Cards every week this month, including a Japan card so you know it's gonna be full of freakshows and weird poo poo. Hopefully Mark Hunt vs Roy turns out like we all hope it will, with Mark Hunt submitting him with that patented armbar. Also Eddie Alvarez vs Cerrone and MMMDMMJ finishing up the month should make it end pretty well.

Important champions -


Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez


Light Heavyweight Champion Jon "Bones" Jones


Middleweight Champion Chris "The All-American" Weidman


Welterweight Champion Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks


Lightweight Champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis


Featherweight Champion Jose "Scarface" Aldo


Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw


Flyweight Champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson


Women's Bantamweight Champion "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey

It's only been a month since Brown vs Lawler but we went an entire month with barely any significant fun fights and it feels so good to finally have A Jacare match, Overeem match, Hunt match, Gomi match and Cerrone match all in one month. We made it.

Getting used to that being the case with champions getting injured.

There must be some statistics out there showing the increase in injuries and failing weight cute since the UFC started raising their steroid testing, but it's hard to tell when and what's tests they started doing as they don't seem to be very open with it

I think when you're a contender you're more likely to suck up an injury and keep your shot while as a champ you'd rather be 100% and keep your title

If tiny welterweight Melvin Manheof can turn Hunto's lights out, then I'm pretty sure Roy "Big stinkyhole" Nelson can do the same. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst

outside of just wanting Gil to be active, I don't see why this would annoy you. Tony has been injured all year and LW has been in a strange spot in the interim

mark hunt's track record for getting kicked in the head by cro cop is to either shrug it off or go down on his rear end for a second before immediately getting up. manhoef is a complete freak.

manhoef hits like a truck, mark hunt lept face first into a shot with his eyes closed, and hunt no longer fights like that. hunt's chin seems to no longer be invincible, but his defense is very very good. i believe

Fighters in the same weight class calling out Bisping is old hat. I mean, even Urijah Faber has called out DJ MikeyB

I yearn for the day when a female fighter throws out the Bisping jab.

Before Touchy Fili pulled out, I was at least partially excited for every fight on Friday's card.

Middleweight Ronaldo Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi
Heavyweight Alistair Overeem vs. Ben Rothwell
Heavyweight Matt Mitrione vs. Derrick Lewis
Lightweight Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Chiesa
Featherweight Nik Lentz vs. Charles Oliveira
Flyweight John Moraga vs. Justin Scoggins
Lightweight Al Iaquinta vs. Rodrigo Damm
Middleweight Rafael Natal vs. Chris Camozzi
Bantamweight Tateki Matsuda vs. Chris Beal
Featherweight Sean Soriano vs. Chas Skelly

I can't believe they didn't pull any of these fights off for the PPV the other night. Other than the lowest fight, every fight has the potential to be either funny as gently caress or a really good fight (Iaquinta/Damm may be bad but we'll at least get to hear Serra screaming). Part of me knows though that whenever a card looks really good it usually ends up being poo poo and vice versa.

question about fight pass; is there any way to stay logged in on the app or browser (Firefox)? I keep getting logged out after every session. cheers.

The only thing bad about Al Iaquinta fights are when he does something stupid, but other than that he's the man and everyone should be jazzed up for Raging Al.

Yeah but he's got Jesus and there are a lot of Polynesian kids for him to mentor in punching people so he will have purpose after he hangs it up. I mean it'll probably be Rocky and boozy for a minute but I think he'll be ok
