    Default Ufc 94

    GSP vs Penn
    Lyoto Machida Vs. Thiago Silva
    Stephan Bonnar Vs. Jon Jones
    Karo Parisyan Vs. Dong Hyun Kim
    Nate Diaz Vs. Clay Guida

    The last two will be good fights, don't know about the rest.
    GSP will stop Penn in their rematch.
    I'll get back to you on the rest.

    I am looking forward to the BJ-GSP fight. I like both fighters but George is my fav. I think they both can win it but I have to give the edge to GSP, he is just too good right now.

    Jan 31st, can't wait!

    UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs Penn Part 1
    On Spike Jan 14 2009 10:00pm
    I think there are 3 parts.
    Like the HBO series 24/7, it follows the fighters the last weeks leading up to the fight.

    Thanks fo rthe reminder, Jack. I almost forgot about the Primetime specials.

    Off topic slightly: We are considering going to Ohio for UFC 96, but that card sure is looking weak so far. A few interesting fights, but no sign of a legitimate main event yet.

    Here's an early presser.
    Silva vs Machida should be a good fight as well, someones O has gotta go.
    Nice......

    I watched that special last night and I gotta say I like BJ Penn a little less after it. The most annoying part of it was when he said "I am going to fight to the death, I'm ready to die in there, I am going to try to kill you George"

    I just thought it was a ridiculous thing to say...but its pre-fight banter so it is what it is...

    I watched as well.
    GSP looked fantasic.......I mean fantastic!
    Penn can say what he wants, he ain't beating him.
    I would say we are about to see the best GSP yet.
    What's with Dana White checking up on BJ's training progress?
    That doesn't sound good, no one is that naturally gifted!
    ......just more hype?

    In a lot of ways I don't think this should be a title fight. It should have been billed as a "super fight" instead. Especially since BJ lost his last two WW fights. Not that I don't think George can/will win the fight but if he doesn't it screws up the LW division.

    I was reading that IF BJ wins then Thiago Alves gets a title shot in spring sometime. BJ would have to stay at 170ish to prep for that fight. That means no LW title shot for anyone till late 09. Not the best situation for the contenders in that division.

    I actually would love a GSP Thiago fight, more in some ways that the BJ fight. But I am still pumped about this one as well. If GSP wins I get the Alves match up as well so that would be a bonus.

    I agree.
    You don't get the Championship until you are successful defending it?
    You would be an Interim Champ until the successful defense.
    And, what about mandatories?
    Part of the problem is that UFC fighters are under contract with the UFC, not free agents.
    Dana White is Don King and Jose Sulaiman.
    He owns the fighters and the WBA, WBC and the IBF.
    Love the sport.......but this is a big issue, to me.
    Let promoters have it and let the fighters be free agents.
    It would create something a lot different than what we have at present.

    I watched episode two and again I find it so hard to keep liking BJ. I found myself hoping GSP would knock him out early just to shut him up.

    Part of me wants it to be a 5 rounder but a quick destructive knock out or forcing BJ to tap would be just as good at this point.

    Good article. I have read a few fight breakdowns over the last few days and they all are pretty much in line with this one. If it ends early its BJ t it ends late or goes to the judges its George.

    I actually watched an interview on Sportsnet today and BJ was a lot more likable. Though I still want George to make a point I don't mind if it is a long fight rather than a short one with George KOing BJ.

    Rumor has it that GSP cut over 15 lbs. to weigh in.
    It would be interesting to get him on a scale before the fight.
    It has to be difficult to train that hard and not increase your mass.
    As a result fighters end up in higher weight divisons.
    Can you say, Silva vs GSP?
    It a natural, unless Silva moves up first.
    If, GSP vs Penn is huge....GSP vs Silva would be gargantuan.
    Of course, he has to beat Penn first....I know one at a time.
    GSP wins in third round by referee stoppage.
    BJ will pay for the bi tch remark!
