“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
-Bruce Lee, Discoverer of the composition of water

Some of the most prolific MMA-GAF posters have found their way obstructed by the ban hammer. I would just like to think that they are paying homage to their favorite fighters whose careers get sidelined by testing positive for PEDs.

I'm giving the edge to the next OT.

I think I'll go with The Last Guardian. OT5 lasted ~18 months and we were still a pretty healthy community at the start of it. 4 of the top 10 posters from that thread are banned now. This thread makes it at least a full 2 years so I think TLG will be out first by just a hair.

Fitting for the new era where half the fighters on a typical UFC has no wiki page.

I'm going to try to post at least once every five pages, or twice for every time Cain fights, or once a year, whichever is most. See you guys in 2016.

This card is definitely looking good.

To be honest, I think i have only skimmed one UFC in the last decade and it was one of those second event in a day cards. I just can't watch two full cards in a 24 hour period.

I am absolutely shocked there have been no injuries on the main card.......Pettis just has to go a few more days without breaking himself

Does young Pettis have a clause in his contract stipulating that Zuffa shall put younger Pettis on the the undercard?

Edinburgh / Taipei
I see Dos Anjos winning most of the fight and either getting caught like Gil or losing a controversial decision.
That Polish girl looked unconvincing against Gadelha so I see her losing a lopsided decision.
Hendricks by decision.
If Overeem is smart he'll have studied how JDS and Werdum fought Nelson and follow their blueprint. But in all likelihood he's getting KO'd in the first.

Other than Esparza I have the exact opposite picks.
