Just saw that.  Pretty funny since Sonnen was ripping Silva up one side and down the other about PED's.

 

It is always going to be a problem.  Cheating will always be a part of sports, you just have to do as much due dilligence as possible.

Aaaaand Sonnen is retiring. Nice.

UFC has a lack of big drawing power right now. It's just Rousey and Jones, and a bunch of people nobody outside of UFC fans care about at all.

I think Johnny Hendricks can be a big draw.  Problem is the 170 weight class is pretty weak.

 

But yeah, most of the popular guys are beyond their prime.

 

I am thinking Sonnen didn't really want to do this fight.  He got the shit kicked outta him his last couple fights.

 

They need someone to come out of nowhere and just dominate.

Deadspin did an article leading up to the fight following him around. I guess he preaches being a devout Christian and good man, but privately is a very different person.

Yeah, he is all public persona.  In reality he isn't very smart.  Certainly doesn't live the life he preaches about.  Some people close to him saying he has a pretty bad drug problem.  If true I hope he fixes it, dude is extremely talented.

Prelims were cool. Dude threw out flying knee to open a fight then dropped the other dude in 8 seconds. Some Russian missed with a spin kick and got caught which looked brutal.

Pretty cool it's on Fox. Probably going to miss the rest because of an event.

Some Swede just got destroyed by a right and crumpled to start the main card.

Time to dust off this thread.  Quite a few good fights last night.  As usual, Cormier surprised me and did the opposite of what I expected.  The Arlovski/Brown fight was why I like the heavyweights, great stuff.  I expected Belfort to do a lot better and I need to get over underestimating Weidman.  Cerrone's fight was typical Cerrone - technically solid but not too exciting to watch. 

 

Looking forward to the Aldo/McGregor fight and hoping Aldo whips his ass.

Weidman is really good.  Belfort is way past his prime.  I thought Cormier was going to get killed and of course he won.

 

I agree about the heavyweight fight.  That was awesome.
