    Yea, I'm also anxious to see Gray and Wiman fight. I think both guys were among BJ's top picks and I have read on forums and such that they are fairly solid fighters.

    So far, I haven't really been impressed with any of the guys too much. Not compared to past seasons. Manny and Diaz looked decent, but I just see both of them having problems in that division. I guess we'll see, but a lot of the fights have been fairly mediocre. Dana saying that one fight was one of the best ever? Really? It was two rounds of Diaz wailing away and the other guy trying to not be knocked out from what I saw.

    Yea, I thought Diaz's ground game was stellar though. It took him about a round to get Emerson down, but once he did it was game over. He went for a few different submissions and also his ground and pound looked solid. I was fairly impressed by him.

    I'll hold of judgement on the full cast until I see some of BJ's top guns go like Gray Maynard and Wiman.

    By the way UFC 73 has the makings of the card of the year.

    Anderson Silva-Nathan Marquardt

    Sean Sherk-Hermes Franca

    Tito Ortiz-Rashad Evans

    And it was announced that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will fight Heath Herring. It's not the Brandon Vera fight unfortuantly but it's a hell of a better fight that Nog-McCully. Herring is a known fighter who is coming off a very convincing win over Brad Imes. Should be a good fight in Nog's debut and I'm glad the UFC is throwing him into the Octagon against someone proven like Herring rather than a guy like Eddie Sanchez.

    Yeah. I'm really looking forward to that card. It's a shame we've got to get through TWO consecutive mediocre cards. Though, I'm a little more excited about 72 now that it looks like Okami will take on Franklin in the main event. That should be a war. 74 is starting to get a little better too. Couture/Gonzaga, (looks like) Koscheck/St. Pierre, Silvia/Mir (blech). Figure that Cro-Cop could maybe be on there too as he's pushing to get back in there quick.

    Yea, Franklin-Okami will be a great fight. Tough on Okami to take such tough fight on short notice but this is a great opportunity for him.

    The card doesn't look great, but I think its a free one so I won't complain.

    But yea, 71 looks bad. I'm exciting to see Karo fight especially against a pretty good young fighter in Josh Burkman. But yea that means there are 2 legit fights on that card.

    For example, why the hell is Keith Jardine fighting some guy I've never even heard of?

    Rumor that I saw the other day on Sherdog says 72 is going to be on PPV afterall. I hope not. That thing is a dog right now and I can't imagine sales being that good. With the location (Ireland), I can't believe it would be on PPV, but who knows.

    Once again. . .Jardine gets screwed. I mean, I know that division is fairly deep, but still. . .why does it seem to be him as the odd man out always?

    Yea, I hope its not PPV. I wouldn't buy it, especially with the time difference.

    Yea, Jardine should get the loser of Tito-Rashad. Hopefully that's how it plays out.

    We'll see what happens. Maybe they finally get that HBO deal worked out and it's on that channel. One can hope. Speaking of, here's a thumbs up to Max Kellerman for his response to Jim Lampley's obnoxious remarks about MMA. That guy knows who will be buttering his bread soon.

    Better be. He had a pretty decisive win against Griffin and the talk was Griffin would be in line for a #1 contender fight if he won so. . .

    Anyone going to see Sakuraba vs. Gracie at the Coliseum June 2nd? I'm not really looking forward to being outside in the heat but this will probably be my only chance to see Kazushi before he retires. Myself and Bishop412 got our tix already, pretty reasonable. Anyone else going?
