    Who knows? Who knows, who knows, who knows?

  3. Eminem says:

    these guys aint no bullies -

  4. jared says:

    Japs are dominating tonight for sure

    • Larreen says:

      wow racist much?

      • johnson says:

        not racist – true… Feel bad for yamamoto dang!

        • Larreen says:

          um i pretty sure “japs” IS a racist term

        • krafty11 says:

          it is.. but some people will never learn.

        • andy says:

          japs is notttt racist….imagine if everytime you wanted to talk about a japanese person you didnt know you had to keep spelling out japanese because some over sensitive american retards feel the need to whine over any amount of racism because we have been brainwashed growing up to defend everyone…however…america is the most racist country in the world…no country is better, theres no better place to live, theres no better group of people on the planet…if you really want to defend someone who needs it…take a look at what american government is doing to our bill of rights, or what is atleast left of it, instead of whining cause someone said *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***….sorry…my ***** made keyboard geeked out

        • diek says:

          Well Andy very impressive use of more racist shit, to amplify the point of your racist ignorance. I clearly see why saying `Japanese` would be complicated for someone so simple. You probably think the bible was written in English too.

        • krafty11 says:

          diek, i think andy has issues. hope he gets the help he sorely needs..

  5. but why says:

    Gomi got this

  6. AK says:

    Hope Kid Y gets another fight and I think Dana will give him one more chance…let’s see if Gomi can get the first KO of the night

  7. AK says:

    My bad forgot somebody got KOed earlier..looks like it will be between that dude and most likely Rampage for KO of the night

  8. but why says:

    Gomi in the House!!!

    Will there be fight breakdowns for these, or just results?

  9. krafty11 says:

    anyone think Mizugaki got robbed in his fight? I know it wasnt a totally exciting fight, but thought he won that fight easily. never leave it to the judges, i guess. lolz. If the judges can find a way to screw up a decision, they will…

  10. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    @Krafty11

    I feel ya on that one, Mizugaki won that one in my eyes. He had Octagon Control, more takedowns and more strikes.

  11. Blskr says:

    unreal at Pettis, that was a major fluke – Joe didnt event get a chance to get started, thats unfortunateI was really looking for Lauzon to start rising through the ranks!
    Fucked up!

  12. tony says:

    I’m hatein not gettin these fights

  13. CanILive says:

    SHOWTIME BABY!!!
    Props to Lauzon for keeping it standing LIKE HE SAID
    ……Condit could take some notes from J-lo

  14. but why says:

    It would fun to watch a standup fight with Pettis and Frankie.

  15. CanILive says:

    Hioki doin work!!!

  16. Seriously guys – you cannot share pirated links to illegal streams. No warnings, instant bans – you can get us taken off line with that behavior – thanks!

  17. E says:

    where did my posts go?

  18. E says:

    TIM BOETSCH VERY NICE COMEBACK

  19. diek says:

    Outstanding comeback by Boetsch, unbelievable.

  20. ZeroXcuses says:

    Tim Boetsch JUST DID WORK

  21. Beaner says:

    Yeah there’s no better place to live…. let’s drop your retarded ass off in one of the countries in Africa that embraces cannibalism and let’s see what you think then. And I am American and don’t find the word Japs racist. To me honestly I could careless of what part of the world your from or race. In the end only the smart will survive when the world turns to shit. Stupidity isn’t race related its your blatant ignorance towards the obvious.

  22. AK says:

    I wonder if they will set up Pettis vs Henderson 2 if Bendo loses tonight. Pettis probably will have to take 1 more fight..maybe the winner of Nate Diaz vs Jim Miller..or loser because that fight is I think the lightweight title elimiinator…this kind of puts Pettis in a little bit of a limbo now since all other top contenders are coming off of a loss..at least the ones I can think of..

  23. E says:

    lmao @ joe rogan cryin bout 2 fence grabs.

  24. Hi'imanu says:

    Man I hope the power doesn’t go out on Kauai, thunder is rumbling over here. Not looking forward to seeing how underpaid Ben Henderson is for this fight regardless though.

  25. stephen Riddle says:

    Go jake

  26. TROLL GUY says:

    GO RYAN “MASTER” BADER

  27. Dave says:

    Wish I could watch this fat bastard fight dirty

  28. Pijan says:

    Damnit, all my picks so far have been wrong. Missed the Shields fight, was it as lay n pray as it looks, or did he actually work for it?

    • E says:

      akiyama was doin g but jake was being a blanket most of the time. 3rd round he had akiyama in trouble on the ground. i thought akiyama had rounds 1 and 2.

  29. Pijan says:

    And I’m not watching it, but I’m keeping up with it and it sounds to me like the Japanese fighters aren’t doing to well tonight.

  30. jared says:

    sucks for rampage – damn

  31. CanILive says:

    Goldberg’s mic blends in with his jacket lol

  32. t says:

    omg lots of up sets tonight i love it

  33. Pijan says:

    Another pick of mine wrong. I expected Bader to make it a ground fight, was hoping he would have the decency to put on a good show for the fans. I knew there was a reason I didn’t like him. EDGER HAS TO WIN or I’ll finish 0-7 on the main card.

    • Pijan says:

      I think Bader has to probably be my least favorite fighter of all time. I was so happy when he got choked out twice in a row.

  34. AK says:

    Damn…I knew there was a reason why I didn’t bother making picks on this card..Boetsch and Bader upsets are rather big ones..especially the Bader one..Rampage only loses to the absolute best..BIG WIN for Bader.

  35. Zack says:

    Ryan bader is a bitch.

  36. AK says:

    Honestly I think Jackson slept on Bader like he did Grifffin

  37. Pijan says:

    I’d rather watch Diaz-Condit over and over again than watch another wrestler fight. They’re just so damn boring.

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      I thought it was Jon Fitch dressed up in a Ryan Bader costume. When is MMA going to outlaw “FITCHING”

      Rampage needs to retire

      Bendo destroyed Edgar. I would say bendo added about 5 more concussions to Edgars already countless concussions. Edgar is goimng to be brain damaged for life if he doesn’t stop fighting now and its already prob too late. Tim efor Edgar to drop to 145. He takes way too much punishment

  38. AK says:

    ^probably his biggest fight purse 2..Bader might be someone for Hendo to fight..its what they’re both looking for..I’m sure Bader would love this chance to break into top 5 perhaps (at #5) and this is somebody coming off of a big win and somebody Dan should be confident against…BATTLE OF THE OVERHAND RIGHTS.

  39. jboy says:

    terrible decision…frankie won that

  40. Jeff says:

    Props to Bendo

    I thought Fe’s speed would give him an edge, it didn’t

    …I was wrong.

    (now hopefully BJ comes back and gets that belt!!!!!)

    p.s. Frankie to 145 vs Hioki for #1 Contender? Sounds good to me.

  41. AK says:

    Really damn so does it look close enough for Edgar to get immediate rematch?

  42. Smoooooooooooooooooth says:

    Thats it baby!!! & anybody that thinks Frankie won the fight is a fckn retard to say the least!! Just look at their faces and tell me who won… WAR Bendo!!!!

  43. Zack says:

    Bendo vs Pettis 2?

  44. AK says:

    Nm wonder if frankie will go to FW or maybe even BW

  45. E says:

    GOTDAM BIG UPS AND MAJOR CONGRATS TO BEN SMOOTH HENDERSON! YOU DESERVED IT!

    FRANKIE YOU A BEAST BUT CMON MAN YOU GOT YOUR ASS BEAT TONIGHT, HOW YOU SAY YOU THOUGHT YOU DID ENOUGH TO GET THE W? FACE IT.

    • classified says:

      Where did you see him get his ass beat? Frankie had way more take downs and landed way more strikes. He got hit by an up kick and a knee that’s the only reason his face looked so bad.

  46. slacker says:

    Wow. I had it rds. 1, 3 & 5 Edgar. Since when do judges score based on genetics. Main reason his eye was so bad was from the upkick and a knee.

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      Damn Edgar took one hell of a beating as usual. How anyone actually thinks Edgar won thta fight i will never understand. Bendo had Edgar pinned upside down and was dropping elbows at end of 2 rounds. Edgar was saved by bell at least twice. Edgar look like he ran out road an d tried to stop a bus with his face. Frankie you can’t steal every decsion.

  47. SmoothAssNigga says:

    Thats my nigga, close tho

  48. slacker says:

    Edgar’s biggest mistake was walking into that upkick. That took a piece out of him for the rest of the fight. He was looking great until that point. I thought he was going to steal that round until Henderson did that.
