    If Wes Simms is a part of it and wins the thing… the company should fold because they are just breeding evil.

    A suggestion if you don’t mind.

    I think a write up should be done on how many orgs have folded, sold, merged and been created since TUF season 1. I know that’s a huge task but would be a fascinating read and something no other site or magazine has tackled that I know of. So much has changed for this sport in such a short amount of time it seems like little time is spent keeping an eye on the big picture. The total landscape is changing so fast we barely have a second to catch our breath.

    Think about what a short time ago it was when the common thought was that Bodog and WFA were going to take on the UFC assuming PRIDE didn’t get their first. Now Mark Cuban is their biggest threat who wasn’t even on the radar a year ago.

    It’s just crazy the pace this thing is taking.

    Have they released any information yet on exactly what the new surface is? I heard that they were going to make it make like pit fighting, Which imo is a horrible idea, but thats all I’ve heard

    Question. What, exactly, are Butterbean and Goodridge masters of? Being old and bald?
