LOL... well I think that Rory might be on his way to be the most hated MMA fighter. Fans did NOT sound happy after that fight with all his showboating. Disgustingly good striking though. Holy hell. I say if GSP's too afraid to fight Silva let Rory do it.

Props to BJ for withstanding those body shots. I was literally cringing watching that.

Props to Gustafsson too. Guy's for real.

And finally... props to Benson. Showed how to execute a smart gameplan WITHOUT looking like a pussy running away (hear that Condit?).

Benson vs. Aldo! Let's see it!

Dana must be pretty happy about this card. Very entertaining.

Penn is too lazy to cut to 155; he shouldn't get any more chances at 170.

But you've got to be kidding me that Rory can fight Silva. The only person who is could give him some trouble is Jon Jones or if GSP makes him come down to 175 for the catch-weight as he's hinted before.

Rory could move up to 185 without much trouble. And he's strong as hell. Very precise striking too.

I'm not saying he'd beat Silva but I think he'd put up a much better show than Forrest and Bonnar did lol.

Just a show of hands. Who thinks Jones will beat Silva if they fight?

I feel that Jones won't have too much to worry about when facing Silva. Even if Jones can't land punches, Silva will still have trouble throwing counter punches because of the reach advantage. If the fight goes into the clinch I'll give the advantage to Silva but only by a little. We've seen the type of throws, spinning back fists, and elbows Jones is capable of up close. On the ground it can go both ways. Silva can catch Jones in a submission or Jones can destroy Silva with his elbows. In the end I think Jones would take the fight with a Ref stoppage/TKO or by decision.

Alistair Overeem wants a piece of Jones once he moves up to HW.

That's another fight I'd be interested in just because of the sheer size of Overeem.

As for Silva and Jones, I think Jones would win a decision, he'd fight extremely smart and long against Silva.

Hector Lombard is scary. He just took out Toquino. The guy is built like a brick house.



Toquino in an animal himself

Dos Santos is too good of a boxer. Cain has a ton of power, but he is a brawler and wrestler. If can can utilize takedowns early and often, he can win this fight Chael Sonnen style. But if he wants to stand with JDS, it'll be a rough fight for Velasquez.
I think I said this last time they fought too.

Rematch? Or will somebody else get a title shot?

Overeem will fight Velasquez next most likely. My prediction is that Overeem will squash big foot.

TBH Velasquez can beat Overeem using the same style of fighting he beat Dos Santos with.

This is my guess

If the fight goes past the 3rd round Cain will take it. My take is that Overeem will finish Cain in the 2nd.
