I'm excited for Thomas de Almeida's UFC debut. If he stays upright, he might take Tim Gorman to the woodshed.

I'm pumped for both.

Thomas has been on a tear on the smaller shows for a while now and he's still relatively young.

I'm picking OSP to destroy Shogun.  Shogun is too inconsistent with his performance to give me faith in picking him to win.

St. Preux is pretty damn inconsistent himself. He can handle guys like Krylov and people who work on an Alaskan oil rig like TJ Cook. But guys semi-decent will always give him trouble.

In a surprise to no one, John Lineker missed weight.

Still has time to make it if he chooses to reweigh.

 

Anyway, one day people will realize I actually bother to watch weigh-ins for the event threads. One day. :(

Francimar "Bodao" received his show money since he lost out on the OSP fight. He also weighed in just in case one of the main eventers falls out.

Ian McCall has fallen ill and may not be able to fight tomorrow night. The decision will be made in the morning on whether he can fight or not.

Speaking of inconsistency...

It seems like Ian gets injured every time he has a fight scheduled.

Thomas de Almeida will either be slightly better Edson Barboza with better cardio or a legit top BW within 2 or 3 years. It is only either/or. No in between if he stays with his current camp. You see the potential and also the several mistakes he makes. The learning curve inside the UFC is going to be quite interesting to follow.

Watched part of the first round of Rivas/Rubio and it was bad enough I turned away from it.

Not really surprising though as most of these Latin American guys haven't really developed that much as fighters despite the amount of fights on their records.

And I gave up on this card thanks to the aforementioned fight and Ju Thai/Ansaroff.

I would like to say that this proves that Shogun should give it up but since the UFC has to promote these useless Fight Night shows I am sure they will drag him out there for another slaughter

I don't think I've ever seen more depressed after a fight than I am right now. Shogun needs to retire, he turned into Mr. Magoo.

OSP!!!

 

Where was that guy when he fought Bader?

Well, Bader was smart enough to not leap headlong into punches like he did against Machida and Glover and do what Shogun did tonight. Sometimes, you need a few wakeup calls (or brief in-cage power naps) to get the message.

That is officially the fastest Shogun has been KO'd in his career.

Goodnight sweet prince Shogun.  May hosts of angels sing you to sleep.  Time for Shogun to retire.

I believe it was posted before on here that they were not going to be fighting each other.
