    UFC 153 - the curse continues....

    Post  Ginginho on Wed Sep 12, 2012 1:40 am

    With both the headlining fights have been cancelled due to injury, can the UFC save this card?

    Who is available to headline a PPV on short notice?

    Machida v Sonnen for #1 contendership could be arranged and would be interesting. Glover v some other LHW is also probably going to happen. Edgar could still also make his FW debut, albeit against a comparatively low-ranked fighter.


    Also... does this now mean Koch gets his title shot back?

    Apparently Machida has said on twitter something interesting is happening at 153....So I assume Machida will probably headline against maybe Glover or maybe Glover & Machida get opponents.

    God damn these injuries !.

    Glover is Blackhouse now isnt he? I think him and Machida are friends... wether that would stop them fighting or not I dont know...

    Id take Machida vs Sonnen and Glover vs T.Silva/Forrest

    According to junkie Fabio Maldonado wants to fight Glover not sure what make of that fight TBH and Frankie has said he is happy to stay on the card a fight with Mendes would be a great fight to make but on short notice and Chad's legal woes there's probably no chance this happens.

    Just thinking about what Machida said....Shogun v Machida III ?

    Yeah Shogun vs Machida 3 would be awsome, Id actually back Machida to win this time, I think Shogun is done. Either his body has let him down or he has fallen out of love with the sport and isnt training as hard.

    Mendes would work for Edgar, Id like to see Lamas get the figth most though.

    I love Maldonado, him vs The Snake was my most looked forward to fight but him vs Glover would be just as exciting. Fair play to him for fighting the guy Shogun ducked!!

    I dont think this card will be ruined because we dont get to see 250lbs Rampage plog after people punching thin air, Aldo is a real shame though but its only 1 fighter on a stong card.

    WHERE ARE THE NOGUEIRA BROTHERS WHEN YOU NEED THEM!!!

    I WANT LIL NOG VS SONNEN!! Twisted Evil

    Machida tweeted a pic with Wanderlei, Shogun and Big Nog... Reckon you could be right about Shogun vs Machida.

    Id love to see Wand vs Big Nog at Hw! What a scrap that would be!

    Agree on Shogun as much as I love him has a fighter I don't think he beats Machida this time round his knees are fucked which obviously has effected his speed and cardio.

    Lamas vs Edgar would be great IIRC hasn't Lamas already been offered to fight Edgar If so and Lamas is fit that would be a great Co-Main event.

    Yeah the card still looks good Silva vs Fitch and Story vs Maia are 2 very intriguing fights on the main card.

    Maldonado vs Glover would be a fun fight and I read Faber is willing to step up to fight Edgar.

    It looks like Big Nog v Dave Herman is on the cards but won't be the main event......

    I like the Silva - Bonner match up myself.

    I;m glad Bonner has got the big fight he's been asking for before he finishes his career.

    Nog v Herman is not that bad of a fight thinking about It and It's certainly winnable for either man. As for Glover & Maldonadao that fight should be competitive enough but I can only see a win for Glover and Anderson v Bonnar is a complete waste of time It makes Belfort vs Jones look like a 50/50 fight IMO.

    Still its a card with Anderson and Big nog on it now! Good going UFC.

    Wand and Sonnen had agreed to fight at 195lbs too... woner why that didnt go ahead...

    And what is Machida's supprise?!! Guess none of these guys will fight because there is already about 13 fights on the card.

    Still good save for the card.

    I could see Machidas surprise being a move to 185.

    So no Faber v Edgar then? That was the most interesting of all the speculated matchups.

    Glover-Maldonado is probably a better fight than Glover-Jackson. Although I was looking forward to seeing Ramplod getting KTFO.

    Big nog easily beats pee wee.

    Anderson easily peasily lemonly squeezily beats Bonnar.

    I think Machida's 'surprise' Ben is him and Shogun coaching the next TUF in Brazil.
