    A mental lapse of not properly playing the ground game properly. Sounds like an excuse rather than a commendation for the opponent who caught him when he let his guard down or put himself in the wrong position. A poor move in chess is just that. It's nothing more.

    Bah humbug to the escape argument.

    Sure there are guys with no heart in the face of resistance because the individual has never been to the depths what they can take. Call it mental weakness or immaturity rather than saying that the individual was looking for a way to lose. One would not willfully allow one's self to be defeated unless in the position of inevitable defeat, like being stuck in a sub. Fighters who have been to that point before will attempt to overcome resistance rather than give up.

    Not sure about the near-term but long-term the vision is to have Fox Sports be a premium pay service. It goes in line with the Newscorp vision of the future of media. And, honestly, I'm totally fine with it if it packages all the content at a competitive price.

    I won't pay for Fuel because it's too much for 3-4 shitty cards a year but a unified brand would be different.

    SO THAT DONT MAKE SENSE AT ALL FOR ROY
    It would make perfect sense for Roy because Overeem is ranked higher than he is and a win over him would be something very very impressive. He would probably get an immediate title shot if he defeated Overeem.

    As for Miocic, he will surely KO him, but it would not put him closer to a title shot. He would still need to beat a Top 5 guy to get his shot.

    I would definitely be down to meet up if I went to a UFC there. Indianapolis is only 30 minutes away, correct?

    Neat thing about atterbury is that they had Italians detained during ww2. A lot is them liked the area and stayed. If I remember correctly.
    Just like santa anita/san gabriel valley. Santa Anita race track was used as detainment camp for the Japanese and a lot of them ended up staying after the war.

    Overeem vs Browne? Can one cage contain that much cockiness?





    If over-confident sneers could score points...

    It's crazy the difference in Overeem's defense as a fight progresses and I don't think it's always been due to conditioning. I just think he gets incredibly comfortable and then crumbles when cracked really good (See Shogun fight, Chuck, Bigfoot etc.). He's also the epitome of a front-runner. When stuff gets too tough for him, he looks for a way out.
