    I have some buddies who are. I'll watch it if we're hanging out. They were excited about UFC 98 last Friday, but there were weddings and other things going on so we didn't connect to watch it together.

    But that's not until May 23rd. Also, the Spike channel airs past events and even a reality show US vs UK, which has young, amateur fighters from both nations who are competing against each other, but also have to live in the same house together.

    I hate to admit it, but team US does have a bunch of cocky, immature, snot-nosed punks and it makes it hard to root for them.

    It's because the US is the home of UFC, they think that they are top dogs... For your own betterment, a defeat would be great.

    A lot of people gave Brock Lesnar a hard time and called him a bad example as if all the "fight promoting" smack talking wasn't bad sportsmanship. I actually didn't have a single problem with the way Brock acted and think it is just a natural humanistic biproduct of the sport and the way the UFC promotes their fights on top of most of the fighters and fan base attitude towards him because he was in the WWE. About the only fighter I have seen giving him any decent reapect is Randy Cotoure. What did they really expext? Henderson's dive punch scared me more than Brock's attitude. For a second there, I thought Bisbing was going to need to be taken to a hospital by an ambulance or something.

    So, does anybody think ole Dana White will be able to get a Fedor vs. Brock fight in the near future? It's quite the talk over the internet: Search
    I hope it happens. I think it would be an excellant fight. Almost like Rocky 4 lol.

    How does anybody think Kimbo Slice is going to do in the next "Ultimate Fighter"?

    Sincerely,
    SoliDeoGloria

    I disliked MIr's attitude more so than I did Brock's, and Dana White made him apologize to the press during the post show conference for his behavior.

    That's just this year. In the past they've had just people from the U.S. being trained by different Coaches(UFC Champs.)
    But I am a fan, really the only sport I'll watch.

    Couldn't agree more lol. I laughed at Brock's apology with a Bud Light right next to him. Personally, I don't even think he should've had to do it. I'm sure the ONLY reason Dana made him was because of the sponsor comment. On top of that all Mir did was play the fans and lie about his strategy during the fight. Mir wanted a replay of their first match and Brock just simply wasn't going to allow that to happen and knew how to get that done and "pull the horse shoe out of his.........", nevermind, you know the rest lol.

    Sincerely,

    UFC is great! I studied material arts and wrestled for two years in junior high. I learned so much about other people and myself through these experiences.

    Which ones? It seems that Brazilian Jujitsu and Muay Thai Kick Boxing are most prominent in MMA.

    Cannot wait for Machida vs. Shogun....

    If only they allowed stomping, Shogun might have something. But, let's face it, what we want to see is Machida vs. A.Silva. But they are both Black House buddies, they will not fight.

    Anyone gonna watch Fedor vs. Brett Rogers?

    WOW!

    I am unbelieavably upset after after 104. Shogun put in a fantastic performance and got robbed of his LHW title. Wow.

    I agree with you, but I have to say Shogun's corner should not have encouraged him to relax. They should not have been telling Shogun he had all the rounds. I wish Shogun or Machida would have pressed more than they did. Good fight overall, because they can both strike, but clearly Shogun whipped his ***.
