Yeah there is a thread about this floating around somewhere.
Ahhh sherdog forums are not for faint of heart.


I just stayed up until 4-something-a.m. reading the play by play's.

The final four of the Open Weight Grand Prix is gonna be great.

This fight airs in the U.S. on Sunday night, so I'm not gonna ruin this with spoilers.

England coming up soon, bleh I'm tired.
