i friggin hope rashad doesn't go all lay and pray on him like he did with rampage.

Rampage was slow an out of shape. If Rua isn't 100% the same thing may happen to him. If he is 100% Rashad's going to sleep..

BJ penn coming into his fight this weekend weighing 165 against hughes....

also, heavyweight is like 205+, so there's lots of weight discrepancies there, and the commission doesn't do anything about it.

Like I said, if they think it's a disadvantage to you, then they will not allow you to fight. So I doubt they believe BJ Penn coming in 5lbs lighter will make much difference.

The Heavyweight differentials is something I do not understand. They could end up with a 220lb fighter against a 275lb fighter. A 55lb difference. Basically a lightweight fighting a light heavyweight.

I think it'll encourage them to fight in the proper weight class

Doubt it. There are plenty of fighter who couldn't fight at that weight because that would be up against much larger (frame wise) opponents.

the mullet is pretty sweet. especially since he's messican and not a white redneck.

I've probably seen more WEC than UFC. they used to run it practically 24/7 on the Vs. channel

there was a pretty good WEC card last week, Faber won his first fight at 135, and looked great at that weight.
