damn, and he was just turning things around. I won't count him out, but damn jumping from Ramirez to Shogun. You need a sherpa, climbing gear and cold weather clothes to climb that step up.

That should be a good fight.
If Forrest wants to be the champ one day, he needs to start winning some big fights.
He always seems to take the first round to warm up. Maybe they need to give him a beating in the change room before the match, so he comes out ready to fight.

Shogun in a cage... damn. Am I the only one that thinks the Chute Box fighting style benefits GREATLY from fighting in a cage?

SHERK AND FRANCA both test POSITIVE...both for different substances...sherks however, i think is quite a low testing, so we'll see how that turns out in an appeal

forgive the derail and off topic comment, but where exactly in wyoming are you? I'm in Gillette and we have nothing as far as training places goes.

njsac is, supposedly, considering allowing knees to the head of grounded opponents (and where njsac goes, the others will follow). you'll never get stomps, and frankly, as a sport with an inexplicable image problem... mma in the us is better off without them.
