For those regarded as warriors, when engaged in combat the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God, or Buddha himself. This truth lies at the heart of the art of combat.

I could see why a hardcore Sakuraba fan would root against Wandi :lol:

Chael is a fucking turd though. Fuck him, I hope he gets KOed stiff by the Axe Murderer. Fedor has to win for my sanity. Nobody wants to see a grown man cry. I don't wanna put that on my family. :lol:

Pretty excited for these fights. I'm surprised there isn't more buzz on linker about this.

Fedor should be able to sub Mitrione as long as his game plan is smart. I wouldn't stand and bang with Mitrione. Might end up sleeping.

Chael will not stand with Wandy. He will take him down and grind out a win. Hopefully it isn't boring.

Fedor
Chael
Lima
Chandler
Pico

Should all win- this is a great card! Chandler and Lima are the fights to watch, I think Fedor vs Mittrione will look a lot less terrible than Chael vs Wanderlei. That fight will look like Vitor vs Marquart, or Ken vs Royce. It will be bad lmao. Anyways it should be fun to see if Aaron Pico is as good as Bob Cook and DC are saying. He isn't getting an easy fight, especially for a prospect.

I guess we'll see if Aaron is ready to step up to the plate or if he is biting off more than he can chew. The kid has been competing in combat sports since he was a little boy. He has boxed, done pankration, nearly qualified to wrestle for the 2016 Olympics.

Aaron didn't want to compete in college, because he felt like he had an unfair advantage. And was beating all-americans when it came to the qualification rounds. I hope he can be the next best thing, he seems to have all the tools to do so. For Bob Cook to say he is the best fighter he has ever trained with or has the most promise is saying something when he has trained: Luke, Cain, DC, Thomson, Koscheck and Fitch.

Lol, Ryan Bader vs Phil Davis for the light heavyweight title is on the UNDERCARD :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Coker knows it will be a snooze fest and wants it nowhere near the main card. Two fighters who got kicked out of the UFC for being boring. Fucking lay n pray fighters

It's the main event in the free card for Spike. Coker is treating it as two different cards, even though both take place at MSG. That's going to be a great fight!
