    Fabricio Werdum was today announced as the latest PRIDE fighter to jump to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.....

    Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (#2 Heavyweight in the World) (22-4-2) vs. Gabriel Gonzaga (7-1)

    Michael Bisping (12-0) vs. Elvis Sinosic (8-9-2)

    Forrest Griffin (13-4) vs. Ryoto Machida (9-0)

    Fabricio Werdum (#7 Heavyweight in the World)
    (9-2-1) vs. Andrei Arlovski (#6 Heavyweight in the World) (10-5)

    White said the Werdum signing had only just been finalized. “PRIDE is in deep trouble. We’ve snatched away half their guys and I’m not done yet.” He dismissed another promotional rival more succinctly: “IFL sucks.”

    I'm really suprised they're putting Forrest up against Lyoto, with Forrest coming off the loss. I see Lyoto KOing Forrest, and him crying some more.

    Sinosic has by far the worst record with the UFC at 1-6. He beat Jeremy horn and has lost 6 straight since then. Ridiculous that they keep bringing him back to lose

    He's an Aussie fighter who won his first fight in the UFC years ago and then got his ass royalled whooped the next 3 or 4 times in the UFC after that. It sucks because I'd love there to be some Aussie talent at the world level, but this guy is nothing special.

    Lost the next 6 in a row, it'll be 7 in a row after the Bisbing fight.

    He is an Aussie he has beaten Jeremy Horn in the UFC got beaten by forrest the other time. Good ground guy standups a bit lacking last time I seen him.

    lol @ "jobber"

    they have jobbers in MMA too?

    I guess that Edwin guy from the last TUF is a super jobber.

    hahahah i haven't heard the term "jobber" used since my wwf days. I wouldn't say Sinosic is a the biggest jobber. That guy that Sakarai knocked the living fuck out of a year ago......... Olaf Alonzo is probably the biggest jobber.

    If i remember, Elvis Sinosic use to post in Sherdog's fighter forum. Funny dude, hope he does alright and puts on a good show.

    Elvis is a great guy and far from a jobber. He gives his all and as you can see from his resume' has lost to some serious talent. It's not like he padded his record or ducked fights. His fight against Forrest was stopped early and was bullshit IMO.

    Why is Sinosic still fighting? He sucks?

    And im glad that Forrest Griffin is being exposed for the lack luster talent he is. Machida will destroy him.

    Im eager to watch Bisping fight, though. :coold:

    Arlovski vs Werdum is :eek3:

    and of course, i really want to see Cro Cop turn whozits head into burger.
