Munoz made weight on his second attempt. Wasn't easy by the looks of him.

Mark Munoz looks silly as **** with that head of hair, hopefully he shaved it and made weight.

I think all brazilians are ****** in this card... my last hope is Tibau, mainly because Ferguson isn't very smart

EDIT: @Kpro, Roan fought Rodrigo Ruas (Marco Ruas' nephew) a billion years ago at AFC 1 at 185.

@Vazio I think Tibau and Lima have really good chances but do you consider the Lima bean Brothers Brazilians?

@nomad sure they are, both went to the US about 13, 14 years ago, but were born in a city a couple hours from where I live. Their whole family is from here. Both were also first trained by Junior Assunção and speak portuguese full of regional brazilian slangs, just like everyone else.

I'm a fan of Douglas, still not convinced about Dhiego, though... and Means is a tough dude.

@Tacos, when men are feminine it's obvious they are gay, when women are masculine it's obvious they are gay but when you post it's obvious that you are ********.

Thanks for the answer @vazio.  So Carneiro has only fought at 185 once in 28 fights (The other 27 he was at a lower weight) and he's taking on a guy in Munoz who couldn't event cut to 185 for weigh-ins.  I think there's going to be a fairly noticeable size advantage come fight time.

Btw, I took Pennington too as I see was done above.  Unless I'm remembering the movies wrong, Rocky fights a better boxer but still wins.  I'd like to see it play out the same way except with much more attractive fighters than we saw in the movie.

Anyone buying this card? Lots of casual fans probably will because of Rousey, I predict 250k buys.

The fact this card is right before an amazing 4 PPV stretch is ********. If this passes 300K buys, I'll be surprised. Maybe now the UFC Can realize that when Ronda isn't on a stacked card, she doesn't pull great numbers. Becuase they seem to think she had a big part to do with 168 and 175 sales.. Y'know, bigger than Weidman/Silva II, Weidman/Machida.

Man I am pretty excited for this. We should make a game of predicting the PPV buys. I will go with 275k buys. Ronda is one of the better draws in the UFC Champion ranks, but its kind of a weak card and the upcoming PPVs are stacked. With a better undercard it would do 300k+.
