    nothing to report? that's definitely something. AA fighting ben rothwell will be a good fight. and getting paid 6 figures each for 3 fights will be awesome for AA, since he will finally get the payday he deserves. although i wanted to see mir – AA.

    Would be a shame to let a genuine contender walk out the door in what is still the prime of his career. DANA WAKE THE FUCK UP!!! Stop killing the heavyweight division.

    What's up with the match maker of the ufc !!! (Shit i've been laid-off I need a job what's up D. White) this should be a fight you see on the ufc ,but it looks like they will be loosing another top fighter like AA. WHAT the F@!#K D. White!! I guess Randy,Tim,Tito,and a few other fighters.

    aa is gone, the ufc won't match what he can get from affliction. the best h.w.'s are not in the ufc now they have one top rated h.w. big nog and thats it.

    nog is over rated, all he's got is the armbar, AA is the only all around complete fighter, the UFC has left in the heavy"s, maybe brandon vera, but how much does he realy have to offer. If nog finds some cardio I might take back the over rated part.

    krage you must not know nog, he has no cario problem, aa is already gone and nog has alot more than a armbar, how is he overrated you must be talking from just watching his 2 ufc fights.

    I hope Arlovski pounds on Rothwell. Rothwell talks so much shit about how he is better than the fighters in the UFC so now's his chance to prove it or STFU.

    krage i disagree with u entirely how does nog only have an armbar? he is one of the best bbj practitioners in mma. his last fight he won by choke not armbar. the guy is known for lasting through horrible punishment for many round and then commin back and submitting his opponent. if there was a rope and dope in mma nog would have invented it lol. he's like the ali of the ground. im not saying he's the best ali lost to people im just saying you should give hime the respect he deserves

    So, who do they have mir, vera .Nog only has two fighters to fight one arm bar and rearneck choke thats it (#3 killing the heavywieght division!!!!!!) Brock is not ready,coleman is too old. AA should have been next and his last fight wasn't that sad. (whodini) he won by tko strikes. Oohh, wait they did him wrong and put him on the undercard.
