    reading other articles now. He wants full purse or he wants his walking papers. He wants a union as well.

    Hunt is a fan favorite, the master of the walk away KO. He has 3 walk away KO now? I wonder what the UFC will do with him now?

    yeah, he wanted half the purse. But Hunt is a fighter, he wont leave the UFC. Remember when UFC wanted to buy out his contract and Hunt said he rather fight to earn his money. The guy wont leave the sport or the UFC.

    Dude, that fight was total trash. Lesner should not have fought.

    From your article:
    Jones’ out-of-competition test was on June 16 whereas Lesnar’s came on June 28. Because the results of Lesnar’s test were not confirmed until July 14 – five days after UFC 200 – the ex-champ fought and won a decision over Hunt (12-10-1 MMA, 7-4-1 UFC). Hunt subsequently demanded the UFC award him all of Lesnar’s purse or grant him a contractual release.

    I heard about Hunt demanding Brock's purse (the report I saw only said half his purse) or leaving the UFC. Should be interesting to see how that plays out.

    Agreed. Holm was beating Tate soundly. I had here winning all 4 rounds and even the 5th round until the very end when she made the mistake. I don't know if I would say Tate is overrated. She's just got a different style then most. She relies on patience, toughness and grappling. All 3 of which she is fantastic at. She doesn't strike that well at all but here biggest hole is that her strike defense is really poor. Almost no head movement at all, she just plots around slowly, which makes an easy target. Nunes is the real deal. She is big for that division, she's a brutal striker and a great finisher. All of which Holm is but I believe Holm has much better endurance. I would LOVE to see Holm vs Nunes.

    Yeah, the DC and Spider fight was a joke. I knew it was a joke before it even happened. UFC 199 was a much better event then UFC 200. Hunt vs Lesnar was painfully dull. Personally, I still think Cain is the best Heavyweight there is. He isn't going to just plot around throwing 1 punch every minute like most of these guys. And who would have thought Browne would just tuck tail and hide from the bell. Jesus, did you sign up to fight or did you sign up to puss out and run, lol.

    I feel bad for Frankie. He's just stuck between two weight classes. Too small for where he is now, not long enough arms to really reach the best of those guys. Too slow for the weight below him. He's a stud, just neither class is a great fit for him.
    Something about Tate that just says that she is just average. Again, not a great striker, not a great puncher, not great defense, not a great chin, not a great submission fighter. Not only that, most of her fights end up with her face completely smashed in.

    Feel bad for Browne, the guy is stuck in a camp because of his GF. How bad is it when every camp out there talks about how bad their coach is.

    Don't feel bad for Frankie, he just isn't good enough. Other fighters have passed him. Just like it happened to Penn, Iceman, Fedor, Shogun.

I don't really know how much change is coming. Dana is staying on as the main guy. The sport has grown (as you can see from the sales numbers) and it will continue to grow but you can't blame the brothers for selling when you're looking at that type of turn around. Boxing is dying a slow death and it's fans are pouring into the UFC by the millions every year. Even when I drive through the streets of Phoenix every day I notice less and less 'Karate' and 'Judo' centers and in their place are 'MMA' centers. Who knows, maybe these new owners will be looking at starting up their own MMA Network Channel.

    Miesha is overrated. Not a great wrestler, not a real good striker.
    The fight between Holm and Shevchenko is suppose to be good.
    I really like Pena, her dominance over Cat was impressive.

    UFC 200 was a little disappointing because of Jones pull out. There wasn't that big time fight. You big time event featured Miesha and her first defense with an unknown challenger. You co main event featured a big guy who is terrified of getting hit. All he does is lay and pray. Fight was boring. Feel bad for Hunt though as he couldn't capitalized when they were standing.

It doesn't mean they suck, it means that's how good the competition is. Lest we not forget, it's still fighting and all it takes is the right shot at the right time and it's over. Look how dominating Aldo was for years and he got taken out in 13 seconds vs McGreggor. That doesn't mean Aldo suddenly sucks just because he lost a fight. OMG, some people are just retarded.
