Fuck that sucks.
I only feel bad for Anthony Pettis, he's had to wait so long.

i wouldn't mind an interim belt here


PuertoRican   United States. May 09 2011 18:23. Posts 5621

According to this post, they can meet as early as August or September: http://mmajunkie.com/news/23540/edgar...et-as-soon-as-august-or-september.mma

Jim Miller fought and won his match on March 19th.
So basically we have Anthony Pettis vs. Clay Guida on June 4th.
Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard in August or September at the earliest.

1. So basically if Anthony Pettis wins vs. Clay Guida, we'll see Pettis vs. Edgar/Maynard in December/January at the earliest. (guesstimate)
2. Then, after the winner of Pettis vs. Edgar/Maynard is over, the earliest another title shot would be April/May. (guesstimate)
3. Jim Miller will have 13-14 months of waiting time, so we can see him take 1 more fight and then just wait around for awhile, or possibly take 2 fights, but taking just 1 fight and laying low is his best bet, but either way he has to wait so long to fight for a title shot that 2 other people have to fight for first.

Thoughts?

MMA movie theme - " I'm forced to fight because ..."
- i want revenge for my (father/fight buddy/brother/wife) death or hospitalized in critical condition
- to pay back what my (father/fight buddy/brother/wife) owes these guys


MMA documentary theme - "It's a hard life really..."
- no, really man, we're all white here but it's still a tough sport
- i grew up in a farm and got a free college education because of wrestling and decided to do this fight club thing for a living now I'm broke
- even though i get twice the recognition and pay for the same amount of hard work a boxer does, it's really tougher because we white guys deserve better in life unlike those black/hispanic boxing guys

i dunno what is the average pro boxer's salary? i read/saw somewhere that an mma fighters is 11k a year.

pro boxers dont even get paid nothing and lets face it, its hard to get boxing events running if ever at all, most boxers will never get paid 11k a year. usually boxers get close to nothing but you never see a documentary about them complaining about it since most of them come from really poor backgrounds and/or work a regular job to support themselves.
its different from country to country but i lived near a boxing stable before and got to be friends with a lot of them and asked about hwo much they made, how they regularly fix fights etc, it was really the worst living conditions, plus their food was crap. i dont blame boxers trying to make the switch to MMA, but this kind of working condition has been in boxing culture since forever.

I like MMA though, just that I get why boxers and boxing fans are semi-bitter about the MMA fighting thing. Also i find the movies and documentaries mostly bad, except for 1 or 2.

If UFC paid a tad more for their fights I think the level of competition would increase because 1) fighters will have more time training, less time working jobs 2) More people joining MMA competitions

I'm pretty sure they are doing really well right now, but obviously I dont have access to their records

Jim Miller vs Ben Henderson set!

I feel bad that Miller isn't getting a shot yet, but that's the LW division for you and he'll probably beat Bendo. I'm thinking some sort of finish too! he brings the noise too hard for it to go to a decision

Brock Lesnar out of UFC 131, Junior Dos Santos now faces Shane Carwin!
http://mmajunkie.com/news/23586/brock...dos-santos-now-faces-shane-carwin.mma

Sick news. Boxer/bjj vs. boxer/wrestler.

Apparently a bunch of people are posting how they expected this. They think Brock Lesnar's name was used to draw people to watch the TUF 13 show. That would make sense why Shane Carwin was originally given an opponent to face by the name of Jon Olav Einemo (6-1) who hasn't fought since November 2006. It's pretty easy to scrap that fight and not have to find a replacement for Jon Olav Einemo while Carwin easily steps in for Lesnar.

Thoughts?

Oops, UFC on a downswing?

First Edgar and Maynard now Lesnar, damn.

Btw Carwin opened at +190 which i think will go down as the fight nears, he looked slimmer 2 weeks ago at UFC 129, maybe he has some cardio now lol.

Jones declines surgery, could still face Evans before year's end. Rather than fixing his hand now, he'd rather skip surgery since it's optional, and face future hand pains and possibly hurt his hand further in the future. So Rashad steps to him after he beats Shogun, then Jones vs. Evans is set, Jones pulls out because he hurt his hand, then Evans vs. Davis is set, now Jones says he wants to skip the surgery which he is now told is optional and says he can fight later this year. It makes no sense to not get the surgery now and have your hand be fixed for the future since its the smart thing to do and especially since your competition will be fighting during that time.

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Vladimir Matyushenko in the works for UFC 133 in August. (This should happen since there's nobody else to match them up with atm.)

Former WEC vice president Peter Dropick has replaced Scott Coker as Strikeforce's No. 1 guy, and UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby has taken over matchmaking duties. Only Coker and his assistant remain as full-time employees according to several recent reports.
