    Anyone else read this or see additional information??? Its the first I have heard. Although I was suprised that while watching the UFC COUNTDWON Silva vs. Irvin they showed a highlight of Reese Andy fighting in the IFL. When they did this they like focued in on the IFL logo and I thought it was odd.

    Edit: In for the "Janitor" back in the UFC

    Haha, I noticed that to last night. I've never that much footage from another organization on a UFC promo. Usually it is a quick snippet so you barely know what even it is.

    I'm not sure why they would do that instead of eating up their roster as it dissembles on its own. Nobody else seems to have an interest in buying it. Maybe Affliction...they could probably use some of IFL's new wisdom. The price is cheap enough to be affordable. I put in an order for 1c on the stock this morning, but it opened at .14 and never looked back. I can see it going up to 30c but will probably liquidate once they find out how much the UFC paid for the company.

    they will buy it cheaply, including its contracts, and fold up shop.

    history repeats itself :o

    You dont like Vladimir, Chris Hordecki, etc..... ????

    I dont think they are top tier but they should be equal or better than some of the mid-level and cans in the lower ranks of the UFC :dunno:

    Horodecki would get smashed by any 155 gatekeeper. I love the Janitor and I hope they keep him. I dont think he'll do very well in the UFC again, but he is a good dude.

    i say keep nelson, horodecki, bartimus, and a couple others, and just let them all have one fight, lose, they leave.

    I'd love to see Chris in the UFC


    I remember the first time I walked into Tompkins. He was off to the side "working out" to Bas Rutten MMA workout tape

    i would like to see them put horodecki in the WEC at 145. i think there qwould be some interesting matchups for him there.
