Couture/Crocop would have been a huge payday.
Couture/Gonzaga just doesn't have the same luster.
He'll have no problem dieting down if it becomes necessary. He's always occupied a lower weight tier in his division anyway, but I wouldn't like to see him cap 230.
I thought it was pretty funny how Rogan and Mike tried to talk Sinosic up as some kind of 'gatekeeper' for the UFC; he's 1-6 now, that just means he sucks on the big stage. Even so, the way in which Bisping straight up dominated him was truly impressive.
i hope we can see Cro Cop vs Arlovski now, or maybe Cro Cop vs Vera...or even Cro Cop vs Nogueira...by the way, even though it was boring as fuck, Arlovski owned Werdum, he proved hes not a flash in the pan, i hope they keep making the top HWs fight one another, id rather see a good fight with 2 tops HWs than whats supposed to be a squash match (Bisping vs Sinosic)
I believe Rogan even mentioned the open hand slap when it happened during the fight, kinda funny. I could not believe that Gonzaga won in the fashion he did, I thought he could win the fight if he got it to the ground and it looked like he would have won it from there pretty easily - I thought that stand up was shit, Gonzaga was elbowing the crap out of him - but whatever, the high kick was a surprise to me but it was freaking awesome and made sitting throgh Arlovski's bore fest worth it.Originally Posted by Tech
Hey now, it wasn't Arlovski's bore fest
That was all on the head-slapper himself. Andre has proven time and time again that he's a finish type of fighter, but it's hard to do that when your opponent is constantly giving ground. Chasing down a heavy in BJJ is a sure ticket to disaster; gave me my only loss to date, via a kneebar, and I've sure as heck learned from that.
I feel Bisping was surprised by Sinosic's little jab, especially considering the fact that he was nearly finished in round one. He never really was in any danger there though; just another black mark on Elvis, seeing as how he couldn't do a thing with a hook and someone's back. The way he drop-rolled into guard was smooth and controlled; his g'n'p during the first round was exceptionally brutal as well
