Frank Shamrock Vs Nick Diaz this Saturday on Showtime. I think Frank can win this one, but he needs to keep it standing. Diaz has great BJJ.

What do you guys think?

Thanks for the response! Its an honor talking to you guys. Crafty Dog you are definitely a highly respected martial artist in my book, and I share the same view points as you on alot of things. It would be an honor to meet you in person. It is my goal to attend one.

Training with Lyoto Machida would be amazing! He has pinpoint accuracy, his elusiveness makes him almost untouchable, and he can roll with the best of them. Truly well rounded, and definitely ahead of his time.

Its amazing to me that his primary trainer is his father. I think they train Shotokan?
I know his resumé is incredible! BJ Penn, Rich Franklin, Sokoudjou, Tito Ortiz, Thiago Silva, etc. I dont see him getting beat anytime soon.

What are your thoughts on Fedor Emelianenko? He is probably my favorite fighter, but I really want to see him sign with the UFC so we can see him fight people like Randy, Brock, and Carwin. I do think his next fight against Josh Barnett will be his toughest fight to date.

Respect to all from Nebraska,

It was an excellent card.

Shane Carwin KOd Gonzaga 69 seconds into the first round brininging his record to 11-0 all KOs. Nobodies made it out of the first round with him. Shane is a phenom and one of the most gifted athletes in the country. He reminds me of a younger, faster, stronger Randy Couture. He will definitely go far in the sport.

Matt Hamill headkicked Munoz harder than Ive ever seen, earning him a $60,000 KO of the night bonus.

The Rampage fight was great. He seemed a bit hesitant to pull the trigger even when he had Jardine hurt. Big respect to both fighters. Rampage won by decision.

Rampage and Rashad had a s**t talking session in the cage after the fight to hype their title fight, but it turns out Rampage is going to wait and fight the winner of Rashad Evans Vs Lyoto Machida for the belt. If Rampage would've taken the title fight in May that would be his 3rd fight in 5 months!!

Besides the officiating it was an excellent card. Not one submission the entire night.

The refs need to be more consistent. I mean one fight got stopped way to early, even Dana was mad, and during the Brown Vs Sell fight Sell took massive amounts of unneeded damage. Even Matt Brown was yelling at the ref. Dana was  hurt his arm trying to get the ref to stop it.  Big John really was the best ref in the game.

How long do you guys think Machida will hold the belt? Could be along time if he beats Page

PS. My names Rich and I have massive amounts of respect for the tribe. Hopefully one day I can get to Ca and participate.
