Jonathan Brookins thinking about retirement.
Dana White has started his mandatory preseason TUF hype sessions.... He is saying that there is a guy on this season that everybody is afraid to fight. This following a season that Dana White said was "the craziest in the history of the show" and ended up being boring as ****.
Jorge Masvidal out of fight with Pat Healy at Strikeforce event. Surprise Surprise another fighter pulls out of the card.
Rumor is that Tor Troeng could be the guy Dana is talking about.
BRING BACK CHICUBS!!!
Jonathan Brookins is leaving mixed martial arts and heading off to India and the rest of the world to "learn new things about himself".... Hopefully this guy is okay and doesn't end up like some of the other stories of this nature.
Tim Kennedy calls BS on Strikeforce fighters pulling off of final card with injuries.
He then put "But thats not how I roll.""I guess I should pullout of my last Strikeforce fight due to 'injury' so I can have a for sure ride to the UFC," Kennedy posted.

I have a good friend who met Brookins on a train ride in NYC. Said Brooking was one of the nicest and most thoughtful people he had run across. They've hung out a few times (only athlete I ever heard of making new friends on the B line)-
I think Brookins is just a really deep guy who wants more than just being a fighter. I wish nothing but the best for him wherever he goes and doing whatever he does.
Also can we just see REEM fight Cain?
Looks like Gilbert Melendez will get an immediate UFC title shot when he makes the move.
Conor Heun denied treatment by Zuffa insurance and essentially gets cut in the process.
Fabricio Werdum to get a title shot if he beats Big Nog. But we all know that means little in the UFC and it can be taken away in a heartbeat. We have seen guys "fight for a title shot" and then have to win 2-3 more fights to actually get one.... Its become just a marketing point for the UFC.
Anderson Silva open to fighting Michael Bisping next but not Chris Weidman.... Interesting. I can't say that I like it because Bisping is clearly a much much easier matchup for Silva. It does seem that he is taking the easier fight.
LOL At Dana White. He said that the winner of Antonio Silva vs Alistair Overeem gets the next Heavyweight title shot.... Really? Really Dana? We all know there is no way in HELL that Antonio Silva will get a title shot if he wins that fight. He got absolutely destroyed by Cain Velasquez in his last fight. It wasn't a fluke knockout or anything either as he was pounded into a bloody mess. Yet he wins one fight and not only gets a rematch but for a championship? Please....
Just give Overeem the title shot Dana we all know that is what you want so bad that your bald head hurts.
