Jones looks so arrogant in that picture. He shouldn't be holding a knife like that, it's so unprofessional.

There, I just saved 3 pages of repeating complaints about him.

If he doesn't ever plan on fighting GSP then what the **** is the point of him being in the UFC or indeed the WW division if his goal isn't to chase titles & be the best in the world.. what a donkey.

Yeah....I hate these fighters that won't fight each other. I think any fighter that says that, can't call themselves "the best." I don't care who it is.

EDIT: The UFC is looking to set up Josh Koscheck VS Nick Diaz. Oh hell yeah!

I've been to a Crossfit gym in LA that Cheick Kongo frequents more than once. He's a pretty quiet laid back guy.

Is there an MMA event in Miami coming up? Overeem was here yesterday, and Dave Bautista just came in now

Not that I know of Lobo.

Forrest Griffin is injured and out of the UFC 155 fight with Phil Davis.

The UFC can't catch a break. I really wanted to see Forrest back too. Losing a co-main event sucks.

I pray that nothing happens to this upcoming FOX card. Even two days out, it seems like anything that can go wrong, will. If this card pulls through, it sure looks to be the best of the year.

My picks:

Swick/Brown - This should be one hell of a fight. Both of these guys are pretty much the exact same fighter and have the same strengths/weaknesses. Pretty much a coin flip.

Penn/MacDonald - This is a very tough fight for me to pick. But I'm going to ride with my boy, like I always have. BJ has the power to knock Rory out and the technique to submit him. Of coarse I can see Rory throwing BJ around and delivering some devastating ground and pound to end the fight. BJ has to finish this fight within the first round, but that's obvious. Nothing about Rory's stand up has me worried. And yes, he is strong, but I don't believe he has the punching power to knock someone out on the feet. In my mind, I see Rory winning this fight and my mind is telling me to pick Rory. My heart though, has BJ knocking Rory out within the first minute.

Shogun/Gustafsson - Pretty straight forward fight here. I have Shogun knocking Gustafsson out in the first round. Shogun isn't coming off any injuries and it hasn't been that long since his battle with Vera, and he usually does great when he doesn't have long layoffs.

Henderson/Diaz - I can see this fight going two different ways. Bendo taking Diaz' legs out and working his wrestling on the ground, or Diaz picking Bendo apart on the feet and eventually submitting him. I see a Bendo victory more likely, but I'm picking Diaz. I think one of Diaz' weaknesses and Bendo's strength is the leg kicks. Bendo has to have watched that Cerrone fight numerous times. And hopefully Diaz has learned from that fight. Too many leg kicks from a guy like Bendo will sure as hell slow you down. Hopefully Diaz gets to work early.

I have Bendo taking a decision tonight. He's a bad matchup for Nate because he throws a ton of kicks and has been known to be nearly impossible to submit in MMA. Nate has really come up though. The way he beat Jim Miller says a lot, but I think that Bendo's movement and kicks will be the difference tonight.

I think Gus is going to use the jab to beat Shogun. Shogun is a blitzer with a very limited gas tank. It's effective, but against a guy that has great reach and a good jab that's going to really neutralize him. We'll see though since Shogun is effective at being that blitzer, but a tall guy like that could jab him all day long and walk away with a ****le tot.

Rory>BJ based purely on the fact that BJ is a below average welterweight at best. Sure he can win the fight, but he hasn't done much at welterweight to make me think that he'll beat Rory. It's MMA so nothing is guaranteed, but Rory should definitely be the favorite tonight.

Diaz -- Bendo has appeared human before with an opponent who has above average striking. Sure, he took out Edgar in impressive fashion but Nick is long and lanky (which makes his jabs and combinations even more dangerous). I see Diaz punishing Ben's body all night long with hooks.

Gustafsson -- Bigger, stronger and better wrestling. That's all it really takes for a severe mismatch when arriving to Shogun's style.

Penn -- Rory absolutely seems like the safer bet, but his boxing isn't on par with BJ's. If McDonald gets clipped, it's all over. Of course though, Rory will likely take the fight to the ground and avoid the striking aspect of the fight.

If I recall correctly I had Edgar as the winner against Bendo in their 2nd fight.

The 2nd fight warranted a rematch far, far more than the 1st fight did as I felt Bendo edged the first & Edgar clearly won the 2nd if I remember correctly.

That being said I think Bendo will beat Diaz. Bendo isn't Cerrone, he won't be like a walking punchbag. I don't feel he'll try to get into a crazy brawl, I think he'll pick his shots & punish Nate with leg kicks as he did against Edgar in their first fight when he comes in.

Not to mention Shogun arrived into the weigh ins looking in the same sort of physical shape as he always does. He'll be exhausted by the 2nd round if it goes that far.

Shogun has proved tough though in his previous 2 fights so I wouldn't be shocked if he managed to scrape through.

Same story as the Shogun, I think BJ will be gassed out at some point in this fight. Rory has good cardio & is competent on the feet & on the ground.

Much like the Shogun fight though I wouldn't be surprised if BJ clips him early putting him in trouble.

Fantastic prelims.

And why the **** is Rory playing around with Penn? That's some bs.

Good fight from Rory. BJ was basically just standing there, he's done.

As I said, BJ's cardio was already fading by the end of the 1st round. He was getting lit up by MacDonald's diverse striking & coming off 2nd best even before he gassed.

Once the 2nd round started BJ was a walking punching bag.

I'm shocked we didn't see MacDonald take him down, he stood with him for the whole fight & completely outclassed BJ.

Abit too cocky though for my tastes. He was already whooping him bad there wasn't much need to start dropping his hands & doing the Ali shuffle.

While it was a good performance from Rory MacDonald, he should have finished BJ given how tired & hurt he looked in the 2nd.

MacDonald is unexciting to me. Particularly because he doesn't want to fight GSP. I know, you train with him... but if you won't fight the champ you've got no place in the division.

And soing the Ali shuffle ... now I just want to see this kid get lit up and knocked out.

I said as much before when I heard about that ****, he's best staying away from GSP anyway cause GSP would **** him up. That being said I want to see MacDonald fight Condit in a rematch.

Rory MacDonald is big enough to be a Middleweight so perhaps he should consider moving up.

I think that Rory has a lot of potential, but I'm not too impressed with his performance outside of his ability to mix up his strikes. Now that's not a knock to him at all, but BJ is such an overrated welterweight that this is what any decent welterweight would do to him.

BJ Penn continuing to fight at welterweight has always been a mistake.

He should've been focused on lightweight again instead of spending these recent fights at welterweight.
