    That.

    I didn't get to see much of the fight except highlights. From what I heard he dominated Rampage, which was hard to watch considering how likable and entertaining Rampage has been through his storied, illustrious career.

    I don't think Jones will ever be beaten in the LHW division. He's going to take Rashad Evans out and after that there's really nothing. He's already beaten Shogun, convincingly. I'm sure he'd take Machida out. Perhaps, Phil Davis would be a decent match up, but he'd have to work his way up and win more. I'd think Anderson Silva moving up to 205 and taking on Jones would be the ideal match up.

    If there's one thing that's for sure, it's that Silva has trouble against wrestlers.

    Ugh, I hate that "I won't fight him cause I train with him/good friends with him." There was the whole thing with JDS saying he'd vacate the Heavyweight title if he was ever champion and Big Nog wanted a shot to win it. Anderson Silva said he'd never fight Lyoto Machida. It's just like.. c'mon, really?

    Le sigh... don't remind me, Quaz.

    You catch the Henderson/Shogun fight? LEGENDARY if you haven't seen it.

    The Wanderlei Silva vs Cung Le fight was nuts, too. Chuteboxe at its finest.

    Man I can't believe Hendo and Wandy are still around... AND STILL WINNING! They were two of my favorites from back in the early PRIDE days. Hendo especially, although back then Wandy was the king and generally considered the best p4p fighter. Hendo is older than I am! Love to see these old timers still crushing.

    It's crazy to believe that Hendo and Shogun never met at Pride. But yeah, at 41, to be doing what Hendo's doing still is amazing (I'm not big on Randy Couture).

    Have you ever watched Shogun's older brother Ninja? That guy was badass. Way more vicious than his little brother.

    I actually haven't. I've heard good things about him, though. Any particular fights that he sticks out in that you'd recommend me watching?

    I can't remember one specific fight that stands out, it's been a long time since I've seen him. Here's a highlights clip...

    Wow, that was nuts. I was looking at his record ... 12 losses? Oh well, those highlights were still sick.

    Almost all his losses, at least the ones I can remember, were by decision (early on for sure.) He was close to beating several of the big names and lost some decisions people felt he should have won. Anyway he was fun to watch.

    Here's my all time favorite fighter, Igor 'Ice Cold' Vovchanchyn (5'8" and fought mostly as a heavyweight) ...

    Yeah, I felt like the first fight was a fluke. Cain had a torn ACL, but I think he didn't want to pull out a week before the fight because it was their first UFC on FOX.

    But yeah, he outclassed Junior dos Santos to the point where he ran out of gas. I couldn't help but think he was fatigued cause you were waiting for him to finish Junior, but then he continued to keep him in the clinch and go for takedowns.

    I haven't gotten around to watch the fight, but Hendo is a monster. I will forever respect him for not getting KO'd by Anderson and double KO'ing Michael Bisping for America!

    I will always respect Shogun, too. Pride Shogun was stunning.

    I haven't been watching MMA much lately, i used to watch a good amount, and Hendo was always one of my all time favorites. Looked like an amazing fight, close calls on both sides.

    I can't believe Hendo is older than I am and still doing this. Pain from injuries sticks around A LOT longer when you hit your 40s.
