I srsly want Rampage to win but Jones will fuck him up. Also what he needs to work on is his heart and stamina coz he has got to be one of the worst in that area. If he just had the confidence it would be a great fight.


Mariuslol   Norway. Aug 13 2011 00:27. Posts 4742

If Jones trains as hard as it seemed he had been doing up till now, I think he'll win as well, pretty convincingly. Maybe if Rampage isn't bullshitting and is training the hardest he ever has, it might be a lot more exciting though, weird he beat lyoto, can't quite remember the fight, but think I thought it was weird he got that win, either way, hope for good fights <3


CamilaPunt   Brasil. Aug 13 2011 07:00. Posts 2383

jones could probably not train a single day till the fight and win fairly easy
i would be extremely surprised if jones-rampage was anything besides a humiliating fight... please dont try to hype this fight it will be extremely one sided even though i want a miracle win for rampage

Things to think about an Alistair Overeem vs. Brock Lesnar match:

- Overeem is asking for the highest profile heavyweight in the UFC, the UFC are happy to oblige.
- Overeem is on a 10 fight win streak, but they're all against opponents who like to stand and bang and aren't as good at it as he is. He submitted 5 of those 10 guys.
- Overeem cant go a full 3 rounds in MMA without gassing, he slows down mid-late 2nd round, and he's only had 3 fights that went to the 3rd round in his 47 fight MMA career. (He was barely able to talk in the interview after he won, and he spent a lot of time deflecting Werdum's weak attempts to go to the ground and he was also standing up and waiting for Werdum a lot, so him gassing was weird since they didn't fight a lot.)
- Overeem vs. Werdum was the Reem's only 3 round MMA fight since his 3 round unanimous decision win over Vitor Belfort in June 2006. (videos below)
- I do believe that Overeem has decent BJJ like high profile fighters/trainers/news people have said. (16 of his 35 wins via submission, but the only known guys he submitted were Vitor Belfor and Paul Buentello, the rest were cans/nobodies.)
- Overeem has never faced a good wrestler, let alone a top wrestler.
- Brock has shown he can take a lot of punishment to the face and wont get knocked out.
- Overeem would have a tough time against the strength, size, movement, ability to go at least 3 rounds without gassing, although this would be a 5 round fight with the UFC's new rules for main event non-title matches.
- Brock is a good wrestler, wrestling is often referred to as the best MMA base to have out of all the fighting style. That being said, Overeem is known for his knees and Thai plum that he puts people in to deliver said knees, but as you can see in his fight vs. Vitor Belfort, if your opponent knows you use knees a lot he can catch your leg and pick you up in the air and slam you to the ground where he'll be on top pounding you.
- Overeem's main fighting style comes from his Dutch background, where they train everyday for big events such as K-1. In K-1, fights are crazy but they stand in front of each other and attack, you can see Alistair always waiting to get directly in front of his opponent when he throws punches and kicks, he doesn't have any foot-work like you would see boxers or some top strikers in MMA have, he keeps coming forward at you until he finds the best time to setup his base and attack.
- This is literally the perfect fight that the UFC could dream of. The UFC gets:
1. The only top heavyweight that's not signed by the UFC.
2. All of this international fame that Overeem brings plus all of the fame Brock brings.
3. The true Strikeforce heavyweight champion, even though he doesn't have the belt anymore.
4. A guy that is thought to be the most feared striker in the world with no wrestling ability.
5. A way to finally close the chapter on the UFC really having the best fighters in the world and there wont be anyone left outside of the organization that could come close to the skill and fame as their fighters.
6. If Overeem fights and loses to Brock, I wouldn't be surprised if they cut him or give him another good ground guy to lose to like Shane Carwin or Frank Mir.

I want and hope Alistair Overeem would come to the UFC and win the title, but against guys like Brock Lesnar who has mediocre striking but the ability to take you down at anytime due to his size and strength, Cain Velasquez who's good at striking and wrestling, then Junior Dos Santos who has massive power in his hands and has good foot-work and doesn't usually gas out, it will be a tough road to the top for The Reem if he really wanted to prove he was the best. (Overeem personally said that only Cain and JDS are above him in the heavyweight rankings.)

UFC announces seven-year deal with FOX, debuts live with its first event on November 12th


UFC and FOX officials today announced a new seven-year, multimedia-rights agreement that includes four live events broadcast in prime time on FOX, as well as four to six live events each year on FOX's cable network, FX.

FX and FUEL TV also will broadcast extensive UFC programming, including live fights, pre- and post-event shows, countdown shows, "UFC Unleashed," "UFC Primetime," "UFC Knockouts," "Best of PRIDE" and weigh-in specials, as well as "The Ultimate Fighter reality series," which will now feature live fights and fan-voted matchups during two annual seasons.

The UFC's first FOX-broadcast event takes place Nov. 12. UFC president Dana White said the likely host city for the event is Anaheim, Calif. He did not reveal any fights for the card.

"We're excited to be part of the FOX family," White stated in an official release. "The UFC is finally where it belongs on the No. 1 network in the country and aligned with the most prestigious sports properties in the world. I've always said that the UFC will be the biggest sport in the world, and with this relationship it will become a reality."

As the UFC previously announced, FOX Deportes also will feature UFC programming.

"My brother Frank, Dana and I always believed that our passion for the sport of mixed martial arts would help us to build the UFC into a successful global brand and ultimately make it one of the premier sports properties in the world," UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta stated. "The partnership with FOX is a major step in making this a reality and also builds on the great relationship that we already have established with FOX in Latin America, Australia and Europe."

----------

- Is FOX the largest sports network? Yes! They show the NFL, MLB, NASCAR, NCAA Football including the BCS, they also own various regional sports networks including The Big Ten Network, Fox Soccer Channel, Speed Channel and Fox College Sports and now the UFC.

- Dana White gives the breakdown on the whole deal in his interview with Karyn Bryant.
+ Show Spoiler +



- The first announced fight for UFC's first show on Fox is Dustin Poirier vs. Pablo Garza.

- How much is FOX paying the UFC annually for its seven-year deal made official today? Around an average of $100 million per year, according to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal. When compared to the deal the UFC had with Spike, for around $35 million per year.

- Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan will call the events on FOX and FX, but now there's a lot more work to do since this will be a bigger production, so the UFC/Fox will be bringing in additional people.

Lesnar wouldn't gas in a 3 round fight vs. Overeem (although they would be fighting in a 5 round non-title fight), if he felt the need to get his energy back he could take Overeem down at ease and eat a punch going for the take down if necessary. I've watched Lesnar's boxing get slightly better in each of his UFC fights, and while it's not great, it is improving with each fight. My problem with Overeem is how he needs to setup his Muay Thai base before attacking you. I do like the fact that Overeem showed some good TDD against Werdum, but Werdum doesn't have the power and strength that Lesnar has and Werdum never tried any wrestling take downs.

Russians favor the 1 vs 10 man fighting style and are often focused about explosivenes in their strikes.

lesnar will eat a strike to take him down, what lesnar have you been watching, he cant take a punch from much weaker strikers, how on earth is he going to eat a punch from a guy who punches way harder than he has ever been hit
