TBH, i'm wayy more excited for Saturday's card than i am for the SB. Faber looked like a man possessed against McDonald.
Stories coming out that sh*t just got real down in Brazil.


http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/1/27/5351932/chael-sonnen-wanderlei-silva-get-into-fight-on-tuf-brazil-set

"Wanderlei and Chael fought," White said. "Just today. They literally fought."

While details aren't entirely clear as to how the altercation started, White says the fight went on for awhile before it was broken up, and that one of Silva's people jumped into the fray.

"While they were fighting one of Wanderlei's guys sucked punched Chael," White said. "They went crazy, crazy s--- happened there. We're dealing with that right now too. ... They literally fought today, it went on for awhile."

(edit was to switch out the bleacher report article)


....there are conflicting stories from various journalists and personalities suggesting that Sonnen was sucker-punched by a member of Silva's team. Whether or not it was during the fight, or if it was what started the brawl, is also unknown.

i would've LOVED it if they televised this TUF instead of the current TUF with Noke and Cote as the coaches
dont know how much truth to this there is but it would make sense. bendo cant get a title shot right now with pettis having beaten him twice and it may be premature to give melendez another title shot which would be 2 in only 3 ufc appearances.

RUMOR: UFC looking at Pettis/Aldo as main event for July 4th weekend in Vegas. Lightweight Title. Aldo vacates, moves up to 155.

i would't doubt it. Aldo's been having trouble making weight lately, and it doesn't sound like Dana white is too happy with henderson's style, and would rather reward finishers. melendez almost lost to diego, and you for sure can't nate diaz a shot (no matter how much he b*tches).

that said, it all assumes aldo wins on saturday, i haven't had a chance to see ricardo lamas fight. does he have a shot against Aldo?

a lot of "convenient coincidences" happen in the UFC, just saying. but TBH it doesn't bother me too much actually...........

Man, I really want Pettis vs Aldo but can I get Nate Diaz vs Pettis first. I don't care if Nate has not earned a shot, that s**t would be entertaining however long it lasts.
