      I'm sure there are a couple more in that late 30s+ range that can round out an 8 man tourney.
      Not really a joke, but I agree, its something they should have to let the old mules keep fighting.

      If Ubereem gets a license and fights Bigfoot, who does Big Belly fight? oh wait, he drops to 205 and beats Jones for the LHW strap.

      I want Bones v. Silva.
      I don't care that the UFC would be destroying one of it's biggest legacies. I want it now before Silva gets old.

      Ubereem isn't fighting Bigfoot.
      Ubereem isn't fighting anyone.

      Anderson Silva is not 39, he just turned 37 last week. Not a huge difference but when we're talking about fighters, 2 years is like a lifetime.

      Hendo has nothing for Jones.


      I've said it before, Jon Jones is the new Fedor. and I hate Jon Jones.

      Every fighter that has lost decisively to JBJ are the same kind of fighters who lost decisively to Ando. You cannot give these dudes space... You have to bum-rush them and fight inside or get them on their backs like Chael Sonnen does. If you stand there and get mesmerized by their striking, you're approaching the fight all wrong. Even on the inside, Hendo is going to have a tremendous clinch disadvantage with JBJ's elbows/knees.

      If Hendo wants to give JBJ space to land his right hand, he's making a mistake. In fact, I don't see how Hendo comes close to beating JBJ considering how he's handled even the most elusive of strikers like Rashad and Lyoto. Use Shogun as a banchmark... JBJ finished Shogun so easily, Hendo was on his back hanging on for dear life at the end of their fight, and that's after nearly killing him early on.

      Starting to think that unless Chael beats Ando, you're going to see Ando move up to 205 permanently because he has cleared out the division. He's already considering retirement, why not go out fighting JBJ? You either become the first simultaneous 2 division champion in the UFC or lose your last fight and pass the magic torch to the new MMA kingpin. It seems poetic on paper. There's no shortage of talent in the UFC to fill the void that Ando leaves behind. Sure, they won't be him, but it's Ando vs. Bones would be a tremendous PPV... I can't imagine it doing any less than 10 million viewers.

      I agreed with almost everything you said except this line right here... I dont think you can say Bader, Shogun, Vera, Rampage and Machida are the same kind of fighters as anyone Ando has fought since Hendo... Really Silva had been just killing time until Chael came along. I don't think anyone Silva has fought lately is on the same level as JBJ's competition.

      Well, neither have lost a fight in the UFC (sans JBJ's DQ) - Anderson has been doing it longer and only been in real trouble once. They've both dominated their respective divisions. They're a weight class apart, and Ando has no trouble fighting at 205. Why not have them fight each other, see who the best fighter in the world is?

      I honestly think Ando is scared of the loss. I do understand the passing of the guard, losing to your potential protege, etc, but I think his ego is too big to let him lose.

      If Ando was afraid to lose, he wouldn't be fighting the guy who almost beat him.

      Overeem denied a license - can re-apply in 9 months. Cannot fight anywhere until then.

      Lombard to the UFC = official.

      Chael Sonnen is still the man.

      I got my First Black Stripe last night... Felt good to feel accomplished. Ive been training 8-12 days a month since November (Feb I took off due to bruised ribs). Not as often as I would like but its what I can do. I have been rolling in the morning classes, they are a bit more laid back and relaxing more methodical. All the guys are older, we all work nights and really enjoyed our morning rolls. Yawning and complaining about getting older... I had some big changes at work and Im no longer on the night shifts. Last night I walked into the gym and didnt know anyone, instead of the normal 5-10 guys I roll with there were 20 plus dudes waiting for the mat to clear. A lot of younger guys, full of energy. We did our skills training, some guard passing lessons then 3 rounds. It was so much more intense then what I'm used to. I came out on top all the rounds with multiple subs, even sunk in something I had no idea what it was from north south but it felt right and it worked.

      Everyone in the class though I was a "new guy" no one knew my name, but I gained respect by the end of the session. Everyone lined up so our instructor can give us his final words and go over what we learned. He mentioned he had two promotions to give out. One went to this 16 year old kid, the other to me. Def wasn't expecting it. Never thought much of the stripes, I just like to roll.. But honestly after seeing how hard work pays off at the gym I want to work for more of them!

      Sorry for the blog-like post, I really dont have another outlet for my rants!
