    yeah wow I didn't even catch the shirt until now.
    I WISH I picked that guy man,
    I almost felt like he was going to win,
    but I had NEVER seen him fight and wasn't sure what type of fighter he was.
    MAYBE next time I'll check fighter Highlights.

    Well Tavares is no slouch so it was never a given either way. I got the vibe to change my pick only because of the balls on the guy. He wasn't about to get bullied in there so even if he lost it would've been a battle.

    Yep!!


    Probably...unless Rashad can be enticed into the ill-advised decision to fight Anderson presuming he beats Lil Nog, which I think and hope that he will. I think Rashad would have more problems vs Anderson than he did vs Jones, and I think Anderson will stop Rashad in 4. I hope Rashad decides to hold on until Jones climbs up to HW at this year's end, and then runs for the LHW title probably vs Machida in December.

    ^there are news articlesa out right now quoting Rashad saying he could beat Anderson,
    and would love the chance to fight him before his career is said and over.

    Though I can't disagree with your opinion at all,
    Rashad should be a good fight for Anderson if it happens.

    Rashad is hands down the biggest money fight for Anderson, and the kind of fight that could answer...or set up...alot of questions about who is best between Anderson and Jon Jones if Anderson annihilates Rashad in 2-3 rounds.

    But Rashad should stay at 205. Win the strap. And make Anderson move up to challenge for the strap, if he turns aside Machida [ he will ] and shuts down Gustaffson and other ole dude from Strikeforce.

    Upping this for the news that Thiago Tarvares popped hot in the post fight tests. Suspended for 9 months.

    The best part? After all that speculation and denial they finally said Vitor used an "approved" TRT regimen. So Tavares pops hot and gets suspended but Vitor is free and clear because he filed the paperwork properly. Sometimes this sport disgusts me.

    TRT is only allowed within specific amounts and only with a prior approval by the commission in which the event is taking place. TRT is what Marquadt was released for and TRT is what got Overeem suspended.

    However in Brazil, there is no commission. The UFC acts as it's own commission there (and anywhere else Internationally where there isn't a Governing body presiding over Combat Events). Which makes the whole thing sketchy in my opinion.

    I'm pretty sure it was known Belfort uses TRT though,
    so it isn't crazy to know he went out and got a contract to be able to do so.

    You think Chael stopped using TRT against Anderson the second time around?
    He just used the regular amount.
