No GSP sucks though, I wanted to see his first title defense!

I have no doubt that we will see the best Rampage has to offer...His last fight against Lindland on the WFA show, was a very good fight, against the #1 eighty-five pounder in the world...Most importantly though, he knows that the big money is in the Liddell rematch. If he wants to get the title shot and the HUGE payday that will come with it, he needs to really come with it...

Just hope he doesn't pull a Heath Herring. :lol:

No doubt

Just hope he doesn't pull a Heath Herring. :lol:Well, Herring kind of had a ****ed up deal...

When he was brought in, he was probably next in line to fight Sylvia, with a good chance of winning the title..Then news broke that Mirko was coming...Herring all of a sudden was shot back down to earth, there was no way he was going to beat Crocop for the title, so he instantly became a midcard fighter...

Rampage has a legit shot at winning the title, he knows he can beat Chuck, and the UFCs main reason for bringing him in was for that fight...

It should be a fun show to watch, but I dont really see any fight of the year candidates...It seems like the whole purpose of the show is to showcase the big name fighters..The best fight will probably be Sam Hoger Vs. Lyoto Machida, but it might not even be on TV...

i figure they want Cro Cop and Rampage to have some highlite reel material for those fans who think MMA begins and ends with the UFC product, and are feeding them some victims before their title fights in order to build them up and build interest in them.

as good as Anderson Silva is, i was shocked to see him get a title fight as soon as he did, because he had little name recognition among UFC fans at the time.

but they built his SPIKE TV match with Leben as the winner is getting a title shot. They of course wanted Leben to win, but of course that didn't happen!!

i did not hear that prior to the fight. interesting. i was just glad to see "the cat smasher" get humbled by Silva.

speaking of which, i keep hearing that Lutter presents a style clash for Silva that will be difficult. do you know what kind of take down defense Silva has?

Lutter seemed very plodding, not at all quick in his fights ive seen, so i am just wondering if he has got the skills to get Silva on his back?

Silva has very good takedown defense judging from some of his older fights I've seen.

thanks for the info... i know UFC has to sell their title fight, but when i hear Rogan claim Lutter presents a matchup problem for Silva, i aint buying it, after watching Silva dissect and punish Rich Franklin.

Couple points I'd like to add:
1. Silva is a very legit BJJ blackbelt. He's beyond dangerous, even for a methodical Lutter. he owns that division. noones in his class in the UFC.
2. Rampage is not the same fighter he was during the first Liddell fight. Since he's lost the thugish mentality, and the frequent "mofos" in his speech, he's also lost his fire. The guys game is missing something.
3. crocop being the class of the UFC heavyweight division isn't saying much.
4. don't really care about the GSP Serra fight. GSP is going to pound Serra as quickly as Serra will allow him to. That fight will be played very cautiously and should be boring...throw in the fact that these two kinda like eachother, and it only gets worse. Im not talking about a chess match on the ground, im talking about a snooze fest on the ground, just north of laying and praying.

Thats my 2 cents.

I'd also like to add....since the time I saw Kevin Randleman fight Cro-cop and crocop got KTFO'd bad...anything can happen...this sport is truly amazing. the above post is just my feelings if things go according to expectations.

Lutter isn't a slouch at BJJ either though, in fact I would say hes better than Silva...I do think Anderson will win though, I don't think Lutter will be able to get him down, and there is no way he can trade punches with him...

Breaking news regading this fight:Travis Lutter was originally scheduled to fight Anderson Silva on Saturday, Feb 3rd for the Middleweight Championship, however the fight was changed to a non-title contest due to Lutter's inability to make weight. He could only get down to 186.5, just half a pound away....
I will never understand not making weight, this is the guys biggest fight ever, and he ****s it all up by not making weight...If he doesn't either win or have a VERY entertaining fight, I doubt Dana will have him back.



2. Rampage is not the same fighter he was during the first Liddell fight. Since he's lost the thugish mentality, and the frequent "mofos" in his speech, he's also lost his fire. The guys game is missing something.
I don't think he was even the better fighter when he fought Chuck, I thought Chuck was unprepared and had a bad showing...He is still a good fighter, and very marketable though...


3. crocop being the class of the UFC heavyweight division isn't saying much.Yes, the UFC HW division sucks, but it is getting better and Crocop does bring legitimacy to it...Ratings are obviously very debatable, but in the most widely accepted top ten, Mirko is #2 in the world at heavyweight He has fought all of the best fighters at that weight, and beat most of them...



4. don't really care about the GSP Serra fight. GSP is going to pound Serra as quickly as Serra will allow him to. That fight will be played very cautiously and should be boring...throw in the fact that these two kinda like eachother, and it only gets worse.

Thats my 2 cents.This fight is not on the show, St. Pierre injured his knee in training a month ago...I disagree with your assessment of the fight though, I think it would have been very exciting. Ive never seen a GSP fight that was boring, Im not even sure its possible...The BJ Penn fight was the only time he fought a real BJJ specialist, and even though it went to the judges, it was still a great fight...

Its nice to be able to talk MMA on here finally!:D

1. I was just stating the BJJ thing about Silva, because folks assume he's a pure stand-up guy cause his stand up is so devastating. Lutter's strength is the ground no doubt.
Thanks for the breaking news! That sucks, If Lutter gets handled, he won't be invited back for sure. Very lame not making weight.

2. I think Rampage was in the midst of a meteoric acension in that first fight. He was killing people. He was throwing around Tito in training...He was at the top of his game. I do agree that he is totally marketable though, and a great addition. Hey, I like the guy! I want to see him succeed. Too bad he'd probably never fight Tito tho.

3. I still put Nog over cro-cop.

4. I know this fight is post-poned between GSP and Serra. I just think its a bad match-up for Serra big time. His power is a huge issue, and he's not gonna be able to do anything to GSP...hell he could barely take down Shonie Carter! Its gonna be a matter of survival, hence, could turn into a boring fight if he succeeds in surviving. And don't get me wrong, I like Serra, and he is a bjj specialist, but lets just say he is no where near BJ Penn's league. BJ Penn is a true MMA freak.

You see Lindland subbed Carlos newton tonight in Houston? 2nd round guillotine. I liked Newton back in the day, but he's clearly not the same fighter he was. other guys (like Lindlan, Couture, Liddell) age like wine.

Lutter went from being an American underdog who would have the entire crowd behind him in a title fight. To now being a guy who pissed off everyone who bought a ticket cause he screwed them out of seeing a title fight.

Lutter will get destroyed in Rd 1 anyway, now its just gonna pop the fans into a roar of cheers!!!!!

yea, I wonder if his strategy is going to change. He may be more daring, and thus get KTFO much sooner than later, now that the whole situation is F'd.

lets be honest, nobody on that stupid Tv show was any good. And nobody on that show would last 1 round with the champ.

Silva is a beast, he will destroy Lutter who won a game-show esentially to get this fight. If it goes past 1 round I would be shocked.

LOL...and i think Serra poses even less threat to his opponent. He had trouble taking down EVERYBODY in that competition. he is far too weak to fight in that weight class. whether it was GSP or Hughes, he would'nt have faired well. As far as Lutter, at least he stood the best chance against the 185 lb champ, but barring a fluke/miracle, he's gonna get smoked.

Thanks for the breaking news! That sucks, If Lutter gets handled, he won't be invited back for sure. Very lame not making weight. Yeah, alot of people don't know Silva has BJJ skills since he hasn't had to use them yet...I think it suits him to stay on his feet over here, Id say in the 185lb division, he has the best stand up skills by far...I thought him against Franklin would be more of a stand up war. He proved his stand up skills were head and shoulders above who most people would have said was the best in the UFC MW division at the time....


2. I think Rampage was in the midst of a meteoric acension in that first fight. He was killing people. He was throwing around Tito in training...He was at the top of his game. I do agree that he is totally marketable though, and a great addition. Hey, I like the guy! I want to see him succeed. Too bad he'd probably never fight Tito tho.Yeah Id like to see Rampage and Tito, it definitely could happen too...I remember when Chuck and Tito were friends and training partners, look at them now...Not to mention that Tito/Rampage would be big money if Quinton he shows up for his next couple fights...


3. I still put Nog over cro-cop. Well, there is definitely a case for Nog...He is the one guy besides Fedor that Crocop hasn't beaten..(The Hunt/Mirko fight was so close, I really wish we could see a rematch...Im pretty sure Crocop would win.)


4. I know this fight is post-poned between GSP and Serra. I just think its a bad match-up for Serra big time.

BJ Penn is a true MMA freak.BJ, is one of the best in the business, I love watching him fight...I guess we have to wait until the end of TUF5 to see him again, probably agianst Jens Pulver........

I still think the fight will be good when it does happen, even if its a short fight with GSP dominating, it should be full of excitement...

yea thats just insane. Bodog must be paying these guys a fortune, because it really isn't a great move for either of these guys careers. Whats Fedor got to gain? And Lindland may possibly die if Fedor gives his usual dose of GnP. I think there were contract issues with Lindland if Im not mistaken, regarding the UFC.

Winners in bold...

UFC 67 ON SUPER BOWL WEEKEND: FEBRUARY 3, 2007 IN LAS VEGAS

Main Card Bouts:

-Mirko Cro Cop vs. Eddie Sanchez--“Right leg: hospital. Left leg: morgue” Easiest fight to call in a long time...Mirko is at (-1400) while Sanchez is at (+900)....

-Anderson Silva vs. Travis Lutter--Cmon, this is gonna be a massacre...

-Quinton Jackson vs. Marvin Eastman--Rampage should come out and have a great showing, it will set up some good fights, and huge paydays down the line...

-Roger Huerta vs. John Halverson--Although, I think the odds are worth taking a shot on Halverson(+600)....

-Scott Smith vs. Patrick Cote--This one is a little too close to call, Ill take Cote in a boring fight....

Preliminary Bouts:

-Lyoto Machida vs. Sam Hoger--I hope this fight is shown on TV, I think it will be the fight of the night....Anyone who doesnt know who Lyoto is, should find out, now. Hers a hint he has beaten Franklin, Bonnar and BJ Penn and hes undefeated...

-Tyson Griffin vs. Frank Edgar--Again, I think the odds are worth taking a shot on Edgar(+550)...

-Jorge Rivera vs. Terry Martin--Another one I'm not so sure about, its a coin toss for me...

-Dustin Hazelett vs. Diego Saraiva--Who really cares except for their mothers....Ill take the guy who has fought in the UFC before, and who trains with Rich Franklin...

Well, there is definitely a case for Nog...He is the one guy besides Fedor that Crocop hasn't beaten..(The Hunt/Mirko fight was so close, I really wish we could see a rematch...Im pretty sure Crocop would win.)


CroCop hasn't beaten Hunt either. As far as Nogueira, if you watched the fight, CroCop was destroying Nogueira until he got submitted. Mirko lost because he had basically no takedown defense. Today, that's different and he'd likely win over Nogueira.

Today, CroCop ranking-wise is probably #2, second only to Fedor.

RUMOR is that with Cro Cop coming out to the PRIDE theme song last night that a huge deal in in the works.

Either a PRIDE vs UFC super show (put on by UFC)

Or UFC is going to buy PRIDE and merge and just run shows in the US and Japan.

Silva is a pretty damn good fighter. I fought some guys from Brazil back in the day, they were all pretty good. It's their mindset and their lifestyle there I think. If you have to use your skills for real in a year a few times it helps alot. Being from Canada and a nice guy, I would only get a chance to fight in tournaments.....or playing hockey.:lol:

That rumor has been swirling for weeks.

Lutter put up much more of a fight than i expected... my guess is there are some people who are now rethinking how they want to fight Silva, even though he won on the ground and showed good BJJ skills in the guard. his arms and legs are disproportionately long for someone who 5'11" tall.

but Lutter showed Silva is suscpetable to being taken down, and Rogan called it right; Lutter missed an arm bar in that scramble in the first round that could've been big trouble for Silva.

but as stated previously, i agree that loss is probably the end of Travis Lutter in the UFC; Dana White preached constantly on TUF about second chances, and not screwing them up when you get them.

Re: Matt Lindland, he fought an early fight or two for UFC, and was fairly well hyped at the time, but was purely a wrestler, and didnt fare to well. the guy is a much better fighter now.

The show was loaded with big names but the matches sucked!!I thought it was a great card for the casual fan, and to hype some names...As a fighting fan, I thought it was "ok", it was really saved by the Griffin/Edgar fight...

Noone comentates like Bas imo.
