You know this section is dead when one of the last great old man shitfights was made like 20 days ago and I just found out about it now.

I'm talking about Fedor vs Rampage which is happening on a big Bellator/Rizin New Year's Eve 2 day event that starts on December 29. Kyoji Horiguchi is fighting the guy that knocked him out on the Rizin side and Michael Chandler is also fighting Ben Henderson. BUT FEDOR VS RAMPAGE.

Remember when there was talk that Ben Askren was a bad matchup for GSP?

I don't know how good of a source this guy is or what his connection would be but Joe Rogan had Lethwei fighter Dave Leduc on his podcast yesterday and this dude is saying that Diego Sanchez has been cut from the UFC.

I posted that Fedor match on here a few weeks ago.

In a move that should surprise nobody Gilbert Melendez has been cut by the UFC. Five fight losing streak with a USADA case thrown in, totally understand why but in a different world he beats Bendo in his debut and who knows what the rest of his career looks like.

I was shocked when he was booked for his last fight. Assumed he’d been cut by then. Forgot about the suspension.

Regardless of that he had some decisions not go his way I think he's going to be lumped into the same category as Hendricks, Weidman and others which is that he dropped off hard once USADA came to town.

As much as Jan has been a really reliable action fighter/finisher as of late I figured that it would amount to a boring fight. Jacare wasn't going to bang out with him like he did with Weidman because he'd get KO'd and Jan wasn't going to open up offensively because he's on the short-list for a title shot and didn't want to risk his spot.

Also, that Shogun/Craig scorecard was badddddd. The first wasn't a 10-8 for Craig and Shogun did enough in two and three to win. I know that Shogun has had some results in Brazil go his way recently but this one he legitimately earned and it sucks that he doesn't get a W.

Might as well. Wasn’t going to get any easier for him in the UFC. Shame he never got a look when he was in his prime. Being pretty one-dimensional now just doesn’t cut it like it used to.

He needs a hip replacement but credit to him he said that the reason he's retiring is because he can't hang with the current crop of WW's.

Having said all that, he was going to struggle with any era of 170 whether it was the current one or the fighters of the past. GSP would have aired him out and I think he would have run up against problems with Hendricks, Koscheck and Fitch too.

Ali Abdelaziz made a really weird tweet about fighters not complying with USADA which naturally has given birth to rampant twitter rumors that Usman has popped.

I heard the same about Khabib.

In other news, I heard through the grapevine that the UFC Raleigh card *may* be in jeopardy.  The Boxing Authority/Commission was recently reconstituted and is an unmitigated mess, so don't be shocked if this card is canceled or rescheduled.

Does it count as a "low" kick, if the guy you're trying to kick is seven feet tall?

They’re not low on anyone else in MMA. Fighters need to adjust everything when it comes to Struve.

Yeah I don't quite know what to think about that stoppage. Big Dan I think fucked up by calling it in the delayed fashion that he did because Reem landed with his hands bracing his fall and bounced back up fairly quick. A lot of people are saying that they should have let it continue because there was only four seconds left in the fight but I think the counter to that argument is that a doctor who sees damage that severe isn't supposed to care about there being only four seconds left. That cut was legit horrific.

Did he really have it in the bag?  I had it 2-2 going into the last round and Rozenstruik would have defintely won the 5th.

This kind of thing is pretty bad for the sport in that the 20% of fans who like this guy are going to be reconditioned to accept anything less than someone dying to not be a "real" loss. While I really don't give a fuck about any of those people or what they think, some fucking idiot talking this kind of shit is gonna lead to people not buying shows.

In addition, I hate this guy so much that I do feel like Marc Goddard should have let him die.

It's bad in a sense because it'll just lead to people on small regional shows getting massively destroyed. Something like that always happens as refs who can't make it in the real places usually get influenced by top level fighters who act like this leading to someone who shouldn't even be fighting getting life altering damage.

In a semi-surprising move Rory MacDonald has signed with PFL. I think he saw his chances of regaining a belt in Bellator versus the talent level in PFL plus the one million dollar prize for wining the tournament and sees this as his exit strategy out of the sport.

“I’m going to go out there and stand up with him because that’s what everyone wants to see,” Cerrone said. “Someone said earlier that’s like fighting not to win almost, but hell no. I’d rather go down in history as having the greatest fight ever and losing than fighting to just win and winning. I’m going out there to put on the line and throw down and give everyone what they want to see. To me, that’s what I want my legacy to be. I don’t want to be the guy that took the easy way and just ran the whole fight and tried to point fight. Hell, no. I’m going to stand and try to throw down.”

Frankie has been my favorite fighter for some time now. Finally ready to admit he should probably hang it up. He’s pushing 40 and a few years ago this is a fight he would have have won soundly in my opinion. Great win for Zombie.
