Good stuff going on right now, psyched about the next season of TUF with Mayhem and Bisping looking forward to them fighting. Also GSP vs Nick Diaz in Oct I see being one of GSP's toughest challenges to date.

what did you guys think about Tito's fight? I think he looked good, but i guess the better question is...is Bader who we thought he was?

I think Bader is a good fighter, he is from my hometown so I was able to follow his MMA career pre TUF so I knew he was susceptible to be dropped by a good punch. It was crazy because no one had really tested his jaw until this point. I think Tito spent a lot of time this camp focusing more on his hands and it showed, his boxing skills looked significantly better. I guess it just depends on where people were placing Bader in that division, I never had him in the top tier of fighters so his recent losses won't change my opinion of him.

it looked to me like Okami completely quit in that fight...thoughts? I know it's easy to say that, but it looked pretty obvious to me

I believe he his will broken in the first round, his wrestling wasn't successful and he took some hard shots to end round 1. Going into round 2 he probably knew Silva had already figured him out and it was only a matter of time before the fight ended. Great night of fights, looking forward to them going back to Brazil.

Rashaad is probably the only guy who has a chance, but I can see him having the same trouble he had with Machida with Jones. The reach and unorthodox fighting style that evolves every fight is difficult to prepare for.

Dana White made the statement that Frankie Edgar moved up to #2 pound for pound fighter in the world. Honestly I'd say I would agree, he's fighting above his natural weight class and he's the champion. I'd love to see him and Jose' Aldo face off in the future, but I believe there's a possibility that Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez might be next in line.

What did everyone think about Chael Sonnen calling out Silva, claiming if he lost he'd leave the UFC?

I think it's awesome...I love Chael Sonnen and I think people WANT to see this fight happen. Who knows if it will happen...Dana says he makes fights people want to see but NOBODY wants to see Condit vs GSP but EVERYBODY wanted to watch Diaz fight him

I'm all for building up a fight, but honestly I believe Chael crossed a line when he talked about Silva's wife, some things need to remain sacred.
