Sad that Bader doesn't even make the posters anymore. Shogun needs a win in the worst way possible.

Bader is right where he should be. He will lose to upper tier guys in ways that will allow them to get title shots and destroy lower tier gatekeepers. That's what you want out of someone like him.

Shogun being in a semi-main on a B (at best) TV card makes me sad. Hopefully this leads to bigger things for him, because if he loses this...yeah just retire man. Or take whatever dump truck full of money Viacom offers up and go to Bellator.

There aren't any bigger things for him on the horizon.  He's been done for a while now.  I don't even think the talent level matters as much any more.  Even in fights against a scrub that he might win he will take damage because his speed is completely gone and he has no defense.

Mark Hunt really is the highlight of the heavyweight division. I can't think of anyone whose matches I anticipate more. Certainly there are better fighters, and I'd like to see how much success Werdum and Barnett can have, but in a division that promises a couple of years of JDS/Velasquez domination, Hunt is really the guy who makes things interesting.

Strictly speaking, doesn't that make him the gatekeeper? He keeps out the people who don't belong, but doesn't quite eat at the top table himself.

I guess you could say that, but the turnover for gatekeepers in MMA is much higher now than six years ago. A guy can go from being a title contender to out of the UFC in a matter of two fights (see: Grispi, Josh). Gatekeepers in boxing would be able to stay on television for at least five or six years based on one or two performances. Ike Quartey fought Oscar and Fernando Vargas, took a long hiatus, and then came back to fight on HBO again. Also-ran would probably be a better term for Ryan Bader.

UFC successfully debuted their first clone tonight with Alex Garcia from the Hector Lombard strain.

Shogun gave Te Huna the death touch. That was nasty.

That knockout was the thing video game animators tweak for 4 months to get the body crumple just so.

Those two big sum'bitches gave it their all. Awesome.

 

The fight needed a concussion counter.

 

Edit: ... huh?
