    3 of the 4 TUF finalists this year are white and one is a Negro.

    I expect it will be two whites in the finals as the black won some questionable decisions.

    Andrey Koreshkov won the Bellator 170 tournament tonight.

    Whites have all the belts in Bellator save for 205. And if Atilla Vegh beats the black champ (which he should) we will have all the belts in Bellator.

    The 135 champ is a white Brazilian.

    Koreshkov dominated Good in the standup, that is no easy task.

    Forrest Griffin out of the UFC 155 card against Phil Davis.

    This is good news as Davis would likely have beaten Griffin pretty good. In fact, I'd say almost anyone at 205 will likely beat Griffin now.

    Would rather see Forrest go out losing to a Bader or Gustaffson than a black fighter.

    TUF final will be between two whites as the last black hope was knocked cold by Canadian Mike Ricci (who trains at TriStar with GSP and Rory McDonald).

    The TUF finally will be between Mike Ricci(7-2) and former Army Ranger Colton Smith(3-1). Both white.

    Smith won, but the fight was pretty boring. It caps the most pathetic season of TUF ever if you are judging by the ratings.

    We got a good caste win on TUF last night as Luke Barnatt KO'd Gilbert Smith with a knee.

    Also a good caste matches just announced. Roy Nelson will fight Cheik Kongo - a DWF favorite - at UFC 159.

    Also, some good white v. white matches at UFC 159 as Michale Bisping fights Alan Belcher and Pat Healy fights Jim Miller.

    Chris Weidman is seriously being considered to fight Anderson Silva in July. If it happens, I guarantee Weidman will win.

    Slovakia's Attila Vegh took Christian M'Pumbu's light heavyweight belt last night via UD.

    Now every belt in Bellator is held by a white man:

    Heavyweight - Alexander Volkov
    205 - Attilla Vegh
    185 -Alex Schlemenko
    170 - Ben Askren
    155 - Kichael Chandler
    145 - Pat Curran
    135 - Eduardo Dantas (white Brazilian)
