but more importantly if Randy loses he will almost definetely have to find a new job, if he can't beat a LHW that isn't even ranked in the top 10, what then? keep him around as a gate guardian?

This, and also ill be there to watch!

I was originally trying to get motivated to see lil nog v hendo, whoch wouldve been ok, but was thrilled to hear Randy was in. Been watchin him for years and my first live event so cheeerin. I dont think it would really matter who he was fighting, unless it was another 'legend'

I expect him to do a gonzaga on vera

and there are a few UK dudes who are knocking on the door and it will be interesting to see who comes to the party.

not many big names but i think some decent fights will be had!

Favourite Fighters
Anderson Silva
Mark Hunt
'John' Wayne Parr
Nathan 'Carnage' Corbett
Bruce Lee

Apart from the main event I think there's more fights I wanna see on this card than there was at UFC 104.

Wilkes vs Brown, Bisping vs Kang and Swick vs Hardy are 3 great fights.The headliner is meh but should be a great night.

UFC 105 isnt going to be pay per view? I actually very interested in the fight but I wouldnt pay for it. I am just interested in seeing who wins. I am a big fan of Vera so I hope he wins. I really want to see Dan Hardy fight. But if its free I will definitely watch it.

I agree with andrewp I think its time for Couture to really retire, same with Chuck Liddell.

Why do fighters do it?

We saw it in fights like Winner/Delgado, Henderson/Bisping, Rampage/Wanderlei 3, Gonzaga/Crocop, the list goes on and on.

Why do fighters throw those unnessecary punches or strikes once their opponent is already out cold? I don't buy that "heat of the moment" argument, because it is clear to everyone watching the fight (and I would think especially the fighter's opponent) that one fighter is out cold and any further strikes are simply not needed.

I think, that if there were to be a serious injury in the UFC it would come by way of an unnessecary strike once the opponent is out. I don't think the refs are to blame because these KO's happen fast and they cant always get there in time. The problem I think lies with the fighter, they need to understand that if their opponent is out, you don't need to risk serious damage by a flurry of power punches against a lifeless opponent.

Also, I'm certainly not against finishing a fight, but there is a huge difference between winning a fight by TKO and throwing stupid strikes against an already KO'd opponent.

I am going to go out on a limb and say you aren't someone who earns a paycheck or can advance your career by winning fights?

The fight isn't won until a the ref steps in, I am sure you know that.
There is so much riding on these fights for these guys. I think every single one of them would rather punch someone when they didnt need to, than let a victory slip away because they thought someone was out cold, when they aren't.

This isn't ballet. Why do people constantly bring this topic up? They are paid to win fights.

And win fights they do. I think you are a fan of the wrong sport if you find this a problem.
