I duno about you but I like watching Stann fight. Balls out right away trying to either put someone away or get ktfod. Nasty power, hands are down, you can just see it coming for this guy lol Cantwell has some crafty subs for a big guy. Not the greatest fight but definitely wont go to a decision, you know.

Oh absolutely. He's great against stand up only people like his fight against the bald nazi biker Marshall, but Krzy didn't look to be in ANY trouble in the octo with Stann. Like either Krzy is that good (and I'm not ruling that out yet, he looks pretty promising) or Stann is not UFC material like he was WEC. If the Robot keeps it stand up like the previous fight it will be an exciting fight.
I just rewatched the Ander/Hendo fight this morning and I don't know if Dan could beat Anderson in a rematch but I'd love to see that again. Dan was putting the spurs to him for a few minutes.

i like stann and cantwell both. both good guys i wish they would both step it up tho.
hendo vs anderson II would be better then some of this oponents. 205 will be the test vs griffin. if griffin gets a decision tho ill be so freakin mad.
07-27-2009 06:58 PM
yeah but for Griffin to make it a decision in his favor, he'd have to earn that shet. that would be something to see..
07-27-2009 08:47 PM
yeah i hope he brings it. i just hope it doesnt suck.

stann is from my area so i should suport him, but in all reality he not a fighter who will make much noise in the ufc, he has knockout power but he is sooo one dimensional, just a big guy who thought he was a marine and could fight, it's all a punchers chance with him and in the ufc with talented guys it won't fair to well
07-28-2009 12:51 AM
yeah i agree hes an ok wrestler and not a good striker just good power and heart. i hope he wins some tho i got to support the marines.

I think Forrest's main skill is eating shots and coming back even harder, and Anderson hasnt really fought a guy like that before. If anyone should beat him I think Forrest has the size and the toughness, but does he have the technique is the question.
07-28-2009 08:39 PM
How much of a stud would he be to hand Anderson a defeat. I'd go nuts I tell ya

I wish I had more posts on this board because then I'd just be able to paste it, but Five Knuckles is reporting that a) Fedor and the UFC are finalizing a deal and b) Fedor Vs. Brock might happen at 103.

I saw that as well, but it makes me wonder: if that is true, then why does Fedor have a press conference scheduled for Wednesday? This is two days prior to Dana's supposed announcement, so it makes me wonder; also, 103 seems a quick turnaround for a champion. The usual wait period is four events. Meh, we will see!

As we reported just a few hours ago, a source close to world consensus number one heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko confirmed, to FiveKnuckles.com, a recent LA Times report stating that Emelianenko was set to sign with the UFC and was holding preliminary talks with the organization about facing UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 103.
Noted MMA Insider, Josh Gross of SI.com, spoke recently with Emelianenko's M-1 Global associate Apy Echteld who flatly denied that a deal was imminent.
"I can give you a guarantee it's not accurate," Apy Echteld of M-1 Global told SI.com.
Sources at both the LA Times and FiveKnuckles.com have confirmed that negotiations have indeed taken place between the two sides, a fact echoed by Echteld himself, but it's the nature of these negotiations which appear to be at odds.
Emelianenko is set to hold a press conference tomorrow to elaborate further on his future plans and where he'll end up in the wake of Afflictions demise. The press conference will hopefully shed light on the conflicting reports.
FiveKnuckles.com will bring you the very latest as this story continues to develop.

According to a recent report from The Sun, Friday’s Dana White announcement will be slightly more hairstyle than it is threesome, at least for those of us in the US of A. The UK news outlet reports that the UFC will announce a deal with the newly formed UK ESPN channel to broadcast events across the pond, essentially replacing the deal the UFC had with the now-defunct Setanta Sports. The UK ESPN channel is reportedly set to launch on August 3, and they could turn right around and broadcast UFC 101 on August 8.

I have also heard that Hendo/Franklin II might not happen, that Belfort might get involved somewhere as he is going to be picked up shortly

Reports out of Brazil have former Affliction: "Trilogy" combatant Vitor Belfort taking on the well traveled Moise Rimbon at Bitetti Combat in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Sept. 12.
If true the news puts rumors of Belfort's impending UFC signing in jeopardy.

I read that Dan Lauzon is supposedly going to the UFC and maybe fighting in 103. This guy is a pud. His last fight IMO was far from interesting.
