  1. Well, it's in Southern Cali and Tito and Rampage are based there. They'll have some other SoCal fighters to fill the undercard. It should do okay.
  2. FANTASY BOOKING Hank goes into denial that his brother-in-law is a meth titan and unintentionally brings someone back into play to get rid of Walter and Jesse. I could see Hank letting Marie know and Marie freaks out. Skyler pretends like she doesn't know when Marie brings it up to her. Skyler lets Walter know and Walter secretly plots Marie's death (and Hank later on) behind Skyler's back. Todd probably gets caught and helps the DEA break the case. Thus, Walter has to hide from everyone before he can kill Hank.
  3. If there is any division in MMA where someone can make an immediate impact in one fight, it's the heavyweight division. Fedor Emelianenko hasn't had a quality win in four and a half years and could be a top 5 fighter if he unretired and signed with the UFC tomorrow.
  4. Chael is getting licensed per Steve Marrocco at MMAJunkie, so the fight is still on.
  5. Erick Silva vs. DHK and Jeremy Stephens vs. Rony Jason on October 9 at Fight Night 29 in Brazil.
  7. He might have a chance to be in the main event depending on what happens tomorrow. http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/08/still-unlicensed-for-ufc-fight-night-26-chael-sonnen-awaits-commissions-ruling?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  8. The rest is here at Deadspin. I have no problem with Mike or Jemele Hill, but Hugh Douglas is the ONLY reason to even have your television on ESPN2 at that time of day. The ratings for NNL aren't too hot to begin with so I can't imagine who would stick around for just those two.
  9. Sixty year old Bruce Willis is a failure because he isn't in Expendables 3. Got it, Sylvester.
  10. This is the official debut event of anything for FS1, isn't it? And the prelims are on the same station? Yep. Apparently, it's a five hour card on FS1 with ten fights.
  11. You're black? Thought the only black guys around here were J.T. and madcap. Learn something new every day. Add supremebve to that if I'm not mistaken.
  12. Does the Clark Kent Superman reveal fit into this? I would like for that to be banned.
  13. That's probably because none of the big names got injured, but they still have a few days left for someone to roll an ankle or something.

  15. I have no delusions. I am really excited about the defense with the new coaches they brought in but I'm wary of how small the line is. And I'm really excited about Jason Garrett not calling the plays. In no way do I think they're going to do anything in the postseason though. I'd be happy if they just improved on their record last year and maybe just made the playoffs. The o-line is still a big question mark. I don't watch alot of cowboy games, but Garrett looked really creey last night. He was a walking billboard for the souless ginger stereotype. . . For someone who only won a preseason game, he was grinning like the Cheshire cat after it was over. Either he is up to something dastardly or he is really happy he got to play the Youtube trick shot guy for a long time.

  18. PLEASE READ EVERYTHING I HAVE TYPED BELOW BEFORE DOING ANYTHING -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RANKING SELECTION RULES AND REGULATIONS 1. The Dominick Cruz rule is in effect. Anyone who hasn't fought in a year will not be ranked so don't list that fighter. This includes Mr. Eddie Alvarez, who definitely will not fight before October 12, 2013. 2. The Cris Cyborg rule is also in effect. You can't rank any fighter in a division they are currently not fighting in. If they last fought in the lightweight division and drop to featherweight, they are not considered a featherweight fighter until they officially make weight in their next fight. Chael Sonnen is a light heavyweight until he makes weight at middleweight again. 3. Use your best judgement for the P4P rankings. You know damn well that Gegard Mousasi is not one of the ten best fighters in the ENTIRE world. Neither is Ronda Rousey. No women are allowed yet because none of them have accrued enough major victories to be considered. If I start seeing some wild P4P rankings, then I am shutting that whole thing down and basing it off divisional rankings from this thread. Yeah, I am not listening to the "P4P rankings are subjective" blah blah. 4. You don't have to rank every division. Do as many as you want. However, keep in mind that I might pick people for a ranking committee. If you just do divisions you care about and/or half-ass some of them (FSW, looking at you), you don't have to worry about the whole ranking committee thing. I am still undecided on whether or not to have a ranking committee. It depends how smoothly this goes. 5. Please use the template(s) I've provided below. I am not sure if this board has the same character restriction the other one had, so beware of that. 6. Only provide the names of the fighters in your rankings. I'll handle the other information (team, records, next and previous bouts, etc.) 7. You can make changes as different shows are happening up to and during UFN 28: Teixeira vs. Bader. I warn you to not make drastic changes to your lists unless you're sure. 8. The rankings I will post on September 1 will be based on the averages (both P4P and divisional) from all the lists in this thread. For example, Vitor Belfort receives 6 third place votes and 5 fourth place votes while Mark Munoz gets 5 third place votes and six fourth place votes. Belfort gets the #3 spot (3.45), and Munoz gets #4 spot (3.55). Anything closer will be decided by me. Simple as that. 9. I have provided the number one fighters because I don't think there is (and shouldn't be) any debate who is the best in those divisions. 10. Please try to keep the discussion of any rankings in this thread respectful. You'll receive one warning after this from me and that'll be it. The deadline is September 5, 2013, midnight CST after UFN 28 goes off the air. So you have a hour or so to make changes if you feel like it. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  19. Yeah, I saw Marchman bitching on Twitter. Grantland and Deadspin waste too much money (by too much, I mean anything over $5) on people writing 2-4 shitty paragraphs. This is a good example.
