finally got epsn on the free trial, really looking forward to 151 cant believe its been cancelled, i mean they usually pull something out. I was reading Dana White's twitter he is not a happy bunny first time having to cancelled. I really think Jones should have taken the Sonnen fight, I have seen people injured still fight, and i mean what was the big deal, was he scared of Sonnen really? But he will fight Belfort? Its all very strange. Dana has taken severe actions before like Nick Diaz not turning up to media event took GSP fight off him. I am surprised he didnt strip Jones for refusing to fight, he was talking about the huge amount of money wasted having to cancel. I would have watched Jones vs Sonnen, ah well, hopefull Belfort who i really like wont get kicked in the face and out like he was in the Silva fight, Jones really needs some who is going to give him a real go. I really wanted to see Dan Henderson fight him ah well.

If GSP really wants a legacy, he needs to grow a pair and move up to fight Anderson. At the minute, to me he looks and sounds scared. Look at BJ penn, he moved up. Legend. Silva moved up. Legend. All

Got me wrong there mate, I was saying i respect him because he shuts down opponents. Plus bigger doesnt equal stronger. Look at BJ, managed to KO a legendary WW in Hughes, before drawing against the n

That guy has a SERIOUS left hand. Lol @ Fitch grappling the ref. Good performance by Overeem, think JDS punishes him though. Reem is very muscle bound and kind of slow, Junior TKO's him IMO. My respe

Looking forward to Stann vs Bisping and hopefully Bisping finishing off Stann. I find Stann incredibly dull and I'd like to see him getting finished.

Not got huge expectations about the main event. I'd be surprised if it went past the first as Belfort needs to charge in to make up the distance and I can see Bones picking him apart. Would love to see Belfort win but I honestly don't see how he'll do it unless he catches Jones pretty quickly.

I've read a few folk saying that(he's a dick) I've not came across anything to make me dislike him yet so must have missed something :lol:

He's just quite cocky, although I can't blame him. And he was pretending he was so humble and saint-like, and then he goes and gets a DUI. He's not a bad guy but he tried so hard to be something he's not.

Turning down the Sonnen fight also got him a lot of backlash.

Didn't know about that,yea I like cocky folk as long as they can back it up and he obviously can.

Would have been a very very interesting fight,Sonnen's a bullying bastard in the octagon and a huge test for Jones.

I think Jones is a really insecure dude, despite the front he puts up. Remember Rampage making a fool of his "Horatio Caine 1000 yard stare"? That shit was funny, Jones acted like Rampage had just shat in his teapot. His face was a picture.

Im not a Jones hater, but I do think there is something odd about him. What a talent though. He breaks Vitor within two rounds, toys with him and finishes him in the 3rd. Will be cheering the Phenom on, but is very unlikely he has anything that Bones hasnt already seen.

Benavidez, Bisping, Hammil and Swanson take their fights IMO.

He needs someone similar change weight fight Anderson silva that would be a fight, I mean bonner is never going to beat silva either. Bisping was amazing again I see him first uk champ, have met him what a gent :drool:

On ufc on fox show, Dan Hardy was amazing some great take downs and great fight, want to see him in the big fights again

Hardy looked good in the 2nd and 3rd. Shame the Che Mills fight was ended prematurely.

Pickett was immense. Some chin!

Pickett has been a favourite of mine for a while. Gave Mighty Mouse a loss and had a great fight with Scott Jorgensen in the WEC. I would say he is as well rounded as anyone in the division.

I thought Struve looked good. Give him Werdum next. If the guy could use his range as well as the likes of Bones Jones he could be damn near unbeatable. He looks to be trying to fight a little smarter nowadays, less flying shit.

Predictable annihilation by The Spider. He could've ended it within seconds if he fancied but obviously wanted to make it last a bit for the home crowd.

Biggest surprise was how easily Maia out-grappled Story on the feet. From what I've seen, he's usually terrible at getting guys like that down to the ground - certainly in MMA fights.

Maia dropping weight has made a huge difference to his BJJ abilities. Middleweights were too much for him to handle in the end.

The Sonnen Jones Ultimate Fighter series is going to be excellent. Sonnen will verbally destroy him in the house, then Bones will physically destroy him in the Octagon! :-D
