    This upcoming weekend is sure to be a weekend of excitement and cheer for UFC and MMA fans. UFC 93 in

    Dublin will be a fun fest of MMA cheer right after the

    holiday season, and with the card expected, should be a

    nice start to a jam packed 2009 MMA year.

    too many bj haters! they are both great fighters and i give both full respect. anyone who thinks this will be a lopsided fight is smoking crack! i think bj will come out on top because his better standup (boxing) and his ability to catch you in a submission from any position. yes his cardio might be a factor but remember this, GSP does have a glass jaw and when he gets rattled or thrown off his game plan he has a hard time getting back on track. the ONLY reason why bj lost the first fight is because of his cardio. bj all the way baby!! HAWAIIAN!!

    and another one for the crack smokers i think alves would give GSP a very tough fight, GSP would definitely not walk all over him that's for sure!

    Penn got spanked, It was glorious to watch! Who said GSP was over rated? GSP absolutely dominated Penn and its because GSP is a far superior athlete, its really that simple! OH CANADA!
