I'm not really pumped about UFC 62 and if I watch Pride it'll be by myself. All of my friends are TUFers or guys that occassionally watch boxing and K1 and are just getting into MMA...I really wish there was more exposure here for Pride. I'm assuming the Pride event is available on PPV, right? I've never really checked it out b/c I'm not going to pay $40 to watch something by myself.
EDIT: I just saw that Nick Diaz will be replacing Alves on Saturday due to illness. I think that fight has a lot of potential!...oh yeah, he'll be fighting Neer for those that don't know.

That's awesome...I totally forgot about that. I love the Bushido format too!

Yeah it's free unless you live in Chicago where there is no FSN.

I just want to see Chris Brennan and Dan Henderson...I didn't even know Brennan was still around (haven't really looked for him either though). Now that I think about it though, the UFC card doesn't look too bad. I can't imagine how the Bonnar/Griffin match will go. And what IF Sobral pulls off the upset?

62 is really this weekend? Wow, shows you how dead on this card I am. For most Pride and some UFC's I usually count down the days from 2 or 3 weeks out. Hopefully the Bushido will be good. With the addition of commercials I doubt we'll see more then half the fights. UFC has really gone downhill, they consistently have 3 or 4 *****y fights on each card!

I will have to agree. I think that they are going about getting the sport mainstream in the wrong way. They should have more of the smaller names fight on Spike and show those more often (of course sprinkling some big names in the programming here and there). In turn, limiting the big PPVs to a lesser frequency, but with better matches. That being said, I will probably still get the PPV this weekend b/c all of my friends are cheap bastards and have come to expect it.Originally Posted by Alexander

I'm guessing that was in reference to what said about the UFC. That probably is a bad idea. Maybe my idea was coming completely from the wrong angle (Vince McMahon style. haha)...I've just been frustrated with some of the PPVs this year, but I guess that is bound to happen.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone

Oh, ha ha...I thought it was some sort of eye rolling at my post. LOL. It's all good.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone

I am really excited about the Pride card, but I prefer Pride much more over UFC.
I would like to see the Babalu vs Liddell fight.

It's on the DVR...I'll have to watch it as soon as the wife turns off Oxygen...ugh...What do you think will come of the Bonnar/Griffin fight?
08-23-2006, 06:41 PM
I feel the same way. These guys are both brawlers, so I think they'll still be swinging for the fences. Griffin probably has improved more, but Bonnar has nothing to lose.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone
I think the Diaz/Neer fight will be a good brawl too.

For anyone that saw the WWGP, I would say all of the favorites won except for the tournament favorite. How Henderson came out with such a lackluster effort is beyond me.

How was it though? I had to go to the inlaws' place for dinner and forgot to record it. Did they cut a lot of the card out or did they show a decent number of the matches?

Not sure what you mean by over at Avant...? I assume it's another forum, but I'm not familiar with it. I would love to get set up though. I'm on some other obscure MMA P2P sites, but the quality is very poor.
EDIT: ADUH!!! I Just figured out what you meant...thanks. I'll get set up over there and PM you. I didn't realize they had a forum.

I had to find the fights online because FSN thought more people would watch the Rangers-A's game. I think it will be on again at 7 on Tuesday.Originally Posted by stxnas

I have my DVR setup to record tomorrow night. Thanks for the heads up Rodja.

You are the man Rogue Drone. That site has been saved in my favorites for months now, but it always says that the forum is full when I try to sign up. Believe it or not I tried tonight around 6pm. Thanks again. I feel like Christmas came early!

You might want to check your area; mine is FSN Southwest so I am not sure what the other stations are planning.Originally Posted by stxnas
