Anyone watching? So happy for Big Nog and to see Sliva and Little Nog in tears happy for their brother. f**king earned that win with a plate in his arm.
That was weak! Nice knee from Silva, but it sucks it was over so quick.

Lol yep. Silva is like Neo from the Matrix dodging punches but I was hoping Bonner would of put up more of a fight. Def didn't think he would take a knee to the solar plex. I remember I was going to be a traveler, but then I took a knee to the solar plex.

Props to Bonner for taking the fight to Silva, though. Not a lot of fighters would get in Silva's face and just start swinging like a wildman. Silva was just taking those shots too. The high knee to the chest was INCREDIBLE. To have that knock down Bonner is quite an accomplishment considering how tough the guy is.

And props go out to Big Nog. Herman was annoying before the fight basically talking s**t about BJJ. Glad Nog made him tap with the arm bar.

Glover Texeira could be a monster challenge at 205. He just needs to put his hands up and not take fighters lightly.

Erik Silva vs. Jon Fitch was surprisingly good. I thought Fitch was gonna make it boring.
He didn't even give a s**t

Brazilians are too affectionate

"I'd be interested in a TUF season in the future, but it'd take the right opponent. As far as Daniel Cormier saying he wants to coach against me, he would want that, wouldn't he? He's relatively unknown, I want to do it when the fans are aware of both guys, and when it's spunky and when it raises a lot of viewers. I'm not here to raise his stock."

UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, recently sat down with ESPN to conduct an interview.
...
Cormier, the Strikeforce HW Grand Prix champion, has been calling out Jon Jones for months and most recently called for a coaching slot opposite the UFC champ on TUF.


Funny that you posted that article, feeeever. Dana White just announced that Jon Jones would be coaching the next season of TUF against..................CHAEL SONNEN. Shooting will start at the end of the month with the fight being held in April. It'll be a little weird if this fight still happens and Sonnen loses to Forrest Griffin.

Match doesn't make any sense besides being a grudge match, but Dana has listened to the fans that say they want to see Sonnen get destroyed. For me, I'm 50/50 on the fight. On one side, I say let the fight happen since there really isn't a challenge for Jones at that time early in 2013 (Shogun/Gustaffson and Henderson/Machida all happen late 2012 or early 2013). On the other side, the match won't make any sense if Sonnen loses to Griffin.

yeah if he loses to Forrest (again) it could be a biggest disaster than UFC151............ ok maybe not that bad.

from a business standpoint, i'm wondering if they should cancel/replace that fight just in case. Griffin/Vitor or something........
