Video: Countdown to UFC 110


(Props: UFC.com via Card)

"The guy who won’t stop ’til you’re done, and the guy who can’t be stopped" — so says Dana White in the latest installment of Countdown when describing the UFC 110 main event between Cain Velasquez and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. It’s a matchup that seems to hit almost all the buttons. Besides the Irresistible Force/Immovable Object dichotomy, you’ve got the young up-and-comer vs. the war-weathered veteran, the ground-and-pounder vs. the submission artist, the American vs. the Brazilian. Nogueira is feeling as strong as ever thanks to his new S&C coach and his training at the stacked Black House gym. Velasquez is ready to fight the big names he’s watched since the sport was young. But is he ready to beat them?

Meanwhile, another Brazilian legend, Wanderlei Silva, faces a must-win situation against British star Michael Bisping. Bisping and his camp respect Silva, but Wandy’s UFC bonus checks and BJJ black belt don’t mean shit to them. We learn a few things about Silva in this show: He’s back with his original trainer Rafael Cordeiro, and looking to recapture the "old" Wanderlei Silva. He started his own gym partly because nobody wanted to train with him at Xtreme Couture. His fans are really his friends, and the fighters he develops are really his family. He snores, which is something his funny little manager knows all about.

Someone tell Bruce Buffer that the Q in Cain's name is pronounced as a K.

Bisping can't knockout or sub wandy so it will only be a win for bisping if he can take it to decision I'm takin wandy via rape choke face punch (jardine beatdown status) and I think cain might be able to hold noguiera down like does and throw 500 unanswered punches from the top and win a decision

I dont think its a foolish thought that Wandi could lose.

wandi better win, what will the people in my fighter pool think of me if he doesn't?

Sure, Bisping probably knocked out 3 dudes in a 3 month training camp, but those guys are WANDERLEI-FUCKING-SILVA! I saw Wanderlei knock out 5 dudes in just Countdown video alone! Lets face it, if Wanderlei lands a punch, Bisping is toast. There is a BIG difference between the aggression of Leben and Silva! You think Rampage would have told him about how fucking hard he hits, but then again he probably doesn't even remember being in Japan after that.

Sorry about all the exclamation marks, but all these people are foolish to think Wanderlei is going to lose.

Also, Nogueira via any way he wants!

@FreddyFangers

I agree with you on Bisping winning. I don't want him to because the devoted fan in me wants to see Wandy get a much needed win under his belt. Perhaps another performance like the one against Jardine. Unfortunately I don't see it happening.

I do have to disagree with you on his fights not being competitive though. His fight with Rich Franklin was a slugfest that arguably could have gone either way. He was hanging in with Rampage till he got caught. Something that could have happened to anyone who faces a focused Rampage. Wandy vs Chuck was fight of the freakin year and justifiably so. He's held in there with all his competition he just hasn't been able to get back to his dominant Pride ways. Much like others who have come over but I think most would agree despite his record he has been one of the more competitive and entertaining fighters.

Agreed Peon...Although Im nut sure Nogiera has it in him. Cain dropped a notch in my book after the trouble with Kongo. That notch took him from 1 to zero. As much as I hate to say this, I really dont think Wandi can beat Bisping. I truly believe Wandis well past done. I dont care if the fights are entertaining, they really arent at all competitive.

Watch Kongo get up after the fight is over with Cain, you can call it lay and pray all you want, but Kongo was fucked up. Also in the Rothwell fight Mazz did stop it at a horrible time but he was only stopping what would inevitably have happened anyway.

When Bisping first started talking I thought he had changed his attitude a bit, but no, he's still the boastful, overly confident fighter he was. Not to say that it doesn't help him—it absolutely does, but you would think that after the Hendo incident he might have changed his posture. Not a chance.

How can you not like Wanderlei? Seems like a genuine dude and fights like a maniac. Plus he's got a top-level funny accent.
PortlandMMA- February 17, 2010 at 2:41 pm
I don't want it to happen, but I see Bisping winning the Silva fight. I don't want to admit it either but I see Cain using his wrestling and top control to grind out a decision.
Geriatric Peon- February 17, 2010 at 2:38 pm
I really can't stand the promos about Cain "DESTROYING" all previous opponents after the BS Mazzi stoppage against Rothwell and the lay and pray job he did after getting rocked by kongo. GO BIG NOG

Hendo made Bisbing and Wanderlei snore louder than they ever snored before.
