UFC middleweights Carmont and Rockhold decided to take matchmaking matters into their own hands recently by working towards a tilt against one another via Twitter. Carmont fired the first shot, saying he’d heard Rockhold was interested in action with the American Kickboxing Academy staple responding in kind with some added stakes, stating, “If I beat you, GSP can never wear that little camo hat again…” It’s a smart move on Rockhold’s part based on Carmont’s status as a potential title-contender while Carmont has less to gain from beating a guy who suffered an opening round knockout in his only UFC fight to date. That being said, expect Carmont to end up facing a fighter with standing similar to his own in the division (like Ronaldo Souza) and Rockhold to land someone along the lines of Costa Philippou or Michael Bisping.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from Diego Sanchez targeting Nate Diaz to Mike Tyson vs. Royce Gracie to the Chael Sonnen-Wanderlei Silva rivalry moving to TUF Brasil and much more in-between!
