Cerrone is going to fuck Pettis up, so not likely. Uber pumped for Saturday. I can't fucking wait for Rory/BJ, that's the real main event to me. Captain Canada Jr. is going to smash BJ and I can't wait. Plus, the fact that he's Canadian makes it all the better for me. Watching Gus maul Shogun will be fun, as I always love watching a Shogun beat down. Diaz/Bendo is interesting. I've gone back and fourth on it a bunch of times over the last few days. Bendo has more ways to win but I'm leaning towards Diaz overwhelming him and getting the decision.

Diaz via Decision
Gus via 2nd round TKO
Rory via Decision

Edit - Just saw this



I really wish he would add American Gangster as his nickname but I would have to think that there would be some legal issues with that due to the movie and I think Jay Z also has an album called that as well. Still, Chael "The American Gangster" Sonnen sounds right.

I think Benson will walk away champ. Diaz was getting dropped left and right from Cerrones kicks, and Bendo kicks fucking hard. It's those damn mountain sized thighs. Couple that up with great sub defense, a great ground game, and being able to go toe to toe with Frankie Edgar both times around, I think Benson is just a better fighter overall. Benson also looks huge compared to a Diaz.

Nate definitely has a chance though.

Even though spiritually I want a Diaz to hold a UFC Title, I put 20 on Benson for Saturday.

Meh, Griffin would have been embarrassed, now he will probably get an easy fight when he returns.

Ronda Rousey meets Liz Carmouche in first UFC women's title fight at UFC 157

Quote:
A day after a bit of a tease about Ronda Rousey's first UFC fight, things finally are official.

But Rousey won't be fighting Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, as Wednesday's rumor had her meeting. Instead, Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be meeting Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) as the first defense of her new UFC women's bantamweight title at UFC 157 in February.

UFC President Dana White made the announcement following Thursday's pre-event news conference for UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle, and he presented Rousey with her new UFC belt.

UFC 157 takes place Feb. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Rousey vs. Carmouche will be the main event of the card, which will air on pay-per-view, FX and Facebook.

News broke this past month that Rousey would migrate over from Strikeforce, where she was the women's bantamweight champ, to become the first female fighter in UFC history. But just who her first opponent would be and when that fight would take place were up in the air, despite White telling multiple news outlets that it was official that Rousey was in the UFC.

Her Strikeforce contract and Zuffa's deal with Strikeforce broadcast partner Showtime appeared to be potential stumbling blocks for expediting the process. But with White's presentation of Rousey in Seattle, those hurdles appear to have been cleared – at least well enough to announce a fight for her.

On Wednesday, the UFC's Brazilian website mistakenly announced a Rousey UFC debut at the same event, UFC 157, but had her main eventing against Santos – which the UFC explained as a technical glitch and later removed.

Now, a day later, it will indeed be Rousey headlining that card in her backyard – she hails from Southern California – but against Carmouche.

"It's going to happen eventually," Rousey said at the news conference of a potential fight against Santos. "I can't make these girls fight who don't want to fight me. (Carmouche) was the only one who stepped up, and it speaks a lot to her. When the other girls come around, they know where I'm at."

Rousey said receiving her UFC championship belt and having the fight announced on the heels of a press conference for Saturday's card, which features Benson Henderson's lightweight title defense against Nate Diaz, came as a surprise to her.

"I didn't even know about this till this morning," she said. "I don't even know what to make of it. It means a lot, and we have a lot to prove. I think the women are here to stay, and I think we're going to prove it."

White, of course, long said he didn't foresee a day when women would fight in the UFC, owning that belief to a perceived lack of depth in the women's divisions. But with Rousey's emergence over the last year as a bona fide star not just of women's MMA, but of all MMA, he came around.

She enters the fight, of course, unbeaten with a record consisting solely of first-round armbar submission wins. She won the Strikeforce title in March by stopping Miesha Tate, who went longer with her than all her other pro opponents combined. In August, she defended the title with an armbar of Sarah Kaufman.

Carmouche took a 5-0 record into a Strikeforce women's bantamweight title fight against Marloes Coenen in March 2011, but was stopped with a triangle choke in the fourth round. Carmouche took that fight on short notice, filling in for an injured Tate. Her next outing, she lost a decision to Kaufman.

But since then, she has back-to-back wins under the Invicta banner, and both by stoppage.

UFC boss says Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz likely if challenger accepts

Quote:
SEATTLE – Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) and Johny Hendricks (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) may just have to wait their turn.

Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) has asked to face former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC), and UFC President Dana White said he feels obligated to grant the UFC welterweight kingpin his request.

The UFC boss on Thursday revealed the plans following a UFC on FOX 5 pre-event press conference in Seattle.

"Georges St-Pierre went on vacation," White said. "When he came back, we were talking about Anderson Silva. He said, 'I want Nick Diaz. Me and Nick Diaz have unfinished business. We were supposed to fight. That's the fight I want now.'

"Georges St-Pierre has been a phenomenal champion, a phenomenal human being and just a great guy to work with for us. He doesn't ask for things. If he wants to fight Nick Diaz, and Nick Diaz wants to fight him, that's probably the fight we'll make."

White said he has yet to officially offer Diaz the fight, simply because he couldn't find him, but if the former Strikeforce champ is willing, a UFC title fight awaits. A targeted date for the matchup was not revealed.

"I haven't even talked to Nick yet," White admitted. "I was trying to track him down this week, which is always fun. So I called (Nick's brother) Nate (Diaz), and Nate told me, 'Listen, if you talk to him, tell him I'm looking for him, too.'"

Hendricks, who currently boasts a five-fight win streak that includes victories over perennial contenders Martin Kampmann, Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch, is considered by many to be the division's true No. 1 contender. However, White said St-Pierre's wishes take priority over any perceived rankings, and he expects Hendricks to fight again before receiving his own potential title shot.

"Listen, Johny Hendricks has got some great fights," White said. "When you talk about winning in spectacular fashion, this guy hits people so hard he skids across the octagon. But he's in no position to demand anything. Georges St-Pierre is the champ, has been forever, and if that's the fight he wants, then that's probably the fight we're going to give him if Diaz accepts it."

Upon hearing White's statements, Hendricks immediately took to Twitter to voice his frustration.

"I don't really know what to say but please @danawhite give me a shot," Hendricks wrote. "@GeorgesStPierre if u want a fight I will give him anything he can take."

Silva, of course, is the UFC's current middleweight champ and the only UFC title holder who can boast a title rein longer than St-Pierre. White had promised to make a superfight between the two champions, but posturing on both sides as to exactly where the two would meet on weight led to some concern as to whether or not the fight would actually take place. White did not rule out a future arrangement, but St-Pierre apparently wants to face the fiery Diaz before considering his fellow champion.

St-Pierre and Diaz were originally scheduled to fight in October 2011 at UFC 137, but Diaz failed to show for a pair of promotional appearances and was pulled from the bout. In an odd twist, he was later placed back on the card against B.J. Penn after St-Pierre was forced to withdraw from the event with a training injury. The St-Pierre vs. Diaz bout was later planned for UFC 143, but St-Pierre was also pulled from that card, which allowed Carlos Condit to step in and defeat Diaz in a hotly-contested unanimous decision and claim a UFC interim title belt. Diaz then tested positive for marijuana metabolites in a post-fight drug screen and was subsequently suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission through February 2013.

Diaz, known almost as much for his trashtalking and aggressive demeanor as for his ample fighting skills, has long been under St-Pierre's skin. Following Diaz's UFC 137 win over Penn, White said the French-Canadian made an impassioned plea to face the hot-headed Californian.

"I've known Georges St-Pierre since 2004," White said at the UFC 137 post-event press conference. "He's one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and he's always exactly the same no matter what the situation is, no matter who he's fighting. Since 2004, I've never seen him like he was tonight.

"[St-Pierre] said, and I quote – you're going to think I'm full of [expletive], but this is the truth – I quote, 'He's the most disrespectful human being I've ever met, and I'm going to put the worst beating you've ever seen on him in the UFC."

Kinda fucks Hendricks over, especially considering Nick is coming off a loss but I understand why they would do it. I think GSP/Hendricks is the more interesting fight, to be honest. We know GSP is going to grapplefuck Diaz and win a decision. GSP/Hendricks is a little more up in the air. Something tells me if Hendricks connects he could finish GSP and that would be fucking crazy. It would then no doubt lead to an immediate rematch in which GSP beats the fuck out of him and gets his belt back.

Hendricks and GSP is alot more intriguing because of that one hit Hendricks can land, which can change the entire equation. Hendricks is a great wrestler as well apparently.

I'm more interested in it then Anderson/GSP or GSP/Diaz tbh. As Walls said, I think GSP wins a decision over Diaz, but Hendricks has a much better chance at GSP then Diaz. Diaz/GSP would sell more though, obviously.
