    There comes a point when Joe Silva has to sit back and just laugh at something like this…

    That is, if he hasn’t killed himself yet.

    what is it going to take to get Joe Silva to jump off the empire state buliding is what the head line of this story should be.

  • Nick Havok says:

    Despite all the injuries the card still looks pretty solid.

    While unfortunate, this happens in this sport. Strikeforce when through the exact same thing with the Carrano vs Cyborg Card. Every day it seemed a fight was getting changed. Hopefully the string of injuries will end soon as there are lots of guys on the sidelines right now that I would love to see back in the cage.

    it still looks like an interesting card, the Lauzons, Paul/Dustin, Miller/Sherk, Kampmann, Ellenberger, Munoz. I just dont know if there is a major selling point to the viewers who only buy occaisional events.

    i wanna see Kampmann fight Ellenberger, that would be pukka
