UFC Website Wastes No Time Rebranding UFC 106

Last week UFC 106 was headlined by the heavyweight title fight between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, and this was a very big deal.  Also on the card, Tito Ortiz would be rematching Forrest Griffin.  Not bad, but not enough to make your head explode either.  Only with Lesnar out due to illness and the fight tentatively rescheduled for January, Ortiz/Griffin II just got a bump up in status on UFC.com.  Does the UFC really believe that a fight between Griffin (who’s coming off two straight losses) and Ortiz (who has a loss, a draw, and another loss in his last three outings) is main event caliber, or is this just a temporary fix?

After taking a look at the rest of the confirmed card for UFC 106, let’s hope it’s the latter.  Right now, the best undercard match-ups the card has going for it are Dustin Hazelett vs. Karo Parisyan, Amir Sadollah vs. Phil Baroni, Ben Saunders vs. Marcus Davis, and probably Luis Cane vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.  There’s also reason to expect Paulo Thiago vs. Jacob Volkmann, but unless the UFC adds something big (perhaps that all-ninja tournament we’ve been hoping for) they could face a real pay-per-view letdown. 

If ever there was a time for Ortiz to prove to the UFC what a huge draw he still is, whether he has any meaningful wins in his recent past or not, it would be now.

Regarding UFC's "suspended" Youtube page, it's probably just some random mistake. Though I like to think it's karma for Zuffa being fucking Youtube nazis. Fights I understand taking those down, but show intros, fighters' entrances and interviews?

they have nobody yo step in.
all the heavy hitters just fought or ar out with injury.
so lets hope it goes to spike for free, but i cant see them doing 105 and 106 for free.
this will be the first ppv i havent order in like 6 years.
the shit is finally coming to the surface and people are seeing the ufc needs to put on better cards top to bottom.

brock lesnar has the piggy flu - the next step is that he turns into a zombie that only craves bacon. its all part of the oncoming a-pork-alypse

I say if it comes down to it they should just put Velazquez in there with Carwin. It was supposed to happen months ago so why not make it happen. I mean I highly doubt that Cain go hurt in that one sided thrashing.

aloha ben f and ben g

i just wanted to say that while i was watching 104 on saturday night at a local bar in baltimore, md, i met chris thomas from fight club on sirius radio. he said he knows you guys pretty well (in addition to other really high profiled mma fighters/writers/workers/etc.). chris thomas also told me to tell you guys i met you and to call in to the show. he was a really nice, genuine guy. i ended up talking to him for a while about all sorts of mma related material as well as the decision for rua/machida...im a huge fan of you guys and have now become one of chris thomas as well

by the way, he noticed i was wearing the HoF t shirt you guys gave me for my one comment of the week. its most def a kickass t shirt. hence, i wore it for ufc 104

If the UFC would just absorb the WEC then they wouldn't have all these problems scrambling to find main event worthy fights and we wouldn't have to suffer through sub-par main events. Plus the little guys could use the pay raise.
Evan Tanner- October 26, 2009 at 6:24 pm
yea right I doubt Machida can even walk right now, he's a cranky piss breathing dragon

I agree - Shogun / Machida 2. They have about 3 - 4 weeks, both looked pretty clean from their scrap, so conceivably there is time to head back into a camp and work towards it. Would be a bot of a hard turn around for them, but hey, I'm sure the challenger would be up for it - Machida may not be so keen.
parchy mcthirst- October 26, 2009 at 6:15 pm
ahaha, glad to see you find the name humorous man
Dubbayoo- October 26, 2009 at 6:14 pm
May as well put Machida/Rua 2 on here.. that'll teach 'em to put it in the judges hands. Or will it? I don't know. I don't care.. I'm just bored..
Evan Tanner- October 26, 2009 at 6:11 pm
i would like 2 punchy mcface!

tito is going to try and give forest his new virus, it's similar to H1N1 but originated from tito and jenna it's call J1T1

Professor Choas- October 26, 2009 at 5:35 pm
There's no way they will try to sell that shitty of a main event on ppv. They gotta add something or let us watch Tito lose again on Spike
for the love of mma- October 26, 2009 at 5:29 pm
@contraband that was great!! i hope cp send you t-shirt for that 1. j1t1 named after the twins lol
Bovice- October 26, 2009 at 5:21 pm
I'd rather pay to watch Tito's wife get another money shot rather than find it for free on the Internet than pay to watch this shit-show.
