Didn't see a thread for just general MMA stuff so figured I'd make one. Mostly wanted to make this to see if anyone else is gonna watch Rousey vs. Kaufman fight tomorrow like I' am. Been very much looking forward to it as I've become a big fan of Rousey's.

I'll probably check it out, looking for Rousey to get the easy win. Cyborg and her have been taking shots at each other and stuff, so hopefully they make that fight for the end of the year when Cyborg is off suspension.

Miesha Tate wants a rematch also, wouldn't mind seeing Rousey wreck her also.

Heard Cyborg is gonna drop weight so she can fight Rousey which I think is obviously the toughest match up for Rousey and to me the only woman who could probably beat Rousey.

K1 have signed a TV deal with Spike in the US.

Weird considering they are basically dead and have no stars, but I guess UFC will snap up all their decent fighters after they get some exposure.

That's pretty much all I see it as is them just trying to add even more depth to UFC once a few of them look like they'll have a chance to make something of themselves in UFC.

Strikeforce's show last weekend was watched by 530,000 people. Best of 2012 so far, and 5th best rating of all time for the company. Awesome news for them as it proves Rousey is definitely a draw for them.

Also UFC 150 drew a buy rate of 190,000 people. Which is the lowest buy rate since 2005.

:lol: Chael Sonnen's restaurant is offering a "Jon Jones Special". Wasn't sure if it was legit at first then i remembered that Chael Sonnen owns the restaurant and that re-assured me it was real.

So appearntly Brendan Schaub-Lavar Johnson is now taking place at UFC on Fox 5 rather than UFC 154. Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown also added to UFC on Fox 5 which is looking like such an awesome card top to bottom prelims included.
