    Shogun fought with injured knee

    http://mmajunkie.com/2007/09/27/repo...il-early-2008/

    Why do fighters fight injured. GSP is smart, if he gets hurt in training he'll pull out. Doesn't make any sense to me.

    The bad news is Shogun is out till 08, so no chance of him on the December Card.

    Hopefully that forces Dana to make that Chuck-Wanderlei fight.

    This is the news I am excited about.

    Finally Huerta gets a fight that will challenge him and a fighter that has a big gas tank. Guida will push the pace as will Huerta. Should be a great, great fight. And its free!

    Should the California State Athletic Commission uphold UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk's suspension for steroids, plans are close to set to crown a new champion.

    "Joe Stevenson will fight B.J. Penn for the vacated title if Sherk is suspended," White said. "I will wait until the decision is final though before scheduling the fight."

    Sherk's appeal for the suspension will be heard on Oct. 31.
    Guess that answers the questions we had about the Lightweight title picture.

    So disappointed in the Liddell loss. I kept thinking that Chuck would make some tactical changes during the fight, but they never came. I guess the kicks really took the fight out of Chuck.

    The good fight was the Forrest Griffin win. What a great fight and a submission to boot!

    Yeah. I never know what to make of it. Seems that EVERY fighter that loses says they have an injury. Not suggesting that Shogun wasn't injured. . .but there isn't a single guy that goes in that ring 100%. I honestly get tired of hearing that Shogun has a knee injury, Tito's back wasn't feeling right, Tim had an injured back, Diego has a staph infection, your mom has bowed legs. If that's the case, don't fight. If you choose to fight, STFU about it.

    Did you guys watch the second episode of TUF?

    This Joey kid is starting to annoy the **** out of me. It's nice that he helped the team with takedowns, but the constant whining about his G/F is lame.

    Like Serra, mentioned there are guys on the show that have kids and they don't whine about not being able to make calls every 5 seconds.

    As for the fight, I thought Dorian had a shot after he landed that big knee. I know he's a Muay Thai guy but I'm not sure why he decided to fight in the clinch. If he stayed back and picked his shots he might have won.

    Once Arroyo got it to the ground I knew it was over, he passed and mounted so easily.

    I watched it. Felt pretty much the same way. Gotta take back my comments about Mac too. He's starting to change me. The thing he did after the fight with Joanne was very classy. The other thing that I see (so far) is that these guys aren't a bunch of hotheads. They seem to be cool and respectful of each other. Nice change of pace after last season.

    Another thing. . .there's lots of talk about Hughes and the Bible thing. I don't personally have any issue with it. I might/might not read it. EVERYONE knows that Hughes is a bible thumper. He's a coach in this and he's trying to help these kids out. The bible is something that helps him, so it's another avenue that he's trying to use to help the guys. I understand it's a touchy subject and religion is something that a lot of people are sensitive about, but I'm not sure what he did was all that harmful.

    Strange that Hughes didn't do it once during Season 2, but he's pulling it out early this season. I'm a fairly religious guy, but I still think he's (practically) forcing the guys to read it, and I don't think anyone should ever push their religious beliefs on anyone else. Like when he walked over to Mac (I think) and started trying to make him feel guilty for not reading it.

    As for the fight itself, I honestly thought Arroyo was gonna drop like a rock after that nicely placed knee, but like everyone else, you knew that once it got to the ground that it was over. Nice show of class by Mac with Joey, but Joey really needs to go. Enough already. How can he honestly be bitching about the house already? They've only been there a matter of days at this point! Grow a pair, or go home.

    Yea, Mac seems like an alright guy. He wrote Joey's name back on the wall and tried talking him into staying.

    I think what I like most about him is how much of a professional he is. We've seen past TUFs where the guys just go on to get on TV(Ruediger for example) so it's refreshing to see Danzig train so hard. And he's a guy whose fought in PRIDE, TUF is probably beneath him but he knows it's probably good for his career, so I like how serious he is taking this show.

    Yea, I don't really have an issue with it either, like you mentioned it's something that works for Hughes. It's not for everyone but even if it works for just one guy doesn't that make it a success? I don't think anybody was hurt training wise by this.
