Yeah, sorry, I gotta stop replying to the trolls. My picks sucked tonight though.


I don't think they are trolling, you guys just need to agree to disagree. We can't all feel the same about all the fighters, but we all enjoy the fights and the internet company. You are still going for the huge upset with your picks, and you almost had it.

You're probably right. Next week should be good fights as well, I'm excited for the Miocic fight.

NorCalLos: Klippoklondike: NorCalLos: Klippoklondike: NorCalLos: Klippoklondike: And what the hell does being white have anything to do with anything?

I was mostly joking, but I do think it takes a certain sense of white entitlement for you to think it's your job to decide where another man belongs, particularly a black man. Where does Stefan Struve belong?

Struve weighs 260 pounds...so, are you serious or trolling?

So, why doesn't he just put on five pounds and be forced to not fight anyone? Because he isn't better than everyone in his weight class?

Lol. You make absolutely no sense. It is like talking to a brick wall. I am done. Have a good night.

I make no sense because I'm using YOUR argument.


Actually, you are not using his argument. Struve is a particularly bad example that you picked. He has actively worked to GAIN weight to be a more competitive heavyweight, whereas Jones has to cut a fair amount of weight to make 205. Currently, Jones seems to be making weight handily, so if he wants to keep fighting at 205, then that's fine. As he ages, it will likely be more difficult for him to make weight. Probably doable, but he may decide at some point that it isn't worth the effort.

Struve on the other hand should be able to fit comfortably in the heavyweight ranks indefinitely. As he ages, all he will have to do is cut back on the lifting and the diet designed to promote extra muscle mass and he'll settle in at his "natural" weight.

I got the deafening tone with the colored bars and it said "ENCOMPASS" in front of them.

I used Struve because he's 6 inches taller than (almost?) everyone in the UFC. If he were as dominant as Jones, no doubt people would be saying the same thing about him they do about Jones. But, since he sucks, nobody complains. The reality is that having the classes delineated by weight, there's a trade-off between length and bulk. There's also a trade-off between cutting a lot of weight and cutting little/none. When a guy has found the ultimate sweet spot, I just don't get why people want to take that away from him. The only reason I can think of is that some people are just uncomfortable with others' excellence.

Dana is a farking classless douchebag, but at least he's consistently an asshole who says whatever he has to say at any given moment to protect the legitimacy of the UFC.

Take one look at Jones' brothers and you can see he's not likely to make 205 forever.

Great fighter, though. I don't like him as he seems douchetastic.

I disagree. Many people have opinions on where fighters are better suited that has nothing to do with either jealousy or race. I personally think Roy Nelson should drop the flab and cut to 205. I also feel Jake Shields is much better at middleweight than at welterweight. Tonight we saw two fighters at 125 who "belong" there instead of at 135 where they fought previously. People (me included) have been saying for quite a while that Frankie Edgar should move to 145. Is it because I am uncomfortable with their excellence, or am I a racist?

As far as Struve, his frame makes him a natural heavyweight. Jones' frame seems to be better suited to be a small or medium sized heavyweight. Currently he is able to make 205. As long as he can still make weight, he's free to stay there. People are, however, free to express the opinion that he is a pretty darn big lightheavyweight, and I would never play the race card if they express that opinion.

Like I said originally, I was mostly joking about the race thing, but saying someone should move to a different division because they'd be better in that division is not what KleptoKlondike was saying. He was saying that Jones should move to a weight where he would be less dominant. Are you intentionally acting like you don't know the difference, or are you farking retarded? If Jones isn't able to make 205 as he ages, then obviously he should move to heavyweight at that time. That goes without saying, unless--again--you're farking retarded. To say he should move to heavyweight when you believe he will be less dominant there makes you either a hater, a racist, or both.

Jones?


Yeah. He said they haven't had a chance to x-ray it but something about nerve damage to his bicep. So he was probably talking to an EMT in training.

Cool. I hadn't checked the standings recently. There's hope yet. The Tigers have really underperformed this year. Hopefully they can surge at the right time.
