Dammit.

I don't want another Couture headlined fight card. Especially if it's on PPV.

Don't flame too hard; just want to see some title fights and new blood.

Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.

It's that time where Zuffa decides to throw us another free fight *hopes*.

It feels like the UFC is trying to get as much money out of Randy before he decides to retire (for real) or suffers a career-ending injury.

I don't so much mind them riding the Couture train to the bank, but he should only be fighting "Big" fights. Coleman is a poor choice IMO.

Silva Couture at 205 would be cool though, since it has no title implications for that class.

But yea, I don't see Silva v Belfort happening. I hope i'm wrong.

It wouldnt be "cool" for couture, because he'd end up leaving on a stretcher.

Of course thats what their going to do. I also see them trying to put a bunch of the mid level guys against him to get their names out. The UFC needs more money makers with guys like Hughes, Franklin, Couture, Liddell, Silva possibly, and a few others nearing the end of their careers.

Elbows are slow to heal. I shattered mine (shattered, not dislocated) when I was a kid. After the surgery, it was six weeks in a splint before they could put a cast on. Then six weeks in a cast. Then a couple months of PT to get range-of-motion and strength back.

Elbows, knees, and shoulders... they're buggers to injure.

Ahhh, nuts. Hopefully Silva only needs a month extra or something, because this is the fight that needs to happen at 185. Then if he gets past Belfort, Silva should rematch Nate.

I dare to say that other than Hendo and Franklin Vitor is much bigger win than anyone else Silva has fought so far on his entire career. No I didn't count Griffin fight because styles make fights and that match up was very bad for Forrest.
Either way Vitor is ex ufc champ with wins against some very tough guys. I really hope Silva brings his A-game because if he doesn't he'll end up eating one of those lightning fast combos from Vitor and it'll be over in round 1. It'll be Vitor's hand speed vs. Silva's accuracy and more versatile stand up, lets see which wins. ^^

Akiyama could work I suppose, but I don't want Maia to face another dangerous striker this soon. He needs some time to improve his standup and takedowns before he can take a run for the title again.
Give Maia someone like Bisping. Bisping showed some great ground work on his last fight, Im curious to see how good it REALLY is.
