Yep yep, Jones should be back later this year once he's recovered.

Damn, I was really excited to see the Jones v Evans fight. It's always more interesting when there's some drama involved.

Anyone else notice (dont know if you can if ur stateside) that the UFCOnline events you can purchase and stream went from $20 bucks an event to the ridiculous $45 event without any notice?????? Being over here in Europe, I have to rely on (albeit nice of them) free broadcast of UFC events at a particular time... and I am working during every damn event airing, and cant record it! So if I miss it im screwed, hence why I used to purchase and stream.

Now its not only up to more than double original pricing but its blacked out in a few countries in Europe, including Italy which I am stationed in. Good grief, what a pain in the ass. How in the world am I going to get my taste of UFC now? Even though its now $45, id still pay it if I could, but I cant.

Any help appreciated fellas.

whenever I miss an event, I just download them the following morning. Most torrent sites will have the event a few hours after its aired

That's rough mate. We're pretty fortunate as I know a few people that watch it so we usually take turns at hosting UFC events or we head into the pub and watch it. I used to be able to watch it the following day but now I feel like I need to see it live. I also hate finding out the result before I see the event for the big fights.

Yeah, I use kickasstorents or btjunkie, but those two are also being blocked by the fascist fucks of the Italian government lol. I try and use a proxy bypass, but most have embedded adverts that block the pages and only let you click through the advert... frustrating.

I really dont want to miss arguably one of the best/biggest live fight events in UFC history... If I do, I only see one course of action:

Total sensory blackout for the foreseeable future until it can be watched lol.

Yea, I hate finding out the results too, so what I do is ignore ESPN or any sports website, till I have watched the fights. I usually will wake up early the next day and download and watch, just so I dont accidentally find out the results

"Jose Aldo is so good, that Anderson Silva said if he (Aldo) was 185, he'd retire" lol. What a compliment.

Thats probably a lot of jest just to give credit where its due, Jose is a phenom in the sport. Im sure Anderson wouldnt shy away from a challenge like that would bring lol.

My picks for the fights

Diaz
Bocek
Couture
Brilz

Aldo

Shields Yeah, id bet it all if I was in Vegas. Although I know Jake doesnt have anywhere near the standup GSP has, he is going to absolutely dominate him on the ground. Hes not going to even look at the standup.

man, im not sure sure Bocek can beat Henderson. Henderson is near impossible to submit and even harder to knock out. Any one who can recover from a kick like the one he took against Pettis, gets my vote to win just about any fight. Gonna be one hell of a fight though

I think Shields will be GSP toughest match to date but GSP has shown he can adapt to any fighters style and dominate. I think Shields will struggle to get him down and I also have to question his cardio, he looked like he was gonna pass out after the Kappmann fight and you know GSP isnt gonna get tired, dude can prob go 10 rounds

totally pulling for Randy though, he has to go out w/ a win!

what a card, cant wait!

Wow, Phil Davis going straight to the top! I saw him fight at the Patriot Center in VA a few years ago and I knew he was something special, destined for the UFC.

Like you said, cardio will be the big factor for Shields. I think GSP will dominate this fight in every aspect including the ground game.

I don't see Shields beating out GSP. GSP, as usual, will have complete control of the fight due to his wrestling. If GSP goes to the ground you can pretty much bet he will end up in Shields' guard. Shields is not going to be able to submit GSP from guard, just no way.

If Shields somehow manages to be on the ground with GSP and NOT be on his back, I think that is the only way he may have a shot at GSP (short of the freak KO that can happen in any fight against anyone at any time).

GSP is just too experienced and too strong for even someone with Shields' BJJ experience to submit from there. I doubt Shields will even try much from guard to be honest. He will probably focus more on transitioning to something else vs trying to submit GSP from guard.

It's just really really tough to catch a strong, experienced person from guard. Your BJJ has to be 2 or 3 levels ahead of the other guy to get him from guard, and I dont think anyone in the world has that over GSP (other than maybe Rickson Gracie).

GSP is 3 levels below Shields ground game skill... Are you kidding me, there is NO comparison. GSP is a sly, snakey dude, but he does not have the skills needed to stay off his back in this one, Shields is twice as strong as GSP. Shields is a Champion caliber wrestler, and JJ black belt, where as GSP, is just good. There is a big difference and we are going to see that in this fight I think.

GSP

If he wins tonight, hopefully he'll move up so we can see the GSP/Silva superfight.
