___________________________________________

These aren't the Top current contenders outside of Kenny Florian/Din Thomas, but it should be an action packed event.

Quarry/Sell is a rematch of a fight a couple of years ago in which many thought was stopped way too early.

Nate Diaz/Assuncao will be interesting as to where the fight will take place as both are Jiu-Jitsu guys but Diaz likes to brawl.

Leben is a brawler type and so is Martin so that one almost certainly will end up with one of them on queer street.

I'm really interested in Florian/Thomas as both are very well rounded in ground/submissions/and striking. Both are technical style fighters and are durable. Should be a war.

PrettyboyFfloyd, this is your boy Din Thomas that you didn't like, the one that called out Mayweather, remember? I suppose you will be rooting for Florian? :p

Hell yes I remember that little bastard. He can call out whoever he wants while he is fighting for maybe $200K. Lol. He's a nobody man. Isn't Leben that red-haired dude that always loses and has fang teeth? I think I have seen him lose all three times I've watched him. I may watch this, but I don't know. Talk me into it!

Yes, Leben has red hair and lost 3 of his last 4 fights. He's sloppy but can generally take a beating and is strong so he tried to bully people around the ring. Martin is a bullier and a KOer as well and he wants to bang on the feet with Leben so this one should end in KO.

Din and Florian should be a very explosive war. Both are evenly matched and very technical. I'm pulling for Florian because he's been getting disrespect ever since he made it to the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 1 reality show. Yet ever since the show he's pulled through and upset a ton of highly regarded opponants but this one should be his most competetive outside of Sean Sherk. I've backed Kenny from the beginning so I am pulling for him to win this time... though Din is a tough kid.

Well, the show is free on Spike and it's on a Wednesday so if you got nothing better to do, why not tune in?

I might check it out over a nice 12 pack. What time does it come on? I'll go ahead and set my DVR to record it if I don't feel like watching.

Just because the females in your life would rather sleep than deal with you doesn't mean you should encourage that for everyone. I think that remedy applies only to those who must deal with you.

(There you go, you're clearly trying to antagonize me so let's have it.)

I know bro. I was kidding as well. Well you have talked me into watching this little event tonight. I have no homework and nothing better to do. I'm just hoping for some kind of entertainment. Do they run commercials during these things? I ask because that drives me crazy!

Well I like the Quarry/Sell fight. So far I absolutely hate this second fight with Nate Diaz.
That fight was nuts considering what Quarry went through to get back in fighting condition. There were some interesting fights all togetehr for a non Top 10 fight card.

I was watching the Ultimate Fighter thing last night, there was a very entertaining fight between a ginger haired dude and a guy with a tanned skin. I havent subscribed to Setanta to watch these UFC shows, but its free over here i might watch it

Yeah, he tore his ACL or something, has to undergo surgery. Too bad it ended like that, that match was shaping up to be a good one. Both are Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelts/ground specialists but Florian was slightly better. On the feet, Din was a better boxer, more athletic, and more explosive, but Kenny is better at Muay Thai kickboxing and a bit more intelligent of a fighter. It was shaping up to be a nice style match up, neither were lasting too long on the ground and it looked like Kenny was keeping Din at bay with the leg/head kicks, and it was a good strategy for keeping Din from making it a boxing match as was evident when Din turned around and ran to mock Kenny's plan of keeping the distance. Din doing that showed that he was getting frustrated at Kenny keeping away and landing the kicks. Still, Din could have possibly won that but he blew his knee out on the takedown attempt.

Losing to Florian isn't an insult though, the guy is just shy of being ranked in the Top 10 at 155. His record isn't great (7-3) but keep in mind MMA records mean a lot less than other sports and Kenny has only 1 loss to someone in his weight class (Champion Sean Sherk by UD) His other two losses were to Top 170 lbers in Diego Sanchez and Drew Fickett. His wins are over quality guys.
