A rare Sunday UFC event.  Shogun and Henderson are both 2 years older but with luck this time around will be half as good as their November 2011 fight.  Not a lot of other big names on the card, which is heavy on Brazilian fighters, but a few of the matchups could be interesting.

In the battle of two douchebags, we have

Will Chope, who got kicked out of the Air Force for domestic abuse (which included threatening his wife with a knife).

Diego Brandao, who at the UFC 168 weigh-ins, threatened to stab his opponent, Dustin Poirier.

Listen, and understand. That Fark filter is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not let you post anything even close to the F bomb, ever, until you are dead.

Your Chope link has been updated and the fight is called off and he's been released from the UFC.

I never have a good idea who to pick with the Brazilian heavy cards.

Looks like with the Brandao-Chope fight cut, the early prelims have been pushed to 4:30 PM ET.

I can understand them cutting Chope.  Makes the promotion look bad to "knowingly employ a known abuser." Kinda sucks that it happens the day of the fight, but the story just came out yesterday.  There are others on the UFC roster with similar or worse transgressions, but this news is fresh and I assume they felt  the publicity would hurt the company more.  A little hypocritical and unevenly enforced, but hey, it';s a business.  I can't blame them for cutting Chope.  I would have, too.  As for the others, they must see the value in them staying on the roster outweighing the liability since their offenses have been mostly forgotten.

/Chope would have been gone with a loss anyway, and he probably would have gotten thumped tonight.

I will miss this card, unfortunately, I think.

Best of luck on your picks.

If you see Kimmie: cup dat ass and tell her her boytoy says hello.

Somebody please fill in for me and barrage the thread with violent, hyperbolic statements of pure, reactionary filth.

I'm voting for Henderson, but I predict a drawn out decision going to Rua.

HaHaha. UFC terminated Will Chope.. Good for them.. fark that guy

Butts aren't a big priority for me.  Is it OK if I grope her rack instead?  (it is quite impressive)

/ That's my quota of objectifying her for today.  She seemed pretty nice and friendly in the very limited time I spoke with her.

You got it.  I'll go Chael P. Sonnen on this biatch

How many times is something like this going to happen before Zuffa starts running simple background on the guys they sign? You would think they might have learned something after they let the sex offender with Neo-Nazi tats fight in Strikeforce...

Yeah, you'd think any employment application/contract would have included a question that would have forced him to disclose any convictions (which would have included his Bad Conduct Discharge.).  Plus a simple background check would have turned it up.

10-9 Stringer

Good analysis from Brian Stann so far, too.
 
2014-03-23 05:21:19 PM  
10-9 Barrosso.  19-19
 
2014-03-23 05:24:36 PM  
No Joe?  Cool.
 
2014-03-23 05:27:11 PM  

2wolves: No Joe?  Cool.


Joe does the big shows and usually the main cards of them. The new guys do the fight night shows and the prelims
 
2014-03-23 05:27:58 PM  
Really close round.  I think Barrosso by a hair 10-9.  29-28 Barrosso, but really a toss-up.

One Bad Apple: 2wolves: No Joe?  Cool.

I think if Joe and Goldie are there, they do the whole card.

Bummer.  Hurts my picks, but not really a bad decision.  Really close fight.
 
2014-03-23 05:31:38 PM  
Stann is my least favorite UFC announcer. His favorite thing to do is to insist one guy "needs a finish to win" when that's completely not the case, just like he did in this fight.
 
2014-03-23 05:42:03 PM

Hoping Scott Jorgensen does well tonight.
 
2014-03-23 06:01:51 PM  
Gotta love the crowd.
 
2014-03-23 06:05:00 PM  

2wolves: Gotta love the crowd.


I hate that Brazil crowds boo all non-Brazilians.  Sonnen I can understand, given his antics.  But who boos Scott Jorgensen?  Sure, cheer your guy, but show some respect for the non-Brazilian opponent.
 
2014-03-23 06:06:40 PM  
Darn.  Scotty might be on the cusp of getting cut.

/and I'm still perfect picking losers.
 
2014-03-23 06:07:47 PM  
I find it hard to believe the head butt wasn't obvious.

Kind of funny after the headbutt to neck crank win: the Japanese on Formiga's team's shirt 頭(atama) means "head."

He has a quote from Animal House tattooed on his shoulder.  "Thanks God"

Got one.
 
2014-03-23 06:29:32 PM  
Well.

I got my picks in, but I will not be posting them because i'm 1-4 so far.
