For the next two weeks after TUF they're doing the build up to Rashad vs Rampage. The first one was this past Wednesday, im pretty sure you can see it at UFC.com if you missed it. It's pretty entertaining stuff.

I got featured on Insider Moves on Inside Xbox this week

Those videos a terrible tbh, and the whole drama fighters create to sale more tickets is just getting dumb now. You can see the terrible acting and it always ends the same way. The talk soooo much shit, nearly get into a fist fight before the official fight, then they fight in the octagon, and finally after the fight they end up kissing and congratulating each other like they didn't just hate each other a few minutes ago.

I swear it's turning into a WWE-esque soap opera now, just for a few more sales I guess.

Yes I would love to see Fedor in the UFC. And while I agree the UFC has the best talent pool, there is no doubt that the UFC also hypes up some fighters like a motherfucker.

Again I agree with you, but I still don't think Fedor has much say in it.

He was arguably beating Fedor before getting KTFO. And there are plently of fighters in the UFC who are considered good or great that lack "credible" wins. Or if you want to go off sherdog rankings like Riot, he is in the heavyweight top 10. Not that those are really official.

And I hope he kills Overroid.

Long been rumored and accused of Fedor and M-1 having mafia ties..

i agree with you on this..they take it too far sometimes, but i admit i like to hear what they have to say and know where/ how they're training, etc etc.

edit: i watched overeem vs rogers earlier today and I'm glad to see Rogers loose lol. he talked sh.t about Alistair and he pretty much got dominated & lost again in the first round. now all that's left is for Fedor to beat Werdum, and then it will hopefully finally be Fedor vs. Overeem

edit 2: I made a couple changes on the 2nd post on the 1st page.. let me know if its good and let me know if you'd like to see anything there. it's pretty much to add whatever will make this thread better while still keeping it organized

I enjoy the pre-fight stuff. I like to see the training going on and the insight into the fighters worlds.


these dudes seriously don't like each other...and this sh.t is pretty funny.
