    I just read in one of the Sherdog stories the it was announced that the Dan Henderson vs Rampage fight /will/ unify the 205 titles. Im kinda excited :x:

    " The UFC officially announced the main event between PRIDE middleweight champion Dan Henderson (Pictures) (22-5) and UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson (Pictures) (27-6) in a bout for the "unified" 205-pound world championship. "

    I think Pride is being dissolved into the UFC.

    Fedor just reached a 6-8 fight verbal agreement with the UFC according to his website. Should be signed soon.

    I'm happy the two orgs are becoming one. But I miss Pride so much :(

    so does hendo keep the 183 belt if he loses, then get a title fight at 185 to unify that belt?

    they really turned this whole thing into a shit fuck.

    I will always hate Zuffa for killing Pride this way.

    anybody know what the LW cutoff will be? 155 or 160?

    and elbows + no knees to the ground will suck for fedor. he cuts too easily :hs:

    55, that leaves gomi, Diaz, and a few other Pride LW's in no man's land weight wise.

    Gomi can make 155, he definitely isn't as big as people say he is

    It is going to be the same at the Wandy fight. They are fighting at light heavy, so that is the only belt at stake.

    I still think this is a bad idea.

    They might not even acknowledge Hendos MW belt, I remember reading some interview where Hendo was saying the UFC asked him to choose which belt he wanted to defend LW/MW, and he made it sound like whichever he didnt choose would be sorta forgotten about. But if he loses agaisnt rampage they might just say "fuck it" and have him fight for the title in the MW division after a few wins just for the sake of easy hype.

    punches to the face while mounted is much more exciting to me.

    I refuse to believe that hendo would rather defend his LHW belt.
    as well if that were the case i dont think they'r have him prancing around everywhere with two belts slung over his shoulders.

    How many times has Fedor actually been in a position long enough to take an elbow

    i'm assuming you mean how many times has he been mounted

    a good amount of times, and you still get get elbowed from top mount

    The way Fedor sits while one the ground, just outside of the persons guard, it makes it alot harder to reach with an elbow

    i think some folks are already forgetting that pride was dying already, they did it to themselves, and zuffa never would have had the opportunity to buy if they weren't
