I like the idea. The only thing is like someone mentioned earlier it might be hard for the WEC to keep fans interested (especially the casual fan)by highlighting the lighter weight classes. Even though alot of times the smaller weight classes turn out better technical fights and are always fast paced. Casual fans and new fans are usually more interested in big guys throwing haymakers ( Example: Kimbo Slice) then they are technically skilled battles.

He must be refering to when Chael Sonnen destroyed Anderson Silva in his wildest dreams! No way in hell would that happen in real life!

Also, it sucks Paulo won't fight Anderson! Just chaulk it up to friendships getting in the way again!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I'm not being completly serious but honestly I would have a lot of anger if I ever saw Rhino in the UFC.

Because the guys just a bad fighter. He has no real skill at the stand up game, His ground game is bad, His chin isn't great, He doesn't have amazing power.

He's kinda like a crap version of James Irvin and Irvin isn't even that good.

Well maybe instead of getting of angry about it how about looking it as a positive because you know he would most likely get his ass kicked every time he went inside the octagon

I'm sorry the Legend when it comes to Rhino Marshall I have a tough time looking at the positives. Like when Stann beat him I was more upset about the fact Rhino held the title as long as he did than I was happy he got his ass beat.

Thanks man but unfortantly my feelings about Rhino Marshall are at the point where nothing he does can be looked at as a positive.

They should bring Stann over. He's the real deal just look at his record. Withing 2 fights he would be the UFC champ

MJbish why make him wait 2 fights.

They should just strip Forrest and give Stann the title you know because he was a Marine so he is automatically the greatest.

What was I thinking I completly forgot about that. Hell Stann is so good why not just strip everyone of their belts and give them all to Stann. He doesn't even need to defend them he's just automatic champ till he dies.
