This. I almost think these guys fake injuries to hold onto that belt for a longer period of time. Phone Post 3.0

This shit has made me hold off on ever buying tickets early again.

Lol why are people getting so mad that Chris is injured? It happens in this sport, the. Fighters out a lot of stress on their bodies to be the best Phone Post 3.0

If I know the UFC, and I think I do, they will now set up Lyoto and Weidman to coach TUF starting in June and they should they'll fight on the NYE card.

Watered-down cards don't work. Here is why. Didn't tickets just go on sale?

Gives machida more time to prepare and it gives weidman fans an excuse if he loses. Phone Post 3.0

Not saying that this is the case with Chris because freak injuries can happen but one of the risks of taking "supplements" (especially if you don't know what you are doing) is the tendency to over train and the resulting extra stress the muscles put on the ligaments.
It really makes you appreciate everything about Silva even more. Phone Post 3.0

Did you not read the part saying its now headlining the 4th of July weekend card? Phone Post 3.0

That event will not get a replacement main event. They'll just bump up Junior vs Stipe Phone Post 3.0
