Yeah, he got screwed out of his title shot, but if he wins they will be out of excuses. Outside of maybe Jon Jones, nobody has a more impressive 3 fight streak than Hendricks.

Good, because he's an impressive fighter. To do that to Kampmann was incredible.

You guys probably already talked about it to death before, but what's going to happen with Jones after his win over Hendo? Cormier? All assuming that Silva and he don't agree on a fight even though that's what everyone wants to see.

I don't think Jon Jones is going to move to HWT any time soon. Supposedly the weight cut is not an issue for him, and if he's not willing to risk his status to fight Anderson, I doubt he'll risk it to move up.

At LHW he's still got a handful of immediate fights:

Sonnen ( Rolling Eyes )
Winner of Dan Henderson vs Machida (I think the loser will either move to 185 or retire)
Gustafsson
Rashad
Glover Teixeira
Phil Davis

And then a handful of guys that could string together a few wins and emerge, like Feijao, Thiago Silva, Ryan Bader, Little Nog. At this point, new talent could be making its way up.

^^^ Yea, you can't predict that far ahead. You also never know with injuries, it could keep a dude out for a year. We all thought GSP was done cleaning up, and then like 3 contenders popped up out of nowhere.

I know some of you guys don't like him but Josh Barnett is UFC bound. Personally, I love the guy. He's a better interview than Chael Sonnen and he trolls to the max.

Always nice when a legit fighter steps up on short notice. (Or did he already have a fight?)


Anybody else watching Bellator tonight? I'm a fan of both Chandler and Hawn, and the fight has the makings of something special with the combnation of power and TDD shared between the two.

Stepped in, IIRC.

Watched the prelims and they were pretty good. The card looks solid as well.

I Cant wait for this Fox card next week, Cowboy vs Pettis FOTY potential, with Glover vs Rampage and then Dodson and Mighty Mouse, potential Card of the year and its the 2nd one of the year!

Bellator was good last night, although the timespot was kinda ridiculous. Hopefully they get good ratings and that improves.
