    So in Barnett's 19 or so fights in the UFC he made more in 1 fight in PRIDE because he was able to avoid taxes????? Yeah that makes sense...

    Those damn taxes, I know when my direct deposit goes into my bank account every 2 weeks I look at what I have made and it is always in the negative becasue of those damn taxes so I actually lose money every 2 weeks and pay my mortgage, car, credit cards and all of my other bills with my monopoly money.

    You must be very very young... Las vegas state tax is at a rate of 7.25%, that will not equate to making less money in 19 UFC fights over 1 Pride fight. He was probably making $15,000-$20,000 in UFC and went to Pride and they pay him $200-$250,000 per fight.

    I would say "fuck you" to UFC as well and join Pride and it's stacked HW division as ALL fighters are in it for the money and MOST fighters want to be tested by fighting the best fighters in the world. Franklin is an exception or he would've stayed at LHW to fight Chuck so he obviouly knows it would not turn out so good for him and he can drop to MW and hold onto a belt for a long time (which he has) until a stiker is brought in (which has finally happened now with Silva so Franklin's days MIGHT be numbered).

    if he fought liddell any time soon he would get ko'ed so bad. but give him a couple of years and who knows. but as of now or even in like 6 months he cant contend with chuck.

    and u think griffen will ever beat liddell or even become as successful as he is?
    ROFL

    I Believe griffen can Liddell is not unbeatable and Forrest has a good chin, love too see how good it is against Liddell
    Is Forrest a Contender or just a Pretender???

    I watched the Japanese version I haven't seen the FSN version.

    Also Henderson, Bustamante ,Josh Barnett, Phil Baroni and all the others leave because pride pays them alot more than UFC.
    Josh Barnett said it himself I got paid more with 1 fight in pride than all my fights with the UFC, so if you a fighter where are you gonna fight?

    Stop saying stupid things like they couldn't cut it in the UFC.

    The only reason the top UFC guys look great is because they keep putting chumps up against them Liddell vs. Sobral come on lets see Liddell fight someone who can take a punch and counterpunch like Quinton Jackson who fit those 2 criteria and destroyed Liddell, I wonder how Dana White felt when seeing his top striker crushed right before his eyes.
    Dana White will never put a good striker against Liddell until a young star like Griffin is ready to carry the belt.

    Also loook at Wanderlei Silva's 2 losses in the UFC
    lost to Vitor Belfort in 1998 when Vitor was a machine
    Lost to Tito Ortiz in a boring grapple match

    he had henderson's right hand scouted so well, it was almost automatic that he ducked it. henderson isnt that good of a set up striker and he found that out and used it to his advantage. he knew he just had to duck it. if henderson hit him with it he would have been out, its good to get the one punch ko, but sometimes u have to set it up with other punches or kicks and henderson doesnt set up his punches. but he didnt really damage henderson very well and had the fight gone on another round henderson would have ko'ed him. it just goes to show that even though his right is so powerful if u scout it right u can do well, henderson shouldnt always just go for the homerun.



    mma pimp is right, fedor and henderson couldnt make it in the ufc. he also said that vitor and wand couldnt eaither. what a jackass
