Aurelio vs Guida - I'm gonna go with Guida, but this is such an even matchup in my eyes as of right now.


This is a very hard card to pick, unlike Stacked.

8/9 Again. So close.

Its true. He felt Heath tap and still held on. Mazzagati had to separate them.

Edit: From what I am reading online, he did that cause Heath had a tshirt of Babalu's mugshot from an recent arrest at the weigh ins.

the video will probably get taken down pretty quickly, but it's a pretty classless move. he beat the shit out of the dude and has to be a tough guy and take it to another level. that's the shit that makes people thing mma is still a brutal sport.

I don't think it's that big of a deal. Maybe this will teach Heath to shut his mouth.

he didn't hold the choke in for that much longer than BJ Penn did to Pulver, no one made a big deal about that.

Good for Babalu. That punk/pussy doesn't belong in the same ring as Sobral and had no business wearing the T-shirt. I hope he had fun.

Seriously...its an incredibly intense competition...and like boxing, when one person takes it too far...they often get the retaliation in the ring. Think of how many weigh-in fights boxing has...this isn't really that different. And the thing that strikes me when I thought about this was the boxing video where in the stare down, the one boxer kissed the other...and then got knocked the fuck out.

He only held it for an extra 2 or so seconds after the ref tapped him out of it...was it right? No...did the guy deserve the beating he took? Yes. Is it going to mar the sport? It hasn't quite broken through to the point that ESPN is going to run a cover story on it (that I've seen) or one of the major online sources will cover it...so, I think it will be fine

Edit...No mention on ESPN or Yahoo's MMA pages so far

Haha Heath Herring knocked out Yoshihiro Nakao for the same reason.

I'm really excited for UFC 75...sort of excited for UFC 76...and completely not excited for UFC 77. I know there are some ok matches on the card, but nothing that makes me want to shell out 40 bucks. Especially not that Tito/Rashad bullshit again. Looks like I'll be at Hooters watching that one for free.

I didn't think what Babalu did was bad at all. Heath had it coming to him.

I'm glad GSP and Randy got the wins too.

no, he had the 8 minutes of getting punched in the face before he tapped coming to him, once he tapped Babalu should be man enough to take the win, but he had to be a tough guy and pour it on to a guy he'd just beaten down.
