Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to preview UFC 169. We’ll talk about the rematch between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, try to figure out who Ricardo Lamas is, and wonder if Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem will end in a double KO. Take it to the bank.
There’s an article on ESPN titled, “Bellator ready to deal Ben Askren to UFC.” When I read this, my sports fandom kicked in and I immediately thought that Bellator was going to trade Askren to the UFC. Maybe they’d get some future TUF prospects, cash, a couple of depth fighters, who knows. I just know that I was excited because, as my twitter followers can attest to, I love trades. Unfortunately, this article didn’t mention any trades, but it did give me the idea for this column.
Let’s pretend that the UFC and other organizations could trade fighters. UFC has too many fighters and some bad contracts that I’m sure they’d like to offload and other organizations could use some depth or name fighters that can’t compete at a UFC level anymore.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to review UFC Fight Night 26. We’ll talk about where “Shogun” Rua goes from here, Chael Sonnen vs. Brazil, Alistair Overeem continuing to be overrated, and why Matt Brown is the greatest fighter of all-time.
