I hate the US. It's the year 2003, why in the hell can I not see this stuff.

Also, Yves Edwards deserves a shot at the UFC LW title in my eyes. I know he has some losses, but they are against the best. And I really think he has improved immensely in the past year. And he's pretty exciting to watch fight. I'd like to see him get a shot at Uno or Serra again.
