Comments

  1. Nice to see that Gomi's back in action. Coleman vs. Shogun? – gimme a break.

  2. Realwun says:

    I saw the CBS show and the Cotto fight. I liked both.

  3. Elite show was good but for the first time in a while i really enjoyed the boxing.

    Coleman vs. Shogun does not really strike me as a dream match but it would be nice for Shogun to avenge what shouldn't have been a loss.

    Glad to see Gomi back in action, I wish he would sign with UFC so he could fight BJ Penn again.

    Silva vs. Cote? dont get me wrong i like Patrick Cote but this will certanly be a bad night for him, I think this is evidence that the middleweight contenders are way out of Andersons league and that the light heavyweight division seems the best thing for him to expand his legacy.

  4. i agree with everthing you said luke, the only reason i am not pissed about shogun vs coleman is shogun needs a tune up fight after 2 surgeries and a long layoff and he does owe coleman one. and cote vs silva won't be a fight but who else is there at 185 that will be, except maybe a rematch with dan but that won't be for a while if ever.

  5. I think Okami might give Anderson Silva a good fight. I agree with you Roy about the tune-up fight for Shogun, he needs it.

  6. dane drebin says:

    wow i way called a shogun vs coleman rematch seeing as they are btoh coming back from knee injuries it just makes sense

  7. i agree morey at this point okami is the best match up for silva, i see it going into the 2nd round and thats more than most of the other mw will do

Speak Your Mind
