Great Khali in mma, heavyweight questions

1. Why does UFC have a weight limit of 265 pounds? are fighters that cannot cut to 265 usually bad?

2. Was wondering how Great khali would do in a fight against normal sized heavyweights such as JDS, Cain, Mark Hunt, etc (if there was an openweight fight). His frame is easily bigger than any UFC heavyweight, and his frame id say is much bigger than Emmanuel Yarborough but he isnt fat, he is solid muscle. Ive seen Yarborough fights but he is really fat, while khali is pure muscle at 7 foot 4 with a massive bone structure. Im not trolling, just curious. Most fights ive seen where guys are that big they are usually fat with smaller frames.

UFC’s Anderson Silva: Coming back feels like the first time

In a great interview with Fox Sports, long-time UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (above) talks about his emotional reaction to fans welcoming him back. “The Spider” says that “it’s the same [as] my first time when I walking to [the] Octagon. I’m very happy.”

He sure looks it. Silva goes on to talk about his Black House middleweight teammates like “Jacare” Souza who he says have first dibs on any new title shots, a possible super fight with Georges St. Pierre, should the welterweight return, and how Brazilian fighters need to work to evolve their games, and much more.

Check it out above, and let us know if you’re looking forward to Silva returning to the cage next year against Nick Diaz!

‘Bad Boy’ Leonard Garcia retires, leaves enduring legacy of amazing fights

Coming the day before the sport’s three biggest promotions, the UFC, Bellator and the World Series of Fighting, all staged televised fight cards, the news hasn’t gotten all that much attention.

But featherweight Leonard Garcia’s decision to retire following a loss to Daniel Pineda at Legacy FC 37 was a stinging blow to mixed martial arts.

Garcia was never the most talented fighter, but he gave every ounce of what he had to give every time out, and he’ll be remembered as one of the most exciting fighters of his generation.

Garcia, 35, retires with a pedestrian 18-13-1 mark. In his biggest bout, he was submitted by Mike Brown via triangle choke in the first round in a bout for the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight title.

But it’s not titles or significant wins that made Garcia so memorable. It was his desire to put on a show, a willingness to accept two punches to land one, that made him popular and makes his retirement a dark day for the sport’s fan base.

He won Fight of the Night four times in the UFC and twice in the WEC. He also had a Knockout of the Night in the WEC and his April 24, 2010, bout at WEC 48 with Chan Sung Jung, aka “The Korean Zombie,” remains high on the list of any fans’ compilation of top MMA bouts.

Garcia fought in a division with men infinitely more talented, but he made himself a name by sheer heart and desire.

The sport would be better with a lot more fighters with the fighting spirit that Garcia brought every time out to the cage.
