Jake Shields submitted Robbie Lawler,Nick Diaz submitted Scott Smith after beating him up for two full rounds,Brett Rogers KO'ed Arlovski in 22 seconds, Joe Riggs beat Phil Baroni by an easy decision, and Mike Whitehead beat Kevin Randleman in a tough decision. I didn't get to see these fights, but it must of been an excellent night of fights!

I watched them and they were pretty good. Nick Diaz put a beating on Smith. I was really suprised how fast Shields submitted Lawler, and the Rogers KO of Arlovski was really suprising. I would really like to see Nick Diaz back in the UFC, his last couple of fights he has looked awesome.

The UFC would be stupid for not picking Nick Diaz up! He has skills, and alot of them! Not to mention he'll fight anyone and make most look foolish at their own game!

The reason he's not in the ufc is he failed too many drug tests. Bit of a pothead I understand.

Nick Diaz has had 10 fights in the UFC. The reason he is not in the UFC is because he has walked out on them 2 times already. He is 6-4 in the UFC and has lost to Diego Sanchez, Karo Parisiyan, Sean Serk, and Joe Riggs. He also failed a drug test when he fought for PRIDE and has a huge attitude problem just like his brother Nate. I think Dana would take him back, but it doesnt seem like Nick wants to fight in the UFC its really a stange situation.

Were those fights on PPV or were they televised on free T.V.? I didn't see any advertisements for the fights? frown

Good question Grebe, I don't know where you could of seen them? Diaz did lose all them fights, by a VERY close decision with a couple of them questionable. He has never been taken out completely that I know of, other than the KJ Noons fight that was a cut stoppage that Nick was P.O.'ed about and Noons wouldn't fight him again. There would be some really interesting matchups in the UFC for Nick now, no matter what weight he would fight at!

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
