    Thanks for the background. There'a a lot of new names here. I look up MMA facts all the time but its hard to keep track of the newcomers.

    I agree. Karo should take this. I'm also excited for the Lauzon fight. And what the hell happened to Baroni?

    What happened to Baroni? Are you serious bro. He has never been a great fighter and like always when he cant knock you out he loses. He was never good dude. Also I would think Karo would win but he sometimes looks like shit and other times he looks great.I dont think Karo will ever be at the level of the elite fighters. Which is my biggest problem with him. He talks like he deserves a title shot but he really doesnt impress me or Dana White obviously b/c he never got the title shot. Although I belive he was set to have the title shot a few years back and got hurt during training. So it all depends on how he shows up. I havent seen much of Yoshida besides the Koppenhaver fight. And I really dont think Warmachine deserves to be in the UFC. He belongs somewhere like WEC.

    I like Baroni….but more because he has a heart and he is a decent guy. Obviously that's not going to get him the W, but I'm glad he's still fighting. I'll still watch him.

    I'm in school so I'll check it out later. I like Baroni because he has the stupidest, flashiest intros and they have me rolling every time.
