One match. Rousey is a badass. She wins by armbar every time. They know it's coming and there's nothing they can do about it.

I went to a few in Biloxi & Gulfport at the casinos and they were fun. One old racist coot from Lumberton was standing on a folding table yelling “Kick his @$$ white boy” and then came a match where both fighters were black, so he picked out the lighter of the two and cheered him on. LOL

Crap, Struve out. Probably lack of oxygen from being so tall.

Cat Zingano might have a chance. She’s 8-0 but has been out with a knee injury for over a year. Will probably be next for Rhonda.

Machida/Weidman could be a grinder. Should be a terrific fight, regardless. Pulling for Chris, but Machida will be tough. This could be a great fight.

Clear edge to Chris after that take down. Machida looks a little beat-up. Chris has has clearly won the first two.

I would purely love to see her and Holli “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm go at it-IF they’re both in the same weight class.

Second take down for Chris. Still could go either way though. Machida is cut now! Clear edge to weidman now! Machida looks bedraggled.

Machida was awesome in the flourish at the end, but he was too far behind. There should be a rematch though. Awesome fight in’!

Thanks all! Great card. We will return August 2nd for UFC 176. It was supposed to be Aldo vs. Mendes but they announced the main event fell thru. No reason was given but in all probability an injury occurred. Hopefully they'll put together a fun replacement main event otherwise the card looking kinda lame.

Welcome again to the ping list ishmac.

Usually there is more participation but I think everyone went to the bar tonight, as I almost did. Also I skipped the last event as I was on double secret probation and laying low for a bit. The event before I had taken on a troll and took it a little too far and got in some trouble but the troll is gone, hopefully for good, and we're back in business. I promise to be good.

Donation made!

Many thanks for hosting, Manic. I tried to keep my comments somewhat....sedate. Did my yellin’ at Twin Peaks in Houston. Hopefully this thread won’t get disappeared?!?!?!?

I definitely look forward to the next one. Again, thanks for hosting!

Some big news to report in womens MMA. UFC this week signed Holly Holm and also announced they will sign Gina "bathe her and bring her to me" Carano next week.

I think Rhonda Rousey will destroy them both but some great womens bouts are in the near future. Will be fun.
