I am jumping that JLB is getting another shot at Schilt. Badr is going to have a challenge in Fuiosta as well

So JLB is pretty much fighting the best heavyweight kickboxer and a top 10 mma fighter all in one month? If he wins both of those he will officially be my hero, although I don't see either happening. Hopefully he doesn't get hurt or anything in his match with Semmy, I am actually really looking forward to him fighting Cro Cop

Yeah, Jerome is going for broke lol

In all fairness, in both fights, he is still training to fight a kickboxer. Hopefully no injuries happen fighting Schilt as you said, like last time.

I heard Remy was rumored to be fighting Hari instead of Fuitosa.

i'm hoping Gago Drago pulls off an upset cuz i REALLY want to see a rematch against Buakaw. that was a classic fight.

Drago got ko'd recently by William Diender, pity cause I like him, I'd like to see him beat Masato too.

the main problem with Gago is his aggressivness. when he's too aggressive, he leaves himself open.

I don't see him doing it personally, but I am with you. Not just because of a rematch with Buakaw (who I would pick to win because I love him lol), but because I like Drago a lot like Val, he is a lot of fun to watch.


the main problem with Gago is his aggressivness. when he's too aggressive, he leaves himself open.

Yeah, I think his aggressiveness is not comparable to say, Wanderlei Silva. There is a method to Wanderlei's madness, whereas Drago's is a little more reckless and directionless.




As a whole, I am more excited for the max event, but I really want to see Schilt vs. Jerome more than anything else.

July is an exciting month for us fans, UFC 86, K-1Max, Affliction, Dream 5 and Elite.

Yeah, this July is basically going to beat the shit out of last July.

Remember that awful dry spell of no MMA, and I think no K-1 either, from like July 5th to August 15th or 25th or something like that?

That was just terrible. It was summer and it was a boring month lol.



Who do you guys have winning at this thing for the bigger fights? I got Aerts, Schilt (even though I want JLB to win), and Hari. I think it is possible Fuitosa could pull the upset, but I doubt it

Aerts, Hari and what the hell I'll go with JLB just cause I really want him to win and he has a decent shot outside the tournament format.

Yeah I remember that really boring patch last summer, no mma and tons of repeat threads, it sucked lol

I honestly think JLB can do it. It is just a matter of "will he do it?" I just wish he was training solely for Schilt and not for Cro Cop as well. Like I said, either way, he is preparing for a kickboxer, but not having Cro Cop in his mind at all would make a huge difference.


Semmy Schilt vs. Jerome Le Banner should be a great fight.

Yea, July is fucking packed, and now with the UFC looking to do a show on the 19th as well, it will only get better.

I can't believe UFC is going to do a July 19th show. They will be having 4 events in about a month and 10 day span lol

Ya, training for Semmy and Cro Cop are different as well but if he is in some solid cardio shape I think he may give Semmy a handfull. The more I think about it the more I respect JLB for doing this

i want JLB to win, but Semmy hits hard and i just see JLB getting TKO'd (injury) in this fight.
