Velasquez was healthy and had a solid game plan. JR looked like he wasnt taking the fight seriously since it was a laugher the last time.

JR will refocus and climb back into contention to set up Velasquez vs Cigano III .

THAT will be a great match.

Just watched it finally. That was a pretty plain and simple beat down.

Anybody watch the new Bellator series last night? All the fights were good until the last one. I guess the kid that lost blew his knee out attempting a takedown, then turtled up and got hammer fisted until the ref stepped in. Then the announcers went on to explain how great it was watching the tremendous performance the guy that won put on. It was like.... what?

I heard that Overeem got bigger.

They say he's at stage 6 now.

Daniel Cormier is a beast. People don't know that he's Cain's sparring partner.

I don't see a weakness in Cormier other then the fact that he is on the definite shorter side for the heavyweight division. He is a Olympic wrestler who was in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. In terms of wrestling he may be the best to ever step foot in the octagon. Secondly, he's just as comfortable on his feet then he is on the ground. In fact he prefers to stand and box. From what I've seen his boxing is very solid and he even has the flexibility to throw head kicks at 5'10" 235.

The UFC will have a new division in the near future. The organization is planning on adding strawweights (115 pounds). "As the sport continues to grow and we go into these other markets like Latin America, Asia, yes, we will eventually open up a lighter weight division. Which is a great thing. It's an amazing opportunity for fighters all over the world," said Dana White on UFC Tonight.

"Straw-weights"? Jeez.... I'm finding it harder and harder to embrace all these new divisions. So a natural 135lber is now going to feel the need to cut to 115?? Seriously? Ugh.


On another note.... I'm liking this new season of TUF so far. Looks like they actually have some decent fighters for a change and Jones and Sonnen seem like good coaches.

I've never liked Tuf at all. But I can't wait to see Sonnen get mauled after its over.

So I guess these Straw-weights are going to be like 4 foot something lol. At the moment I don't follow any fights under 145.
