    Bieber vs. Cruise - who will win?

    Will Cruise contract delete itself after he accepted it?
    [​IMG]

    Three or five rounds?

    Will Bieber have a walkout song of his own?
    And will he make weight?

    Scientology is famous for its Camp, will Cruise profit from that?

    * Does Ferg and Cejudo play up their weirdness for the camera, or are they truly two thoroughly peculiar Mexicans?

    * Is Cejudo's triumphs over DJ, TJ, and M&M the best victory-trio in MMA history? Is it truly the trifecta of awesome?

    * Antman, Jason from the Bronx, I need your knowledge on a subject that I know you're both grandmasters in... women! Why is the "kiai" so common in female MMA when its fairly rare in men's MMA?

    * What is the rationale behind the UFC starting to do PPV's in the UK? I mean, the events start at 3 in the morning! Is this really a money-making avenue for them?

    Why do elite veterans like Cowboy, RDA, Pettis among others, have so much trouble on the feet against El Cucuy? is it the unconventional style or is it the pace breaking their flow?

    They'll like this one. Not that they won't like the others, but this is a good topic that can bring some debate and good analysis. We just have to hope Burgos doesn't give us an "I don't know".

    Do you prefer the days of old when fighters were specialists and not so well rounded as they are now?

    Look at Tatiana Suarez. She's so good at wrestling, every one of her other skillsets looks paltry in comparison.

    So... after Saturday. Who do you want to see face Khabib next, Ferguson or the Mcgregor rematch... Would the Khabib camp turn down the Mcgregor money and maybe risk losing it if he gets another fight and gets smoked to possibly have Ferguson fight cancelled for the 5th time.
