  1. i hope he gets in at leaset 3 more big fights, it sucks that he will never fight anderson not that he would win but it would be nice to see, and i hope he fights frank one more time.

  2. what would be absoultely killer would be the ufc to scrap the irvin fight for anderson silva. then make it a special anderson silva – cung le fight. that's how the ufc will take viewers away from affliction.

  3. that would work derek, but they still would not do it even for that.

  4. i hope he stays in fighting

  5. F**k!

  6. Thats too bad. He's going to turn into a Tito or Carano and not live up to his fighting potential. I know how good of a fighter he is so he had better be a good actor or I'll be pissed.

  7. Cung has been fighting and in the spotlight for a long time. I knew after he won an MMA title he would move one. He might have 3 fights left in him but they won't be happening any time soon.

  8. I'm surprised he is talking about it so casually.

  9. Well whenever a fighter wants to call it quits it usually means they are lacking the hunger and fire that they use to have. I HOPE in his case this is not true and he gets signed to the ufc for a special 1 fight deal to fight a guy like anderson.

  10. Anyone see that wanderlei could fight Thiago Silva? posted on mmanews.com. That would be a great fight but I feel Wand should fight someone with a lil more star power at this point in his career. I may just not want to see this fight b/c I like both these guys a lot. Idont know who I would root for.

  11. I dont think dana wants to have thiago fight wandi, wandi just got back in the win column and if he fights thiago, I can see the fight going either way moving wandi right back out of the championship picture if he loses the fight.

  12. cung wont ever fight in the ufc imo. if there is a feud between thiago and wandi i could definitely see that fight happening. the ufc needs to take a few risks if they want to take the focus off of other orgs. i think wandi is respected win or lose anyway.

  13. When I asked him anything about fighting he deflected it. I cut out a lot of fighting questions. He just wasn’t interested. Hopefully Strikeforce signing Misaki may spark his interest. I plan to follow up.

  14. Thiago and Wand doesnt make since b/c thiago is still a rising star and is very dangerous and Wand of course cant afford to lose if theu want a huge PPV fight with him and chuck in the future.Thiago just dont have the star power to make it worth while for Wand. Now if thiago beats a well known fighter then yeah I can see this fight happening but other than that I dont want to.

  15. dane drebin says:

    i think wand would beat thiago. but who knows the guy is undefeated. it would look nice on wandy's win column to be the guy who ended thiagos unbeaten streak tho.

  16. Thiago v Machida is the obvious next step – both unbeaten and getting close to a title shot…

  17. wouldnt mind seeing that but not sure if it will happen.

  18. Nichole Lesniak says:

    They're talking about whoever wins Griffin/Rampage will get Machida.

  19. chuck is saying he got the next titl shot if he beats evans

  20. I just wish UFC wasn't so afraid of letting their fighters fight in other orgs. They basically want to monopolize MMA and slave all the fighters. Thank god for Tito (even though i think he's an ass), Couture, Tim Sylvia, and others who refuse to be Dana's slave. Cung will fight in Affliction since Strikeforce has a good relationship with them and Strikeforce lets their fighters fight in other orgs. In a sense, Dana is ruining MMA's future. Yes, he di help with sanctioning the fights, but now he's doing exactly what he shouldn't be doing, which is monopolizing MMA. His fighters cannot make any money because they have exclusive contracts. They are all a slave to him.

    As for Cung and Silva, I would love to see that fight! I like both fighters because they are true martial artists unlike some of the fighters they have on UFC that have no business being in the ring (i.e., Matt Hamil, Rashad Evans, etc.). These guys are nothing more than wrestlers who trained in MMA and learn basic striking skills. A true martial artist is someone like Cung Le, BJ Penn, Brandon Vera, Anderson Silva, Georges St. Pierre, etc. Like BJ Penn said, there are way too many atheletes in the UFC, but not enough fighters.

    WAMMA is a great start for the growth of MMA and for MMA fighters to make more money. It will also give fighters a chance to showcase and prove to the world who the true champion is by unifying the belt. Unlike what UFC does where they claim they have the best champion or best fighters. No they don't, they only have the best fighters in the UFC, that's all. The only way to prove you have the best fighters is to join WAMMA and unify the belt. Champions should fight champions. PERIOD. After then you can claim that you are the best.

  21. Kash: you can't compare LEE to TITO. Tito only beat up guys that he had a grudge against(k.shamrok). Look at his other fights…Like against Griffin..haha we all know Griffin won that one. He can't even hang with Chuck like he says he can..all talk. I beat LEE could beat or hang with any of the guys Tito fought anytime anywhere.

    Just kind of upsets the MMA world when you compare a LEE to a TITO. sorry my two baa!!!

  22. Kev: you are right about the ufc….mostly a bunch of wanna be gangstas that popped up and started to exercise a bit so they can brawl in an organization. Respecting the martial arts status is a must to become a true fighter. A true example of wannabe gangsta is the JUNIE vs. DELGADO episode of Ultimate Fighter when JUNIE spits on the BLACK BELT he mocks DELGADO with. totally disrespectful……..and to sum it up of all people MIR was questions and mocking delgado about his black belt before the fight….what an @!#%^….

    I say let Lesner punish Mir now since he knows some floor tactics… LMAO

  23. I agree it seems to me like Mir isnt such a great guy and it is really showing through on the show, not helping his cuase much to win over any fans.
