I hope Leban wins but there will be alot of home cooking for Bisping.

Diego Sanchez has torn rib cartlidge and is out of UFC 90 against Thiago Alves. Josh Koschek is now in. Even though I am a fan of Diego, I think this is a better fight.

Anderson Silva has virtually set a date for retirement!

Quote:
by Marcelo Alonso (malonso@sherdog.com)

The talk started in late September.

That’s when Anderson Silva, the UFC middleweight champion regarded by many as the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, said on a Brazilian TV show that he was going to retire in 2009.

Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, explained that his fighter would finish out the six remaining bouts on his UFC contract. Although Soares’ statement seemed to appease some fans, others understood that Silva’s retirement could still come soon even if he fights six more times.

“Everything has its time,” Silva told Sherdog.com in an exclusive video interview, “and I believe my time is already over.”

So what would be Silva’s next move if he does retire? Boxing maybe? Coaching?

“I’m going to be fat, with a big belly by the side of the Octagon, eating popcorn behind the scenes, making my imitations and screaming for the fighters: “Go there! Kick his face! Put him down!”

Silva, who is famous around the Brazilian fight scene for his uncanny impersonations of fighters and trainers, also discussed with Sherdog.com whether compensation has played a role in his decision as well as whether he has been motivated to train for his title defense against Patrick Cote on Oct. 25 at UFC 90.

I'm excited to see Tamdan Mccrory fight at UFC91. I trained at his school here in Binghamton for a while, and he is a good young fighter. I'm also even more excited to see Jon Jones to fight Stephan Bonnar in his return at UFC 94. Jon went to high school at my school's rival and we always wrestled against him. He was a great kid though and one of the only kids on that team I didn't despise.

Anyone else have ties to fighters currently on one of the big stages?

Nog pretty much just restrained him and he didn't get kicked off the show. Dana said he was lucky because the Athletic Commishioner happened not to be there or the Commish probably would have made him go home.

That was a great first fight, Ron!

Wow! Santos with the KO!

So far I am 0-2. That's about right.

I like Leben, another crazy guy, but I thing Bisping will be too much for him. Leben is one dimensional and stubborn. He sticks to a fight path even if it is gonna fail him.
