BJ, Fitch? Jake Shields?

It sounds like Shields was given the shot after his (average) win over kampmann. GSP has beaten BJ twice at WW, Mowed through Fitch, put Kos down twice, beaten alves, there's no-one else after Shields he hasn't gone over. There's been ongoing talk of GSP moving up to 185, we'll see how it goes.

yep.

i think it was actually the most compact/shortest knockout punch ive ever seen. i guess it helped that the right hand rocked him.

Also the Edgar/Maynard was awesome, especially for a fight that was shaping as a snoozer.

Picked all the main card fights cept for the championship. Picked Maynard. Half way through thought it might end in a draw. Rematch on.

Yeah looks awesome Gilly!

Some incredible fights there, I suspect we'll end up with a Fedor v Overeem semi ( 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O ) and an Arlovski v Barnett semi.

UFC got off to a good start at 125 - bit bummed it ended up as a draw in Edgar v Maynard, but good judging.

126 Looks great

Silva v Belfort
Jones v Bader
Griffin v Franklin etc etc.

Bit of a bummer that it the tourney is like that but dosnt really matter. Does anyone know if there will be 2 fights in 1 night ala pride or is it just a fight schedule?

125 didnt impress me that much, some pretty lackluster performances by a few fighters.. altho the main event was off the hook, i didnt really care for the fight at all, but holy shit that was a good fight.

126 looks mean, cant wait.

Nah, It won't be a grand prix (dudes fighting more than once in a night) I'd imagine it will be played out over 6-9 months or so. I don't think Grand Prix's are legal in the states.

Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos announced as TUF season 13 coaches.

Didn't see that coming, but I guess it makes sense with UFC wanting to keep their heavyweights in the spotlight (free tv) while Strikeforce is really bringing it this year with their HW tournament.

Apparently winner gets first crack at Cain when he's back from Injury, sometime in Q3 2011? His injury has really chucked a spanner in the works for UFC.

Keep an eye on Strikeforces new Rhadi Reguson, pretty promising so far.


Btw, Free open trainings on Saturday still going at AK Uni Judo, I am basing it 50/50 between groundwork and standup grappling(gi) Plus circuits after.

If there is enough demand will add no gi Judo regular after, but so far only nails is keen for that.

Anyway, its free... if you want to learn or just have some extra rolls come along. 0X

I'm wondering what Lesnar has to bring to the table as a trainer. Some of the dudes he'll be 'training' will possibly have been training longer than he has.

Rhadi Ferguson just can't take that dude seriously because he's Kimbo's cousin.

Im a bit suprised about the coaches aswell, especially since the majority of the contestants will have more mma experience than Brock. Hopefully next season will be 135/145 lb'ers.

Also a bit dissapointed that this means Brock vs Dos Santos will probably be 6-8 months away.

Lesnar has the $$ and the profile to bring good support staff to the table. I think you will see him take the reigns with the wrestling 101's, but any finesse will come from his support staff. Very similar to GSP.
