    These numbers are bad there is no way around it.... These programs on Fox are getting 3 times as much marketing and the numbers are already lower than what they were getting on Spike and still dropping.... In meantime Spike has seen their ratings go up +20% since the UFC left for Fox.

    There is no argument for the numbers because all of the UFC programming on Fox/FX/Fuel has been dropping across the board except.... The Prelims on FX. The Prelims on FX have seen significant increase in ratings. So whatever excuse you want to use whether it be the night, the channel change, people not having the channel etc. people have shown to be able to find and watch the prelims on FX. Why not any of other programming?

    I'm about as interested in seeing that as I am in seeing Bobby Lashley vs James Thompson.

    Simpson not getting a gimmie. Interesting fight for Fitch, Simpson has the wrestling to keep this fight on the feet and if he does, I think he has the better striking. A loss for Fitch here and it's guarantee he stays on the prelims for his next few fights.

    Vera/Te Huna sounds about right, winnable fight for either, Te Huna looked really good in his last fight vs Rosa, while Vera not so much vs Silva. Is not going to be an easy fight for the the future LHW and HW champion of the world...

    Brandon Vera beat Elliott Marshall in the Fall. Give credit, where credit deserves.

    I don't know that Simpson can keep that standing. And he tends to gas. I could envision him winning RD 1 and then losing the next 2.

    You're right, I completely forgot about that fight (for some reason I thought Silva was his last opponent). I guess that's a solid win for the Truth...

    Yeah, cardio will be key for Aaron, we know Fitch can keep up a good pace for 5 rounds. The cut should play a huge factor in the fight.

    I was joking, really. Brandon Vera sucked in that fight too.

    TUF: Austrailia vs U.K. scheduled for September. Brad Pickett is rumored to be the coach for the UK.

    There is a huge difference in performance enhancing drugs in mixed martial arts than in other sports. This isn't baseball where records are being broken.... Bones are being broken. The object of the sport is to inflict physical damage on your opponent.

    Do you really want to see what will happen to mixed martial arts if somebody gets seriously hurt or killed in the octagon and his opponent tests positive for steroids?
    PEDs would also help fighters heal better and enter the cage in less depreciated states, perhaps preventing an ugly injury. I'm on board with PEDs. Allow them so they playing field is even. Because we know guys are doing it now, it's just which ones risk it and which ones get caught.

    Also, a death in the sport is inevitable. It won't be on account of PEDs. It will probably be based on a fluke neck injury or something missed during a prefight injury.

    That's a good fight, Elliott adds depth to a division that needs it.
