    Not interested in seeing Faber get a title shot again.

    All four of these guys were pretty entertaining at the press conference, not necessarily in a good way.

    Dominick apologizing to the fans for making them listen to Faber's shit talk was golden!

    Luke and Chris are starting off good promoting their rematch. Luke looked frustrated with Chris's claims of him being a playboy a little to quick.

    I am, just because it's probably his last run.

    Faber wont have nothing for Dominick who will be much faster and more technical.

    I've rooted against him a fair amount, but I like him in terms of his personality, skill set, and dedication. He looked bad in his last couple, and I think he may be more suited toward taking big fights of lesser consequence. What does he do after this, if he loses? That said, he hasn't taken a lot of punishment and has much more reason to continue than a lot of aging fighters, see Diego Sanchez. I would have rather have seen him face Dillashaw.

    That's what everyone said the first time and he almost knocked Cruz out.

    I would have too, but the only reason people don't want to see him fight for the title is because of who he is what he has accomplished. If he was a lesser name fighter with the same record over the same fighters it would still make sense, in terms of contention.

    Granted the first time Faber choked out Cruz. And in their second fight, dropped Cruz at least twice and I had Faber winning a 48-47 decision.

    Ok ass face is the only candidate at the moment. I don't have a problem with the trilogy fight. But if Faber loses, he's gotta be out of chances right?

    Out of chances makes it sound like he hasn't worked his way back to each of those shots - So, short answer (hah): no. If he works his way back up the ladder to top contender status, he'll deserve the top contender shot.

    :rip:

    Big fan of Dominick and Urijah, so. I'm really looking forward to it.

    What the hell is wrong with being a playboy?

    Totally not interested in seeing the rematch. Weidman lost decisively. There are other matches to be made in the division. Goddamn instant title shot rematches.

    I guess it was a timing thing with Jacare & Vitor booked to fight & Yoel in limbo. No way Chris deserved an immediate re-match, not with the way he got handled first time round. I think the UFC is cashing in on teh Chris while he still has high name recognition/value.

    I thought the fight was pretty competitive up until the 'wheel kick'. Both of them were blowing pretty hard (which i thought was due to the iv ban) and both of them had injuries/illness that didnt come to light until after the fight. Its not the most egregious instant rematch we've seen i dont think.

    Weidman has it in him to take Rockhold.

    I am in agreement on each point. It should be a spectacular fight.

    Middleweight is possibly my favourite division at the moment. Any one of the top 10 could beat each other on any given night. I rate Rockhold but i dont think he's head-and-shoulders above everyone else. I think we might see the belt change hands fairly frequently over the next few years.

    I'll be rooting for Cruz and Weidman, but I wouldn't be upset if Faber and/or Luke won; just hoping for some good wars.

    Whenever an ex-champ gets an unjustified instant rematch, I just really want to see them lose.
