    ...will be for the UFC LHW Title. It's been rumoured the past week or so that neither title would be on the line. The fight is in the UFC (obviously), and Zuffa confirmed it will be for the UFC Title.

    No clue if it will also be for the Pride title, but right now I'm thinking it will not be. Only UFC title is on the line.

    Josh Gross spoke with someone within Zuffa and they just talked about it on Sherdog Radio.

    i think they know winning a Pride title by fighting in an octagon is fucking stupid.

    I really have no idea who to root for here. :dunno:

    I'd like to see Rampage stay on top because he's entertaining and it can only do good things for the sport.

    Henderson would be a better image for the sport.

    UFC isn't good about promoting the fighters

    look what PRIDE did with him though. on top of that, he's damn good about promoting himself as well

    agreed, but since when does Zuffa/Dana White care about classiness? :o

  15. Hendo has no business wearing a champion's belt at 205.

    I love him, and he's a monster at 185, but he gets bullied too easily at 205.

    Then Pride would really be screwed :mamoru:. They'd probably make him give the belts up or something.

    unfortunately, i agree

    he's too small of a 205lber too stay there for a long time :hs:


    hopefully he continues to at least fight intelligently though
     
  18. if by "fight intelligently" you mean "get wild, flail with crazy bombs, and end up on your back, only to scramble out because you're the scramble king" then yeah.

    I think they're being a little careful before they fully push him towards becoming the posterboy of the UFC considering the fact how there were so many upsets and debunks in the last couple months/years.

    QFT, Hendo doesn't belong in any other weight class. That being said it should be an exciting matchup but I'm going with Rampage.

    Im backing 'page in this one Hendo is good but Rampage is a solid wrestler and walking weight would be 30lbs more then hendo I reckon.

    I like hendo, even though I cringe when I think of him beating wanderlei. Regardless of all that though, I want Rampage to win just because he's Rampage.

    I am cheering for Rampage.

    Your comment is true. Rampage can slam people who walk around at 215-225 pretty easily, he should be able to throw a 205 guy around.
