    When will Luigi get with the times and realize that to be a successful fighter you need to be the strongest in EVERY area of the game?????

    He has always been pudgy and , well, sloppy looking. When will he realize that the increases speed, endurance, etc, , etc that could be gained by hitting some weights and eating a proper diet???? He could probably fight at 155 if he got in good shape.

    I couldn’t agree more! Dana White hates fighters that aren’t prepared to compete on a top level!!If Luigi says he is fighting for his life then shows up overweight it shows he really doesn’t care! Regardless if Farber was overweight as well it is downright ridiculous! Question, do they both lose 10 percent of their purse for not making weight?

    Corey Hill???? What is he still doing in the UFC. I thought after his loss this summer, he would be gone. Has he improved any?? The 2 fights I saw he looked sloppy. Come on guys educate me. Is he better?

    CMT..remember…..Corey’s first sanctioned fight was on TUF. He’s only competing for the 4th time in the Octagon. He has a ton of upside, and is a tough matchup for most LWs because of his build (6’4″) with sick reach.

    The little bit I’ve seen of Corey, he was very untrained, andvery lacking in a lot of areas, but his natural gifts give him mountains of potential. I’m very curious to see how he’s come along tonight.
