Here's our UFC 146 discussion thread ladies and gentleman.......ok there aren't any ladies around here but a guy can dream right? Anyway, pretty excited about the main event and a couple of other fights on this card that we'll get into later.
Wish we coulda' seen the og main event of Dos Santos/"Reem but wat-a-ya-gonna do? We all knew Reem was roidin' but did any of us really care? I mean he has been putting on some pretty good ass whoopin's here of late, and who don't like to see that? Kinda like when Bonds and McGuire were doin it but man it was awesome to watch some of those homer's splash into the Bay!!!
the official card is on the nxt post.

I too would have liked to see the original matchup. All heavy weights sounds good to me. I am tired of seeing the little guys fight anyway...
Really starting to dig the story to the main event...........where Frank snapped 'Big Nog's arm in his last fight and Big 'Nog is JDS' sensei/teacher. JDS' only loss, wayyy back in 2007 mind you but never the less, was by way of submission. Which leads me to believe that if Mir could do wat he did to 'Big Nog, then why couldn't he do it to Big Nog's student? And I tell ya what, w/ Mir being a 4 to 1 underdog in this fight it's got me checking out ways to put some money on it towards Mir! (could bet 100 and win 400 or 400 and win 1600 etc etc.) and I know a person could lose what they bet and yadda yadda, but IDK I just got a gut feeling that Mir may surprise the bookies and alot of fans.
UFC 146 Primetime Dos Santos vs. Mir Episode 1 HD
It wouldn't bother me a bit to see Mir win !
I have always been a fan of Mir, but I don't see him winning this one.....
Prove me wrong, Mir.
IDK, I just think Mir's really come a long way.......he's peaking, I think, and if he could ever beat a hw of JDS's caliber, then now is the time. I give him alot better chance than the bookies are tho.
and here's a promo in honor of the old school UFC promos:
UFC 146 - SATURDAY, SATURDAY, SATURDAY!
(*on a side note: Hunts been replaced due to injury*)
I was watching primetime and JDS said Mir was not a man.
I hope Mir catches him and makes him tap like a bitch....
Who is replacing Hunt ?
Haven't seen that episode yet Gyroscope, but I'm w/ u I would really like to see Mir win just because JDS still doesn't respect him even tho he broke Big Nog's arm?!?!?!?!?
