    I was sort of sticking up for you, so I don't know why you got all butt hurt.

When you're still in the top-5 after those losses, you are by no means "on the way down."
    ehhh we'll just have to agree to disagree....if he wasnt on the way down they wouldnt have given him howard, someone the majority of people havent even heard of or seen fight....

    Jon Fitch fought Chris Wilson before getting a title shot at GSP and has since faced Ben Saunders, Mike Pierce, Akihiro Gono, and Paulo Thiago before fighting Thiago Alves. There really aren't many compelling matchups at WW since it's so top heavy and since the AKA guys won't fight each other. It still boggles my mind that Dan Hardy even got a title shot considering he had two wins via split decision, a KO over a journeyman, and then a decision against a fringe top-15 WW.

    i agree...there are not any compelling matchups for gsp...the aka guys are ****heads for not fighting each other...i understand it, but they are supposed to be professional athletes...anyways...im gonna go watch the wec card a dvr'ed tonight...henderson/pettis should be spectacular

    When you've trained with someone for that long, you form a bond. On one hand I can see where they're coming from because I could never fight any of my regular training partners. However, my purse is not even 1/50th of theirs...
