They'd likely have that fight in Australia given both guys are big names there and would probably main event an FX show or something.

You got the cold? :P

Call it a lack of sleep :ph34r:

But Lombard really doesn't like Bisping for some reason. I'm sure I've heard Bisping also say that if Lombard wants it and the time scale is right then he's more than happy to do it.

EDIT:

Here's the interview I listened to

Bisping was very critical of the standard of opposition Lombard faced before the UFC, he said it was a disgrace if Lombard got a title shot off the back of knocking out part timers like "John the baker from round the corner" IIRC. He also called him a midget.

Chris Weidman has been talking up a title fight over July 4th weekend in interviews this week. Not signed yet but looks to be the direction they are going in.

Looking forward to the entire main card on saturday.

Barao-McDonald could be epic, really hope if this one is a stoppage it at least goes 20mins+ as this is a real exciting technical fight potentially.

Going to take Barao by submission in the last round.

Taking Swanson by KO in the co-main, Poirier is pretty much level with him in my mind though so this fight is gonna be fireworks. Swanson can pick an opening better for me though so i'm going for him. Another go at Lamas for Swanson if he wins here? Would be a decent eliminator for the Aldo-Pettis winner.

Decent stoppage win for Manuwa in the last UK Fuel card and can see him stopping Diabate tomorrow again.

Nelson was impressive on the same UK Fuel card last time round, think he pretty comprehensively outpoints Santiago tomorrow but don't see a stoppage here. Nelson unanimous decision.

Te Huna-Jimmo is hard to call but will be full-blooded and fun.

Hard to argue with your assessement of tomorrow's card Christophe, should be an enjoyable one. Sass-Castillo on the prelims could be a sleeper as well, BJJ vs wrestling.

To add to the good MW discussion on here today, Jacare-Phillipou is in the works for the Brazil card with Belfort-Rockhold. Great fight. Jacare is the fighter coming over from Strikeforce I'm most excited about, love the guy. I think he'll submit Phillipou here. I actually think if there's anyone in the division who can beat Anderson it's Jacare. His striking is improving and he unquestionably has the best ground game in the division, possibly in all of MMA. A couple of wins and hopefully he's in a title match.

It's a tough tough fight. Phillipou is a tough b*****d, but I'm going to go with Marshy here. Jacare is just far too good on the ground.

Victory over Phillipou then a top-5 opponent and it'd be hard to argue against a title shot for Souza. Yeah, looking forward to that fight if it comes about.

That card is building nicely for an FX show.

I'd be tempted to just put the two winners from that night in against each other with the winner getting a title shot. Would probably match up just about timing wise if Anderson fights Weidman in July.

Just done with last nights action, only seen the main card plus the Kong fight after seeing it took fight and knockout of the night. Those who paid to see it certainly got their moneys worth. Only three stoppages all night and one of those was in the 4th round of the main event, so plenty rounds for your pounds there.

Te Huna-Jimmo was everything i expected it to be, Jimmo was really close to finishing it early, Te Huna was pretty banged up from that head kick. Surprised to see Te Huna try and take it to the mat so often but it worked for him, so fair play. Mousasi would've been a good match next for Te Huna if he wasn't tied up. Hope Jimmo doesn't fall back too far though, he can still do damage in this division.

Barao-McDonald was great, Barao looked very impressive after a sticky start. McDonald is going to hold this belt sometime down the line though. Looking forward to see him develop further. Hopefully we get Cruz-Barao sooner rather than later, you've got to think they'll have to get it done over the summer as it's 2 years since Cruz last fought come October.

Cub Swanson is ready for a go at the featherweight title soon, i'd love to see Swanson-Lamas now for the next shot at Aldo/Pettis.

Listening to some of the post-card media scrum stuff from last night.

White saying Barnett-JDS was a goer if Barnett had re-signed, shame we're not going to see that fight.

Wouldn't put Siver ahead of Swanson, maybe Korean Zombie actually, that's a fair shout. But either of them could just as easily get Lamas next and i don't think it'd be unjustified.

Siver and Korean Zombie are ahead of Swanson in the rankings and Lamas has already submitted him so I'd like to see him take on Korean Zombie then maybe a rematch with Lamas.

Korean Zombie was close to a shot before his injury. I'd be interested to see how Aldo would deal with him, should he get past Barao.

I wouldn't pay to much heed to those rankings. It's a concession to mainstream sports shows like SportsCenter etc. which are all about stats, brackets and rankings more than anything else. UFC will move guys about above and beyond that where they see fit.
