My guess is UFC 150 will be Jones/Hendo and Bendo/Edgar 2 with a strong third fight.

Plus the heavier weight classes always headline, unless they had a Bantamweight or Flyweight title fight there's only gonna be one title fight on this one and it doesn't look like that's gonna happen due to the ******* idiotic Australian athletic commission.
Which round did you think was a 10-7 and in what fight? Maynard-Edgar 2 round 1 Maynard 10-7?

Also if Edgar/Hendo 2 doesn't come to Calgary, it still has me left scratching my head.

Machida/Davis is a good fight and a good possibility, but Dana was chuckling to himself and saying the fans were gonna "LOVE IT!" if he could get it done. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Machida/Davis, but it seems like he was hinting at something more significant.

Yes, Round 1 of Edgar/Maynard II.

I have a serious problem with a round like that, where Maynard dropped Edgar four times, hit him over 90 times, and the fight literally could have been stopped at any moment being scored the same as rounds like the fifth of Hendo/Shogun, the third of McCall/Johnson and Penn/Fitch, to me those rounds aren't the same, Fitch, Shogun, and McCall all landed a ton of unanswered shots and I would have scored them 10-8 myself but none of those was as bad as Edgar/Maynard II, the ref could have stopped Edgar/Maynard II on several occasions and not a complaint would have been made.

Part of me thinks they'll give Davis a guy like Bonnar because he was severely outclassed by Evans and Machida's probably the last guy they want in there with Davis. Shogun/Machida III seems like it could happen and I think it'd have a ton of intrigue, and both guys need as many fights as possible because I don't really think they have that much time left in MMA.

Firstly, Shogun-Hendo fifth round was 10-9, not 10-8;however I totally understand your point. I think it could have been 10-7 for Maynard as well.



Secondly, I also agree that they might not won't Davis in there with Machida just yet, because they need Davis for the future of the division and they can't risk him losing credibility again.

Lastly, I agree that Machida-Shogun 3 could garner some interest, but I disagree with you that his time is nearing it's end. Machida is only 33 and he's super talented. He's a got a few good years left imo.

He's only 33 yes but if you remember his dad wanted him to retire after the Shogun loss, he's just not as vocal about as a guy like Rampage who bitches and moans constantly about it.

I wouldn't mind seeing Machida/Bader and Davis/Shogun but I'd be down for the final Shogun/Machida, I'm pretty confident Machida would beat him again especially after Shogun's rough 2011.

Also, I'm still not sure why the judges didn't give Shogun and Hendo 10-8 rounds in that fight.

Dana and Wright said pretty clearly during the presser that ALDO is headlining..so no other belt will be in play since the higher weight-class always headlines.

And a reporter asked about Hendo/Edgar, Dana said No, and reiterated ALDO headlining.

Jones/Evans winner could fight at Ufc 150 / 151, or 152 in September (22nd).

If they are aiming to release tickets 1st week of May, 2/3's of the card including the Main Event, Co-headliner will be known soon enough

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

1) Ya, his dad. If my dad just so me get violently knocked out in a mma bout, I'm sure he'd want me to hang it up too. He's still got the skill set and the mindset if you ask me.

2) Those are some match-ups I'd def be excited to see as well.

3)I thought the round should have been 10-8 as well for Shogun and I scored the fight a draw.

Also I find it interesting that the dummies at the commission have "Shogun Rua" as his name instead of Mauricio on the scorecards. Do they actually think his name is Shogun?

Wouldn't surprise me if they did.

More updates on this. Looks like JMAC might make this his retirement fight!
