God damn it...

From what I hear, someone broke his ribs in training... He's out of the Sexyama fight. I really wanted to see that.

It's true. Instead it's going to be Sexyama vs Chris Leben.

Same type of fight I guess, just wish it was Wandy. Hopefully Sexyama makes a statement.

Gah this sucks. I'm a huge Silva fan. I was really pumped to see him back.

But Leben puts on a show and I like him too. So still a good fight, but I would've like to see Silva more.

darn it! its pretty unfortunate the fight will not happen. Leben is a good replacement though but still . . .
