't do well then they can always cut him.

I think he's the sort of guy that Dana said he doesn;t want to make money off - a Liddel type. Their Spike and Versus deals run out soon so the FOX deal just replaces that. Their expected to fold Strikeforce into the UFC midway through next eyar, so i don't think their really struggling for fighters.

Yeah, I guess that is true. That being said I don't think they will have to trim their roster down too much in order to fully absorb Strikeforce. Maybe all of this was meant to happen.
