It's more due to the fact that Dana won't allow M-1 Global to co-promote shows like Fedor's manager wants, which I can understand not wanting to do that.

LOL That pic was of me, my buddy Giovanni Lemm, and Ed Herman. Ed did some commentary with us, but I think I pissed him off a bit. Cant remember why though... LOL
He was kind of a douche anyway (IMO)

I almost bought tickets for the last match that was in Ohio but just couldn't do it. Couldn't bring myself to pay that much for the tickets. We usually end up at Ashley's in Westland for the fight or BDubs.

My neighbor went once and said the same thing..He said you can't see sh#$ because the cage is in the way and you find yourself staring at the TV's. Another thing that sucks is that if the fight is over in 1 minute you probably have to sit there a half hour before the next fight buying $9 water that they claim is beer. Maybe I'll just go to the bar to see this one. I guess as its gets popular the price should drop as the venue grows.

I was at one in Chicago and almost every fight went to decision. The final straw that got people really booing was the Anderson Silva/Patrick Cote fight where Silva danced around like an idiot for 2 rounds. My wife and I were pretty annoyed at that one.

Default UFC 111 - Predictions?

St. Pierre vs Hardy - Well I probably think that everyone in here would say that Pierre would win this. I think Hardy is a good fighter but Georges has much more experiece and has fought the best in the weight class. The only thing possible is if Hardy can catch him with a nice punch. That is the only way I see him winning.

Mir Vs. Carwin - I think this should be a great fight. Frank has relied on his jiu jitsu for most of his fights but when Lesnar knocked him senseless I think it made him realize that you can't be strong in one area. He put on some weight and looked impressive verses Congo winning with a mix of striking and jiu-jitsu. Shane will be a big test for Mir. He is huge and I would put his skill set close to Lesnar's in that he has good wresting, decent jiu jitsu and great striking. I think if Mir can't take Carwin down he is going to have problems.

I hope to see Mir & St.Pierre come out on top in their fights.

Mir sbhould be able to submit Carwin unless he keeps telling himself that he's a great striker, if he treats this fight like the first Lesnar fight then he should be ok.

Hardy's a tough guy but GSP has destroyed many a tough guy and Hardy has no aspect of his game that beats Georges.
