Spelling wizard, huh? Oh yeah, it is so on! I'll show you what sentence diagramming is about, son. I'm calling my shot right now; indirect object strait up your gerund. I'll take you out with my passive voice, dude; no need for the active. Bring on all the weak-ass adjectives you want - 'cause I KNOW that's all you've got! That's right, son, I'll be raining down verbs on your ass all night long! WOOOO!

Sounds like Sonnen to me.  BTW you should learn to count before you start mocking fighters.  No one is going to give him his 3rd straight loss, since he has NOT had consecutive losses.

That's kind of a random and lame call-out. That's like if Rashad dropped to 185 and called out ... Brian Stann. WTF? At least call out Saffiedine or someone who hasn't lost 2 straight fights.

Lombard is going to be a walking zombie if he has to make 170. He's not a threat to any top ww.

Lombard would look good until he gasses out at the end of the first round. Then GSP would put on a clinic while Lombard flails around acting as a wheezing, walking punchbag.I'm not even a GSP fan...
