    Faber pulling double duty, what a company man.


    Only problem I have with this event on the whole is they are going to use the PPV buyrate as reinforcement of Ronda being a draw, when I would guess most people are tuning in to see the LHW title eliminator and the BW fight.

    Carmouche looks like Faber, except without the buttchin.

    Interesting to see Faber not exactly be given a "gimme" fight. Menjivar is a great fighter.

    it seems like faber will be fighting twice on the card

    this is fucking awful though

    hendo vs machida is a 3 round due to the shit title fight

    hope ronda loses within 30 seconds and wmma is done

    While I am really looking forward to the Hendo/Machida match, I don't think either one of them has proven to be much of a PPV draw. If Hendo was, Dana wouldn't have let him go to Strikeforce, and Jones said recently that he wasn't interested in a rematch with Machida because that was his worst performing PPV.

    I think Menjivar is looking at her cooter.

    HA! I knew it!

    If PPV numbers are good, Sherdog will proclaim it's because of Hendo and the BW fight. If it fails, it will be because of Rhonda.

    Typical Sherdog!

    Faber was never given gimme fights. His last six fights have been Barao, Bowles, Cruz, Wineland, Mizugaki, and Aldo. He gets a lot of title shots, but he beats top notch fighters to do so.

    I'm surprised. I was half-expecting Rousey in a bikini, with her pinky finger to her lower lip, while Carmouche was sort of stuffed into the bottom corner in fight attire.

    Instead of what? Ronda ovary huggers with proclaim that the ppv only did well because their beloved flavour of the month WMMA fighter and will say Hendo and Machida couldn't draw shit if it tanks hard.

    See how it works both ways?
