Dana White has duped us afterall. When the UFC bought out Strikeforce earlier this year, Dana White said that it would be business as usual as far as co-promotion fights would go. Well business just seemed to pick up. Rich Franklin (28-6)has verbally agreed to face Gegard Mousasi (30-3) in a Light Heavyweight bout that would be the first fight to pit an active UFC fighter against an active Strikeforce fighter. While contracts have yet to be finalized, sources close to the parties involved have said it's just a matter of days before the fight is announced. Stay tuned for more announcements as they become available.

It actually was very believable, and i hadn't even seen Icecold's prank topic. I would have clicked the link if i hadn't already read the 2nd post lol

Awesome. :grinsmile1:

I like to write so I just threw something down and glad it sounded believable.

But it would be a sick fight none the less.

mmm not really, when I read the title I thought "Its maybe a prank, but it may be real too, lets click" and bam!! a prank, damn!

But bad thing is that for the next 24 hours when we read any article we are not going to know if it is true or not (unless it says something more than obvious, for example: "Pride reborns and buys Zuffa")

If there is actually any big news today, i most likely wont believe it. Imagine if zuffa had bought pride today. that would be a sweet fight though. Been a fan of mousasi. can he beat lyoto and anderson like some claim, no. Would a fight with rich be great, yes. Both top10 or very close to top10 lhw's and if they went back to mw could beat most of fighters not named anderson.

:ban:

Neg'd. I personally don't find this amusing at all and I think it's an assclown move to post something like this when it's already bad enough that we have to wait for God knows how long for any Strikeforce/UFC fights to happen. What the hell are you thinking, man? I don't appreciate this bullshit. You should know this part of the board is for legit news and not for some stupid little game. This needs to be noobjacked before people really believe this crap and question the reliability of our board. FFS...




























APRIL FOOLS!!! :lmfao: You got me with this article, brother. :grinsmile36:

OMG! Dude, congrats! You really got me! I saw that and came out my seat lol. A co-worker walked by and looked at me like I was crazy. Realizing I had been duped, I just looked back with no explanation as if to say, yes, I am crazy and?

Good stuff bro.
