Dana White on FOX 4, Machida at 185lbs, JDS vs Overeem, BJ vs Rory (media scrum)

So.. according to Dana Machida was ready to move to 185,,,

And JDS wants out of his fight with Cain because he wants Overeem so bad.

Lots of good stuff.

Kind of explains why Machida came so thin into the fight.
Damn, i wanted that move to happen so bad,
now Andy will have to wait a bit longer before calling it the quits.

Most interesting thing about that interview was the news that they don't drug test in Toronto.

Do you really think they don't drug test in Toronto because some faceless reporter said so?

The commission asked the ufc to use an independent lab. Just because the commission themselves doesn't test, doesn't mean the fighters don't get tested.

Man how many interviews does he go through per show. I don't know how he does it. Think about it, he has to hold press conferences before the fight, weigh ins, meet fans, fight time, visit fighters in their locker rooms, post fight conference, and everything in between. He also finds time to film TUF Brazil and in the US.

This is why the sport is where it is today.

that was great, its awesome that dana and the fighters are just so open to the media and fans, no other sport is like this. every other sport it seems like these guys are on another level and no one can touch them but UFC does an awesome job of staying down to earth

i think its really wierd that machida was actually thinking about going down to 185, why?? dana wont let him go down if hes just going to go down and settle for being the best #2 MW in the wolrd, he would have to fight anderson

unless anderson is really thinking about retiring and vacating the title to do a final fight against GSP at catchweight...or simply moving up...but i doubt he actually would want to move up, i guess he really is planning on calling it quits...why andy? why?

I truly think Anderson is gonna retire or switch weight classes and an Anderson/GSP fight at Cowboys Stadium could be in the future.

I've watched all the videos on Machida going in, his Dragon Philosophy video on the UFC Youtube page, the Ultimate Insider feature on him this week, he kept talking about a man at 25 is in his prime and a how his dream is to be Champ again. Well, if that's his goals why go to 185 where you won't fight the Champ?

Anderson also isn't interested in any of the match ups for him at 185 according to his manager so if he's bored at 185 it's probably best to do something else because if he's disinterested that could come back to bite him in the ass, especially against a guy like Weidman who could maybe take him down and hold him down.

Dana also said Anderson won't fight until early next year and was gonna hold off until GSP/Condit happened.

38 or 48 stitches for Rory? What'd he get hit with a machete?
