    My wife and I are hardcore fans ourselves, my TV DVR is set on inside MMA, Ultimate fighter, Hdnet fights, Wec Wreckage, Elite XC and Strike Force, I dont miss many fights.. We watch all the UFC's and get most of the fights at our place... We rented the Affliction fight and saw some great fights..wish they'd use a cage though..

    My favorite two fighters have been forever Randy Couture and George St. Pierre ... have mucho respect for all the fighters though and there are very few I dislike.. BJ Penn sick too!

    Seen the California kid for the first time the other night. The dude is awesome :hail: Never expected little evel to go the distance with him though. Whats everyone out take on Brock Lesner?? :confused: A power house, but is he to big to move efectively and be agile in the UFC?

    Lesnar has a lot to learn in the submission game. He has incredible explosive power and great wrestling but stand up and submission must improve to be a real threat IMHO.

    Lesnar is a wrestler, and a damn good one. I agree with raceway, especaially stand up.

    I thought Brock looked VERY agile and moved extremely well while he was on his feet... He was actually the most athletic-looking big guy I've seen in a long time. If he focuses on his ground game, he could be a major force in a few years.

    I'm really looking forward to his upcoming battle with Heath Herring, who likes to stand and throw as well. If he maintains that mindset, he could be in for a long night... or a short one. ;)

    Greg i actually hope Brock pounds on Herring, i just cant stand that guy. IMO he has great stand up and not much ground game. He is the easiest to take down guy i have seen in the UFC. I just have a peave about the guys with only stand up....It needs to be the total package in the UFC. :d SHED!! Your right the upcomming card is gonna be a killer one :smash:

    I would have preferred that over Tim... but it wasn't my choice. ;)
