Personally, I love watching Ronda maul people and Cat should at least last longer than Davis. Paying full price would be stupid, but I'll happily pay my $5 cover to watch it at a bar.

*waddle waddle*

I'm still into Kid fighting. In all of Kid's UFC losses he showed flashes of brilliance and so he might have a nice comeback win similar to Akiyama. If he's still as fast as he was 3 years ago then he's no easy fight at all. His distance covering was something special.

Gleison Tibau has had good fights before. I don't think you should give up on Gleison/Ferguson yet. """sleeper""" candidate for Fight of the Night award.

Michael Johnson has 3 finishes in 8 wins, and he knocked Tibau out.

Tony Ferguson has 5 finishes in 7.

Ferguson will finish Tibau.

I coulda sworn I read somewhere before his last fight that he's shed a little muscle to make the cut easier, but I can't seem to find the article now.

Yeah. Gleison could have shrunk because he is getting older and cutting does become harder on the body so dropping some muscle would make sense... but he also has always talked about how easy the cut was to do and with enhanced drug testing looming it's a bit of a coincidence.

UFC in late 2015/2016 is going to be cool.

He wasn't subject to out of competition testing for that fight. I doubt for this fight either.

He's moving up on the cards though and if he fucks around and wins this fight he will be in a fight that'll be the target for OOC testing. Guaranteed. If that's the case then I applaud Gleison + camp for doing the responsible thing and getting a head start on getting off drugs, but since that's a hosed up thing to say until he's proven guilty I'll just assume he's getting old and he's had a lot of trips of cutting 30+ pounds so it might be the end of the Joe Rogan's Favorite Weight Cutting Example era.

i am the only person that was impressed by tibau's last performance and the 'one round of gas' tibau is simply no longer true. tibau has gotten better in literally every facet. i think people aren't seeing it because it's a loving insane thought that he waited till now to get good
