    I'm really hoping for Papy Abedi to get knocked out. His weak chin was already exposed in his last fight and he looks like he's completely roided to the max. Haven't seen Head fight but judging by his bio he has some knock out power.

    Mixed results so far.

    Eric Wisely lost a UD to Eric Young and Carmont tapped Cedenblad (who almost choked out Carmont in the first round).

    But Simeon Thireson won one for our guys with a submission over Yousef.

    1-2 so far.

    DeBlass dominated for the first round and a half then just gassed. Will likely lose a decision but it was his fight to win.

    1-3 so far. Let's hope our guys can turn it around.

    Uh-oh. Looks like Head came down to 170 from his usual 185 to fight Abedi. Might as well make it 1-4.

    Hope I am wrong but our guys are not looking good so far and fighters going down in weight almost always lose.

    Hallelujah! Head tapped the prancing Negro Papy Abedi.

    Abedi came into the ring doing an African unga-bunga dance and all the Swedes were laughing and cheering for "their" guy. Of course, they booed Head who looks like them after he tapped Abedi.

    2-3 so far but very close to being 4-1 as Cedenblad and DeBlass gave away their fights against inferior fighters.

    Pickett taps Page. Not sure what Page is but I guess we should count it as a caste win for Brad.

    3-3 so far.

    Maquire taps Johnson with an armbar!

    4-3. Our guys showing their dominance after a slow start.

    Since Silva is a white Brazilian (who talked about his Italian heritage prior to his fight with Florian) I cannot count this as a caste fight. Silva should win though. Seiver was big at 155 and lost lots of muscle at 145.

    Siver eeks out the win - still would rather see him at 155 though. He lost nothing but muscle to make 145.

    Glad to see they are showing the Head-Abedi caste fight on FUEL. Great win for our guys.

    Stann KOs Sakara. Stann is a great striker who can hopefully improve his wrasslin with Greg Jackson.

    I hope Sakara retires as he is a journeyman and has lost to the top guys. His heart does not seem in it anymore.

    I'm glad Gustafsson got the win since he and Rory are my favorite two fighters right now, shame these two had to fight each other though.

    Rory McDonald? He is at 170 and will never fight Gustaffson (205).

    Great win for Alex. Maybe Rua or Machida next.

    Gus looked very impressive today. James Head really did well, he was a huge underdog.

    No, I meant that it's a shame that Thiago Silva and Gustafsson had to fight each other. They are both great competitors at LHW that I want to destroy Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. That's why I said "had" and not "will have to."

    Also I think Siver going down to 145 is a good move, their is to much debth at 155.

    It's unbielevable to me that the MMA media refers to Papy as Swedish. "james Head taps out the Swede." For God's sake, moving to Sweden when you're 17 YO does not make you Swedish. I hate this watering down of European nationalities.

    I cannot stand that mess either. NONE of the turd world untermenschen invaders are "European". I don't care if they were born in Europe (to 3rd generation parents), they still are NOT Swedes, Danes, Germans, etc. :yell:

    I wonder if anyone calls Hector Lombard an American.

    Apparently, the UFC is going to have an UK vs. AUS Ultimate fighter and some MMA fans want Lombard as coach for the Aussies! For god's sake, the guy isn't Australian!
