LETS start out in a corner that ISN'T exactly MMA...Badr Hari, esteemed Kick-Boxer and known 'Bad-Body' is seemingly being charged with attempted Man-Slaughter, after someone who I'll call "Victim" was beaten by three men, violently, the climax being that one of the three men was identified by the man as Badr, who then snapped his ankle in half with a well placed stomp (apparently Hari really was training MMA). Someone needs to put this guy in jail man...It's a fucking joke letting a basket case like this fight. He needs a prison cell never mind a gym mat. In other news, Nick Diaz has reportedly announced his "UN-Retirement", boldly claiming he wants Anderson Silva next. Cesar Gracie had this to say on behalf of his student: Nick Diaz shoudln't give up on GSP so fast...Anyways, Diaz is just one of those fat smelly babies no one likes, aka that kid that wants something only because you have it...Now he wants to switch divisions? Settle down young man and finish a UFC fight. Something I believe GSP has more of in the UFC than Diaz. sketchhuh LASTLY, Anderson Silva's management has stated they aren't happy with the contenders out there currently (in the UFC) @ Middleweight. It isn't that they are bad, it's more marketability and consequence. What does Anderson really have to earn? If he Knocks you out will you just be forgotten or have you built a dynasty like he has? Ed Soares, Silva's manager, had this to say on his fighters current situation: I have to agree with Ed here, and that probably won't happen very often. Guys like Chris Weidman have that immediate title-shot demeanor, destroying named opponents left and right, but the kid is still young. With a little more growth he could be something more than a highlight reel KO for Silva. He still hasn't faced that 2's and 3's of the Middleweight division. Boestch as well, looks tremendous on paper, but he just now took down his first real competition at middleweight, with Yushin and Hector. HE HAS earned a TOP LEVEL opponent with that, BUT not a title shot, lets keep in mind both Yushin and Hector were scheduled to fight an entirely different fighter beforehand. Luke Rockhold, and more importantly Georges, provide a belt, and a fan-following with it. If your a champ in either Strikeforce or the UFC, people believe in you, and you have started some sort of legacy, be it big or small. YOU need to have something like THAT to put up against Silva at this point. That or a win streak that is knocking on the champions door. THOUGHTS folks??
