Is it just me or do all of these guys look jet lagged as hell? It looks like they got pulled right off the plane and sent to the photo shoot. I'm sure Matt Hughes wasn't missed one bit (douchebag) It's looking like a great card though. Go figure they finally have a UFC event in Abu Dhabi and I'm not there this year.

Thats weird how small Belforts arms look there. I've never seen him like that before.
MonkeyNuts- January 28, 2010 at 7:35 pm
Well, the bright side of having this event on the other side of the planet is that it will be free!!!

pic one made my dick tingle

How did BJ manage an RVCA shirt for the shoot? I thought Dana had officially sent the Gestapo out for RVCA wearers?

Is Elias the stud that writes the shitty articles for CP that the Bens dont?

@steampunk - From wheres do you obtain your informations? I recall Vitor requiring a second try to make weight at 195. Granted, he said all he did was take a pee and he made it, but still for a guy who has never fought at 185, and who obviously didn't feel like cutting an ounce more than necessary to make 195, I really don't see him as a natural 185 pounder. I could swear that he was roughly 210-215 before the Franklin fight. And let's be honest, a good portion of Silva's weight is in that gargantuan cranium of his. Take off his head and he would prob be 185.

@ These two cackling hyenas...^^^^

I don't care who "burns' who...but in the spirit of fair play, "Keep chasing that dream, sport" is no better than "Happy Hunting..." or whatever the other dude said.

BTW, is it just me or is that damn spider logo just stupid looking? He's a bad, bad man...yet his logo looks like a cartoon sticker.
ReX13- January 28, 2010 at 1:40 pm
Elias>> C'mon, man. You had five hours to come up with something. Surely you can do better, right? Is "Happy hunting, champ" a cold burn at your school? I do enjoy your spirit though--try to channel this emotion and your next interview might be sufficiently snarky to entertain us. Keep chasin' that dream, sport.
Elias- January 28, 2010 at 1:13 pm
Rex13, thanks bud. I'll try. By the way, who are yo...naw, don't worry. It doesn't actually matter. To me, or anyone else. Happy hunting though, champ

Silva looks much bigger than Belfort. This is event is stacked!
831 Son- January 28, 2010 at 12:37 pm
I wish I can be at this event, or 111, or 113 or any event for that matter. Yeah and people that win the belt get to keep it. UFC just gives the new champ another new belt. Too bad thats the closest that Vitor and Edgar are to holding those belts in those pics as they are ever going to be. Anderson and BJ are going to smash their competition.
T_Durden- January 28, 2010 at 12:32 pm

I guess there's no in between in Dirty Jersey, huh? Either baked jersey shore, over tanned dudes, or my boy Frankie looking like an extra for the vampire flicks.

He's about 3 months early on the whole 'looking dead' thing. After BJ does his thing I guess it'll be more fitting.
Birdman- January 28, 2010 at 12:21 pm
Poor Frankie I wonder if the UFC knows where to send the body?
Birdman- January 28, 2010 at 12:20 pm
I wonder if Anderson will even allow Vitor to hit him. He didn't against Forrest so I was just curious if he had decided he wasn't going to allow anyone else to hit him.
mthomas- January 28, 2010 at 12:15 pm
Looking @ that first picture, I guess Renzo and BJ have patched up their differences...
peckawoodd- January 28, 2010 at 12:01 pm
Wow in that top picture you really see the difference in size between Penn and Silva. And holy shit is Edgar a midget. Too bad the 145lb. division gets no love, otherwise I'd tell him to cut down.
VadersAsthmaProblem- January 28, 2010 at 11:56 am
T-Durden - what'd you expect, man? Edgar is from New Jersey. MMAGroundfighter had the best comment re. what BJ is doing with 2 belts.

I also wonder where the hell Hughes is for all this. And by that I mean, his absence shows how relevant he is in the UFC these days.
wesley830- January 28, 2010 at 11:44 am
Damn, Edgar looks like shit.
just some dong- January 28, 2010 at 11:31 am
"One of these guys is not like the others...

One of these guys just doesn't belong..."

T_Durden- January 28, 2010 at 11:06 am
If Frankie doesn't get some sun before his fight, he's likely to burst into flames in between the 1st and 2nd round (if it goes that far). Wow, that man is pale...

Rich Riley- January 28, 2010 at 10:24 am
Thats one hell of a card. Even though the winners are beyond obvious. should be fun
inverted triangle poke- January 28, 2010 at 10:00 am
Also Renzo is doing his best Nick Diaz impressions.
steampunk22- January 28, 2010 at 9:59 am

Of course Silva looks bigger, he walks around much heavier than Vitor. Silva in the past has walked around at close to 215-220 and sometimes as much as 230 and since the even is still months away, he hasn't cut any of that weight. Vitor stays pretty close to 185 so thats a pretty big difference. When they fight is closer they will look much closer in weight.

And yeah, the 5'o'clock shadow on Silva is pretty badass for some reason.
