oh, don't get me wrong, I agree.

The game passed him by. He really should have dropped to 205 and gone to a legit tough camp and not be the big dog at his camp at home. That worked when he got by on being kick-ass at sambo and fast for a HW.

Still love the guy though, and think he's a legend.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Such an uneducated poster.
Oh he only pulled out over his elbow injury not his shoulder injury, rib injury, or what was it a knee injury right now. I'm just amazed that a man can have four injuries in three years and only pull out of one fight.

I didn't realize that the Rizzo fight was his last one.


Speaking of rival organizations... Doesn't Zuffa own both Strikeforce and UFC? What's the point of having two separate organizations? Why not merge them into one? Kinda wondering about the politics behind all the multiple organizations thing.

To me it would make more sense to have one central organization, albeit with a little more structure than the UFC that runs the MMA.

Yes. Probably because he fought a shitload of fights injured. Including the Chael and the Okami fights.

As we all know, we should definitely hold how many times a 35+ year old fighter gets injured after more than a dozen years in the sport against him.
