Cerrone x Pettis would be fireworks. Glad Edgar gets no more rematches. Nate is a tough matchup. Relentless boxing. Let`s just hope Bendo neutralizes Nate on the ground.

Where the fuck did my Rachelle and Logan go ffffuuuu.gif

Are you giving Henderson the grappling advantage or am I reading his wrong?

Edgar won that fight.

I think its funny how Nate gets the shot after Rory absolutely teabagged him. I understand it was at 170, but I still see the bigger, stronger Bendo chopping Nate down with leg kicks and walking right through him.

No not at all. Nate def. takes Bendo on the ground regardless of Rogan going to hype bendo as "impossible to submit."

The Diaz bros are pretty aggressive with submissions so hopefully Rogan won't be too biased in his announcing.

Yes, but Nate's big weakness, and Nick does not share it, is that he doesn't do great against fighters who just pressure and smother him, like Gray Maynard and even Clay Guida. Bendo's best bet is to push him up against the cage and constantly go for the takedown. Standup, I don't see Benson winning. BJJ, I also don't see him winning. Wrestling, I give to Benson.

It would be interesting to see Rory fight Nick. Nick is significantly bigger than his brother, and tougher, but with essentially the exact same style. I would like to know how far the toughness and size can go.

I agree with your points.

I only like to see the Diaz brothers win because they are very aggressive with their submissions. I hate it when fighters just lay on their backs and stall.

the next ufc on fox is stacked!

bendo vs nate
gustaffson vs shogun
rory vs penn

the diaz bros have some of the most active bottom game. I hope Nick gets his head straightened out and come out of retirement

I got Bendo, Gustaffson and if he's motivated Penn, if unmotivated Rory. I'm not sold on Rua honestly, I don't think Vera was that good in their fight as much as Rua looked slow and kind of old. When Jones gets past Hendo, which we all know he will, the strongest challenge I believe will be Gustaffson. And I don't care how much trash talking Sonnen does I don't think he would last longer than 2 rounds against Jones. Give him Phil Davis and lets see how he does.

Yeah Shogun is my fave fighter but unless he connects in the first rd or so, my hope diminishes. I knew the Forrest II fight wasn`t really telling of how he really was after another knee surgery. His footwork and head movement in the Machida fights and Liddell fight was stellar. Dunno what`s going on with his training at UDL either. IMO he needs ato get back with Kings and just use Dida as additional training. I might be expecting too much since with as much surgeries he had, he`s most likely never the same.

Rousey by first-round armbar. Again. Think Vegas has stopped taking wagers on this outcome?

Huge announcement from Dana White at 2 PM. Rumor is that UFC 151 is cancelled.
