    Junior Silva vs Ricco Rodriguez


    These two will meet at EliteXC's February 16 event. The card so far:

    Kimbo vs Tank
    Junior Silva vs Ricco Rodriguez
    Yves Edwards vs Edson Berto
    Scott Smith vs Kyle Noke
    James Thompson vs Brett Rogers?
    Crazy Horse vs TBA

    Looks like it'll be an entertaining card. Shaw is all over Junior's nuts, thinks he's the best HW in the world. Mostly an attempt to get Dana to bite on a EliteXC vs UFC event. Junior is damn good, not sure about the best. An in shape Ricco will give him trouble, but how likely is that. I'm thinking Tank is getting KO'd in brutal fashion. Yves and Edson should be very competitive. The rest of the card looks good too.

    That card does look solid. I wanna see Aleks take on Junior. The return of JT Looks like Smith got das boot from the UFC.

    I don't know if I'm the only dork that watches "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew. On this thursday's episode Ricco Rodriguez enters the facility. Should be interesting. Not sure exactly when that show taped, but maybe they helped him get his head on straight. An in shape Ricco would spice up the HW division a little. He was robbed against Nog, but he really didn't do that much to deserve the W anyways.

    I hope JT doesn't qualify as a brit thug banger? That would be an interesting fight. All a matter of if Aleks could stay on his feet. He kind of has GG disease when he gets on the ground, like "**** it, this sucks, I'm done".

    No, JT was mistakenly considered a BTB at first, but if your chin can't hang, you can't bang.

    Hes down to almost 230... runs over 5 miles a day and has been training his ass off. I'm struggling writing him off for this. Let me find a video.

    230 is tough to believe. The vid you posted he said he was 258. I don't know when that was from and maybe he's cut some more weight, but 230 on Tank? I gotta see this.
