Current Poll is : Mike Brown vs Urijah Faber for WEC 41.
I voted for Urijah Faber. It seemed like Urijah Faber got over active and ran into the right hook during WEC 36. I think both have learned more since then and both will be more defensive. I still believe Faber is technically superior. Regardless we will get one hell of a fight. Feel free to explain why you voted for who.

EDIT: What a great fight... Results have been updated.

Shameless. :) Thanks tho but it looks like this died the moment it was made :(. Oh well if UFC 100 doesn't help spark some interest then this thread is dead. There is 2 championship title fights that night. Even the Henderson vs Bisping fight will be great. I love Hendo but I hope Bisping wins. July 11 can't come soon enough.

BTW. Cowboy Bebop rules and Spike is the man. :)

Yeah.
The Ultimate Fighter Finale is coming up this weekend. Glay Guida Vs Diego Sanches. I really hope Guida demolishes Sanchez but I doubt that.
I hope James Wilks beats DaMarques. Hope Andre beats Ross. I'm pretty sure Diaz will beat Stevenson.

I wouldn't count out Guida so easily. Fight will most likely go to decision.

Looking forward to the TUF finale aswell :) I don't really like Guida or Sanchez, but I mean.. look at Guida - how can you root against that guy?

WOW what a brawl. The TUF finale was excellent. Who knew Wilks would dominate DaMarques. Pearson really showed some heart as well, I had expected Andre to win. The Guida vs Sanchez fight did not dissapoint. Tough fight to decide tho, but Sanchez won even if by a fraction. Even Stevenson suprised me, I had expected Diaz to win.

I thought the scoring for the Andre-Ross fight was off a bit. I had Andre winning the fight, personally. Didn't expect Wilks to kick DaMarques' *** like that, he looked great!
Other than that, it went pretty much like I expected it go.

TUF finale was awesome.

Tugged at the heart strings a little to see Guida not win. But he was awesome and was overcoming everything Sanchez threw at him. He would have won a 5 rounder for sure. He has a ton of heart.

5 Days to go. I'm hoping Lesnar, Bisping, and GSP win. Jon Fitch should win his bout. I hope to see Coleman VS Bonnar (just to see if it's a train wreck or not, I doubt Coleman is back in shape).

OP updated. UFC Results posted in spoiler below, Do not read if you intend to watch.
-Preliminary Card- Winners are on the right of the Vs.
Matt Grice Vs Shannon Guterty (Winner via guillotine choke in the first round)
C.B.Dollaway Vs Tom Lawlor (Winner vis guillotine choke in the first round). Dollaway is a horrible fighter.
TJ Grant Vs Dong Hyun Kim (Winner via unanimous decision)
Jake O'Brien Vs Jon Jones (Winner via guillotine choke in the first round)
Mac Danzing Vs Jim Miller (Winner via unanimous decision)
Stephan Bonnar Vs Mark Coleman (Winner via unanimous decision) That's kinda shocking that Coleman won.
-Main Card-
Alan Belcher Vs Yoshiro Akiyama (Winner via split decision) Glad Sexyama won but I wish he did more Judo throws. For those that don't know Akiyama is a Judo champion and a proficient striker.
Micheal Bisping vs Dan Henderson (Winner via BRUTAL K.O.) Bisping was light on his fight and was active. He just couldn't do much damage. Bisping kept circling to Dan's right. Dan's right hand is his power hand. Connect 1+1 and you get 2 brutal K.O.'s. Dan did a powerful right mashing Bisping's face back, Bisping was out when he hit the ground. Dan did a vicious jumping hammerfist to seal the deal. Dan Henderson said it was an extra hit to shut him up.
Thiago Alves Vs GSP (Winner via unanimous decision). GSP dominated Avles the whole time. He took him down like he weighted nothing, and Alves probably weights maybe a good 10-20 pounds extra(? speculation) after re-hydrating. Anyway GSP pulled his groin in the 3rd round. Still dominated and took down Alves. GSP is just a truly supreme fighter.
Frank Mir Vs Brock Lesnar (Winner via KO (Punches) in round 2). Lesnar dominated and made a blueberry pancake out of Mir's face. Lesnar didn't let Mir transition much if at all. It was all ground and pound. First time he secured his arm as best as possible and slugged his face. The second time it went to the ground Lesnar trapped Mir's hand and controlled the other and proceeded to violate his face. Just pancake....
Paulo Thiago vs Jon Fitch (Winner via unanimous decision). It was a little stupid they put this fight at the end. It was a good fight Jon Fitch controlled most of it. It was a highly technical ground game match.

Great card. It's only downfall was not being able to see all the fights.

UFC 100 was freaking awesome the knock out that Henderson put Bisping through was freaking insane.
And GSP is still the champ!!!
I was so exited when Brock started pounding Frank Mir's face in finally that little smirk of his was destroyed.

Dream 10 happened on Monday. Pretty crazy KO from Marius. Aoki fight was a little dull unfortunately. Still a good card.

Updated the Upcoming events. Can't wait for The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights to start. Looks like an epic season. August and Sept will be great months for MMA.

Man Fedor's team is acting stupid. He is soooooo close to signing with UFC, but dumb things are keeping it from happening.
