    Yea, I'm not sure if he was making Mac feel guilty. That was a 10 second clip of like an hour long thing. I can see how people can view that move of Hughes to be pushy, but I don't think he was being a dick about it.

    I think it's pretty clear that he didn't really force anybody to read it. Hughes may be a bit of a prick but I think he's fair. If one of the guy's didn't read that passage I don't think Hughes would train them worse or differently. He doesn't seem like that type of guy. And of course Serra twists what happens and comments that Hughes is trying to make everyone a Christian which he clearly wasn't trying to do.

    Mac Danzig is doing a blog for the OCregister as the episodes go on. Pretty good read, here are links to the first 2 entries.

    Good fight reportedly added to the December Card

    http://mmajunkie.com/2007/10/01/repo...ira-at-ufc-79/

    Nog-Kongo

    This fight makes sense, Kongo deserves a big opponent after his win over Cro Cop and Nog doesn't deserve a title shot yet.

    I think match-up wise you'd have to give the edge to Nog. While his boxing is outstanding I think he'll be smart enough to see that Kongo has zero ability on the ground. If he gets the takedown the fight will be over pretty quick via submission.

    Kongo though has looked improved and he has Juanito in his corner who is slowly becoming one of the top cornermen in the game. If he can keep the fight standing he has a shot but Nog is one tough SOB.

    Should be a solid fight though, good clash of styles.

    David Terrell Vs. Ed Hermann on for November.

    http://mmajunkie.com/2007/10/03/davi...al-for-ufc-78/

    Nice to see David Terrell returning. Talented guy coming back to a weak division. Hopefully his debut goes well.

    not unless Kongo learns 6 years of ground game

    Nog's going to submit him in under two minutes

    I will be interested to see if Dan Henderson brings his other shiny belt to the Franklin-Silva II fight. I still have Silva winning that one, much to the dismay of the home crowd

    Terrell-Herman...hoping this will be the last we see of Ed Herman for a while.

    Did he come to the bout with Rampage with the PRIDE belt? I don't remember if he did. I know for damn sure Rampage didn't walk out with it. I think just getting rid of the PRIDE belt is Dana's way of saying a big **** YOU to PRIDE.

    Also I've read stuff that despite the UFC's urgings, Hendo wants to stay at 205. Hopefully he changes his mind.

    Could be, if he wins they should set up a rematch with Kendall. That first fight was awesome!

    Hmmm this is interesting

    http://mmajunkie.com/2007/10/03/rash...ded-to-ufc-78/

    Evans-Bisping is now a match for the November card.

    This was supposed to be Tito-Rashad. There are rumors of a contract dispute with Tito and the UFC.

    Other rumors are Tito could face Hendo.

    I wanted to see that Rashad-Tito rematch, but I would be happy with Hendo destroying Tito.

    beat me to it

    I hate this. I'd rather Bisping get fed to Shogun. I can see Evans laying and praying his way to a win

    I'd also rather see Hendo move down in weight

    Yeah, I seem to remember him coming in with the belt after Rampage beat Chuck. I'm almost 100% on that.

    Just wanted to comment on tonights TUF. While I like the guys a TON more than last season, the fights just suck.

    .
    He definitely did. But I'm not sure he came into the Octagon with the PRIDE belt when he fought Rampage. I know for damn sure he wasn't introduced as the PRIDE champion.

    And after that right, Rampage only had one belt with him.

    I'm REALLY shocked by this matchup. I've liked Bisping, and the UFC has really coddled him in my opinion. To give him to Evans after fighting Evans light, I'm gonna say that Dana feels Bisping isn't what he hoped he was. This is Bispings chance to show he's better than that last fight. I honestly think he has ZERO chance in this one. Rashad is a much better striker than Hammill and I think he's dominate the match. The only hope Bisping has is the fact that Rashad is a smaller 205 than Hammill is. I seriously think he gets killed though.
