    There were a few uninformed posts prior to mine, but yes this Grand Prix is a tag team format. Hacksaw Jim Duggan remains a long shot, but a crowd favorite.

    Just want to point out that the UFC is not the one responsible for the drug testing, it's the Athletic Commission in the state.

    Ah, that's right -- that's why Sonnen could fight in Texas, but not California.

    I think most athletic commissions side with each other. If you are banned in California, the other commissions will also suspend you out of respect and courtesy to CAC.

    Don't know about Texas though, I think that's one of the AC that does its own thing.

    Yeah, I just heard Dana talking about Sonnen and how the UFC would honor his suspension. Then someone brought up a guy who tested positive, but was being allowed to fight in Texas. Can't remember the guy's name or if he was with the UFC or Strikeforce right after the buyout.

    LOL @ older Overeem. What a p***y. Epitome of looking like Tarzan and fighting like Jane.

    Dang that was a good ass fight. I think Masvidal will give Gilbert a really good challenge.

    LMFAO, what in the hell was that... seriously..

    and Overeem's was getting tagged left and right by Werdum out of all people.

    And Werdum should've been fined for dropping to the ground every 10 seconds and refusing to get up.

    This should put to rest the debate that the SF HW division is better than the UFC HW division. Terrible main event.

    Seriously, Cain, JDS or even Carwin would've dismantled Overeem standing up.

    Alistair is just lucking Werdum has no power.
