    BAM POW

    I knew it!! Welcome back Belfort!!!

  • mac wilson says:

    I wanna see video of this conference call…..hopefully Dana and the boys videotape it from thier end and we can catch the whole call.

    If Fedor can’t get over this co-promotion business that he’s all about….I’m done caring about his future in MMA.

  • manny says:

    YES! Vitor vs Franklin @ 103 & now who is Tito fighting ? I knew Fedor wouldn’t sign with the ufc. Looks to be fighting in Japan

  • mac wilson says:

    Great to hear about Tito and Vitor!

    See…..even Tito knows the UFC is the place to be……even after all the bad blood.

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Daley Rothwell and Louzon are great additions. Vitor vs Franklin at what weight?

  • mac wilson says:

    what about Horodecki??

  • jb391981 says:

  • hindsightufuk says:

    nice signings! props to the ufc
    but fuck ESPN, i’m in the UK and i know no fucker who subscribes to some shit sport channel that only shows golf and fucking nascar, i dont even know what the fuck nascar is. now we all gotta subscribe to this shit. fuck ESPN unless they gonna make a european channel and not show fucking football.
    yes im fucking bitter.

  • mac wilson says:

    Chuck and Forrest have alredy volounteered for Tito….I’m sure Rashad would want another go too.

  • t-shreds says:

    Fedor could have signed with the UFC and had fights against fairly stiff competition! Instead he goes to japan to beat up a bunch of soup cans… M-1 and Fedor are poverty!

  • edub says:

    GOtta love Horodecki at LW. Man he looked good against Yves edwards.

  • mac wilson says:

  • edub says:

    Goddamnit. SO why the fuck wouldnt Vitor fight Mousasi at 205. Now Im pissd.

  • edub says:

    @hindsightufuk

    ESPN UK will be showing English & Scottish premier league football.It will also broadcast in HD.At £9 a month (for Sky Sports subscribers) it works out cheaper that Setanta did for me.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    ah ok, you have sky i take it? i use virgin, means i used to get Setanta free, i dunno if i want to pay any extra ££s just to watch UFC once per month. i fucking hate football! guess i’m back to downloading again

  • Jstew3785 says:

    Hindsight- Nascar stands for – Non Athletic Sport Centered Around Rednecks

  • avbuse says:

    Hindsight – if you used to get Setanta for free, means you’re on Virgin XL. this means you’ll get ESPN and ESPNHD for free too.

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Tito vs Coleman is a good way for him to come back, but coleman is getting the shaft a little.

  • Super stoked to see Vitor back. I hope he returns to his old form. He was such a badass to watch. One of the most exciting fighters ever for sure.
