  10. Sherdog forums: Argument – Chris Dolman was more influential than Royce Gracie in MMA (this is a fun thread to read)

    That IFL editoral in the Herald reads like something a dopey college kid slopped together 20 minutes before the deadline. Really don’t think he’s actually claiming they don’t have a TV deal, I think the Herald needed some filler, and he stumbled onto the IFL’s webpage.

  2. JThue says:

    (I’m testing tags here for the first time – apologies if it doesn’t work)

    Many new fights announced for UFC TUFinale 4

  3. Zach Arnold says:

    JThue – just use normal HTML coding (a href, blockquote, etc.) and it should work fine.

  4. Mr. Roadblock says:

    Yeah, how desparate is that newspaper for content?
    If you gave crayons to inmates at the funny farm you’d get something more coherent.

  5. Preach says:

    Hahaha, that Chris Dolman Thread is some funny shit…

  6. JThue says:

    Thanks Zach 🙂

    Re: KID… Well this isn’t getting confusing at all :S Could it be that he has simply been offered a ton of money from K-1 to take a 3 month pause from his wrestling-training to prepare for- and fight on NYE?!? Or is there any chance his “fight” on NYE could in fact be an amateur wrestling match? I’m intrigued.

  7. Amy Robinson says:

    Wow I’m surprised to see Jackson on the finale after the way Dana reacted on the show. I was also surprised to see the Smith-Sell and Ray-McCarthy fights. I would think it would make more sense to pit the strikers in Ray and Smith and the grapplers in Sell and McCarthy against each other.

  8. Zach Arnold says:

    Nikkan Sports had an article (here it is) that indicated that Kid was “positive” about working on the Dynamite show.

  9. Preach says:

    The more interesting part of the card is not seeing Jackson back, but that Rich Clementi and Din Thomas dropped back down to 155.
