    I was just commenting on how the UFC was suddenly cutting a lot of fighters, not that O'Brien was a MW. Reading it back though, I certainly did imply that he was a MW. Gotta stop posting so late at night.

    Roger Huerta-Kenny Florian in August

    Report: Roger Huerta vs. Kenny Florian set for UFC 87 | MMAjunkie.com

    I really like this fight. The proper step up in competition for Huerta and a worthy opponent for Florian. This one is clearly #1 contender's match.

    I think it makes for a great fight, Huerta's gas tank is seemingly endless but Florian has good cardio too. I think Florian has more well rounded striking but Huerta's hands might be better. Huerta is the better wrestler, but Ken Flo has the edge in BJJ.

    Love this matchup!

    Report: Affliction loses venue for July 19 debut show | MMAjunkie.com

    Not a good way for things to start for Affliction. Hopefully they can find another venue, but I still question the PPV draw of Sylvia & Fedor.

    http://fiveouncesofpain.com/2008/05/...ow-on-july-19/

    At the bottom, it also mentions that EliteXC has now banned Affliction at their shows. I guess Dana & the UFC aren't the only evil ones.

    Cutting Din is surprising, but at the same time LW is such a deep division.

    In an article over on SI.com, Josh Gross is claiming that the payroll for the Affliction show is going to be in the $6 million range. I just don't see how they can pull this off.

    Sure they can. No venue yet. No tickets being sold. So main event signed. What's the big deal? It's not like it's a month and a half away or anything.

    Leben has been sentanced to 35 days in jail. Bisping fight apparently off now. Nice to see the justice system rewards those who are (fairly) honest and try to do the right thing.

    I can see them pulling it off. They'll just lose a lot of money in the process!

    Too bad he's not an underage hollywood starlet in LA. He'd have gotten like three hours in prison.
