    Affliction still has a few tests to pass for official go-ahead - Josh Gross - SI.com

    Sounds like the Affliction show is moving to Anaheim.

Kongo was close until he lost to Heath.

    Mir is coming off 2 submission victories within the 1st 2 minutes of the fight, and he never truly lost his belt. Sounds close enough to a contender to me.

    While these 2 are tied up in TUF, maybe someone else can string together a couple of wins and actually establish the next #1 contender.

    Not me seeing as how those 2 victories were against a professional wrestler and a K-1 Kick Boxer. There's no way that those 2 wins make him a title contender, especially since he got smoked by Brandon Vera.

    What the UFC should have done was not name the title fight just yet. They won't fight till the winter anyways. They should have let the Andre Arlovski situation sort itself. He is really the only legit contender right now. If he doesn't sign them make the Big Nog-Mir fight.

    You're not wrong ASU.

    But I think the UFC should've just kept Nog out of the show completely. Have 2 guys coach opposite each other, then fight for the right to fight for the title. Or just have 2 random coaches, not even necessarily in the same weight class (like TUF 2). The show should go back to being more about the fighters and less about the coaches.

    Then again, what if the AA situation sorts itself out in the wrong way. Then you are still left without a valid #1 contender. Vera would have to throw together another small win streak, and you'd have to find someone for Mir to fight, whereby if Mir wins, the fans feel he beat someone of high enough calibre to earn a shot. It's just too frickin complicated now. And it's all Randy's fault!!!

    I, like you, don't actually believe Mir is worthy of a shot right now. I just believe that he's the closest thing they've got to a contender (outside of AA, who may or may not be done with the UFC) right now, and people have gotten title shots because of less.

    Dana White Calls Tito Ortiz 'A F---ing Idiot. One of the Dumbest Human Beings I've Ever Met' - FanHouse - AOL Sports Blog

    While I firmly believe that Dana is right in that Tito's time has passed and he's not longer the amazing fighter he plays himself up to be, Dana really has to stop badmouting everybody. It's just so childish and unbecoming of the president of a company.

    Did you know that Frank WAS the UFC Heavyweight champ already? And that his loss to Vera was a speed bump on his comeback after a bad motorcycle wreck? Not saying he fully deserves a title shot right now, but really in that division and 2 win streak is pretty good! And come on....he knee barred king kong for gods sake! That's worth it right there! haha

    The motorcycle crash is over 4 years ago. It's time to stop using that as an excuse for Frank Mir to get his title shot. Especially since in his first fight back he got smoked.

    He got killed by Brandon Vera, 3 years AFTER his accident. How is that a speed bump?

    Dude, not making any excuses! He's getting a title shot man! haha
    Do you just not like him or do you think there's some one else in the HW class that deserves it more? I mean seriously........Nog got a title shot after ONE FIGHT in the UFC!
    My point was simply he's just as qualified as anyone else and being that he was a title holder in the past gives him an even bigger edge.
