But Uriah Hall will take it nonetheless.

Sonnen and Jones asked for Samman vs Hall in the semi-final but Josh sweet talked his way out of an ass kicking.

Too bad Dana fell for it, I would've loved to see Hall beat down Josh.

Is anyone else kind of pissed that the coaches aren't fighting on this card?

The card is good... But still.. They should be fighting on it too. It's part of the show.

No way they put Jones on a televised card and no way in hell they put Sonnen on one. Those two are PPV beasts right now.

Uriah H looked very awkward. Almost too cocky. Good on Kelvin though.

And holy illegal elbows Batman!! (Browne/Gonzaga)

Hall seemed to hesitant and like he didn't want to be there. It was an awkward fight. I personally had it at a draw, i'm thinking Kelvins final take down ended up as the difference.

Also heard an interesting rumor that Hall may have tanked the fight in order to negotiate a better contract with the UFC as the TUF 6 figure deal isn't the greatest.

Here's some details that were posted in regards to what Kelvins new contract could look like:

The winners of the first three seasons of The Ultimate Fighter competition, and certain runners-up depending on their performance in their competition finals, receive the touted "six-figure" contract to fight in the UFC. These contracts are specifically three-year contracts with a guaranteed first year. Each year consists of three fights, the first year's purse per fight consists of $12,000 guaranteed with a $12,000 win bonus (a maximum of $24,000 per fight), the second year's purse per fight is $16,000 with a $16,000 win bonus (a maximum of $32,000 per fight) and the third year's purse per fight is at $22,000 with a $22,000 win bonus (a maximum of $44,000 per fight). A TUF winner who goes 9-0 can earn $300,000 total on the contract, but only $150,000 is guaranteed for all three years if 9 fights are fought. Those that have not won the competition can still fight in the UFC. Their contracts however are not the same as the six-figure deal above.

Hall didn't even look like he was trying. He was doing the Anderson Silva hands at his waist and back on the fence just dodging punches like they were nothing.

UFC on Fox this Saturday is going to be sick though.

Lightweight title fight.
Cormier vs Mir
Nate Diaz and Jordan Mien are on the card as well, separate fights.

Matt Brown is vicious, but was disappointed in how Mein fought. Hands way down low against a brawler like that. Surprised he made it to round two.

Sooooo nice to see a Diaz bro get smashed like that. Douche!

Mir is pathetic. Will officially never compete for the title again.

I had Melendez winning rounds 1, 2, and 5. But that's just me. Too close to call so I guess give it to the champ?

Melendez and Henderson needs a rematch.

Also for those who watch boxing, should be a rematch for Alvarez and Trout as well.

Both challengers got screwed by poor judging. If any thing they they should have been draws.

Fallon Fox, a man turned woman is a mma fighter.
Should it be allowed or no? A bunch of UFC'rs weighed in

http://sports.yahoo....00716--mma.html

GSP weighed in on OTR but he sort of just didnt answer the question, clearly against it but didnt want to say anything. Lansberg was like here I'll set it up for you and you just agree "I George St.Pierre support transgendered fighters in the UFC" or whatever and GSP just laughed awkwardly and they changed topics.

I'm with Joe Rogan on this one. It's pretty much a man beating on women, should not be allowed.

Just saw a slow motion view of Jon Jones breaking his toe. It almost snapped off, sickening.

Pat Healey lost 130K for testing positive for marihuana. Then You have guys like Vitor Belfort using TRT to make themselves 20 years old again and getting title shots.
