      someone tweeted an interesting point:

      Jones has beaten 4 former LHW champs, pretty handily too, where Anderson has not beaten a former champ other than Franklin, and that was years ago. What you all say about this in terms of P4P rankings, etc?

      You also have to figure in the fact that the middle weight belt has been held by one person for a long time. The LHW belt has been bouncing around for a long time. How long did each of the guys that JJB beat hold on to the belt? did they successfully defend it? LHW is a much deeper pool the the MW class.

      The only way to really find out is to have them fight!

      That's AWESOME!!!

      My two boys (7 & 5) are in Taekwondo since October last year and the Dojang has a special where the third student is free. So I'm the third one and I feel the same way! My boys are camo-belt and I'm one color behind at yellow, they like to tease me that they are at a higher belt level.

      First of all, Vitor and Forrest were both former UFC champions as well.

      Secondly, pound for pound arguments are purely opinion based, and therefore, completely irrelevant.

      Anderson has a body of work you have to look at... How EASILY he went through a string of top-level contenders. Jones has looked good, but to call him the best fighter in the world after only a few years in the sport is pre-mature. Dude is well on his way to stardom, but who knows what's going to happen with him? For all you know, a year from now, he may have a falling-out with his current camp, his wife may find out he's been cheating on her, and he falls into the same patterns of discipline Mike Tyson did after meeting Don King.

      Anderson managed to overcome all those obstacles, and has no plans of deviating from a near-perfect UFC career. Time will tell if Jon Jones can do the same thing.

      If stann decides to stand and trade I'd say either guy has a 50/50 shot.

      Huge test for Lombard.

      Bader v Machida for UFC on Fox 4
      Bisping vs. Boetsch for UFC 149

      So now Dunham and Gonzaga are out at 146.

      So Big Country fights Dave Herman and Edson Barboza fights Jamie Varner.

      Big Country is on the losing end of that dropout from GG.

      Varner might literally die fighting Barboza.

      Literal losing end? As in you think he's going to lose? Or losing end as in his caliber of opponents has been dropping?

      I think Nelson was going to beat GG, now I think he's not going to beat Herman. He got the shaft is what I was saying.

      I think Diaz is going to get wrestlef%cked for the entire fight.

      I'm shooting a local Org so I'm going to miss the fights, kinda bummed about that. If I wasn't working I was going to head up to Newark and hang out with Steve and Zeus, maybe next time.

      Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller ud
      Johny Hendricks vs. Josh Koscheck KO
      Alan Belcher vs. Rousimar Palhares sub
      Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson KO

      Hendrix has a nasty left hook that I think will find Kosh's chin, if he can put together some combos.

      Barry and Johnson is a a crap shoot if you ask me, but I want Barry to win so im going with him.

      Belcher is no slouch on the mat but Paul Harris will get him just like hes got everyone else.

      Miller via smuthering.

      lol we suck at this....

      We barely got one right!

      Hendricks really needs to learn to throw more than Right, Left, one two punches. I dont think I saw one set of punches that wasn't ended with a left hook. Way to predictable to fight GSP at this point. He makes you move your head with his right, then tries to catch you off balance with the left.

      Very impressed by Diaz. Hope that same Nate shows up for his title fight.

      Poor Pat Barry 5 of his last 8 have been losses.

      and I think the biggest accomplishment of last night was Alan Belcher! Belcher really went into the lions den against Paul Harris. That was probably one of the best back and forth exchanges Ive seen on the ground in a long time!

      Good night of fights. Bummer for Barry, I'm not necessarily surprised, but still bummed. I though Kos might have picked up the W with RD3, but guess not. Was really surprised by the Paul Harris fight. Didn't really like Belcher talking himself up like that. Bet he pissed off a lot of people stating he was the best on the ground and wanted a shot. Still gotta beat Stann and Sonnen first.

      Hells yes to Diaz! Rumor has it that Frank won't be ready in August for the fight. Maybe Frankie will have to wait and Diaz will get the shot a little early.

      I watched maybe 2 episodes. Friday nights are not a good night for that show and I see it going back to mid-week next season.
