    I think the problem with Cain Velasquez, and lots of other fighters but Velasquez inparticular, is a lack of personality. Cain just seems like a really boring and quiet dude. These guys need to go out there and get themselves noticed. I don't mean everyone has to be like Chael Sonnen and go overboard with the trashtalking and WWE-like promos but it helps to atleast make an effort to get yourself over. You can be the most talented guy in the world but if you have no personality no one is going to care. Floyd Mayweather didn't get where he is just with his talent, he sells PPVs because people are interested not only in his skill but in him as a person.

    Cejudo could be a great fighter but he has had trouble with making weight his last few fights and apparently has a really bad attitude problem. I don't see him succeeding in MMA.

    If UFC were the WWE, it'd be like 2006ish right now. The boom is done, but they're still doing pretty well. Things will continue to slide if they don't create some new stars, though.

    I mean, an attitude is kinda expected when you're the youngest gold medalist wrestling in Olympic history. But if he's able to make weight and have a few fights, he'll probably get it punched out of him.

    He's a wrestler, he's been making weight his entire life...that's unreal to me. There's just no way a wrestler should have this problem.

    Aaaand Holly Holm, the UNDEFEATED Holly Holm, has signed with UFC.

    Okay, this is interesting. If nothing else, she can outstrike Ronda.

    Dave Legeno, 50, better known in MMA circles as “The Enforcer,” was reportedly found dead this past Sunday in Death Valley, Calif.

    The Englishman, who also starred as Fenrir Greyback in the final three films of the widely popular “Harry Potter” series, was reported to have been discovered by a hiking group in a remote wash below Manly Beacon, west of Zabriskie Point in the desert, according to a statement Friday from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department.

    While the cause of death is not yet known, officials believe Legeno passed away due to “heat-related issues” and there were no signs of foul play. The Inyo County coroner is presently conducting an autopsy to determine the official cause of death.

    With a career mark in MMA of 4-3, the heavyweight was known for his extravagant walkouts and choice in costume. Fighting exclusively for the British-based Cage Rage promotion, Legeno lost his first three bouts as a professional.

    But in 2006, something changed.

    The former Team Titan product defeated UFC veteran Kimo Leopoldo via submission and followed up the first victory of his career with a decision win against Dan Severn before closing out his career on a high note against present-day referee Herb Dean. Legeno beat Dean via technical knockout.

    I don't know if you guys remember this but Nick Diaz fought Takanori Gomi in one of the last Pride shows in 2007. It was a hell of a fight and Diaz won via submission, which at the time was a huge upset because Gomi was red hot. Diaz failed his pre-fight drug test for Marijuana. They took the victory away from him and declared the fight a no-contest, fined him $3,000, and suspended him for six months for this.

    So I was reading further into this and found what the commissioner actually said about why they came down so hard on him for it:

    Dr. Alamo went on to say, "Mr. Diaz was 175(The THC levels in his system). This creates a unique situation. I was there at this fight and believe that you were intoxicated and... that it made you numb to the pain. Did it help you win? I think it did."


    Wow. The ignorance in this country when it comes to herb is strait ridiculous sometimes.

    If anything, it made him hungry to win.

    A question:

    Sometime ago, I was watching the show "Gangland", and they showing a gang named "Brown Pride". I noticed Cain Velasquez has a tattoo that says "Brown Pride". Is Cain's tattoo have any relation to the gang, or does it have different meaning?

    From what i've heard. The tattoo has nothing to do with the gang. Velasquez is just proud to be brown (hispanic/mexican), when he happens to be the palest guy I know of.

    Mexicans are proud to be brown, blacks are proud to be black, but the motherfucking Washington Redskins got problems. I don't get it.

    I don't ever recall a Native American in my personal experience ever having said Red Pride or having any such tattoos.

    As a concerned MMA poster... I would rather not debate this point here... LOL

    One FC is getting some starpower now. They just signed Brandon Vera last week and have announced their One FC 19 "Reign of Champions" card for August 29th. It features:

    Welterweight Title - Ben Askren vs. Nobutatsu Suzuki
    Lightweight Title - Shinya Aoki (c) vs. Kamal Shalorus
    Roger Huerta vs. Christian Holley
    AND SOME OTHER RANDOM FIGHTS...

    Askren, Aoki, Shalorus and Huerta are pretty big names in MMA. I'm obviously excited for the return of Roger Huerta as I've stated in another thread how much I used to like him and wish he would train at a really good camp and improve as a fighter. I highly doubt he has trained anywhere reasonable and the guy he is fighting is 10-0 and most of his fights have been stoppages, so I really don't know what to expect. I'm really pulling for Huerta here but if he won't get it through his head that he needs to go to a gym like Jackson's if he wants to get better then I my as well just give up on him like everyone else has. This will be the last time I get behind Huerta unless he shows me he still really wants to be fighting.

    Aoki/Shalorus probably won't be that interesting as we've seen that Shalorus fights really stupid and Aoki is most likely going to make him tap in quick fashion.

    Ben Askren should be able to win this fight, although Suzuki could make this fight fun if he can stay standing for any considerable amount of time. UFC needs to suck it up and sign Askren, he's not the most exciting fighter but he is damn good and he can hype a fight. He'd be a good heel personality for the UFC right now.

    UFC on Fox 12 might be the best free card I've seen. That baby is stacked!

    Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Brown
    Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
    Clay Guida vs. Dennis Bermudez
    Josh Thomson vs. Bobby Green (originally Thomson/Michael Johnson but this is still awesome)

    The prelims are pretty weak but the main prelim is Jorge Masvidal vs. Daron Cruickshank which is another great fight. Those are five superb fights for free on July 26th!
