    How do you feel about Jones/Gus II if Bones beats DC and Gus beats Texeira? I feel that could be the last time to get that fight done.

    I think many people still want that rematch based on how the first fight went down.

    Gus is even more unreliable than Jones though. I fear Gus' days are numbered and one more injury could be it for him and he's what, 29? Sad.

    Yeah, that's why I'm thinking they need to do Gus/Jones II asap if the opportunity comes. Maybe it's just me but I feel that's a rematch that "should" happen. For the record, I would pick Jones to win in more convincing fashion if they did it again, assuming he hasn't totally fallen off as of late.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the rematch because the last time it was a good fight, very back and forth.

    I think they should just do a 6-man tournament:

    Shogun v. Manuwa
    Glover v. Gus
    Jones v. Cormier 2

    Shogun/Man v. Glover/Gus=fight against Jones/Cormier 2 winner.

    I suggested Anderson Silva/Nate Marquardt II for the Brazil show but we get Vitor Belfort/Nate Marquardt instead. Don't mind it, two ageing and pretty much shot fighters going at it. Good "name" win for Marquardt or a decent win for Vitor to go out on. Winnable fight for both.

    Anderson is claiming retirement if his next fight isn't at UFC 212, against Yoel Romero, for the INTERIM MW championship.

    Guess he'll be retiring then.

    Anderson must be trolling, the guy has one win since 2012, and that was fairly controversial over Derek Brunson. Hector Lombard has lost three in a row but is still a fairly marketable name, that fight would make sense to me. Romero shouldn't fight anyone below Bisping/Mousasi/Whittaker.

    Think I suggested Belfort/Lombard and Silva/Marquardt II for UFC 212, the reverse would be ok as well.

    Pretty cool that Vitor Belfort made his UFC debut at UFC 12 and most likely will have his last UFC fight at UFC 212.

    It's a bit of a bittersweet time in my fandom with so many of the top guys from when I started watching all the events (2006/07) knocking it on the head recently or in the near future. By my count there's only a dozen or so PRIDE alumni still remaining on the UFC roster, with Belfort retiring next month and Gomi, Lombard, Hunt and Lil Nog surely getting cut with another loss and Anderson saying he is done if there's no title on the line (nonsensical considering he signed to fight Gastelum... in a non title fight). Barnett's suspended yet again and surely done. Melendez on a bad run. Shogun, Mousasi, Werdum, Overeem and Lawler are absolute freaks.
