With UFC having this weekend off, WSOF has no events, I guess the best we can hope for is Bellator 141.
.
The main event? Brandon Girtz vs Melvin Guillard facepalm

I actually kinda thought that would be the selling point. She loses first round in first fight, lasts a few rounds in the second fight, has she improved enough to now take Rousey all the way...

Again, just my two cents, that's kinda like trying to sell a Globetrotters game by saying the Washington Generals were close in their previous two losses, and only lost by 30 in the last game as opposed to 40 in their previous game before that.titter
.
IF the matches were closer then I could see a third fight being relevant...but really I don't think there was anything in the fights that one could point to, to say Tate has a chance. Going longer into a fight? Yeah, maybe. She got to the 3rd round.
.
I don't know if that is as much a selling point as the unknown. Holm hasn't faced her yet, so we don't know what's going to happen (although we know what is going to happen.tongue), and I think that is easier to sell than someone she has dominated twice already.
.
That being said....
any Rousey fight will sell though.

...I completely agree.wink

So I guess I'm the only person who actually would rather watch Tate fight rousey than watch holm get stomped? smirk

lol. Probably. wink I think for most of us we have seen Rousey stomp Tate twice already. Time for her to stomp someone new. titter
.
Granted, I think between the two, Tate would be more of a "challenge" to Rousey....but that's like having to choose between which of the two turds smell less stinky. lol

I wish they did the Fight Club flashback thing so we could SEE Eliott doing some things as Mr. Robot.
.
I am hoping in the finale they get back to more hacking, but I think it will take a few episodes for this whole psychotic mind break to play out. The good part about it is that it is finally out in the open. The writers can't play with the mental illness for too many more episodes, so HOPEFULLY it will go back to the hacking aspect that most of us love.

Wow. Okay the Pick 'Em has been totaled...and it was a tough one. funk I don't know if it's because we didn't know the fighters that well, the fights were that close or things didn't go as expected but....wow.dizzytitter

MAIN CARD
Max Holloway (i) vs Charles Oliveira (i)(Holloway, KO, Rd1)
Neil Magny (i) vs Erick Silva (i)(Magny, Decision)
Patrick Cote (i) vs Josh Burkman (i)(Cote, KO, Rd3)
Chad Laprise (i) vs Francisco Trinaldo (i)(Trinaldo, KO, Rd1)
Olivier Aubin-Mercier (i) vs Tony Sims (i)(Aubin-Mercier, Decision)

Marcos Rogerio de Lima (i) vs Nikita Krylov (i)(Krylov, Sub, Rd1)
Chris Kelades (i) vs Chris Beal (i)(Kelades, Decision)

.
Breakdown of the points scored are as follows:
Name 0,0,0,0.....0,0,0,0
.
First zero is how many points "Name" scored on the first fight on our list, which in this case was Holloway vs Oliveira. Second zero is how many points "Name" scored on the second fight on our list which in this case was Stout vs Magny. Etcetera. The dots in between are just trying to separate the main card fight from the prelims and make the scores look easier to read.
.
I am listing in the order that the members posted on this thread. Ranking order I will put in the OP as well as update the cumulative points for those who have played in more than one Pick 'Em.

Its sad there is no K1 MMA to see anymore like that very much sometimes unkonw fighter, follow sometimes UFC not to compare with K1 in my opinion.

I agree! Those other MMA companies like Elite, Strikeforce, K1, Pride had solid, if not cult like, followings which I think is why UFC tried to incorporate most of their talent.
.
That being said, I know fans of those companies will ALWAYS love them first and foremost. :D It's like ECW in the world of wrestling entertainment. It folded, but it will always have it's strong supporters!
.
Also let this be the in thread reminder for the Holloway vs Oliveira Pick 'Em. It's tomorrow, August 23rd, I know it's odd to be on a Sunday, especially when they are only up north in Canada, but meh.
.
Anyone can join in, and I hope that they do! It's just for fun, and pretty much no one has any solid idea of how to pick, with the exception of maybe titovicanjoey3674 who has done this once or twice before. ;)
.
Just click on the link, 5 points for choosing the winner, how they win (sub/ko/decision), and what round, 3 points for choosing two of the areas correctly and 1 point for choosing one of the areas correctly. (Obviously if you choose "decision" that takes care of the round AND the how, so you get 3 points for that tongue)

No one wants to see another fight between them currently.

Apparently Dana White agrees with you....and everyone else. wink
Dana White on why Holm and not Tate
.
If anything put Tate against Holm and have RR sit for a while.

You can't have your current biggest draw in the women's market, maybe even the organization, sit out longer than need be. You need to whore her out. titter lol.
.
Its about who the UFC wants to market. Youre telling me The UFC cant sell a Tate/Rousey fight because they fought 2 before? Hard to believe.

I would agree IF the previous fights were competitive...but they weren't even close and Tate hasn't improved that much in this short of time since their last fight. You might be the only one who wants to see them fight again....and that includes Tate! lol tonguetitter
.
Its blatant ducking.

Ducking Nunes?!? Not likely. She lost to Zingano whom Rousey destroyed. If Rousey is "ducking" anyone it's Cyborg. I think it's a step up for Nunes to be battling Tate. Really she should be facing Zingano again.
.
As for the rankings, I agree to a certain extent that the number one ranking is there for a reason, but after it's been proven that the champ can be the number one easily, the UFC has shown no qualms in moving down the list to the next fighter.
.
They did that in the heavyweight division, with Werdum getting his title shot, and although the middleweight champ didn't beat the number 1 and 2 contenders, they did it in the middleweight division too. It's mostly about who the fans want to see and would make Dana the most money.lol

Rousey to fight Holly Holm next - interesting decision, Holm is talented, but she hasn't demonstrated anything that would indicate she could dethrone Rousey. I wonder if it's a tune up fight before they announce Cyborg/Rousey for say UFC 200...

Not that I care, but what happened to Tate? Is she injured?
