    I like that it's an interim title fight only because then it's a 5 round fight. So I don't mind it.

    AND the fact that if Sherk does lose his appeal, Dana doesn't have to scramble to put together a "title" fight between Stevenson/Penn and someone else.

    I agree, I have no problem with his handling of it. That being said, Penn in the 2nd by strikes.

    Brock Lesnar to make his UFC debut against Frank Mir.

    http://www.sherdog.com/news/news.asp?n_id=9812

    I am pleasantly surprised by this. Part of me thought that the UFC would give Lesnar a few show case fights(think Eddie Sanchez) but instead they throw him in there against Frank Mir.

    Yea, Frank Mir isn't a top 10 HW. But he's still an outstanding grappler who has been in the Octagon many times before. He is definitely not some pushover.

    Once again another good marketing idea. Put him in there with a former name who has had a hard go recently and anything can happen.

    Yea, I think it'll be a good test for Lesnar. Mir is a whiz on the ground and Lesnar will probably take the fight to the mat with his wrestling skills.

    Never was a big Tanner fan. Not really the most talented fighter, more of an overachiever but a name to put back into the 185 pound mix.

    Tanner is the man. Overachiever? No doubt. That's probably why I'm a fan.

    He's a decent-good fighter. He claims that he knows how to beat Anderson Silva. I highly doubt that!

    Anyone watch the EliteXC card this weekend? Thoughts on the Kimbo fight from those who did? Personally, I think Cantrell just wanted out of there, but that's just my $0.02.
