Rooting for the Rockets to win it!

If Clippers make a western conference finals I fear the world might suddenly collapse into the 5th dimension.

James Harden winning a championship before Durant and Westbrook would be pretty bitter sweet. I remember reading countless articles back in the day where the OKC media tried to portray Harden as the new age Manu Ginobli. The man who is okay living in the shadow behind the bigger stars. Boy were they wrong.

@marco724: Is it really? Normally I'd get excited about a card with 2 belts on the line but Rumble vs Cormier isn't really exciting me cause in the back of my mind no matter how they sell this as the "undisputed" Light Heavyweight Championship we all know Jon Jones is still champ until someone beats him. Hopefully Rumble wins it so we can maybe see Jones returns with a fight against Rumble. If Cormier wins it I can't imagine all the disservice he'd get cause of how he lost to Jones in December.

Weidman vs. Belfort doesn't interest me at all cause this is Belfort's first fight since getting off of TRT. This is literally Belfort's first fight in over 2 years. You are watching a prime Weidman fight a nearly 40 year old Belfort off of TRT.

Fight is stacked though so I'll buy it even though the 2 main events aren't selling me as they would. Donald Cerrone, Browne, Benevidez are there while the undercard is pretty good as well. You know what if I just watched the undercard I think I would end the night satisfied John Dodson, Urijah Hall, Dong Hyun Kim and Rose Namajunas are some of the fighters competing on the undercard.

@nightriff: You're probably right at 135, Dominick Cruz is 5'8 and has no issue with that weight cut. I just think 125 would leave him at a serious disadvantage. If Frankie wins this I just want to see him get a rematch with Aldo or punch in the face of Conor McGregor.

No clue who won that, both were evenly matched. I think you give it to Frankie cause of the amount of takedowns he had. Faber had a few shots on Frankie though.

@i_stay_puft: Edgar to Flyweight?

hah 125 might be a bit too much weight cut. I think featherweight is the right class even if he were to drop to bantamweight at 135 he'd probably lose his speed advantage.

Wow, just saw the Paul Pierce shot. Clutch shot for a win, another clutch shot that almost got a win, and a third shot short by a split second.

Someone mentioned Chris Paul being a legend for hitting a first round buzzer beater. But if Pierce's three shots were game winners/tiers... that would have been the stuff of legend.

Ray Allen in the Finals a couple years ago, that's still the shot that sticks with me in recent times.

It's been mentioned on the broadcast but it's kinda insane how much bigger Faber looks over Edgar, which probably speaks volume to how good Edgar was when he was at Lightweight and fighting bigger opponents.

Early start on the Manilla card today in case MMA fans forgot. Most of the card is finished but Urijah Faber vs. Frankie Edgar match is starting on Fox Sports 1.

Now I know what F1 fans feel like, the matches started at 5 am today where I'm at.

Rewatching Full Metal Panic. The series hasn't aged well to something like Cowboy Bebop or YuYu Hakusho but still enjoying it very much. I think it's fuckin ridiculous people are still trying to make a English Live Action film for this series. In terms of relevancy I think people have all but forgotten it.
