Tim Kennedy: My New Year's resolutions are as follows: 1st. Exterminate poachers, and those that facilitate human trafficking. 2nd. Destroy some world champions and loudmouths i.e. Chael Sonnen at Metamoris. 3rd. Ride my motorcycle more, drink more brown booze and enjoy barbeque on occasion.

I havent had a plrecription for my eyes in years so the other day I went and got a new one and it hasnt changed. The doctor was like why havent you seen us in 4 years? I told them im scared of op tomietris when the air shoots into your eyes and dilation. They told me my eyes cold get worse....

Waking up to hear that the Matt Brown vs Tarec Saffedine fight is off was pretty disappointing. Someone on bloodyelbow then commented that Donald Cerrone can win and fight him and like 20 other people followed up until someone was like "you idiots he is in a different weight class). I think it would be funny to see Uriah Hall get to fight Matt Brown but obviously the best possible solution is to give Uriah Hall to Brandon Thatch opponent and put Thatch vs Brown as probably one of the most violent fights of ever.

In reality we will probably get matt brown vs someone who has no business being with him in the cage.

Welp, sorry took to many pain killers and got my P's and Q's mixed up. Yeah he is a middleweight but read that Costa was out of that fight so Hall needs an opponent.

Either way Brown vs Thatch would be awesome although Stephen Thompson vs Thatch is a pretty good fight. I just want to see Thatch fight and I also want to see Matt Brown get a chance at Lawler again. 2014 was a really good year for both of them but seeing Brown lose was pretty tough since he is one of the coolest fighters in the division.

Additionally looks like Dana White has confirmed Conor is fighting Aldo if he beats Siver. Poor Frankie.

Actually despite being an annoying bitch I like when Jones fights scrubs and then tosses them around and then murders them with GNP, so I guess what I'm saying is I can't wait till he debuts in OneFC

Rematch with Vera but instead of using the elbows to break the orbital bone he will use soccer kicks to the head.

I enjoy watching Jon Jones fight because he's good at it but as a man he's an unlikable dork.

The only time I really had any emotion invested in JJ's opposition was that time Chael Sonnen was supposed to fight him but then backstage during warm ups he slowly faded into the Aether while giving heartfelt goodbyes to his family and friends, never to be seen again except for that one time when him and Shogun appeared as ghostly apparitions in the cage during a break and had a good fight.

I don't like watching Jon Jones fight because his game is built on dangerous cheating that stifles everyone's stand up who isn't also freakishly long (all of LHW but Gus). Many more fighters would have highlight reels of impressive finishes if they had freakish arms that they poked their opponents with at will. It's easier to land a spinning elbow on someone who's timing has been put off and their vision obscured.
