    the kalib statement on that page doesn't add up. his reluctance to engage didn't seem to be due to injury, more mindset.

    Because they were just basically told "you suck".

    And who the fuck are you, go back to the main forum.

    We have enough new people in here, we don't need you.

    Hence, I HAVE paid actively on this site for awhile.

    You, have not.

    I quit paying when they took AH away, you haven't ever given anything to this site ever.

    The main forum got closed, you got bored and came here to annoy this shit out of me with posts like

    You aren't wanted here, your opinions don't matter here.

    Go the fuck away.

    The Swick vs. Marcus Davis fight or the Vera vs. Werdum fight seem like better headliners than rashad vs. james irvin imo. Either way, this is good news; although it woulda been nice to see Chuck vs. Shogun/Rashad. Awesome card for a fight night.

    That's great news because all the recent Spike shows I can remember have been awesome.

    IMO this is better for the fighters. They know that they aren't PPV headliner material, they still get just as much money, and they get more exposure for more potential money in the future.

    If anything this sucks for the UFC execs, but I think they are rich enough as it is.

    UFC 86? wat?

    I am sure they mean 85. I hope this is true. I haven't seen the news elsewhere.
