I use to think Bisping was an alright guy but the UFC babying him has made him arrogant. After the fight against Hamil the count said that Hamil should stick to wrestling. Disrespect to a guy who just beat the crap out of him in the octagon. Then in the post fight conference, someone from the media asked him if he actually thought he won. Bisping said something along the lines of , "of course i did, do you fight MMA, do you know what you're talking about, shut the F up"

I think the bottom line is that Bisping sells tickets in the UK and thats why they are hyping him up. So they can do another show down there. I think Bisping can beat Evans, and vice versa, but these 2 are not legit contenders. Winner gets Rampage? err.. i don't think so. None of these guys have faced much top talent. Let them fight chuck liddell, the axe murder silva, shogun or forest griffin. Just seems like these 2 hit the warp level in super mario. bypassed everything else to the top. UFC is trying to hard to sell TUF as legit contenders and Bisping as UK's hero.


Yah exactly.. does it even matter who wins this fight? Quote me on it, neither of these guys will ever be the champ in the light heavyweight division. They have nice records and that it's. Bisping versus Jackson? F'in murder.

I do hope Evans wins though because Bisping is a cocky ????, and Hamil beat the tar out of him. I lost a lot of respect for the UFC over that fight, because that was pretty blatantly a fixed fight.

CMON GUYS HAVE SOME FAITH! WE ARE GOING TO WIN. ANYONE CAN QUOTE ME ON THAT IF THEY WANT. YOULL SEE

Dana White said that the winner of this will be a top 5 light heavyweight :wacko:

two bottom 10's fight each other and the winner becomes top 5. But then again can anyone take Dana seriously when he has a vested interested in this fight. Hes forcing TUF grads to be looked upon as champions. He said Fedor is not even a top 5 heavyweight and yet Big Nog is considered the top contender, someone Fedor smoked 3x.

pure nuttyness!

A tuffer is someone who follows UFC because of the The Ultimate Fighter show Also known as TUF. People who think they know about MMA because they followed this are known as Tuffers. People who think Dana White is cool and believe the words that come out of his mouth normally fall into this category. These people will also not know anything about MMA except for the UFC.

If you are looking for a place to learn about MMA you can try the Sherdog forums. It is very rambunctious, but they do have some posters that are very knowledgeable. Being a Noob can be tough there at the beginning but it can also be a lot of fun. Check it out.


Gotcha, I guess I'm carbon copy "tuffer." I didn't follow the UFC or MMA until TUF Season 1.

I'd definitely watch more MMA if it were more accessible.

I didn't get ripped off, I went to the bar and had some beers and a great burger and also got to watch the fights. Win-win-win for me.

That's right, daddy!



You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'

Sherdog has about as many "Tuffers" as it does knowledgeable fans.

Bisping was completely exposed for what he was. "Hype" He lost to a guy that didn't even fight.

I posted on sherdog a couple of times. I was banned for making a thread about a tickling manoeuver i developed. Where a guy can tickle when in the guard and then in the clinch to get a take down.

Seems the mods there lack humour. When i logged in an automatic message said:

BANNED!
Timelimit: Forever

:lol:

yeah it just basically turned into a wrestling match. Bisping gets up, Rashad throws him to the ground, Bisping gets up, Rashad throw him to the ground. Repeat over and over.

I think Main Event matches should be 5 rounds. 3 seem to suck as a main draw.

That is funny actually. But they don't IP ban you unless you really deserve it so making a new name is pretty simple. It is probably the busiest forum I use regularly, so I understand why they ban so easily there. There is always some excitement going on there. You can go there at anytime day or night and have about 2000 keyboard warriors online. :)

Yeah that place is super busy. I think they need more mods because that place is out of control.

People will make 10 fedor vs couture, Liddell vs Silva, GSP vs Fitch etc threads. Its so redundant.

That forum is almost too busy. You can make a thread, and then hit refresh and its already on the 2nd page, wait 2 minutes, hit refresh and its on the third page and no one got a change to read it.

I probably wont make another account. I just go there to read the latest news.

damn this sucks matt serra will NOT be fighting matt hughes for the title. Serra got a back injury and will be out of action. So georges St. Pierre will fight Matt Hughes in his place with the winner between hughes and st.pierre fighting serra for the title.

bad news because of the hughes serra rivalry but good news since st.pierre is candian and is fun to watch fight.

Tonite's freeebie on Spike was just awesome. Two amazing fights (Huerta vs Guida and Koppenhaver vs Rollins), not to mention my boy Danzig dominating the farm boy.

I'm psyched for UFC 79. I'm gonna be down in SoCal for it, in Liddell's stomping grounds. And I'm gonna cheer for SILVA!!!
