This is why DVRs exist. I'll be watching UFC and recording Bellator, most likely. Or skipping back and forth as much as possible between fights.

It's a shame that Dennis Hallman didn't make weight for the second time, so the Hallman-Tavares fight was cancelled. The UFC then cut Hallman, but paid him his show and win money. Hopefully he'll get his problems resolved and show up in some promotion.

Just as well. I made mine two days ago, and they just added a fight today, s I had to pick that one first before I posted.

Apparently Jeremy Stephens was arrested on an old warrant this morning. Dana says he is still fighting though.

I kind of wonder how much the Speedos he wore at UFC 133 had to do with him being cut. A little, maybe. I remember Dana being pissed at the time.

I imagine the bigger issue was missing weight two fights in a row. Probably shouldn't have moved down to lightweight.

Word is that he had a talk with Dana White about "personal problems" that prevented him from making weight. Dana may be a jerk at times, but he doesn't seem to be the kind of guy to kick someone when they're down. I hope he left the door open for Hallman to return if he gets himself together, and does well in smaller promotions. (Although at 36 years old, working his way back up to the UFC will be a rough road.)

Klippoklondike: Apparently Jeremy Stephens was arrested on an old warrant this morning. Dana says he is still fighting though.


Thanks for the info. I just looked into it, and at least at the Bleacher Report article that pops up first on Google, it seems less certain the fight will go on. According to updates to the article, he's being held without bail on a felony charge from another state.

If all this is true, it seems doubtful to me that he'll be able to get it sorted out in time to fight. (And if he does, how will this affect his performance?)

I was thinking the same thing, and it's a shame because this was going to be a great fight

Still conflicting reports. ESPN says Stephens will fight. Link

NY Post says it's still unknown. Link

The Post article includes a link to the Hennepin County Jail. It shows him as still in custody, but I have no idea how quickly the status changes once he is released. Link

Looking forward to it. I didn't catch Invicta 1, but Invicta 2 had some really good fights.

The first one was at least as good as the second. If the third keeps the same pace it could easily be the most entertaining mma of the weekend.
 
2012-10-05 03:22:35 PM  
It looks like the modmins set the start time late.

I checked, and they'll be streaming the whole thing live again, at InvictaFC.com The site says it starts at 6 PM, but doesn't specify a time zone. (They're fighting in Kansas City, Kansas, so my guess is 6 PM Central, or 7 PM Eastern.)
 
2012-10-05 03:36:01 PM  
The big questions for tonight's main events, of course, are: A.Has Prindle found his nuts yet after Santos kicked them off? and B. Has Bigfoot stopped bleeding yet after the beating Velasquez laid on him?

The blood made that fight look a lot worse than it was. For a guy with blood pouring into his eyes he survived pretty well. Couldn't continue like that though, of course.
 
2012-10-05 03:49:33 PM  
I was just logging in to Facebook to be ready for the first prelim. Looks like UFC changed the start time to 4:25 PM ET.
 
2012-10-05 04:17:14 PM  
Facebook prelim has been cancelled. Hmmm...wonder if they had to move the fight up to the Fuel prelims to make up for a cancelled Stephens-Edwards fight? (In addition to the Hallman-Tavares cancellation)
 
2012-10-05 04:42:12 PM  
Man, I wanted to watch this but I'm flying out.
 
2012-10-05 05:13:11 PM  
I don't know what's going on with direct tv, but I actually have all these channels right now.

Tough round to call. I'll go 10-9 Harris.

Nice transition to the back.
 
2012-10-05 05:24:11 PM

2012-10-05 05:24:17 PM  
And he gets the RNC.
 
2012-10-05 05:24:25 PM  
Sweet choke
 
2012-10-05 05:30:48 PM  
I had to rewind to watch that failed somersault kick again. Funny stuff. Wish I knew how to transfer video from my TV feed to make a gif.

Off to a silly start. Harris was so overmatched in that first fight, but I have faith in Nunes.

10-9 Nunes. Bart threatened with a triangle, but never had it locked in. Other than that, Nunes kicked his butt.
 
2012-10-05 05:43:35 PM  
10-9 Nunez
 
2012-10-05 05:44:51 PM  
Nunes is looking very good tonight. Probably going to get this prediction wrong haha

Bart started to land a little, but still Nunes' round. 20-18 for Diego
