Once upon a time, 'you know who' "fought" 'you know who' and I made a promise to myself that I'd never pay for another Greg Jackson main event after I realized I had been tricked into watching a point sparring match. As someone who has watched since the very first UFC when I was 13 years old, I felt cheated out of a fight that could have been one of the greatest of all time. I'm sure even bringing this up will draw some votes down and "get over it" from a certain demographic here, but having watched tournament format events where Marco Rua and fighters like him went in and fought with true budo against much larger opponents multiple times in one night, I was disgusted.

So, to answer the question - I'll just watch it for free like I always do. Phone Post

RCP -
EatMyRashGuard - Up to $100.00...the rest of the card could be filled with such entertainment as KJ Noons vs Butterbean for all I care. Just getting the satisfaction of knowing that Andy was going to be HellBowed into oblivion would be awesome...unless Andy won then I wouldn't pay anything.
Why the hate for Silva? Phone Post

RCP - GSP vs Silva really doesn't make sense at the moment.. Phone Post
THIS.

GSP has a threat in Hendricks. Doesn't need to be dwarfed in.a fight with Silva.

The fans want Silva vs Jones Phone Post
I completely agree!

What I find funny is everyone is saying oh GSP will be small, why is Silva fighting the smaller guy, we want Jones/Silva.

Isnt the size different gonna be the same in both fights?

Isnt Jones about 220 on fight night or 225? Wasnt Silva like 198 for the SOnnen fight on fight night?

Doesnt GSP weigh around 190 on fight nights? If he fought Silva he would bulk up a bit, they would probably be closer in weight on fight night than Silva/Jones would be or atleast around teh same.



As for the question I'd pay the same amount to See GSP/Silva as Silva/Jones.

I dont know why everyone is rushing for Silva/Jones, why not do GSP/Silva first which is the bigger fight in the mainstream, let Jones possibly continue to defend his belt one or two more times, build up more of a following, more of a name, more of a legacy and than do that fight early next year.

Do GSP/Silva now while you still can, it would be huge for the sport and then focus on Silva/Jones.
