anunaki -  This is by design. They are going to make barnett, cornier, and gracie look good before they show up in the big show.

Im not against an occasional, exiting can crushing...

Lets hope no one shits the bed here Phone Post

Yeah wouldn't look good if Barnett loses to "The Hun"

Barnett isnt even signed to the UFC at this point and nobody knows for sure if he will be after SF folds. IF he loses he def wont be signed but even if he wins this fight we dont know if he will sign with the UFC.

Hopefully he does.

First post! Let's see Barnett in the UFC again. He may only have a couple of competitive bouts left.

That's the risk here, especially at heavyweight. If we get another Russow/Duffee result it won't look good for Cormier or Barnett at all Phone Post

Sal Penis -

Can you imagine the UFC putting a card on like this nowadays? There is no fucking way that would happen. They would give you a top fighter and a bunch of cans to fill up the rest of the card.

 

Besides the UFC on Fox this is likely the last STACKED card you will ever see in MMA. It's a sad day endeed.

If the UFC only had one event left it would look 100x better than this card.Not saying this is a bad card at all but that was a dumb thing to post. Phone Post

I have to assume this is some sort of clever troll.

Cyril Jeff - 
hubris - big step up for Ryan Couture

 

really big opportunity for him, but I think KJ might be too much for him at this point...


I like Ryan but this could get Ugly.

the question is will barnett come over.  this is his 4th fight in SF which is likely his last if he was on a 4 fight deal. 

Barnet and Cyborg look to be the only real question marks.

If Ryan puts it on KJ, he should make it in to UFC.

 

regardless, Noons - Diaz III, anyone?

It is his last fight, he was saying something about his contract being different. SF must have given him a special deal or something because he talked about how his contract couldnt be moved over and I believe they owed him these fights. Maybe it was something like they couldnt cut or release him he had some kind of guaranteed contract he has to get 4 fights.

Otherwise why would SF/Zuffa even put him on this event? Pay 150k to have him fight some no name guy in the middle of the card? Especially if Zuffa knows this is the last SF card and they are done after this I dont think they would really care about putting him on the card unless they had to honor his contract in full.


Will be interesting to see what they do with him, he made 150k for the Sergei fight and who knows if he made anything behind the scenes. You think UFC is gonna pay him that? Big Foot makes 70k, I think thats more in line with what they would want to pay Josh and he wont accept that.

^ ah...  yeah he may have gotten a gauranteed 4 fight deal where they cant cut him with a loss.  Yeah you're right, otherwise they would have just released him.

I think he's worth 150k.  I think zuffa would pay him unless Dana still harbors something inside.  forget about all the peeing in his mouth talk.  Barnett won the UFC title, tested positive and left to pride.

I would love to see me some barnett/mir though.  but if this is his last fight spike may have something where he can pro-wrestle in TNA and fight in bellator.

if they wanted him to lose though they should have matched him up with a guy who'd have a chance and who's coming off a loss... like Miocic or Shane delrosario.

It could also mean champions on the card, DC is technically a SF HW tournament champion.

Hopefully Barnett has time to cycle off by the time the event happens. I want to see what kind of damage he can do in the UFC.

Billytk - Just curious, if you could bet on it what does everyone think the odds of this event actually happening and not being cancelled would be

I'll bet any amount of money this event will go on, card already lost two champs and yet they still have a very good 9 fight deep card and are continuing to announce fights.

Card is still good enough it could lose two more fights and still would go on.
