    Also MMAweekly has it that Sean Sherk will be on that card for his first title defense. Love watching Sherk fight, hope he fights on that card or even sooner.
    Sherk has been injured, they are giving him time.

    Those are just a few I'd like to see. I'm hoping this goes through.
    So friggin happy about this. About time that these fights can take place. Get the best of the best in there and keep them as separate fighting orgs. Different rules. Different venues. Just great fights.

    No Pride deal (yet) according to Dana.

    Tito no-showed for the weigh-in for the boxing match against Dana.

    Dana can't be happy with Tito right now. Especially if it hurts the relationship with Spike, as they were going to broadcast the fight later on. Not to mention making Dana look bad in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    I still can't believe the merger.

    Here is Tito's response to backing out of the Boxing match with Dana:

    I thought this "fight" was built into his current UFC contract? Wouldn't that mean he would in a roundabout way get paid for it? I understand pulling out to not risk getting hurt ahead of the fight with Rashad, but pulling out because of money?!? Speaks a lot about Tito's character.

    Tito is a jackass, he was the one who wanted it written into his contract, now he backs out. What a dope. And I'm a Tito fan!

    Thinking about the merger, I really hope Dana and the Fertittas go through with their MMA "Superbowl" but at the same time, I hope they don't create belts for it. That was the problem I always had with boxing, was that there were too many belts, and the average person couldn't distinguish which one actually meant the most. I think a trophy for each weight class would be better. That way, you can have the "superbowl" once a year, and there's a good chance that many of the fighters will change from year to year to keep it interesting, rather than knowing that you're going to watch Fighter A again because even though he's lost his last 2 matches, he won the belt here last year, so he's got to defend it. Because I think if you have an event like this too often, it would get stale. Sure, have a few crossover fights throughout the year, but just have the one big yearly event that everyone will want to see.

    Thoughts?
