Did either of you get flu shots? I don't know how effective it is this year, but I didn't get one. Maybe I should.
 
2013-01-12 11:01:31 PM
With Strikeforce dissolving, have the bigger names already negotiated with UFC, or are they technically free agents after tonight? I've been a bit preoccupied the last month or so, so I'm a little out of the loop.

Oh, and get your flu shots. My father nearly died of swine flu a few years back. It's no f'ing joke, and the swing flu vax is in the flu shot now.

Whatever contracts existed were part of the purchase. Any renegotiations are "voluntary."

I got the flu shot. Then got possibly the worst flu of my life.

Nope, no flu shot. I heard they picked the right strains for the vaccine this year, so probably a good idea to get one soon.

I'm sorry you got sick, but trust me, you don't want swine flu. It makes regular flu look like a party.

So UFC absorbed every contract? I expect a lot of people to be cut after one loss.

Several are already signed to UFC. Others are probable, others are probably scrambling for whatever org will take them.

Jeezus he's fast.
 
2013-01-12 11:08:59 PM
White dude is gassed and out classed.
 
2013-01-12 11:11:55 PM
Pretty much a full round of survival mode. Cormier a solid 10-9, almost 10-8.
 
2013-01-12 11:12:06 PM

violentsalvation: Lol this is hilarious.


laughed pretty hard. Josh knows how to entertain.
 
2013-01-12 11:12:55 PM
Well, he made it to round two.
 
2013-01-12 11:13:22 PM

psychicdeath99: Don't feel too bad now, but this hacking cough just won't let go.


No shiat. I'm stuck at "don't make me laugh because I will cough" stage for a solid week now.

Cormier got a showcase, eh?

Watching three sporting events, must've missed the part about the swine flu. Regarding the contracts, who knows what they look like. SF was really top-heavy with talent, but even more so with their contracts. I'm sure if Zuffa doesn't want guys around, they can afford to pay them to go away.

This is ugly. UFC wanted Cormier to look good, so they picked the right guy for him.

Beyond that, just plain ugly...

Yeah, they just fed this guy to him.

He needs to start swinging with top HW's.
 
2013-01-12 11:16:40 PM
Dude, that was a handful of BLATANT shots to the back of the head?
 
2013-01-12 11:17:12 PM
Yeah. Big John had seen enough.
 
2013-01-12 11:17:13 PM
Surprise BJM let Cormier hit him with all those shots to the back of the head.
 
2013-01-12 11:17:17 PM
thank you, Big John...
 
2013-01-12 11:17:59 PM
What I mean is that if you look at fighters' compensation, the lower level fighters don't get paid much. What I don't know is what the contracts look like as far as being guaranteed fights, or guaranteed money IF they fight, or what the remedy is if they aren't given fights. I'd expect that if someone has two fights left on their contract at $10k per, Zuffa could either keep them hanging on until they ask out to go fight somewhere else, or buy them out for $20k or a smaller/negotiated amount.
 
2013-01-12 11:18:07 PM
Big John should've taken a point for those rabbit punches, he warned Cormier like 50 times.

Mir was supposed to fight him and pulled out with injury. No other signed UFC heavy would fight him. Thats how we got stuck with this guy.

I guess nobody else wanted to fight Cormier. But this isn't much of a win.
 
2013-01-12 11:25:14 PM
Elaine Benes' favorite fighter.

Agreed. This fight showed me nothing. But... I think he will beat Mir. Mir struggles with top quality wrestlers. I see Cormier pulling an ugly 3 round decision over Mir. Maybe Mir sneaks in a sub on a guy who hasn't faced a high end HW with subs, but I have a feeling if it goes past 2 minutes of round 2, Mir is gassed and gets laid on...
 
2013-01-12 11:28:25 PM
Not a chance in the world the 49'ers put up 45 points with Alex Smith at QB...
 
2013-01-12 11:33:44 PM
Nate looks a full weight class larger.
 
2013-01-12 11:34:49 PM
boop and his legs just jelly.
 
2013-01-12 11:37:51 PM
Nate got STUNG! NICE
 
2013-01-12 11:38:22 PM
Really close. I'd say Nate 10-9.
 
2013-01-12 11:40:18 PM
Nice trip.
 
2013-01-12 11:40:20 PM
Not walking through this guy like I expected.
 
2013-01-12 11:44:23 PM
Nate is getting tired. Tarec's striking has him 2nd guessing.
 
2013-01-12 11:44:54 PM
Another close round. 10-9 Nate. 20-18. But both rounds could just as easily go to Tarec.
 
2013-01-12 11:46:09 PM
Who is that guy yelling from Nate's corner? Is that GSP?
 
2013-01-12 11:48:23 PM
Nate has low hands, man.
 
2013-01-12 11:50:06 PM
Why is the crowd booing this? Jeebus Christ, people.
 
2013-01-12 11:50:18 PM
Marquardt's leg is so f*cked up.
 
2013-01-12 11:51:00 PM
Think I'll say Tarec for that one, 10-9. 29-28 Nate.
 
2013-01-12 11:52:10 PM
That's gonna be an epic bruise tomorrow.
 
2013-01-12 11:53:05 PM
god is that leg ugly.
 
2013-01-12 11:53:08 PM

violentsalvation: Marquardt's leg is so f*cked up.


It's like an amputation drawn out over an entire evening.
 
2013-01-12 11:53:25 PM
My god Marquardt's left leg looks like shiat.
 
2013-01-12 11:54:20 PM
Marquardt got Cro Cop'd...
 
2013-01-12 11:55:29 PM
He's gonna need a crane kick to pull this out, Karate kid style.
 
2013-01-12 11:56:20 PM
OMG.
 
2013-01-12 11:56:41 PM
10-9 Tarec. 38-38.

Nate's leg is gone.
 
2013-01-12 11:56:59 PM
That zoom-in on the thigh has my balls making a fist.
 
2013-01-12 11:57:53 PM
This is Saffiedine's to lose. Hope he celebrates his leg kick victory with a steak. Rare. Like how Marquart's leg looks
