    Minakov fights today, such little fanfare since he's fighting in Russia against Tony Johnson, but goddamn I think he thrashes everybody in this tourney and maybe it's "big fish, small pond" syndrome but buddy's undefeated and has beaten a bunch of solid names and HW is always rock 'em sock 'em robots so there's more potential for varied outcomes, but I'm on his hype train and would love to see him fighting bigger names.

    Are they waiting for the first round to play out before announcing alternates?

    I like the idea of the grand prix,

    Just don't think it's practical.

    it really isn't. it's not a grand prix, it's a ladder. Which is the way it should be for title contention. but a tournament is just something they can't do anymore because guys can't fight in one night or really close together.

    I just think they should call it what it is, and this was a disaster idea from the jump. bring in a shitload of guys way out of prime, overweight and 50% of their speed and expect highlights?

    Rampage had man boobs for shit sakes.

    having said that. a few things are really clear to me after that event.


    Rory is one bad mother fucker just like everyone knew he was, but secondly, I think Lima proved beyond a doubt he's top 5 globally, including the UFC.

    I hate that theze guys can't fight each other. i want to see lima in the UFC

    and really, it's disgusting that the UFC let rory go because they didn't think he could draw. he's definitely a contender for the best in the division across any org. he belongs in the UFC.

    Why in the fuck would you choose to have fat rampage in your HW title tourney over a legit HW on a 5 fight win streak??? If the choice had to be made why go with fat rampage? Fat rampage is a loser.

    Sonnen/kongo would have been much more interesting.
