The bad news: Renan Barao is out, so Joe Soto moves up from the prelims to face Dillashaw for the bantamweight title. This leaves Anthony Birchak without an opponent, so the event loses a fight.  But wait, there's more! Henry "Rumble" Cejudo pulled out too, due to illness after yet another bad weight cut, so Cejudo vs Scott Jorgensen is off too.  Pretty much a trainwreck of a card, especially considering that Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafson was once scheduled for 177, and was called off a long time ago because of Gus getting injured.

The good news: There are still 8 fights that will (probably) go on. A very weak event for a pay-per-view, but we can hope it's one of those that looks bad on paper but delivers good fights.

This might be the most hum-drum, boring PPV line-up I have ever seen out of the UFC. Only a few fighters I have ever even heard of on this card, it looks more like what you'd see on a mid-week card on Fox Sports 1, to be honest, not something we're expected to pay to see.

Depressing. I hope Dana White gets things worked out soon, so we can see a good PPV every month, something worth paying for.

You should be happy that Dana White opens the UFC to the public at all.  Dana doesn't have to televise the events.  He doesn't have to sell tickets for the events.  He does it because he is a nice guy with a history of making people happy.  He wants people to watch the fights with him because that is what good hosts do.  If anything, you should be mad at the fighters for being scared to fight.  I go to war every day as a Wal-Mart greeter, and yet, I'm not scared to go to work, but these guys are.  Maybe if the UFC would hire some real fighters, like John Cena, Richie Incognito, and Jean Claude van Damme, this wouldn't be happening.

Pfft.  Segal is a fraud.  If you wanted to use a counter-example, at least go with Jet Li.  Dude took on the entire UFC roster in Cradle 2 the Grave.

I just saw an advert for the PPV (Joe Rogain screaming OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH) and they're still selling it as the Barao rematch PLUS Mighty Mouse vs.Chris Cariaso.

To be fair they haven't had much time to cut another promo for the new main event.

Sensei Seagal is legit. He developed the ingenious "bowel loosening" defense to the rear naked choke when teaching Judo Gene Lebell.
 
2014-08-30 05:02:03 PM  
Anyone know if the PPV is being offered on discount? Because if it isn't, then it should be. I can't see anyone but degenerate gamblers paying $45 for this drek.

was waiting for an announcement all day that this was going to be free on fightpass...

And for those who haven't seen it, one of the most ridiculous comebacks in MMA history, Joe Warren vs Joe Soto:

Prelims are live.  Gonna have to fill some time, with two hours for three fights.

God evening ladies and gentlemen.

Gawd evening

Hmm.  A very unhappy Dana White; looks like Barao's getting booted back down the title ladder for this one.

"This was his shot. He was getting his rematch. Now Dillashaw is going to fight tomorrow night. If he wins, he moves on to the next guy, and Barao will fight somebody else when he's ready to come back."

"He has the money to go out and get a real nutritionist. You've got to have a real guy watching you when you're cutting weight like that, just handing you your food. It's one less thing for you to worry about. Hand you your food. 'This is what you drink.' And monitoring you, making sure you're where you should be. And obviously, his guy wasn't good enough. He needs to get a real nutritionist."

The  5 fighters who actually know how to punch will win their fights

Did anyone else watch Legacy fights on AXS last night?  Jonathan Brookins fought, and it was just sad.  He's been into some religious journey and it looks like he doesn't care to fight any more.  Showed up without a cornerman, kind of half-assed the fight, etc.  Lost a decision to a guy he would have crushed a few years ago.

Barao walks around close to Aldo. Dana should make him go up for his own safety

The production truck caught fire?  This card is cursed.

Is 4 oz gloves some kind of new hashtag buzzword?  Pretty sure they've said it 20 times already.

Seems to be the shorthand of the day for saying anything can happen in MMA and that Soto has a puncher's chance (even though he's more of a ground guy).
 
2014-08-30 08:46:30 PM  
Big boys coming up.  I'm sure this will be a 3-round technical war that goes the distance and keeps the fans interested.

/or one big guy will knock out the other one in the first, and they'll have to fill over an hour with the next fight.

If Soto wins it is going to be goddamn hilarious.

Put Rogen in the cage with volunteers from the audience.

They are gonna have to get the ring girls to glove up to just fill time.

They hired a walrus as ref.

Christ, I know you're a heavyweight, but don't throw those kicks if they're that slow.

I'd pay to see that.  In fact, I'd fight one of the ring girls.  Of course I'd spend the whole 3 rounds in her guard...

Ladies and gentlemen, the dregs of the heavyweight division.  Kind of defines "lumbering".

Potts is so, so, so slow.

10-9 Hamilton, such as it is.

fark those ribs.  Stop this already.
 
2014-08-30 09:03:28 PM  
that bruise is gonna be huge and purple in two hours
 
2014-08-30 09:04:32 PM  
That was ugly.
 
2014-08-30 09:04:57 PM  
Ref gave him far too many chances. Enjoy some fractured ribs, been there in training before, not fun.
 
2014-08-30 09:05:27 PM  
Fark that was godawful.

I think Bjorn Rebney is dabbling in the dark arts since being fired from Bellator.

Hamilton just earned a title shot against Velasquez.

/they'd have to hose down the cage after the evisceration

Good stoppage.
