    Ok well the last one is buried and I dont feel like finding it.

    Here is the cover.





    Also any Sirius Satelite Radio subscribers tonight on the Scotty Ferrall show Chuck Liddell and Kimbo Slice will be guests.

    Anybody been watching the new season of the UFC reality show?

    Corey Hill looks beastly. He's my early pick to win.

      I watch, Hill is defintely a physical specimen. A 6'4 lightweight fighter in unheard of. I just wonder if he will stay at LW or move up to WW once the shows over.

      I am going to stick with my original picks to win, either Nathan Diaz or Joe Lauzon. Hill is defintely one of the favorites though no doubt, the only reason he wasnt one of my orginal picks to win is because I had no clue who he was.

        He's very raw right now but he seems to be getting a lot better day-by-day. Plus, I KNOW there isn't a guy out there that's working like he is. He has the physical tools, he has the heart, he has the ability to learn and adapt. The only thing that is holding him back in terms of this competetion is that he's not as experienced as these other guys.

            Ya, that was cool. Who wouldn't? The guy is a freak. 6' 4", pure muscle. Great quickness, explosion, power. Plus, he soaks up new info very well and he works like no other.

              Haha, I have to say it after seeing the latest ep over here, but how much of a douche is Gabe? Seriously to have a huge opportunity like that, come in overweight, stay overweight eating cake and **** and then fail to fight, oh man!

                I think he knew Corey was going to select him and he was scared to fight him so he didnt worry about losing weight so that he could use that as an excuse not to fight.

                  so who can beat Fedor, realistically
                  my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
                  <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
                  <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                  <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                      Hey pick in the mma sim you hoe.


                      I am not sure there is anyone who has a chance against Fedor. I think possibly someone like Josh Barnett could give Fedor the most trouble if he could succeed in taking him down to the ground. Ricardo Arona may have gave Fedor his toughest test so I think someone who can take Fedor down and work submissions on him may be the only way.

                      Guys I think Stand a Chance Against Fedor:

                      Randy Couture: I think Couture would stand a chance if he took Fedor down and grinded out a lay and pray

                      Big Nog: Even though Fedor has beaten him Nog still has the chance to win if they faught again

                      Gonzaga: This is a bandwagon pick but I think Gonzaga is big enough to pin Fedor down and he has sick BJJ so he perhaps could submit fedor. Even though I believe Fedor would risk having his arm ripped off before he would ever tap.

                      Josh Barnett: The best chance of anyone to beat Fedor has to be Barnett. He has a well rounded game. If he could use his size on Fedor and pin him down and keep him there he could possibly beat Fedor.


                      With all of this said I do not believe anyone will beat Fedor anytime soon.

                          He was in the Russian Military but I dont think that is where he learned his Martial Arts. When he was young he started with Sambo which is a submission fighting style that deals with a variety of leg locks. Right now he trains with Red Devil fighting team in Russia

                            I don't think anyone has a realistic shot at Fedor, in the future Chieck Kongo I think could give Fedor a run for his money assuming he sorts out his takedown defence, I LOVE his standup game.

                              Corey Hill was pretty unimpresive in his win last night on TUF. I can't see him winning the competition but obviously there is some definate potential for him to be a great fighter. Joe Lauzon looked AMAZING in his fight, probably the most impressive of anyone yet. He's become my new favourite to win the show.
