Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it.

But if you do not grant Karo victory, then to hell with you!

The card looks OK. Depending on how much it costs, I may or may not get the PPV.

What happened to the Tito Ortiz fight? I thought he was supposed to fight at UFC 53.

Tito is not going to be working with Zuffa again any time soon.

I guess I'm way out of it. What happened?

Well, for one thing his profile was pulled from the UFC website and he is now under contract with an obscure pro wrestling league.

I remember hearing something about that on Best Damned Sports Show. If I recall correctly, he was contracted out as a ref. Oddly, he didn't talk about the UFC.

Perhaps we can look forward to that movie career Tito babbles about so much. He does have the perfect personality for a bitchy quasi-actor.

So no rematch with Ken or Chuck?

Pity.

Aside from Tanner/Franklin, I'm really looking forward to Serra/Parysian. I really hope that they do not black that match out.

Mahood trains / has trained with some guys in my BJJ class.

We all know they are just feeding him to Griffin but Im interested to see how he does. Also interested in watching Arlovski destroy Eilers, the battle Im sure Tanner/Franklin will be, and actually wouldnt mind seeing the Buentello fight. Buentello was pretty impressive last time I saw him.

I guess Crom is goin to hell. Serra's gonna win.

I don't care too much for the rest, but I sure hope Parisyan wins (I loved his last fight- a masterclass in judo). Tannr is one of my favourite fighters, so I' m hoping he wins too. It's also my pick for fight of the night; Franklin's a good guy and I think it'll go to decision in Tanner's favour.

That referee thing with TNA was a one time "guest referee" thing as far as I know. I don't think he's under contract to them.
