I'm 7 weeks into having my rotator cuff reattached, I con't believe how much it still hurts like the devil. That sucks for Cain, I hope his recovery goes well.

I refuse to believe he will be off for a year. July/August return. He's super human.

If he IS off for a year...then a giant flailing FFS.

Tough loss for HW MMA and the UFC, even if temporarily. Cain is a guy you would hope to showcase often if you are a promoter. The most talent and exciting fighter in the largest weight class, if not all of MMA, executing his craft with a level of precision and acumen most fighters dream of. Like everyone else, I hope he recovers properly and can return and perform at or near the high level he already has.

I like MMA less because of this forum

Brutal, feels like the Derrick Rose of MMA. Amazing talent, should be hitting his prime. I hope he is able to recover and come back the same monster.

I'm still fuming over this. He's like the #1 guy I want to watch fight. It makes me so frustrated!

HW champ out
MW champ fights in a couple of weeks
WW champ might be retired
LW champ out
BW (don't get me f'n started on cruz)
BW womens champ fights in a couple of weeks
FlyW champ fights this weekend

that leave only three/four title fights that can happen in the first half of the new year... out of 9 weight classes (10 whenever straw takes center stage).

not a good way to build the new year.


Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!
