    D.C. has already signed a fight contract with UFC.... Think its a 4 fight deal. There was an article a couple weeks ago, I believe they announced that when he was doing the commentary thing for the JDS vs CAIN 2 fight.

    I think All champs already signed new ufc agreements and gurgel said it was pretty much a must win to get a ufc contract. Those who lost were out.... But im sure guys that put on a good show will still get signed like noons....

    I think u could put tarec in there with erick silva, mousasi with glover/rampage winner, jacare with munoz or even lombard/okami winner, barnett/Big country... Im ready

    I checked out his record and he's 14-3 with the win over Marquardt being the most notable, by far. He's also beaten Scott Smith. Four wins in a row since a U.D. loss to Tyron Woodley.

    Does anyone see him as having a chance against gatekeepers like Matt Brown, Patrick Cote or even Amir Sadollah?
    He is Strikeforce's version of Martin Kampmann , good at everything great at nothing, normally wins on points by using distance

    This was pretty much what almost every SF card has been like: a bunch of worthless fights (worthless in the sense that the outcome really has very little meaning) where one guy is horribly overmatched. I also had to laugh every time they mentioned Cormier as the winner of the HW tourney. Many of us saw that as being a complete joke from Day 1 and it did not fail to disappoint.

    Not only did I say that it was a complete joke - but I actually picked Cormier to win the entire thing! (keep in mind, I picked him because 1) he wasn't originally in the tournament to begin with, and 2) I figured the "finals" would end up being two fighters who were never in the tournament)

    Holobaugh was basically a UFC guy taking a SF fight on short notice. He has a UFC contract according to his brother

    Ed Herman is the guy that has to be on the fence now. Jacare put such a beating on him. Ryan Couture can sure take a beating, I'd like to see him face a decent opponent like Mark Bocek to gauge his progression as a fighter. Another note, Pat Healy really didn't look that good in victory, he'd need a higher calibre opponent to measure his value. I'd book him in a fight against someone like Mike Ricci or Sam Stout.

    Really confusing post.

    Herman has always been an eh guy

    Ryan Couture showed he is more of a prospect putting him up against Boceck early own could Josh Grispi him. Myles Jury, Danny Castillo and Michael Johnson always stay relevant but never go anywhere - why not match him with them.

    As for the bad logic that Ricci and Stout who both have struggled w/ wrestlers would test an Healy is a miscue. Healy would be great fun against Jim Miller, but another fun fight would be Ebersole if he cuts to 155
