I wonder what the prerequisites are to get to write for that site? Not much, apparently.
Sherdog has some horrible writing.. I only use them for looking up guys records

I really like Ricardo's video blog, they ask him why he isn't trash talking Hughes,
he says something like "Why would I down talk a man who has done so much in this sport".

Im not so sure about this, if you look at the importance of other fights on the card this fight done not carry as much weight as other fights do. The title fight is clearly the main event and then you have 2 fights that could be give the winner a shot at the title. IMO those fights are more important. Should the fight get press because Matt is in it, yes, but that does not mean it should become more important than fights that have more on the line.

Legacy trumps eliminator fights every day of the week.

They are both eliminator fights that still have a place on the main card, I just think that as part of being in the Hall of Fame your fights should all be given top 2 billing. When Matt beat Ricardo thats' going to put him on a 3 fight winning streak. if he's not working his way back up toward title contendership by then I'll be shocked.

I see what ur saying and somewhat agree on this as I think Almeida is close to a title shot as well. Well hes pretty close he will have to beat Matt and maybe one more imo to get a shot.
Its to later too worry about it now it is what it is and just enjoy all of the fights...
*Is Matt even wanting another shot at title or is he just lookin for interesting fights at this stage of his career???

For Matt Hughes fans its saddening but I understand why not. To majority of fans Hughes V Almedia is not setting tongues wagging. However I think purists are looking forward to it more. Almedia is like a better Renzo from what I can see.

Matt is a big underdog on this and I have put a bit of money on his win. I think if Matt wins this his next fight then is against a big boy and they'll be the big promoted fight - no doubt of that.

hughes is fighting for the old guard on Saturday. Liddell is gone, Coutore will be killed by most of the LHW, Franklin is building up again but Hughes is really the last and we all look to him.

Matt literally JUST said 2 minutes ago that he doesn't care where people rank this fight amongst the other fights.

He said he is just happy to fight now because it's kept him in shape and now he will have the fall off so he can go hunting.

So here's a question... Most of the places that list the fight card have Matt's fight as the 4th from the top (or second to fight on the main card).

MMAJunkie.com lists the live results, and has Matt fighting 3rd.

http://mmajunkie.com/news/20175/ufc-...ve-results.mma

The question is this: I love Matt's walk-in, and I remember they showed it when Matt was the third fight at UFC 112. Is Matt fighting 3rd tonight, and if not, do you think they would still show his walk-in on the PPV?

They will show his entrance. That's one prediction for tonight that I would say is a sure thing.
