Lyoto turned down the fight as well. Said he doesnt feel he has enough time to prepare properly. They should just try getting Stephan Bonnar or Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

And again as someone said Hector Lombard is under the champions clause but it would be awesome to get him in the UFC. He is nasty as fuck. Bellator has a shitload of talent that would be epic if some of it went to the ufc. Take Eddie Alvarez for example. I think the dude would be a huge force in the UFC lightweight division but he is also under the clause.

Stephan Bonnar needs to retire. He'll never be a force in his division.

Little Nog vs Rashad would be decent. I don't know, it's for title elimination. Lyoto should have grabbed this opportunity. He already raped Rashad once.

P.S. - Mirko Cro Cop vs Roy 'Big Country' Nelson confirmed: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/mma/p...c-137/176827/1

Its official. Tito Ortiz has stepped up to fight Rashad Evans. Wooh son! f.cking hate Rashad. Hope Tito beats his f.cking ass. If he does that sh.t will really push him forward. Would be awesome for someone who was inches from being cut from UFC.

Wow. If Tito wins it'll be the upset of the century, and Rashad will surely enter the MMA hall of shame.

haha, Tito. yeah that would be terrible for rashad, he'll be sitting on the bench of shame next to Bader . I think Gayshad's got this, though.

and to be totally honest, I'm scared for mirko.

schaub > mirko (KO)
Nelson > schaub (KO 1st round) or 2nd

I like mirko a lot, believe me, but I see him getting knocked the f..k out.. again. he isn't the same as he was in pride, it's too bad.

Just throwing this out there, because it needs to be said.

Fedor is the greatest mixed martial artist to date. His body of work is so near perfection that it's scary. So many World Combat Sambo Championships. So many UFC champions defeated. So many come from behind victories. Blindingly fast hands, top-notch foot work and balance, world class Jiu-Jitsu. He's never in his entire career been in ONE boring fight. The first person to stop Nogueira in his prime. Look at what he did to Tim Sylvia. Kevin Randleman suplexed his head through the mat and he turned that around.

He got caught in a triangle from a sneaky weasel who happens to be one of best BJJ practioners on Planet Earth, and then a gorilla with acromegaly layed on top of him and cudgeled his face in for a few minutes. The guy still wanted to fight. A doctor prohibiting him from doing so isn't a mark of a fighter past his prime, it's just bad luck.

sh.t, Cain Velasquez even thinks he's the best.

If he loses to Henderson, I'll gladly concede and agree he's seen better days. Until then, I don't want to see him stop. He's the one of the most admirable human beings on this planet. Regardless of all the hate that gets thrown his way, he's humble through it all. Much less can be said of Alistair Overeem, Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir, and any other pompous fuck who thinks they're the champion of the world. Walk through Fedor and I'll believe it.

Carlos Condit and B.J. Penn appear to be headed to Las Vegas.

The pivotal welterweight match-up has been targeted as the co-main event for UFC 137 on Oct 29 in Las Vegas alongside the welterweight title fight between champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Nick Diaz.

Sources close to the bout confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that the fighters have agreed to the date and are currently awaiting final bout agreements from the UFC.

The two welterweights essentially agreed to face each other while bantering on Twitter, and within moments the UFC had made the call to put them in the Octagon together.

B.J. Penn actually suggested the Oct 29 date when responding to Condit, and it looks like the former welterweight champion is going to get his wish.

The bout between Condit and Penn could very well determine the next challenger for the belt, and itís convenient that the welterweight title will be on the line that very same night.

More fights are expected to be announced in the coming weeks to fill the undercard for UFC 137.
