oh s**t! LETS GO CUB!!!!

frankie gonna school him

most likely. still. GO CUB!

kicks to the legs and body, thats how you beat frankie, use the ben henderson game plan. if you're gonna box with him he's too quick he gets in and out before you can really hit him cleanly.
lol FAIL

UFC ~"We were made aware that newly-signed UFC competitor Joe Riggs was involved in an unfortunate accident last night. While cleaning his permitted firearm (a pistol), the gun discharged, injuring his hand and upper thigh. Riggs was transported to a nearby hospital in Arizona where he is being treated by physicians. We wish Joe a speedy recovery."

i guess it depends how the dos anjos fight goes, but maybe green, michael johnson, myles jury is in the top 10 and undefeated

Johnson would be fine but I think it would be a little too soon for Jury to take on Bendo. That's a big leap up from Gomi and Sanchez.



yeah while i agree its a big leap, i get the feeling bendo isnt loved by dana and they're going to use him as a stepping stone to potentially create new stars by making a name off of his name. thats why i see jury as a potential fight after dos anjos.

I agree about Bendo, think that Dana doesn't like his style in the cage, he grinds guys out but rarely seems to finish. Jury is someone Dana seems to like quite a bit and I can see him being protected from matchups with grinders like Bendo, instead being given someone like Barboza or even Cerrone.

i think you guys might be selling Smooth a little short. he isn't as aggressive as a Cerrone or Pettis, but he does jump on opportunities in the cage. he's a defensive fighter and a great wrestler.

i think a big reason why he has so many decisions in the UFC is because of the level of competition. guys like Edgar, Melendez, Diaz, Guida, Miller all have great heart and have not been finished often
looks like it's official!!

Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz on January 31st

He is a tremendous fighter and seemingly could beat everyone in the division on any given night, but his style is rather boring.

bendo is my guy, my fav fighter in the game, i just feel dana doesnt like him. to me he is the best 155'er in the game and 1 guy just has his number. pettis is GREAT but doesnt have bendos durability to keep up a hectic schedule that the #1 fighter demands.

Will da Spidah throw any leg kicks? That is the question to ask. Then again he fancies himself as a legit boxer. Remember his attempt to box Roy Jones Jr.? And boxing of course is a huge part of Nick's game.

Wtf -- I've never owned a gun but I do know one of the main rules -- make sure yo gun is empty before you clean it.
