OK the Sylvia fight. How long was Fedor in there? 36 seconds. 36 seconds, 6 months ago. If you combine the ring rust with the alleged ridiculous promo schedule it's a wonder Fedor looked as good as he did. Barnett could give Fedor trouble. Anyone ever see that match between Fedor and Arona back in 2000? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UFqL9dhkQI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PraE0Utr8AA Arona had Fedor down on the ground the majority of the time but Fedor somehow won the decision. Fedor was having serious trouble with Arona. If Barnett could do that it could be a good fight but still I think Fedor will catch Barnett with a punch or a submission. My .02 dollars worth..heeheh

Damn Arlovski and his glass chin. I had to watch the replay just to see what took him down. He was looking great too. Beating Fedor with the jabs and kicks.

I agree Fedor looked pretty bad out there, and I also attribute this win to alot of luck.

Everybody gettin jacked up for Saturay night? GSP! GSP! The Machida/Silva fight will hopefully be killer also. Whoa ... Diaz/Guida...should be fun...thoughts, predictions?

I hope he takes BJ Penn permantly out of contention. I hate that idiot.

I want to see GSP kick Penn's ass eh
post #51 of 671
I want to see Penn beat GSP. I also want to see Machida lose. I think he's the boringest fighter there is. I'm also rooting for Guida. Awkward style, but I think he's fun to watch.

I think Machida has the potential to be an exciting fighter. Hopefully he'll pull off some crazy moves and try to finish early into the match. Thiago should be able to push him into do something.

My picks for Saturday:
1) Penn by TKO
2) Machida by decision
3) Diaz by submission



Regarding the Affliction card, not sure why anyone would have thought Arlovski had a chance. Glass chin and pathetic ground skills is not going to beat Fedor on any day. All you had to do is see Arlovski need a gift ref decision in the Roy Nelson fight to see he had no chance in the bowels of hell to beat Fedor.

You could say that Fedor was losing the fight but how many times have we seen Fedor in that position? He was losing against Randleman after that legendary suplex, he was in a bad way against Crocop going into the fight with an injured hand, he was losing the fight when Fujita rocked him with that right hook, he was losing against Choi with that GnP, etc. But what does Fedor do? He maintains his composure, keeps a cool mind and adapts to his opponent and that's his greatest strength above all else.

Barnett is the only person left right now in the HW division that poses a threat to Fedor; he's an aggressive grappler with an incredible heart, deadly in the scramble, and has shown better striking as of late. The only barrier between both of them is their unwillingness to fight each other but money has always been a great motivator and Fedor has stated he'll fight anybody for the sake of the sport.

Helio Gracie, 95yo, passed away yesterday... Helio and his brother Carlos were the main developers of what we call brazilian jiu jitsu nowadays. A great loss to the jiu jitsu world and any martial arts.

RIP.

R.I.P. Grandmaster Helio Gracie.

Without him modern MMA wouldn't exist and now he has passed on into eternity with his contributions to martial arts.

How big is the news in Brazil? His family buried him very quickly with most of the family still scattered across the globe I hear.

All the big newspapers and news on tv reported Helio's death in Brazil. The sports shows gave lots of attention to that and everybody related to any martial art in the country has mourned for this great loss.

Well like Neil Young sang back in 1975: "Tonight's the Night..." lol

I think I am looking with more interest to the Machida/Sylva fight than any of them. Well Guida/Diaz too....
