I couldn't find a thread on the UFC for some reason, so i'll open one and see how it does. First of all, congratulations to Rashad Evans. I really like this guy and i think he has a great future in front of him. But his gameplan against 'the Iceman' was spot on. He played Chuck at his own game and played the counter punch, finishing Chuck with his very own looping right. Great win for him and i'll be interested to see who he fights next. My money is on Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson but we'll see. Second of all i'd like to say how pleased i am that Rich 'Ace' Franklin was able to step up to 205lbs. He was such a great Middleweight Champion before the emergence of Anderson 'Spider' Silva. I love his all round game. The Light Heavyweight Division is at an all time high now and Franlin will only add to that. I'd also like to wish Mike 'the Count' Bisping luck next month. He takes on Chris 'Lights Out' Leben in what could be a flat out war. I always feel nervous for him on his home turf. Its a lot of pressure for him and he needs to keep his focus. But he has improved with every fight and his last fight was his best yet. He's really starting to hit the ground running now and must be closer to the Middleweight Title, especially if he wins this next fight. I think he could give Silva a run for his money and win or lose, i think that would be a huge match that would 'make' Bisping. And finally, what does everyone think about the return of Randy 'the Natural' Couture? And the fight against Brock Lesner of all people. Should be a great fight and could be the making of Brock Lesner. The thing that really bugs me though is how its classed as a title match :shrug: OK so Couture never really lost the belt a year ago, but he left. If theres one thing i really dont like about the UFC, its the use of the term 'interim' Champion. What the hell is that? So we have Nogeuro (sp) and Couture as Heavyweight Champion? So we now have Couture Vs Brock for the Heavyweight Title. We have Mir Vs Nogeuro (sp) hosting the Ultimate Fighter (that should be fun (Matt Serra and Matt Hughes anyone?)) to headline that show with the Heavyweight Title on the line. Then the winners of those fights go head to head for the 'Undisputed' Heavyweight Title. Whats undisputed exactly? If Brock wins, then he has won the Title off the guy that wasn't really the Champion anyway. If Couture wins then he still has to become the Champion 'proper' a few months later. If Mir wins then he is suddenly the Semi-Champion and could face the prospect of facing Brock again, but Brock has the same belt as him? And if Nogeuro (sp) wins then he is still Champion? But is he? I mean, if he beats Mir, he would have gone from winning his last match and walking out Champion, to winning his next match and being an interim Champion?? If theres one thing that the WWE makes sense of, its when they call a match 'a number one contender match.' So surely the Randy Couture Vs Brock Lesner match should be called 'the number one contender match.'
