  1. Anyone here plan on watching? I'm a huge fan of the Diaz Brothers, and will be rooting for Nick tonight. Should be a decent card overall:

    Welterweight bout: Matt Brown (14-11) vs. Chris Cope (5-3)

    Main card

    Middleweight bout: Ed Herman (19-7) vs. Clifford Starks(8-0)
    Bantamweight bout: Renan Barão (#5)(29-1, 1NC) vs. Scott Jorgensen(#5)(13-4)
    Welterweight bout: Josh Koscheck (#6)(18-5) vs. Mike Pierce(13-4)
    Heavyweight bout: Roy Nelson (#14)(17-6) vs. Fabricio Werdum(#5)(14-5-1)
    Interim Welterweight Championship: Nick Diaz (27-7-1, 1NC) vs. Carlos Condit (#4)(27-5)
  2. Definitely watching! Nice detailed open to the discussion thread too. Will move it to "Other Wrestling" though. Having it here will attract LQ posts unfortunately :emoji_stuck_out_tongue:.
  3. That's cool man I considered posting it there but wasn't sure if it qualified as 'other wrestling' or not.

    Other thoughts on tonight: I hope Werdum knocks Roy Nelson's head off because I don't like that fatass, and I look forward to seeing Koscheck (my favorite HEEL in MMA) putting Mike Pierce to sleep with an uppercut.
  4. Yeah we've sort of used this section to discuss UFC, eventually it'll definitely get its own section.

    As for tonight, I'm new to UFC watching so don't know many of them, but I'm a big fan of Diaz brothers already so I'll also be rooting for Nick. Put a site notiec up for this thread too, we have quite a few UFC fans here.
  5. Diaz, Starks & Barao to win. Dunno on the rest.
  6. So apparently they are debuting a new intro tonight and finally ditching the long played out Gladiator theme
  7. I'm definitely watching it.
    Let's hope Condit will rape Diaz.
  8. Why @[Tzesi] whyyy!!? :emoji_slight_frown:
  9. I''ve told you before @[Crayo], Diaz is a dick :emoji_grin:
  10. I can see Diaz winning tbh. He is a dick but still a very talented fighter.
  11. @[seabs] you got a PC friendly method? :emoji_slight_smile:
  12. Done if anyone else needs some PM or tag me.
  13. F you bro, Diaz Brothers are the shit.

    Prelims on FX about to start

    Pulling for Riddle in this fight. I liked him on his season of TUF

    >come out to Jukebox hero
    >Like a boss
  14. Who are these two again? Just put it on.
  15. Nobodys. Riddle was on a season of the UFC Reality Show the Ultimate Fighter a few years back. Never heard of this other guy, but he's got sharp stand up with quick combinations punching and leg kicks
  16. The pre-prelims from Facebook results :
    Welterweight bout: Dan Stittgen vs. Stephen Thompson
    Thompson defeated Stittgen via KO (head kick) at 4:13 of round 1
    Middleweight bout: Rafael Natal vs. Michael Kuiper
    Natal defeated Kuiper via unanimous decision (30–27, 30–27, 29–28)

    Stolen from wiki.
  17. Riddle got his ass kicked round 1. Hopefully he can make some adjustments because he is getting counter-punched to hell

    He's going to get KO'd unless his chin is made of granite. Needs to take this to the ground

    close round, I'd give it to Riddle based on all of those nice kicks he landed
  18. Martinez kicking his ass.
  19. Boring fight thus far.
  20. :no: I enjoyed it

    29-28 Riddle in my book. Judges should see it the same way
