    Great point.

    I thought they sounded like it was the first time any of them sat down together and even attempted to call a fight.

    You can never practice enough at something you want to be good at, not working at all together isnt exactly the sound they wanted Im sure.

    I just watched a couple of the fights. I have to say that the commentating was pretty weak and borderline boring at times. Three guys who didnt seem to know how to call a play by play, who often just went off on tangent conversations with each other. Each fight I watched they kept talking about what the fighters should be doing or what would happen if they went to the ground, or if this or that happened...and they were basically ignoring the action in the ring. They need to either get some better guys or make them sit down, watch a ton of recorded fights with the sound off and call it.

    p.s - someone tell Goldberg that the button isnt on top of the head. And why did they refer to a body triangle as a backbreaker? And why is Ivan supposedly famous for it if he only used it once (or did I miss a couple of other times he used it).

    I do apologize to Ricco and anyone who cares for being abit too negative and perhaps coming down too hard in my post. It was pointless and not very constructive. My point could have been made in a much less offensive way.

    I guess I am that stupid. I guess a guy who has gained close to 100 pounds is still a very good fighter. The skills he had when he was lighter are still there and conditioning has nothing to do with being a professional MMA fighter. Just getting into the ring makes him good. After all he did put on a clinic of skill at the fight. My bad. When I said anybody with heart could beat him, I figured common sense would prevail and anyone reading this would know I meant another MMA fighter. Not some random dude off the street. Gain 100 pounds then tell me if even doing things you normally do is easy. And tell me if you're still good at some of the things you used to be good at. I'm not saying Ricco is washed up by any means. What i'm saying is he needs to lose a ton of weight to be competetive with real professionals. If you were paying somone to train and fight, which if you bought the pay per view you are, and the guy you're paying showed up like Ricco, you'd fire him. So please spare me your defense of Ricco at this current weight. That fight was as entertaining as something you'd see at bar on a saturday night. I would love for him to lose weight and become good again.

In reality after Sylvia defended the belt he was stripped for steriod use. Then he and mir fought to determine a new champ. Dont mean to rip on you but that site doesn't prove anything.
    Yeah i say how messed up the title historys for the other belts were but it still had the correct info for the MW title and thats what i was talking about. I knew someone would point it out. Not the best site but it had what i needed.

Ron Ron didn't do anything during the fight. In fact he didn't really attempt anything. I'm not entirely convinced he didn't throw the fight. If it wasn't for the last fight, this would have been the worst MMA pay per view i've ever purchased. It still may be.And the production of this event looked exactly like UFC 10 years ago. I understand that you're just starting out, but if you want to compete against the UFC you have to start where they are now, not 10 years ago. I wouldn't dream of getting their next pay per view unless something huge happens between now and then, like the entire UFC roster moving to WFA. Which apparently wouldn't happen since Rampage was whining about his pay in the middle of the ring during their FIRST pay per view. HOLY CRAP! put a muzzle on that dude he just made you look even more sham.

In a weak UFC division he'd do great.Only problem is Suave's been missing.
    agreed, sometimes certain fights take a huge mental toal on somebody he just wasnt the same fighter after that, and he also gained a ton of weight,i dont know if thats the case but he said he was devistated after that fight and when some people get sad or depressed they turn to food.
