    Gonzaga has won his last two fights by submission

    Miller is coming off a loss that he looked like shit in.



    Am I the only one who thinks Gonzaga should be spending less time fighting and more time getting the Vipers repaired in case the cylons jump into the system?

    Do you think that's enough?

    I don't know, I'm not sure either way, but it doesn't feel like enough.

    Yes... Miller looked horrible, and he had a pretty good layoff...

    Gonzaga has looked really good lately and rumour is he might be a cyclon himself...

    If that last loss isn't enough to light a fire under his ass I don't know what is. It was embarassing.

    I haven't heard about the good layoff thing. But we're only talking one fight.

    I don't know or care what cyclon means but Gonzaga's a joke name from the past. It's a joke to see him on the main card after just 2 wins, don't you think?

    Not really, it wasn't like he ground out two boring decisions, he won in a very impressive fashion. He seems to be going back to his strengths instead of trying to repeat the miracle KO of cro-cop.

    He is good enough to main card regardless based on his name.

    Miller was kinda blackballed after the in ring fight with the CG camp fight on national tv....

    Only fight he had in almost 2 years was a washed up sakuraba in japan...

    And he looked like shit against Bisping.... I wouldnt have been surprised if he had been cut it was so bad.


    And Gonzaga is one of the final five cylons....

    This is why I ask stupid questions to people I know will smack a wrench over my head for doing it.

    Sometimes you want the biased answers.

    Thanks.

    I hope Mir beats Cain, no idea why but I would love to see that
    I also hope Mayhem wins & gets back to main card status
    JDS & Reem, I have no favorite I just hope its a great fight
    Roy vs Silva can be a wild fight, looking forward to that & hoping Nelson comes through

    Not sure if you mean an insult or not by "biased answer"..

    I mean, I think Mayhem is a god fighter and I even picked him to win.. I WANT him to win actually, because I think he has a lot of talent and I would hate to see him cut which will probably happen if he turns in a stinker of a fight.

    Gonzaga, I fully admit looked like a shit fighter after the cro-cop win, but I think he honestly has changed his game up (well, back) and could be a good mid carder/gatekeeper for a while.

    Do I think he can be a contender/title shot guy? I dunno yet, he showed promise early in his career but you never know with fighters.... HEavyweight isn't exactly the deepest division the UFC has... I mean almost all of the contenders are on this card.

    I just really like the idea of a HW main card.... let's all hope injuies don't fuck it up in the next month...

    Also, Shane Del Rosario is ranked 31st, and he is 11 - 0

    This card destroys the "Strikeforce : HWGP" ones...

    I'm not sure if you're joking, but since when does Cain have a glass jaw?

    Mir beats Cain and somehow manages to beat JDS/Overeem, we're talking Mir as a top 5 HW of all time...but a lot of things have to go his way and I don't see him getting past the 1st vs Cain.

    SDR is a legit dark horse. I was hoping he would get an easier fight for his UFC debut though. It seems like GG is finally back to his roots (that KO kick on Mirko was the best and worst thing to happen to him) and that's using his BJJ.
