i missed last nite but every fight ive seen machida in he has looked very solid. Makes guys look foolish trying to hit him. I expect to see him hold the title for quite a while.

I agree with eric. Machida is always perfectly technically solid and makes everyone else he fights look like a fool. He's so elusive. I see him keeping his belt for a long time. It's hard for anyone to even get close to him, and if they do he's also a black belt in BJJ.

Machida may never lose. I dont think Page has much of a shot since he is really just a slower stronger version of Rashad. In order to beat Machida I think you have to beat him to the punch, and right know nobody can mach his hand speed except maybe Anderson Silva but they will never fight because they train together.

Machida will have to meet someone who can catch him. Close the distance and get in close or put him on the ground. If someone does this they will have a good chance, but if they stay on the outside it will be a long night for them!

Machida looked pretty solid. I do not believe that Rampage has what it takes to beat him. Machida can throw kicks from just about anywhere. And it looks as though his stand up isn't all that shabby. If we get the old rampage, he might just have a chance. But if Rampage of new steps in the ring, it will be lights out.

Have Anderson Silva move up one weight class and try him out, that may be what's next, after the Silva Griffen fight, if he makes it by Forrest I hope for a Silva vs Machida superfight.

yeah those two would make a great fight but I think Silva would come out the winner.

Anderson Silva and Machida are very good friends and training partners, that fight will never happen. When ever they would ask the spider if he was going to go after the 205 belt he always said no because that belt belongs to Machida he just hasnt gotten the chance to win it yet.

Roger that! Rampage is gonna get wore out! To slow, to easy to figure out. Of course if you stand there and let him hit you, it's good night Irene...so far the dragon hasn't waited around to get tagged.

Rochester, MN has fights this weekend, a guy i know is fighting, and big namers like Brock Larson, Clay Guida, and I think matt hughes will be there (not fighting) if anyone has the urge to see it in person!

My buddy has a brother that fights MMA. His name is Justin Fogal. I am wondering if he is at all involved in this event in Rochester.

i dont remember seeing his name on the card. there were some good fights sat night in rochester. tommy speer won. There was a guy from ft dodge iowa that i couldnt believe was still standing after the barrage of fists and knees to the head, but he kept swingin back. these events are very fun in person and you can see some local up and coming talent.

    • Been out on a few solo adventures lately. Finding some slab crappies mostly. Got into a mix of gills and slabs today! Fish have been hit and miss this ice season locally but if your willing to put the work in you can find em. Finding fish in that 20-30 fow area depending on the weather. Crappies range from 12-14" and the gill is 10". Most fish caught on plastic baits, a few on waxies. It's been a blast lately! Hopefully my luck keeps up! Have a look!! 
    • Very good-think for yourself.  Trust-to a degree-your gut.  Hemingway always bragged about his buhlsnick sniffer and most of the press people in my life have had excellent  sniffers. But you HAVE to believe in some media efforts simply because there is no value to them of lying about some things and frankly I doubt that many do with any regularity. As far as you 'why I have no idea" regarding political parties and those "invested" in them it is because they BELIEVE certain causes or philosophy's are what they agree with.  Nothing wrong with that. Communists fervently believe (or did) that their way was the best.  Libertarians the same and of course Republicans and Democrats espouse the basic beliefs of their party. There is nothing wrong with any of the PARTIES.....it is the PEOPLE who end up at the top of them. I have learned that one of the reasons for that is simple:   too many truly good and decent people pf talent and ability cannot bring themselves to run for office. It has become degrading and the reason is simple.....because the public trashes and bashes all politicians as "corrupt" and the politicians who ARE corrupt deter others from seeking office. We have some pretty sleazy people running this country and it is sad. No,   I do not know the answer. It is too late.
    • The great part is he doesn't own a house yet down here so if the plan is in-home daycare, he can look for a house that will suit his needs.   One thing I would do different if I were going to up and move but I had to stay around the metro area, I would move to the far north suburbs instead of the far south suburbs where I am now. I hate having to go through the cities in order to go up north for the weekend camping or fishing.
    • You should make us all some ribs so we can taste it. 
    • I like a lot of the new Shell's flavors that they have now but I got burnt out on regular Shell's back in college because I had 3 roommates that were all from New Ulm and they could buy returnable bottle cases really cheap. How ever many cases could stack in our apartment from floor to ceiling is how many we would go through each week.
    • The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs.   Here are pics for the doors.
    • You might want to try, if you haven't already, the app WAZE on your phone.   real time traffic and suggested alternative routes.  
    • I had a guy do that also on Sat in N.D. Pulled in with a Ford F350 and a big Ice Castle and started his  2000 watt All-Pro generator and set it in front of his pickup about 40 ft and went and got in his house. I went and asked him if he want to plug into my Honda 2000 so I didnt have to listen to its all afternoon.   But when I left we picked up and got everything ready. He never came out and I could see him looking out the window so I just unplugged his cord and picked up my generator and left. Never came out to thank me. But the guy next to me thanked me so he wouldnt have to listen to it.
    • Agree on both Stall & Stewart as huge bonuses....but I'm not going to give Fletch credit...it's all on those 2 players that they resurrected their game with new found youth.  It was a "wing & a prayer" from Fletch's standpoint....he had to do something, threw his darts on the wall and they stuck at Stall and Stewart and fortunately for Fletch it has worked out...and both were cheap signings....
    • Dang right!! Nuttin' better than the Reb and Smurfy show!!!!
