Ye I saw that, have zero ground game and a suspect chin - see Seth Petruzelli fight - means he'll struggle against any wrestler. Setanta looks like it is in serious trouble, don't know what that will mean for Magners League and UFC...

Yeah I Youtubed that fight yesterday. Then read about Setanta going into administration. Is an ESPN buy-out likely? Setanta really blew their load on the soccerball. Waste of money.

Anyone see the way Bisping is behaving on TUF? He's acting like a complete chav/thug. Got love him! Winding up the Americans something rotten.

'Acting' like a chav/thug. What exactly do you think Bisping is? He's a total scumbag and I cannot wait till UFC 100 when Hendo beats the fock out of im :twisted:

I too hope that Hendo will beat him like a red headed stepchild (apologies to any gingers out there!) I'm part Septic Tank so there is no way I would cheer for that chav over Hendo.

This in on the free Setanta channel. A good jumping off point for new fans.

Cro Cop should consider dropping down to light heavyweight. He looks like his walk around weight is what he fights at. He could easily cut to 205lb and then fight on the day at around 220. I think the Yanks have the edge over the European and Japanese fighters when it comes to the science of weight cutting. I think this is due to many of their guys having roots in amateur wrestling.

Swick was good for a while until he met that Chinese/japense dude.

Was so dissappointed when Cro-Cop got beaten by Gonzaga and then Congo. One of my favourite fighters.


I hope Bisping hammers Henderson, and think he will. Why won't you two leave him alone! He has a sense of humour unlike Henderson who is borderline punch drunk.

Bisping will be punch drunk after they fight, Hendo by ground and pound stoppage in the second :wink:

Have to record UFC 99. I hope CroCop has a comeback and that Davis and Franklin do the business as well.

Yep, i really enjoyed the event, not one for the casual fan as there were a lot of technical battles but a very enjoyable night all round i thought. I wont type thoughts on specific fights yet in case people are trying to avoid results and the like

Defo not one for the casual fan. I have to say the main event was an absolute cracker. Disappointed with some results and bit annoyed with one. Won't say which one...yet. Another fight I'm looking forward to is UFC101, Florian Versus Penn. That should be a great fight.

It would seem that way yes.

No word yet on the provider of UFC 100, highly likely that it will be on either Virgin 1(current fav so I believe) or Bravo with a longer term provider from 101 on such as ESPN or Sky. Also I have read that the buildup show for 100 is supposed to be great...cut n pasted :

They show
Brock the footage of Mir tapping him out, and Brock gets more and more angry at referee Steve Mazzagatti and finally
SNAPS~!, saying "THIS INTERVIEW IS OVER!!," storming off, and then punching his wall so hard that the adjoining
door falls off the hinges. Said to be must-see TV, and if that scene looks anything like it reads then this show is doing
1.5 million buys easy.
