Wasnt Hunt like 260 in the Fedor fight? Unless hes been doing nothing but eating twinkies and ho ho's since then I dont see how it would be a problem for him to make weight.

But Firing a guy for holding a choke 3 seconds passed is an automatic firing...alright.

Its very unlike of UFC to do this (sign Lesnar). The one thing that they had on PRIDE was the fact that they never signed celebs. Its going to be wierd. I hope he doesnt upset the flow of the HW div right now. It would really suck if he beat a top 10

To the best of my knowledge, Hunt was 290 for the Fedor fight. He's been at 265 before but it isn't an easy weight for him.

Really hope Fedor is at UFC 75, sitting front row because he is Fedor.

Really? I always though he fought at around 250-260lbs? Hope it works out, I really want to see Hunt vs Sylvia.

BJ fighting Stevenson sounds good but don't think Joe has what it takes to beat BJ.

Arlovski fighting Noguiera? I really don't know who to go for, I've always like Andrei(even during his boring matches) and I've liked Big Nog since I started watching Pride a couple of years ago.

What no Japan? If your building a worldwide audience Dana, don't forget the biggest market. And come back to Houston whenever you want.

A year. I rarely agree with Dana but this one sounds about right. If your going to use something, don't get caught.

Well keep calling, I'm sure he is really for war in the octagon.

I, personally, could care less about a Featherweight division. Hell, I really could care less about the Lightweight division, if it weren't for Penn and Heurta. Now there is a match-up.

Honestly, do we care if he comes to the UFC?
