    Whoever said Dollaway tapped, I saw it too I cant believe they didnt stop it, ref must not have saw it. We can argue the lesnar mir thing all we want and were just gonna have to wait and see what happens in the ring, I think brock will win. I also think if rampage can get the title fight he should take it and not run the risk of getting caught or choked out by a lesser fighter. Wandi is far from done, he looked fine until rampage caught him with that hook that his eyes were closed for about 90% of it, watch the tape, he didnt see most of that punch. Kongo in my opinion deserves the next shot after mir lesnar because aside from my hatred for his gay chest pound he has looked REALLY good his last few fights and the heavyweight division isnt getting any better anytime soon, maybe a carwin kongo fight,id like to see that. I would also like to see Machida get the fight with Evans because I think he "should" beat silva and I think he would be a tough match up for evans or anybody really.

    im not quite sure who hits harder rampage or evans it will be fun to find out

    as far as i see it wand still holds a 2-1 advantage over rampage… i still say he wins the best of 5 series

    mir looked great and he is a true champion. i think he has the better technique but lesnar isnt human and i just dont see him beating lesnar twice. by the time they fight both will be even better and ic ant wait to see who wins. my money will be on lesnar. he is a freight train i dont see anyone stopping for awhile.

    i think forest should have a rematch with jardine… anyone?

    if rampage loses to rashad or doesnt get the tile shopt how awesome would it be to see him fight randy couture. that is a fight i ahve been wanting to see for a long time.

    Everyone is talking about the Evans-Machida match-up, but Machida has Thiago Silva first. Silva is a threat to anyone at 205.

    Dane man, you hit it on the nose about forrest v jardine…see comment 87 ;)…but theres no way Randy could stand in there against Rampage…it just wouldn't be pretty

    Morey Mirs face looked bad b/c of the hammerfists not the stand up lazy armpunch jab. The only reason Lesnar has done good standing is b/c ppl are fearing the takedown so he catches them off balence and bull rushes. Standing with Randy is not dangerous and it sure as hell dont mean u r a great stand up fighter. Randy can get hit by a pillow and be rocked. I just cant believe a WWE guy came in and beat down some UFC vets. It just shows how fucking weak the HW division really is. Maybe they should start getting some NFL guys to come in and fight. Another thing is that Rampage would destroy randy and KO him as bad as chuck got Randy. I dont want to see that and nor would I pay to see that. Randy has to chose his match ups carefully. Anderson and Rampage probally wont fight and if they did it would not be good for Rampage. Remeber what forest did. He picked him apart. Who is better and staying out of range and picking guys apart? Anderson Silva is. Forrest is good at doing it but forrest lacs the finishing power and A. Silva has lots of power from any position. Why watch Jardine vs Forrest again? That doesnt seem that interesting to me at all. I would much rather see Chuck vs Forrest. Anyhow Chuck is fighting Jardine and it will be a knockout for him and they will put him in a super fight after that.

    What the Fuck is a bull Rush???? The only time Lesnar did anything like that was in the second the Heath Fight where he threw a flying knee….no other time did he come out like a bull and push someone down or trip them what the hell are you all watching. My experience comment had to do with the experience level of each man fighting eachother already and lesnar gaining some more experience from the first fight so in other words its unlikely that he will be caught in a submission due to what happened last time around as Lesnar will not knowingly put himself in that position again…if he gets caught it will be because Mir earned it and not given to him so easily as the first time around. Steve you comment about Lesnar's Stand up that he catches them off balance and bull rushes them..dont agree with the bull rush comment, but catches them off balance…well know wouldnt that make him a pretty good striker if he can consistently catch fighters off balance with his striking? i believe so just face it the man is getting better every day and with every fight and obviously you cant handle the truth…sure he has alot more to learn but just give the man his credit and stop complaining…lets just see how he develops in the next few years and than we can talk about how dominant of a champion he is…if he keeps winning.

    Oh and Steve..while Lesnar may have been in the WWE he is a true NCAA National Wrestling Champion and mulitiple time All American who deserve respect from an athlete perspective..the man is just a pure athlete and the best HWGHT MMA has seen for awhile regarding overall Size, Speed, power and wrestling ability…just give the man time as i have been saying and he will be a great MMA fighter and has already proven he belongs…what other man could come into MMA with only 2 years of training and 1 fight and dominate the HWGHT division in the UFC…and while that division may not be as deep as the others its still true MMA fighters he is facing some of them have gone toe to toe wtih Fedor and he killed them okay only Heath did as far as i know but the truth is that you cant accept it forget about his WWE days the man is a true Athlete no other WWE entertainer with out his background could come into MMA with only 2 years of training and kick ass.

    from what i have heard dana wants rampage to fight rashad next, jardine does not want to fight chuck it possible but unlikely that fight will happen.chuck will headline ufc 96 but they don't know aganist who yet, amybe the loser of henderson franklin.

  11. dane drebin

    December 30, 2008 at 4:08 am

    i dont know why u all think rampage would just walk through randy

    i think randy could beat him in the clinch take him down and would have the edge in wrestling and grappling ont he ground. he took head kicks from gonzaga and beat his ass who can hit a lot harder than rampage. rampage is more technical for sure but if randy could close the distance and smother him i could see him giving page a lot of problems. forrest says randy whoops him in the gym and hasnt showed signs of noticably aging so thinking the legend randy coudlnt be a threat to anyone in the 205 division is retarded.

    when are u people gunna wake up mir just beat nog a few days ago lol anything can ahppen in this game

    it would be a competitive match and a ton of people would pay to see it whether u would or wouldnt steve no one cares

  12. Tim

    December 30, 2008 at 4:28 am

    Dana wants to give Rampage a rematch with only 1 fight between? it would be nice but i think it all depends upon his court date later in January on who he fights next. Rampage said he wants griffin but i want to see Rampage vs Rashad.

  13. roy

    December 30, 2008 at 4:36 am

    i think it could be a great fight dane, and your right anything can happen but rampage striking and power i think would be to much for randy and rampage has already beat two great wrestlers in henderson and lindland so i think he could deal with randys wrestling.

  14. Ryan S

    December 30, 2008 at 2:03 pm

    Yeah Dane, I would base Rampage winning solely off his striking. In the clinch and on the ground, I would hands down give it to Randy. I think it would depend on where the fight stays. Randy doesn't have a chin like he used too.

    Tim, I don't think anyone is saying Lesnar isn't good. Hell, I agree with you that he is great, and he will only get better, and he does have mountains of potential to add to his already existing ability. The only thing I am saying is that Mir is a Black belt in BJJ, he is good at submissions. If he was able to catch Lesnar in a leg lock, which many fighters don't like to do, how can you honestly say that he PROBABLY won't catch him again? I'm not saying Mir will definately win, but hell, its MMA, not only can anything happen, but it already has. I understand you are a fan of Lesnar's, but I personally am not taking any credit away from him. I'm just basically saying I am making no assumptions for this fight, I know it could go either way, and I think both of them have equal chances at winning, only in different ways.

    Dane why the fuck would anyone really want to see Randy get vicously KO'd again and waste what could be a great main event fight with having rampage fighting an actual contender. Tim I know u love Lesnar and everything but isnt it pathetic that a WWE fighter can come in and be the HW champ. OMG he won the NCAA wrestling championship. Kurt angle won a gold medal but I wouldnt excpect himto come in and win the 205 lb championship. Oh well he wouldnt u know? because it has a lot of talent unlike the HW division that is not just in the ufc but also in afflicition.

  16. Tim

    December 31, 2008 at 1:35 am

    I agree anything can happen and nothing is ever personal with me, your opinions are respected. No i dont think its pathetic that a WWE guy can come in and dominate cause Lesnar actually is a Natural Athlete he isnt just muscular like most of the WWE guys, he actual has Atheltic Ability which alot of HWGHTS in MMA do not, you see there is a difference between Athletic Ability and being good at what you do…Fedor for one has trained extensively in MMA etc…so he is very good but i guarentee you if Fedor was to come into MMA with only 2 years of training and 1 fight He could not do what Lesnar has done in the HWGHT division…thats the differance between the two…Lesnar is a Natural Athlete and can adapt and do well with very little time…shit he went to the NFL and made the Vikings squad and was only cut due to a motorcycle injury and they still wanted him to play in NFL Europre but he chose not to…by the way lesnar hadnt played Football since High School. Kurt Angle would of done great in MMA in my opinion if he would of gotten into it 5 years ago but due to his neck injuries now i dont think its likely. Bobby Lashley is another one with promising Talent and Natural Ability. All i am saying is we are seeing a new age of Natural Athletes in MMA coming into our mist and will run the current HWGHTS right out of MMA in the next 10 years. The new age has begun its just a matter of time before they take over MMA.

  17. Tim

    December 31, 2008 at 1:39 am

    Oh and i am not saying no MMA fighter has Athletic Ability cause they do obviously otherwise they wouldnt be able to learn MMA and perform well…its just a matter of Natural Ablitiy and not trained Ablitiy.

    Dont ever say Fedor couldnt do what Lesnar has done. U have no clue what Fedor can and cant do lol. U even comparing him to Fedor just proves how INTO Lesnar u really are. Fedor will always be better then Lesnar atleast until Fedor wants to retire. When are u gonna relalize that Fedor is 28-1 and Lesnar has already lost as many fights in only 4 fights. Lets see Lesnar after 20 fights. Then if he is 18-2 19-2 then u can compare him to Fedor but 4 fights in your an idiot to compare the 2. Athletic ability doesnt always mean how fast u can run and how much u can lift. And Fedors skills are all made for MMA. Sambo champ with a good chin and awesome strking and submission game. So stop comparing.

  20. Tim

    January 1, 2009 at 9:51 am

    Like i said Athletic Ability..some people just have no freaking clue what that is….ask any MMA expert or sport guru…Lesnar is the most athleticly gifted HWGHT to enter MMA ever…i was not saying Fedor cant do what lesnar has what i am saying is take away Fedor's knowlege of MMA curently and start him off with only 2 years of training and 1 MMA fight…I guarentee you that he could not accomplish what Lesnar has with only 2 years of training so far…Fedor has trained extensively for years and has built up his overall athletic ability i am not denying that STEVE!!!! my comment and purpose is that LESNAR is a hell of alot more of a NATURAL PURE ATHLETE and is so much more Evolved Athleticly than practily any other fighter out there and any HWGHT period for a man of his size…this just isnt news from me…check out Yahoo Sports, NewYork Times, LA Times, ESPN MMA Live..they have all said in articles and shows that Lesnar is basically the Evolution of Athleticsm and what has captured everyone's attention on him is his Athletic Ability to be able to transfer into MMA with only 2 years of training PERIOD and fight and demolish top level talent in the UFC…now Yes i like lesnar but unlike you i dont hold onto his Nuts like you do to FEDOR…FEDOR is GOD to you and no one can ever compare to his greatness not even the lord all mightly himself..BULLSHIT Steve get a freaking life open up your eyes and realize that while Fedor is great fighter he didnt just get there one day or within 2years of training like Lesnar has although Lesnar is far from a Great Fighter in my eyes as i will admit he has major potential to be great and right now i will call him a legend in the making but he still has to prove alot to me and yes i like lesnar but i am not afraid to see or speak the truth unlike some of you retards out there who cant handle pure and utter truth. Bottom line LEsnar is the most overall athleticly gifted athlete to enter MMA…while you may think all fighters have athletic ability they dont while some have some others and pure natural athletes which lesnar is and I am sorry but Fedor is not…Athletic Abiltity is all about Strenght, Speed, Conditioning, Mental toughness, Ability to adapt to different movements and sports and learn quickly…again i am not saying Fedor doesnt have athletic ability…what i am saying is LEsnar is a far better athlete than he is…just look at his past and his present whatever you may think Fedor could not have accomplished what Lesnar has done if he was in the same situation as lesnar…new to MMA never really trained at all for it and with only 2 years of training accomplished dominating 4 MMA fights and winning the UFC HWGHT Title..even with one loss…also Win lose record doesnt mean shit honestly cause look at boxing some guy can be 30-0 and than he faces a man who is 25-5 and that guy beats the shit out of him because he was simply the overall better Athlete and better at the sport than he was. There is no doubt that Fedor at this given moment is better than Lesnar but you cant put them in the same class…Lesnar Athleticly is on a hell of differentlevel but on a knowlege and experience level Fedor tops him surely. You must see the breakdown varience between being a trainined fighter and being a trained fighter with Exceeding Athletic Ability..huge Difference my friend and anyone in the athletic world, personal trainers, excersice physiology, sports medicine, doctors etc.. will understand this..The problem iwth you STeve and most people is they think Superficially and dont think Deeply at the basis of what makes an Athlete the better athlete and why that is a huge edge when combined with training and knowledge and experience. Give Lesnar time and if he truly in his Mind and heart wants to continue to learn and develop as a fighter he will undoublity become a legend in MMA and by some standards is already as he is the first Pro wrestler to ever come over to MMA and be succesfull and hold a championship with 2 years of training. Oh and Fedor skills are made for MMA??? if i recall you are not born with MMA skills you dont wake up one day and go i am a BJJ black belt, i am a Sambo Champion, i am a pro boxer…NO you train for all of that and become an athlete and for those you are naturally born athletes they can learn and develop and dominate the game of any in a short period of time. Bottom line again is Fedor is the better fighte but LEsnar is the better athlete and combine that with MMA skills and eventually you will have one hell of a fighter.

    I apoligize for such a long post but i was a on a roll and you all know how that goes…sorry again….say Happy New years to you all and may this year be blessed with good fortune for you all even for the people on here who dont like me or my comments. Should be a great and exciting MMA year.

    Lesnar is more athleticly gifted then GSP? LMAO. U said anyone and that includes GSP. TRhat is hilarious. And u contradict urself also by saying that u didnt say fedor couldnt do what Lesnar has done but then u flat out say it. U say I think Fedor is GOD but yet u think Lesnar is gonna go down as the best MMA fighter ever after 4 fights. Pull his dick out of your mouth and realize that he is 3-1 period. Who has he beat? Min Soo Kim lol thats a gimme. Heath Herring. A decent fighter but not a top 10 fighter. Randy Couture who is way past his prime and who is really a 205 lb fighter. So dont go talking shit about me defending when u compare him to lesnar in anyway. Lesnar was given a title shot after losing to Frank Mir and beating Heath Herring. So he is 1-1 in the UFC and they gave him a title shot. That has nothing to do with his skils but his major PPV drawing ability. So dont ge too high on him just yet. Oh wait u are as high as any can go with him. Lets be real u typed like 9 times in a row on a post about him. So get off his nuts until he proves he deserves the recognition ur giving.

    January 1, 2009 at 10:13 am

    Hey Tim. I agree Lesnar is the superior athlete. Not to take anything away from Fedor. Fedor is an elite athlete as well. Lesnar is special. If he develops the skills to match his athletic ability he will be a dominant champion for a long time. I have to say I would love to see Fedor fight Brock when Brock has mastered his game. Fedor is the best today but I know Lesnar is closing in on him. I don't like Lesnar but I'm not an idiot. He is getting better all the time. I just hope he can let go of his WWE bravado manner. I would love to be a fan of the guy but he comes off as a tool to me. Anyway Happy new year!!

    Steve is right. The only reason Lesnar got the title match is because of his fake ass WWE name selling ppv buys. That being said, he did beat Herring and Randy. Can't blame the guy for dana's tactics.

  26. Tim

    January 1, 2009 at 10:32 am

    Steve i said Lesnar is the most athleticly gifted HWGHT to enter MMA ever did i mention GSP or any other fighter if i did as i stated those were not my comments those were the comments from Dave Meltzer Yahoo sports MMA. Anyways your not getting my point Fedor is the better fighter but Lesnar is the overall better athlete period end of story the truth is the truth. STeve Lesnar wasnt the only fighter to get a title shot after only 4 fights…Couture did, Anderson Silva did…so…. and i am not against Fedor and i am not really comparing him to Lesnar i was making a point about the difference between athletic Ablity and a natural born athlete and someone who trainined and became a atlhlete/figher….Thanks FEdor 24 at least you show some class and are knowledgeable unlike Steve who just cant read between the line there…and i will be the first to agree and admit lesnar has a long way to go to catch up to Fedor but that fight if it were to hapen would in intrigueing but wouldnt happen or shouldnt for at least another 5 years…Steve just give Lesnar his credit as it is due he has accomplished alot with a very short amount of time like no other fighter could really do again i am not taking anyting aways from Fedor just making a point. Seriously though i need to go to bed…Happy New years and nothing personal Steve. How was everyone NEw YEars?????

  27. Tim

    January 1, 2009 at 10:36 am

    I agree the only reason why he got the title shot to begin was because he could draw money…it was purely a bussiness decision and i dont agree he deserved it but take nothing away from him as its not LEsnars fault for getting the shot or for beating those fighters you stated as well…okay i am seriously going to stop…so sorry if i offended anyone….later you all…

  28. steve

    January 2, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Tim ur right nothing personal. Squashed as i say. Lesnar is a physical freak. Just dont think he is well rounded and good for the sport. Im done with this.
