    doerkeson lost his WEC fight and he gets back in the UFC??? I am confused I thought UFC was better LOL. He is gonna be a debut for somebody. Elvis Sinosic must be sick of getting his ass kicked.LOL And i hope randy and dana can stop this bullshit and just let him fight. Pay him the most and he will stop complaining. Sherk is gay and will lose his title. B.J. would beat him up anyways. Unless he didnt train hard and sherk could take it to the distance. Sherk is gay because he doesnt finish fights just like Kenflo said.

    Steve…lol..Are you implying Sherk is happy or homosexual?….j/k.. You gotta give it to ol' Elvis, he sure tries hard….Anyway, I don't know what will come of the "talks" but I'd actually like to see Randy sign elswhere(if possible) for a chance at Fedor. I think it's a joke the way the Sherk situation is being handled.

    haha, Elvis seems like he is the UFC's measuring stick for up and comers. But you have to hand it to the guy he has a good nickname…the king of rock and rumble. I don't want to see Randy have to take so much time off. Its not everyday you see someone get their second prime at that age, it takes a lot more motivation and you have to really watch out for injuries.

    I dont know what they are doing with Sherk, you would think with a title on the line they could handle things better. If they do find him guilty, then the UFC should have no other option, he has to be stripped.

    About Doerkson, the guy has a ton of experience and against great fighters. His last fight he lost to Filho who many think is the 2nd best middleweight in the world. On top of that, he already has a win over Ed Herman so this is a revenge match for Ed. The middleweight class in the UFC is getting boring with Anderson Silva at the top and everyone else fighting for who is #2. They need someone now who has the skill and experience to at least shake up some of these fights thats why they brought Doerkson back.
