I wonder what his nose looks like now after surgery. It will be good to see "ace" back in action though, I think he should move back up to light heavy though, some of the video I have seen of him trying to cut weight looks pretty unhealthy, and he's said before that it is really hard to make weight. He probably walks around at near 200 pounds being 6'1" with that much muscle mass, so he could fight without having to drain himself before a fight. All he would have to do is pack on a bit more muscle if he even needed to at all.

I think that he could do well in lightheavy, franklin vs. chuck or tito or babalu would be sweet fights!

Cant wait for Aces return I guess this means he's not getting a rematch for his next fight and that he'll have to work is way up the line again. Mabye he'll fight Swick seeing that hes one of the only MW contenders that isnt on a card anytime soon but my best guess is theyll give him a stepping stone like Sasaki. I hope Babalu returns too he's a good fighter who can give any LHW trouble if he come into the fight with a decent gameplane.

Forum Bets: 0-0(Still undefeated)
Death Matches: 12-4-0

except babalu would never fight tito UNLESS tito loses. If tito beats chuck, there's no way babalu gets a title shot and even if he did, he'd prob have to fight chuck again first and we all know how that ends.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

I'm willing to bet they throw in some no name for his return, then possibly someone like Swick, Leben, Marquardt, if he doesn't get his rematch with Silva after his first fight.
